A great country experience.

  • 4 of 5

Exactly what we wanted. Big living room space for us all to enjoy, great atmosphere with the fire place and an overall great country experience. On-site golf course is not Augusta but a cool novelty all the same. Kangaroos at dawn and dusk in the paddocks exciting for the kids. Probably should have just stayed longer to enjoy the pizza oven, volleyball court, finska/bocce rink, etc.

Fantastic Group Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas on this property and loved every minute. I am Melbourne based, but had family visiting from overseas for the first time, we are all adults, no kids in the group. The house was perfect for cooking & entertaining, all the kitchen equipment was great quality and the open plan living/kitchen/dining was a dream!

There was endless entertainment for our stay between the games room & all the outdoor activities. The 3 hole golf course in particular was a big hit for us, we were out there everyday - maybe bring some extra golf balls though, only a few were provided and ours tended to get lost easily! There was also a good selection of board games & books in the house.

The property is a good 20-25min drive from Lorne, which was further than we expected, but Deans Marsh was just a 2min drive away and they had a lovely general store and cafe with anything you need to keep you going for the few days, and the people there were very friendly. We did spend time in Lorne & visited the Twelve Apostles during our stay - if you are happy to drive a little the property is well located to do so.

Overall, we loved our stay in this property & I will be recommending it to all my friends.

Owner's Response: Hello Lisa, Many thanks for your favourable review. I just want to clarify the drive into Lorne for others, as this is an important factor when they consider staying a little out of town, and as we do it on a very regular basis, we know exactly how long it takes... A casual drive with some traffic & staying way under speed limit = 18 minutes Knowing the roads & commuting in & out, still under speed limits = 16 minutes A quick drive in/out, driving to (but not in excess) the speed limits = 15 minutes Getting caught behind someone who wants to drive 40km/hour in a 80km/hr zone & not pulling in to 'slow lanes' to let you pass = 20 minutes plus... Thanks again.

Terrific value

  • 5 of 5

Ten of us men stayed down as part of a golf weekend away. It was a terrific place as we stayed up around the fire and played on the three holes there one of those days. Just a beautiful spot in the country!
