Overview

About the property

Best to hear it from a guest - Here is a review............

The mud eco cottage was awesome! It was quaint, cozy, picturesque, tidy & efficient- we can't say enough. The views from the cottage, of the surrounding hills & valley in this particular area of Australian (wine country) was both spectacular and soothing. The "local" birds ( kookaburra, parrots, a huge white Cockatoo and several other colorful species) made such beautiful sounds & were in full view. The grounds had the most amazing floral gardens ... Truly a tranquil setting for the nature lover. We enjoyed the local experience of shopping/ eating in the local markets and near by was the town brewery. As for the touristy aspects, so close to the local vineyards, chocolatiers, Botanical type Gardens were nearby, homemade ice cream, cheese/dairy farms, a flower /Alpaca farm, the list goes on. Healesville was close by w/ a wildlife sanctuary, we ventured on a historic train ride & poked around in the shoppes. We did it all in a relaxed manner & right at our doorstep. This was a sight unseen choice and has become our best kept secret shhhhhh- When we return to Australia this will be our go to stop. For us, close to nearby family and the bounties of the surrounding valley! It has a lot to offer in the ideal location...

We were so happy to stay at this amazing cottage for our anniversary. It was really cosy and the perfect escape. We walked to Killara Estate for lunch which was also amazing. Beautiful cottage in a beautiful part of the world!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing, cosy and comfortable property right in the heart of the Yarra Valley. We were able to travel easily to surrounding wineries and come back to a warm cottage- with fresh bread, fruit and juice too.

Thank you!

Blissful Getaway

This gorgeous little cottage provided us with everything we needed for the perfect getaway. Beautiful views of native trees and plant life from every window, and the fresh bread, juice, fruit and ground coffee was such a treat.

Highly recommended!
