We had a wonderful stay at the Hilltop Cottage. It's the perfect country getaway for a young couple or small family. We were travelling with our baby daughter and there were plenty of toys and even a baby seat for convenience. The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing stay and the hosts are very helpful in suggesting all the local food and sightseeing hotspots. About the only issue we had was the wifi which dropped in and out but seemed to work best on the front deck. Of course there's plenty more to do on the property including the salt water pool & tennis court (as well board games & movies for the evenings) so you definitely will keep yourself entertained. Hope to stay here again soon! Thanks again Paul & Debbie

So close to Sydney CBD and yet a world away. We loved every minute of our stay. Very peaceful and quiet, yet comfortable. Great pool, too.

It's really difficult to know where to start! We got amazing rate for a countryside cottage all to ourselves. Debbie and Paul were prompt in replying back our messages. Paul was there to welcome us. I showered him with 100 questions about things unrelated to our cottage, as we have just moved to Australia. He was kind and patient and very informative and answered most of my inquiries. They both kept checking on us if we need anything. The cottage itself is a jewel. So warm and cozy, with a plenty of light coming through. Loved all the beautiful antiques everywhere. I found a book signed in 1958 in their book collection. A real treasure. I loved our porch the most. We had fantastic view of the whole hill and the beautiful trees. Rafael spotted a wallabi jumping outside. That was a beautiful surprise. The bed was comfortable with a plenty of closet space.. You may stargaze looking through the huge bedroom window to the magnificent open sky.. It just reminded me of my grandmother house, where we enjoyed the antique stuff, fresh air, and open sky. If you love dogs, they have Leila, an active and fun dog, our son, Dani, grew a friendship with her. We adored her and her passion to play. We also visited the rabbit and chickens there. Debbie and Paul offered us fresh milk, and eggs when we arrived. You will also never run out of things to do there, with 2 book shelves stacked with board games, movies, CDs, and books. The tennis court and swimming pool. Also don't miss breakfast or lunch at the Glenorie Bakery which is 5 min drive. Definitely one of our best stays! And we didn't only had great hosts, but I'm sure we got our first true friends here in Australia. :)

We love being AirBNB hosts, welcoming people from near and far into our homely Hilltop Cottage. We feel very fortunate to be able to live in this beautiful area and to share our serene little corner of the world.
Paul is a semi-pro musician, while also doing a doctorate in music, and the gardening. Debbie is a professor at a nearby university and is dedicated to making the world a better place through improving corporate social responsibility. Paul is a pretty good pizza maker and we're both vegetarians.
