We also have a similar cottage on the property which features 1 bed (Tandara) - look at property ID 200083 on Stayz) . The cottages are about 80 metres apart and both offer the same stunning views.


Please note, Taronga is not suitable for children under 10 and children would have to share the double bed as singles are not available. Babies (under 1 year old) are fine.

Choice of Activities

Anderley is a great place to do nothing, but there are plenty of options if you want to be more active. Talk to you hosts when you make your booking and they will be happy to make some suggestions that might suit you. But for starters...

*Yarragon Village is a delightful place to spend time browsing in the antique and specialist shops, or trying out one of the many little cafes.

*A bush walk through the Mount Worth State Park (about 15 mins drive from Anderley).

*A drive to Mirboo North (about 35 mins each way from Anderley). Famous for its brewery, you can sample and purchase many boutique beers. A scenic drive to a pretty town.

*Mt Baw Baw is about 90 minutes away drive up the new South Face Road and spend some time - summer or winter - in this stunning area.

*Or head off on a gourmet trail - there are many very good quality local wineries (some with excellent restaurants/cafes).

Dog Policy

• Guest's dogs may have inside access to the cottage at the property owner's discretion. In consideration of others they must be kept off all soft furnishings and carpets.

• Dogs must be on a leash at all times whilst on our property unless otherwise agreed with the owners.(mainly to ensure both their safety and other animal safety if your dog's recall is not good)

• Please note that there is not a secure dog run available, but the deck of the cottage is large and reasonably secure.

• Dogs must not be left unattended in the cottage and must accompany guests when they leave our premises for outings.

• Barking must be controlled at all times.

• Dogs need to be cleaned up after. (Even in the paddocks, as their waste can contain elements harmful to the eco-system of our paddocks)

• On the property there are horses, cattle, chickens and a (friendly) resident dog and cat. We ask you to consider both their safety and your dog's safety if your dog is near them.

• If excess cleaning is required or if it is necessary to repair any damage caused by your pet, this cost will be the responsibility of the guest

Absolute perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most beautiful long-weekend stay here. The property is stunning, immaculately clean, incredibly comfortable and simply just warm and inviting. Our hosts made our check-in/arrival and check-out so easy and they were absolutely lovely - even going to the trouble of posting back to us a jacket we left behind! We brought our little dog with us and it was such a joy to watch him happily run around the decking and spend the time with us. We will be back. Many times I would think!

Owner's Response: Hi Vanessa, Thanks for your review and feedback. We are sorry you didn't realise the design was open plan. We thought that the set up and design of the cottage was clear from the description and photos on our listings - we will make some changes to try and make it clearer. Also - sorry about the missing potato masher - that slipped past us! We could easily have supplied one if you had let us know at the time.... it has now been replaced. We are glad you enjoyed your stay overall and we have taken all your feedback on board to help us improve our offering. We like to try and maintain the 5 star ratings from our guests! Regards, Lee and Andrew
