Felt a bit daunting on arrival , the drive up to the retreat had us all guessing what we had booked. We were met by scott at the entrance and our fears evaporated. By the time we pulled up at the accommodation the veiw took our breath away. Karyn welcomed us as if we were long lost friends and the stay increased with pleasure at every level as the days rolled on. The time came for us to move on to our next destination and we were sad to go but have made a promise to revist karyn , Scott and the family. 10 out of 10 with no reservations.
