Amazing owner and property. Cannot speak highly enough of both. Awesome much needed family holiday. Thanks so much.

This house is in a lovely location and is clean and modern. Unfortunately we were put off by the owner staying with us on arrival for nearly an hour, chatting and making herself a coffee to take to her sleep out next to the house. We had arrived late and just wanted to settle in and relax straight away. However, this may not bother some people so this is a nice place to stay.
Response from Owner
Wow! I certainly have no intention of invading guests' space. I always spend some time (not close to an hour) showing new guests the quirks and other aspects of the bach that I need them to be aware of. In this case I was there for longer as there was an extra person that I wasn't expecting, which was no problem, but I had another bedroom to make up, after they arrived. Also, I usually leave making myself a farewell coffee until guests have arrived so i can demonstrate how to use the manual espresso machine. However, in this group, none of them wanted to use it, so obviously didn't appreciate the couple of minutes I took to make my brew. I certainly apologise for the inconvenience I seem to have caused.

What an amazing location, right on the water's edge. Thank you Dorothy, we really enjoyed our stay. For a family of 5 the house had plenty of room, included everything we needed and was very clean. The kids swam all day, jumping off the bridge, kayaking, and the pontoon was a bonus. If they were really energetic they biked to the camp store for an ice block (3 mins away). We will definitely be back again. Thanks Dorothy
Response from Owner
So pleased you enjoyed my piece of paradise! Thank you for taking good care of it. Your children added a lot to the neighbourhood kids' holidays, too. Families like yours are my ideal guests.
