Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great overnight stay! We stayed here on the night of our wedding. Wish we had longer at the cottage, but our overnight stay was very pleasant and the cottage is so lovely! Perfect little quiet spot for those wanting a weekend getaway, close to beach and shops and in a very safe neighbourhood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful escape with our toddler We loved our long weekend stay at this beautiful little cottage with our toddler. The studio was comfortable and private and perfectly positioned to allow us to explore the northern beaches with ease. Michael was a lovely host providing us with tips and extra provisions for bub. We would love to come back soon and will definitely recommend our friends to stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I spent 3 nights with my man at this beautiful retreat, and loved it. Waking up each morning feeling totally blissful. This is a private retreat that feels remote but at the same time offering walking distance to everything good, including some of Sydney's most stunning beaches.It's clear to see the respect Michael has for his guests - greeting us warmly at arrival and then allowing us the freedom and privacy to truly enjoy our stay. No detail has been spared, everything was pristine, the sheets crisp and clean, the garden lush, the coffee fresh, a torch by the bedside, first aid kit to treat a clumsy cut, free wifi, milk in the fridge and even a friendly dog who looked after us. Michael even arranged to have some kookaburras wake us up in the morning. Though I must admit, as a European visitor, I had to google "birds that laugh like humans". You learn something new every day ;) Oh, and my man was truly spoilt ;) We can't wait to visit again :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you for a wonderful stay. We cannot praise you enough. You have thought of everything for a comfortable, pleasant and hospitable stay. Our time here was part work, part leisure and what you have on offer works for both. Although there is accommodation of all types out there, your extra touches and detail sets you apart. - Especially with the bonus of the pet friendly aspect that you offer. Yours is truly 'pet friendly'. Pearl our dog has had a wonderful time. You have made all 3 of us so welcome to have her here and the fact that she can swim at will has been an unforgettable experience. And whilst swimming at this time of year is a little less desirable for us 'humans' the warm spa is the perfect answer. Meticulous detail to cleanliness, lighting, bathroom comforts like the heated towel rack and a bbq out front made us only wish that our stay was longer. - WE'LL BE BACK! Anne, Dave & Pearl

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We had a delightful stay. The studio was immaculate, well-equipped and private and with beautiful views of the garden. The owners were immensely helpful in every way. Nothing was a trouble to them.
