Daylesford Vacation Rentals

Just booked in Daylesford

One bedroom, self-contained unit set in a lovely garden setting. Elegantly appointed with Asian-inspired and contemporary furniture, the Blue Barn provides the perfect setting for a weekend (or week) getaway in beautiful and historic Daylesford. Original art works and art deco influences complete the picture. Can sleep up to 4 (2 adults and 2 children) with an air mattress in the lounge area.
Set in street within walking distance of the Wombat Botanical Gardens, Cornish Hill and the historic township of Daylesford, the Blue Barn is set on the owner's property and is fully self-contained. The property has 1 bedroom. An additional queen size air mattress is available on request - for children only. The kitchenette is equipped with a bar fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster, coffee plunger and coffee, and a selection of teas. A hair dryer and toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, bodywash) are included and the bathroom has a shower located over a deep bath - ideal for a long soak after a strenous day of walking, eating and drinking! Up to two well behaved dogs are welcome and guests can access an enclosed dog run for when they wish to go out. Dogs are not to be left in the unit unattended unless they can be confined. A small/med dog crate is available on request but no other dog bedding or food is provided. Other dogs reside on the property and I would appreciate notice that you are bringing your furry friends.
The property is set in a quiet residential neighbourhood. It is central to all Daylesford and the surrounding area has to offer including the Lake, Wombat Botanic Gardens, Cornish Hill and the township.
  • Myself and two friends had the pleasure of staying at The Blue Barn for 2 nights last weekend. We absolutely loved our stay and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to spend some time in Daylesford! The barn is absolutely beautiful (inside and out!!), the beds are comfortable, all necessary facilities are available, it's in a great location and Lesley was a wonderful host. We will definitely be back!!

  • Dianne's place was amazing. Beautiful views of the forest and gorgeous design. Unfortunately we missed out of seeing Dianne because we were late to check in and early to check out, but she sent us a text to check that all was going well, which was much appreciated. Beautiful scenery and was a nice and peaceful weekend away. Was just perfect!

    Ashlyn2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great accomodation, nice and secluded, yet 10mins from Daylesford. We stayed there for a wedding and it was perfect. Dianne was very friendly and took great care of us. Highly recommend her accomodation.

    Hannah 2017-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Secluded location, but only 10 or so minutes drive from the heart of Daylesford. A lovely experience driving into the forest to find Dianne's place. :)

  • This house is sublime! If you are looking for a quiet retreat in a bushland setting then this is the place for you. Clean, open plan, Japanese inspired house and studio perfect for a couple who need time out and space, or perfect for a family or bigger group who need the same. Very quiet, tranquil setting. Breakfast and evening wine on the deck essential! 5 min drive out of Daylesford - super handy. We loved it and will be back!

    Open plan spacious 1 bedroom spa villa with fireplace, full kitchen and king sized bed. Shampoo, conditioner & body wash included. Pet Friendly for small charge. Walking distance to Restaurants and shops.
  • Everything is great, but the only one entrance is a fire safety door, which will appear unlocked from the inside, and you might feel unsafe at night.

    YAN2017-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Was a great couple of days away and great place to stay.

    Ray2017-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing villa which was comfortable and cosy. We particularly loved the fireplace and the gorgeous big tub. Well equipped kitchen stocked with everything you need. A perfect getaway retreat for two!

    Emily2017-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • Enjoyed our stay at the villa. It's in a very peaceful and convenient location. We felt that some parts of the villa could do with a little bit of TLC as some areas were a little worn. The cathedral ceiling looks great but the blinds don't cover all of the high windows so if you want a lie in you might struggle (like me!)

    Zoe2016-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome

    Robert2017-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful leafy green spot, in a magical street. Gorgeous floor to ceiling views of the greenery outdoors. Cute little fire for ambience. Comfortable property for a relaxing get away.

    Renee2017-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Shifa is a great host, very responsive and helpful. We had some minor hiccups with some of the amenities but nothing too upsetting. The Villa is walking distance to town and the Hot Springs. The Villa isn't as secluded as we thought it might be and looks straight into some other guest houses but despite that it is very peaceful. We had a lovely night by the fire then enjoyed a very peaceful sleep in the ridiculously comfortable bed. The guest hamper is a nice touch.

    Craig2017-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time, the house is super cozy, the bed is incredible and the hot tube a treat! Shifa helped us and we really appreciate her kindness. We will definitely come back!

    Little Stanley is your own friendly, little country hideaway, yet right in the heart of Daylesford. Awake to a lovely vista down the valley and across the the town. Relax. Pop the cork. Settle in and recharge. Little Stanley is a fully self contained roomy studio. Its toasty warm with a super comfy queen size bed. So peaceful to sit on the deck with your morning coffee and enjoy the kangaroos relaxing in the paddock! Larger group? Please check out our 4 bedroom house CABOOSE also on AIRBNB.
  • Cosy, warm, stylish, somewhat isolated, with an amazing shower, kangaroos nearby (if you're lucky) and close to town.

