We could not have had a better stay. Perfect option for staying in the suburbs and escaping the city. Sipping an early morning coffee on the patio, listening to the birds instead of traffic and sirens. What could be better?
Villa has all the amenities one could want; you feel at home as soon as you walk in the front door of your villa. Lisa and Kees were wonderful hosts.
Location is great; Croydon Metro light rail station is a 15-20 minute walk away. 5 mins by car if you wish to pay for parking. Croydon is a bit of a distance to CBD (30-mins by rail), but a very small sacrifice for the quiet location. Close to Mt. Dandenong and western Alps. Shopping in Croydon centre and nearby Chirnside Park.
One helpful improvement would be the signage at the road at nighttime; even when you've been in and out repeatedly throughout the day, the driveway entrance can easily be missed in the dark on a relatively busy Dorset Road. Be sure when you first arrive it is during daytime.
