Overview

About the property

Best to hear it from a guest - Here is a review............

The mud eco cottage was awesome! It was quaint, cozy, picturesque, tidy & efficient- we can't say enough. The views from the cottage, of the surrounding hills & valley in this particular area of Australian (wine country) was both spectacular and soothing. The "local" birds ( kookaburra, parrots, a huge white Cockatoo and several other colorful species) made such beautiful sounds & were in full view. The grounds had the most amazing floral gardens ... Truly a tranquil setting for the nature lover. We enjoyed the local experience of shopping/ eating in the local markets and near by was the town brewery. As for the touristy aspects, so close to the local vineyards, chocolatiers, Botanical type Gardens were nearby, homemade ice cream, cheese/dairy farms, a flower /Alpaca farm, the list goes on. Healesville was close by w/ a wildlife sanctuary, we ventured on a historic train ride & poked around in the shoppes. We did it all in a relaxed manner & right at our doorstep. This was a sight unseen choice and has become our best kept secret shhhhhh- When we return to Australia this will be our go to stop. For us, close to nearby family and the bounties of the surrounding valley! It has a lot to offer in the ideal location...

Cosy and very cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we enjoyed the cottage, this time in winter. It was lovely having the wood fire going and thoroughly enjoyed staying inside and relaxing. This is now one of our favorite weekend getaways. We will come back. As with our last stay, it was nice to have a loaf of fresh bread, milk, juice and fruit there on our arrival. Many thanks, Richard and Julie.

The cutest place for a romantic weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in the cottage. It's simple but well appointed, spacious and in a great hideaway location. We're going to come back in Winter so we can enjoy the wood fire. Highly recommend it as a base for exploring the Yarra valley region.

A lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage and gardens. The cottage was very cosy and had everything you needed. The host provided us with fresh bread, juice, fruit, milk, butter and jams. We were given total independence and privacy by the host which was just what we needed. Highly recommended!

Perfect weekend retreat - will be using again!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a fantastic time spending two nights out of the city in this adorable cottage.

Finely proportioned and with just the right amount of space to be cosy but not poky, we were able to make use of all the facilities and enjoyed a quiet weekend cooking (oven, stove-top), relaxing by the fire (chopped firewood provided also) and discovering the area by car (very conveniently located).

A generous amount of food, including fruit and fresh home-baked bread was provided.

(Wi-fi is provided in case the occasional email must be answered!)

The owners were very friendly and helpful with requests we had, it was great to meet and briefly chat with them.

With no complaints at all, we will definitely be returning as the serenity of this picturesque cottage is perfect for a weekend retreat.

Great little cottage in quiet location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for one night and really enjoyed the cottage. We were greeted by John (and the family dog) who provided us with a freshly home baked loaf of bread (still warm). We had been out for lunch etc around the Yarra Valley so we planned to stay in for the rest of the day and take advantage of the wood fire and the serenity. The accommodation was great with the spiral staircase upto the main bedroom and even though it was a cold night, the fire kept the whole place warm. Breakfast provisions included top range orange juice, tea/coffee/milk, fresh bread, butter and spreads as well as a bowl of fresh fruit. Would have been nice to have some cereal also but we able to make do. All very clean and a great place to relax and unwind. Would have been great to stay a few nights and explore more.
