had a wonderful 10 days staying here at Mary and Charlies Holiday Home. Fantastic property with more than enough room for the 10 of us. Everything we needed was here. The wonderful deck would have to have been the highlight of the property. Heaps of space to sit out in in the evenings and enough drinks, nibbles and dinner beside... More

This place was perfect. The owners Charlie and Mary were delightful. The pool was fabulous and the studio unit we stayed in was immaculate. I could also see it would be great for large family holiday if the whole place was booked out. I would definately recommend it to anyone

I loved the villa I stayed in, it was quiet, reasonably private, clean and close to the pool. The hosts Mary and Charlie arranged airport transfers, they were welcoming and I was able to use the equipment down at "Charlies" free of charge. They make the best fruit smoothies, and panini. I had a fabulous time and was really sad... More

Our three-generation family of 9 stayed here for a week in November to celebrate a Big Birthday. We hired the main house and one of the villas, and both were super spacious and clean. The huge covered deck with barbeque and a table big enough to feed the 5,000 was the hub for family meals and whiling away the evenings,... More

We hired both villas and the main house for our group of 11, which consisted of 4 adults and 7 children with ages ranging from 13 - 1 years old and still could have easily fit another two families. The property was spacious, clean and had everything we needed for our 16 night holiday. Having the swimming pool was a... More
