  • Delightful place in the middle of a beautiful and very green area. The birds came to visit at the bird feeder every morning. Shellie was a lovely host, and provided a basket of fresh and tasty breakfast materials on the first day. With a comfortable bed, fun spa, warm heater, double-shower, handy little kitchen, it had everything we needed for a marvellous holiday.

  • Chudleigh Park is a beautiful haven that really allows your brain to reset. Shellie is a thoughtful and friendly host but will give you your privacy. The views are lovely and location is very close to a popular hiking trail and village.

    Allison2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Shellie was an amazing host! The room is lovely with plenty of space for a romantic couples getaway. The breakfast basket was a lovely touch with some really amazing goodies! Definitely worth staying here!

  • It was lovely to stay is such a beautiful cottage with a fabulous host to look out for us! The birds were stunning and we will definitely be back if we are ever in the area again 💕 Sheridan and Andrew

    Sheridan2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The location is beautiful and we were provided with so much great food for our stay. The local birds kept us company which was very cool.

    Cody2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely location and gorgeous cottages! Overlooking secluded woods you share the beautiful grounds with kookaburras, cockatoos and birds of many colours. Just 2 mins walk to the gorgeous village of Sassafras, yet you feel a million miles from civilisation. This was our second stay and we will be back!

    Rob2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I had an amazing time away here. The breakfast hamper was full of delicious food and fresh juice and milk. Everything in the hamper had been locally sourced. We enjoyed feeding the rosella’s and parrots by our back door. The property is super simple to find and is just off the main drag. If we were back in the area we would come back before looking elsewhere.

    Rowan2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and clean cottage. Great amenitites and thoughtful touches, especially with the amazing breakfast!

  • What an amazing place! Great location, beautiful landscaping and a great host. Thank you

    Nat2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Billabong falls was the perfect, peaceful enviroment to spend my wedding morning and start my new life with my Husband. Sarah went above and beyond... bread baking on arrival, asking us what milk we drink, chocolates, wine, fruit... and lets not forget that waterfall! Billabong falls will forever hold such beautiful memories to us and we're already making excuses to come again.

    Jazmine2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • This amazing home is located in the centre of a forest, with spectacular views, unique amenities and immaculate styling. Sarah really is a super host, who went above and beyond to make our stay incredible. This has been the best Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in (both in Aus and even internationally). Sarah is incredibly thoughtful, hospitable and quick to reply. You won’t find another home like it.

    Erin2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Even though the photos for this place are incredible, they still don’t do any justice to just how magical, majestic and serene this property truly was. From the moment we arrived, we were captured by the beautiful calm it provided and had the best time relaxing and switching off from the world for a while. We had the best sleep in ages in the incredibly comfortable beds and we can’t wait to return in the winter to make use of the fireplace. Unexpected touches of fresh fruit and local tips on our personal interests were fantastic and even the unseasonal rain couldn’t stop us from swimming in the pool!

    Nella2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at billabong falls, as so many have said before me from the moment you walk in you feel at home with music playing and the smell of freshly baked bread in the air it was a gorgeous welcome and my friend couldn't wait to have a beautiful hot piece of bread with melted butter! I loved the fact that on a warm night you can just leave the fly wire doors in the bedrooms open and let the cool air in while hearing the sound of the waterfall just outside! The host was always quick to reply and did everything she could to solve any issues. I highly recommend a stay here, you will enjoy every part of staying in this beautiful house!

    Rebecca2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Billabong Falls is an enchanting space, with the most hospitable of hosts. Thank you for the charming breakfast food, the music, the thoughtfulness. I loved the opportunity to be surrounded by nature without having to leave the property, and to feel like every space provided a new and different experience. From the large glass windows opening up onto the mountain ash, to the balconies giving audience to birdsong, the soothing natural pool and my favourite of all the grounding outdoor shower... Finally the sustainable design spoke of a respect for nature that made my heart happy. We loved out stay here.

    Tina2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A little gem in nature. For family with kids, bring a binocular for bird watching :)

    Han2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully located, nice and clean with lots of small touches that really make it memorable. As others have said, the smell of fresh bread greeted us when we arrived and truly set the pace of what we could expect for the rest of our stay. Beautiful garden and plenty of options for activities depending on the weather. We were there during the week and as the host admits, there are cars coming and going from the driveway but we noticed that once the office workers realised we were up and about, the blinds got pulled down and we felt like it was quite private, so no complaints about that as I feel the experience was true to what the host said. Sarah was very responsive to all questions etc and was very accommodating. 100% recommend staying here and will highly likely be staying here again myself.

  • Lovely relaxing space in the heart of the Dandenong's. Very enjoyable.

    Ash2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing time here! We loved the view from the spa bath and all the small touches added throughout the place. Would definitely recommend staying here if you are looking for a private get away.