    Michael2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • We loved everything about our stay in Daylesford. Although it was cold and misty for three days there was so much to do in the district. A visit to the Old Convent Gallery and cafe is a must. Jeff's studio apartment is around the back of an old house at the front that Jeff is still renovating. The free standing studio has been cleverly purpose built. It has an amazing deck across the full width of the building. Set up high, it overlooks the paddock behind and the glorious valley and hills in the distance. Kangaroos grazed in the paddock ... great for visitors from overseas. The setup in the studio is perfect for the size of the building - windows have been cleverly sized and positioned; the ply panelling looks modern and fun; the bed is perfectly placed against the panelled wall that houses the ensuite behind. And the bed was super comfy with crisp white sheets. All in all, we thought Jeff had done a thoughtful and clever job on his studio. Well done. And Jeff was excellent to deal with.

    Margo2017-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Everything we needed for a great weekend away. Jeff went above and beyond to ensure that we ate well and were comfortable. We would recommend Little Stanley to anyone who is looking for a comfortable little place to base themselves while in Daylesford. Thanks Jeff. You were a star.

    Paul2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • We loved Little Stanley! this has been the best place we have stayed on our trip. It was cosy and warm and waking up to the kangaroos and kookaburras in the next door paddock was a treat and we felt like we were definitely in the country. Jeff gave terrific suggestions on where to eat and drink (Surly Goat - had best food by far). Location is great as it was handy to be able to walk into town. Thanks Jeff for the treats you left for us too. We hope to come back soon.

    mindy2017-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at cozy Little Stanley for a frosty winter weekend getaway. The place was warm and inviting and close to everything but still felt hidden away by the valley. Gorgeous views and it was amazing watching the kangaroos play from the window! Thanks so much for having us Jeff and Amanda, we will return :)

    Sahni2017-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • We loved watching the kangaroos outside the house, what a treat! House is well-designed and cosy. Thank you for a great stay!

    Vivian2017-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely little cottage which is perfect for a couple. Walking distance to Daylesford hotel and restaurants.

    Tom2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my family spent a weekend at Little Stanley and everything was perfect. We've got all we needed and had a relaxing stay. The cabin is facing towards an open field which seems to be a place for kangaroos to eat and relax. We loved to wake up in the morning and see the kangaroos roaming in front of the cabin, that was a great experience! Thanks for all Jeff! You've been a great host.

  • When it's 4 degrees outside in the afternoon, arriving to a toasty fire and welcome pack of treats is indeed most welcoming. The photos say it all and I highly recommend this stay to anyone wanting to completely relax. Elizabeth was prompt and thorough in all communication and made for a really easy and totally relaxing stay...wish it was for longer. Many thanks!

  • This place is in a fantastic location and has a lot of character! Everything from the fireplace in the lounge to the spa bath in the bathroom and a great kitchen to cook up a storm with all the local produce around. Beth was a great host, very easy to communicate with and being welcomed by a roaring fire was incredible. Very close to the main strip and the Mill Market at the top of the road.

    Callen2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely break at Beth and Bob's. We enjoyed the luxurious spacbath and the wood fire, the perfect getaway from Melbourne for a few days. It was a lovely home, spotless home, with all necessary amenities and we were very comfortable. It was so easy to get into the centre of Daylesford, and having the Mill Markets at the end of Tiernay Ln was great for the day it rained. Will come again!

    Ellen2017-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I had a wonderful time here. The location is near the heart of Dalesford which was perfect for a nice walk into town. We loved the homely feel and the beautiful food basket set out for us (homemade muffins, wine and snacks). The place was very clean, new and the spa bath was incredible. The fire place was wonderful too. I would defiantly recommend this place to others. Thank you for a fantastic weekend away.

  • My boyfriend and I had the best time in Daylesford, I think it was our favorite place on the Victoria road trip! Monty was the sweetest and most accommodating host. He provided us with a couple apples to feed the neighbor horse in the morning, it was so sweet! I'm just bummed we didn't get to see his art studio because of an early morning start... Next time! The bed was really comfortable, the room spacious, and we felt very safe the entire time. We walked to the local restaurants and bars on Friday night and it reminded me of my hometown of Olympia, Washington. So great. Highly recommend Monty's home for your next vacation!

  • Perfect location! Cozy and warm for a nice winter get away:) loved the courtyard and feeding apples to the hourse at the back fence. Inside the appartment was very clean with a great layout. Very peaceful, perfect for our last little get away before bubs is born.

    Rebecca2017-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Terrific little studio/apartment, very comfortable and close to the centre of town. Monty is a great host with excellent dinner recommendations. The tea/coffee/sugar/milk were especially appreciated, as were the apples to feed the lovely black horse in the adjacent field.

