I had a lovely stay. The heater on arrival was a treat.  It's a very lovely cottage and the gardens would be great in Spring. Really enjoyed Pipers and Hollicks. I did the ‘less is more’ for the wineries and found a couple of enjoyable reds. Air’s is really nice - well done. Thanks Jen

Air’s Cottage was just lovely. We had a great stay and the cottage had all we needed. Located in the middle of beautiful Penola. Highly recommended accommodation.

Stayed here for 3 nights and had a brilliant little break. Close to town, just a short stroll up the road. The cottage was just the right size and had everything we needed plus more. It had plenty of outdoor areas where we enjoy the ambience at any time of the day. Enjoyed having so many meals in the outdoor areas whilst enjoying the lovely weather and fantastic back yard.

Oh, it's beautiful.

We absolutely loved our stay. Penola is a gem of a town and we should have stayed for far longer! The house is absolutely beautiful with so much thought and care. Everyone should stay here!

We had a wonderful stay in your delightful home.  you have thought of everything one could need and have created a haven. 

Your garden is lovely, full of birds and atmosphere.  We can't wait to return.

We've had a tremendous time in Penola visiting wineries and walking the winery trail.  Air's Cottage is cosy and very comfortable and something I hope many more will experience.
