We had a fantastic time. We felt so comfortable and relaxed in the house. Dad loved Foxtel too, watched all the rugby games. The massage chair was good too.

Rebecca and Kieran have a fabulous family home in a great location. This stay, by far, was the most welcoming and organised of any stay we have had!!!