    Grant2017-08-17T00:00:00Z

    A cosy romantic cottage perfect for couples just outside the beautiful spa town of Daylesford in Hepburn Springs. This is the perfect place to unwind and leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind. With beautiful views over Breakneck Gorge and close to restaurants, day spas, Hepburn mineral springs you can either relax on the verandah or get out and discover this beautiful area.
    Upon entering this petite cottage you will be enchanted by the charming blend of interiors combined with modern conveniences and above all else, comfort! "Piccolo" which translates to "little" in Italian lives up to the saying that "Good things come in small packages". Guests will be pleasantly surprised with the myriad of spaces for quiet contemplation and relaxation. Enjoy reading from the balcony or spending lazy days in the sunny courtyard.
    Hepburn Springs is a beautiful spot just minutes from Daylesford in the Central Highlands of Victoria. This little village has lots of wonderful places to explore from a spot of shopping at Portal 108 or fossicking through vintage finds at Found. Enjoy dining from breakfast until dinner at the many cafes, restaurants and pubs in the area and walking through the beautiful bushland that surrounds the town. If you're after something a little more relaxing visit the Hepburn Bathhouse which offer a full array of pampering treatments.
  • Our stay at Mel's beautiful Piccolo was ideal. We had one night in the Hepburn/Daylesford area on a drive from Adelaide to Melbourne and it was exactly what we needed. We had spent the previous night in Halls Gap, and the day hiking, so it was lovely to be able to have a hot shower, a good pub meal across the road, and then chill out in front of the fire with a movie. We woke up and walked 5 minutes down the road to Breakneck Gorge and then on to the Blowhole (2hrs return). It got the heart rate up but wasn't too strenuous, and a great way to start the morning. Communication with Mel was easy and the little additions - wine, chocolates and oats for breakfast were perfect. I couldn't rate our stay more highly and would recommend Piccolo to anyone looking for accommodation in the area!

    Stephanie2017-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic place to stay. Very cosy and great position. We will be back for sure! Thanks Mel.

    Ryan2017-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Piccolo was love at first sight for us. We needed a quiet little place where we can get away from the hustling and bustling. The cottage was extremely cosy and warm, 10-20 mins drive to most tourist attractions and restaurants.

    Yingming2017-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • Cute, cosy and modern cottage only 5 minutes from Daylesford. Mel was a great host and even bought us a bottle of wine and cake for my partners birthday. Highly recommend!

Booking was confirmed on the day and I was allowed to check in earlier. Vera made sure that the house was nice and warm for my arrival and there was some basic necessities like bread, cheese, dips, crackers, milk and drink waiting for me. I went with my pooch and he had a great time too. The yard is nice and wraps around the house. Loved my stay. Will visit again and highly recommend.

    Set in open farmland and surrounded by eucalyptus bush the "Kitchen Cottage" is a free standing, private dwelling adjacent to the old house. Enjoy the relaxing peace and serenity, the views and the walks. Daylesford is just 7 minutes away with excellent cafes, restaurants, interesting stores, spas, and an abundance of outdoor areas to explore. 5 minutes west is our local pub, the " Swiss Mountain Hotel" in Blampied.
    The Kitchen Cottage , formerly the original kitchen and dining room of the homestead, is a free standing rustic brick building adjacent to our home. My great,great grandfather, John Egan, settled here in 1848 and started building Eganshomestead "Kooroonella" (Corinella) in 1857. The family have been here for 6 generations now. There is 120 hectares (300 acreas) of bush and farmland to explore around the homestead. The Indigenous people of the area called this place "Kooroonella" meaning where the kangaroo drinks. There are still many kangaroos on the property that can be viewed morning and evening in this beautiful hilly terrain with gorgeous views in all directions.
    Eganstown is one and a half hours from Melbourne and 7 minutes from Daylesford. The property is a working farm so we have cattle and 2 friendly dogs. All gates must be closed after you. You are welcome to roam around the 120 hectares (300 acreas) through bush, all creeks to the little Corinella waterfall, up hills for great views, to the quaint St Xavier Church and Cemetery and mingle with the wallabies, kangaroos and birds along the way. There are areas that can be wet and rough so good walking shoes, boots or gumboots are recommended. This area is 600 metres above sea level and gets cold, especially in the evenings. Bring warm clothes.
  • We had a lovely relaxed stay at Kate's Kitchen Cottage. The cottage is well appointed and comfortable. We enjoyed a sleep-in and wandered around the property after breakfast taking in the views. Kate is a great host. A great place for a break.

    N2017-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had really lovely weekend at Kate's place. The cottage is charming, well-equipped and very comfortable, and we had great walk around the property with the dogs! However Kate's hospitality was what really made the weekend. She was extremely welcoming and friendly and gave us some great tips, including for a winery that we definitely wouldn't have stumbled across otherwise, and provided a lovely breakfast hamper with homemade bread, yoghurts and jams. Would absolutely recommend the Kitchen Cottage for a peaceful weekend :)

    Vicky2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location every comfort was provided home made bread etc. Kate is a perfect host warm kind and totally obliging and then there are the two welcoming darling dogs...will be going back for sure...well done Kate

    Michael2017-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Kate was a delightfully welcoming host; with just the right blend of friendliness and respect for privacy. The gorgeos breakfast goodies were a testament to local produce. The self-contained, separate Kitchen Cottage is authentically original and the modern convenieces in no way detract from this. We would love to return when we have more time, as we are keen to take a wander around the property and really soak up the country air and tranquility. Absolutely close enough to Daylesford to fully enjoy all that town has to offer, but with a serenity that is not possible to experience in town.

    Jacqui2017-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks so much for having us, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Your beautiful historic cottage is very cozy, clean, light filled and peaceful and is in a great location to explore Daylesford (11mins by car) and surrounds. This was a perfect mini escape from Melbourne, we even sighted kangaroos. Thanks for your hospitality and generosity and for the beautiful breakfast; all sourced from local produce. We will definitely return for a longer stay.

    Penny2017-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • Kate is a gorgeous, warm host and her space is delightful! The accommodation is cosy and inviting on a great property offering lots of opportunity for exploritory wanders. We loved staying here for our first wedding anniversary weekend. Thank you, Kate!

