A gorgeous cottage.

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.

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

  • 5 of 5

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!
