Located separately to the house and set back deep in the rear yard you can come and go from the side access without being noticed. Its very private and so far away from the house you will feel in your own private oasis. Modern facilities with clean and crisp presentation, we will go out of our way to ensure you feel at home. Whether you like a double loft bed or a queen mattress you will always be comfortable at night and during the day you may care for a swim in the tiled salt water tiled pool.
An outdoors BBQ is available for you to use and even a pizza oven if you need it - just ask!
You may enjoy unrestricted access to the entire rear of the property - the soccer nets, the pool, the sauna and the gym (indoors).
As you come and go - please shut the gates as we have two very friendly spoodle and a lagotto (like a poodle) who occasionally like to say g'day. If you are allergic to dogs just let us know and you won't see them during your stay as they are predominantly indoor pets.
You can come and go as you please - you wont be noticed as the house is separate to the other residence on the property. Parking is directly out the front under the Jacaranda Tree on Cross Road.
