Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient, well-equipped property.for a family. We enjoyed the stay, providing adequately for our needs. It is suggested that a door to close off the single bed room would provide a quieter sleeping area and would reduce light spill-over from the hallway and use of the bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Louisa, thank you for having us. Cockatoo House was a home away from home with all the essentials necessary for a great stay - cosy fire and heating, washing machine, good size bathroom and very user friendly kitchen. It was clean and extremely quiet, with large light rooms and comfy furniture. The house is conveniently located to Canberra city, we easily joined the local Dickson Library for internet access and library books. A supermarket is a 5 minute walk from the house, taking in a beautiful gumtree park at the bottom of your road, which our four legged friends loved. We hope to come to Canberra and stay with you again. Regards Rob and Sally
