My partner and I stayed in Billie Cottage for the weekend and couldn't have had a better stay. The scenery is gorgeous and peaceful. You can look out all the windows of the cottages and see Wouter's beautiful land. The cottage itself is modern, with a kitchen, big bathroom, comfy bed, TV and living area, etc. You will also have a private backyard area with a table and chairs so you can look out onto the winery. Wouter is very friendly as well as his dog Billie. He is a no-fuss host and very helpful.
This was one of our best airbnb stays to date- the location is stunning; so peaceful out amongst the vineyard and the Australian bush. It is a photographer's dream! Lots of birds throughout the grounds and spectacular sunsets from the verandah. Wouter was very friendly and welcoming- I hope that we get to meet again! We actually stayed in Nina Cottage which is a replica of Billie. The cottage is super clean and really beautifully appointed with a mix of modern and retro finishes. Great touches like recycled sash windows and modern sliding doors across the bedroom. There's also a small private terrace around the side that is perfect to sit in and linger over breakfast. The kitchen has everything you need to self cater. Breakfast provisions were lovely. The cottage also has a huge bathroom with toiletries provided. We just loved it- thanks Wouter!!
Upon arrival we loved the discovery of eggs, bread, milk, butter, jam and beans for our breakfast the next morning, yummo! The cottage had what we needed and was clean, from previous reviews we came with enough snacks and books to chill out and relax for 3 nights. (no dvd player) Our dog loved swimming in 2 dams and we enjoyed immersion into nature and walking around the property. We have found our new getaway!
We had a lovely stay here over the Easter long weekend. The house is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for our stay. We really enjoyed the simple breakfast placed in the fridge for us to cook in the morning - the fresh sour dough bread was amazing! This is a very relaxing place for those who want to break away from the city for a couple of days. Would highly recommend!
ZoeHad a great 3 night holiday at Nina cottage on Hotham ridge winery. The house was immaculate, had everything we needed and we loved the decor. Settled in quickly thanks to the homely feel of it, and our dog had a great time wandering the grounds and playing with the farm dog Billie. She was so friendly and welcomed us on arrival. We'll definitely be back.
Wouter was very quick to reply to my questions about our stay. When we arrived he was friendly and helpful and provided us with a chance to taste the lovely wines! We were only staying for a one night stopover on our way further south but it was a lovely location. The flat was fairly basic but the bedrooms were spacious and the air-con did a good job of cooling the flat down before we went to bed.
We were welcomed on arrival by Wouter and shown around the property. Our modern and tastefully decorated accommodation was a short walk from the restaurant and cellar door. After a few peaceful hours relaxing playing scrabble on the cottage's private veranda we joined another couple in the restaurant for dinner where Wouter and his partner were terrific hosts. We left early the next morning to catch up with some friends, but will definitely be back. Recommend 100%.
Billie cottage is divine. Beautifully appointed & located in a gorgeous country setting amongst gardens, superb natural bush & vineyards. Wouter is the perfect host providing all the trimmings with lovely fresh eggs for breakfast & dinner available as well. Not to mention delightful wine from the cellar door. Thoroughly recommend Wouters for a stay.
When you travel in country WA you usually need to drop your expectations of food and accommodation - not here! The beautiful cottage was tastefully and thoughtfully fitted out with great attention to detail. The wine was lovely and the food was sensational. Then there are the amazing views with beautiful sunsets and the fact that Hotham Ridge is so close to Perth. Fantastic all round - best place we have ever stayed in WA and one of the best we've been in the world! Great value for money and heaps of character. Hope we can come back again soon!
Wouter's Nina Cottage was an absolute pleasure. We stayed for three nights and it was not long enough. The cottages felt as though you go on holiday while feeling comfortable whilst at home. Everything you need in a spacious well designed and well lighted abode. Wouter's knowledge and conversation of wine, food and living a sustainable existence reminds the joy of experiencing new people and places. The isolated area speaks for itself! Simply a Perfect winter getaway....
What wonderful hosts and even the dog Billie made us feel welcome. We enjoyed some tasty home-cooked meals and sampled some of their wines. Liked it so much we bought a case to take home with us. Add the fresh air, beautiful scenery and a great cottage to relax in and you get a result that we will be back for more.
