The property is exactly as described except for the view, as that cannot be put into words! Better than depicted in the photos. We will be recommending to all 'We really enjoyed our stay at Western's View. The place was equipped better than any other place we have stayed - everything we needed was there. The views from every room and the deck were wonderful. My husband loved feeding the wallabies every evening - even giving them names! This was a lovely place for us to rest & recover from a difficult few months' Jane 'Thank you for a beautiful stay. The whole place is gorgeous, so clean and well equipped; everything we could need. It was so peaceful and wonderful to wake up to such a beautiful view each morning. Wish we could have stayed longer. So peaceful and truly a home away from home.'
