Ticked all the boxes
Clean, well located in a quiet area, very comfortable for the 5 of us. Beds for 6 and you could probably add a few on the fold out sofas too. Maybe it could use an audio system to plug your iPod into, but it did have a PS3! Otherwise, all facilities excellent, and a check-in message from the host shows they will look after you if you need them.
Our family of four stayed here while we were in the area cycling. It was everything we hoped for. Close to supermarkets,shops, and a short ride/drive to Geelong City. Lovely weatherboard home,very comfortable. Owners extremely helpful. Highly recommend
Great place to explore West of Melbourne
The house was an excellent base to explore West and North-West of Melbourne... Great Ocean Road, fruit orchards, etc. Being in Geelong really cut down the travelling time. It was also near Coles and food outlets, so it was convenient to the max, and had all the stuff we needed. Very comfortable and convenient. Highly recommend!
Great place to stay
Every thing about the house was great, very clean, good having two bathrooms as we were all getting ready for a wedding ! Good quality appliances, would definitely stay again!!
What a great house.Absolutely everything you could need was supplied.Would definitely recommend .A credit to the owners.
Great Property and location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great property which was very spacious for 3 adults and 2 tweens. The little extras were very much appreciated and the kids loved the PlayStation in their down time.
