          We stayed four nights and had a wonderful time. The food in the restaurant is excellent. Both dinner and breakfast-so healthy and tasty with generous servings. The room outlook is so relaxing. Rooms are older but perfectly clean. The hosts are welcoming and helpful.

          Great stay! Quiet relaxing area, comfortable and clean bedroom, delicious food (with use of local produce) and lovely and caring hosts. The view from the deck is amazing. Plenty of birds and wallabies to observe.