    Justyna2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Coorabell Retreat is a fantastic forest getaway and the perfect place to unplug and refresh. This converted barn looks rustic from the outside but provides all modern creature comforts on the inside. William and Penny thoughtfully provided wine and chocolates and had music playing on our arrival which was a lovely touch. The breakfast food provided was also welcomed and bed supremely comfortable. The extra touch came from us seeing three inquisitive Rosellas hanging around the front of the building and then realising there was bird food in the kitchen, giving us an opportunity to feed and enjoy their company even more! Comfortable in summer with airconditioning in the property, it would also be nice in winter with the fireplace roaring in the living area. The property is so secluded and well hidden (but still easy to find) that we didn't even need to blinds at night to have the real "night in the forest" feel. Hopefully will be back again!

    Mark2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place to stay. We didn’t have one bad thing to say it was just so nice and relaxing plus romantic. We will be back for sure

  • I only spent 1 night at Poppy's but I wished it had been longer. Audrey has set up such a wonderful space for her guests - a cosy, well equipped caravan, a massive deck, a gorgeous hot tub area and a bathroom that ticks all of the boxes. Lots of different seating options, a generous supply of towels and blankets, and a very thoughtful touch of sparkling wine and chocolates on arrival. Communication with Audrey was easy and prompt, and the location is great. I was blessed with amazing weather whilst I was there and was able to utilize all spaces. Thanks for a perfect little getaway Audrey!

    Christine2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Audrey's place is a MUST DO when heading to Mt Dandenong. It was the perfect location and only a short walk into the Olinda township and cuckoo restaurant too. Audrey made personal little touches that made this stay the most memorable stay I have ever had. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone.

    Chris2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • I’d say my best air bnb stay! Everything was perfect. Would definitely be back. Such an unique stay! You wouldn’t wanna miss this.

    Lelanga2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I had a great stay at Poppy’s Caravan. There were some lovely touches on arrival for my girlfriend’s birthday. The weather was really good so we were able to make use of the day bed in the sun and relax. The spa was perfect later on. Would definitely recommend to anyone who’s looking for a relaxing weekend away. Thanks!

    Shaun2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Audrey was very accomodating and made a very unique experience for an anniversary

    Isaak2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cute place to stay. Really welcoming as you arrive and set up perfectly for a nice a relaxing night. Walking distance to some shops and a blueberry farm down the rd if you want to hand pick yourself some during the summer months. Overall a great experience.

    Miranda2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect little spot in a beautiful place for a couple to have a get away! Audrey made the place very homey and had some lovely finishing touches like the bottle of wine and chocolates. Unfortunately for us it rained all weekend but would be amazing when the sun is shining 😊

    Ashley2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Poppy's caravan was a wonderful get away :) The bed is comfortable, the caravan is cute, it has all the amenities you need, the deck area is awesome, trees everywhere with fairy lights on them - magical! The bathroom is amazing, modern and private, and the spa is to die for!! Sooooo.... very very relaxing. Jets that make you feel fantastic, with trees overhead - so, so good. Very close to Olinda and the Botanical Gardens - great location. Also, lots of day spas close by where they offer massages and so on - next time I will be doing that too. Oh yes, there was cold sparkling wine and Lindt chocolate on arrival. We highly recommend Audrey as a terrific host and her caravan and spa as a great place to relax and unwind. Thank you Audrey.

  • This is an excellent getaway, and feels like a forest retreat. I stayed here with my mum and sister and it was perfect for us. Just be prepared for the stairs up to the house and a steep driveway. There is plenty of space for relaxation inside and out!

    Jasmine2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Troys's it was such a beautiful place, in a gorgeous setting. It had music, tv, comfy sofa and beds and an awesome coffee machine and the internet was fast. We loved it and will be back thanks so much!!!

    Jessica2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • The second we walked through the front door of Troy’s place we felt really comfortable. This place has a really nice vibe and is full of character. The space is uniquely decorated and the plants throughout add that little extra touch. The backyard and patio area are the perfect space to fire up the BBQ and enjoy the afternoon. We loved our short stay here and would definitely stay again.

    Mel2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing home stay surrounded by nature. The garden is breathtaking, with native plants and introduced species harmoniously arranged. Within the house is everything needed for a pleasant, invigorating experience. Very stylish decor. There are dozens of amenities installed, all thoughtfully included. Clean and cosy, I highly recommend visiting. Be aware the land is steep, with many steps, though this actually added to it's uniqueness. Five stars.

    Miki2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house in a magical setting. Lovely, relaxing outdoor area with a brilliant outlook.

    Shiry2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Host response fast, stay suitable for those who like to surround with a lot of trees and plants, feel comfortable and warm in the morning when sunshine come in but if got big luggage bag need to carry up few steps of staircase, others than this, everything’s GOOD .

