About Aukje Van Vark
We are a family of 5, but we are slowly loosing members to University. we make up for numbers in dogs and horses. We love travelling, making Art, improving on just about everything, and always have plans. We love to share our piece of paradise with people who are not as fortunate as us- not everyone can have their own bush :-)
Aukje Van Vark purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Aukje Van Vark chose Cockatoo
Having moved from a metropolis, we needed space and quiet. After travelling Australia, we have found this piece of paradise- which feels like a retreat. Living here is wonderful- in this nice community full of lovely locals, animals and abundance of nature.

Warmth of host family
The forced detachment from internet because of location
Beautiful Welcoming place to spend the weekend.
Great little place on a big property. Cosy and warm. Owners were very accomodating and helpful with local walks, bringing more fire wood but allowing privacy. My Dogs loved playing with the resident dogs and sleeping by the fire. The bed was comfy and while basic, everything needed was there for a great weekend away at short notice. It is close to workshops but there was minimal noise. Waking up to the sound of birds and rain on the roof was brilliant.
Cute, cosy and tucked away
Does what it says on the tin. Comfortable and affordable. Nothing fancy, just friendly owners, not intrusive but available if needed. Private setting with just about everything you need.
