Quiet retreat ,just needs some attention to detail
We booked this last year and noticed just before we arrived that the property had sold. When we arrived the inside was clean ánd furnished attractively.. The inhouse brochure said the olive oil was estate grown but when I tried to buy some,the owner admitted it was store bought . The coffee machine had no instructions which were promised and the coffee pods were unpleasant to taste. The piso ignition on the bbq didnt work and matches were hard to find and didn't light it anyway! There were some cutlery items missing. I spoke to the owner as we were leaving and he said they were moving out the next week. The grounds were lovely ,kangaroos and wallabies right up to the deck. Some attention to detail is required for the cost of the three nights.

Lovely, welcoming and tidy stay. Well designed modern house with all amenities. Fun to explore the area and meet the farm animals, wild kangaroos and birds. Covid-safe as everything was properly cleaned and we had the whole house to ourselves.
