We stayed here with a large of adults and children and the space accommodated us well. The house is very large and the rooms are spaced out well. The balcony is large and is nice for outdoor space over looking bush gardens. It is worth noting that the bedrooms are downstairs, so you can hear footsteps etc. of others who are upstairs in the kitchen/living/dining areas. We have several issues at check in, which we were able to sort out with Stan. The house could have been better maintained and cleaner, but otherwise was a nice space. The area is very quiet. You can walk down to the lake and there are nice walks around. Caves Beach and Swansea are nearby.

Nice spacious house with excellent communication from Stan and easy approach to check in! We stayed in early Sept and we found cleanliness was an issue for us. And the pool advertised is not a direct pool - it's a communal pool with a 10min walk.

We had an amazing stay. It was much bigger than expected which was perfect for our large group. The area was beautiful, and backing onto the forest before the lake made for some great scenery. A nice open settings with large bifold doors opening onto the balcony making the space even larger. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay :)

Stan's house is massive, has a great flow and is really well appointed. We had 3 young families staying and the kids had heaps of space inside and out, to play freely. We walked to the cafe on the lake and enjoyed good coffee and we were only 10 minutes to Cave's Beach where we spent time rock pooling with the kids. Stan checked in on us prior to arrival and during our stay, which was a very nice touch. Checking in and out was simple. If you love bush and space, this is the place for you. We will be back with a bigger group of friends next time!! Benny
