Comfortable, clean and very welcoming cottage
My mate and I stayed one week over Xmas in this lovely cottage with our key goal to fish Stockton Beach.
The week was great, fishing the beach early morning and then returning to the cottage to relax through the day.
The cottage was well presented, very clean, air conditioned with excellent TV (Netflix etc) and wifi service.
We also appreciated that all linen was supplied.
Bedrooms have ample room with very comfortable beds. Because it was a very hot week, with warm nights, my only area of improvement would relate to having fans in those rooms.
Having Woolworths close by was also positive and we also recommend the local bowling club bistro just a short walk down the road.
Overall a very pleasant stay at a very reasonable price.
Thank you Penny.
Thanks for such a lovely review Ken.
Yes, good suggestion about installing fans in the bedrooms. It was a very hot week.
Loved staying here will stay again
I stayed at Penny’s home for 2 nights and it was great house was so clean and had everything we needed.
Had Netflix , wifi was great, and wasn’t 5 mins walk to woolies and 8 min drive to town would love to stay again
Clean and Comfortable
Stayed here for two nights. Felt like it was at our second home. Everything was clean and the cupboards and fridge had more than we needed (milk, juice, coffee, tea, sugar, sauce, etc.) We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Penny.
Thanks for your lovely response Tamer. I’m pleased you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure having you as a guest.
clean, neat and just what I wanted
nothing bad to say... located in a quiet street, it was a perfect location for my needs whilst I was there.
Many thanks for the feedback Rob. Pleasure to have you as a guest. My home was left immaculate. Highly recommend Rob to other hosts. Kind Regards, Penny
Comfortable and charming home away from home
Stayed at this home in Mayfield West, Newcastle with my sister and son for a 5 night stay. Penny was responsive at all times to our queries and left us some fresh milk which was great when arriving late in evening. Entry at night was easy and the home is warm and inviting, we were able to make the small sitting room into a 3rd bedroom area for my son. Main bedroom has an exceptionally comfortable mattress and there is plenty of wardrobe space and light. The bathroom is modern with a great shower. The 2nd toilet outside and laundry facilities were great. Woolworths is nearby for groceries and next time I might bring the dog as there is a fully enclosed very large backyard. My only let down would be the stove/oven which has seen better days, although we ate out most nights. A vacuum and mop would also be handy for cleaning. Apart from that, our stay was very comfortable and can fully recommend. Thanks Penny.
Sorry about the vacuum and mop..I took them away after cleaning; before your arrival.
Yeah..poor old oven...fair comment. It has been a issue finding a replacement that is narrow enough to fit the space...it still works though..gives the place some authenticity!! ha ha
See you next visit!
Good location and an ideal home for a small family.
We spent 4 weeks in this home and were quite comfortable. The owner was very responsive to any questions or concerns. The neighbourhood was in a good location and the local residents were very friendly. A huge park around the corner was great for playing with kids and the dog. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a longer term getaway or temporary home.
