Quiet, quirky, olde worldly charm and friendly
Chet - the owner, the room the garden and surrounds
The stay at Designer Cottages is a great experience. The whole complex is individual and special with each cottage totally different but very thoughtfully and tastefully decorated.Our room was very comfortable and beautifully furnished. Chet is friendly and charming. He makes each guest feel very welcome and safe. The breakfast is a must as apart from having a great start to the day it is an opportunity to meet other travellers and enjoy Chet's fascinating company. We would highly recommend staying at Designer Cottages.

helpful information and Considerate service
Considerate service
The host Chet is very nice gay, very friendly.He gave to each guest lots of travel information which can help you a lot. Also, if you are chinese speaker, you can communicate in Chinese. If you could like to see what do local people live, this is a good option.

Home away home
very homely
Very good kitchen facility. The owner of the cottage gave a very good service and told us how to go about to visit place of interests. Always smile and very friendly for discussion. Good place to make friends with other housemates.

House/Cottage converted into a "shared" hotel
Nice cottage
The room we were put into was nice but there were a few things which we were not made aware of while doing the booking - - The room (upstairs) did not have an attached bathroom/toilet and it was a hassle to go downstairs and use one every time. The bathroom/toilet was a shared one next to the dinning area - Wasn't happy with the b'fast. The bread had some fungus build up - Was difficult to get hold of the care taker (could not connect to the wifi) We only had to spend a night and therefore did not bother much but it is advisable to check on the details beforehand.
