About david

We are keen Equestrian and House renovators. We renovated the original Farmhouse/Cottage at Tudor Ridge back in 2009. It was the original house for the whole Jacksons Hill area of the Dandenong Ranges and one of the original houses in Kallista. However, it had been left to go into ruin. After 3 years of renovation and restoration, with a lot of personal toil and work, a cottage with a View at Tudor Ridge was finally ready for guests.

david purchased this cottage in 2001

Beautiful views, and very cosy.

  • 5 of 5

A great, quiet, scenic spot. Loved the views and the fireplaces - absolutely perfect for a weekend of gazing out the window, enjoying walking trails and catching up with friends. Relatively quick and easy drive from Melbourne; under an hour from the CBD.

The most Breathtaking Views!!

  • 5 of 5

This cosy little farmhouse looks onto a quaint garden spanning out toward the most amazing views that seem to go on forever! The blinds can't be drawn down, so the views are the first thing you wake up to in the morning, then in the evening you get to sleep with the lights of Melbourne sparkling in the distance.

If I'm going to voice a couple of minor gripes, it would be that the 'old world' shower head was fixed far too high... close to a couple of feet above my head. Not very practical when you're just over five foot in height! The other was that after reading the hosts instructions regarding the spa bath, we were put off by the idea of using it as you needed to plan ahead...ie; it took approximately 45 mins to fill and it was recommended we didn't use water anywhere else during the process. That said, the hosts instructions re how to use appliances etc were to be applauded!

I would highly recommend booking here, especially if you're an avid photographer or simply just appreciate being among picturesque surroundings.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Glad to hear it all went well. In regards to the curtains, they do shut. They are on a "click to release" pull cord arrangement. You have prompted us to include a note on how to use these. Thanks again for spending the time to include a review of us.

Beautiful beyond words

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay, so much so that my wife didn't get treatment for food poisoning until we were due to leave our minimoon. The property is just stunning, the fact you can view it from the sitting room, kitchen, bedroom & spa was the cherry on the cake to us. The lounge with the fire place was so perfectly put together, we didn't want to leave it. An exceptional property. Continental breakfast would have been nice but we really can't complain. All furniture was super comfortable too. It was the perfect property for our minimoon.
