House rules
The host doesn’t allow parties or smoking.
Huge private bungalow behind the main residence. It's one large room that serves as the bedroom and lounge space with a separate bathroom.
Carpeted and fitted out with modern furniture, you can relax in the hills, enjoy coffee on you own mini deck or check out the local wildlife. The space has its own modern bathroom with shower.
Please be aware that phone reception is limited. Our street is an unsealed road (gravel).

The space
The Sun Room Bungalow is situated behind the main house to give you privacy.
The room is set up with a comfortable queen bed.
There is a futon style sofa bed made up upon request.
We now also offer a single trundle bed which can be set up upon request in addition to the queen and sofa bed. This will incur the additional guest fee when you book your nights.
We only set up the futon when needed so if your booking for 2 people requires both beds made up, please let me know.
There is an additional charge of $10 for the extra linens.
Please DO NOT pull out and use the futon bed if you haven’t requested it and we have not set it up as a bed.
If you do so, you will be charged a $50 laundry fee to clean the futon cover, cushions and blankets as these items require special laundering and are not mean to be slept on.
Please be aware that the set up of the futon and/or trundle bed limits the space in the room and also means the room will be set up differently than in the photos to accommodate the additional beds.
The room is carpeted, the bathroom is new and we have decorated it in a modern functional style.
You'll have your own coffee and tea making facilities, bar fridge and microwave with provisions for breakfast provided - bakery items, cereal and fruit.
There is a tv and dvd player (we have provided a few selected dvds for you)
Please read the house rules to make sure our place is a good fit for your needs.
Phone reception isn't great up here however we do provide WiFi. The signal is as good as we can get it, it is boosted from the main modem and may drop out.

We have 2 dogs, they are both medium sized but as with any dog, they like to bark and are always interested in new people. They are fine once they meet you so please allow us to introduce you to them before you approach them.
If you are uncomfortable with dogs please let me know and I will keep them in the main house as much as I can.
We keep a chicken, ducks, budgies and we also have a cat and our latest additions - 2 bunnies!

There is back yard access, we have a beautiful garden with flowers, wild birds who like to be hand fed and a paved area perfect for sitting out, enjoying a glass of wine from the Yarra Valley which is a 30 min drive away.
A short walk to Tatra Receptions, we are in a great location for those attending a wedding and want to spend the night in the Dandenongs after the event.
We are also a short drive to Sky High, Poets Lane Receptions, Lyre Bird Falls, Grants and many other Mount Dandenong wedding venues.

Location

Mount Dandenong, Victoria, Australia

The Dandenongs are a unique area in Melbourne. Up in the mountains we have an almost rainforest like climate.
The property is about 1km walk (15mins) to the village of Mt Dandenong or 2km walk to Olinda. There are plenty of cafes, bakeries and 3 pubs serving craft beers within walking distance.
There are also lots of hiking trails and nature walks.
We have local artist William Ricketts' Reserve about 10mins walk away where you can stroll through an open air art gallery featuring his beautiful sculptures and carvings.
You can feed the local Cockatoos at Grants Feeding grounds or walk through the Rhododendron Gardens in Olinda.
There has recently been a brand new children’s playground built on the site of the old Olinda golf course - highly recommended!! The views are epic and the facilities are amazing.
30 mins away by car is the Yarra Valley, perfect for wine tasting, sampling local grown strawberries, craft beers and artisan cheeses.
There are lots of markets at the weekends selling local produce, crafts and food.
We are very close to many wedding reception venues and Tatra Receptions is literally a 5 min walk away.

We bought this place in 2015 and it came with an awesome newly reno-ed bungalow/guest house. So while its not being used by relatives from overseas I thought I should share it with everyone as the Dandenongs are beautiful and well worth a visit. For the past 10 years I've also run my own cake company called 'Lazycakes by Lauren' and love sugar craft and creating art from cake. I've worked in hospitality since I was 15 so if I can put that experience and knowledge into my Airbnb I’ll be happy! Lx

During your stay
We live on the property in the main house and we are generally there most of the time. We have 2 kids who are primary school aged and love chatting to people.
If it's a quiet, private getaway you need, say no more, we'll try to make ourselves scarce!
Please be aware that if you book during the school holidays it is more than likely my kids will be home and possibly our neighbours kids too as we are very “takes a village to raise a child” in our street and we frequently have them over to play. We do tell them to play quietly however if we have bookings!!
