“WOW. Where do I begin??! Save yourself time and don't look anywhere else - stay here! Den and Sue's place is simply magical. The fire place as well as a heat pump ensures all year round comfort. The bed is SO comfy, and the smart TV with Netflix allowed for a relaxing night in for my sister and I. The bathroom is sensational with a rain shower head. The kitchenette is very sufficient with everything you could need. Den and Sue's thoughtful touches such as the welcome basket with nibbles and the muesli, coffee, tea, bread and spreads in the kitchen / fridge were so thoughtful. The space looks out to the shared back yard, however the studio provides ample privacy and is completely separate from the main home - even with your own private outdoor seating area and entrance (down a lit path - very handy when arriving home in the dark). The view from the space is amazing. We enjoyed watching the sunset and all of the stunning colors that filled the sky right above us. Den's communication was fast, friendly and detailed, and the info book in the studio was thorough and fabulous! Wifi was a bonus. I also LOVED the "takeitoff" face cloth that was available for use in the bathroom. I had never heard of this product and loved it so much that I am absolutely going to purchase one for myself! The location is extremely handy to a number of restaurants, cafes, parks etc and the beach is only a hop away. Located in a safe and beautiful neighborhood with ample off street parking. The value for money here was truly second to none. Do yourself a favor and stay here! TEN OUT OF TEN. Thank you again Den and Sue - hope to see you again soon.”

“We were visiting family who live a block from Jackie so the location was most convenient for us. We arrived late and really appreciated that Jackie unlocked the unit and turned on the lights for us. The space had everything we needed and there were lots of breakfast options. Price was great so, all in all, awesome value.”

“Sabine & Mark offer a very cosy environment. It’s truly something that you can’t get from a motel - Quality milk with the best cereal (not sure what it was but it was delicious, like a chocolate muesli), bottled water, top of the line shampoo & conditioner (which both of my brothers enjoyed too!) + body wash. One of my brothers forgot their tooth brush and their was even one provided in a box. The bed had an electric blanket even though the room is really warm which is awesome! Sensor lights in the bathroom because the normal light is so bright, perfect during the night. Tv so easy to use, your grandmother would know how to put Netflix on. Extra towels provided. Even though we were only staying the night, (and not saying that we needed it) but it was awesome to see so many rolls of toilet paper provider. I could go on about how ‘above & beyond’ the place is but it’s a lot better experiencing it yourself.”
