A lovely, comfortable house that is very well equipped and clean. It's setting is delightfully quiet and secluded and is located close to some very fine walks. Native birds were plentiful and the bellbird song was a treasure. We didn't need it as we encountered fine weather, but there is very a extensive library and heaps of games and puzzles to keep you entertained should the weather turn bad. We rate this property very highly and recommend it unreservedly.
