Magnolia Cottage, a quiet and comfortable 2-bedroom free standing home, with high ceilings, wide baltic pine floorboards, fast wifi, and off street parking, is ready for your visit. Located in a peaceful heritage area opposite a kid friendly park in Canberra's inner north city, it has a large secure pet-friendly garden, with lawns, herbs, and shady trees, and space for car and caravan parking.
This cute 1927 heritage-listed cottage is in large established gardens in a heritage precinct. Corroborree Park opposite has electric bbqs, play equipment, basketball and tennis courts. It's a short walk to Mount Ainslie with its resident kangaroos and Canberra bush. The cottage is only a 15 minute walk to the city centre and the trendy Braddon district!
Easy to find, plenty of parking, and great roads to all the iconic attractions, Magnolia Cottage is a fantastic and convenient place to call home while in Canberra.

Guests have access to the whole house and gardens, including use of the gas bbq in the back garden (you find it as it was left - please be considerate of my next guests!).
House keys are in a key safe on site so you can arrive at any time. I provide the code and access details 1-2 weeks prior to your stay.
Interaktion mit Gästen
Happy to make suggestions of places to eat or attractions to visit, I'm only a phone call away, but prefer to leave you in peace to enjoy your stay.
I maintain the (organic) gardens most Saturday mornings, and guests - especially the kids, are welcome to join me planting, harvesting, weeding, pruning and mowing!

I love living in close proximity to Canberra, the bush capital - it's a fabulous livable city. I enjoy reading, gardening, bird watching, snorkelling, camping and being outdoors.
Having undertaken lots of diy on Magnolia Cottage (new bathroom, insulating and resheeting the walls, internal painting) I am now, between guests, work, and the weather, converting the cottage's garden to fruit and veggies based on permaculture design principles to share with guests, and continuing with some outside house maintenance.
I live on a 'bush' block just outside Canberra with family and chickens doing lots of environmental weeding and tree planting revegetation work, and enjoying watching the wild life. I am also a volunteer firefighter and am currently learning to drive the fire trucks.
