Stayed in Riverside lodge 1, just amazing huge house. Location was something special, grape vines, Quails, winding river, quiet and total privacy. Tastefully decorated with all the essentials. Beautiful views and the pool was fabulous. Breakfast was lovely and I would definitely return.

Not only is the property sensational, the whole experience from booking to leaving is just a delight! Ro makes it all happen with ease, is responsive and nothing is ever a problem. If you haven't had a black barn... More

After a bad start to our day (cracked windscreen and poor directions from travel agent) we finally arrived at Rush Cottage. Don't let that put you off its actually very easy to find. Our hostess Francis was very helpful and apologetic we hadn't got there sooner even though it wasn't her fault and invited us to the cellar door just... More

We stayed at Black Barn for four nights to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday with another couple. We stayed in The Black Barn itself, a fantastic, self contained home away from home- perfect for two couples. The accommodation comprises of two separate bedrooms, each with an an ensuite, with ample amenities. For us the best features are the enormous kitchen-... More

We stayed at the Black Barn itself for 4 nights. Two double rooms, each with on-suite. Sensational location near the vineyards. Rabbits and pheasants on our lawn in the early mornings. Ewes and lambs in the adjoining paddock in the late afternoon. We set a fire each evening. The kitchen was well stocked and had an easy to use layout... More

We recently stayed in Poplars 2 for 3 nights and didn't want to leave! This place is absolutely stunning. Everything from the peaceful location & phenomenal views across the Tuki Tuki Valley to the property itself with modern contemporary furnishings; this place is truly unreal. Admittedly, we can be quite picky about properties that we stay in, however at Poplars... More

We recently stayed at Poplars 1 with our friends. This property had everything we wanted. It is in a stunning location and the property is spotlessly clean and of fixtures and fitting are high quality. All three bedrooms have good sized en suites and there is plenty of space to lose each other. This is a house for entertaining in.... More

Our family spent only 2 nights at Riverside Lodge but it felt like 4! Rural setting not far from town and the many wineries. The house itself is fully equipped with everything you could imagine. The breakfast provisions were plentiful and was enough for our 2 days. The house does need a little maintenance but overall was a fantastic country... More
