    This really is a great place to live permanently if you are looking to settle down. The picture shows where Ray lives. He has been with us over 25 years! No that is not a typo. As Ray would say, "I've spent 20+ years living in paradise and I don't even have to cut the lawn."

  • These permanent resident sites will suit those who want a place to call home and to be part of a small community (max 10 sites) of caring individuals. Above all, you will have your own private site in what we like to think of as a wee slice of paradise.

    You have access to the river that bounds the property with safe swimming holes. There is extra storage space available for boats / cars if required.

    We wish to maintain a high standard for everyone on the site so will not accept caravans or motorhomes that are unsightly or in general poor condition.

    Smokers OK, pets negotiable. SMALL well behaved dogs (no yapping barkers) may be accepted.
