Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most enjoyable stay. Four of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ballantrae Cottage over Australia Day and the weekend. We were surprised by the attention to detail and just how lovely the cottage is. One comment was that it was like being in a famous historic house, and being allowed behind the ropes! There was a full pantry of staples, including a lovely herb, spice, and sauces selection. Beautiful crockery and flatware, plenty of pots and pans. Books, magazines, dvd's and games. And even a drawer full of tea towels! Bathroom amenities were plentiful, and everything was spotless. We appreciated the lovely vases of fresh flowers, wine, and chocolates, including some by the beds. There was even a decanter of port with dear little glasses in the living room. We sat outside in the beautiful garden as much as we could, and found it very relaxing. Ballantrae Cottage is a hop, skip and a jump to the main street, and pub, and also the shopping centre for bigger supermarkets. We could walk everywhere, it was marvelous. All in all, would love to return, and are grateful that Gabi and Neil could accommodate us at such short notice, Kindest regards, Tricia and Sharon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little gem in Goolwa A delightful week was spent in the historic Ballantrae Cottage with our two energetic young grandchildren. The cottage is ideally set up for four people with two comfortable single beds in one room and a double bed in the main bedroom. Nothing has been forgotten in this very well equipped and good sized cottage. We appreciated the enclosed and secure back alfresco area for the children to play in and to have meals outside surrounded by an attractive garden. A secure garage and store shed was also ideal for the car and bikes storage. The cottage is within easy walking distance to all facilities in Goolwa including the main street, Cockle Train, Nature Play Area and port and a short travel distance to other towns in the region. Highly recommended.