  • Kate's place is an adorable little cottage. It has everything you need. We loved the cute decor and old fashioned style. It is extremely peaceful and relaxing if you want to get away from the city life, but also less than 10 minute drive to Daylesford. Kate was an amazing host. Super friendly and provided us with lots of information about the area and a delicious home made breakfast. Her dogs are super playful and love people. We had a great time! Thank you Kate!

    Michael2017-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. We received a warm welcome from Kate who gave us a tour of the cottage and provided a basket with ample breakfast provisions including homemade jams, bread , yogurts etc. The accommodation was as described with comfortable bedding and living space.

  • We really enjoyed staying at the Wombat Barn. Great central location, very close walking distance to cafes, botanical gardens and a short walk to town and more eateries. The accommodation was great, and exceeded expectations. Everything was as described, and there were some extra touches which made the stay even better - heaters turned on, extra woolen blankets and homemade chocolate biscuits. Great hosts, who were welcoming, responded quickly to questions, and were happy to provide advice on local places.

    Johanna2015-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely place to stay in Daylesford. Close enough to walk into town, but far enough out to be quite peaceful - the only noise was the morning birds!!

    Catherine2016-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved the wombat barn! Nice and cosy for a cold weekend and in a great location really close to all the local shops and restaurants. Jenni was a great host, we will definitely be back again.

Shops are very close and main street is just a short walk down the road. Would highly recommend the Wombat Barn to anyone!

    Jessie2017-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • I've (sadly) just returned from a fantastic few days at Jenni and Jennie's beautifully appointed and conveniently located wombat barn Guest House. It's clear this place is a labour of love - not just the barn itself, but their magnificent edible garden surrounding it. The kitchenette is well equipped with a coffee machine, kettle, toaster and a small fridge. Fresh milk, a jar of delicious muesli, butter, marmalade, tea and coffee made for some lovely additional touches. Jenni and Jennie were really friendly, warm and helpful - the perfect hosts. Highly recommend if you want a tranquil escape to unwind and relax.

    Tanya2017-01-05T00:00:00Z

    True to Daylesford's Charm, Canary Cottage is as cute as a button with today's modern day features.
    This beautiful 90 year old homestead has been sympathetically renovated so our guests can enjoy a special Daylesford experience with today's modern home facilities provided. With a mixture of old and new, Canary Cottage is a delightful place for that romantic week-end for two, or to host that great girls week-end away. Ideally located in a quiet location, walking distance to the beautiful Wombat Botanical Gardens, The Convent Gallery and a short stroll to many other popular Daylesford favorites. The main street is a pleasant 10 minute walk so no need to take the car out at night. Walking through the cottage you will be delighted with the sun-drenched rear living room. With plenty of space to relax in front of the fireplace or curl up in the afternoon with a good book. Host a private dinner party which we can recommend a local chef to come and cook for you or have a fun-filled BBQ in the large garden setting at the rear. The modern kitchen is fully equipped for all of your needs. Boosting two generous bedrooms with the main bedroom hosting it's own ensuite. The main bathroom has a large bath and a spacious walk-in shower. We look forward to you staying at our property and enjoying the many wonderful culinary delights that Daylesford has to offer. The property will be available from the 15th October 2015.
  • The canary cottage with it's yellow front door is the cutest house on the street. As soon as you walk in, you feel at home. We cooked dinner on our first night and there is plenty of cook wear to do so. Our second night Lois gave us suggestions on where to go for dinner and lunch. The house doesn't take long to warm up with the fire place and also heaters in each room. There is also plenty of blankets for extra cosy. Our second night we played some of the gameboards that were supplied. The cottage isn't to far from centre of town and anywhere else you would like to go. There is a lot to do in Daylesford and we wish we had more time there. Have already recommended staying at canary cottage to lots of our friends.

The log fire is easy to start and maintain and is perfect for the colder months. We are dog lovers. Our own dogs, Cooper and Chops love Lady Marmalade and so we have created our home to welcome well behaved dogs and owners. The home is not suited to large boisterous dogs (sorry). The back yard is dog proof with secure gates. We ask you to follow our house rules concerning your fur babies. The garden is our pride and joy. Guests are welcome to pick and use our edible garden treats while they are with us. Our fire pit is also a perfect place to sit around during the not so cold months. Smoking is permitted outside only.
    Lady Marmalade is located in a peaceful part of Daylesford far from main roads. She is only a 5 minute walk to the Main Street of Daylesford and 10 minutes to the Lake. The Main Street of Daylesford is host to many restaurants, bars, a couple of pubs, cafes and great shopping. The famous Farmers Arms Hotel and The Lake house is a 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive. Art galleries, wine bars and the convenience of a large supermarket are in the main shopping area. Daylesford and Hepburn Springs (5 minute drive) is in the heart of the Mineral Springs district and is host to many wonderfully luxurious day spas and retreats. The area also has many walks / hikes that can range from 1 to 8 hours.
  • We knew from the moment that we opened the front door that this was somewhere very special. Lady Marmalade has been furnished to the highest standard and shows James' sense of style and fun! In the middle of Winter, this cosy cottage provided a toasty haven within easy walking ( we were guilty of driving the 2 mins!) to some fabulous shops in Vincent street ( Art Deco and French Provençal a plenty) as well as some great cafes. James' helpful guidelines to the local area also ensured that we weren't wasting time wondering which cafe had the best coffee - on his recommendation we headed straight for The Larder and weren't disappointed. This is a first class , 10/10 property in every way from the beautiful linens, rain shower, spa bath, fireplace, Smeg appliances - and the artwork choices which are clever and fun. You know that you somewhere really special when the thought of changing the locks and closing the curtains crosses your mind!

