About the property

Only 1 3/4 hours drive from Melbourne CBD, half way between Gembrook and Launching Place. Your fully self-contained private 2BR cottage nestled between bush and green fields awaits you. You are free to explore our 40 acres, meet our friendly sheep alpacas,chooks and cows. You can leave your busy city life behind you. Spend the days bush walking, riding Puffing Billy, grape grazing at local wineries, cycling, even snow playing in winter.. then relax and unwind in the spa bath, cook a BBQ whilst watching a spectacular sunset over the ranges.

Once the stars are out in the clear country sky, the wildlife is active. Wombats, koalas, kangaroos and bandicoots are some of the animals you'll spot at Hoddles Hideaway. The birdlife is also abundant, no noise, no neighbours, just peace and quiet.

Excellent stay with the family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 consisting of 2x 2 year olds, a 4 1/2 year old and us two adults stayed st Hoddles creek for 3 nights.

We purchased the breakfast basket which was in the kitchen upon arrival. (For parents please note, its light milk which young children aren't meant to drink so don't forget to ask for full cream). It consisted of a small bottle of milk, some butter, bread, jar of jam, some bacon, eggs & tomatoe.

The house is a little dated but well presented. The mattresses are very firm which didn't make for the most restful nights sleep. We found a few cobwebs, the bbq very rusty and the linen is different to the photos but that didn't really impact our stay. We could easily fit 2 cots in the bottom room and could have fit 4 easily in the master upstairs which is handy to note for HOM families. It also has 2 large baths for the kids.

Kath was easily approachable, I texted her for an extra pot when the one I found was dirty and she brought over a clean one straight away. And even when my husband decided to rearrange the lovely stone wall out the front. eep!

The property itself has a few paddocks. Cows, 4 sheep, 2 alpacas & some chickens. It's very secluded so very quiet, the main house is seperated from the holiday house by a few grape vines and a drive way. My 4yr old loved feeding the animals and watching the cows from the house window.

Overall a good stay.

Beautiful weekend getaway!

Great location and Kath was very helpful in recommending places to visit nearby. Our daughter loved meeting and feeding the farm animals and toasting marshmallows on the fire! We will be back!

Beautiful house on a great property

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my wife and daughter for 4 days. House was beautiful and had everything we required for our stay. Loved feeding the animals and in close proximity to puffing billy and wineries. Kath was a lovely host and very responsive to any questions we had. Highly recommended.

Perfect getaway house!

  • 5 of 5

The location was absolutely beautiful and peaceful!! We had no problems and everything was just perfect. Best moment of the trip was waking up with a coffee while spotting some kangaroos on the front lawn.

Worth every cent.

The best

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely Easter stay (2 adults, 3 kids). Lovely hosts, beautiful house. The kids loved the animals and flying fox! And it's not too far from Melbourne but far enough to enjoy some peace.

Stay here, you won't be disappointed!
