The house is privately owned and managed by Keith and Kris Whiting, who purchased the house in 1990 as a family home. At that time the house was an original holiday shack - many of those can still be seen in the area and are indeed still leased as holiday escapes. Keith commented, "We fell in love with the original cottage, land and location but a one bedroom cottage simply wasn't big enough for our growing family".
Over the years the house has been developed into a stunning holiday home with the same quaint frontage and holiday cottage atmosphere, now hosting three bathrooms, four bedrooms and a whopping three outside entertainment verandas. The house is able to host a family of ten people.
Visitors to this home will be surprised by the private courtyard and rear entertainment areas, furnished in a Balinese theme with mature gardens and water features. The BBQ has been developed into an outside kitchen which is suitable for all weather use.
And here is the best bit - Keith and Kris have offered all guests who mention this article on Weekend Notes when they book, which can be done on the Lavender Cottage website, a holiday booking discount of 5% off the overall tariff for the months of May to August. Simply mention Weekend Notes when you book to claim your discount. Booking details can also be found on the Holiday Homes website.