  • One of the best AirBnB i've ever stayed at! James is very easy to communicate with and answers all requests very quickly. The house is awesome - with a very comfortable bed and an amazing master ensuite bathroom. Lovely views over the hills of Daylesford from the balcony!

    Gregory2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • We cannot fault Lady Marmalade!! The accomodation was beyond stunning, super cosy and had EVERYTHING we needed. It was very close to the town centre and the host was very friendly and organised. Thank you so much for a relaxing weekend away! We hope to return again some day :)

    Alyce2017-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and warm house, beautiful garden and views. Quiet street. Close shops and cafés. Well equipped kitchen and excellent heating. Would stay again.

    Jemimah2017-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • The Lady is a sheer delight. Every touch is thoughtful and makes it a wonderful home away from home; kindling in the fire, scented candles, great artwork. The fitout is luxurious and tasteful-shutters and curtains, generous bathrooms, cosy linen. Even the central heating vents are lovely. Hart's Lane is a nice walk from the centre of town but yet so quiet. Highly recommended.

    Louise2017-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • Lady Marmalade was an absolute treat! Communication with James made organising our trip a breeze, and the house itself was perfect for our girls getaway. Would highly recommend Lady Marmalade to anyone looking for a relaxing retreat with a little bit of luxury!

    Johanna2017-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • Exquisite. An absolutely magnificent stay at Lady Marmalade. A stunning cottage with everything you need and more to have a gorgeous experience. I loved the high quality bed, soft furnishings and the beautiful scented candles found throughout the styled to perfection house. The main bathroom is to die for and the bed is something else! Drinking my coffee and walking around the garden in the morning was a real treat, as was the champagne under the stars on the deck. I cannot fault Lady Marmalade, or the effort James has gone to to provide guests with a high end, cosy and warm cottage. I cannot wait to return, and highly recommend Lady Marmalade to anyone wanting to travel to Daylesford. Thank you James!

    Melissa2017-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed at many Airbnbs in Australia and internationally and this is the best one we have ever stayed at as everything was perfect. Shortly after booking, the host was very responsive and provided all the information we needed. We arrived and parked under a dedicated carport. Entered a beautiful house with 2 gorgeous bedrooms and bathrooms, spacious living room and kitchen area, and a massive enclosed backyard with an amazing garden. The place was spotless and extremely clean, especially all the towels, linen and pillows. The eye catching and special thing about this place is the styling. The styling is immaculate and most importantly not over the top. This place is perfect and we will be definitely staying here again.

    The Daylesford-Hepburn Region is famous for its mineral waters and is known as the Spa Centre of Australia. Our beautiful scenery includes the famous Lake Daylesford, the Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens and the Wombat State Forest. There are historic buildings in the main street of Daylesford and the region’s history lies in the rush for gold. Lake Daylesford now covers land upon which gold was first discovered and offers lakeside picnic spots, cafes, walking tracks, fishing and pedal boating. The internationally known Lake House sits on its shores and there are public BBQ facilities and amenities adjacent to the main parking area. Lake Jubilee is located south of Daylesford (about a 10-15 minute drive) and is ideal for fishing, boating and swimming. If you are looking for a waterfall, visit Sailor’s Falls, less than 30 minutes south from the Daylesford Town Centre. If you are into the outdoors, Daylesford sits at the junction of three walking trails that are part of the Great Dividing Trail – the Lerderderg Track, the Dry Diggings Track and the Wallaby Track. The Hepburn Regional Park is a little less challenging and contains mineral springs and relics of the bygone gold era. There is much to do in Daylesford and the region hosts a variety of festivals through-out the year, including Chill Out, Harvest and the Swiss Italian Festival. For those looking for art, visit the Convent Gallery or a host of smaller studios. If you want to wander, the local Daylesford Market is held each Sunday next to the Daylesford railway station. The monthly market is hosted at the Daylesford Primary School grounds. There are local wineries all around us and great restaurants and cafes to choose from in both Daylesford and Hepburn Springs, whether you are looking for a light lunch or a dinner boasting regional produce.
  • Wonderful! The bath was heaven and the natural surrounds were just what we needed after a busy year. This was our first time in Daylesford and we loved it! 20-30 min walk to the main strip (not recommended in the heat/humidity!) or a few mins drive. Cute shops, locally owned restaurants and country pubs. Loved it all!

    Cas2016-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great experience, texts & emails received confirming dates, addresses & arrival times.

    Blair2016-05-23T00:00:00Z

    Sarah2017-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Breathtaking property! It was just what we wanted to celebrate our 1st year anniversary, a nice secluded romantic place. It was lovely to be given some essentials to cook up breakie, just to add to the fun and romance. Very clean, set out like a dream on arrival. Very thoughtful by providing 2 sets of towels, 1 set for the bath and 1 set for the shower. Definitely coming back and have bragged about it to everyone. Thank you

    Karolina2015-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Loved the outdoor spaces

    Sally2017-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, and great communication, and all the extra touches that were offered really made it just that much more an amazing experience while here. We also loved lighting up a real fireplace, turning on the bathtub, and listening to all the beautiful country sounds in the evening. We woke up to gorgeous views all around, feeling very cozy in the middle of a beautiful countryside escape, yet very close to the main town as well.

