Accordingly this rate does not allow for the extra wear associated with functions in terms of cleaning, garbage removal, wear and tear, repairs etc. Use contrary to this may result in additional payments being due.

Damage, breakages, theft and loss are the tenants responsibility during their stay, however we are understanding when genuine accidental damage occurs.

6 of us stayed at the Cottage while attending a conference at the Deakin Waterfront Campus. I can't emphasise enough just how impressed we were with this property. The photos really don't do it justice. The 4 bedrooms are generous in size so we weren't getting in each others way and the common room kitchen, dining and lounge rooms are huge both by themselves and especially in the open plan arrangement. There were several lovely evenings on the deck with the BBQ as well. 10 out of 10. Definitely top of the list when I visit Geelong again.

We stayed in The Cottage for my niece's wedding. It easily and comfortably accommodated our family group of 7 people and would accommodate a few more. The instructions of how to get the key and into the cottage were provided a few weeks before our arrival and easy to follow. The Cottage was very clean, well appointed and spacious. It has everything you need, including a hair dryer, and all kitchen requirements, linen and towels provided. The Cottage is in a great location, a very quiet area, surrounded by character homes of the same era and within walking distance ( 5 to 10 mins) of three main supermarkets, a pharmacy and number of restaurants. We walked to the waterfront on evening and it took about half an hour, an easy walk. It is an easy 10 minute or less drive to the waterfront precinct. A great place to stay for a family group.

The house is better than it looks in the photographs. We were very impressed with the standard of cleanliness and care. It was an extremely comfortable environment, with enough space for our 8 guests to share. All the amenities were supplied and that was fantastic. We had a great time, we will be coming back!

We're a family, helping other families and groups travel comfortably. We find that staying in a residential, self-contained space is so much easier than hotel-hopping. As long as there's somewhere to sleep, cook, relax and connect to the internet we're happy. You will be too!
