The perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

This place is an absolute treasure. I stayed here during a work stint in Mansfield and was fortunate to find this little slice of heaven. The house is beautiful and luxurious whilst being warm and comfortable. The house looks even better than in the photos. Clean and spacious with a fully-equiped kitchen that was perfect for cooking at home and dining amongst the gum trees on the balcony. Everything had been thought of. Perfect location to explore the river and nearby trails. Will happily return and highly recommend.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Great location very peaceful and so close to Mount Buller, with unbelievable access to the epic bike trail and other tracks. 9 of us in the house and it worked so well. We had a great time!

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Great house to base your bike trips. We stayed here over the long weekend and it was a fantastic base for using the many tracks and trails around Buller. Very comfortable, with views across the forest and valley. Great watching the sun go down, as we had dinner and drinks after a long day! Highly recommended.

This house is beautiful! A fantastic weekend escape with plenty of room. Everything we wanted – warm, cosy, clean with great views of the forest as well as easy access to Mt Buller. We will be back in summer with our bikes.

Unfortunate end!

  • 3 of 5

If you are looking at this property please do note that it is still in the process of being built therefore there are parts still unfinished. (August 2017) There is no mention of this whilst making a booking. Myself along with 7 other friends stayed at this "retreat" for the weekend while we enjoy Mt Buller skiing. I have to say, the location is great as it doesn't take too long to get to the mountain. We did enjoy our stay here however on departure, we all are extremely dissapointed by the owners decision to keep $100 of the bond for a broken toilet seat which DID NOT occur during our stay. Upon received this email we asked for photographic evidence which came back with the slightest chip on the back of the toilet seat. Moral of the story, check over everything in this property before staying so you don't end up like us!!!!

Owner's Response: I need to point out that the above reviewer stated that they were going to leave a great review until they realised that bond was going to be deducted because the toilet seat had been damaged and was required to be replaced. We also received a complaint from a our neighbour about noise on their first night, contravening the rules of the house. The above review is misleading, as this house is new, one of the best accommodation options in the area, and is completely finished, as presented in the photos of the house on Stayz. Certainly anyone staying here will have a great stay and enjoy the house as the other reviewers have stated. Happy to chat to any future guests regarding staying at our house.
