Really lovely little place; great cost for location and so easy to get around. Welcomed on arrival and settled really well. The place really is private considering its in their back garden. Well kept and clean; would recommend anyone to come here to stop truly worth while. Thanks Crajig/Sam

Having just completed another stay with Samantha and Craig, this time 6 nights, we are very pleased to again reiterate the quality of this establishment, the excellent location, and the exceptional hosts. The amenities provide for comfort and convenience in a most accessible location. Nothing is a problem to the hosts as they make for a most pleasant stay. Perusal of my previous reviews should assist in allaying any doubt as to this being a really top property to stay at!

Just completed our fourth stay at Sam & Craig's. Hard to add to what we've said in three reviews from the previous stays! Premises are beautifully appointed, exactly as advertised, the location is great, the area is very quiet, and Sam and Craig are excellent hosts. This visit, freshen-up painting had been completed, a new sink and oven installed, a new external barbeque provided, and other improvements made, all clearly for the comfort of their visitors. This is a top place to stay!

The bungalow is everything you need and more. A perfect and quiet location, close to local malls and stations. Loved the parking spot for the guests of the bungalow, a perfect extra touch that I never expected!

We have just completed another most enjoyable stay at Craig & Samantha's cottage. The premises were again very clean and very well equipped - they leave nothing to chance! The hosts are very friendly and accommodating - again, the location is perfect for us. Anyone wanting high class lodgings in a quiet and peaceful setting in this area will be hard pressed to find better than this.
