This little piece of paradise was serenity itself, perched in the reeds near the mouth of the Murray with many little and big feathered friends coming to visit. Very scenic -especially around sunrise and sunset. Quiet and cosy. Loved it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time on this oh so cute and beautifully presented re-purposed old P.S. Being entertained by a family of resident swallows while drinking wine on the deck at sunset capped off a delightful stay. Thank you
