Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We were attending a show at Anita's theatre and really just needed a bed for the night. Garden Haven was warm and welcoming on a blustery night. Had everything that we needed, and could not have been more comfortable and convenient.

Fantastic nights Stay !

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I stayed here for one night as we were attending a wedding at nearby Panorama house up the road and didn't fancy the 1 1/2 hour drive home to Sydney late at night. Margaret was there to greet us on our arrival Saturday and very kindly accommodated our in laws who came back to the apartment with us between ceremony and reception for a cup of team and chat. The property is very nicely appointed and a quick 5 minute walk into town. We were especially impressed with the warm croissants that were dropped off outside our room at 8am on Sunday ! Highly recommended.

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a night here on our way to visit friends- and had such a relaxing night away that it felt like two! The owner of the property was so accommodating and you couldn't ask for more. A short walk into town where we had a lovely meal at a quaint Italian restaurant.

Would not hesitate to recommend to future quests and look forward to an opportunity to return. Thanks

Well-equipped, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Garden Haven is in a very convenient location on a quiet street just a short walk from town, where there are a number of restaurants and good shops. The beach is also an easy walk. The room was spacious, comfortable and well-furnished and the kitchenette is more than adequate, especially when complemented on day 1 by croissants.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay with Margaret. We were running hours late and this wasn't a problem at all for her- she greeted us cheerfully and happily.

She then showed us to the studio which was lovely and clean and well equipped. There were even some basic supplies and fresh croissants provided.

It was a very short walk into thirroul.

convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Garden Haven was great for us. We were heading to a gig at Anita's Theatre and chose Garden Haven for its location and price. It was a very short walk to the train station and main street. The room was clean and comfortable. The one very minor issue was we initially had trouble finding the light for the toilet (it's near the door in the bedroom). Margaret was an excellent host and the (optional) fresh croissants were a nice touch.
