There was absolutely no fault to this gorgeous place.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent 2-night stay

A very nice and cozy cottage in a small town. We stayed at the twilight cottage for 2 nights. The owners are friendly.

4/5 Good

Convenient location and peaceful

The hosts were very friendly and the room was ready for us when we arrived. The room was very cosy and equip with everything you need. There were plenty of Eggs and Oranges for us. Juice the fresh oranges in the morning was quite a nice start. Plenty of different type of tea fro Tea Leaves to suit all your need and fresh Ground Coffee was there for anyone who love fresh coffee. We enjoyed the packed food from Wild Oak Restaurant in the freezer on the second night. Bathrobes and Slippers are there for you. All amenity that you need (apart from Toothbrush). We didn't get to use the Spa bath, perhaps next time. The garden corner for afternoon tea in a beautiful day was a bonus or morning breakfast in the garden. We had breakfast on the window corner of the living area which was very nice as well. The negative will be the room was a little dusty including the bed, so I wasn't sure when was the last time it has been used. So I have to dust it a little bit as I have bad dust allergy. It will be nice if the bed is cover if it's not been used. And a little dusting on all benches will be great as well. Perhaps also check the fridge if any previous guests left unused food/bottles will also a good thing. Incase it's over due or pass expiry date. The place was in a walking distant to Olinda shops and restaurants. So we didn't need to drive after drinking a lot of wine. Over experience were great. And I would like to visit again in the future.

Pros: Cosy, peaceful and have everything we need

Cons: Bed cover in any case that no guest staying for long period. Dust before the next guest arrive and check the fridge for left over from previous guests

Location: Olinda Shops is a must to walk around. Wild Oak restaurant is also good to visit for dinner.
