Week away for ONE...you need it and deserve it.. The Absolutely Perfect place!
So many people cater for the 'large crowds'... but, what if there is just one of you? Solo, single or just taking individual R&R, sometimes it's hard to find somewhere you feel safe and comfortable to just rest. That is exactly what jacarandas cottage in Bickley offers.
Now, please note: they absolutely cater to couples and families as well, but it's to the Solo traveler I want to address as I can only speak of my experience.
I actually stumbled onto Jacaranda cottage 3 years ago, and I am sooooooo happy I did. I was in desperate need of a break, but was too exhausted to bother with flying or looking for holiday plans abroad, so I thought I would look local.
The hills are a BEAUTIFUL location to enjoy food, wine, general nature beauty, hiking, sight seeing, or just sitting in front of a relaxing fire.
Jacarandas cottage, is Beautiful old world style but still with all the modern comforts (air-con, Wi-Fi, TV etc)
Susanne and her husband's attention to detail is beautiful, this being in the lovingly restored cottage itself, to simple things such as having an umbrella ready and waiting on my arrival.
It rained most of my week there, but you know what... It did not matter. I soaked in the beautiful freestanding bath tub, I drank wine, I watched movies, I sat in front of the fire, I went to Mundaring Weir, I checked out Kalamunda, I practiced taking photos (learner) and I sat on my verandah and watched the rain... I rested and relaxed!
It was perfect!
The cottage is near main house, but far enough away for privacy (has own entrance etc)... I was in my own space and world (surrounded by our beautiful hills/horses/greenery).... But... I felt safe and secure even though I was Solo....
I will be back... It is purely and simply my go to rest and recovery place and thoroughly recommend to one and all (by especially to the solo lady travelers out there)
Thank you Julie for choosing to stay at the cottage again and we love that it ticked all your boxes and you are now well relaxed. Really appreciate your review and so hope we have you stay again. All the best, Suzanne and Giles
Gorgeous cottage and perfect setting for a romantic getaway!
My partner and I stayed here for two nights and I wish we could have stayed longer!
Incredibly charming and perfectly renovated with beautiful little touches. I particularly enjoyed the fireplace, bathroom, and meeting the owners dogs and horses. Far away enough to enjoy the serenity but also close enough to the local Kalamunda shopping precinct and amazing restaurants and wineries. The hospitality was also amazing and we felt very welcomed.
If you’re tossing up between this property and others like I was, DEFINITELY choose Jacarandas!!
Couldn’t have enjoyed my 21st birthday get away any more!
Thankyou so much Suzanne!! :)
Thank you Courtney! I’m sorry I didn’t know it was your 21st. So pleased you enjoyed your stay and what a lovely couple you were to have stay. All the best.
Beautiful cottage and a great weekend escape. Can't wait to get back.
Stunning cottage with everything you could need. I got ready here before my wedding and there was plenty of space for our hair and makeup artists to work, and for the 5 of us to get ready. Lots of places for gorgeous photos as well. Highly recommend!
Thank you Jade. So pleased it worked well for you and your bridesmaids. Wishing you all the best in married life.
Lovely cottage beautifully renovated with everything you may need plus little extras which was charming. A wonderful location to explore the beauty of the Bickley Valley and Kalamunda .Just wish we had more time to enjoy
this special retreat. Thankyou Suzanne and Giles
Neat and tidy cottage in a picturesque, quiet location
We thoroughly enjoyed our four-night stay at the cottage. It has everything you could need and Suzanne is a great host. Will certainly be back in the future!
Thank you Daniel, we look forward to you returning with your son.
