    Excellent property

    The cottage was beautifully restored with lots of memorabilia from the past. Kerry, the host, was great at giving us some helpful ideas about of things to do. We had a great time.

    Great cottage

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Perfect location for everything and very tidy. Only downside was that the rooms were warm at night.

    Perfect holiday cottage

    From the warm welcome by Kerry to the thoughtful provision of everything one would need to be comfortable and relaxed, Railway Cottage ticked every box. Perfect location close to the beautiful Estuary and centre of Bunbury, but quiet and surrounded by lovely streets of character houses. A delightful experience.

    En route to Perth from Albany

    This is a beautifully restored property which gives you a feel for the heritage and days gone by, but with the added advantage of modern kitchen and bathroom - perfect! Additionally, It is much more spacious in reality than it seems in the photos. The furniture and artefacts made it very interesting and brought the past to life We were very happy to have had the opportunity to stay here. The house is well equipped, has excellent wi-fi and is in a very quiet area but close to all amenities - again, perfect! We can recommend The Happy Wife Cafe and The Waters Edge Restaurant, both of which are close by. Kerry was very friendly and responded to our queries very promptly. We would stay again if in the area.

    Beautifully renovated and welcoming

    From making the booking through to reception and departure this property and it’s managers’s exceeded all expectations. Beautifully renovated and decorated, this is a large roomy property, well appointed and impeccably clean. Kerry is a wonderful host, willing to go above and beyond but not intrusive. The bed is extremely comfortable, the kitchen has everything one needs. I will certainly be returning to the Railway Cottage.

    Great hidden getaway

    Amazing property to rent in a very quiet and old part of Bunbury, the property is beautiful restored but still has all the midterm requirements to happily house a family. We will defiantly be coming back!

    Memory lane

    My mother and stayed for 3 nights in this delightful cottage. The owner contacted ma and introduced herself soon after booking, and from the start did all she could to ensure lovely stay. The cottage is quirky, beautifully renovated, perfectly clean with really comfortable beds. Everything you need for cooking, washing, etc., TV, books, games, lovely small back garden. Close to town, beaches, shops, great location. Love the tin paneling. We had a great time, will certainly stay again if visiting Bunbury. Thank you
