Graeme and Shiela are a great couple, and their home is beautiful and located in a beautiful setting. We enjoyed sitting and talking with them in the evening while overlooking the forest setting and watching the parrots at their bird feeder. They were very helpful in helping us find our way in unfamiliar territory, and offered us special amenities. We highly recommend them.
This was a very unique place to stay - we enjoyed it. The hosts were very congenial and helpful. Even though it was during a hot spell, it was easy to sleep in the cool room.
Wonderful house and location! As shown on the pictures! We only stayed one night but we really enjoyed our time at Graeme's place.
We had a fantastic experience staying at Home Among the Trees. This was our first time with Air bnb and I would definitely use it again. Sheila and Graeme's home is unique with spectacular views and surrounded by a tranquil and cool forest and we felt very lucky to be staying here. The room and bathroom was spacious, fresh, clean and really comfortable. Even though it was cold outside at night, the room was cosy and warm. Sheila and Graeme were so friendly and relaxed and we had two wonderful days exploring Olinda, Sassafras and other nearby little towns. It was only a short drive to the Yarra Valley as well. So much to do and see in the Dandenongs and Home Among the Trees was a great place to be based. I would definitely stay there again. Thankyou Graeme and Shelia for making our stay in the Dandenongs so enjoyable.
Shilas and Graemes home is a paradise, just beautiful place. And they were excellet hosts. Very good WiFi, very nice room for guests a lot to do in Olinda. We can recommend this house to everybody. And if we ever go to Olinda we would for sure try to get to their home again.
Sheila and Graeme at Home Among the Trees were very hospitable. They generously lent us both coats when the weather turned cold and wet, and gave us advice on things to see and do and places to eat. Small touches like chocolates and water were lovely. The guest room is at the bottom of this big house, (several flights of stairs) and I did find I was sneezing a lot - perhaps a combination of the (lovely, unobtrusive) animals and the damp. I did know about the animals but was willing to try. This is a lovely place to get a feel for the forest and the birds.
I almost expected to see Elron, leader of the elves when I walked through the door. Graeme and Sheila's place looks like it's come right out of a movie. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay!
Absolutely beautiful location in the Dandenong/Olinda area and very central to any of the attractions. Sheila and Graeme were very welcoming and relaxed hosts. The house is stunningly designed and offers wonderful views. The room was private, very spacious and comfortable with an ensuite bathroom and private entrance. I only wish we had longer to stay. Would definitely go back.
Relaxed, Friendly place to stay in an Awesome location. Recommend.
We had an enjoyable stay in Graeme and Sheila's lovely home located in the lush forested area of Mt. Dandenong . It was everything as described and our hosts made us feel very comfortable in their home. Our room was clean,spacious, and private.
The landscaping and views from their deck were incredable, and we especially enjoyed the daily visits from the Parrots and Cockatoos. The nearby little towns of Olinda and Sassafras afforded shopping and dining opportunities. All in all, an enjoyable stay.
