shopping malls, fancy stores, or cinemas for more than 120
kilometers. If you need those for your entertainment, this is not the
right place to go. BUT if you are looking for a beautiful spot to be
close to or to be at one with Mother Nature, where you can wind down from
every day stress and forget about your obligations at work, our Sunny
Waters Wilderness Cabins might be just what you've been looking for.
