So lovely to have a 'home' away from home. All needs (and more) catered for! Can only pass on positive comments to everyone we talk to about our stay here. Thank you from all of us who stayed this weekend for a passing out parade. Leeanne Brown &co. October 5th, 2013

Fab stay - clean, fresh all you need, Thanks guys. Awesome style ++ Sept 13 Marchout

Dear Jen,

Our family wants you to know how lovely our stay at 'Rosewood' has been.

We've been riding the emotional roller coaster, with our only son/child marching-out at Kapooka on Friday. Being able to just come 'home' & chill, drink, eat whatever (which you cannot do properly at a hotel) has been wonderful for us. Especially as we had 2 nannas in their 80's with us.

A supermarket & bottle shop around the corner, fantastic pizza & 5 mins to the main street of Wagga Wagga - wonderful!

Thankyou so much for providing spotlessly clean, magnificent accommodation. The beds are superb and all you provided was terrific.

For me the standouts were - the shower head (I want one!!) & the gorgeous willy wagtail who lives out front.

Thanks a million & All the very best. The Clough family X 5th-8th September 2013

 Dear Jen,

A lovely house and a lovely holiday! Rosewood Cottage is adorable, nice and warm - a respite from cold and windy hockey fields. See you again if we ever venture back to Wagga. Regards, Rob, Louise, Mary, Alan, Addy & Amos. 7 July 2013

Dear Jen,

Thanks so much for the use of "Rosewood". It was most comfortable, snug & warm. Staying here was a home away form home. We also appreciated everything you did to accommodate the baby. We will definitely recommend little bunda cottages to our family & friends. Regards Vicki Chivas

June 2013

Hi Jen,

The beds were wonderful, snug & comfortable. The house was warm & inviting. Loved the bath. Thanks for trimming the tree so the van would fit in the driveway, very thoughtful.

Regards Stephen, Jenny, Joshua & Michelle Tekema


May 2nd-5th 2013

Hi Jen.

Well where should we start? The personal welcome was such a thoughtful and comforting touch.

The cottage is so lovingly restored and looked after with everything you could ever need for a special weekend and more!

We have had such a wonderful and memorable weekend with our family and our youngest son who has just marched out of Kapooka, being able to come back to a home for relaxing family time before his next adventure of more specialised training was priceless!

Once again, it has been a pleasure and we will spread the word about this unique home.

Jo, Tony, Liam & Maria. Jordan Clan. & Ryan during the daytime.



Thanks Jen for the opportunity to stay in your House, it is such a charming little place. The three of us girls had a wonderful catch up here in Wagga Wagga. Thanks Karen Eberle



Dear Jen,

This is our second stay here for the "ALICE" Nethery team. My family took over the whole house this time, Bernie, myself and the kids, Zac, Jake & Leah.

Not a bad word to say from any of us. We very much appreciated the air cons (a must at home) a luxury in Wagga. everything we needed was here - especially the wi fi (with 3 young adults this was an absolute "must have".

Congrats on a job well done Thanks XOXOXO Mandy and the team from Alice Springs


Dear Jen,

Thank you for making us feel very welcome to Wagga Wagga. We have had a lovely time here staying in your beautiful house. You have thought of everything a family would need. Rosewood is a real "home away from home". We hope to be able to come and stay again someday.

Kind regards,

Mary, Andrew, Naomi & Ben

Cuballing WA.


Dear Jen,

Thank you for a memorable and wonderful stay in Wagga.

Rosewood Cottage is all (and more!) that a holiday house should be - clean, convenient, quiet, welcoming and so well equipped. You have thought of everything - from the shampoo, soap, coffee, tea to washing powder and even yummy licorice!

We are so glad we found this beautiful cottage and met such an organised, helpful, hospitable and warm person, as you are Jen. Hope to visit again one day!

David, Michelle, Tim, Beth and Aimee Ng. - Sydney -

PS The airconditioning was a lifesaver in 40 degree heat!

Fantastic Jen, Greg, Max and Geordie

A wonderful home away from home.  We are looking forward to staying many more times in the future and enjoying your super family fun for longer on our next visit.  Magical house and garden.  Sitting outside with the rain droplets was a great way to relax after our big toy shopping Wagga adventures.  Thanks for all your lovely treats and lovely friendship. Anne, Andrew, Tom and Monica November 2009

Sienna and I really appreciate the effort you put in, with the toys, pram, dvd’s and cot.  We felt very comfortable and warm.

