Gorgeous space, perfect for a peaceful escape. Very tasteful decor and so great to have a gas stovetop & fully equipped kitchen. My friend & I had a wonderful, relaxed & inspiring overnight stay and will definitely be back. The rosellas & parrots clearly enjoy your home too. A bit of a magic spot really. Thanks Jen!

Such a perfect little home away from home. Nestled amongst beautiful scenes of nature and close to everything you needed. Communication was exceptional and everything we needed was already there for us. We will definitely be back!!!

A quiet, clean, compact little place in the leafy hills. Jen made us feel comfortable for a lovely weekend with friends. The house had everything we could want/need, and was clean and easy to find. We would gladly come back in future! Thanks a lot Jen :)

The photos don't do this place justice, such a beautiful cosy place and perfectly decorated. Our only disappointment was that we paid for 5 people, as the posting said there were single mattresses available and unfortunately one was not, neither was any bedding for the 5th person. Otherwise a perfect stay. The kitchen had all of the essentials for cooking plus more and the location was so serene. Would definitely stay here again.
