Relaxing stay in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our early summer stay at Wongabeena cottage. The cottage was well-provided, and the air conditioner was welcome on the hot days. Our hosts and their dog Shadow were very welcoming and helpful, particularly when there was a power outage on the first night. We were provided with fresh eggs from their own chooks that tasted wonderful. It was great location-wise - on top of the hill with great views of the surrounding area, 10 minutes from town, and a bit of a bird-watcher's paradise. Thanks for a great stay, Kees and Martina!

Clean & comfortable

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, keeping warm by the fire on the comfortable sofa. Beautiful countryside.

Make sure you bring your own shampoo & conditioner.

If you are looking for a great place to eat, you have to try Bos Taurus in Mansfield. We both had 1 of the best meals we have ever eaten.

Fabulous Property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Wongabeena. The cottage is just beautiful and the scenery gorgeous- The cottage was lovely and clean as well as very warm and cosy even though the nights were quite chilly

Our dog Blaze had a great time with Shadow - not sure who won the game of chasey but they both had a fun time

The hosts were great to deal with providing full instructions on how to get to the property as well as local tourist information

We only wish we had had more time but will definitely be back

A gorgeous little cottage with stunning views, magnificent surroundings and delightful farm animals - what more could we have asked for?!!!! We had a wonderful time at Wongabeena, our daughter adored the animals and we were thrilled that we too could bring our little dog along on our mini holiday!

Absolutely amazing, thank you Kees and Martina! We will certainly be back!
