We stayed for 4 nights, mid November 2014 - and enjoyed every single second! We stayed in the bungalow (which is for 2 couples but we were on our own) which has everything you could expect from boutique, self-catering accommodation - from the king sized bed with pillow menu, to the indoor wood burner and outdoor spa, the gorgeous kitchen...

It was simply great, it was our fourth stay with Steph and Bob, the place is looking great, obviously a lot a maintenance, as it looks better than when we first stayed back in 2001. I can't think of any more relaxing than lying on hammock, watching all the wildlife in a magnificence setting, the view for the dinning table,... More

We went in late September for a 3 day break from Melbourne. The drive up was relaxing with a number of points of interest on the way, such as the spot where the first gold was found in the Ararat district, or the memorial to the founder of AFL football in Moyston. We stopped a few times and enjoyed finding... More

We stayed with another couple in the 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom bungalow for 3 fantastic nights at this boutique 5 star retreat. It is located a few kilometres from Halls Gap in the Grampians on the road to Ararat. There are only 6 individual, luxurious & private residences. The property itself abuts the Grampians National Park and there are... More

Steph and Bob are fabulous hosts, they will go out of their way to help with any requests. The Accomodation is spacious, private, fully equipped and has spectacular views of the beautiful Grampians. This is definitely the best place to 'kick back' and relax and unwind from your usual 'rat race'. There's nothing like an open crackling fire and a... More

We went back to Boroka Downs for a second time, and it was wonderful yet again! Wildlife, scenery, the stars at night (with star-chart, flash-light and binoculars provided) and Bob and Steph's warm welcome made it another fantastic stay. Will likely return here again and again as it is such a relaxing and guaranteed great vacation!

I love this place Stephanie and Bob are the perfect hosts and they even arranged for us a ride to and from the restaurant (courtesy of their daughter) so we could have a drink. The accomodation is beautiful, we could have wished for more and trust me, we're not easliy pleased. Amazing place, amazing people.

We would love to make this an annual event as we so enjoy every aspect of these beautifully appointed luxury apartents. The weather was drizly and cold yet the apartments warm and relaxing with amazing glass walls that invite the outside in. The open fire kept us cosy and the coffee machine was well used. Lunch with a glass of... More

We stayed in the Bungalow with another couple. Impossible to fault the accommodation with its scenery, cleanliness, serenity, well-behaved kangaroos, outdoor spa, comfy beds, attention to detail, awesome fireplace and generous living area all adding to a relaxing experience. Bob and Stephanie were terrific hosts and should be commended for this property that is far and above the best accommodation... More
