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

Attention to detail, country charm and peace greeted my mother and I as we relaxed from a hectic few months. From the first contact to the farewell Ian and Pam made our stay a total dream. I'm so glad we chose Clarendon Cottages. We stayed in The Stables and it was perfect, something not said lightly. To sit by 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...

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and we were sorry that you found our Camellia Cottage accommodation average as most of our guests are delighted with the facilities.

My fiance is from the US and, on his recent (and first) visit to Melbourne, I wanted us to be able to experience a cottage stay in the Dandenongs and to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Boy, did we pick the right place! Clarendon Cottages is set on such a beautiful piece of property and... More

We were seeking a quiet overnight stay in a secluded setting and were not disappointed. Previous reviews of these cottages do not exaggerate the high quality of this accommodation. Reading the one negative review and Pam's response was the final prompt for us to book this accommodation, as we felt reassured that here were owners who have a genuine commitment... More

We stayed in the cozy 2-bd cottage featured on the homepage. It was the perfect retreat for us. The immaculate, well-appointed cottage and abundant gardens and grounds offered our family of four (2 younger children) a wonderful stay, and many comforts over the Christmas holidays. It felt like a home. The cottages are well-situated apart from each other to provide... More

The Stables was a delightful place to end a long holiday traveling around SA & VIC. Our hosts were charming and very accommodating when our family opted to join us for a couple of days, nothing seemed too much trouble. The facilities were excellent. The location is peaceful and secluded but close to all the Dandenongs have to offer. Recommend... More

We enjoyed 5 nights in Camillia Cottage. The large bed was really comfortable. The breakfast hamper was very generously packed (couldn't eat it all!) and the log fire and gas heating was most welcome. DVDs are available to borrow. My only gripe was the unheated bathroom. Pam & Ian are great hosts. Sassafras is lacking in good places to eat... More
