From sending the initial email to Mark and Joanne to book an escape for me and my partner you could tell this place was special. They sent me every detail possible I could require with regards massages in the cottage, dinner menu's for local restaurants and even food hampers available to the cottage door.
As soon as we arrived we were welcomed with a breakfast hamper which was more than ample for the entire length of our stay, free parking only 30seconds from the cottage door and a selection (huge library) of free DVDs to help ourselves to.
Upon arriving at the cottage it was immaculate with a hammock on the deck, our own robes and slippers and an amazing spa bath and double shower.... And it still keeps getting better, every morning fresh coissants are placed on the balcony for you to enjoy, they're delicious!
You're also greeted by Mark and Joannes two lovely dogs, and as dog lovers they were more than welcome to share my partner and I's balcony during meal times, which they obviously loved :). However, Mark and Joanne have thought of everything and they obviously know that not everyone is a dog lover so there are gates provided as you enter your balcony/cottage to restrict access if required.
Overall this is an amazing place that I would recommend to anyone, along with the Temple massage in the cottage and also a visit to the Spirit House in Yandina if you like Thai food. Thanks Mark and Joanne, we'll definitely be back!
