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

Peaceful and Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at The Nest. It is a most peaceful location with abundant birdlife and the majestic Mountain Ash forest. The house is very comfortable and is a convenient base from which to explore Healesville and the Yarra Valley.

Amazing Private Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Could not be happier with our stay at The Nest. Property was amazingly private but only 10 minutes ($12 cab ride) to the center of Healesville. Perfect base for exploring the wineries, restaurants and shops that the Yarra Valley has to offer. The pictures don't do the house justice, absolutely stunning and plenty of room for two couples. Waking up to the babbling creek was a great surprise! We will definitely be back!

Gorgeous home with fantastic wildlife!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at “The Nest”.

The house is cozy, clean and well stocked. My son enjoyed feeding the bird life and viewing the wildlife (multitude of different birds, wombats and kangaroos).

The view from the lounge is picture perfect - a glass of red and the roaring fire. Perfect getaway.

We will definitely be back!

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
