Bernard put our group on a perfect spot and it turned out to be a great experience for our friends that were camping for the first time. Even though Bernard organized a rod for us, sadly we dis not catch any fish.I understand that the place is very basic, the kids enjoyed running and walking along the dams, I would suggest that there be a play area for the kids. We would love to come back and hopefully there will be something to keep the kids busy.Thank you Bernard for everything and for allowing us to just be ourselves.

Everything could be improved there is not enough cuttlery 2 forks 2 had to eat whilst the other 3 had to wait to use the forks.The plates are cracked and broken.The bedding and curtains are so so dirty looks like it never gets washed.A butter knife is used to keep the one window closed.The glass sliding door's lock is broken cant even lock it.The wirring in the unit also looks terrible,most of the lights are not working.It gets advertised that its a fishing lodge there is no fish this was confirmed by the owner and other people that was there.This was very dissapointing and will never go there...

The cottage was quaint and comfortable. We loved the basic settings which allows for simplicity and distresses you. The dams are good and the bird life is awesome. The bed can be improved.

The owner is very hands on, he checked on us daily. Great venue, The place is great and will be returning in a few months.It would be great for them to add more abolition facilities and a pool. Maybe sell ice cubes on the property although driving out to town is not that bad.
