About the property

Almora Rest can be rented as two separate accommodation areas - Guest House or Cottage - or as an entire house depending on the number of people in your group. Each has its own entrance.

The guest house is comprised of 2 bedrooms (1 x queen and 1 x double), each with its own ensuite. Both bedrooms have views of the lovely green lawns, views of the peaceful country side as well as the variety of trees.

There is also a spacious new kitchen which opens out onto a deck area, lounge room and a dining room all of which have outlooks.

The Guest House accommodates up to 4 people and can also be booked separately from the Cottage.

PETS ARE WELCOME. You are welcome to bring your pets with you on your holiday. There is a charge for this (see costs).

Children love to ride their bikes around the property and it's very safe.

You can take your kids to a close by Aussie farm owned by 2 of the local Aussie characters. Their farm is very rustic and interesting including, cows, sheep, lambs, turkeys, chickens, ducks and 3 gorgeous peacocks.

Lovely place to stay! We had 7 adults and a 3 month old and it was excellent for what we needed! There was plenty of room for all of us. We loved the location, very quiet and not far from Warrnambool. The scenery was beautiful and great been surrounded by such lush green space! Owner was very accommodating and nothing seemed too much trouble. The house was very clean, comfortable beds and couches. We would absolutely stay here again and we look forward to doing so one day! Thank you!

Excellent & homely

  • 4 of 5

At the end of a tree lined driveway is the lovely Almora Rest, a warm, cosy and exceptionally clean cottage that is very pet friendly. Almora was warm & inviting as the heating had been on in preparation of our arrival. Almora Rest is very comfortable, has character & charm and was a perfect fit for our overnight stay. The little yet considered touches such as warm home upon arrival, a plate of cookies on the table along with a selection of teas, coffee & fresh milk were greatly appreciated. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, clean and charming accommodation option Almora Rest is the answer. Nothing was too much bother for our hosts, I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I recommend Almora Rest to all. I look forward to returning.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

Trevor and Krys were wonderful hosts, very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was spotless, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Our 15 month old groodle had a great time on the property, plenty of room to run around. He also loved the alpacas LOL. We would highly recommend a stay at Almora Rest.

Great property in a beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at this beautiful spot and Trevor was a great host. The place was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated with some very nice touches. The bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get up in the morning! It was nice that we got to see the Alpacas in the garden, they were a nice treat. Was a good place to bring our dog as lots of nice walking areas for him, all in all we would recommend this place and will definitely be back again! Thanks Trevor for making our stay a nice one!

Ideal getaway

Took the wife away for our first wedding anniversary. Had a lovely stay, and the cheese and fruit platter was an excellent touch.

Cosy and charming

  • 5 of 5

we only stayed one night but would love to return for a longer visit. Trevor and Krystina were delightful hosts and made us - and our dog - very welcome. The cottage is charming, cosy, tastefully furnished and immaculately clean. Highly recommended!
