Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We totally loved the property though it was a pity we stayed only 1 night and arrived pretty late in the afternoon. The owner was friendly and showed us around the house with the electric warmers in place for both the living rooms.

There are toys for the kids and my boy was happily playing with them. The spa was a delight especially in the winter and of a good size, we enjoyed it.

There's nice restaurants and a grocery shop nearby so no worries if you need to get your meals or stuff. Would stay here again if i have the chance.

What a beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place! An incredible setting in the Dandenongs, a stunning driveway and a large, well appointed house. Alix is very pleasant to deal with and has obviously looked after this property well. Highly recommended!

every thing you need

  • 5 of 5

the house was close to local attracts, being on a large bush property made it so private, it was the most relaxing peaceful holiday we have experienced. The house had everything you needed there was no need pack anything other than clothes and swimmers for the spa which had amazing views of bush land.
