For those wishing to relax completely, Anne and Sean can cater for your dietary needs. A complimentary continental breakfast is already included in the room charges, but light lunches and evening meals are available on request. If booking the whole house the semi commercial kitchen is available for sole use. Although it is great to escape technology when you are away for a few days, we have catered for those who wish to stay 'connected'! The living spaces have flat screen TVs connected to Netflix and free to air as well as music systems for your enjoyment. Free wifi is available throughout the property. During the winter months there are wood fire heaters to keep you warm and cosy. On hot summer days there are ceiling fans as well as an evaporative cooling system. This area is a great base for outdoor activities such as bushwalking, mountain biking and exploring wineries! There are a variety of walking/mountain biking tracks to choose from or for those wishing to just chill - spas abound! Anne is a qualified beauty and massage therapist with a treatment room on site so come away and indulge yourselves! The 5 acres surrounding our property is a bird lover's paradise with only native birds inhabiting the grounds. We also have many other native visitors such as wallabies, echidnas, kangaroos, lizards and the occasional koala. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting outside, watching the birds reading a good book and sipping on a cool glass of wine - this is the life! More
