Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our needs Cockatoo House is an older property and was very cosy and perfect for our needs. We stayed for five nights with our two children and my parents. The beds were comfortable and there was more than enough living space for all six of us - with two living areas and two large dinner tables. The lounge suite was comfortable and had four recliners - perfect for putting our feet up after a day of exploring! The house was well heated with central heating and an additional gas heater in the lounge (we stayed in winter) and there were more than enough pillows and warm doonas and blankets. The kitchen was well equipped with good bench space, a full-sized fridge/freezer, microwave, stove, oven and more than enough plates, cups etc. The property is also very pet friendly. We have a medium breed dog and she loved the yard. The yard is securely fenced and has a large, covered, verandah so we could happily leave her while we explored Canberra. There is also a small park with a playground a few blocks down from the property. The house is only a 15 minute drive to the centre of Canberra and was therefore very close to all major attractions. The local Watson shops were very convenient and have a chemist, supermarket, take-away and several restaurants. They were only a quick walk (600m) away. We will definitely stay here again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did the job! House has excellent heating and is in a good position. Refrain from using linen service, exorbitant cost, terrible quality linen, no top sheets provided, had to make beds ourself and one sheet had not been cleaned sufficiently enough.....still had hairs from previous guest/s. Not impressed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Property! We really enjoyed our stay at Cockatoo House. The gorgeous wisteria pergola in the back yard was in flower and our two dogs loved the yard as much as we loved sitting on the back deck. Very quiet suburb with dog friendly cafe nearby. Clean and comfortable and centrally heated.