 Again many thanks. John, Kath, Marg & Elle 4/10/09

PS Our son, Malcolm thoughts your house was great as it was good to be able to visit him and attend his march out of the army and return to your lovely home. Thanks Kathy


Thank you once again for your kind hospitality. “Rosewood” is a lovely place to stay – now all I need to do is choose between “Little Bunda” and “Rosewood” for my next visit. BTW – those biscuits are fantastic!!  I couldn’t stop eating them. Thanks again, Sinead 25/9/09

Hi Jen

We had a wonderful time, the house and garden felt like home. Thanks for everything! McCandless Family 20/9/09

Dear Jen

Thank you so much for your gracious hospitality!  We all had a fabulous stay in your beautiful house and regret that we must say goodbye.  The biscuits were really amazing (yummy!) and the garden really spectacular!  The girls really enjoyed playing amongst the enchanting flowers, dancing with the birds and butterflies.  The beds were super comfortable and warm – a relief to the cold nights which we Brisbanites are so unaccustomed to. Thank you so much again, The Johnson Family 12/9/09

Dear Jen

Thank you for your warm welcome.  The house is lovely and warm and the amenities fantastic.  We definitely recommend the bed, slept really well both nights. Had a lovely meal at the Bridge Tavern and the Chinese food at the shopping plaza was also a good feed and people friendly. The cheese making course is a lot of fun and will recommend Rosewood cottage as a must to stay in while in Wagga. Thank you so much for your generosity and our best compliments on a really nice place to stay. Best wishes, Peter and Toni 21-22 August 2009

Dear Jen,

We had a very relaxing stay at your lovely home after attending our son’s marchout parade at Kapooka. Thank you very much; all the best to you and your family from Andy, Faye and Maddison. Flowers on the mantelpiece were a nice touch. August 2009 

Dear Jen

Thank you for making our stay in Wagga an enjoyable one.  Your house is lovely and we can tell you go to a lot of effort to make this a home away from home for your guests.  We will definitely be recommending you to any family and friends who are looking for accommodation in Wagga. yum! Thank you also for meeting us here and making us feel so welcome. An extra special mention to Geordie for sharing his toys with Lani! We hope to stay here again next time we are down this way. Thanks again, Michelle, Joe and Lani Sydney

Thanks Jen – we had a top weekend. Ball went off well. Nice cosy little house beds are excellent!! John Wickham 1-2 August 2009

Some things I really loved about my visit to Rosewood Cottage:- 

·        The puppy dog walker. I did 3,794 laps inside and lots more on my ‘stage’ near the outdoor table!

·        The musical giraffe – I fitted fourteen smaller items inside

·        The bee-bead frame 

·        The plastic keys – I tried them in every lock; even the traps in the floor!

·        The ‘rock,rock’ chair, with or without a grandma!! 

·        The lavender flowers – they were so delicious, I just wanted to eat them

 ·        The beautiful big ‘barf’

 ·        My cot for ‘nigh, nigh’

 ·        Walking on the autumn leaves to the tiny crevass between the shed and the fence (where gran couldn’t reach me) 

“Tank U” so much for all the little extras, that made my holiday even better than I expected.

Leon (19 months) 

Thank you for such a warm experience, it could not be any more enjoyable, Ann (Leon’s ‘annma) PS loved the Arts & Crafts magazines! 

Thank you for making our stay in Wagga so comfortable and enjoyable. It has been wonderful to have a place for our family and friends to meet for our son’s marchout parade. Everything is of such a high quality and you have forgotten – nothing!! I will remember you to anyone else coming to stay in Wagga. Julia, Brian, Nicholas 4 July 2009

Dear Jen,

This weekend was like returning to one’s childhood home, minus the irritation of one’s extended family! Thank you so much for your generosity. We so appreciated the home comforts and additional ‘little’ luxuries. God Bless, Emmy (Leon’s Mummy) and Leon Hattersley

Dear Jen,

You really have thought of everything. Our stay in Wagga Wagga has been made even more special because we stayed in this homely and lovely place. Thank you. And also for the thoughtful gift for my 50th – we had a lovely celebration with just one additional friend staying over (as pre-paid). If we get to talk with other Kapooka parents we will certainly recommend Rosewood. Jane and Vern Maritz, Hyden, WA 9 April– 13 April 2009

Dear Jen,

We feel blessed to have found and stayed in beautiful Rosewood Cottage. It has been a home away from home and look forward to coming back again. Thank you for being here to meet us, the beautiful lotions, handwashes, cookies (absolutely delicious), and the special touches with the flowers throughout the house. Our son absolutely loved being able to visit with us here after his marchout and commented how it was just like home. Looking forward to seeing you again. Thanks, Lawrie and Lyn Morrison Brisbane QLD 2 April – 5 April 2009
