Given how lovely this place was, Left a note for Sarah re toaster not working, my inability to work the pod machine and the cobwebs on the lights. The failed toaster meant I couldn't make myself breakfast and I couldn't do coffee. Early start and another 7 hrs solo driving. I was pissed off and said so. With clients coming in for the weekend I thought with early notification all could be fixed. Sarah's response was to threaten me with a bad review and airbnb was not for me. After advice from airbnb I'm giving my side.

Fantastic stay in Port Fairy! Beautiful, light-filled kitchen, and very accurate to the photos. The fireplace was very welcome on a chilly Autumn morning! Would happily stay here again.

Sarah's place was really charming! A gorgeous country cottage, divided into 3 separate areas for guests. It was in a great location near the town centre. Unfortunately there was no wifi, and data is pretty poor in this area. Although you have your own area, you are also very close to other guests (depends if you like interaction with other people!). Overall, a lovely place to stay. Gorgeous fireplace in the cold, and a great cottage feel to it. Thank you Sarah!

Great location as the place is located within 2 mins walk to the small town. Very lovely rustic charm to this house and the fireplace is a nice touch. No wifi, poor reception within the house is good for social media detox. Do note that basic amenity such as a hair dryer is not included. Bring your own!!!

Sarah's place is a cute little nook which is a section of a larger property. It's on the doorstep of everything in town and very comfortable. Our only regret is we couldn't stay longer! Thanks for having us!

What a quant cottage, so roomy and the gas fire place was so warm and cosy. I loved the coffee machine that had chai latte as well as coffee pods. We could walk into town so easy, if we ever come back to port fairy we will definitely stay at Sarah's place
