“Everything you could want”
Reviewed April 9, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Fantastic location close to a wonderful shopping district with restaurants, book shops and vintage clothing stores along with a multitude of other shops. There are bus stops and a train station just around the corner, and a beautiful big park just across the road. The house is very well appointed with anything you might need, from cooking oil and vegemite, to mountains of CDs to suit all tastes. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom is fresh and modern and the property is quiet at night. It's a little pricey, but worth every penny.

“Great location for a family holiday in Sydney.”

This property was in very convenient location in a vibrant area. It only took a short walk to get to the train station and there are numerous eateries nearby. The accommodation itself was very comfortable for a family with young children. Robyn was very accommodating and easy to deal with, responding to our enquiries very promptly. Thanks Robyn for contributing to a wonderful family holiday!

“Marvellous place, marvellous location, new insights to Sydney!!”

This holiday opened new adventures and treasures for us.
The cottage was very comfortable and well set up.
The location proved a bonus with Newtown and Enmore (easy walking distances) holding some of Sydney's best kept secrets and this cottage is in just the best location to experience those secrets.
It is also so close to transport that one can park and leave for a week yet get anywhere in Sydney easily.
We had our little dog with us and the dog friendly park across the road made it a magical experience for her and us with her. Just fantastic.
Terrific experience.

Really lovely cottage.

My husband and I along with my daughter and her partner, spent a lovely few days at Newtown Cottage. Super comfortable bed and modern furnishings. Great character and spotless throughout. Surprisingly quiet for such a great location, close to cafes, restaurants, pubs and shops. Loved it!
