About the property

This 2 bedroom cottage is a true holiday house. With beautiful views of the lake and beaches which allow the family pet within a five minute drive, water activities for all are a must.

The property has a brand new luxury bathroom with free standing bath and rain maker shower as well as a refurbished kitchen with microwave and full sized stove offering very comfortable facilities.

Has potential

  • 2 of 5

A number of good things but back deck needed maintenance and furniture too weathered to sit on. Also we couldn't shut front security door. 'The 2nd 'double bed' was a single extended and there was no space in the room once extended. The 2nd bed was not made up and when I contacted the owner I was told that I was required to tell her that 2 beds were required. The Owner was was not pleasant. I was not happy paying to be talked to in the manner I was. It was cold at night and there were no instructions for the gas heater (or gas not turned on). The lounge was not comfortable. The bathroom was great, kitchen and main bedroom good, and my dog loved the backyard. The view of the lake was beautiful.

Owner's Response: HI Judy, I am extremely disappointed by your harsh review of the cottage. You also forgot to add that I was travelling home from Kiama and attended to the bedding as soon as I arrived home. Apologies if I was rude it was not my intention, just exhausted. You also forgot to advise me in your enquiry that you where bringing a pet. Whilst i do allow pets I charge $10 per night which you were not charged and I did not bring up because the bed was not made up. So a good gesture on my part results in a poor review on your behalf. Kind Regards Donna

Fabulous Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Selby Lakeside Cottage was everything I could have imagined that a couples getaway would be. Unimpeded views of the pelicans and black swans on the lake as we enjoyed drinks on the porch on arrival. There's a fish co-op just 50 metres from the cottage so you can pick up fresh seafood and the major supermarkets are a 5 minute drive away so you don't have to worry about travelling with a cooler bag! Hardly any noise from passing traffic meant a peaceful stay.The cottage was spotlessly clean and very comfortable if not a little dated but it had everything you could want so I would recommend this little gem.

Excellent cottage

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in this peaceful location. Everything nice and close and the bed was warm and cosy. Most enjoyable sitting on front deck having a wine, watching the sunset. The mornings were nice on the back deck having breakfast in the sun. Our little dog enjoyed the yard and walks in the neighbourhood so much.

Thanks Donna.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Selby in late Dec - early Jan. Very relaxing with everyone enjoying the lake, beaches and swimming near the caravan park. Cottage is well equipped, clean and tidy and the owners are extremely hospitable. We'll come back again. Thanks Donna.
