Our beloved Lavender Cottage in a nutshell:

- it is absolutely charming, cosy and perfect for a relaxing getaway - with or without kids or furry friend in tow

- it sleeps up to 6 people in 2 bedrooms: the larger of the two features a double bed and a chair which folds into a comfortable single bed, if required; the second has a double bed with a single bunk above

- comfortable open-plan living area with a oh-so-cosy wood heater for chilly nights think hot chocolate, fluffy warm blanket and great book and reverse cycle air-conditioning for gorgeous but hot summer days

- beautiful polished Jarrah floors

- large windows allowing you to enjoy the tranquil, lush native garden from the comfort of your bed as well as the two cosy sofas watch the birds, look at flowers, day dream...

- there is no room for boredom: a cupboard full of games, a ridiculous amount of DVDs, CDs, audio books and books and magazines - kids and adults - will ensure plenty of entertainment; we also have Lego, dolls house stuff, a wooden train set, building blocks that would make Rudolf Steiner jealous and, and and

- BBQer's delight: we have a large deck complete with hooded BBQ and a teak outdoor setting the table of which recently received a beautiful lime green new coat

- AND kids beware :- nestled in the garden under its own veranda and with its own deck, is a restored pop-up caravan – the perfect place for the kids to hang out or the parents to hide; it also has a beautiful Jarrah floor and two beds as well as another sleeping area; attached to the caravan is a gigantic dolls house; there is also an enormous trampoline in our garden.

- said large, beautiful fully fenced garden backs onto the picturesque Cape Liptrap Coastal Reserve: leave the back gate and you will be on your way through the stunning coastal bush to Number One patrolled beach a 15 minute adventure, though, that might not be suitable for young children or people lacking fitness.

- equipped with a washing machine, microwave, flat screen TV and CD/DVD player

- and while off the beaten track, is within easy distance to Venus Bay’s shops and restaurants and the five beaches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect family getaway! Lavender Cottage was the perfect antidote for the Winter doldrums! It's cosy interiors were bright and well stocked with everything a family could possibly want for a weekend getaway. The toy and book collection was so amazing that my 6 y/o didn't touch her iPad all weekend, in fact she learnt how to ride a bike in the backyard instead! The walk from the back gate, through the dunes, to the beach was just magical and felt like a treasure hunt looking for the next shell markers. Adults were also well catered for with a great selection of quality books, magazines, movies, music and a selection of teas to rival T2. The hosts were prompt in their communication and provided clear, and easy to follow, instructions for everything (including how to make fresh waffles)! We have holidayed at Venus Bay for over a decade and Lavender Cottage is by far the best family accommodation we have experienced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Country Cottage I took my mother to Lavender Cottage for her 86 Birthday. The cottage was very clean, well stocked with cooking equipment, comfortable beds and furniture. The weather was a bit damp but we were very cosy inside the cottage. Lovely setting in a native garden with plenty of birdlife to watch. It was idea for my mother as there are no steps and the block is quite flat. The owner, Nadja was a delight to deal with. Would highly recommend the cottage and will return in 2017.
