Seva Cottage is completed self-contained on its own property and is fully fenced. There is ample off-street parking down a gated private drive. Important Note: The driveway and gate are narrow and the driveway is long, as Seva Cottage is on a back section. We have had many large work vehicles down the driveway, however, if you are not used maneuvering your vehicle in narrow spaces, or are driving a large travel vehicle, you may not be comfortable parking down the drive. We have recently doubled the size of the area for turning, however some may still find it a tight turn, especially if your vehicle is large. There is parking on the road if you do not feel to park in the driveway. You will want to consider whether you are happy with all of this before you request a booking. The cottage is equipped with an electric oven and stove top, microwave, fridge/freezer, a small library and games collection, CD player/DVD and TV (for playing DVDs only), and a washing machine.

Wonderful family-friendly homely stay
A fantastic location close to cafe, shops, parks, public swimming pool and beautiful nature walks. A clean and tidy family friendly home in a peaceful location off the street. A lovely garden and fully fenced yard to relax in. Owners are nearby if needed and made us feel so welcome. We have been back several times and will stay again!

Seva Cottage goes the extra mile
For a short or long stay Seva cottage has everything you need for a comfortable and thoroughly enjoyable stay. It's quiet being well back from the road in a garden setting. The location is handy to the city and airport. I have stayed several times and wouldn't consider looking elsewhere. A real home away from home it is spacious, clean, warm in winter and has a very well equipped kitchen. There are shops within 2 minutes walk. Christina and Paul are very friendly and efficient owners. Their attention to detail really gives Seva Cottage that extra something.
