Moments from the city, RAH, and beaches, this cottage offers great security and peace of mind while the world goes by outside.
While Banksia Cottage was built in 1910, she offers all the lovely conveniences of a new build. The 2 bedrooms have their own reverse cycle air conditioners, plush new mattresses and stylish bedding. Bedroom 1 also has a desk and chair for those who are working from home.
The kitchen has been renovated with new appliances and benchtops to show off a stylish scandi look. Have your coffee anyway you like - instant, driplolater, espresso or nespresso. Did we say we like coffee? If there’s a pot or tool you can’t find while cooking up a storm, just let us know, we might have one you can use.
Relax on the leather lounge while watching your friends and family cook. Snuggle up for a read or stream your favourite shows on the Smart TV. Set the reverse cycle air conditioner to a comfortable temperature and relax.
The bathroom has been full renovated and features a full length bath with caddy to hold your wine and ipad. The extra wide shower offers an overhead rain dumping shower rose and a hand held shower head. A combined AEG washer/dryer has been installed to ensure you can get any laundry done while you stay with us. It has a great intuitive display.
You'll find the usual hair dryer and straightener for your use as well. We provide Sukin shampoo, conditioner and body wash in pump packs. Those individual tubes are not the best for our environment.
The gorgeous outside area is where you'll love to entertain your friends while you stay in Banksia Cottage. Outdoor seating for 6 at the large teak table, a monster BBQ to cook up feasts and a Balinese day bed for those too tired to sit at the table (or a lovely reading spot). On those cold nights, light up the fire pit in the open area and make some smores with your friends.
Yes, we’re pet friendly. The house is not suitable for large breed dogs. All pet stays & visits are negotiated, if you have not discussed this prior to your stay, we may ask you to leave. There is no lawn at the rear of the property, just pavers and cement. There is lawn out the front and there is the possibility of closing all gates out front so your doggo can roll on the grass. Just talk to us, we’ll try and figure something out.
For stays longer than a week, we might ask you to water the lovely plants inside and outside of the house.
