Thank you for a wonderful weekend. The old homestead is beautiful and we all had a great time. Excellent location with incredible views. The house is fantastic for large groups as plenty of space and bedrooms are good size.

Really enjoyed my stay and will definitely recommend.

From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a smile by the owners, and taken on a tour of the property. Zen and Jayne were available at all times if we needed assistance, but let us enjoy our time there in peace. The facilities and the property itself were of a very high standard. The location and views are absolutely stunning!! We stayed as a party of 20 adults, but there was adequate space for at least another 4 guests to stay comfortably. Overall, a fantastic stay and we would definitely recommend!!! more
