          We stayed here for 3 nights over labour weekend. The hosts were welcoming and friendly. The place is spotless and a home away from home. The cleaners came and services daily, doing a great job. Keep it up guys!

          These units are very well presented, clean and have very comfortable beds which you appreciate after travelling. Also the showers are fantastic along with the spa bath. Breakfasts are available and looked delicious as they were being delivered past my door.
