About Angeline Bondarenko
We first discovered Captain Lock's Cottage in 2000. It was dilapidated but oozed charm. We renovated with the intention to retain all of it's history and original ambience. The cottage is very comfortable with all of the creature comforts you need for your holiday. The cottage garden was developed using plants from the original garden. It is truly a gem that won't disappoint.

Why Angeline Bondarenko chose Rhyll
Captain Lock's Cottage was built in 1869 and is one of the original cottages built on the Island. The first white child was born in the cottage! There is a plaque commemorating Captain Lock at the local jetty. The cottage was built in three stages by Captain Lock, the first part being built from sealer's huts from French Island that were dismantled and re purposed to build a home for Captain Lock and his family. We fell in love with it and saw the potential of restoring it to it's original charm. When we first peered through the windows we saw the original chandeliers hanging from the vaulted ceilings! The views were gorgeous and Rhyll itself had an ambience that we fell in love with. It is a dear cottage that all our travelers love.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is one of the oldest cottages on the Island. The garden compliments the ambience of this home. It is indeed a Home Away from home!
