Great family and dog friendly property

5 of 5
Highly recommended. This is a great property - just what a house by the beach should be. Comfortable, relaxed and in a good location. The added extras of pantry items, dvds/magazines and sports equipment were a bonus. The support and follow up by the owners was terrific. A great spot for our family, including our dog.

It’s the quaint essential “delightful cottage”

5 of 5
My family and I have been coming to Queenscliff for the last 8 years. This year we had to find a bigger place and we choose delightful cottage. Everything was perfect from booking to accesss of the property to check out. A wonderful place to stay Carmen has thought of everything you would need in your normal house and provided it in her gorgeous cottage! We look forward to many more years staying here.
