Very Underrated Property - Worthwhile checking out

  • 5 of 5

This is a very underrated property. Kids loved feeding the animals, with food left by the hosts for that experience. It is a great launching place for visiting Mt Buller, and very reasonably priced. With three options for heating, there was not problem with getting the house toasty warm in mid-winter. And there is plenty of space for the kids to run around and explore.

Peaceful Country Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home away from home. The children enjoyed toasting marshallows on the wood fire, making friends with the Donkey and the Alpacas, watching the in-house movies and wandering around in the "Big Backyard". Enjoyed our well-deserved break and being in such a beautiful part of the country. Was great to relax and get away from it all. The Hosts are very friendly and were willing to help out with anything we needed. Highly recommended.
