This is our second time staying here and we are delighted that we have come back, the attention to detail, setting, location and cleanliness of the cottages is perfect. Every thing is laid in from breakfast goodies, good coffee etc and if it's chilly in the evening it has a wonderful little log fire already to light. Whilst wifi isn't... More

Lovely cottages in beautiful natural bush land. Very friendly management (Thanks Peter & Marie Anne)...!!! If you plan to visit Lake Entrance then you should plan to stay at least a day or an evening in this cottage...! So lovely, you will get to pat Alpacas, feeding King parrots while holding on your hands etc. Kids will love it. A... More

Thank you for your review. Lakes Entrance and the East Gippsland region has a huge amount of natural attractions apart from the beaches and the beautiful Gippsland Lakes. We are glad that we have been able to provide a small part of those attractions with our cottages and their surrounds. The native king parrots always seem to know that if... More

This is our third stay at Lomandra Cottage and we simply love it. A secluded location, a characterful, well appointed cottage, the sights and sounds of nature all around us- what could be better? As always, we had a warm welcome from our friendly hosts, Pete and Marie Anne and even the alpacas seemed happy to see us again! We... More

Thank you for your review, and it was so great that you were able to stay with us again. Glad that the friendly native inhabitants paid you a visit, as they are wild they come and go as they please. We too think that our cottages represent 'Australia at its best', but then again we are biased. Hope you have... More

Stayed in the Lilly Pilly cottage for 1 night after a long drive and were greeted by Peter and Marie at our cottage. They gave us a thorough rundown of the cottage and the area and then left us to enjoy the beautiful cottage. I couldn't imagine anywhere as peaceful as this place. Bush out of every window, a roaring... More

We stayed 2 nights at the two bedroom Boobialla cottage which I must say it's so far the best cottage I have been. This beautiful cottage is practically a part of the nature and the interior gave us the feeling of living in a home from a Jane Austen's book. Not to mention it was clean, tidy and equipped with...

We stayed in Lilly Pilly Cottage and it was just beautiful. There were plants and flowers all around it and we could watch the birds through the windows or hand feed the parrots. We had a wood burning stove and could sit by the fire and read. It is a place I would like to go back to - beautifully... More

Thank you for your kind comments, it was great meeting and talking with you. The king parrots seem to be regular visitors to the cottages now - think they know there's a good chance of a feed if there is a car parked outside. Hope you can come back sometime and stay a little longer to see more of our... More

We stayed in Lilly Pilly Cottage for 3 nights this week and it has to be the best cottage we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in so many over the years). There are 4 cottages on the property and are located about 5 kms out of Lakes Entrance on large acreage so it is very quiet and... More

We fell in love with the place. Originally we wanted to go to Merimbula with lakes entrance as a stop off in both directions. We wished we'd just stayed at Lilly Pilly cottage! All of the little touches, and the personal welcome were great. We would recommend staying at Araluen cottages to any couple. And will look to stay there... More

We stated here for 3 nights and just wish it had been for longer. The thought and work that has gone into them is first class and nothing was too much trouble for both Peter and Marie Ann whilst we were there.

Just spent 4 nights at Araluen park and honestly cannot recommend highly enough as anything I say just won't do the location, the cottage or the hosts justice. Absolutely perfect in every way. The cottage was so private with amazing views with some beautiful antique wooden furniture, it felt like coming home after evey trip out.
