                                        Charlie Bates Cottage - Testimonials

Charlie Bates Cottage is a very comfortable and unique stay. The cottage is very comfortable and spoiling in spite of its age. The kitchen has all you may need, the bathroom is wide and the towels and linen clean and fresh. We loved the fact that the owners kept the touch of history in the house (the historic correspondence on the kitchen cupboard and the photos and pieces in the living room). We would love to visit again in the future.

Dear John and Nadia

You have done a beautiful job with decorating this charming cottage. The highlight of our stay has been the wallabies who congregate on the front lawn every evening. We have been feeding them a whole bag of apples each night – our record is 13 wallabies at a time! A beautiful experience for the children, and the adults were captivated too!

Hi Nadia,
We had a great time, your place was perfect and the kids had a ball, we actually got 23 wallabies one night, and got most of it on video camera for memories. 
Thanks for the rental and thanks for the portacot, it was a god send.

Hi Nadia,
thank you for the cheque which we received when we got home from S.A.  Thank you also for sharing Charlie Bates..  We loved the cottage ... so quaint, stylish and clean... Absolutely lovely.. we have talked to our kids about going to K.I. as we loved it so much and already Neville is talking about staying at Charlie for a week or so next time and actually using the fishing rods you so generously provided.  Thanks again... Kind regards,

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All the facilities at the cottage worked well. Nice to stay in an old cottage with a distinctive atmosphere. Especially enjoyed sitting out with the wallabies in the evening while they grazed the lawn. Convenient for the ferry to Cape Jervis, and beautiful beach at Hog Bay seen from cottage window.

We had a wonderful time here. The house is absolutely gorgeous and very well equipped with everything you could think of, the spacious rooms and the fireplace in the lounge make it a truly magical cottage

"I would highly recommend a visit to Charlie Bates Cottage and Penneshaw. We had the most marvellous time, despite horrible weather. What a wonderful surprise to arrive and find we had booked into a well-equipped, attractive and comfortable home. Half the provisions that we had packed weren't even required. Thank you Charlie Bates for being superb hosts - you set a high standard"
