Description

Ideal if you are working away from home, holidaying for any length of time or an overnight stay on the way through to your destination.

This cottage accommodation is unique in Broken Hill - it has an in-ground pool. If you don't always enjoy a dip, you can relax inside. It's welcoming, light, airy and comfortable. It's the perfect place to relax after walking in the dust and heat around the local attractions that include Pro-Hart Gallery 2 streets away, The Sculptures and Silverton. Put your feet up and watch an assortment of DVDs.

The cottage was built in the 1930s - a 'Tinny' made from timber and corrugated iron. The floors are timber and the kitchen bluestone tiles. The cottage is self contained has 2 main bedrooms a third single room is also available. The main bedroom with mirrored built in robes has a queen size bed, the other bedroom has a double bed. Each bedroom is comfortably appointed with superior blankets, doonas and fresh linen. It's on a main road, however the trucks en-route from Adelaide to Sydney do not drive past the cottage - their route is a block away. Local traffic is not busy.

The Pool House has a fully appointed kitchen including an electric stove and oven, George Foreman grill, sandwich maker, deep electric fry pan, round electric skillet, sauce pans, nutri bullet blender, baking trays and small and large utensils.

The open living and dining areas are freshly painted and tastefully decorated.

The laundry has ironing facilities and a washing machine.

The iron and timber bathroom has a roll top, claw foot bath with overhead shower and separate toilet. Plush towels are available. The toilet is also accessible from the outside pool area.

You will be comfortable with evaporative air conditioning, a wood combustion heater you can buy wood locally, and a secure yard with off street parking.

Adjacent to the secure pool is a pergola area with large Outback plate and grill gas BBQ with a 9kg gas bottle. The gas is free but you must clean the BBQ after use.

There is a table and chairs for your outside dining or a grassed area for your relaxation.

Oh and pets can stay too - enquire with owner. An additional $10 charge per night will apply for short term stays. No furry friends are allowed on the furniture or beds.

Note: All efforts are made to ensure the pool is available for swimming at all times. April - October pool is maintained once weekly and during November - March the pool is cleaned twice weekly for regular swimming. If leaves bother you, scoop with the equipment. The pool equipment is in top conditions however unforeseen problems can occur rendering the pool unavailable. All efforts will be made to rectify this - no refunds apply to pool unavailability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value, has everything. Somethings are still a work in progress but otherwise good value. Although the pool in October was a bit chilly for us, our daughter had many hours of pleasure in it. Easy to deal with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pet friendly Comfortable Beds, excellent Shower (plenty of hot water). Kitchen cupboards could do with some maintenance. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice cottage in a good location! Was in Broken Hill for just a couple of days with my 3 small dogs. The cottage was clean, comfortable and had everything I needed. While it is on one of the main streets, I found it nice and quiet and managed two very good nights' sleep. The secure backyard was great for the dogs to run around in. Would definitely stay again given the opportunity.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs love and attention. We stayed at The Pool House for 3 nights. Be warned - BYO milk, soap, tissues, toilet paper and slippers (floors are extremely cold on winter mornings!) Also take your own linen if you and your partner sleep in separate beds. We found the house to be very cold despite having the two portable heaters running (the third din't work otherwise we would have had that going also). You can buy wood nearby to use the wood heater but you'll also need kindling from somewhere to get the fire going, we didn't use it and it was of course too cold for the pool. The blind in the main bedroom doesn't fit the window (about 2 inches short on each side) and as the house is located on a major highway, you may feel more comfortable getting changed in the hallway at night. Most of the furnishings looked like they came from the local op shop and all the amenities are extremely basic but they were functional (except for the 3rd heater). Watch the front door when you are closing it as the handle is very small and I jammed my knuckles in it a couple of times! On the plus side, it was clean and the queen bed was very comfortable (no electric blankets though). This accommodation is definitely set up for the warmer weather and not really suited to winter. Such a shame as it could be a lovely house if it was given a bit care and thoughtfulness.
