Stonehill Retreat is pure indulgence

  • 5 of 5

Stonehill Retreat is probably the best house we have stayed in. It was spotlessly clean and Jacqui had a roaring fire welcoming us, together with an amazing breakfast basket in the fridge.

Set away from the hustle and bustle of the roads, the house is in a perfect spot for family relaxation. Blaise made sure we had plenty of wood available to keep warm which made the evenings in very cosy.

We really enjoyed staying in the property when not out and about visiting the wine lands. I would thoroughly recommend this property for a stay; it is well thought out in design and equipment, and features luxurious bed linens and curtains. A true gem. If and when we return to the Yarra Valley we will definitely be asking to stop again!

Girls Getaway

My friend and I had a fabulous stay at Stonehill, it was the perfect spot! It is a spacious but cosy hideaway with all the amenities you could need, and Jacqui and Blaise are fantastic hosts. The fire was roaring on our arrival and the breakfast we had left for us was delicious and well thought out. We were only a 25 minute drive from the wineries and restaurants in the Yarra. I definitely recommend staying here!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and two boys stayed in this beautiful house. We love it so much so that it was so hard for us to get out of the house to visit the attractions at Yarra. The surrounding was lovely, the kitchen was well-equipped and the living room was so cosy. Our kids and us watched DVDs that were made available by our host. Thank you very much. We enjoyed our stay tremendously.

Exceptional

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! It was the little details that we were impressed with, not to mention the calming scenery and tranquility of the property. Really beautiful people to have met plus added bonus of a very re charging holiday away!

Location was great not being so far to travel too... another bonus!
