Kara Cottage is situated across the driveway from our own home and is set in a private garden oasis. Cows graze the paddocks surrounding our property and we also have a loveable, ginger cat called Patrick.

Enjoy breakfast on the front sunny veranda and relax with a sundowner and barbecue later in the day on the rear deck.

The cottage is fully self-contained with a full sized oven/cook-top, fridge-freezer and microwave. Tea, coffee and milk are provided, together with Continental breakfast provisions for the first morning of your stay.

The bathroom has a large built-in vanity, toilet, shower, heated towel rail and washing machine. There is also a clothes airer, iron and ironing board.

Towels are provided and the queen bed in the master bedroom and king single bed in the second bedroom are made up with bed linen and electric blankets.

For your comfort, the heat pump will keep you warm during Winter and provide air-conditioning during the hot Summer months.

We look forward to welcoming you to Kara Cottage. You can be assured of your absolute privacy throughout your stay without any interruptions. If, however, you have any questions or need help with your travel plans, we will be around and happy to help.
