    We love staying at the Francess retreat it was just beautiful the pool and the outdoor area with fan

    The only complaint I have for this house was the oven was dirty and also when you had a shower in the second bathroom it was flooding so that What is very disappointing but overall it was a fantastic day

    Nice weekend in a nice Victoria country town

    My husband and I really liked the house, very clean and well set up. We had a dog and it was very secure. I was working on the Monday and Tuesday at the hospital so it was a perfect location. The town close by, river close by. We hadn't been to Echuca for years and it is a lovely town with lots to do.

    Great stay

    The house is spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen is amazing in both design and appointments. I think everything you want would be found in it. By far the best appointed kitchen l have come across. Weather was beautiful so a pity the pool wasn't heated! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the house and in Echuca.
