Sanctuary Park Cottages
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Sanctuary Park Cottages are beautifully presented and are situated within large grounds ideal for kids. There is a lake with BBQ facilities, playground, swimming pool and lots of farm animals i.e. goats, chickens, sheep, etc to keep the kids entertained. The cottages are far enough apart to provide privacy but also close enough to allow groups to stay and play together. The hosts bent over backwards to keep us happy, doing those things that make a holiday stress-free, e.g lighting the fire ready for our arrival, organising airport transfers. The office has a large selection of DVDs and games free for you to borrow, and the cottages demonstrate a well thought out selection of appliances, utensils, etc. Healesville Sanctuary is next door, and it is a short drive into the lovely town of Healesville. Would highly recommend this place for families and groups looking for a break from the hustle and bustle.

Everything about this place is wonderful! The setting is idyllic, and the rustic cottages are spacious, clean and beautifully appointed. The peace and quiet is great, and there’s scope for kids to run about safely, but it’s only an hour from Melbourne. The hosts are warm and generous and have thought of everything. One of the best places in the world I've stayed at. Highly recommend!

I suprised my wife by bringing her to the cottages for our wedding anniversary. This place was absolutely beautiful. Great friendly service. Beautiful grounds. And the cabin what can I say absolutely perfect. We stayed in the loft. It had everything you needed. Highly recommend this place. Will look forward to coming back

Everything about the property is perfection, the grounds and views are beautiful. The Loft Cottage had everything provided for a few days escape from the rat race, even down to a torch on the key chain to guide you back in at night. , The weather wasn't the best for us but the log fire was put to good use and we asked for advice on local attractions and were given directions to drive to Marysville. the drive over the Black Spur was just awesome loved every minute of it and we would certainly stay at the cottages again if we are ever in the area. Thanks for providing such a beautiful place for us to share

Booked a cottage here without much research, on the morning we left and could not be happier with the decision. Set on an absolutely stunning property with goats, sheep, chickens, a lake with ducks and wonderfully cared for gardens.

The cottages are spaceous, have lots of charm AND everything you need.

Just a short drive from Healesville and incredibly relaxing.

The owners are very friendly, very welcoming and give you all the space you need. I think there are 5 cottages to choose from, we chose the one facing the goats and loved it. Very private.

We will definitely be going back for more.

Room Tip: We loved the deluxe cottage facing the goats - had the most incredible view of the sunset.

Stayed here with my partner two weeks ago. We weren't expecting anything special when we booked The Loft. We got some discount tix for the Sanctuary and we thought let's get some place to sleep around the corner!

We loveeeee The Loft! It has a lovely fireplace which we didn't use (we will next time!), one TV each for the living room and the bedroom which also plays DVD (we borrowed the DVD for free from the office - they also have boardgames!) It has a jacuzzi /spa bath at the mezzanine which we enjoyed on both nights we stayed. I was also amazed by how equipped the kitchen was!

Amazing view of the lake and mountain from our bedroom window - and also a nice porch for morning breakfast with the same view. Simply beautiful and relaxing.

And also, the owners were really helpful and lovely - we'll definitely coming back :)
