Blue Ridge Retreat - Winner Romantic Stayz 2014

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

A romantic adults only escape. This split level two bedroom luxury villa is located in Halls Gap and is nestled under the "Pinnacle" escarpment in peaceful surroundings with no immediate neighbours. The main bedroom features a queen size bed and large oval sunken spa and the second bedroom has a queen size bed. Appreciate the tranquil natural environment and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature at this villa which is ideally set up for one or two couples. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness and attention to detail. Please note we provide a totally smoke free environment, therefore we do not accept bookings from smokers.

Treat Yourself.........

To all that Blue Ridge Retreat offers, cuddle up on the comfy leather chaise lounge in front of the cosy gas log fire, take a long soak by candlelight in the huge sunken spa with extra jets to ease those tired muscles, or just relax and revive the senses as you share the magnificent views or watch the local wildlife from the huge north facing elevated deck which features a shade sail, Weber Q gas BBQ and outdoor dining setting. You can even appreciate the night sky or maybe even bathe by moonlight due to the extra height windows in the main bedroom. Choose to do as little or as much as you like, dine at one of the restaurants, cafes or bistros, sample the fare at wineries and olive plantations, appreciate the waterfalls and lookouts, go for a bushwalk on the numerous scenic walks (ranging from easy to challenging), visit Branbuk Cultural Centre, Aboriginal Art sites, 4WD, abseil or climb with one of the tour operators, play golf at the Mt Difficult or Stawell courses, or test yourself at Adventure Golf on one of the most challenging mini golf courses in Australia. Visit the nearby wildlife zoo, lavender farm or browse for art, antiques and bric-a-brac.

NOTE: Blue Ridge Retreat is a TOTALLY NO SMOKING PROPERTY, STRICTLY ADULTS ONLY and NO PETS. Maximum adults - 4.

Quality throughout.........

As well as the large gas log fire and huge sunken oval spa there is a 49" UHD TV with Blue-Ray DVD player and surround sound, a micro hifi and a Bluetooth speaker in the bedroom spa area, a selection of pillows, an electric blanket in the 2nd bedroom, extra blankets, selection of DVDs, CDs books and magazines, inverter airconditioning/heating in lounge/dining and main bedroom, adjustable mood lighting, battery operated candles for that intimate dining or spa experience, celing fans in all main rooms, large open plan bathroom with hairdryer, shower gel and hand soap, blockout and sunscreen blinds (privacy with a view), full stainless steel kitchen (dishwasher, fan forced oven, gas cooktop, microwave), refrigerator, Weber Q BBQ with equipment and spray oil, 6 person outdoor setting and 2 person contemplation seating on the deck and in the garden, mosquito lamp, washing machine, quality linen and soft fluffy towels, milk, tea and coffee, a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine, chocolate, The Views Restaurant voucher and a personal amenities pack on arrival.
