What guests say about their stay with us

Eloise and Troy were the best hosts you could ask for. We had a blackout and within 20mins, they were able to get it fixed and the house was up running. The most gorgeous cabin to stay in with great facilities and not too far from the wineries either. Definitely recommending this to all my friends!
