Jenny & Dale Pople, Launceston – January 2019
Certainly we would like to thank you very much for everything - whatever we needed was there! And this, after many years of self-catering (in the UK, Continental European countries, the USA and New Zealand as well as Australia) is by no means usually the case. Also everything was very comfortable - we enjoyed our stay a good deal. We liked King Island a lot too and were just so amazingly lucky with the weather...
