Possibly not the most eloquent way to describe it, however this place was so awesome it took the words out of my mouth, rearranged them and then just created gurgling noises.
We loved everything about it.
The rooms? Wow
The food? We regretted going out and eating elsewhere. It was just.... oh!
The location? As long as you have a car you can easily get around to see the local area. It's also perfectly placed in a bushlands/beach area so you can walk down to the beach on a secluded track. The view and feeling on the otherside is wonderful.
Outdoor spa? I overused the spa mix and my funpolice partner had a heart attack but you can't fault the hosts on his bubble-phobia.
The hosts? Lisa was so lovely and kind whenever she came round to bring us our meals or let us know what was going on. Paul was the quiet culinary master stationed inside the main house. I wanted to hug him but felt that perhaps he may of been a little weirded out.
It's all in the details. You can tell Lisa and Paul have gone to a lot of trouble to make sure the tiny things are right. Hand written notes left next to bikkies, wonderful linens and furniture, welcome sign in unsual places, and making sure there was lactose free product available for my dairy-fearing partner.
Impressed. I think this is a one of a kind in Victoria, probably Australia. It was oh so terribly romantic.
All in all, i didn't wantt to stay for a getaway, i wanted to move in permanently.
