A small but truly cosy cottage with private garden view and treetop views.
About Christopher Rhodes
Chris loves running through the many trails of the Dandenong Ranges. Gayle loves music, property, design, decorating trends and chatting to people. We both work well together as a team in maintaining, cleaning, gardening, redecorating and hosting. We thrive on doing that little extra for our guests and love to hear feedback on all aspects of their stay. Whilst we like to have a chat, we are careful to not intrude on our guests who love our cottages for the peace, privacy and serenity they provide.

Why Christopher Rhodes chose Sassafras
We fell in love with Clarendon within minutes of walking through the gardens and cottages. So serene!
What makes this Cottage unique
Close enough to walk into Sassafras Village but off the main road so it is very quiet and peaceful. All the cottages have gorgeous garden views through large picture windows so you can sit and relax, watching the birds feeding.
