We loved it at Pappa Sven's!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Pappa Sven's Summer Cabin was fantastic. The home itself is beautifully decorated throughout, full of light, with a lovely courtyard garden. The suburb of Cook's Hill is full of fabulous places to eat and shop and close to Newcastle's amazing beaches. We enjoyed walks to the foreshore and along the spectacular coast walks and amazing sea baths. Libby is also a great host.

Can't fault it and can't wait to go back!

Beautiful property perfectly placed

  • 5 of 5

Papa Sven Summer cabin is exquisite! Libby met me at the house & was so helpful & informative of the house & the surrounding area, nothing was ever a problem.

The house is stunningly clean & furnished with Scandinavian products direct from Libby's store. The area is close to everything you need & need to see in Newcastle. Trendy cafes, shops, restaurants & parks are all within walking distance to the cottage.

I will have no hesitation in staying here again as there is not one negative thing I can think of. It is absolutely brilliant. Thanks Libby!

I had the absolute pleasure of staying here with my 3 gorgeous bridesmaids. This house is an interior design dream, so thoughtfully put together, relaxing and cosy. Libby went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful day getting ready for my wedding, I will be forever grateful for this memory. We can't wait to come back for our one year anniversary!
