It was such an amazing house. The place was exactly as it appeared in the photos, if not better. Communication was easy and the house was in perfect condition. Would definitely stay there again and will recommend to friends and family.

Sayed Rebehy - 23rd August 2020

Great place! Clean and very well decorated with amazing views. The house has everything you need with a very well stocked kitchen. 6 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This place has everything you need for a nice and relaxing weekend away with the family. The house is huge, with plenty of room for everyone. We have 5 kids in our family and this place was perfect to accommodate us all. The place was sparkling clean when we arrived and they thought of every single detail such as finding a drawer full of tea and even dairy-free got chocolate. The kids loved feeding the horses and the surroundings are just beautiful. We’ll definitely be back again!

We recently had a fantastic stay here with a group of 12 friends. The Airbnb was very large and clean with amazing facilities both inside and out - with a fully equipped kitchen and living area perfect for entertaining and awesome garden with pool, pond and paddocks! The Airbnb is professionally managed so was great communication with swift responses and no issues. Would highly recommend

Tanya - 3rd January 2020

We had such a wonderful time at this property. Both the interior of the home and the surrounding land are so spacious! Ideal for big groups, we never at any time felt like we were on top of each other. We had lovely group lunches most days on the long tables and as for the kids they loved to roam wild and free. They rode their bikes, played football and swam in the pool all day. We will definitely be looking to hire this place out again. We loved every minute of our stay

Very good managing agent and great property!
