Guestbook comments from the owner

We have many thank you's that you may look at but a lot of our guests return on an annual basis now and some two or three times a year. We think this speaks for itself.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect mountain retreat, with the most spectacular views of the mountains. Michelle the owner was so kind, helpful & welcomed us as a part of her family. My 2 boys aged 10 & 7 had the best holiday ever exploring the forest, bouncing on the trampoline, playing in the tree house & splashing in the pool, whilst my teenage daughter enjoyed relaxing & soaking up the sun around the pool. What a fantastic place with the most lovely people, cant wait to return again.
