Review 1-10 of 10

12 Feb 2013



We spent one week here and cannot fault the house. The property is exactly as it looks on the photos, very clean, very spacious and of a very high standard and I definitely recommend it to anyone. It sleeps eight in total and could easily accomodate that number of people. We were only two and it was nice to have a choice of bedroom etc. The location is ideal as the house sits right on the main road (however, not many cars go past) so is easyily accessible and also has uninterrupted views of the water and mountains.

"Perfect Family Getaway"

Spent September weekend in Balmacara and had a wonderful stay. This house is simply stunning inside and out. The views from the house are outstanding and can be seen from every room in the house. All the family had a wonderful time, slept really well, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would not hesitate to return and actually cannot wait until I can.
