A cozy cottage in the heart of Melville. Two blocks away from 7th street's restaurants and clubs and one block from 27 Boxes. You will never say this cottage is in the middle of a big city. The setting, next to the pool, surrounded by trees is peaceful and quiet.

Amazing detached house in Melville. 2 blocks away from the main Street with lots of nice cafes/pubs/restaurant. Don't miss going to 27boxes too. Lisa was there to welcome us. Lovely and very clean space, nice touch with some wine and some things to eat! Highly recommend it!

A complete delight! Lisa’s cottage is exquisitely furnished, with no expenses spared on finishes, bedding etc. It was meticulously clean and fragrant, with the gentle cooing of doves in the morning. She has amazing taste, and both decor and garden are incredibly stylish. A comple…

One of my favourite Melville accommodation options. Lisa never fails to deliver a safe, quiet and convenient space, with all sorts of thoughtful touches (even to the extent of buying a special pillow for my comfort!). Highly recommended.
