Special conditions

Our cottage is our pride and joy. Careful renters are welcome. We do not charge a cleaning fee, but expect the cottage to be left as you find it. The cottage is not suitable for children under 12 (other than new babies) . The property is not fenced, but we would negotiate well behaved dogs who will stay close to the house. Dogs are allowed inside, but not on the furniture. Sorry, but we do not allow renters to invite visitors to the cottage during the day or evening.

 Amazing. Perfect for time away! 

  •  Really good renter, prompt communications and payment. Would happily rent to this person again. highly recommended 

 Lovely little corttage made outstanding with the outdoor spa! 

 Sorry about the delayed feedback. We stayed in April and were disappointed. The loft was dirty and at the head of the bed there was layers of dirt and dust, not exactly romantic! The spa pool water was very dirty - we lifted the lid and could see substantial amounts of dirt in the water. We don't expect high standard from a batch, but basic cleanliness seems a reasonable expectation. On the plus side the owners were great to deal with, the garden is lovely and the location is great. 

 Cabbage Tree Cottage seemed to be a lovely little getaway on the bookabach site and from the positive reviews. Unfortunately on our stay here, the cottage was left in a very poor state of cleanliness & hygiene inside and the spa pool was dirty & unhygienic as well. Sad, as this place is in a great location and was definitely not anywhere near bookabach standard. 

  •  We feel that this renter had very high expectations of a bach. As can be seen from all our other feedback people have felt the cottage has been very clean and well presented. We trust our cleaner and other than accidently leaving food in the fridge from a previous renter, she assures us that the cottage was in the usual condition we rent it in- clean and tidy. We think this renter might be happier booking hotels rather than a rural cottage which is advertised as a bach not 5 star accommodation. 

 This was an amazing place to stay! Brilliant owners & just perfect for a couples retreat. The cottage itself is very well presented & in a great, peaceful location. Stroll down to the beach with some champagne, watch the surf, walk through the caves & enjoy the sunset. Hitch a ride back up the hill & relax in the hot tub. We'll be back for sure.
