We really enjoyed our stay.  It was cosy and quiet.  The only problem we had was that we forgot to book good weather as well.  We will definitely be back.

All as advertised. Perfect for quiet relaxation.

Really enjoyed sitting on the deck whilst my husband was sailing in the Rat Regatta at Clayton Bay Boat Club. Lovely being close to the water.


March 2019

Picturesque and tranquil cottage right on the river

Di's cottage was exactly as it looks in the listing. It is clean and cosy and is equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. It's in a great location, not far from the town centre, and a short drive to other surrounding and larger towns. Being right on the water front made it easy for us to launch our kayaks off from the small private beach. We absolutely loved our stay, our highlights were the beautiful sunsets, being right on the water, having a great record collection and an excellent BBQ!! We will certainly be back!! Thanks Di :)

"Sunset" describes this cottage beautifully, not only are the sunsets beautiful but the lake view is perfect. The location is so peaceful and the best place to stay if you are looking for somewhere to sit back and relax.


April 2018

Awesome little hideaway, tucked away from the busy city life. House is setup excellently with all you need but your food supplies. Will definitely be revisiting on a regular basis. Loved every minute of our stay.

November 2017

The waterside escape we had hoped for - exceeded our expectations.


September 2017

Sunset cottage is a lovely place to spend time: beautifully situated, charmingly decorated, comfortable and well equipped. We particularly relished both its relationship to the lagoon and the quiet and seclusion it afforded.

Fourth visit to Sunset cottage for a mini serenity fix. Thank you Di for the beautiful amenities and late check out was so appreciated.


April 2017

Beautiful place to stay, very relaxing. Will definitely be back again!!! Thank you so much for sharing your property with us.


February 2017

We loved our stay overlooking the water, very quiet and peaceful. Cottage was cute and everything you could possible need was there. Di the owner was easy to liaise with and even gave us a late checkout which was nice of her. Overall a great experience and would stay again.


October 2016

.....our second visit in 4 months and was as fabulous as before. Incredible sunsets, beautiful, un-rivalled setting, exquisite birdlife ....utter tranquility. This is a place where you can simply recharge your batteries from the grind of daily life and "be". we love it and will be back.


June 2016

There are few superlatives that adequately describe just how beautiful Sunset Cottage is.

Beautiful pieces of furniture, immaculately clean, every little detail thought of - fabulously-equipped kitchen, an outdoor teppanyaki grill we fell in love with, a vinyl collection that added to the ambience perfectly, great indoor heater….the list is simply endless.

The show stopper of course is the setting. Step out onto a great outdoor entertaining area with a million buck, uninterrupted views of the bay. Constantly changing vista with the weather - bird life galore - absolute perfection after a hectic work week.

Sunset Cottage felt like a "home from home"…we were there in Winter and it was stunning weather - however had it been raining - we wouldn't have cared. Goolwa an easy 15-20 minute drive away, vineyards within easy reach, Sails Cafe in Clayton serving excellent breakfasts (v good value for money)…..and a seamless experience booking with Di.

We were discussing dates for the next visit/s before we had even left - it was THAT good and looking forward to our next visit.


March 2016

A thoroughly enjoyable place to stay. Excellent waterside location in a quiet little holiday town. The owners have set the place up very well with virtually nothing left wanting. Close to some excellent wineries and the South coast tourist areas.

"The cottage is lovely; the views stunning- wonderful at sunset and wonderful in the rain. The lake changes with the weather and light and is a photographer's delight- with the many varieties of bird life,including pelicans and black swans. The cottage has everything that you need other than food and clothes and is great value for money."

December 2006

"Beautiful location. Very peaceful and relaxing stay. Great value and would recommend to all!"


November 2006

"Wonderful location, true to description, right on the waterfront with great views, fishing off the jetty, pelicans, sunset etc. The home was very well presented and equipped. Would definitely go back again, but not suitable for young children because the water is literally just out the front door. Can't wait to get back there! Very efficiently done!"

"We loved our stay, it was just what we needed. That little space is paradise - wish could we have stayed longer ........ thank you Trish and Sonja"
