  • We loved being able to spend the whole day here with plenty for everyone to explore (across kids aged 4 to 8). It had an incredibly-well stocked kitchen with everything we needed on hand to make meals.

  • 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.
