5/5 Excellent

stunning property, perfect for large groups in any season
Our stay at valley view was perfect - Jodie the property manager was super helpful and easy to communicate with, the property was perfectly clean and looked even nicer than photos. The house was enormous and really comfortable, lots of common areas and nice open layout, cosy vibe for a winter stay (we stayed in summer but it rained the whole time so this was ideal!) would love to come back in sunny weather and use the pool/tennis courts and see the view! Really cute friendly wallabies hang out in the garden as well which is a fun touch. Loved our stay, would stay again!

5/5 Excellent
