1/5 Terrible

Bad communication, accommodation good
Everything booked online, good communication with host, even early check-in accommodated...on early arrival, access code provided didn't work, tried a few times, didn't worry as we wanted to get a few hrs fishing in and figured we would sort later...on arrival back to property, tried code again, then started ringing contact number, no answer for 3hrs, then finally let in after 7pm and no set of keys left for entire stay. Not impressed, however accommodation suited our needs. Outreach Crew

Relaxing Retreat- wish we stayed longer
Relaxing Retreat- wish we stayed longer Fabulous and beautiful home away from home! We will be back!! Definitely the perfect location and great property for our family celebration! The home was so welcoming, neat and tidy! There are many mozzies, midgies and March flies but that was expected in the NT

We had a great weekend away with all our mates. The house was awesome to stay at. So close to the boat ramp for all the fishing that we did. We have stayed here a few times and we will keep coming back!

Beautiful place
In a beautiful bush retreat approx 15ks from beach, very peaceful. Enjoyed our stay but had a power outage for 5 hours on last night just as we were about to play cards..... damn! The deck is lovely, the surrounding bushland is great for walking, lots of tracks. Very comfortable place.
