Great dog friendly house, perfectly located on Warragul township.
Great to have a backyard for the dogs and pet friendly feel inside the house. Really nice sized house, good heating (a must in the cold and very rainy spring weather). Easy walk to the main part of town. Good dog parks nearby (Brooke’s Park). Very convenient and comfortable.
We found Cora’s cottage wanting in many regards. While the owner may pride herself in being environmentally friendly, that is no excuse for not presenting a property in a clean condition. The dishwasher had mould on the top opening, the outdoor furniture covered in webs and bird droppings and the BBQ lid covered in grease. I suggest the owner revise who is actually doing the cleaning and give them a serve. The furniture while it could be described as trendy and eclectic, I would describe as junk shop.
The house was clean, very cozy and location was very near town. Able to walk to the town area in 5-8 minutes.
Wonderful Home Stay
This is the second time we have used Cora's Cottage for our stay in Warragul. It is great: close to the main streets for shopping and supermarkets, etc; it's cosy, tidy and large enough to spread around inside. Great set-up for our four day stay.
problems with maintenance
A spacious place and very eco-friendly but some people management problems - there was no linen despite there being a linen charge of $15 extra, so I had to improvise, and I was asked AFTER BOOKING to put up with building work on the side of the house, which turned out to be very noisy all day, and the builders lunched merrily on my back porch.
A joy to visit!
We felt totally relaxed and comfortable at Cora's Cottage. Everything we needed was there. It was clean & tidy, and just a short stroll to the city centre. Driving around was so beautiful, with the rolling hills. We will be back to stay again!
