About June McGettigan/ Edward McGettigan
My wife and I were both born in the UK, but have lived in Australia for 31 years. We spent the first 7 years in Western Australia, where all 3 of our children were born. Our family home of 19 years was in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, but the last of the children left home so did we! We moved to Healesville in 2014. June had already retired from being a Midwife and I retired soon after from my job as a Chemical Engineer.
June McGettigan/ Edward McGettigan purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why June McGettigan/ Edward McGettigan chose Healesville
The moment my wife and I saw the property we fell in love with it. If we were staying away from home we would love the location and easy walking distance to the Healesville township. We wanted it to feel like a home, not a hotel type experience. After a long day out visiting the many wineries,visiting the Sanctuary or attending a concert or wedding, you have somewhere comfortable to return to and have the space to relax. If you have any questions regarding restaurants or places to visit while you are in the area, we are always at the end of the phone - just ask us and we will try to help.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is over one hundred years old! It has many of the original features, such as high ceilings, 2 original fireplaces, antique glass in some of the windows and original doors and windows. However, modern conveniences have been added to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Short stay in picturesque Healesville.
Initially we had problems in contacting the owner to get the key code as the mobile number on the website was wrong and they had a new mobile number which was not updated, very frustrating. We were about to head back to Melbourne but they contacted us just in time. After that hiccup our stay was very enjoyable. The property is centrally located in Healesville and close to everything. The charming cottage has been restored beautifully and is sparkling, fresh and clean. We appreciated the extra details that the owners included such as shampoo, conditioner, face wipes in the bathroom. The ducted heating was what was needed during a winter stay and made the cottage really cosy. We would definitely stay again.
We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry for the inconvenience caused by the communcation problems. I had just got a new phone, from which I got locked out so couldn't receive any of your messages. Thank for your kind comments about our offering. We would be very happy to host you again in the future.

Cozy place close to town
My family and I enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend to anyone. The cottage was warm even though the weather was very cold and the beds comfortable. Its proximity to Healesville was also a big plus.
Thank you Craig for your encouraging comments. We are glad that you found the cottage to be cosy and comfortable even in the depths of the Healesville winter. The ultimate compliment is that you would recommend Ingleby Cottage to your friends. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again.

Neat, tidy, quiet area and great price!
Clean and tidy cottage. Good size rooms, accurately described. Owners good communicators. Great price! Highly recommend this place as it won't break the budget if there's a family/group/2 couples!
