The 2 bedroom cabin was $400 a night. For what we experienced, that was extremely overpriced and we would not return.
The decor was extremely old and tired, the furniture old, dirty and uncomfortable. I could not bring myself to sit on the sofas outside, and the beds were desperately uncomfortable. There is rustic and characterful, and there is simply old and tired. This was the latter,and it is not priced accordingly.
The breakfast hamper included packets of juice, children's cereal and sliced supermarket bread. Not quite the "huge country gourmet hamper" advertised. The coffee in the cupboard appeared so old and the jar so dirty that we did not want to touch it.
Windows were broken as mentioned previously. The cooking utensils were dirty and in the dishwasher when when we arrived. The BBQ required a good clean before we were able to use it.
For $200 per couple you can stay in modern clean accommodation elsewhere that is just as spacious, and conveniently located. We would not return.
