Great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage next door to owner Katie, with 2 comfortable bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin), large open plan sitting room / kitchen and outdoor seating area. Offstreet parking in driveway, great coffee shop at street corner, convenience store and restaurants in walking distance - easy! The cottage has a great kitchen, besides which Katie supplied us with fresh fruit, milk, teabags, etc. - very much appreciated, thank you!

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at the Gardenvale Cottages and like my first the experience was like being at home. The property manager was very accommodating to my needs and the location is so handy when traveling interstate on business to get to many locations, meet friends/ clients for breakfast/dinner or simply eat alone. Martin Street has such a great vibe and so handy - a hidden gem like these cottages. Looking forward to staying again soon

Lovely house away from the crowd

We loved to come back to this cosy house in the evening after exploring the busy city. Its only a relaxed 15 minutes by train to downtown. Thank you Katie for your friendly advice and good sense of humour ;-) We would always come back!

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at Gardenvale Cottages. It was a lovely house with everything we needed, and is obviously lovingly looked after by the owners. The location was great - easy access to public transport and shops. The kids (aged 3 and 5) loved it - thank you for providing the toys! We'd definitely stay again and would recommend it to anyone looking for family friendly accommodation.
