Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

Lovely spot
Really lovely property, close to the lake but also close to the redwoods and town. Very handy. Had everything we needed but would have been nice to have a TV for night time chill. Would recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Easy communication and arrangements. Location 5 min drive from Redwoods absolutely ideal for mountain biking etc. 2 min from boat ramp too. Great place - lots of fun. Nice house, looks like a little bit of renovation finishing to be done. If you have little children, check that stairs have a kiddie gate fitted.
