Fantastic location, in the wilderness on a farm, beautiful views from all windows. Very clean and warm. The layout is fantastic for groups, with lots of bathrooms and a big communal area. The only let down was the size of the kitchen and amenities for 15. Small oven and 4 burner so we struggled to cook. However, if you're staying in summer there's a huge BBQ and even a spit roast. Wish we would have known in advance as we wouldn't have attempted a roast dinner in a small oven . Owners were great with all the questions we had before we travelled. Get to the wineries if you are in the area. You can book a maxi through southern highland taxis for a very reasonable price.
