Lovely house in great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Piet's Cottage. It is a lovely colonial style cottage that is close to the beach. The beds are comfortable and the house is well organised with lots to entertain adults and children including fuse ball game - a highlight! Everything you need in the kitchen to cook at home but also close to restaurants. The owners kindly left us some supplies to help us settle in, which was a nice welcome.

Relaxing holiday in lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a 5 night stay at Piet's cottage, enjoying the close proximity of the beach and the local shops and cafes. The cottage itself is very charming and comfortable, with lots of artwork to admire. We were there in winter and were kept warm by the reverse cycle air conditioner. Huge range of DVDs on offer. All in all, a very relaxing and easy holiday for us. Thank you so much.

Owner's Response: Thank you Gert for writing a review under the title of "Excellent property". We try our best to cater for our guests' needs and attempt to 'put ourselves in your shoes' We realised that it is important to have an extra gas cylinder, for such a situation. We make small improvements where we can. Our returning guests will notice the new dual shower head and the fantastic new toilet. We will be replacing the couches in the TV room soon! All the best with your future holidays. Kind Regards Diane

Owner's Response: Thanks Wenny, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I suspect Phillip Island is a massive contrast to Singapore! Thank you for your lovely review and also for leaving Piet's so clean and tidy. All the best with your future holidays. Kind Regards Diane
