What an excellent little getaway for the weekend! The space was beautiful, cosy and nice and warm with the fire. The kitchen was excellent, the bed comfy and everything was spotless. Our hosts were just lovely, very accommodating, and I can honestly say I've never been taught so much about truffles before.
The added bonus was of course Ella and Harry, the best two, energetic, furry, 4-legged greeters and guides that you could hope to find anywhere.
Very well presented with everything we needed. We have enjoyed our stay. Thanks very much!
Lovely house, plenty of room for everyone. Clean and warm on a cold Ballarat stay.
We really enjoyed our two night stay at Black Cat Cottage. The cottage was really comfortable and cosy for us plus our toddler. Loved the addition of electric blankets! The kitchen was so well stocked with supplies, it was so easy to cook up a meal both evenings particularly with so much inspiration from the amazing collection of cook books to peruse. We didn't get a lot of time to enjoy the surrounds (toddler in toe) but the time that we had, the farm is so lovely and really very interesting. We were really grateful for the time that Lynette and Andres gave us to explain more about the truffle industry. A must is to visit the French Patisserie in Creswick - amazing!! Love to return again!
Absolutely amazing home!!! It was so child and family friendly. Loved the books, bath toys, childrens toys, electric blankets and exceptionally quiet location. The house was lovely and warm as Andres turned the heaters on before our arrival. Really loved the choice of breakfast options and the location was also terrific. Will definately be staying here again! Thank you for an amazing stay!!!
Thank you Andres for a lovely stay. Your house was exactly as described and I loved your attention to the small details in the house. And, while some aspects of the night did not go to planned, you did everything in your ability to help us. I loved that the heating was already on as it was a cold Ballarat night!
A lovely, quiet neighbourhood, the house was warm and exactly as described - if anything it was much bigger than we expected. The bedrooms were very spacious with comfortable beds and good quality linen and pillows. The stocked fridge was a lovely surprise and Andres made check in and check out seamless. Would absolutely stay here again, there was even a small café just around the corner.
Yes, unfortunately the vertical blinds need replacing on a number of windows. We intend to do this over the coming months. Apologies re: the wrong house number!!
I spent a weekend at the Black Cat Cottage with two friends. We had a wonderful time at Andres and Lynette's place. The cottage is exactly like on the photos, very clean, cosy and comfortable. The lounge room has plenty of books and board games, the kitchen is large and well stocked with a beautiful view over the peaceful garden. The property is vast with secluded spots and located in the middle of the countryside. I loved having the gorgeous dogs around, Ella and Harry. Our host were very friendly, thoughtful, generous and kind. We didn't meet Andres but Lynette came to see us briefly in the evening and gave us some tasty truffle bits.
We had a great stay at the Black Cat Cottage. The cottage is connected to main house and shares a yard and driveway, garden etc. The kitchen is massive and has everything you need. The bathroom was super clean and fresh and lovely as well. The beds and linens were all very clean and comfy and we all had a great night's sleep. Andres lit the fire for us so we were toasty warm as well!
If you are afraid of dogs I would not recommend this listing, as Andres says, they are quite friendly and active and do jump a bit, so that's something to keep in mind if you're not a dog lover. We had a great experience here and learnt a lot about truffles too! Thanks Andres and Lynette for sharing your cottage with us.
Black cat cottage was absolutely stunning. Spacious, comfortable, cosy and stocked with everything you could possibly need. From someone who loves little details, the attention to detail was so appreciated. The property is beautiful and peaceful. Creswick is a great funky little town with a great sat morn market. The hosts were friendly, helpful and lovely. Thanks for a great stay :-)
Andres was visiting the Canberra region for a truffle conference. Although we only got to speak to Andres briefly during his stay, he was very friendly and easy going. He left everything in perfect condition and we would welcome him back anytime.
Andres and jus wife was very nice, they are perfect host !
It was great to welcome Andres and his friends at our house during their stay at Carcassonne. As being respectful of the house and its environment, we recommend them to other Airbnb owners. We tried our best so that they have a great experience at our house, and sincerely hope it was the case, and that we will have the opportunity to see them again on our beautiful city and region!
Andres and his wife were lovely to have in the house. They were effortless to manage, very polite, clean and friendly. They left the room in a great condition.
Nice, friendly couple. They only stayed for a short stay but I would recommend them to everyone.
Andres and his lovely wife stayed for just one night and were great guests - polite, timely and very respectful of the house and other guests.
