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... More

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... More

My husband and I decided to spend a couple of days in the hills to celebrate both his birthday and our wedding anniversary. I found Como Cottages on line and we chose to stay in the 'Forget me Not' cottage, which was absolutely gorgeous - quaint and quirky and, most importantly, cosy and warm. It really did feel like being... More

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. More

My husband and I stayed for a week at Como Cottages in their Mills cottage at Easter 2016. The 1 bedroom cottage can only be described as rustic and unique.

Only stayed overnight in the Mills cottage, but will be back. Oh so comfortable, romantic and a little nostalgic, memories of my grandparents home flooded back with so many original features which put you in a relaxed warm state of mind as soon as you walk in.

This wasn't our first visit to Como Cottages in Olinda, Victoria and I doubt it will be our last. What a difference we found on this trip. Many of the cottages have been freshly painted outside and the gardens looked particularly tidy and stocked with beautiful flowers and plants. New garden decorations give the whole experience a better contemporary feel... More

Yes we have been making the most of the brilliant summer and spending loads of time in the garden and the cottages. What's not to like about our job? And to be able to show it off and share it with amazing people who love it almost as much as we do, is really satisfying. Thank you for re-visiting Olinda... More

These cottages are simply adorable. Everything about them is charming, The owners Brett and Melinda were great to chat to and the cottages had everything we needed plus more. Perfectly situated in the heart of Olinda, it was a short walk to everything that we wanted to see and do. Would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone.

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
