    Fabulous location, always quiet and clean and well provisioned. Bed is so big and comfortable and walking to the park so easy. Gorgeous property. Cannot say enough good things about our Red Door Experience.

  • We have stayed here on a couple of occasions as it is...

    We have stayed here on a couple of occasions as it is very pleasant, comfortable, has all the amenities needed (kitchen is well set up) and is close to the CBD and Merivale. Good set up summer or winter.

  • Beautiful, beautiful cottage

    Beautiful, beautiful cottage. Wife and kids fell in love with the place and we ended up spending more time at the property than exploring the city !! Very comfortable living lounge and a fully equipped modern kitchen. It is so well stocked with everything you possibly need in preparing a meal at home. Will definitely come back again for a return visit.

    Superb property. Good location for local shops in Merivale while only a short bus ride into the city which suited us very well.
