We loved the bush land setting and wished we could have enjoyed more than one night - maybe next time! The hosts Tam & Charles were very down to earth and made us feel comfortable from the start. We had originally booked a Queen Snug but as there was a King Snug available we were given a free upgrade which was great, as the king came with its own BBQ on the adjoining patio. The communal lounge/kitchen area was a great added feature and as we were the only guests that night had it all to ourselves. We were also able to enjoy the large spa pool on our own while gazing up at the sky and enjoying a glass of wine. Breakfast provisions of toast, jams, cereals, teas etc were provided also which worked in well with our self cooked BBQ the next morning. I would highly recommend bringing some provisions as you will need to drive up and down a winding, unmade road to access the property, which may be a little daunting for less confident night drivers. I would only make one suggestion for improvement to the hosts; the towels in the rooms could really do with replacing. Otherwise, we had a very pleasant stay and would happily return.
