The house was very comfortable and set up really well for children with booster chair, plates, bowls, cups and cutlery provided. Having access to the row boat and kayaks was a draw card for us and the ease of being able to use them and the provision of life jackets was great. The pacific Palms area has so much to explore. We'll be back!

The home has a lovely layout and was beautifully presented. The views from the bedroom and lounge/dining room are lovely and peaceful. The weather also turned on the charm for us. We will certainly be back.

Absolutely amazing! Thoroughly enjoyed it and the place was like a home away from home. Such a beautiful spot, wonderful view we will definitely be back !

Jane's place was lovely and spacious. It's in a beautiful area not too far from some attractions such as Forster and Seal Rocks. The house itself is very big - too big for just myself and my partner! It's furnished beautifully. Unfortunately our stay was not as we thought it would be due to the horrible weather we had so we did not get to enjoy the kayaks or the tinnie. We also experienced a blackout on our last night there which lasted a few hours (we ended up going to bed because it happened at night) Obviously neither of these issues were a fault of Jane's - just bad timing. Jane was lovely and good with communication.

Great to have the coffee pods and cooking implements. BBQ was great. Winston the dog loved the garden. Beautiful view out across the lake and great dog friendly beaches a short drive away.
