We stayed here over new year 2010/2011. It's right on the lagoon and consists of several bungalows and lodges located around the site. My inlaws had a cabin that was up some outside stairs amongst the trees. It almost felt like a treehouse, except that it was very luxurious inside with its own little kitchenette. Me and my husband stayed in The Boathouse, right on the water. It's tiny but lovely. Very romantic with a big bath, fridge and doors that open to a little patio and straight onto the lagoon. You can sit in bed and watch the ducks. Breakfast is on the patio if fine, overlooking the water, or indoors in the nicely furnished lounge. Incidentally, if you're interested in sculpture, these ladies know how to buy art. Lots of lovely pieces about.
Oh, there are even two lovely dogs to fuss!
My only concern: although manager Renee and owner Maureen are friendly and helpful, although nobody could help us find any food on new year's day! EVERYTHING is shut, even the petrol station is on a half day - we ended up at macdonalds several miles away. As this is a tourist location (you should've seen the queues at the petrol station!) and is obviously an annual problem, I wonder if they could provide a buffet lunch/dinner on new year's day?
