We stayed in the Stables Cottage and that was great. Clean, warm, comfortable and so peaceful. Nice walks around the area and a close drive to Sassafras, Olinda and Mt Dandenong villages. Close enough from Melb for a weekend escape but we felt like we were a long way from the city.

What a beautiful tranquil property. From the moment we entered the Stables Cottage, we knew we were going to enjoy our stay. The gas log fire was glowing and the cottage was lovely and warm. Attention to detail is very evident. The cottage is decorated and furnished beautifully, very comfortable bedding, spotlessly clean and very spacious. Then there was also... More

Thank you, Kerrie, for your lovely review and we were just thrilled that you loved our property just as much as we do. It was a pleasure having the three of you to stay and hear about the plans for your daughter's swimming career. We wish you all every success. Warm regards Pam & Ian More

We stayed in the stables and loved hearing of how they were originally to how it is now. A lovely cosy cottage with everything you could wish for. A well equipped kitchen and a lovely breakfast hamper plus chocolates and port ( an unexpected treat). Stunning bathroom and a lovely comfy bed. A beautiful secluded peaceful setting with lots of...

The location is superb, the host very gracious and helpful, and the gardens and bird life are wonderful. Quite close to Melbourne but still within the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. My favorite spot when visiting Melbourne.

When Ian opened the door to Camelia cottage our mouths fell open - it was truly gorgeous! Pam has done an amazing job with the interior design/decor. So classy, so cosy, and so clean. Ian showed us where everything was and also outlined a short walk and gave us some options for dinner. Such a peaceful and lovely spot. The... More

We spent two days walking in the Dandenongs. We stayed in the beautifully renovated Stable Cottage! Every attention to detail and thoughtfulness was very evident. The owners were friendly and helpful putting the heating on before we arrived. There was complementary wine, port and chocolates on arrival. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed. The bedrooms were... More

Lovely little cottage, simple and cosy. we stayed for 5 nights in Camelia cottage. has all the necessary basics for a weekend away. perhaps a little to small if you consider a lengthier stay as the bedroom is the main room. it also serves as a livingroom which may makes it more suitable for just a weekend for a couple...
