About Barbara Pruks

Hi, I work in the health profession supporting staff with telecommunications and emergency procedures. I am from a large family and really appreciate the chance to gather everyone together and relax. I grew up in Wollongong and have moved around a bit since then. I loved living in Benalla, it is a very friendly town and great to come back to often.

Barbara Pruks purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Barbara Pruks chose Benalla West

I bought this cottage because I love the location and the proximity to the lake. It means a lot to me to sit on the back porch and listen to the birds singing in the morning. Benalla is such a friendly town and close to so many attractions, including the Lake walk and Winton Raceway.

What makes this cottage unique

I also appreciate the beautiful ceilings and wooden floors this cottage has to offer. It is a lovely character home built in 1951. The rooms are large and the ceilings are high so there is always that feeling of space even when there are large groups in residence. The cottage also caters for Dogs On Holiday

Beautiful Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The house was gorgeous, all the period charm with modern conveniences. Close to town but far enough away to be peaceful. Close to the lake and beautiful walks. Our dog Zodi loved sitting on the back porch watching people as they passed by.

This was the most relaxing holiday I’ve had in a long time. We will definitely be coming back again. Maybe next time with a few friends.

Thank you Barbara and thank you to your caretaker. She was lovely, friendly and the cleanliness of the house is a credit to both of you.

Thank you again.

Convenient, clean well organised for an overnight stay, pet friendly a big bonus.

  • 3 of 5

Great location by the lake with tracks to walk the dogs and close to fast food restaurants for a quick meal. Very comfortable bed with electric blanket most welcome, however the regular passing of freight trains through nearby level crossing during the night put paid to a good sleep. Everything needed was supplied, the woodfire was tempting as it was set and ready to go, but as a quick overnight I passed on this. Perhaps a nice cosy throw rug on the sofa I would suggest. Also, in your folder of local attractions maybe would be helpful to pop in some menus of local restaurants...Perhaps some toiletries in the bathroom could be an added welcoming touch. Otherwise a good spot to break a long road trip.

Clean and comfortable, ample car parking and facilities

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay with family and friends for a weekend in Benalla.

The house is very clean and welcoming, with a wood fire in the lounge room a great addition.

All beds were comfortable, plenty of cutlery, plates and cups available.

Thank you.

Will stay again.

Attractive location, near beautiful walkways

  • 3 of 5

Attractively made-up, comfortable bed and good deep bathtub compensated for lack of information about how to find the place. It lacked the kind, hospitable touches of other Stayz properties we have recently visited. The rear deck had the distinct door of cat urine, and there was no information about heating the place.

Owner's Response: Hi Steve, On consideration of your feedback it would have been best if you had taken up the offer to be met on site rather than manage alone. I am sorry about the smell of cat at the rear of the place and will get on to it immediatly. Thank you for your feedback it is always appreciated Kind regards Barbara
