Below are the various accommodation options.   There are five rooms in the main house plus two self contained cabins.

(1 room sold, one room left)

We have two fully self contained cabins located on the property, walking distance to the main house.  These cabins have a double bed and a queen bed, bathroom, kitchenette and verandah. Usually sleeps two people, however if you have a third friend and happy to share a double bed you can triple share the cabins.  You can drive to your cabin and park the car out front, making it easy to unpack.

If you are interested in sharing a room with your friend/partner, please select Twin share so that you are both booked in at the same time so that we don’t allocate someone else to share with you.

If you are coming solo, we’ll pair you up to share with someone.  


We offer payment plans, so simply click on the room you’d like to book and select Payment Plan. We’ll then be in touch to confirm your direct debits and dates.  Paying up front will give you a discount – click on below room options to compare pricing for up front and payment plans.
