Gorgeous place! Highly recommend!
Fantastic house, great views, heaps of room. We stayed downstairs (fully equipped) while the m/law and kids were upstairs. The family (x me) is old Russell and they all loved the place. The house is modern and clean and the spa is fantastic ! We were up for the primary school reunion and everyone had a wonderful weekend. And the kiwis and native bird calls were a bonus. Highly recommended. .
Excellent stay in all aspects. Nice big house that actually fits a big family (unlike these houses that states fits 8 ppl where they fit 5 and the rest on sofabeds). This is a 2 story holiday (fully equipped and furnished) house 4 double brms, one of them with 2 single beds and 2 bathrooms. I've enjoyed my stay and will be coming back, I've recommended this to my family friends and colleagues so expect few calls next week. I love: - the spacious house - the privacy it offers (curtains and semi-private spa) - I'll enjoy it next time that I can use the lower unit for myself and the top for my parents family Comments that would make this house the most perfect: - the few unwanted visitors (cockroaches) but I think that's the weather related. - Carport is steep, couldn't reverse the car backwards. - I wish this house had blinds to the toilet and bathroom just as private the rest of the house is. Again, would love to be there again.
Response from Owner
I don't understand the comment about blinds in the toilet and bathroom. The toilet has a single high window with frosted glass. The bathroom has frosted glass and curtains.
