  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities

Great location, close to the wineries. Lisa was excellent in her knowledge of the area and made us most welcome. Her communication was fantastic. Lovely quiet place with a beautiful vineyard view and kangaroos hoping around. Bus picked us up at the property for event and dropped us home. So easy. Very clean, with everything that you would need was supplied. Just needs a little update. Will stay there again.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The location was excellent but furnishings and bathroom was quite dated. Television seemed new. We could make our own coffee and tea and could have made a light meal if we wanted. Everything was clean and people very nice and helpful who owned the property. Signage indicated it was a farmstay.
