We couldn't have asked for a better place and hosts for our 1st wedding anniversary. The views from our room were magnificent and we were made to feel right at home by our hosts Ian & Rob.

Beautiful property and rooms. Lovely hosts who cooked a yummy dinner and breakfast for us. Breakfasts are large so ask for small serving if not a big eater! Enjoyed the spas and the views from the balconies. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway.
