  • The owners live close by so it was especially thoughtful that they had a fire going for us (it was cold!) and had left lights on (given we arrived in the dark). The number of bedrooms (5) was great. The house was very suitable for a young family overall.

  • 10 out of 10 for everything. We most enjoyed drinking lovely red wine next to the fires – both outside and inside. We wouldn’t change a thing.

  • This is a beautiful country homestead that my friends and I stayed for a long weekend. It had everything we wanted or needed and more. Wonderful walks on the property, a cottage garden to explore and the quiet and peace of rural Victoria. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.

  • Your house is amazing and we had a fantastic time. I even had some spare to time to complete a puzzle! The best part of our stay was the way we were greeted on arrival and the facilities.

  • I stayed at Galwiji homestead on two different occasions within a gap of one week. I can call this home away from home. So serene and calm, so neat and well maintained. I appreciate their care for fine details-be it in the kitchen, the beds, the baths or the fire place. It’s a perfect holiday homestead to relax and regain your energy. Go for it!

  • Loved the large house. So quiet in the bedrooms while people are in the living space. The family which owns Galwiji Homestead are lovely to deal with.

  • We had 4 adults and 10 13 year old girls staying in this house. We stayed for a week for a basketball tournament in Ballarat. Fantastic place for a large group.
