ok...where do I start, when I read the reviews and looked at the photos I had a good vibe..., I was right. The moment we arrived we were made to feel sooooo welcome, especially after all of the travelling. Let me point out the we are a family with an 11 year old daughter. As everybody else has mentioned we were made to feel like part of the family. Emma, Richie,Seb and Joy all made our experience that little bit more special, and when we would go and visit other places....well we felt like were coming home. There were families, young people traveling solo, older couples, groups traveling...So if you wanted to be mellow and read and be alone, no problem...If you wanted to meet other people, great. Richie and Emma are full of advice and information, and they really cared. Also they do a tab system, like back in the day, which makes life a lot easier if you are all doing different things at different times and want to have a drink,eat,etc.....There is no doubt that we will be going back, and I am already mourning the fact that I am not there now. I have no doubt that if we had not gone to Shiralea our holiday would not have been so wonderful....oh and the friends we made....a thousand thankyous
