Christina’s luxury retreat is fresh take on holiday accommodation. Be treated to magnificent views across the Oven’s Valley from the generous entertaining deck and beautiful mineral salt water swimming pool.

You will be captivated by the raw wood ascents, polished concrete floors, bench tops and stunning furnishings.

The master bedroom provides for even the most indulgent escapes with a plush King Bed and en suite including a lavish stone soaking bath that allows for stunning mountain views via over-sized glass doors. The bathrooms are luxuriously appointed with honed concrete floors, walk-in showers, handcrafted cabinetry and stone basins. The main living area is spacious and has a plush black leather lounge and daybed, so you can relax and enjoy the gorgeous scenery. The house has four bedrooms and sleeps a maximum of eight guests. For more than eight guests, the neighbouring house, Leader Reef, can be booked to accommodate a total of 16 guests, subject to availability.

You will always feel comfortable as the house is extremely well insulated. There are 3 air-conditioning units and 5 ceiling fans and Nectre wood-burning fireplace.

BEDROOMS
Furnished with the best of luxury plush Sealy Posturepedic beds, all four bedrooms can be set up as king sized or twin singles and dressed with luxurious European linen. All bedrooms are fitted with functional black and birch plywood wardrobes designed to meet guests’ needs. If you are lucky enough to call the master bedroom yours for the getaway, you can expect an amazing, Japanese inspired, suite with ultra plush king bed, huge views of the mountains, pool and backyard from your own bed. When the moon is out, the entire suite is flooded with moonlight. You can stare at the beautiful moon as you enjoy a soothing soak in the bath. You can gaze at the stars, the moon and listen to the sound of nature from your cosy warm master bed. It is truly an amazing place for unwinding.

ENTERTAINMENT
There is a 65 inch latest release 4K Ultra HD Samsung TV in the main living room. This smart TV has a port so you can bring movies of your choice and connect it to the big screen TV. It can also connect to a wide range of smartphones and devices. All of which can be connected to the soundbar to bring it to a theater like movie session. We also have a small selection of DVDs that you can watch using traditional DVD player in the second lounge.

COOKING AND DINING
The huge timber deck and backyard is setting the scene for a perfect summer barbecue. There is an outdoor Ziegler and Brown barbecue with a grill and hot plate. The indoor kitchen features beautiful concrete benchtops, functional storage spaces and Miele appliances throughout. The kitchen is fully furnished with a microwave, large fridge, pots and pan and cooking utensils.

Dining space is beautiful with a large handcrafted pendant, custom made victorian ash table and seat bench and good looking chairs. We provide some chocolates, T2 teabags and ORO coffee powder and plunger.

EXTRA INDULGENCE
Guests who love to pamper can book themselves a session with our in-house therapists for a massage and day spa treatments. For those wishing to energise themselves for the day can book a private in-house morning yoga session with Emily. Being close to the centre of town means guests can take a leisurely 15 minutes walk to town to shops and enjoy lovely spaces and playground along the Ovens River and eat and drink at top notch restaurants, bars and cafes. We can also invite the in-house chef to cook you a special dinner if you wish.

IN SUMMARY
Christina’s is ideal for guests wanting to experience the beauty of Bright and surrounds. It is a perfect place for families, couples and groups of friends. After a long day exploring, guests can then retreat back to the serene private residence relaxing by the pool in a spacious backyard absorbing stunning views of valleys and mountains.

Location

Bright, Victoria, Australia

Christina's retreat is in a serene holiday location just about 15 minutes walk to town. Nestled on a north-facing hill, high side of town hence the amazing views across the valley to Mount Porepunkah and Apex lookout.

Bright is all about outdoor pursuits and scenic beauty. You will discover cellar doors producing cool climate wines and farm gates selling the freshest of local produce.

Whatever season you visit, you'll be spoiled with stunning scenery. Come in winter for the wonderland of snow at Mount Buffalo, Mount Hotham and Falls Creek. Come in autumn to see why we are named the best autumn town in the country. Bright celebrates Autumn Festival for one week from end of April. Best time to book an autumn stay is from early April to late May.

When the snow melts, the outdoor activity opportunities increase, with famous cycling route Murray to Mountain Rail Trail, mountain biking trails at Mystic MTB Park, mountains hiking, rock climbing, river rafting, river fishing, fly fishing, river and waterholes swimming and fabulous fishing on Ovens, Buffalo and Buckland rivers.

River Fishing season starts from June to September. Best times for fly fishing is from September to December. Exactly when will vary according to river levels, the temperature of the water and the spring snow thaws. Wet fly fishing is very productive especially at the top of pools where the water is running in. Best time to fish is at sunset. Fly Fishing tours in Bright:
Matthew Howell Fly Fishing - 0438 323 252

Fishing, cycling and walking maps can be obtained from Bright Visitor Info Centre: 119 Gavan Street, Bright VIC 3741 or online.