    Tino & Chris2016-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Walking into this delicious villa, we found unexpected goodies such as wine, chocolate, beer and breakfast necessities. Such a lovely touch to make us feel welcome. The fire place with the bath was just perfect and it truly does not get much more relaxing then that! The neighbourhood is very quiet and great for clearing head space. The sound of the birds and the fire cracking, it's just the best!!! We ate at a fantastic Thai place the first night! We were fed so well the entire trip and Daylesford has definitely got it going on in the food department. Perfect for a mini break.

    Bell2016-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Really loved the cottage. We went when I was snowing and the stove and split system were fantastic at keeping it cosy. Lots of goodies provided free of charge and the town was easy accessible. We will definitely be booking again when we are in Daylesford! .... And the bath is even better than it looks!!

  • Had a very pleasant stay in the local area, enjoyed the close proximity to the town centre, the shops and cafes. Very close to the lake and all the great walks and springs on offer.

  • Great location - so close to the Main Street and an incredibly comfortable and well laid out property. The spa bath is very luxurious. Our hosts were very friendly and we had everything we needed for our two night stay. The only negative was the sound of the hosts who live above the rental property walking around in their house which was quite constant and audible in the rental property below.

    Deborah2016-08-23T00:00:00Z

  • Thank you Rachael for sharing your amazing home with us! We had a truly relaxing week staying in your well thought-out and beautifully decorated house. Zahalka House truly felt like a home - which we didn't realise we were looking for until after we arrived. Each room held a new treasure trove of paintings, trinkets and books to keep us busy and when not engrossed in these, we loved sitting out on the back deck listening to the quiet and breathing in the country air. On a practical level, we had everything that we needed from kitchen utensils to hair dryers to plush towels. I especially liked the special touch of supplying ugh boots. Rachael - you were also very easy to communicate with we thank you for doing absolute best to source a high chair for us at the last minute. Thanks again - we won't forget our stay in Zahalka House any time soon!

    We love where we live! We are close to many beautiful areas to explore, while being secluded. On clear nights the stars are intense. We can see the skies all around, the mountains and hills, the forests and waterways. Nearby is a local, family run winery and organic vegetable farm and a fantastic local pub. Daylesford and the surrounding hamlets offer a vast array of restaurants, cafes, galleries, local artisans, spa treatments, markets, festivals and events most weekends.

  • Linda and Brett were so welcoming and warm! as soon as we arrived Brett showed us around the cottage and introduced us to the friendly resident Feline welcoming party. We were very excited to see the fire was already going for us and an afternoon Vegan snack already prepared also. The home was beautifully decorated and felt warm and cozy, clean but lived in which is exactly what you want when looking for a comfortable stay! We had a wonderful time, and Linda was always around when and if we needed her and provided some local eats advice for us which was great! We will definitely be staying again it was a beautiful home away from home! Thank you for a wonderful stay Linda and Fam! :) Ali & Rylee

  • Linda, along with Brett, were very accommodating hosts and are very happy to talk about the area and what there is to do. The amount of contact we had with them was amazing as they are very quick to get back to you. The cottage was stunning to say the very least. My girlfriend and i arrived late on Friday so waking up to the amazing views of the Forrest made for the perfect getaway. also waking up and eating the breakfast provided was incredible, everything was so fresh and full of flavor. I also highly recommend taking a nice long walk through the Forrest as you see so much varied wildlife. My girlfriend and i will definitely come back to stay at this wonderful cottage

  • Amazing views and a very cosy cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay.

    Jason2017-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • It was lovely to arrive at the house and see animals around like horses, sheep, kangaroos, and chickens. The host, Linda, gave a little tour around the house and even prepared a welcome pack with fruits, yogurt, bread and crackers. Love the living area with the fireplace.. especially during the winter!

A place where you feel both at home and in awe of your spa villa surroundings, which include luxuries like an imported French fireplace, Italian Washplane sinks, Apaiser stone baths, decadent wooden floors, high beamed ceilings and wraparound windows that showcase nature from every room. WONDERFUL ARCHITECTURE & ENTERTAINMENT Bespoke architecture and opulent amenities are common to our three retreats, but each also offers something special…a one-of-a-kind treat. In Serenity, pamper your body in the Japanese-engineered Inada Sogno, a heavenly seat that melds to your body and delivers the world’s best shiatsu massage. Tranquility trades sensual indulgence for platinum entertainment with the Ultra Platinum Pro arcade game console, boasting a 26” inch screen for up to 4 player simultaneous game play. Evoke rewards your inner geek with the STERN Lord of the Rings pinball machine, where you’re challenged to create, then destroy The One Ring. These quirky amenities are completely unique to Clifftop at Hepburn…you won’t find them at any other retreat in the world. THE ULTIMATE ROMANTIC ESCAPE Perfectly tailored to romantic getaways and exclusive group escapes, Clifftop at Hepburn was created for sophisticated travellers who value high design, natural beauty and wellness with an indulgent twist.

