Great property for a family that is set back from the road with the luxuries of home.
The first rental in which the bed linen and kitchen utensils and bowls etc were of a high standard. Not a thing was missing to make our time spent at the property a fabulous one!
Could have stayed much longer
A great little place, we were only here for a long weekend but could have stayed much longer. Very comfortable, our dogs loved the yard and the tree swing was great fun for the little one
Beautiful & relaxing retreat
An enjoyable experience in the country. Toasting marshmallows around the Fire pit & sitting on the wide deck to enjoy the scenery were highlights.
What a gem !
Beautiful decor, warm and welcoming - the owners have provided everything you could wish for in this lovely cottage. There is nothing like the warmth from a Coonara to come back to after a day at the snow . We loved our stay and will definitely return !
Amazing little cottage!!
Highly recommend this place! Well equipped with great facilities and extremely clean :)
Ticks all the boxes
We have been going up to Mansfield and it's surrounding areas for years and keep going back for more. Since we discovered 'Austracantha' we don't bother looking at other properties, it suits all our needs. It's clean, cosy and well kitted out. The outside fire-pit is great for sitting around at night, toasting marshmallows and the mornings are such a treat with an abundance of kangaroos grazing out the front of the property. It's good value for money and close to town and Mt Buller.
20 Minute drive to base of Mt Buller, 20 Minute drive to Lake Eildon
