100% personable. 100% hospitable. For the price I paid I got everything I wanted. Tim is well experienced and an all round great guy. Feel very privileged to have stumbled across, what was to my surprise, a new business for Tim and his family. I have no doubt it will continue to please others as much as it pleased me. Felt safe the entire time and in capable hands. The views and the experience was fantastic as well as the hospitality I received on arrival. 5 stars!

Tim is great, full of local knowledge and keen to help in any way possible. would highly recommend to anyone.