Book a private retreat, or share the space (and the cost) with friends. No other luxury Hepburn retreat is as spacious or as flexible as Clifftop. IMAGINE A "LIFE LESS ORDINARY" So just imagine. Imagine a leisurely evening in your private spa, sipping champagne to the backdrop of surround sound and a crackling fireplace. Imagine each night falling asleep to a towering wall of stars and waking each morning to sunbeams welcoming dramatic views. Imagine a retreat where you leave real life at the door, choosing instead to lounge in the lap of luxury…a moment in time dedicated to wellness and healthy living. A moment in time dedicated to you.

An escape where flames flicker in a hand-hewn fireplace and daybeds hang suspended in thin air.

  • We loved the retreat so much, we booked another night. Wish it could of been more.

    Cate2016-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here with two teenage boys just after Christmas and if you know any teenage boys you'll know how hard they are to please and they loved it.l as soon as they walked through the door. They were super impressed. A call from the owners before we arrived to check our arrival was really appreciated., The main living area is perfect for relaxing. Spots for reading and taking in the stunning view and a great sofa fir watching the many Tv/film options needed when you mix teenagers with rainy days. We enjoyed many games of connect 4 just one of the games provided and we all enjoyed a massage from the chair. Lovely bottle of bubbles on arrival another again when we had a minor issue. That was dealt with immediately by the way. I had a bath in both rooms and both were very special. The beds and linen are very luxurious and comfortable. We really wanted for nothing. We are both in the design business and gent many of the choices we could see making ourselves. We really loved our stay here and without doubt would stay again and recommend. It's great for families but would work equally well if not better for two couples or a romantic weekend. Daylesford and Hepburn springs is a very special place. We even visited friends and realised from our view we when we got back could see their farm on the hill. Wonderful Air B n B experience

    Christopher2016-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at the Clifftop at Hepburn was superb. David was a welcoming host and we couldn't have wished for a more hassle free one night stay. The accommodation is as impressive in person as it looks online, fabulous. We will return!

    Maria2016-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • 5***** beautiful in every aspect. Great communication. We were able to forget the world for a weekend in this property.

    Sahar2017-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Location and view, amazing! Exceeded all expectations, and was a great romantic escape! Will definitely be back again.

    Jamee2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • We were quite fortunate to secure a booking at short notice on days which suited and the opportunity was too good to pass based on the reviews. Had immediate confirmation from David and great correspondence in the lead up to our stay. The property was everything described and more and while you might feel compelled to explore the area, don't waste too much time just get back and relax! Loved the massage chair, weird feeling at first but then just lay back and let it work its magic. Met David on checking out which was good to be able to do that. Highly recommend.

    Paul2016-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic accommodation! Lovely spot and even better facilities. The house was brand new, beautiful modern finishes with a cosy feel. David and Mani were both very attentive and check in and out was a breeze. Couldn't fault the place, will certainly be back. Thanks!

    Peter2016-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • What an incredible space Mani and David have created. Tranquil and relaxing with floor to ceiling windows to allow you to be mesmerised by the view. The massage chair was a lovely treat and we found that Clifftop truly had everything we needed to lock ourselves away for nothing but relaxation.

    Our place is 20 acres of forest and is close to Daylesford. It backs onto the Wombat State Forest.. You’ll love our place because of the cosiness and, the location: it's a treehouse! Our place is good for couples and single travellers who are looking for a tranquil setting. One or both of us will be here at all times to help you if needed. Our home is open for those who want to connect so let's have a chat.
    In the treehouse we've provided tea and coffee making facilities and a bar fridge.
    Daylesford is known for its spas and culinary delights. We live 10 minutes out of town so if you are coming from overseas we can give you directions to get to Daylesford and then one of us can pick you up and bring you here.
  • Absolutely incredibly beautiful oasis sanctuary, something we never knew imaginable. The treehouse is ever better in person and provided everything and more! Onri, Risalind and tigers hospitality really made our anniversary more special than ever and we are both eternally great full. From the Japanese cultured exterior to the beautiful breakfast in bed, would not only recommend but encourage everyone to stay here. Can't wait till we stay again!!!

    Steph2017-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • We greatly enjoyed staying in this delightful little tree house, sleeping under the stars in comfort. It was cosy and warm even though it was very cold outside. Onri and Rosalind were warm, welcoming and friendly.

    Peter2017-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wow what an amazing place , thank you Onri and Rosalind for a beautiful stay. From the start of our stay till when we left we felt pampered and relaxed. The treehouse is stunning. We where even given breakfast in bed. The little touches flowers in vases and on the towels , the atmosphere and location where so relaxing and welcoming. I would highly recommend to visit this special place.

    Vivian2017-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Onri and Rosalind are fantastic hosts, genuinely nice people and did a great job of making our stay a memorable one. The treehouse is a wonderful space to spend the night when in Daylesford. We will never stay anywhere else when we return!

    Liam2017-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • It's an experience that you will remember for the rest of your life

    Isaiah2017-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Rosalind and Onri are friendly, considerate, kind. They are easily one of the best hosts I ever had. They also keep the place very clean and comfortable to stay in. Highly recommended as a place to spend some tranquil time away from life business.

