“Beautiful house in quiet but convenient location.”

Yes the photos don't lie - this is a gorgeous old federation house with many original features which is being renovated in a tasteful and fitting manner. The rooms are large (especially the kitchen) and the ceilings are high.
When we were looking for accommodation this house only offered one bedroom - which is perfect for us as we were only a couple - so we didn't take full advantage of the large house (which includes a massive separate dining room) but it was great to have the space. In spite of the size the house warmed up really quickly when the underfloor heating was put on and you can control the heat so that it goes lower (or off) at night - so it was always comfortable.
The owners are still improving the property so it might be even better in the future.

“Christmas at Burnie Brae”
Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We were lucky enough to stay at Burnie Brae over the Christmas period. We were attracted to Burnie Brae due to the large kitchen and found that it was a great space to cook a Christmas feast. The kitchen was well stocked with all equipment and appliances we needed. Equally as great was the formal dining room which proved to be very useful for Christmas lunch. The house was beautifully maintained in keeping with the era of the building. The owners antique furnishings were both comfortable and well suited to the house. Overall the stay was extremely comfortable, peaceful and relaxing. The house is a credit to the owners and we didn't want to leave.
