Type of Accommodation - Self Contained Unit/Cottage
Details - The property is dog friendly in the sense of dogs being allowed inside. The cottage is basic, and old fashioned in terms of facilities (eg ancient shower that is over an equally ancient bath; no iron, no hair dryer, old taps etc). If you find a bit of dust and grime on utensils and tap handles that fall off charming you'll like the bathroom and kitchen. While a laundry is provided, the sink was stacked full of someone's belongings so couldn't be used.
The yard is not secure: The fences are low in places, and a fairly low old wire netting gate to the road so not safe for any large dog that may jump, also gaps under the fence in places so not safe for small dogs.
The section is shared with the residents of second dwelling on the same section that is only a couple of metres away from the cottage - this is inhabited by the owner and her dogs or rented out. There is only a single driveway for both dwellings. This means that people (and dogs) are wandering close to the cottage, and the gate out to the busy road is potentially opened unexpectedly.
This property will work best for a group hiring both dwellings, or someone who isn't looking for privacy and doesn't need to let dogs free in the yard.
However, take note that the owner seems to be rather eccentric and lacking in common sense about what a renter should or shouldn't be entitled to. You can't rely on having received relevant information. She also does some unexpected things, eg during our stay she parked a ute with goats on the front lawn just a couple of metres from the cottage / our bedroom, and of course right where we had expected to be able to exercise our dogs.
Rating - (Out of a possible 5 ... 5 being excellent)
