Joy Carrey - Lucy's Cottage

"I would like to sincerely say that since Kate has taken over the management of Lucy's Cottage I have been impressed with her professional manner, her reliability, and her genuine interest in my project.

I cannot speak more highly of her integrity and honesty in dealing with myself and the clientele.  Kate is an absolute delight to work with.

I would recommend Kate to any person looking for someone to care for their holiday accommodation."


Thurrumbong and its former sister property were the first properties handled by Katie and over the five years of her stewardship we have had nothing but consistently good and always improving results. At times when other property owners are complaining of modest bookings we look at our full, forward bookings and thank Katie for her diligence and attention to all detail.

The fact that 40% of our bookings come from repeat business is a complement to our properties but most importantly to the way in which they are administered. You only have to see the comments in our visitors book to know that Katie's understanding of the needs of each visiting party is spot on and clearly all appreciate the welcome packs of food and wine and the little extras that make a visit to the country even more enjoyable.

In summary, five year-s of hassle free management of our properties - Thank you Katie

Claire and David King - Bonnay

Kate has been managing our property in the Lower Hunter Valley at Mount View since we purchased it.

From an owners point of view she has always gone out of her way to make our lives as owners as easy as possible. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. Her attention to detail is wonderful and her extremely high standards are reflected in our guest fedback which is always positive.
