We have been lucky to stay at this beautiful property twice now. Both times in winter and it has been so cosy, warm and extremely relaxing.We love nothing more than waking to the sounds of the native bird song. You want for nothing more than extra time a this home. If you want to go to the West Coast, Jude has another property at Lake Kaniere that mirrors this one in every way. Thank you Jude.

My entire family was shocked at how wonderful this holiday house was! The photos do not do it justice. Very tranquil with a beautiful garden, native birds and a running creek. Would recommend to anyone I know! We loved every minute. Thank you for the awesome memories

Thank you so much for the lovely comment. I am so pleased you enjoyed the house and your stay. Sounds like you felt like I do every time I pack up to go i.e. I don't want to leave! I really like sharing the house with good people as it is a great place to chill out and relax. Appreciate you taking the time to comment. See you again😂
