How lovely! The rain on the tin roof and different birds chirping. We felt like we were in a tree house looking out the windows at the beautiful trees and ferns. Listening to the water trickle along the little brook. All the little elegant touches and yummy breakfast made our stay relaxing and refreshing.

Spent a lovely weekend at Cottages Monreale with friends. We stayed in a two bedroom cottage which had a large lounge & kitchen. The cabin was very clean but did need a bit of repair. The couple who ran the facility were lovely and extemely helpful. Would definately recommend the cottages.

Stayed in the Watergarden cottage, was lovely and quiet, the spa worked, and wifi worked, very secluded and relaxing. Lovely lady at reception, top service. Only comment would be that the DVD player (which is a combo with the TV) would only play one of my DVDs, perhaps it needs looking at.

My partner and I had a lovely weekend here earlier in the year and it was sensational. A beautiful cottage in beautiful gardens. We opted for the serenity cottage which included a loft bedroom. Very romantic. Adding to the ambiance was the beautiful wood heater with plenty of firewood left to keep us warm. The property included DVD player which... More

We stayed here in May. If you are looking for a relaxing break this will definitely fit. Everything you need to make meals and. shops close by to get supplies. This is a really beautiful area but cold, take warm clothes. The cottages are not close together so you have privacy. Would stay here agin if in the area.

What an amazing experience, from the moment we arrived we were left in complete privacy in the aptly named Steeple cottage. A spa bath next to the bed absolutely heavenly! A beautiful array of breakfast goodies and a hostess basket in the kitchen and bathroom made us feel welcome and appreciated. Phil and I needed a break from the hassles... More

As the classic 80s song says this really is heaven on earth. Immaculately maintained cottages complete with log fire and double spa and a king bed you needed a rope and four wheel drive to drag me out of. Located in the heart of the Dandenong ranges this property is so idyllic that the autumn leaves, the little creek water... More

Upon arriving I admired all the awards on reception wall thinking gee they must be good. Understatement of the year! Two nights away in our beautiful water garden cottage was divine. Within one hour in this peaceful retreat the stress dissipated. Cottage was clean, quiet and just gorgeous. The fire was lit, the spa was run and the champagne popped.... More
