My partner was having surgery in the city and I wanted to take him to a nice relaxing place for him to recover, I came across Como Cottages! Big bed with a fire place at the end of it, movies to watch in bed, double person bath tub and a breakfast basket for in the morning sounded like the perfect...

We are really happy that the little cottage met your expectations. It is unfortunate for us that Melinda who does all our emails also runs the day spa and on the day you checked out, she had back to back treatments from 9.30am until 9.30pm and she didn't get the chance to write a response. We did read your email...

Cotswald Cottage, located on Everest Crescent, Olinda, is right in the centre of town. This is a three bedroom cottage (dated c.1915) with an open plan lounge room and dining room, a well stocked, if old fashioned, kitchen (with breakfast ingredients - there were no food allergy/intolerance options, but we did not inquire beforehand), a fireplace for your use (and...

We do have a discreet mention of doing the dishes (not really a sign saying you have to do them). There are people out there (not like yourselves) who leave with food on the plates on the table!

Stayed in the ' Forget me not' cottage, very cosy and intimate. Well appointed with friendly owners. Really cool rustic feel but with enough modern comforts to satisfy anyone. Bed was comfy and loved the balconies to sit outside and enjoy a cuppa. Has good wi-fi! Will come again and highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed in the Caretaker's Cottage when we were in Olinda for a wedding. The cottage is very poky but perfect if you just need a place to stay and the garden outside is super lovely and almost feels like an extension of your bed. Very easy to come and go as you want and felt private...

Thank you for enjoying your stay in our little Caretaker's cottage, it is a cosy space that we find is perfect for overnight stays and for people attending functions in the area. The continental breakfast provisions are in that cottage only as it doesn't have the full kitchens like our other six cottages, where you would get the bacon and...

We had visited Olinda and stayed in Como Cottages one bedroom cottages before, and this time around we brought back our two children 9 and 11 years.

We do love it when people come back to re-visit the cottages. We have also experienced people's children bringing their own families here after a stay when they were children themselves. Thank you for taking some great photos too. We hope to set the mood for you to relax and enjoy the surrounds.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have two properties in the picturesque Olinda village. One with our romantic cottages for couples and the other for families and groups. We can sleep 22 ppl so it's also perfect for wedding groups and close to lots of the wedding venues up here. The cottage gardens are fern filled and established, luscious wonderlands, a different world to the city and suburbs. Each cottage is self-contained and private and has outdoor decks/balconies as well has well appointed interiors. Open fires, spas and baths add to the experience. We are walking distance (500m) to the boutique shops, cafes and restaurants - so many to choose from too. The Yarra Valley and wineries are a hop, skip and a jump (in the car) or you can get a private tour from here. Whether you're planning a romantic getaway or a family break, we can help you plan your trip. Our day spa ellenaturaleolinda is also just a short stroll away. ... more   less
