'Olde World' Charm that delivers.

  • 5 of 5

From the first step over the threshold until the last step when we departed 'Horton on Dormana' delivered a delightful holiday. The old bookies grandstand has a charming aura and we basked in its halo. Tastefully decorated and loaded with so many cushy nooks, there was room galore to escape the more energetic in our party and retreat to a quiet corner. Absolute favourite hide-e-hole was the little study, reading room, I just loved being surrounded by all those books gazing out over the trees to the magnificent view beyond. New Years Eve on the balcony gave us one of the best seats in Dromana to take in all the fireworks exploding in 2017. Magnificent holiday, my golf manic husband smiled broadly the entire time! Thanks so much Nellie and John, you were the perfect hosts for our perfect holiday.

Fantastic Property, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home. Sitting on the deck in the afternoon watching the ocean or enjoying the BBQ in the large garden out the back was great. Lots of comfy places to curl up with a book and really well appointed for families with cot, highchair toys and books. We loved walking down to the beach and lunching at the wineries, and were equally happy to just stay at Horton and enjoy the space and tranquillity. John and Nellie were quick at communicating and had even decorated fro Christmas.

Excellent property & location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Horton on Dromana Hill as a home base for a running, hiking and relaxing weekend. Owners were helpful and friendly and it feels like a home, rather than just a holiday let. Would definitely return, and would recommend to others.

Beautiful eclectic home

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and the beds incredibly comfortable. We found everything that we could possibly need and loved making use of the pool table! Our 2 dogs delighted in the garden (where there were clearly lots of interesting smells) while we enjoyed barbecuing and relaxing. The view across to the sea from the front veranda is stunning. We'd love to go back for longer.

Wonderful old house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Horton House over the Christmas Holiday with our grandchildren. The house easily accommodated seven people; there were enough rooms so that there was plenty of alone space. Homey well equipped house with a good layout. Great location in Dromana. We are planning on coming back with a different set of grandchildren next year.
