Guest AccessGuests have access to the entire cottage Other Things to NoteWe have put a special discount on the Artists' Cottage till Oct 2016, as there is some construction on the next door property. This building site stops and starts intermittently, but I am in contact with the foreman and owners. Despite one bad review, our guests are very happy at the Artists' Cottage. If your days are mostly out at the reef and exploring our wonderful region, obviously it won't affect you, but I do want you to be aware that noise may interfere with the Artists' Cottage usual tranquility. We have adjusted our rate to compensate for this possibility.
