Thanks Melissa .. we really enjoy hosting guests like you that appreciate the house and it's location :) .. cool to hear you bumped into some other past happy guests at the touch tournament too.. One small correction - the 16m pool is not heated but it is a dark blue colour so it absorbs the sun and naturally warms up during the day .. if you put the cover on at night it retains the heat very well. looking forward to hosting you again Cheers Tony

Thanks Issac - we certainly have many happy memories there too .. it has been a great place for us to bring up our family over the past 17 years and we really do miss living there now (we had to move into the city for the children's schools). we are glad to share it with others like you now that can enjoy and appreciate it :) Best regards Tony
