Beautiful home that’s spacious with quality fittings. There were electric blankets which I found to be a welcome touch since it was cold. Had a relaxing time staring into the fireplace and falling asleep on the couch.
Amazing experience in a wonderful property giving the perfect vibe for a long weekend. Great space for 10 people in a very good location. Definitely recommend the place.
We had great time staying here! Property is spacious and cozy for our group of 10. Within 10-15 minutes to most tourist spots in Warrnambool. We enjoyed the view to the river while having coffee sitting at the verandah. Also smooth and prompt communication with host. Couldn’t recommend enough!
It was perfect. We will come back again for sure. I have already recommended the place to a few more groups.
Property is cozy, spacious and very comfortable for a group. It is well equipped. The location is also very relaxing and calm. I would recommend to travellers who want privacy and a great amount of space. Communication and guidance from the host is excellent.
