Relaxing in the country

  • 5 of 5

A truly wonderful property. Excellent accommodation for 5 couples. Bedrooms were quiet and comfortable. Expansive living and relaxing areas and a beautiful warm wood fire backed up with central heating....we needed it as it was 5degrees outside. The setting, beautiful gardens looking over rolling farmland, was spectacular and visible from every room. we enjoyed it mid winter but think it would be even more spectacular in the warmer months. Total relaxation. Also easy to access from Melbourne airport and a short hour from the CBD, but handy to other great locations.

Exemplary Host, Stunning Property=Lifetime Memory

  • 5 of 5

I could write an essay to highlight the most wonderful experience at Hillcrest whereby immediately as you arrive at the gates you are embraced by an awesome 'soul' and breathtaking grounds. Much care, love and planning has been the foundations of this fabulous country estate and it is endless the amount of enjoyment that can be enjoyed and experienced. How fortunate were we to have the opportunity to be caretakers of Hillcrest if even for a short period in our lives. Our requirement was to find a property in this beautiful part of the world that would be our home for my family in a very special time of our lives - firstly a night stay for my daughter to prepare for her wedding ceremonial vows at Hanging Rock and for my UK based family to experience a true Victorian getaway. We were in fact provided with much, much more.

Our Host Wayne is undoubtedly the most exemplary, caring and attentive person who was always prompt to assist with questions and assistance. My family has had a 'world' of experience in property rentals from Castles in Wales, Country Estates in gEngland, Villas in the Med to Island hide-aways, from modest to 'not so modest' -- yet never have I/we experienced such a truly wonderful Australian host experience in a truly amazing property which offers so much! Thank you Hillcrest for our awesome experience and thank you Wayne for being such an amazing Host. I would truly hope to have the good fortunate to return to Hillcrest Estate.
