We had a wonderful stay at Gary's cottage, which is in a great location, close to the city centre, and quiet. It is very well equipped, the breakfast provisions were generous and the tea selection is fabulous. The back courtyard is a great area to relax in.

My friend and I stayed for three nights at Gary's Cottage. We chose there due to close proximity to Arts Precinct, shops and restaurants. Gary is a awesome host and communication impeccable. Cottage is cosy and welcoming, the outside entertaining areas very inviting. Loved the added touches of the blackboard. Very clean, and well equipped cottage. We wanted for nothing. Thanks Gary.

Comfortable old cottage near CBD. Quirky sloping floors and doorframes that aren't quite straight give a period charm. Nice sitting area out back. Gary has thought of most things to make stay easy. Easy walking distance of city centre but quiet.

I started off thinking " if you go to Bendigo stay at Gary's" but my message to the AirBnB community is " Go to Bendigo so that you can stay at Gary's place" Everything is as described/pictured or better. Really great host ( and we have had a lot )

Gary's place was the perfect escape. So many things make this listing special. Cottage was comfortable, nice outdoor areas to enjoy, the muffins and chocolates YUM!! Even got to meet Gary when we were leaving. Can't wait to come back.

Hi, I have recently retired from the education department and now enjoying some long awaited travel. Bendigo has been my home for over 30 years and in that time lve seen the city change into a vibrant, cosmopolitan destination.
