The "Housekeeping" Experience
Ever wanted to own a cottage but without the headache of the upkeep and costs?
Join us here at Southview Cottages where you’re treated like family year after year at a cottage that feels like home.
At Southview Cottages we provide our guests with a true housekeeping cottage experience. Our cottages come fully furnished with all kitchen amenities, giving you complete freedom in your vacation to not be reliant on facility hours or high Restaurant prices. Our self-catering cottages will be cleaned and ready for you when you arrive – but we do not offer in-house housekeeping during your stay. This also means that you have to bring your own sheets, pillowcases, blankets, towels, and toiletries.
