Marvel in the comfort of the romantic lounge and its solid fuel burner, separate family and dining room and kitchen offering a bespoke timeless design. Three well-proportioned bedrooms including sumptuous master suite, complements the beautifully updated modern family bathroom and additional shower combined within the laundry facilities for added convenience. Immerse yourself in the lush serenity of the well-tended gardens and explore the majestic wonderland of flora and fauna and the harmonious sounds of native birdsong.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Beautiful house
Loved this place. Its a big house with a big backyard perfect for a getaway from the city life. 3 bedrooms which are quite big and well designed. I have taken one point off because the beds were 2 single beds joined to make a kind bed topped up with a foam so you could actually feel the gap between the mattress. Also no wifi on the first day. When you pay $1000 for an accommodation you expect certain services. Another minus point because the check out time was 12 pm. But the owner barged in with his crew at 10 am saying the check out was 10 am. It was clearly mentioned in our email 12 pm checkout. But he wasn't convinced and gave us unreasonable reasons. We felt rushed and got the feeling that we were being kicked out of the home.
