5/5 Excellent

Absolutely Perfect!
We loved our stay! It is in a brilliant location and it’s just a gorgeous, sun-filled home that had everything we needed. Breakfast on the deck with that view was spectacular and we enjoyed playing games around the dining table and watching TV. The beds were comfy and the blinds in each room allowed a good sleep in. We will definitely visit again!

We really enjoyed our stay at Up the Back. The extra little touches from Annie made it that little bit special. The space and playroom were great for the kids and helped on those rainy days. Would definitely stay again on our next trip to Bicheno!
