I love our Backyard, it makes me feel like i'm on a tropical island. The Cottage was build to accomodate friends and family from overseas and is now empty since the kids moved out. So what an opportunity to share this with the rest of the world.

The space

Our fully furnished, self-contained cottage offers accommodation for up to 3 adults or a small Family.
The open plan Cottage has a well equipped kitchen, a little sitting area, lounge and TV and a bed that can be separated by a curtain from the room. The couch diverts also into a double bed. There is a separate bathroom off the lounge/bedroom area. At the front of the cottage there is a deck with outdoor furniture.
You can also enjoy the solar heated pool on those hot summer days. There is a 4 burner hooded BBQ of the main house for use as well.

Guest access

The cottage has parking in front of the house. There is a separate Entrance to the Cottage, so no need to come in through the main house.

Interaction with guests

For years we have been hosting travellers, mainly backpackers and family from overseas and are now at a stage where our children have moved out. We would like to share our home with other people who are in need of accommodation with a difference. We are always interested in other cultures and travel stories, so if you want to share your stories, we like to hear them.

Other things to note

We offer a private stay suitable for all travellers, if you are coming from interstate or overseas, those coming to the area for special family occasions. Also Corporate stopovers who experience home comforts rather than a hotel room.

Birgit's place is exactly as described-a little tropical oasis. The pool looks very nice but winter intetvened. We'll be back to visit.

This little piece of paradise is a great place to stay! Warm, comfortable and feels like a home. Everything was clean and well set up with everything you could need and more! Very well appointed kitchen with everything to cook a meal, plus some lovely fruit and juice left for us, as well as some chocolates as it was our wedding night - which was a lovely touch. Living area has a comfy couch and movies to watch and the bed is very comfortable. Only suggestion I'd give to a guest is possibly to bring your own pillow, we found ours to be quite soft and not great if you have neck problems. Everything was PERFECT though. Would highly recommend.

Birgit and her husband Michael are extremely friendly, outgoing and helpful people. Their dog Phoebe is also a little treasure and really loves attention. The hut is very well appointed and lovely to stay in. I was there in winter so it was too cold to use the pool but in summer I'm sure it's fabulous for an afternoon swim. Excellent location, parking is no problem and there is lots to do in the area.

We have just spent the most amazing month in Birgit and Michaels 'hut'. It far exceeded our expectations and had everything we needed for an extended stay. Birgit and Michael, family, friends and pets made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The pool was divine as the weather was mostly hot and sunny. The location for us was ideal as it was 10 minutes from where our son is staying. A car is essential as it's quite a distance to walk anywhere. The only downside was that the trains were replaced by buses as there was work on the line but that was completed just after we left so it was just bad timing on our part. We would definitely recommend the hut as a place to stay and should we return to that area of Melbourne will consider staying there again.

Host was very welcoming and readily available when we had any questions. Accommodation is in the suburbs and a car is recommended but overall, suburb was nice and all amenities a short drive from the cottage.

I was born in Germany but met my Husband Michael in Australia as i was on holidays. I love the beach, the mountains, bikeriding, snowskiing and of course travelling! I am a good cook, well at least my kids and husband think so and enjoy foreign food. I am easy going and open …
