Noelene apartments are comfortable homely with rustic charm. They have all the amenities you could possibly want and more. Wood fire so cosy, bed and bedding clean with 5 star rating for us. We loved our stay waiting out some bad weather. The bonus of the free wine and the offer to purchase her great value honey was also very clever. Thanks so much Noelene !!

I am a nurse, I have worked in Qld and Vic. so I stand by cleanliness and comfort in my Apartments. I have 3 grown up kids, and 3 grandchildren. I care for my grandson every 2nd weekend and half of the school holidays. I love pets and animals, I enjoy renovating, and have lots to do! My hobbies include farming, bee keeping (try my honey) gardening, reading and my grandchildren. I enjoy a wine at the end of my day. If something needs repair, please leave me a note. I would love to hear your comments in my guest book.
