GUEST TESTIMONIALS ON THEIR STAY:
Warry Family - October 2017:
" I stayed in the property over the long weekend, it's a modern, beautiful and spacious house with everything that you need for an enjoyable stay. Check in and out was a breeze, with the keys being collected from a different location not far from the property. The house was very clean. Bedrooms are spacious, all with air conditioners and fans, bathrooms are luxurious, and kitchen is perfect, fully equipped with all that you need. The outdoor living area of the house was probably the highlight ....... Two undercover areas to relax in with neighbours only on one side, with a grassed and treed area at the back, was peaceful and enjoyable. Overall a great home, that would suit a large family or multiple couples, looking for a luxurious getaway."
Zughbi Family - November 2017:
" Beautiful home in a fabulous location. The gardens in the surrounding streets are amazing and so well kept. The backyard of this property was also very lovely with both dining and lounge outdoor spaces, both paved and with fans. The pool was very clean and half shaded by the afternoon. The interior was lovely and clean, beds were comfy and clean. We would recommend this house to stay in. In terms of location it was perfect. Although it's not on the beach it was only 6 min walk to the beach. Close enough for convenience but far enough away to be quiet. Palm Cove is very calm and sophisticated. Very relaxing holiday !!! "
Patterson-Kane Family - December 2017:
" While the photos are great, they don't do this house justice. It was fantastic! It felt luxuriously appointed and at the same time very family friendly - leather couches, tiles, low-maintenance garden, etc. The kitchen, master bedroom, ensuite and outdoor gazebo were particularly lovely spaces. There were many thoughtful details which we really appreciated, such as pool & beach toys, a games and toy cupboard and a step in the bathroom for small children, a stroller and many other items. An excellent stay."
