If you’re looking for a break where all the details are taken care of, and including for your pooches - Banksia is it! Ange & Jeff, take care of everything. The house was immaculate and their attention to detail is just WOW. We arrived to find even the dog bowls were ready with fresh water. Firewood chopped. Fresh herbs and lemons in the kitchen for our use. Tim Tams to enjoy with a choice of coffee and let’s not forget the dog biscuits. Beds are super comfy and all linens crisp and clean. Access to Wifi, Netflix (TV’s in the lounge and both bedrooms). Great shower pressure. Our favourite was drinks on the porch. So pack your clothes, add food and drinks, and book your stay. An awesome place to unwind and chillax…
We loved our stay here with our dog! The property was very clean, well maintained, safe for little dogs, and ooozed charm with history all around! The record and DVD collection gave several happy hours to Us Baby Boomers! Very highly recommended indeed!
Within an hour of arriving for my first visit to Banksia Cottage I was online looking for availability over the Christmas/NY period. It was love at first sight for me. Banksia Cottage is outstanding in every aspect. Cleanliness throughout the home and the gardens was very impressive. The gardens are pure delight with several spaces to sit with a coffee or wine while my dog played with the kong and relaxed on the lawn. Safety is well attended to. The home is very comfortable, fully fitted out with delightful treats, gorgeous furniture. I'm looking forward to my 3rd visit during the colder months so that we can also enjoy the fireplace. Highly recommended. Don't hesitate to book this beautiful property for your next getaway to Toowoomba.
It is evident from the very high standard of presentation, amenities, and "personal touch" inclusions, that the hosts are passionate about providing an exceptionally unique and enjoyable stay for their guests. The Cottage and it's glorious garden, exude a very positive and relaxing energy, enveloping one by its charm and tranquility. The "fur" members of our family (two Chihuahuas) were equally well catered for, and enjoyed exploring all the nooks and crannies of such a safe, secure and private garden. Congratulations on exceeding all our expectations and making us feel so pampered and special. We will definitely be returning to stay at this rare gem.
Stayed five nights in this beautifully restored, pet friendly 2 bedroom period cottage which was within reasonable walking distance to the CBD and parks, but also on the bus route. Quite a few little welcoming touches were much appreciated. A delightful little cottage garden with seating nooks backed into a large park just around the corner. Towels were even provided for wiping grubby paws. Very comfortable large bed with crisp sheets, towels were big and fluffy, the full sized fridge and gas stove were very handy in the kitchen and there were heaps of DVDs from which to choose if you didn’t want to watch what the Smart TV offered. Plenty of room, with separate dining room (with wood heater) and comfy lounge room. Would like to return, perhaps for the next Carnival of Flowers, would highly recommend.…
Banksia Cottage is a little gem. The hosts have cleverly managed to incorporate the old and new in such a way as to retain the charm of the original cottage, while offering all the required comforts and modern touches. It is rare indeed to stay in a holiday home and not find that something or other is missing, be it decent wifi, a selection of bedding, kitchen foil or cooking utensils. Banksia had it all though, plus a few unexpected extras. Check-in was simple, as was check-out. Despite the evenings being chilly (winter) the heating was really good. The lovely woodburner was even made-up for us, ready to be lit. Much appreciated, and we will be back! :-)
A lovely cottage located just streets away from the heart of Toowoomba. The perfect distance away from the hustle and bustle but so close you can walk to Ruthven street. So many choices of shops , great cafe's and restaurant's. We couldn't have wanted for more from a house that feels like home. Not many places have very comfortable beds with electric blankets and luxurious sheets. My kind of accommodation. Not to mention a full kitchen with oven and gas cooktop and good hot water. I could go on and on but put simply , we will be back. Thanks Ange and Jeff for sharing your lovely home with us.
Banksia Cottage is so good with everything (and more) than you could need. It was a wonderful feel, cosy fire and beautiful garden that our little Cavoodle enjoyed. We had such a wonderful time there and would highly recommend a stay.
We loved our Easter visit to Banksia Cottage. It was a lovely place to spend a few days...including some time in front of the fire on a cool and wet weekend! The home had everything we needed, and the garden is beautiful. The location is great - we walked into the centre of town a few times, and there are some great streets to explore nearby. Our dog enjoyed every minute too...she felt right at home! Our hosts Ange & Jeff were easy to deal with and always responsive. We'd happily visit again, and would certainly recommend Banksia Cottage.
Banksia cottage is the most beautiful heritage haven that has everything you need for a relaxing break. Lots of really special touches that show how much Ange and Jeff care about making your visit a memorable one - just read the guest book when you get there and check out all of the glowing reports! We particularly loved that we could have our dog with us and that it was cool enough to light the fire. Wonderful hosts!
