Hidden Valley Retreat

Bedrooms 2
Property type house


About the property

Architecturally inspired, designed to highlight light and outlook from every room

Well appointed kitchen and bathrooms, 2 queen size beds & 1 single, ducted heating and cooling.

Elevated on its own privite winter creek, surrounded by beautiful native gardens, on approximately one acre,

Hidden Valley Retreat is a perfect place to just sit back and enjoy the peace and quiet whilst watching and listening to the array of native birds.

Or on warm summer days nestle into your hammock under the bows of the willow tree and let your imagination take you away.

At night you have 18 lamps to play with to set any mood your heart desires

With a short easy stroll you are in the hub of Castlemaines shops, gallerys & restaurants.

Daylesford, Maldon and Bendigo are all within a 30 minute drive

This truly is one of Castlemaine’s gems of tranquillity in the heart of town.

Beautifully presented and extremely comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Annie's property is well cared for and beautifully presented. It has gorgeous outlooks to trees from almost every window, lovely vintage furniture and hotel quality sheets. The kids enjoyed looking for tadpoles in the little creek and the parents enjoyed just hanging out on the couches! Annie has generously provided an extensive array of basics and condiments in the kitchen. If I could suggest any improvement it would be to relocate the trampoline and add a net around it for young children.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I recently spent a weekend at Annie's property and absolutely loved it.

We had a good chuckle walking around the house counting the lamps, Annie you have a great sense of humour!

The property was lovely and clean, bright, airy and private and within walking distance to some great eateries, markets and local sites.

We enjoyed sitting down by the winter creek spotting frogs and bird watching and enjoying the morning sun on the balcony before heading off for breakfast before playing an acoustic set for the nesting Gallahs in the gum out the front :)

The Rolling Stone picture book and alternative CD collection was right up our alley too.

Thanks Annie for your lovely hospitality and we hope to visit again.
