Very comfortable house!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in summer, using the comfortable home for our base to access mountain bike trails on Mt Buller. The home is only a few minutes drive from the front gate of Mt Buller and about 20 mins to the top of Mt Buller.

The home has a lovely fireplace and is very clean and tidy. The beds are comfortable and the house is VERY well stocked (linen, towels and kitchen basics).

Anna was a lovely host and went out of her way to make us feel welcome. She also provided excellent directions & maps to the property as well as other maps of the local area.

The house is great for bikes (with a bike rack out the front) and would be good for skiing with a good size laundry and drying area.

Good location & well priced - However...

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in January and wanted access to buller off mountain. Location is great for access to cafés & Mansfield. Property is spacious and clean.

Our 2 concerns with the property is that there isn't air conditioning and inside was 34 degrees. This made it uncomfortable for a baby & 3 yr old. Mobile phone reception even with telstra is basically zero. You need to drive to top of street (200m) to get a couple of bars.

We did use the pool at the mecure which by agreement is $10 for the day (total for all of us) several times to relax and stay cool.

If reception improves and a/c installed we'd return. Otherwise not.

Owner's Response: Thank you Robbie for taking your time in providing specific details of your stay. As the chalets are most popular during the ski season we have until now received very little feedback from summer guests. This year, with improvements to the mountain hiking and biking courses we are beginning to increase bookings and I hope to have many return guests as we do each winter. In response, we have added detail to our guest notes explaining that this mountain area has low phone coverage for Telstra users and none for others. This is a positive for those enjoying the time away from technology, and I understand it can be frustrating for those reliant upon it. The High Country Summer can reach very high temperatures, and with your feedback we are looking for a cooling option so that our guests can stay in even greater comfort. Thanking you, Anna

Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a couple of days at Merinda over the Christmas period and can highly recommend it.  A real home away from home.  Importantly for us it was pet friendly.  If you are looking for a getaway in the high country, this one is well worth booking!

Mt Dandenong

Spacious, modern & very reasonably priced

  • 5 of 5

The house is delightfully spacious, everything you need for a comfortable stay. There's an inn just down the road to visit for a drink and walk home if we wanted, but we were really content staying in, playing board games around the big table. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen equipped with everything you would need to cook up a storm, washing machine and dryer, heating in all rooms (not that we needed it in Jan), planty of storage space for outdoor boots etc, big bathroom, and a view of Mt Buller. It was an excellent standard of accomodation at a most reasonable rate.
