Gary and Merril were such beautiful hosts. Breakfast was amazing each morning and both nights Gary took us out to the telescope to show us the planet's and stars. It was a lovely relaxing visit. We will absolutely be back again.

Great place to stay - the kids loved the space, the night sky experience and we loved the wonderful approach to children that Gary and Merrill have. The breakfast was also a highlight! Highly recommended and we would love to return.

Truly unique experience and delightful hosts. Scrumptious breakfast, probably never to be repeated.

This place is a MUST to stay at. The location is excellent and the facilities wonderful. The personalised guide to the stars gave me much more than anticipated. If you don't book in at some time in your life, you are depriving yourself of an unparallelled experience.
