“Beautiful house, unfortunately let down by the location”
Reviewed March 5, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had 2 nights in this house and it was a really comfortable place to stay. The main reason we picked it was because it is pet friendly. A big house that sleeps 8.
Very welcoming and immaculately clean. All the rooms have been well decorated with quality furnishings. Plenty of continental brekkie provisions and lots of pantry staples. Beautiful big kitchen dining area, cosy lounge and master bed with ensuite. Good wifi.
There is no access to the rear yard for some reason, but the front is fully fenced if you take your dog. Long driveway for car parking with 2 sets of gates for security.
We really liked this property but couldn't dismiss it's location. Ballarat has a lot of beautiful streets, but this definitely wasn't one of them. To us it appeared to be a bit of a 'rough' area. Such a shame because we couldn't really fault the house.
Communication with owners was great.

This home is beautifully furnished and very well equipped. We found it an ideal centre to tour the district around Ballarat and to take in the city. Thank you Catherine and David

Our family stayed at a Beautiful 4 Bedroom home in Ballarat for 9 nights. Communication with the owner was prompt and Catherine & David were very helpful. The house is beautifully furnished and has quality fittings throughout. It is centrally heated which is needed in the cooler climate. The house is situated only a few minutes to the local supermarket and shops. Large country eat in kitchen with full fridge. Quality linen and bedding. Free wifi was
appreciated. A cosy lounge to relax. I would highly recommend this property to future travellers.

We had a wonderful time at this property, and only wish we could have stayed longer. The house is lovely and warm, and beautifully furnished. Great amenities, close to shops and all the attractions of Ballarat are only a short drive away. We really appreciated the little extras the owners included - breakfast supplies, Wifi, DVDs, etc. Thanks once again - we hope to come back for a longer stay next time!

Character, comfortable, cosy, large home.
Beautifully furnished with lots of personal touches.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would love to come back again.
