Our light and airy cottage is your chance to escape in style. Hardwood floors, a brand new kitchen, high-end furnishings, and a mature private garden make this the perfect space for your family. All just a short stroll from cafes, bars & shops.


Newly renovated and stylishly furnished, this spacious cottage is situated on a quiet street just 4 blocks from Summer St and within easy walking distance to everything.

We’re guests ourselves and have experienced first-hand what it’s like to arrive at a poorly equipped home. Darling Cottage is anything but! You’ll find everything you need for a comfortable stay including linen, blankets, towels and electric blankets. The fully equipped kitchen contains pantry staples and breakfast provisions, and all guests receive a bottle of local wine on arrival.

For those travelling with pets or little ones, you’ll find a few essential extras. For your dog we provide a water bowl, some dog toys & dog treats. For your kids we provide a highchair, cot & sheets along with a box full of toys and games.

Outside you’ll find a fully fenced, mature garden, offering a private haven for you to indulge in a some well-earned R & R.  Sip a glass of something cold next to the vine-covered pergola, before picking some fresh herbs from the garden for your evening meal. On a cool evening you could end the day next to the outdoor fire (wood, matches and firelighters are provided).

At the front of the house, you'll find a beautiful, west-facing verandah, where you can watch the setting sun. It’s also our favourite spot for enjoying a morning coffee as the established garden provides plenty of privacy.

Wi-fi internet connection is available throughout the house.

We are more than happy to give suggestions for the best places to see, things to do and food/wine to try! We really love it when people feel at home, so please feel free to relax and live like a local.

We encourage a minimum of 2 nights for all bookings at the cottage.

Darling Cottage is a lovely cottage recently renovated to a high standard. Lovely touches were the pantry basics supplied and of course the welcoming bottle of wine and fresh plums.
