The Coach House was divine! We had an amazing Christmas in July weekend in such stunning surroundings. Beautifully decorated and love the original features from its former life. Open fire place heated up the place quickly, beautiful sundeck and well equipped kitchen. We would happily return, thank you Janet.

The Coach House was just amazing. It was perfect for a weekend away for a wedding. The house was beautifully furnished and Janet was so welcoming and warm, we would recommend her place to anyone wanting a Southern Highlands getaway whether you are just a couple or with a group.
