Both Sue and Steve are very warm, friendly and hospitable. Even though Sue was not around on the day of our arrival, she communicated beforehand to get a rough arrival time and had Steve waiting for us. Sue was also very accommodating and allowed us to check-in early before we got about with our touring activities. While giving us the privacy, Sue would meet up with us each morning to chat and to make sure that we are well settled.
The cottage is truly a home away from home that's beautifully decorated, spacious and speckless. It is equipped with all the necessary essentials of a home where one can just bring your bags in and stay. Things are well organised and neatly labelled for guest's convenience. The kitchen is well stocked with spices, sauces, cooking oil, cereals, pasta, canned food, tea/coffee/cocoa. The TV lounge is very relaxing after a long day out. It has stereo, TV, DVD player, lots of CDs and throw blankets to keep us warm on cold nights. The bathroom has lots additional towels and many other personal care stuff just in case you forget to bring yours. The bedroom is snuggly with warm soft lighting to get you ready for a good night's sleep.
The cottage is surrounded by a huge compound of native trees and bushes which gives it a quaint country feel; yet it's just 5 minutes drive away from a huge mall - Cockburn Gateway Shopping City. It is also conveniently located with easy access to Rockingham, Mandurah, Fremantle, Pinjarra, Swan Valley and Perth city; where driving takes between 25 to 45 minutes.
Waking up to the chirping of birds gives the cottage a tranquil feel. One of the highlight of our stay are the adorable dogs - Bella, Bailey and Scooby; Mia the cat and the 2 donkeys. The dogs are pure entertainment and they would come by for pats, hugs and play. With a torch light, you could also spot some bunnies in the compound and around the neighbourhood. If you love animals, this is a home not to be missed.
I would highly recommend this stunning cottage to anyone looking for a short or even long term stay.
