This is an amazing location if you want to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Great to relax on the decking and watch the boats come and go and enjoy a cold beer or two!

Herons View is perfect if you want to get away from it all and be surrounded by beautiful scenery. Don't take too much stuff as you have to row it all over. My teenage kids were a bit freaked out by lack of wifi but then got really into life on the river. Loved it!

HI Bing I am so glad that you enjoyed the peace and privacy of Heron's vierw and the unique experience it offers people who stay there. Due to access by boat only it is impossible for us to have someone who cleans the property in between visitors, therefore we trust visitors to leave the property as they would like it to be when they arrive. The property was thoroughly cleaned at the end of April and we go down regularly to make sure it is well cleaned. I am sorry if there was some dust- we recently had the bathroom redone so maybe there is still a bit of dust in the air.
