Reviewed February 17, 2013

Staying here in the Currawong cottage on the 14/2/2012 and was a great experience, the small little cottage had heaps of character and is very secluded.


Very relaxing and quiet with aircon and breakfast prepared for us.

Would recommend to anyone that wants a quiet, relaxing get away in the Dandenong ranges.

A beautiful cottage, lovely surrounds, very clean and tidy. We stayed at the Kookaburra Cottage. Breakfast provisions were very generous, the service was friendly and helpful. A great place to relax and get away. Olinda has a lot to offer, plenty of walks, cafes etc.

As part of our recent tour of Victoria, we stayed in Kookaburra Cottage and our friends in Currawong Cottage and we all enjoyed our stay so much that we asked to extend our three night stay for an extra night. The attention to detail to make our stay comfortable and relaxing in the cottages was outstanding, from the lit fire, quiet music and home baked cakes and the delicious breakfast ingredients waiting for us in the fridge and the home baked bread nestled in a white napkin waiting on the bread board. We were told the best place and time of day to see Lyre Birds in the Rhododendron Gardens which were just down the road and advised on the places to see nearby, nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were loathe to leave.

There are two cottages: Currawong and Kookaburra

My boyfriend and i stayed in March 2012 for our anniversaryin Currawong Cottage. We loved it! When we arrived the fire, lights and music wer on to welcome us, as well as some delicious home made muffins. The breakfast provisions were amazing! Bacon, eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, baked beans, fruit, juice, fresh bread and so much more! It was very secluded but still close to the Olinda shops; perfect walking distance after a few drinks during dinner.

We also loved the spa. My tip would be to take some bathox bubble bath to make it super luxurious.

We will definitely be back!

We booked Cambridge Cottages for our Wedding Day as a place to get ready prior to the ceremony, come back to in between the Ceremony and Reception and to spend our Wedding night in.

Kevin & Julie are the perfect hosts, warm, welcoming, acommodating, generous and hospitable. Julie made sandwiches for the bridal party for lunch and finger food for us between the ceremony and reception. What can I say.. the food was 5 star quality, absolutely beautiful, we could not have asked for better.

The gardens are magnificent, the cottages (we stayed in Kookaburra Cottage) absolutely beautiful, with relaxing music playing on our arrival and fresh flowers. The cottages are set up to ensure that you get absolute privacy from any other guests, we have never seen or heard anyone else in any of our time there.

When we returned from our reception, a candlelit spa had been set up for us, with a beautiful personalised cake waiting and everything had been straightened up again beautifully to welcome us back.

Julie & Kevin go well and truly above and beyond as hosts, and I would not hesitate to recommend this property as the perfect place to stay if you visit the Dandenongs.

I should mention that we went back for our first wedding anniversary in 2008, spent 2 nights and had a magnificent time, this time organising a 3 course meal in our rooms (absolute restaurant quality, just gorgeous). The breakfasts are just as amazing, you won't be disappointed! We are returning for our 2nd wedding anniversary in 2009..
