“Contemporary country accommodation a perfect title”
Reviewed 1 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Our stay was for only two nights and felt immediately relaxed and pleased with the location and everything about this place. The lovely provisions for breakfast on our first morning was truly appreciated and we found everything to be as described on website. We will certainly stay again. Thank you Tom and Sam

“To be Thoroughly Recommended”
Reviewed 6 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Stayed for 4 nights, in Albany for my daughter’s wedding and we absolutely loved StableBASE. Huge benefit having 2 bedrooms each with en suite, extremely attractive property, great facilities, fresh, modern and squeaky-clean. Set in a semi-rural peaceful location 5 minutes from town. Generous breakfast provisions, and stay rate very reasonable. We know the area well and is close to beach, restaurants et al, so again, cannot recommend highly enough for everything a tourist would wish for. Property owners Tom and Sam have nailed this as the perfect accommodation/retreat, set on a large property with horses, chickens etc.

“Lovely country retreat, great for Eco warriors”
Reviewed 8 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

A bright, spacious 2 bedroom house with it’s own entrance, adjoining owner’s own house. It has a shaded terrace and well-maintained, creative garden, over-looking the fields where various animals can be seen. The owners preference for being ECO friendly definitely came across in the way the property had been built. The setting is peaceful but it is quite a distance outside Albany and you need to drive into town. It was spotlessly clean, new and well equipped with comfortable furniture. The helpful owners gave us information about the local area. We appreciated the thoughtful touch of providing us with some breakfast items (including eggs from their own hens) on arrival and letting us know by email in advance that they would do this as well as sending us directions. This helped to made us feel welcome.

“Just the kind of accommodation you'd want to stay in after a long drive and endless sightseeing”
Reviewed 8 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stablebase is reasonably-priced and exactly what you see in pictures. Its location is a 7 minute drive away from York Street (flanked by an abundance of shops and eateries), yet secluded enough to see starry skies in the night. Stablebase's modern architecture and furnishings made our stay very comfortable and Tom's hospitality made us feel right at home. The kitchen is well-equipped, rooms are spacious and there's a very handy fireplace to warm the place on chilly nights. The firm beds and pillows are just perfect for a good night's sleep.

Forget about data and wifi (one's weak and the other non-existent unless you're in the city), soak up the country atmosphere and interact with the horses and chickens found on the property instead.

My feedback would be to have some shelves and a hand towel hook beside the sink in the disabled-friendly bathroom for convenience.

“Wonderful stay once again.”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We returned to stable base in July as it was a nice stay back in March, it was a bit rainy this time but that didn't get in our way.

When it was raining you couldn't even hear it when you were sleeping, it was truly silent and peaceful.

We got lots of eggs from the chooks that they had, they were really fresh!

It was nice returning to the accomadation.

“Relaxing, tranquil and an ideal place for a peaceful getaway”
Reviewed 20 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Can not say enough nice things about StableBASE. Owners Tom and Sam were very welcoming and helpful suggesting driving routes suitable to our taste, as too the suggestion of places to eat locally. The facilities were stunning, both modern and clean. As too was the peaceful location. We were well catered for with brekky provisions also. Thank you for making our stay one to treasure.
