Bird Watcher's Paradise

"Hi Jan, The Lazy Bowen Hideaway was fantastic!
A great comfortable place to stay with wonderful views." "Mum and dad had a great time and dad did see lots of birds that he hasn't seen before. He was in his element. His binoculars were glued to his face.""The hideaway was lovely with lots of interesting things to look at in every nook and cranny. We got there at 10:30am and didn't leave the hideaway till the next day because it was just so perfect. We were very lucky with the weather as is was very hot the day we arrived so we spent all day on the outside deck overlooking the bay. In the evening we relaxed in the living room, however, it did take us a while to decide what seat to sit on...hahahha. " "It was a great place to stay, Jan. Myself and Kevin would love to stay there again. Mum and dad wanted to stay forever!!!!!"
