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.

Great place to stay but booking agency not friendly to deal with. Caretakers very friendly/helpful. We stayed in the river house which is old but well set out. BUT we had house mates of the rodent kind but my feedback in relation to them ignored. Takes 2 weeks to get bond back.

Had a terrific time in an absolutely stunning home. Views to die for, the grounds are immaculate and staff (caretaker) was extremely friendly. Would highly recommend if you want a great family/friend getaway and only just over an hour out of Adelaide.

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...

We spent the weekend in the "Morgan"...with views to die for. The house had all the amenities we needed and the outdoor kitchen with bbq snd stainless steel fridge, fire pit and ambience was perfect.

We weren't too sure what to really expect from the resort but what I can say is I will be back. With a group of 7 people aged between 17-21 it was definitely worth it. Having no service was honestly a bonus, being young it was nice having no one stuck on their phones. The care takers are the nicest...
