We enjoyed our stay with two little grandchildren. The whole cottage was very cosy and comfortable, with a most delightful breakfast provided.

“A beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Duncan and Irene were lovely hosts who even shared feeding the wild parrots and hand feeding the wild kookaburra with us. They were available at the press of a button, although everything went smoothly and we did not need extra assistance. They laid out varied, delicious breakfast items and cleaned up after we'd left the room each day.

The living area was tastefully furnished and there were four heaters in the property to keep us warm. A cup of tea sitting on the large comfortable chair with my feet up in front of the gas heater was very relaxing.

The cottage is 900m from Upwey shops where we made use of the takeaway pizza, Indian restaurant, early opening bakery with espresso machine and the IGA supermarket.

Upwey is and excellent location to visit Mt Dandenong and surrounds. We also drove to Melbourne CBD easily with GPS navigation and parked for a reasonable price on a Saturday.

There was a fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle but not a full kitchen. The shower is over the bath. We knew it was like this and didn't bother us at all.

Enjoyed a wonderful 3 nights in Rosella Cottage. Very friendly, welcoming and considerate hosts. The cottage was everything we could possibly wish for, beautifully furnished, generous and thoughtful provisions, extremely comfortable. Looking forward to our next stay.
Highly recommend

We had a relaxing stay at Rosella Cottage. It is not often when travelling with three young children that you are made to be feel welcome. Everything we needed was readily available, breakfast provisions were great, and we would definitely stay again.

“Very homely.”
Reviewed 1 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Stayed overnight for a wedding the next day. We were made very welcome and the décor made you immediately want to relax. The little special touches like chocolates in a bowl on the coffee table and tim tam biscuits to go with a cup of tea or coffee were appreciated. The continental breakfast was plentiful and kick started our day. Rosella Cottage was perfect for our needs but for guests staying longer, the absence of a kitchen sink for washing dishes could be awkward. Thankyou for a wonderful stay in your cottage and for accommodating our needs so well!

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope that you had a lovely time at the wedding. I would like to comment regarding the dish washing facilities, we provide an area and tray for dirty dishes and a good supply of spare cutlery, plates, glasses etc. As our guests are on holidays, we do not expect them to do dishes and all dirty dishes are removed each day, the table reset and supplies replenished so this has not been a problem for longer term stays.
