About the property

A short trip from the heart of Melbourne and you feel worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city, a small paradise that is completely exclusive for guests.

Barong on the Water is and old style farm cottage offering a home-away-from-home experience, including all the modern luxuries.

The house includes 1 ensuite connected to the master bedroom and a second, larger bathroom.

With 4 cosy bedrooms that sleep up to 6 adults and 6 children there is room for everybody, and then some.

The spacious patio, featuring a 12 seater alfresco area and BBQ, gives a panoramic view of the Nagambie Lake and private access for swimming and leisure activities.

Barong on the Water is located close to local wineries and eateries, along with many other attractions offered by the area.

perfect for a short or long relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

our family held our annual get together at Barong and absolutely loved it .

The property is brilliant with lots of room amenity and is set up for a relaxing time . The host Sandra and Andrew are really friendly and generous and the property was clean as a new pin. I recommend this property for any family looking for a getaway that is not too far from Melbourne

Simply the Best!

  • 5 of 5

We hired this amazing property for New Years Eve and it was the best house we have ever rented. Sandra and her family were amazing and made us feel at home from the minute we arrived.

The house was exceptionally clean with all the modern conveniences available such as free Wifi and 3D TV, lovely kitchen and bathrooms, air-conditioning, comfortable beds and a fully stocked pantry, that was really appreciated. There's a great outdoor area with BBQ, table set-up and a glass fridge to keep your beverages icy on even the hottest days. The property was very spacious with beautiful gardens and a unique farm feel with sheep on the property. It had great view of the Nagambie Lake.

We all enjoyed our stay and I would highly recommend Barong on the water to any family looking for a quiet relaxing holiday. We will definitely be back.
