Overview

About the property

Originally an old miner's cottage, Schatzi's on Shalimah is a fully renovated two bedroom cottage. It is set up as a quiet couple's weekender however the second bedroom can be made available at a small extra cost for a small group seeking a Hunter getaway.

The large yard is fully enclosed with lovely lawns and shading trees for both pets and owners to while away their time when not busy sampling the wares of the many nearby wineries.

Inside

The cottage has all the mod cons including luxuriously appointed bathroom with heating and spa, the kitchen is well fitted out and includes fridge, microwave, electric oven, gas cooktop and even an espresso machine!

The lounge is a cosy space with reverse cycle air con, large LCD TV, DVD player and CD player.

Location

A lovely park is just a minute's walk away with Vincent Street (the hub of the town) within 5 minutes walk. Here you can enjoy breakfast or just a coffee at one of the many dog friendly cafes.

Great value!

  • 4 of 5

My partner and myself stayed at Schatzi's on Shalimah for 3 nights last weekend so that we could explore the Hunter Valley. We specifically chose this cottage because it was advertised as pet friendly and it absolutely did not disappoint.

The cottage was lovely, the bed was comfy and our pup thoroughly enjoyed herself. It had everything we needed and was really very considerate to dog owners, even to the point of providing dog treats which was a nice surprise!

We would not only stay here again but we would recommend it to fellow travellers. Well done Maria, many thanks from our little family.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fantastic time in the Hunter. Schatzi's was a great spot to relax and unwind. Maria was a great communicator and we had absolutely no worries. We were so glad that we could bring our small dog with us too, she loved the backyard!! We will definitely stay there again. Thanks so much Maria

Gorgeous and massive yard for puppers

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous comfy cottage, clean and fresh, and pupper loved the massive yard and the trees. Maria contacted me the same day of my enquiry, on a last-minute whim for an extra stayover on travels, and we were delighted. Great hot tub and more. Mere minutes to the shops by car. Relaxed for days in this lovely miner's cottage. So happy I shared pictures of us with the owner.

Interesting experience close to the Wineries

  • 2 of 5

Not a place we would recommend. Decent location close to the wineries and all the sites of the Hunter but the owner is not the easiest person to deal with and has no empathy for her guests or their experience. Poor customer service. Very disappointing. Such a beautiful area, with so many options, research before booking.

Enjoyable stay but buyer beware

  • 2 of 5

We enjoyed our time at shatzis. Great location and central to main strip and vineyards. Very accommodating lot for pets and children alike as.fully.enclosed and quite large block of land.

Beware of the price and your deposit as.it seems maria will attempt to seek out excuses to keep the deposit with outrageous claims of damage. No notice of keeping the deposit or reasons why and only given the "reason" upon our chasing up. Absolute disappointment as we were planning on returning but after this poor display of customer service and and communication we would much rather give our business to an honest person.

My advice to future stayers....if you decide it is the place for you no matter how much respect you will treat the property with expect to lose the deposit and just factor it in as part of the cost. Better just to stay elsewhere.

Disappointing maria...would have expected better of you.

Owner's Response: Having never had to withhold a bond before, I didn't realise that the detailed damage report that I submitted to Stayz wouldn't be passed on to you - I apologise for that. Losing just a $100 bond after causing over $400 of damage was pretty good for you! I hope you enjoy your future stays at other properties.
