We stayed with a large family group - 19 of us - in August 2011 for ten days. We had actually stayed here before and booked this place again as we had loved the BBQ area on our previous visit and found this a great place to gather for a large group. The individual units allowed all of us to...

We stayed in a large open plan style room that could accommodate up to 5 guests, perfect for a family. The property itself is nice and the pool area is...
