Guest Reviews:

“Good location. Close to shopping and a short walk to cafes.”

Brian, June 2017

“I had a wonderful stay at Hollyoak Cottage last week. The cottage was exactly as I had wanted, exactly as the description and photos showed. An original old cottage, repainted, repaired and set up with modern conveniences, but retaining the original feel of polished floors and rugs, original windows, clawfoot bathtub and modern furniture that looks appropriate for the era. And I loved all the doileys and ducks. The sheets and towels were perfectly white and new, the property was clean, the kitchen had all the crockery appliances and utensils you’d need, and the owner kindly left milk in the fridge. The gardens were well kept, pretty and looked appropriate for the house and the area is quiet. The addition of the sunroom is beautiful especially in the morning as the sun starts to come in, and the blinds mean you could block the light out if you choose. I had a wonderful stay and absolutely loved the cottage. It was beautiful, quiet, and comfortable and had a home away from home feeling. Please pass on my thanks to the owner for keeping this property as it is with a perfect blend of the feel of the original but with modern conveniences. The booking process went smoothly, and the rental staff were very helpful when I telephoned. I would definitely book again in the future.”

Hollyoak cottage was perfect for our two day getaway. The cottage has seperate areas for four of us to comfortably sit and read or watch tele. Very sweet and clean and comfortable. Loved the coffee machine and the rolling pantry. Will stay again.

We also do believe that with the glass sun room it gives this cottage so much more room. The owner takes much pride in providing all amenities to make the guests stay most comfortable. We can't wait to assist you again on your next trip to the Southern Highlands.

We had such a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property to attend the Bowral home and garden show for 2 nights. The property was very clean and well stocked with all we needed for a relaxing time away. The highlights were the magnificent front gardens, and the veranda at the front where we enjoyed dinner and a few glasses of wine at the end of each day. We would certainly stay here again when in Bowral. It was really enjoyable and in a great location!

Average cottage

  • 3 of 5

Quite a cluttered and dated cottage and a fair distance from the main street of Bowral. Extremely tricky driveway to back out of, and banging electricity box door kept us awake all night as did the rattling windows.

Owner's Response: We are all very shocked to see this review on such a gorgeous little cottage. As you can see on previous reviews, guests loved their experience at Hollyoak Cottage. This house is very close to town, only 2 blocks away which makes everything so convenient. The driveway provides a turn around point which allows you to turn your car around and drive out. We are sorry to hear the banging fuse box kept you awake all night, we simply fixed this on your departure with a clip to hold it closed. We hope your stay at Hollyoak Cottage was relaxing minus these minor details.

lovely little cottage in bowral

  • 4 of 5

we stayed for 2 nites in august. very close to the bradman oval so great walks for the dogs. the house is set up well for 2 couples. only down side, bring your own wine glasses as the ones supplied are a little small, and not a full selection of cooking fry pans, so if planning on cooking up a big breakfast, take your won fry pan... gardens lovely, can be difficult getting out of the driveway however if u r not good at reversing..
