- A great home to relax and unwind. Clean & really spacious. We loved making a lovely fire when the weather was miserable outside. Highly recommended as somewhere to chill & enjoy.

- We loved our stay at Stargate Retreat. Pictures don’t do justice to how beautiful the view is from the living room. Very clean and tidy space in a modern setting with everything you will need for a comfortable stay. Our hosts communicated with us frequently till check in and even accommodated a late check in. Do not miss an opportunity to sit in the yard and stargaze at night.
