Relaxing get away

Pros: great shower, very accommodating, tasty breakfast and wonderful tranquil surroundings.
Cons: no real clear walk way to the patio/door can be tricky in the dark (but we are on a vineyard!) chairs at dining table slightly warn.
Location: didn't get a chance to do much locally - but highly recommend 'the Honest Lawyer' for a meal and a drink. and 'Boat Shed Cafe' meal was Divine!!
Wonderful stay - very accommodating as we were rushing around helping out with a wedding. We even left some items behind that they found and shipped back to us! lovely setting, relaxing room. GREAT shower! and loved the breakfasts and we even had the dog join us on the porch for while we ate breakfast! very relaxing. shame we ran out of time to do the wine tasting - but will definitely be back in winter to try out the hot tub :)

A very special place

A stunning unit in an equally beautiful setting , with owners who couldn't be more helpful. Loved the pinot noir so will be ordering more and the platter for dinner. A very special place for a winter break.Must be incredible in summer!

Pros: The view! And a hot tub overlooking the vineyard. Amazing! Not to mention the continental breakfast.
Cons: Clutching at straws - the rather masculine decor which just didn't seem to fit the surroundings.
Location: Away from it all
Value: Great deal; Enjoyed a fantastic wine trail cycle ride arranged by the owners.

Thankyou for your postive review, unfortunately weeds had been sprayed a few days before your arrival and had not died at that point, they have since been removed and the grounds are in pristine condition.
