WINTER AT MAISIE'S COTTAGE
Please note it is cold in Busselton in Winter. The cottage has reverse-cycle wall mounted air conditioning unit in the main open plan living/kitchen area and a gas fire. The two main large bedrooms each have an oil column heater in each room. There is no bath, just a standard walk-in shower.

... We absolutely loved our stay at Maisie’s Cottage. The situation is excellent - a short walk to the jetty and beach. Our kids loved the range of toys and books which were used more than the toys they brought with them there were in the cottage. My father wished he could take the front veranda with him; he loved reading there in the morning sun away from the grandchildren. We will be back
... Thank you for your perfect family accommodation for our recent visit to Busselton. The amenities and atmosphere of your property were just what we were looking for, and the location to the town sites was great.
... The house was perfect for us - close to the beach & shops and had everything we needed, and very 14-month-old friendly. We were particularly impressed with the welcoming feeling we got from being able to share toys, books, bqq and other things.
