This is the second time my partner, dog and I have stayed at Diane's beautiful cottage and hopefully not the last. The cottage is the perfect location for a getaway, a short walk to the spectacular Bawley Beaches. Each morning we were greeted by local wildlife coming right up to the cottage. The cottage is cosy and has all the amenities required for a great holiday. Diane is the perfect host providing all the comforts required and being available for any other requests. We would not hesitate recommending this cottage to anyone looking for a place on the south coast of NSW.
This was a lovely, private cottage for our stay of three nights. Diane was very nice, greeted us as we arrived and assured us she'd be around if we needed anything (but the cottage had everything we needed). Very nice, quiet area with a quaint shopping block (IGA, bakery, bottle-o) nearby, and short drive from numerous beautiful beaches. Very little phone reception in the area but ample Wifi at the cottage. Easy arrival and convenient getaway. Thanks, Diane!
A very small cottage in a lovely environment, with a welcoming and helpful host. Good Value.
We loved grandpas cottage. Such a lovely setting with kangaroos popping by in the morning. The cottage was extremely clean and tidy with everything we needed. Super cosy, wonderful bed. Perfect for a couple! Diane was great to deal with! Would definitely recommend.
We had a wonderful experience at Grandpa's cottage with nothing to fault. Dianne was a wonderful host very friendly and respected our privacy. Dianne has thought of everything for Grandpa's cottage to make it more than a comfortable stay for her guest. Thank you very much Dianne we we will be back.
What a delightful little cottage in beautiful Bawley Point. Couldn’t have asked for a cosier stay. The attention to detail and use of space are brilliant (thanks for the chocolates and nice selection of teas!), the bed super comfortable, and there was even a little enclosed yard for our dog to sniff around in.
Be sure to check out the glorious night sky!
Our stay at grandpa's cottage was very pleasant. Diane welcomed us when arrived. The cottage is comfortable and clean. A great place for a weekend getaway
