Magical stay in the heart of Rye! Location, decor, garden and surrounds was artfully curated and magical. It was like staying in a cottage straight out of a fairytale. Landscaping was beautifully maintained and loved every little detail. Our host was lovely and accommodating with amazing suggestions and warm hospitality. Reana, Melbourne, 8 Apr 2021

Magical fairytale stay for us. Loved every single detail inside and outside of this cottage. No words can describe how beautiful and peaceful these days have been. Thank you once again...we will be back soon. "We will remember this place all of our lives" Leo & Christina, Melbourne, 17 Mar 2021

Fabulous, quirky, super clean and tres French! We loved the black and cream decor and the thick, fluffy, soft towels. Bernadette has spun some magic to provide a lucky few everything you might associate with a cute, country cottage in France. Gorgeous, highly recommend a stay. Barbara & Alan, Geelong, 10 Feb 2021

The chalet is absolutely beautiful. Exactly as I imagined from the photos. We didn't get to use the outside facilities, such as the firepit, due to unfortunate weather, but it was as beautiful outside as it was inside and the storm only added to the charm. The location is ideal. Not far from the beach and main shopping areas, but well away from the touristy hustle. I would 100% recommend a stay at Silverleaf Cottage. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Brian & Donna, Melbourne, 6 Feb 2021

The Silverleaf Cottage is so cute and we are very impressed. It's a really cool theme and it is definitely a more fun and interesting experience than usual getaways. We were supposed to visit in April 2020 but all hell broke loose so we're glad we were able to make it now. We had a wonderful time. Zaki & Mette, Melbourne, 10 Jan 2021

Silverleaf Cottage is the perfect getaway for couples. It was thoroughly relaxing and just what we needed for recharging the batteries. The sounds of the birds in the mornings was just divine, and set the tone for the day. Thank you for your hospitality Bernadette. John and I had such a lovely stay at your gorgeous cottage. You have thought of absolutely everything to make everyone's experience top class. Thanks again. John & Cheryl, Victoria, 7 Jan 2021

Beautiful romantic retreat. We really enjoyed it...the garden was absolutely enchanting, the loft bed was very comfortable, the interior design was quirky and the entire place was absolutely spotless. We were very grateful for the thoughtful inclusions of breakfast supplies and the really comfortable bathrobes. Would highly recommend. Ilya, Melbourne, 16 Nov 2020

What a beautiful cottage. Every little thing has been thought of. Love the decor. Beautiful garden. So peaceful and private. Perfect getaway. Very comfortable. Thank you. Lauren & Adam, Melbourne, 21 Jun 2020

Such a beautiful place to stay at! Thank you for helping us make our Valentine's weekend away so magical! From the gardens to the decor, everything was set out perfectly. We are definitely recommending this place to all of our friends. Zoe & Nina, Melbourne, 16 Feb 2020

Words does no justice to this amazing artisanal french chateau! The place is exactly as it is in pictures and in some cases I would argue that the place looks much better than the photos. Every detail from the bookcase at the top to the towels in the bathroom, cosy space for wine or a morning tea outside, to the entrance with flowers screams fancy!!! We were sad to checkout so soon as we stayed only one night, looking forward to a longer trip soon. Thanks to Bernadette for being such a well maintained and authentic place! Arvind, Melbourne, 8 Feb 2020

Thank you for creating such a wonderful place! Beautifully presented and appointed in a lovely private setting. We totally enjoyed our 2 night stay and would recommend to friends for a visit. Jason & Sharon, Melbourne, 13 Jan 2020

What a beautiful cottage you have created! We loved every minute of our stay in this peaceful little oasis away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Thank you so much for the care and attention you put into the cottage and surrounds. Anthony & Janelle, Melbourne, 6 Jan 2020

If you want an opulent place for a beautiful weekend away with a special person...here it is ! We had the most relaxing stay and plenty to see and do...the hot springs are so close...romantic is definitely the words to describe Bernadette's place...there was nothing to fault in this high end accommodation...so many details such as scrumptious fluffy robes and towels, and beautiful dinnerware. This property is highly recommended for that special time with a loved one...so enjoyed coming back to relax in the evenings...the opulent touches are divine, we spent quite a bit of time looking at the details ...stunning and loved it. Glenda, Ballarat, 26 Dec 2019

We loved this place. Everything about it is perfect. You have done an amazing job and I could live in it. Thank you for a lovely stay. We will be back. Keep the magic going. x Ali & Lyndan, Melbourne, 7 Dec 2019

Love this beautiful hideaway. The atmosphere and decor creates such a magical place. We had a wonderful overnight stay and enjoyed the serenity (kid free!) Will definitely come back to this special place ...The cottage was a magical hidden gem. Rochelle & Alan Melbourne, 24 Nov 2019

What a charming little space! Everything was so thoughtfully put together. Both the inside and outside are just picture perfect and the facilities didn't disappoint either! Thank you so much. Couldn't have asked for a cuter place to spend our engagement night! Maddi & Josh, Melbourne, 21 Sep 2019

We absolutely adored our stay at Silverleaf Cottage - such a beautiful little sanctuary that’s been styled immaculately to take you on a journey back in time. The plush robes were an amazing extra touch after a nice hot shower on a cold rainy day...we loved our stay and had a gorgeous relaxing weekend getaway. Rosa, Melbourne, 17 Aug 2019

Thank you very much for our magnificent stay. You have created a magical hideaway. The missus wants to create this in our home! We will definitely be back. Mitch & Kelly, Melbourne, 8 Jul 2019

Sending you all of our thanks and appreciation for this wonderful little tucked away world you have created. Our lives of late have been to say the least - stressful and we were finally able to switch off and be in the moment here. It felt like we were staying in a Pinterest Board. Alistair & Whitley, Melbourne, 7 Jul 2019

Perfect place to hide away mid school holidays! Peaceful, quiet, hidden. Thank you! Darren & Bianca, Melbourne, 11 Jan 2019

Absolutely loved my stay here and will most definitely be back!!! Was one of the best airbnbs I’ve stayed at. Was absolutely stunning inside and out. Bernadette was an amazing host and Silverleaf Cottage was to die for. Highly recommend! ...This cottage is absolutely majestic from the detailed high pitched ceiling to the beautiful embroidered towels... Antoinette & Josh, Melbourne, 27 Dec 2018

Silverleaf Cottage not only met but exceeded our expectations. The photos were not at all deceiving, yet a perfect illustration of how wonderful it truly is. A must for a perfect romantic couples getaway. Will definitely be back. Can’t thank you enough for such a magical stay. Your cottage took our breath away from the moment we laid our eyes on it. Can’t wait to come back again. Dean & Leila, Melbourne, 23 Nov 2018

Thank you for making such an effort - a beautiful cottage in an ideallic location. Everything is immaculately presented and you have taken care to think of everything.

On one of the coldest nights of the year Silverleaf Cottage was cosy and warm and romantic. The attention to detail was superb and every whim was catered for. We awoke to bird calls and sunshine through our window and feel as if we can return to the hustle and bustle with a song in our hearts!
