Cosy, friendly, completely self contained, and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Whistle Stopover Cottage. Lesley and Peter were very welcoming and respected our privacy, while also being available if needed. The cottage had everything you could need, and it was great to be able to eat out some nights, and eat in with a movie others. A great variety of movies for adults and children alike. Cheese platter, lemon slice (my favourite), port and chocolates were a lovely touch thankyou. Close enough to lots of adventures, like the Kokoda 1000 Steps, William Rickett's Sanctuary, Gumbuya World (Wildlife Park), and you can catch Puffing Billy to Gembrook from the front gate which is pretty special. Cottage was so warm and cosy in the middle of winter. Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: It was great to meet you and so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. It was good that you managed to complete everything on your bucket list as the weather was so cold and wet. Thanks for the wonderful review and we welcome you back anytime. Maybe in warmer weather so the girls can have a swim in the pool! Lesley and Peter Whistlestopover

Our experience here was wonderful, from the warm welcome, to the first impression of the lovely cosy cottage. Lesley and Peter had everything there for us ready to ensure we had a enjoyable stay. Even had the Gas log fireplace going for us when we arrived. We cant wait to go go back again!
