My family of 6 stayed at Lagoon House for three nights and we wish it could have been longer. The house was spacious and very well presented. Joan was very easy to communicate with and accommodated our needs. The location of the house is breathtaking, nestled among trees with kangaroos and wallabies on our door step. We loved the seclusion of the house and we also liked the proximity to a number of KI's attractions. Thanks for a great stay.
