“Home away from home. Hidden gem!”
Reviewed 6 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed in the private room with private bathroom for $90 per night. Very clean and spacious converted house. Large kitchen area with everything you need. BBQ area outside in the sunshine with tables and chairs. Garage available for your car. Great location. Opposite the park and local butchers (which we would highly recommend) on the northern end of the shopping strip. Very friendly owner who met us when we arrived and showed us around the house. Would highly recommend this accommodation to singles, couples, groups and families. Laundry and wifi also available. We will stay here again when we return to the area.
