Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Family Holiday Cottage Charming cottage in quiet street,perfect for our 1 & 2.5yr olds to roam the fenced in yard while we kicked back with the BBQ cooking in the evenings watching all the beautiful birds.Very simple, low key cottage but full of charm and homely comforts.Take extra mozzie coils and spray (some is also kindly provided.) Great base for morning surfs at Gerroa and afternoon treats in Berry.Good walk to beach and inlet from the Cottage.Local butcher does award winning amazing sausages but only open until 1pm Saturdays.Bottle shop and bakery close by but need to stock up on groceries up in Gerringong. Can't wait to come back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The perfect beach house for families! We stayed at Capella over Christmas and the property with its beautiful gardens provided us and our one year old daughter with a much needed and relaxing break. While the house itself is quite basic, the layout and secure garden made it perfect for travelling away from home with a little one. We were able to allow our one year old to walk around freely without having to watch or worry about her every move. The location was great for our daily walks to the nearby beaches. The new couch is perfect for use as a day bed, where my husband and I spent many lazy afternoons watching the birds outside in the garden. The local pub serves great food and there are plenty of day trips to surrounding townships should you want to explore the area. We would definitely recommend this holiday home to others. Thank you Jen!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great location and everything we needed. The cottage is in a great location near the river and dog beach. Also a block away from both the pub and the club. Couldn't really get a better spot in Shoalhaven Heads. It had everything we needed for our weekend away with our baby and dogs. The yard is fenced and fine for small dogs. We enjoyed our weekend at Capella and I think it's good value for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dirty and uncomfortable - paid for 5, left after 3 As experienced Stayz users, we had high homes for this little dog friendly cottage in Shoalhaven - before we booked, we checked with the owner that the yard was secure for dogs so our 2 beagles could safely run around. Unfortunately the dogs could easily jump the fence - something that has never happened in a Stayz rental before so spent 3 days tied up. There was no dining table to sit and eat meals inside - this meant that every meal was on the front verandah in full view of the neighborhood at a very rickety outdoor table. When we arrived, the house had an overpowering smell of room deodorisers. There was thick dust behind the blanket box in the bedroom and greasy dust down the side of the stove. There is no range hood so the kitchen walls are less than pristine. The carpet in the lounge room also had dirty marks which didn't come off when we vacuumed them. The owner subsequently kept our bond and blamed us for the dirty carpet. In spite of giving 2 additional days notice to allow for cleaning as we left early, the owner said she didn't have time to have the carpet cleaned and would have to compensate the incoming guests???? She said it was the first time she had kept the bond but there is a notice at the house telling guests that she has previously kept bond for dogs coming in the house and soiling - ours didn't. My sister and her kids called in for lunch on the second day of our stay - this is apparently considered to be "entertaining additional guests in breach of the Terms and Conditions" and was another reason given for keeping our bond. But the reason that we left after 3 nights instead of staying the 5 nights we had paid for was that the bed was uncomfortable, the sheets too small for the bed and there were no comfortable chairs to sit on - only a worn out fold down couch. We have used many Stayz properties and have always enjoyed our stay and always had our bond returned - we own a high end rental property ourselves so treat other properties as we would our own. Needless to say, Capella cottage was a very disappointing experience - the owner is welcome to keep our bond. We voted with our feet and left early.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cosy and welcoming! This cottage is very cosy and homely and perfect for a long or short getaway. We visited with my 9 month old baby and it was well set up to cater for children. I would definitely stay here again!
