“Fabulous home away from home at an incredible price”
Reviewed October 3, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

What a find Wyndham Cottage was for my husband and I. Beautifully kept, a great yard, all the amenities we could need, private but close to shops and the tram, and a very comfortable stay. Andrew was a pleasure to deal with and everything was smooth and easy on the booking and details side. We had a few wonderful dinners at Derby Thai on Grey street and the Woolworth's just down the street had everything we needed for breakfasts and lunches. The nearby St. Kilda gardens is a gem, and the St Kilda esplanade is only a 10-15 minute stroll. I hope we can return again someday to Wyndham Cottage and enjoy another retreat at our hidden retreat,

“Cute and quiet cottage”
Reviewed September 11, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This cottage is exactly as advertised and super cute, clean and quiet. We were only there for a couple of nights but wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy the lovely courtyard, make dinner, and relax. Within walking distance of some great breakfast and lunch spots, and late night places if you're into that. Close to the St. Kilda pier and beach. The cottage provides pretty much everything you need and being able to do some laundry was a real perk after being in Melbourne for a week already. The king sized bed was very comfortable (always a gamble!), and the sitting room was a great spot for some tea or coffee before running around or relaxing after a full day. Andrew was wonderful - keeping in touch, providing lots of helpful information, and making sure our needs were attended to. If we're ever lucky enough to be back in Melbourne, we'll definitely be hoping the Wyndham Cottage is available!

“Mr”
Reviewed August 19, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I stayed here for 5 nights in July.

This is a one bedroom cottage with a sofa bed situated at the back of what is now a block of apartments. It is secured by a secure gate and the unit has a lovely courtyard.

I was after a place not in but close to the heart of Melbourne and close to St Kikda beach. This fit the bill. And if you haven't been to Melbourne it has fantastic public transport. There are 2 nearby trams.

The place was very nice inside and had all of the facilities you would expect. It also has a nice courtyard with a BBQ (which unfortunately I didn't get to use).

This is a lovely place but what really tops off is a great host in Andrew. He not only keeps a great place but he made the whole trip very comfortable, with great directions, tips, supplying Myki cards and dealing with queries. Would definitely come back.

“Wonderful Cosy hideaway”
Reviewed June 16, 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.

“Secret Garden Sactuary”
Reviewed May 19, 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.
