    Great spot for a holiday.

    What a great little spot to stay. Just out of Cowes and so peaceful. We could sit on the balcony and watch the wallabies next door in the evening. Only six cottages, all with covered space for your car, and lots of room inside. We stayed in a 2 bedroom and it was great. Everything we needed for the stay was included, we would definitely stay here again. Oh, and lovely hosts too.

    really enjoyed our stay! Rooms are nice. Pool is clean. We saw so many different birds on site. Ponies and kangaroo are seen on the farm nearby. Kids love this place so much!

    A lovely place to stay

    This is a lovely site. Ignore the word ‘resort’ if that conjures up large numbers of people and cabins. There are only 6 cabins in a well maintained landscaped park. It’s handy for all attractions on the island

    Very clean and generous sized apartment. Has everything you need inside. Unfortunately aircon was smelly so we couldn’t use it. A couple of more extra blanket would be helpful in the small bedroom as it gets cold at night even in January

    The property is in a good location on the island and we enjoyed seeing the kangaroos in the open field as well as the koalas in the reserve nearby. It is a simple cabin/cottage which was cold for us because there is no heating and the weather was cool. I repeat my complaint about the instant coffee offered in the majority of rentals in Australia! What a shock not to have a simple coffee machine available. I hope that changes because instant coffee is dreadful. There is a lovely restaurant on the property which added a very nice touch for a one night stay. I wish them success.

    Very comfortable and well equipped. 10-15 minutes or reasonably close by car to experiences and events. A car is needed to access restaurants and shopping

    This resort blew me away with an amazing spacious cottage, with everything I could have wished for. The staff were so accommodating and helpful and the beds were so comfortable. I will be telling everyone about my experience and will be staying here again!
