Hubby and I were upgraded to the separate cottage to our delight. We realised afterward that the owners were going away and so we had the place to ourselves. It was just simply lovely. I had visions of writing a story to set the mood for my review but you know how time gets away. All I can say is we wish we had stayed longer and we WILL seek Whistle-Stopover out again when we head down to Victoria again.
The property is situated alongside the famous Puffing Billy Railway line but don't let this dishearten you. The train does not impinge on the serenity and peace in any way. As it runs only a couple of times a day it adds to the character. My husband is a train spotter anyway (ssshhhhh don't let on that you know)
The cottage is very well kept and is spotless. There is both gas heating and air conditioning. The kitchen is fully kitted out and as far as breakfast is concerned there is plenty. there are three bedrooms, one bath room, lounge and dining. There is even a bbq out on the back deck.
I am embarrassed to admit that I cannot recall the hostess's name however can I say, I left my heat pack behind (Sad looking thing that it was) and the hostess smsd to let us know! She even offered to mail it home! How often have you had this experience? Usually one can say goodbye to that item.
We met someone who had satyed in one of the rooms within the house and they loved it as well, so basically, you cannot go wrong :)
