Dear Adela, Brett, Wallace and Grommet, I always have so much fun swimming in the dam, walking on the crystal road and paddling in the Drift. Grommet is such a sweet dog. Thanks for the pies and the garlic. Can`t wait to see you next year. ps. This place must be part of heaven. Love Becs

Thank you very much for an absolutely amazing stay. From the start everything has been wonderful. You have made our stay as a family with our kids so comfortable and memorable. This place is majestic and so soul fulfilling. It has been a rejuvenating and energizing experience, and at the same time relaxing and tranquil. Thank you for all the treats and sharing your organic vegetables with us. You have really made us feel so at home and comfortable. You will definitely see us again.
