Had a fantastic stay with Margaret and her family. Location was perfect for us as we were visiting family nearby but is also ideal as it is only a 5 minute drive to the beach, shops and playgrounds but is incredibly serene and quiet. Ideally situated between Coffs and Woolgoolga it allowed us opportunities to visit a variety of cafes and restaurants. Margaret was incredibly helpful and accommodating and although the accommodation itself is not too far from the main house it did not feel intrusive and noise between the two was no issue. Would definitely recommend to others and hoping to stay again ourselves.

This is a large and well maintained property and a lot of thought has gone into the comfort of the guests - this is the best-stocked kitchen we have come across in all our AirBnb stays, for example. The area is quiet and relaxing and our hosts were lovely - very welcoming and accommodating. I would highly recommend this property to families or couples looking to get away from town but close enough to shops, restaurants and the beach.

Hi Sian. Thank you so much for the lovely review. We haven't been doing Airbnb for very long, and it Is great to know that we are getting it right. We have aimed to give our cottage a homely and welcoming "Aussie atmosphere" and deck it out in the way that we like to live. We are so glad that you and your family liked it and enjoyed your stay :) Best wishes Marg and Tony

Margaret welcomed us on short notice, after we had a very delayed drive because of the Cyclone Debbie flooding. I am greatly appreciative of the warm welcome and the abundance of supplies including muffins, fruit, biscuits and a good stock of tea and coffee. The home was quiet, easy to find and very comfortable. I can recommend Margaret and her home as a great place to vacation. Many thanks for a well needed rest even if it was only overnight.

I would like to thank Margaret. we unfortunately got caught in terrible traffic with a storm and rain, this delayed our arrival till very late and she was so patient and Kind, putting the kettle on for us on arrival and making us feel very welcome indeed. We use airbnb a lot and would definitely recommend Margaret's place and we will be back. Her cottage is very clean and very comfortable.

Margarets property is ideally situated for a private, quiet and relaxing stay in the countryside. The secluded house has got all aminities and is very spacious. The veranda is great for wild life watching. Margaret and her husband were very friendly and helpfull. Fully recommended.

Margaret and Tony were the perfect hosts. Available when we needed them but at the same time the accomodation was very private. Kitchen was well stocked. It felt like a holiday even though that was not the purpose of our trip. Great to come home each afternoon, sit on the verandah with a drink and watch the kangaroos and birds

I have lived in the area for over 30 years and my partner has been here for nearly 15 years,
I love watching the local wildlife, gardening and hanging out with friends and family. My partner and I both love fishing and just being together. We enjoy meeting new people, and love entertaining.
