beautiful cottage under a canopy of trees
These cottages in Olinda are magnificent, if you want to connect to each other and nature this is the paradise that is waiting for you. Mike and Lesley the owners are great down to earth people and bend over backwards to ensure your stay is everything you want it to be. Soaking in the hot tub looking up through the glass windows into the star filled sky was absolutely awesome. The decor of the rooms is perfectly matched to the external setting and has a calming ambience about it. My husband and I spent our 40th wedding anniversary at this magical place and we will be returning in the near future to relax and reconnect.
