Julie’s home is fabulous. Everything you need in such a peaceful spot. Comfy beds, spotlessly clean. Bathroom is light and luxurious. Complete kitchen and good lounge room. If you’re in the area this is where to stay.

Julie went above and beyond in being a gracious host during this stay. The hidden cottage is exactly as depicted and serves as a quiet reprieve. Vicinity to Lara, the airport, the Sanctuary grounds, and nearby You Yangs Regional Park is a plus. Highly recommended!

Julie's Hidden Cottage was sparkling clean, very comfy, and beautifully situated on the property. We sat outside and watched the sunset and local critters passing by...very serene. Quick responses from host and a great place to rest up to begin our journey along the Great Ocean…
