Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a fabulous time with Sheila and Graeme. The house is amazing and the gardens are lovely. They are very warm and friendly hosts and it is very nice to have access to the lounge/decking area. Sheila went out of her way with my daughter who loves dogs and they both did some grooming with the dogs. The dogs are very mellow and relaxed. Sheila also shared a special doll she has with Lucy and there was much fun playing dress ups with the dolls. I would highly recommend staying here - fantastic space, wonderful hosts and great location to explore The Dandenongs.

  • I had a wonderful stay with Graeme and Sheila in their beautiful home. I was travelling alone and they made me so welcome for my short stay. Breakfast on the balcony with the parrots was a fabulous way to start exploring the beautiful Dandenongs. Thank you so much for such a homely welcome.

  • Wow, what an amazing place to stay. Graeme and Sheila have a beautiful and unique house and were so welcoming. I really appreciated their help when I was hospitalised during my stay and had to make some changes to accommodation arrangements. Sheila was so kind to collect up my gear and bring it in to me in hospital. Great people & a great place to stay.

  • 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.

    Thanks Graeme!

  • 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.
