Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't wait to visit again :) Just a little note to thank you Sally for allowing us to stay in your darling little cottage. We had such a lovely time, and really appreciated how well set-up the cottage is for short stays. Your advice about local attractions was excellent, and we loved how cosy the cottage was on a particularly chilly March weekend. The heating in the lounge/living rooms was just perfect. I must make special mention of the beds - both me and my travel buddy commented on how well we slept - not always the case in holiday rentals! Our little city dog, Saffy, was beside herself with the wonderful large property to explore, and we really appreciated the under-cover outside area where we could leave her comfortably while we explored some of the near-by National Parks. All in all, our stay was relaxed and "easy". Thanks again, Sally

Everything you need is at this relaxing property and we were very sad to leave. The walk to the beach is fantastic . the spacious surrounds ensure a relaxing holiday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! Perfect setting, even managed to keep the teenagers happy with lots of room for cricket! Walking to the beach across the water in gumboots was all part of the experience. Will definitely visit again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from private and relaxing Loved the old world charm of the home. The garden offered peace and relaxation the a variety of birds visiting the birdbaths scattered around made sitting on the verandah entertaining. The kids enjoyed the extended land to ride thier bikes making cubbies and chasing rabbits, also starting a collection of bird feathers. The care given to us by the ower was very considerate Thanking you sally
