Thoroughly enjoyed our recent weekend stay at Picnic Cottage. The house is not luxurious or flashy but extremely comfortable and homely. Very clean and tidy with everything guests would need for their stay. Only stayed for a weekend (2 nights) but it would be ideal for longer stays as well. The house was more spacious than the website photos indicated - plenty of room for 6 adult guests both inside and on the front deck. Air conditioning throughout all rooms was appreciated as well. We took a car over to Maggie but Picnic Cottage is right on the very regular bus route around the island so would be very suitable if you have no vehicle. Definitely good value accommodation and we will hopefully return to Picnic Cottage again. Booking through agent was very smooth as well. Thank you !!

We stayed at Picnic Cottage for 2 nights in May. The cottage was clean, tidy and very well equipped. Kitchen had everything needed to self cater. Enjoyed relaxing on the verandah with visits from Kookaburras every afternoon. Easy walk down to Picnic Bay jetty and pub. Bus stop right out the front.
