Absolutely gorgeous retreat/property - the atmosphere is simply beautiful and relaxing, such a nice place to escape to - the views were absolutely spectacular - super comfy bed, we slept so well! Nice balcony to sit & look at the gorgeous view, and privacy screens so you feel you are alone in your own area - great common area that had everything you could possibly need with kitchen, big lounge, fireplace, and more beautiful verandah space - just a lovely place to stay and get away from it all - great place for couples to stay! Tracey our host was amazing, couldn't have been more friendly and helpful - we'll definitely be back that's for sure :-)
