Thanks Danny and Sharon for a wonderful stay in your cottage which was so well supplied with everything we could possibly need and more.
We loved being able to give our grandkids a holiday close to the beach in such a supportive environment.
The cottage, situated in a lovely tranquil garden, was very clean and neat, with absolutely everything you need as a home away from home. The fresh bread, cheeses, snacks and wine were a lovely touch and most welcoming. The hosts were friendly but unobtrusive and left us to get on with our holiday.
The area was quiet with a charming "village" close by, as well as a train station a short distance away. We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone visiting Melbourne.
We had a lovely time at Danny and Sharon's. extremely thoughtful hosts and had everything we needed... Despite the windiest weather in a while was a great spot and easy to get to everything...
Was looking forward too staying here again. Knowing we could stay somewhere that had everything we needed was a comfort. It is a lovely area to visit. Danny is a lovely person and makes you feel very welcome
I spent just over two weeks at Danny and Sharon's lovely place. My first impression was that of relief as you never know what you're going to get until you arrive. I was very warmly greeted and shown through my new short term home. It was extremely comfortable and very well looked after. Danny and Sharon were perfect hosts and let me have my privacy. The home is very well stocked with everything you need to live very comfortably. If I head to Melbourne again, I will DEFINITELY be staying here as I couldn't have been happier - It was everything that I'd hoped for and then some. The location is great with a huge shopping centre just a 7 minute drive away and everything else you could possibly need within a few minutes. Thank Danny and Sharon for an absolutely fantastic experience!
A lovely cottage to stay in. Was just right for our stay whilst in Melbourne. Easy to find your way around Sandringham. Beach is only a short walk away. Have booked a second stay and looking forward to going back.
We had a great time staying in Danny's unit. Sandringham is a lovely area with a good coffee shop style culture and a great beach. The unit had everything that we needed and Danny leaving us a few provisions was a god send after our 24 hour flight!
The unit is a 20 minute walk from Sandringham station so be aware of that but Danny picked us up and dropped us at the station when we had luggage to take.
Overall, great place, great host and we'd love to go back.
Our stay has been truly memorable. Danny and Sharon are perfect hosts whose company we enjoyed immensely. Would recommend to anyone. Super self- contained accommodation in a peaceful garden setting.
