5/5 Excellent

Perfect family getaway
This is an amazing Lockwood 3 bedroom home in a great location which was perfect for our wee family. Books and toys for the kids, together a safe fenced rear yard and balcony. Check in process was easy and the accomodation was exactly as described. Extremely clean and great water pressure too. A highlight was hearing the bird life especially the Kereru.
