Great hosts and convenient location but the property needs serious renovation - air conditioning unit didn’t make much difference in the room when the temperature outside was 30+ C, shower didn’t work properly either as it sprayed all directions when it was on and furniture is very old and tired. At the moment, I would rate it as 2+ star hotel at the best.

A lovely place to stay. The room is big with everything you need. The bed is comfy too. The best thing about his place is the nature around. You could wake up to see kangaroos, rabbits, wild ducks and more around the property. The lovely breakfast basket prepared by the property owner is delivered to your door step. We had our croissants and sour dough bread, butter spread, fresh fruits, orange juice etc, under the tree in front of our rooms. What a great relaxing place. Highly recommended!

    The room was in a guesthouse building in a lovely, secluded cottage-style garden overlooking the vines, with a pool to the side. The bed was comfortable, the room clean and homely and breakfast was simple and good quality (fresh coffee grounds provided in the room). The owners were friendly and full of knowledge and recommendations regarding the area. They were very helpful and accommodating- even giving us a lift to a local restaurant on check out!
