It was amazing!
We stayed in this beautiful home with two other couples. It was amazing. Upon arrival they have local bread, jams and chocolates for you. The rooms are big and spacious, the 2 fireplaces are easy to use, kitchen is a chefs dream and there is a hot tub to rescue you after a day in Berry. Great location. Very clean . Highly recommend for a weekend getaway.
Classy beautiful property
Lovely property. Such a pleasure to stay here. The beds were so comfortable. My husband and I and our border collie stayed for 7 nights in October. So close to the shops I was there every day and my husband relaxed with Foxtel. Close to the beaches as well. Everything you need plus the added bonus of sourdough bread, jam, eggs and milk. Thanks and we will be back.
Amazing place... so relaxing and comfortable
Everything we wanted and more...didn't want to leave
Beautiful home in Berry
A beautiful stay in Berry in a historic home which catered to all our needs. Perfect location close to all the shops and restaurants, even a coffee shop and the famous donut van across the road. Lovely gardens, BBQ area and spa complimented the home.
We absolutely loved our stay, Thanks for sharing your amazing house with us.
