Loved the place, especially the wild life, we had a villa with a spa bath on the deck. Rooms were lovely, upon arrival the gas fire was on, as it was a cold rainy day was most welcomed. We had 2 bedrooms & both had matching ensuites.

It is pleasing to hear you enjoyed your time with us. During the cooler months we always try to turn the heaters on prior to our guests arriving to ensure they are greeted with a warm, welcoming room. Thanks for sharing your feedback, we look forward to welcoming you back to O'Reilly's again in the future :) More

Thank you for sharing your great review and all your beautiful photos. If you choose to revisit during the school holidays and your children are between 5-12, you can enroll them into the educational Eco Rangers program, allowing a bit of time for the parents to relax. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future. More
