5/5 Excellent

Great stay at Jimmy’s
We had a group of 16 staying here and everything went really smoothly. The property is great for big groups with lots of bathrooms and bedrooms and a lot of space for kids to run around. Lots of animals and kengurus around. We ordered woollies grocery delivery that got delivered hours before our arrival and we were happy to see that the items were put in the freezer and fridge for us before we got there. That was super nice. Would highly recommend to other groups.

5/5 Excellent

Great House for Big Groups
The house was perfect for a big group of people. Everything was very clean and had a very good layout. The fire pit was great to sit around in the evening. We all loved our stay here and hope to come back soon :)

5/5 Excellent

Great location for big groups.
Perfect house for big groups of people. Great locations with not much near by but still a short drive to coffee shops/ food. House was clean and well organised and has a great layout. We had the best time.
