My partner and I arrived here after a day at the snow. We were staying in the barn cottage. On arrival we entered and instantly were wowed by this accommodation. The fire was lit making it warm and cosy, there was candles lit and some smooth tunes coming from the speakers. The decor suited the warm cosy feeling of the... More

Had a wonderful stay . A fabulous welcome and such luxury . The owners were so welcoming and helpful . Nothing was too much trouble for them. So impressed I'm going to re book right now before we leave. Fabulous. David Moulton

My partner and I stayed in the loft suite about 8 months ago in June to celebrate our anniversary. When we arrived at 3pm to check in, there was nobody around so after knocking and waiting around we called the mobile phone number left on the door. The lady answered and soon enough came to let us in, although she... More

Thank you for your feedback. As discussed over the telephone we had not received payment for your stay and did not receive any calls or emails back when we followed you up. Whilst payments are generally processed prior to a stay, we chose not to cancel your booking due to nonpayment in good faith and unfortunately the first opportunity payment... More

The Dandenongs are so beautiful and Arnica Views is a real treat within this oasis of nature and calm. Set on the road that leads up to Mt Dandenong Observatory, this was the perfect place for a romantic get-away. If you want to escape the city and have a relaxing mountain escape, don't go past Arnica Views.

I recently spent a beautiful weekend in the Sunset Suite at Arnica views From the moment you drive up the driveway you are struck by the peaceful surrounds and the beautiful gardens. The Sunset Suite is at the top of the property with a balcony overlooking the Dandenongs. Our first day there was a 40+ Melbourne day and the split... More

We stayed at the Coorabell Retreat for 2 nights. Highlight was toasting marshmellows over the fireplace, and the jacuzzi was a delight. Nice place. However, it is situated on a dirt road that leads to another private residence and its not as well kept as it looks in the photos.

Nice cosy accommodation. Definitely a property for couples. Pretty gardens to wander in, ample parking and close by to nearby towns like Olinda. We enjoyed the spa bath in the bathroom in the evening and the provision of breakfast supplies is a nice touch. Nobody on site though at check in (just a note as to where to find the... More

We stayed in the Barn Cottage at Arnica. Just the perfect accommodation for two people looking to get away from the world for a while. The perfect retreat nestled in the forest, so peaceful and tranquil. We didn't want to leave and return to the everyday world. Everything you could want is at hand and the hospitality from host Tania... More

My partner surprised me with a night away here for my birthday and I think my jaw hit the ground when we walked into the Coorabell Retreat Cottage at Arnica Views. This place was perfect. Being May and a cold day the owner already had the fire going and there were candles lit. The owner recommended a very nice restaurant... More

Fantastic cottage (we stayed in the Arnica views) and experience. We arrived late to find our cottage warm, lit with candles and music playing. The bed and spa were both great, and the breakfast pack was generous and amazing.
