Overview

About the property

Central one-bedroom property with large open plan living space (1-6 guests)

This unique house is a pretty brick-built pavilion in an Arts and Crafts style. The main room is a multipurpose open-plan living/dining/kitchen space with dark wood wall panelling, triple bay window and standard window to the front, large cupola giving overhead light, vaulted ceiling, and polished wood flooring. There's a washing machine and dishwasher, broadband, Sonos music streaming system, and TV.

The sitting area has two sofabeds (one a three-seater, the other a two-seater), which convert into double beds, with sprung mattresses. The bedroom has a standard-size double bed, is carpeted and has a window and door to the garden. There is an en-suite shower room; the shower room is accessible only from the bedroom, not from the main living space. There is a wood-burning stove. This property is not suitable for children under 2-years-old but older children are welcome. Well-behaved dogs are welcome on request: please let us know in advance if you plan to bring a dog.

The Pavilion is accessed via a tiled entrance vestibule from the rear garden of the owners' adjacent house. Guests have use of the garden, including a Weber barbeque and garden furniture. (The garden is used by the owners' dogs, both of whom are very sweet and well behaved, and can be shut in if guests prefer not to associate with them.)

Absolutely magical place!

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage on Minto is the very best VRBO we have ever stayed in. Not only is the property enchanting, both Sarah and Lex were amazingly helpful and charming. They anticipated every need and desire we might have. We cannot wait to go back!

Wow

  • 5 of 5

The owners are friendly and have created a fantastic place to stay, along with little extras around the place such as wine and milk in the fridge, bagels and butter, a bowl of fruit etc etc.

It's an easy walk from Waverley station or catch one of the many buses up and down the road, they're no more than 30 seconds apart. We didn't bother, we walked, past many places to eat. The accommodation is something you need to see for yourself, a Victorian summer house originally maybe? Access is via the electric garage door straight through to where you stay, in the garden. It's also equipped with Sonos music system, big tv and dvd player. We could waffle on and on about how much we loved staying there. We can't imagine how you could find somewhere nicer.

Each morning, rather than use the cooking facilities, we'd wander down to the Royal Mile for breakfast but there is a map provided with other facilities in the area.

Have a good stay.

Perfect for Us

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Pavilion. We were helping our son move into Newington Rd so this was a perfect location. The Pavilion was comfortable, warm, cosy & beautifully decorated. The instructions left by the owners were very detailed & covered everything we needed to know - which is not always the case. The only thing missing was a bath, but obviously space did not lend itself to this. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay & will definitely be back!

Very nice and unique accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late and received a very warm welcome. The flat is wonderful, very well equipped, the landlords so helpful and friendly. You can walk downtown, also very close accessability of bus.

Thank you for learning to love twistball and sorry for the damage of your lawn by excessive twistballing.

Unique & Comfortable Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent approximately one and a half weeks at this location and could not have been more happy with it. The owners were just lovely, and provided all of the information, as well as amenities we could have wanted. Property is very roomy and very comfortable, and all items such as dishes, linens, etc., were top quality. Plenty of heat and hot water. The place was very clean as well. Our stay was quiet and very relaxing which was the purpose, but it was very easy to get out and about when desired. Our stay could not have been better. We hope to be back.
