“Very comfortable”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We spent 3 nights with 6 adults in Polin and Polin Villa in July 2015. The weather was quite cool and slightly rainy so we weren't able to enjoy the outdoor facilities but the indoor comforts were more than adequate.

The property is situated at the end of a long quiet road (Mistletoe Lane) so it's beautifully dark at night and really quiet. For tourists it's also surrounded by kangaroos which even thrilled us Aussies.

This property is also a rarity in that it has a bathroom for every bedroom and another one besides. That's great when traveling with friends - saves a lot of trouble. The bedrooms are also very large and comfortable - the bed we slept in was the most comfortable we've had in years, better than our own bed at home. The decor is simple but practical and attractive. Despite being fully air-conditioned the log fire also came in very handy in the cool weather.

The lounge and dining facilities are very spacious. There's an upstairs retreat outside the two upstairs bedrooms as well as the formal lounge and dining room downstairs.

The kitchen is probably the smallest room in the house but is reasonably well equipped for basic cooking. Naturally it has a dishwasher and the the basics for those that want to eat in. The only warning here is that the sharp knives are truly hopeless. If you plan to cook for yourselves you mike like to consider bringing a sharp knife from home.

Our stay was arranged by one of our friends, who could not have done better!

If you ask nicely, you will receive a very special Polin wine named Limb of Addy Shiraz. Perfect.

It is a great central location surrounded by working vines and endless attractions. There is space to spare so it feels just like your own.
