What our guests are saying

We had a great time at this property. It’s small but perfectly formed, and we hugely appreciated that all the things we might need were supplied - from matches to beach towels to games. Beds were comfy, I’d definitely stay here again!

What a memorable beautiful stay we had. This was the first Christmas we went away from home, but we felt right at home. I loved that there was a little mini Christmas tree, it was simple and elegant. It made us feel we were still celebrating Christmas. Our first impressions were lasting impressions as we entered. There was a beautiful smell, calming music playing and the air con on. It felt so luxurious! The bathroom was huge and so clean. They had everything! A washing machine and dryer too. Beach towels and snorkels were available. I love to cook and they had absolutely everything you could want in a kitchen! So Christmas cooking was stress free, absolutely everything was available. ( I always pack a garlic crusher though). They had a coffee machine, enough plates and Utensils, baking trays, large pots and pans, everything! The backyard was gorgeous, front deck so lovely and nice. Locations was stunning! I really appreciated all the detailed information that was available too.

We had a lovely 3 night stay at Minerva Cottage. It was super clean and quiet, and had everything you might need. The house is really well appointed and feels very homely, and it was so nice waking up to the water views from the front deck. Walking distance to Orion Beach and an easy drive to many others, as well as Huskisson. Highly recommended!

Had a great stay! Walking distance to the beach and coastal walk. Peaceful surroundings and can see ocean from the terrace and main bedroom.

- Marta, December 2023
We stayed with our 2 children and loved it! Such a great stay - it had absolutely everything we needed plus more. Lots of unique touches (such as muesli, wine and music playing when we arrived) which made it memorable. Thanks for having us! We would love to stay again x

Minerva Cottage truly felt like a home away from home. The space was beautifully designed with thoughtful touches and well equipped with everything we needed. Communication with Rob & Bede was so easy and our hosts responded to queries quickly. The cottage was also a great home base as it was 10mins away from multiple beaches, Booderee National Park, and the town of Huskisson. Highly recommend this spot for your next stay in the area!

- Zakiya, November 2023
The place is fantastic. Super nice and cozy, with several spaces in which you can enjoy during the day and the evening. It is close to the natural environment and has very easy access to amazing beaches. Fully equipped, very clean. The place has everything you need, but it still manages to keep it simple – perfect to relax. The hosts were very nice and helpful, and always answered very fast to all the questions we raised. Can't wait to stay at the cottage again soon!

We couldn’t recommend Rob & Bedes beautiful “Minerva Cottage” highly enough❤️perfect place in every way! Couldn’t fault it, we had a fabulous time in Vincentia and surrounds. Favourite part was walking on the beach with our dog Roy, sunsets were amazing 🌝🌼🌞No doubt we’ll return! Kind regards Peter, Beth & Roy

Great place. We enjoyed some games on the deck overlooking the bay in the afternoon. Would recommend. The dog enjoyed it too!

- Justin, July 2023
Laura and I had an absolutely wonderful stay. The place was so comfortable and well set up. We had beautiful walks and swam in the ocean. Will definitely be back.

- Maximillian, June 2023
We chose this place simply because of its description and it was very accurate . As soon as we walked into the property we felt welcoming atmosphere. Presentation was beyond expectations. We absolutely had a lovely time in this beautiful property at Vincentia. Thank you Rob and Bede for your great hospitality

- Muhandiram, May 2023
Stunning place and most relaxing that you could sit on the spacious veranda and soak in the superb views! We’ll equipped with all you could need for a most enjoyable stay!

- Kate, April 2023
We had a really lovely stay at this property. The whole experience was lovely and really so much more than you expect. There was excellent and detailed information provided before the trip and all about the property and area. The home was located really close to multiple beaches and lovely walking tracks. The property itself was fabulous. There were so many touches that took this from an air bnb home to a lovely vacation home; such as treats and bowls for the dog we said we were bringing, Appelles body products, gowns and slippers. The home had a bit of a scandi feel to it - lots of little luxuries.

- Kes, April 2023
Perfect spot for a weekend getaway from Sydney. The house is so cozy and we really appreciated the little touches. There was music playing on arrival and robes, slippers, and a bottle of wine left for us. It was really easy to cook as the kitchen is well stocked (just bring the food you need) and the BBQ was nice and clean. We also enjoyed the fire pit out back. Highly recommend especially for those traveling with a pup!
