Freshly renovated, this quirky 1850's stone cottage is walking distance to Geraldton's CBD, pubs, cafes, restaurants, visitors centre, town beach and water park. Just down the road (600m) is the Foreshore Promenade where you can view Seal Rocks, the Port and visiting cruise ships. You’ll love our little cottage because of it's central location, arty ambiance, generous outdoor space with BBQ, and private off-street parking. The cottage is two bedrooms but has a spare single day-bed in the back living area. Our cottage is a great place to stay for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers. Unfortunately it is not suitable for young children.

Why Rose Holdaway and Peter Berryman chose Geraldton
We love old stone homes. Living in one ourselves, we realised how wonderfully they were built to meet the local conditions. When this little cottage became available just up the street, we jumped at the opportunity to buy it.
What makes this Cottage unique
A unique original Geraldton home, this little cottage once was a home for large families. Opposite the Geraldton Recreation Grounds, it has a peaceful outlook and is just a short stroll to the CBD and Foreshore beaches.

Stone Cottage was a great place to stay in Geraldton. It was convenient clean and comfortable.
The Revolutions bike shop just done the road us a great place to hire a bike and cycle the city paths.
Rose was an excellent and cooperative communicator.
I would highly recommend this lovely little house.
Lovely quaint property in the cantral part of Geraldton.
The guests that I booked accommodation for were very pleased with the accommodation. Nice beds. Plenty of room for them. A secure property. Very clean and tidy. Wonderful location- central to everything that they needed for their stay in Geraldton. A quiet location whilst being not far from the town centre. Good off street parking. A place of character and charm. I will be recommending this property to future visitors that come to Geraldton.
Great decor, comfortable beds
We spent3 nights in the cottage, it was cool inside during a hot spell, solid stone walls insulate well. It was walking distance to town but also had everything we needed. Art works and books were a bonus.
Absolutely loved our stay at the cottage. The place just has a lovely warm and homely feel to it. You have everything you need. It is well furnished and love the quirky decor. The back area is just lovely. Host was also very helpful. Nice and close to everything. Can not fault the place!! Hope to come back some time.
Love the 50's
Loved our time at the Stone Cottage.
Wonderful location brilliant hosts.
A Geraldton Gem!
I was fortunate enough to spend 2 nights at the Stone Cottage. What a great spot in which to relax and unwind, as well as being close to the waterfront and the CBD and all that they have to offer. The house has so much charm and character, spotlessly clean with everything needed for a very comfortable stay. A real home away from home. Excellent value for money & highly recommended. I look forward to staying again!
Our favorite place for dinner is Squeeta's because its right on the Marina (Foreshore Drive), so the view is lovely... and the food is really good too! May be a good idea to book as it can get busy, (08) 9964 1619
Nice pub for a quiet drink is Latitude 28 on Chapman Road. Freemasons Hotel, top end of the mall, does a good pub meal and the Provincial in the West-end is a funky bar with a friendly vibe.
I love Quiet Life Cafe which is just around the corner, at the end of our street (on Marine Terrace), for brekky or a quick snack. Other great cafes are Café Fleur, Flow Vitality (Gregory St, just down from the best fruit and vege market in Geraldton), and the Jaffle Shacks (there are two), one in the West-end and the other on the eastern end of the Foreshore.
You can stroll out to the end of the Esplanade, at the end of our street, to view into the port and across to Seal Rocks. Then it’s a short walk to town and you can follow the Foreshore pathway all the way to the Marina. If you continue past the Marina houses you will come across the Donor Awareness Fountain and a small north facing beach.
It’s well worthwhile to check out our amazing museum which is also by the water at the Marina. It has a 'shipwreck's gallery' which is awesome. There were so many Dutch sailing ships wrecked on our coast and at the Abrolhos Islands. While there find time to see the 3D HMS Sydney underwater film, it's unforgettable!
Sydney Memorial on Mt Scott is a must-see too and is a good vantage point to view Geraldton.
There is so much more and luckily our fabulous Visitors Centre is close by as well (on Marine Terrace halfway between the cottage and the CBD) so you can get some good advice there.
Our end (the West-end) is the groovy part of town :) Lots of street art and some nice shops. If you find Latitude Gallery open (just across the road from Roma and Cavania, two fab stores) check out the beautiful Abrohlos pearls and some local art. Also, ACDC Art Gallery is in the same part of town and our Regional Art Gallery is on the corner of Chapman Rd and Durlacher St and has free entry to some amazing exhibitions.
You should find heaps to do. We have loads of lovely uncrowded beaches and don’t forget to visit our gorgeous lighthouse at Pt Moore.
We hope you have a fabulous stay. We love Geraldton and want everyone else to as well!
