Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Christmas and were very happy with the accomodation. The kitchen is well supplied with crockery and utensils and salt, pepper, cooking oil, foil, gladwrap, tea, coffee, sugar and even fresh milk in the fridge. The bbq was spotless and ready to use and the outdoor area was a lovely spot for early morning coffee and birdwatching. The village shops and cafes of Paddington are a short walk and although the house is close to Hale St it is lovely and quiet. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for leaving City Cottage in such pristine condition after your stay Jennifer. We particularly appreciate your ability to overcome the small mishap yourself during this busiest time of the year and then report it to me after Christmas. It was very considerate of you and makes accommodating people like you such a pleasure.

My family visiting from Perth loved the open plan layout of the living and dining area. The location is perfect for getting around the to all the must-see spots in Brisbane. Peter was so helpful and responsive which made for a very easy stay.

Perfect location with all comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

City Cottage was the ideal property for an extended family stay in Brisbane. Proximity to all services, including parks and bikeways, was a great advantage. The layout of rooms worked well, with a lovely covered deck area providing relaxed dining in superb Brisbane weather.
