Sweet cosy cottage
Stayed here for two nights (4 people). It was a perfect base to explore the area as you could walk to and from town very easily. The place is comfortable and warm and we loved it.
Its a bit strange to be required to sweep and vacuum and wash and dry the linen and towels - especially given the price. Normally that would (or should) be included. It’s the kind of situation you would expect if you were borrowing a friends place, not paying $200 p/n.
Never the less, the owner was fantastic to deal with and very helpful and thoughtful - I would recommend staying here. (Oh, also BYO hairdryer!)
Dear Emily Hall
Our apologies regarding the missing hair dryer which is usually in the drawers. We wish you would have called or messaged us Emily and let us know you couldn’t find the hair dryer as we offered in our texts and emails that if we can assist with anything at all during your stay, or if anything is missing, requires replacement or not to your satisfaction, to please just call us to give us an opportunity first to rectify as sometimes items can be missed but are not intentional, rather than hearing this in review form.
We also outline our linen options on the website to assist guests in determining whether this accommodation may suit guests requirements prior to proceeding with a booking. The options are for guests to either bring their own sheets & pillow cases or, use the complimentary linen supply at the cottage conditional upon laundering themselves prior to departure. When a booking is confirmed we email another reminder again of our linen options (emailed 14 May) and during the booking process or the actual stay, guests can always contact us in the event circumstances change as we are able to charge a fee to launder for guests or, in special circumstances, ie: long stays, we may be able to offer complimentary linen and laundering.
It is also a standard condition that guests return the cottage tidy, similar to how it was presented which includes sweeping and vacuuming and we hope in offering a later 11am checkout that this additional time may also assist guests. If guests require additional vacate time we can often assist with a later check-out if we do not have another guest arriving the same afternoon.
Our normal rate reflected throughout most of the year is $160 for up to 4 adults and 2 children which we feel represents good value for a holiday location close to the beach. Ordinarily your stay would have been $160 per night however I see you booked a Public Holiday/Long Weekend for WA Day (31 May) and unfortunately Long Weekends, like Christmas, Easter and School Holidays all incur a surcharge which is published in the rates when making initial inquiry.
Most guest houses charge vacate cleans these days however we strive to keep our rates down to keep the cottage affordable to families. We also extend Maisie’s Cottage to families with pets and this is a real bonus so that families can holiday with their pet at no additional charge either. At the end of the day this is far from a luxury stay as we don’t have a bath, dishwasher or big oven but we strive to make it as comfortable as possible and always hope that guests will call us if they need something during their stay.
We’re very happy that overall you enjoyed your stay Emily and we’re grateful for your feedback and very sorry the hair dryer was not able to be located during your stay and certain things did not meet your expectations and we hope in explaining them above, it may clarify a few areas and re-assure future guests.
Thank you for a relaxing stay. Your cottage has everything. Just gorgeous ❤️
Great little property in a great location
A fantastically located and equipped property, Maisie's Cottage is in the centre of Busselton and a short walk from the beach, jetty and town. The property is fantastically equipped with bikes, books, games and kitchen equipment - while you may have to be creative about your cooking and wash up after yourself, it's not a big deal. Absolutely great place, the two of us and our dog loved it and we'll definitely be back.
Peace, perfect peace.
Maisie's Cottage is delightful, an example of a bygone era which suited my husband, our small dog and myself as a peaceful break for a few days. It is clean, comfortable and well equipped to suit a couple, a family with or without children. I loved the homely atmosphere and imagine it was a happy, well kept home to a previous generation. It is well situated in a quiet neighbourhood and an easy walk to the town centre, the sea-front or local pet friendly café which sold delicious food. Communication between parties was prompt and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay.
We have stayed at Maisie's a few times and love its charm and it's proximity to the beach.Thankyou Heidi for sharing this absolute gem
Very much as shown on the site. Cute, comfortable and convenient
We all very much enjoyed our stay. It was great to be able to walk to the beach. Our dog also loved it and we even had an outdoor shower. Everything you could need and a very helpful owner. Nothing too much trouble for them -would stay again. Very clean and loved the front verandah. The bakery on the corner is worth a try too!
