“Wonderful Cosy hideaway”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed at Wyndham Cottage for a week at the end of May. It was our second trip to Melbourne to visit relatives so we were pretty clued up on where to go and what to see but if we hadn't been we could certainly have relied on Andrew who was fantastic with his hospitality and his assistance. The cottage is gorgeous and is hidden away behind a larger apartment building making it very private and a perfect hideaway. Everything you may need is provided by Andrew, with one exception! It was pretty cold during our stay and an electric blanket would have just put the icing on the cake. Something to consider Andrew? The large bed was extremely comfortable as was the sofa in the living room. The TV had an excellent reception and Wifi was good. What more can you ask for?
I agree with all of the other positive reviews on TripAdvisor and did not find fault with anything.
There were fresh flowers and chocolates provided for us along with milk and biscuits - a lovely personal and welcoming touch. I loved the Art Deco aspects in the cottage - the glass in the doors and the ceiling fixtures. The bathroom is rather dated - avocado suite - but like everywhere else in the cottage was spotlessly clean. The laundry facility was very useful enabling us to do our washing before we left.
My only disappointment was that the weather was wet and rainy and I never did get the chance to sit in Andrew's lovely garden or ”fire up the barbi." Maybe next time.
A final point is that our deposit was returned immediately on our return home as promised.
I would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a "bolt hole" away from the traffic and rush of Melbourne. Thank you Andrew for your hospitality.

“Perfect for a short break”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Small cottage perfect for a short break - literally home from home. Everything you could possibly want or need were provided and Andrew was always available by email.

“Secret Garden Sactuary”
Reviewed 20 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

After a long day's drive sightseeing I was met by Andrew who walked me to the front gate and walked me through this hidden gem.

I found myself smiling as I walked through the cottage, feeling more and more at home. It's such a relaxing and quiet space, I found it hard to leave. I loved the little touches - fresh flowers, chocolates, transport card (Myki) , even fresh fruit in the bowl!

It's much quieter than I expected so perfect for me. Would be great for families or small groups of friends.

I stayed for 4 days and wasn't in any hurry to leave- I'll be back to this lovely little home away from home next trip to Melbourne.

The pictures you see are accurate! Normally you see something dressed for show on the websites, but Wyndham Cottage looks just like the photos! It's a beautiful, welcoming, serene hideaway just minutes from everything.

Transport is close by, for visits to the city or local attractions of St Kilda.

“Lovely, peaceful, hidden cottage”
Reviewed 18 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

My wife, one other couple and I stayed at Andrew's little gem in St. Kilda and had a great time in Melbourne. The place had everything we needed for a vacation rental. Very close to public transport, groceries, restaurants, etc., and within easy reach of major Melbourne attractions. Andrew picked us up at MEL upon arrival, gave us many useful tips for enjoying the city. Our host even arranged our trip back to the airport on our way back to the USA. Andrew was an excellent host that I had to tell him, "I will come back and stay here when I come watch tennis at the Australian Open!"

Andrew made sure no details was missed. We were there for Easter and he had candy and chocolate bunnies for us! The cottage smells wonderful too! Just the right place for a getaway for two!