    Kek2017-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place is actually so fun. If you are thinking about a getaway in this beautiful area ~ look no further. Such a chill vibe. Onri is quite possibly the coolest dude I've ever met. Would HIGHLY recommend x

    Liz2017-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Onri, I can't tell you how excited I was when Alicia told me we were booked in to stay in your treehouse and it was far from disappointing. It was an absolutely gorgeous and comfortable little home for the weekend surrounded by the beautiful flora & fauna. Aside from the treehouse, your hospitality and generosity was nothing short of amazing. The whole weekend we felt like we had known you forever, we felt extremely loved, accepted and at home. Thank you so very much brother Till next time, Peace Ps. Andrew insisted he wanted to write it Pps. I agree with every single word, thank you so much. Can't wait till you come down the coast!

Despite from that, everything else was perfect and I must say that I LOVE THE SPA!! Definately would come back if i visit Daylesford again!

    Wai2016-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • From the moment we opened the door we were in a haven of romantic luxury. The warm fire place made the space instantly welcoming. Every little thing came together for the ultimate couples retreat. A spa bath to relax in, cute rom coms, great (see-cheesy) cds to play and rom coms to watch! To top it all off - the comfiest bed I have ever slept in! I can not wait to go back!

    katie2015-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • On arrival at Ashlar it was everything we expected! Beautifully presented living up to the photos. After getting engaged earlier that day it was a fantastic start to our romantic weekend away, we really enjoyed relaxing in front of the gas fire and watching the movies provided. Really close to the town centre and local activities (weekend markets). Only down fall for us was noise neighbours on the first night which was quickly rectified by the host after contacting her (thank you!), absolutely no other downfalls. Ashlar is just lovely, we would definitely recommend to our friends.

    Brendan2016-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I were in need of a romantic getaway and Manna Gums didn't disappoint. Sally is an excellent host. Communication was clear and easy. Breakfast was provided and she had the fire going for our arrival. The bed was very comfortable and the apartment was very clean. I would highly recommend staying here.

    Daniel2015-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Sally was so helpful and quick to respond to my last minute request to book this property. She went out of her way to provide additional information about Daylesford, which really enhanced the overall experience. The fire was on, with Michael Buble playing in the background upon arrival, which was such a sweet touch. Location is also fantastic, property is just as pictured. Would definitely recommend staying here if ever visiting this gorgeous part of the world. Thanks again Sally for all of your help :)

    Gabrielle2015-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Our quick getaway at the Ashlar in Daylesford was gorgeous. The place has everything you could want - and is very comfortable. It stayed really cool on some very hot days. It's very walkable to the town, the Daylesford Hotel being a great place to get a pub meal and watch the sunset. Despite being on a major road, inside it remained quiet. My only gripe was that we struggled to get vodafone / optus mobile reception inside, a minor thing when the scenery is as spectacular as it was.

    Daniel2016-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Manna Gums was the perfect destination for our anniversary. It was a beautifully presented, cozy, romantic setting, perfect for a weekend away! Definitely highly recommended! Would love to return for another relaxing experience. Thank you once again Sally =)

    Rachel2015-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Such an amazing place to live in for a short getaway. Everything was prepared so wonderfully from the fireplace being lit up to having music playing upon arrival. Sally 's a wonderful host and we'll be sure to come back again next time when visiting daylesford

  • This is our second stay at Amanda and it was just as great as our first stay. Caitlin is a wonderful host, keeping in contact right up until we arrived and nothing seemed too much trouble for her. The house is just lovely and the location is great. We would certainly recommend staying at Amanda if you are visiting Daylesford.

  • We enjoyed a great week at Caitlin's with our dog. House is comfortable and has everything you need. It's in a great spot to walk to town for breakfast or dinner.

    Sarah2017-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at "Amanda" was fantastic. Caitlin has renovated the house to a very high standard and the furnishings and fittings complement the style of the house. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need for cooking. The beds are very comfortable, with quality linen supplied. Lovely soft white towels in the bathroom & a heated towel rail for those chilly mornings. Communication with Caitlin was excellent. We look forward to returning to Daylesford & spending a few days relaxing at "Amanda House". Thank you Caitlin.

    Sheryl2017-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • What a gorgeous place to stay! Close walk to everything in Daylesford. Beautiful home, spacious, stylish and welcoming. Caitlin was so easy to communicate with. Highly recommended!!

    Karen2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Caitlin was very accommodating of us on such short notice. She was very easy to get hold of and responded promptly to all queries/comments. She was very helpful and there were plenty of instructions and lots of information available in the house (which was heated prior to our arrival). House is in a great situation - walking distance to shops. Huge kitchen and eating area and the rest of the house was equally spacious. All the rooms were beautifully furnished and exceptionally comfortable - the ideal holiday house. Car access to the house is via a lane at the rear of the property (not sure if there would be room for two cars in the car port but was fine for our hatchback sedan). There's also plenty of parking available on the street out the front of the house. Overall it was a fantastic stay for us. We highly recommend this property and would definitely stay again. Thank you Caitlin!

    Meghan2016-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Place was great. Clean and tidy and as described. Would definitely stay again

  • "Amanda" was a perfect place for a get away! Quite, relaxing, warm, and very cosy, our family (including dog) will certainly book again. Felt very much at home with everything provided for. Hosts were easy to contact before and during stay.
