“Perfect Engagement”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We stayed in the homestead - excellent value!!. It is such a beautiful, peaceful and romantic place to stay. Betty was absolutely amazing - she helped my fiance plan everything to surprise me with his proposal. Even with several allergy restrictions, Betty made us the most delicious breakfast - and great soy coffee!! Our special weekend would not have been the same with out all your generosity Betty - and the cosy, picturesque homestead. Thank you!!

We were warmly greeted by the Owners and made to feel at home immediately. The "Barn" while looking more like an old Swiss Chalet than a "Barn" had the gas fire running, a bottle of good white wine in the fridge and a large generous welcome platter of fruit, dips and cheese. There is ample quality breakfast ingredients for 2 adults for our 2 days breakfasts. Plenty of coffee pods etc. A lovely view over the valley from the huge porch awaits to enjoy you goodies and a hot spa for 2-3people to really unwind you after your journey - then plenty of towels (and laundry facilities). This house has 2 1/2 bedroom (2 Separate) Sleeping for 8 I think. The Gardens are cute and beautiful. Overall, well worth the minute down the dirt road rather than being on the main road as many others are.I am more than happy to recommend Gracehill to my friends and family.

Room Tip: The "Barn" is away from the main house and is itself a full house.

We stayed in the coach house with some friends on the weekend and it was absolutely lovely! Betty thought of everything! There were so many yummy extras including wine, cheese, dips, fruit, lavish, chocolate biscuits, croissants and special little treats for our toddler...we were very spoilt. We didn't feel like leaving the house! The location is great and the house was so comfortable! We had everything we needed for or short stay and we will definitely be back!

What a perfect weekend away. We stayed in the barn and loved every minute of it. The barn was so beautiful and cozy, the weather wasn't the best but we were more than happy to sit in front of the fire and watch movies. Betty supplied everything you could need and even stocked the fridge with some goodies, it really did feel like home. Defiantly will be returning sometime soon

Perfect long weekend gettaway in the Cottage. Beautiful setting, wonderful (massive!) house with snug fire, fully equipped kitchen with a fridge and basket full of treats. Thank you Betty so much for your generosity. We loved it and it was the perfect base for our 'Babymoon' retreat. We were able to explore the beauty of the Dandenongs but also just rest and relax in our own space. It's perfect for a winter or summer retreat - this is a must do and we'll definitely be back (with the kid - is a perfect space for families too!)

Had a great stay with family all under the one roof. Everything you would hope for was supplied. We travelled from Newcastle and brought supplies and utensils with us, but no need, leave them in the car. Everthing thought of by Betty and Fred. Even the nice touch down to dressing gowns and teddies for the kids beds. Stayed in the barn with sub zero outside and toasty warm inside with gas log fire. Beautiful clear skies gave postcard sunrise views over the valley.
Will certainly go back if we return to Olinda another day.
