5 star location, just a primo spot. We arrived by boat so don't know what the road in is like. I would say its 4 wheel drive. Very comfortable but basic. I would recommend a few more basics such as supplying a little bit of cooking oil, metal jug for the coffee machine, it was extremely hot in the back area, so maybe a sun umbrella to use out the back and the table out the front. But if you are visiting, take EVERYTHING you need if you plan to cook inhouse. there is no oven, but there is a banquet frying pan and a webber bbq, and a small hob. so all cooking is covered. Hosts were great.
Hi my reason for this feedback is following points. 1. Outside of the property is well maintained. 2. Inside of the property was bit lower than expected. Door knows were loose etc 3. Inside furniture doesn't present quality. 4. Electric hob is too old to work out which way is low or high. 5. Additional beds were far away from first property. All the beds were bunk beds. 6. Shower door was catching. 7. No means of air conditioning for hot days. Property profile pictures doesn't represent actual state of property. Property Manger was helpful. Even it is highlighted 4x4 is required to reach property. Some part of the road needs improvement.
