Reviews

Stunning Property, exceptional hosts.  ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

My Family and extended family stayed in shack 5 for almost a week. On arrival the property is immaculately kept in all aspects. Donald and Nikki are wonderful people friendly helpful and very welcoming. The shack was very well kept and very clean. The beds feel like a 5 star hotel with all the white linen. As a new boat owner Donald was more than happy to help me launch and retrieve my boat with no issues. We will be visiting the resort again soon for sure. Amazing views morning noon and night. Thank you again Don and Nikki.

Large group getaway  ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Had a large group weekend getaway, fantastic location, facilities had something for everyone. Hosts Donald and Nikki were the friendliest people, and helped out with anything that was needed. Houses were all very clean and comfortable. Can't wait to go back.

Just what we needed - very peaceful  ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We stayed in the Executive House with views to die for. I ate my breakfast on the balcony every morning. The house was everything I expected and more. Loved having two separate lounge areas so the kids could watch their movies at night. Four bedrooms and two bathrooms was just what we needed going away with the mother and brother and my two children. The kids loved the basketball courts, playground, table tennis table and swimming pool (even if it was very cold as we had not had a lot of sun). Such a shame the snooker tables were out of use due to vandalism. My brother and son loved fishing from the pontoon. Sitting around the fire pit after a barbeque was heaven listening to the kookaburras. The grounds are immaculate and Nikki and her husband the caretakers go above and beyond to accommodate your needs. Food at the Walker Flat store was very good for a takeaway night. My only gripe is that there is no Optus reception but a quick drive to the lookout and I could make any phone calls needed. The kids suggested a trampoline or jumping pillow would be a great addition.
