In a highly desirable location just a couple of minutes walk from the main shops Jacaranda Cottage is a large stone 2 bedroom cottage on a corner block with plenty of off street parking. Built in the early 1910’s this stone home has all the modern comforts any family or group of friends might require.
We often find that workers staying in the town for a week or more will share the cottage. This makes a great home away from home for a similar cost of 2 single hotel rooms.
As the name suggests there are 2 young Jacaranda trees outside the front of cottage. It is anticipated that these trees will provide additional shade during summer.
Jacaranda Cottage was bought by us as a renovators delight. With white ants, leaking roof, no kitchen floor to speak of and major cracking throughout we worked tirelessly for 2 years to repair and restore this character filled stone cottage before turning it into a B&B. The desire to save a beautiful building and share it with others is what drove us to commit their time and energy.
Included in our normal rate are provisions for a full cooked breakfast for the first night with tea and coffee provisions for the whole stay. As a guide, breakfast provisions include orange juice, bacon, eggs, bread for toast, baked beans or spaghetti, mushrooms and tomatoes as well as a small selection of cereals and jams.
All linen including quilts and towels are supplied for the full stay. Linen will be changed each three nights. If you have a need for fresh linen sooner then please do not hesitate to contact the Rhona and Allan.
There are a variety of pillows to suit different comfort levels and electric blankets are provided in winter.
