    Review by Carol (Stayed in March)

    This property was great for our group of 9 with the extra rooms in unit at back. Plenty of space for us all with great facilities, loved the outdoor and garden areas. Linen supplied was good quality etc. Fell in love with swimming every day at Palm Beach.
    One suggestion from one person with eyesight problems maybe a safety line be added to large windows/ranchslider, this might also help birds from flying into it. We certainly left the BBQ cleaner than what we found it but guys were OK about extra cleaning. Simply a great property and well loved by owner

    Review by Greg (Stayed in November)

    Fantastic place for group of friends. Very interesting decor, en suites for nearly all bedrooms, nicely located. We also appreciated the flexibility around checking in/out times.

    Reasonably priced and highly recommended *****
