About the property

Set on nearly an acre, nestled amongst towering trees, The Nest is on the edge of the Yarra Ranges National Park and backs on to Badger Creek.

With an ancient fern gully, flowering wattles, mesmates and candlebark gums, the property is visited by a host of wild things... parrots, rosellas, black and white cockies, kookaburras, wombats and deer.

It's a quiet setting close to nature but with all the modern conveniences.

As well as the two large bedrooms both with queen size beds, the accommodation includes a large lounge and dining area, warm combustion stove, fully equipped kitchen, laundry, large soaker bath and separate powder room.

Wood for the fire, sheets and towels are provided along with some of the kitchen basics like coffee, tea, sugar, flour, condiments, butter and milk.

Perfect for the weekend getaway, The Nest is just on an hours drive from Melbourne.

We can't add a link to our website on Stayz but feel free to search for 'The Nest Healesville' for more photographs and the most up-to-date availability calendar.

Warm regards Nick and Anna

Loved this place

  • 5 of 5

The nest is so close to nature, yet only a short drive to many of the wonderful attractions around Healsville. But we could have just stayed home at the property as it was so relaxing being that close to nature and hand feeding the birds.We would be back.

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the place was amazing

From the furniture and the way the house is set up. The fire place is amazing.

The tranquil setting that surrounds the property and the birds that come out every morning

Had a very enjoyable stay and the Cabin is set up and furnished with a touch of class. The surrounding bush, the sound of the creek, wood fire made for a very relaxing stay. We would stay again but it was overpriced at over $1,000.00 for two nights especially when the rates state from $195.00 per night. It's a shame because it really was relaxing and we enjoyed our stay.

Love love love this property

  • 5 of 5

This place is an oasis nestled in the forest but is a short 6 minute drive to the centre of town! The beds were incredibly comfortable and the little extras left by Anna and Nick were an added bonus. I have already tried to book again but it's unavailable. I'll be keeping a close eye on this place for future stays.
