Such a lovely place to stay! We absolutely loved all of the character and comfort that the cottage had to offer. It is set in such a beautiful location for a quick escape from the city!
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! This cottage is adorable. My partner and I enjoyed a relaxing and romantic weekend away in this beautiful little place. The outdoor shower and view are 10/10. Even though it was winter when we visited, the shower being outside is still very warm. We will definitely be back.
It was unfortunate we only had two nights here, it is a cosy cottage in a beautiful setting. Margaret is a fantastic host who has put a lot of thought into this place. It is very eco friendly, with all the soaps, shampoos and even dishwashing liquid being quite eco themselves. The little heater was a little workhorse and kept the whole cottage very warm given the bush location on the rugged west coast. The outdoor shower was my highlight, nothing beats a hot steamy shower (it was really windy and rainy but didn't ruin the shower at all). Waking up to the birds and a view of nature was awesome. We would definitely return.
