Over Night Stay

Lovely property in rural Gladstone, unfortunately we were only there one night so didn't get to wander around the beautiful garden. We were well looked after by Tracey and would recommend to anyone wanting to escape a town environment.

thanks Birgit - and hope to see you both back some time - hopefully when the sun is out and the skies are clear at night. Not so pleasant having a spa in the rain - but when the skies are clear the stars are bright, soaking in hot, bubbly water gazing at the huge night sky is pretty amazing!
