Property type cottage

About the property


The Oaks is a character filled weatherboard home offering the charm of yesteryear with modern conveniences. It has a large garden with a number of deciduous trees, so it is cool in summer with plenty of sunshine in winter. It is positioned in a quiet culdesac that looks like a country lane and yet it is just off a major road which connects into Eastlink. A couple of minute's walk from the front door will bring you to a bus stop which will take you either to the Croydon train station to get you to the city of Melbourne or in the other direction, to the Dandenongs, stopping at many tourist attractions.

It is an easy 10 minute walk to Churinga Village Shopping Centre and a short drive or longer walk to Croydon Village which features many eating places and boutique shopping.

The local golf course is a five minutes walk away. Enjoy a game of golf or a pleasant walk around the outside of the golf course.

House Features

The Oaks accommodates 6 people in three bedrooms. The master has a queen size bed while bedrooms two and three both have a single bed with a trundle. The trundle gives you the option of having a lower bed for young children, or two single beds set at the same height for older children and adults . All the bedrooms have robes, the master a walk in robe.

The house offers a full ensuite, a family bathroom and a separate toilet with basin.

The living room features a leather lounge suite plus two extra armchairs in front of the windows; an ideal spot for reading. While the house is kept cosy with ducted heating, there is also an open fireplace in the living room for ambiance.

Unlimited free wifi is provided for your convenience. Enjoy the LED/ LCD flat screen TV, DVD's, books, magazines and games. The stereo system allows you to play your own CD's or music from your ipod or other mobile device.

The kitchen is fully equipped and is adjacent to the dining area which opens to an outdoor decking area - a great spot to sit and have a cuppa overlooking the garden. Enjoy wandering around or just sitting under the trees in the fully fenced rear garden.

For families with a baby or toddler, a roomy portacot , highchair and stroller are available for your use.

A lovely comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Our recent weekend stay at The Oaks could not have been more comfortable or enjoyable. Tucked away in a quiet street close to all amenities, this well equipped cottage is a haven of peace and comfort. The cleanliness of the cottage was a highlight and ease of dealings with the owner a real plus!

Excellent Place- Clean, tidy & good location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. We were 6 adults and it has 2 bathrooms. Kitchen, laundry, rooms were clean and tidy. Big lounge, big backyard, very well organised. Location is about 40mins from Melbourne CBD but very close to all shops and shopping malls. Top service by Elizabeth (owner) as we forgot our mobile phone charger, but she offered us to post it for free of cost. We would love to stay again there and recommend to my friend and family. Thanks

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We hired the cottage for my nephew and his family who came over from the UK. They loved staying there . It was a well presented home and they loved it. It also worked very well for them because family was only around the corner.

Home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

A lovely little home for four adults looking for a central location... Only missing a barbeque but turned out there was everything needed for a roast dinner in the oven and then even a magpie to serenade us.
