About Maria Cunningham
As parents of fur-kids and wanting them to travel with us, we quickly saw the limitations of properties on the market. Few properties that we had access to allowed pets inside and many of them were carpeted and had fabric furnishings - this meant that smelly spaces and fleas were our most common memories and we were determined to not have our cottage be like this. Other than the hall runner (which is too dense for fleas and is cleaned regularly) and easily washable couches/covers we keep everything as fresh and clean as possible. We hope that your care and respect for our cottage means that you'll make sure that your fur-kids don't cause this to change.
Maria Cunningham purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Maria Cunningham chose Cessnock
Schatzi's on Shalimah is my home away from home and I hope you think of it as yours. It's close to the vineyards but you don't then need to jump in the car to go to the shops, pubs or restaurants as there is such a variety to choose from in town varying in walking distance from 10 -30 minutes (2-5mins by car if you choose). Convenient for tour pick ups, there is a vast array of possibilities for tasting wine, food, vodka and chocolate and so much more!!
What makes this Cottage unique
Schatzi was our German Shepherd who loved to explore and run which the big land size allows. Named in her honour it's a very rare property in that your beloved pets are most welcome inside when you're there to supervise with throws provided should you choose to have them on the furniture with you. When you're not at home and if you choose not to take them with you, the large fenced yard gives them room to play and, if you feel that they might be determined diggers or fence climbers (the fences are 150-180cm high all around) they can always be left in the 'doggy space' within the house, safe and sound until you return. We trust that if your lovely fur-kid suffers separation anxiety, a day stay at a local boarding kennel might give them the companionship and supervision that they need.
