4 well-appointed two bedroom cottages  nestled in a bush setting of majestic gums and native trees. The cottages are in close proximity to the recreation areas allowing families and children easy access to the various activities the property has to offer.


3 fully self contained 1 bedroom Chalets, custom designed as Romantic Retreats for 'couples only' are situated on a higher level of the property, far enough away from the Family Cottages and recreation areas to ensure that guests who wish to relax away from a family orientated atmosphere can experience the tranquility they require.
