This property, although a little run down, is in a beautiful setting a short drive into Kiama & an even shorter drive to stunning waterfalls. Our kids loved the pool, spa & tennis court but were a little apprehensive about the vegan/vegetarian breakfast. If we ever visited the area again, we would be happy to stay here again.
