About Barbara Pruks

Hi, I work in the health profession supporting staff with telecommunications and emergency procedures. I am from a large family and really appreciate the chance to gather everyone together and relax. I grew up in Wollongong and have moved around a bit since then. I loved living in Benalla, it is a very friendly town and great to come back to often.

Barbara Pruks purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Barbara Pruks chose Benalla West

I bought this cottage because I love the location and the proximity to the lake. It means a lot to me to sit on the back porch and listen to the birds singing in the morning. Benalla is such a friendly town and close to so many attractions, including the Lake walk and Winton Raceway.

What makes this cottage unique

I also appreciate the beautiful ceilings and wooden floors this cottage has to offer. It is a lovely character home built in 1951. The rooms are large and the ceilings are high so there is always that feeling of space even when there are large groups in residence. The cottage also caters for Dogs On Holiday

Attractive location, near beautiful walkways

  • 3 of 5

Attractively made-up, comfortable bed and good deep bathtub compensated for lack of information about how to find the place. It lacked the kind, hospitable touches of other Stayz properties we have recently visited. The rear deck had the distinct door of cat urine, and there was no information about heating the place.

Owner's Response: Hi Steve, On consideration of your feedback it would have been best if you had taken up the offer to be met on site rather than manage alone. I am sorry about the smell of cat at the rear of the place and will get on to it immediatly. Thank you for your feedback it is always appreciated Kind regards Barbara

Perfect Winter's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect 2 night winter getaway in this cosy little house. With the wood fire going and the fact that we could have our dog inside cuddled in front of the fire was fantastic. Would definitely recommend this place for a short stay.

Close to Lake

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed where the property was located next to the lake. Unfortunately that also placed it next to the railway line and the trains at night were quite noisy. The property was older but clean and we loved the back porch overlooking the lake.

Owner's Response: Hi Kathie, Thank you for submitting a review for my cottage. I am glad you found the cottage suited your needs. I will add information to my listing regarding proximity to train. It appears every now and then the trains are disruptive it may be the schedule and/or atmospheric conditions. Most guests have no disturbance at all. Kind regards Barbara Pruks Benalla Lakeview Cottage
