Shirley's home is the kind of sanctuary I would love to retreat to every weekend. Shirley has a great sense of style and taste and it's very much reflected in her beautiful cottage. Equally as lovely is Shirley! I hope to visit again.

Thanks Shirley! The cottage was so comfortable and cosy, and the morning light in the patio was just gorgeous. Private and quiet but convenient to shops and geelong cbd. Just what I needed for the weekend! Shirley was a great host, friendly and welcoming - checking in was easy!

Shirley was very welcoming. A beautifully clean place and well maintained garden and it felt very homely. Wish we could have stayed longer.

The photos did not do this cottage justice. It was so beautiful, clean and well organised. Walking distance to cafes and shops. Shirley was really helpful.

Shirley's place was an excellent find for us. We enjoyed having our own cottage. It was lovely to sit in the living room with the exterior view into the courtyard. And the bedroom had lovely double doors opening onto the balcony. The cottage has been beautifully renovated - keeping its heritage charm with all the modern conveniences. The cottage was close enough to walk into Geelong centre. We came for a play at the Geelong Performing Arts Centre which we reached via a lovely walk through Newtown and into the arts district. Newtown was a great place to go for brunch and dinner. There were many fine cafes and restaurants.