    Huey Wun2019-11-22T00:00:00Z

    Quiet, private bungalow set in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges trees. Wake to the sounds of parrots, cockatoos and kookaburras in the bush. Our charming guest house includes bedroom, bathroom, breakfast amenities and outside courtyard. Within easy reach of bus and rail stops and the restaurants, cafes and bars of the mainstreet of Belgrave. Suitable for singles or couples. People from all backgrounds are welcome but please, no smoking and no pets. Please note that the driveway is quite steep.
    Surrounded by lush bushlands and slightly elevated to take in the gorgeous vistas and the very best of the Dandenong Ranges. Coronavirus I would like to assure my guests that I take the virus transmission very seriously. The bungalow is away from the house and I clean with a disinfectant. Particularly surfaces including door handles etc...even curtains. Since the bungalow is separated from the house and its self check in you’re unlikely to come into contact with masses of people here, it would just be public places that you may visit. Many times I hardly see my guests at all. Probably a very good place for social distancing or isolating!
    The Bakery Bungalow is just a couple of hundred meters from the beautiful Sherbrook Forest. There are many walks through the forest, the chance to see a lyrebird, wallabies or waterfall among the huge gum trees. The famous Puffing Billy Steam Train is close by (a 2 minute drive) in Belgrave and the 1000 steps walk in the Dandenong Ranges National Forest is about 2 kms away. You can also take a 5 minute walk through the forest to arrive in the car park of the McCawber Tavern, home of great meals, a wide variety of beers and excellent live music. Both Belgrave and Upwey main streets have a wide variety of bars, cafes and restaurants to enjoy.
  • Small place, nice and clean with a wonderfully warm bed! Nice and simple and perfect for a wedding getaway in the area. It’s a bit hard to find at first (and to work out where to park) but otherwise easy once you’ve found somewhere. Close to sherbrooke falls which is really nice. Brian was friendly and flexible with check in times. Thanks!

    Sabine2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

    Terrance2020-03-06T00:00:00Z

  • We had a lovely time in this quiet, peaceful cottage with gorgeous view. The space is modern and spacious and feels secluded while being not too far away from cafes, restaurants and cinema. Amazing value for money. We felt very welcome and especially loved being greeted by the friendly dogs when we arrived!

    Claire2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little bungalow tucked away amongst the trees and ferns of the Dandenong Ranges. Everything you could possibly need- in miniature! Great for a short stay!

    If you are looking for a little piece of paradise, look no further. This charming rustic property "Cloudland" was established in the Dandenong Ranges in 1927. "Little Twicket" is a cosy cabin off the main residence. Gorgeous gardens and bird life surround you with beautiful views of the Silvan Dam.
    The setting of Little Twicket is the tranquil Dandenong Ranges. We are a short drive from the gorgeous villages of Olinda and Sassafrass, and the iconic Cuckoo Restaurant. There are cafes and restaurants galore nearby, many within walking distance and quirky antique and boutique shops. People come from all over Victoria to visit these celebrated ranges, renown for their majestic trees and peaceful atmosphere. We're walking distance to the beautiful Olinda Falls, and the incredible views at Skyhigh. You could always just relax here at Cloudland in our lovely garden, or cosy up and toast marshmallows on the fire pit. We want to help you enjoy your little getaway as much as you can so feel free to chat to us before you arrive if you want to know some of the great things to see in the area, and we can help plan your trip.
    There is something so special about the "Dandenongs". We have so many unique shops and cafes that bring many weekend tourists. But if you're looking for peace and tranquility, there are beautiful walks and locations where you can escape and enjoy the surroundings.
  • The most beautiful little space! It was the absolute perfect place for a night away - so quiet and peaceful. Styled so nicely with some lovely little touches around the place. I will definitely be coming back for another relaxing night soon! :)

    Elaine2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely little cabin in a great location. The only downside for us was no shower in the cabin itself, but there is a shower located in the main house that is available to guests if you’re comfortable with this. Danielle and Gem were very accommodating by helping us check in early so we could get to a wedding in the area, and this was very much appreciated. There are plenty of little touches in the cabin which make it cozy and pleasant. Thank you, Danielle!

    Rachel2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful and peaceful place to unwind. Shower in the main house was lovely and easy to access. Hosts were laid back and welcoming. Loved it!

It is such a serene atmosphere and it's just perfect to relax in the whirlpool while being in nature with parrots feeding on the porch and city views at night. The team at Observatory Cottages was lovely too. They even provided lactose free milk products for us. We can highly recommend this place! Thanks guys!

    Naya2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Cannot recommend this beautiful quaint little love cottage enough. Very cozy with such thoughtful touches, including Lidnt chocolates, a bottle of red and a fresh loaf of sourdough. The view of the city is incredible, and we definitely recommend catching the sunset while you're there, with beautiful dusk colours painting the sky. Mt Dandenong is such a gorgeous location, and a must-see if you are travelling from oversees. The cottage itself was all warm with jazz music playing waiting for our arrival. The spa bath, four poster bed, gorgeous dual shower and dressing gowns make this perfect for a romantic getaway with a partner, or even a beautiful cozy night in with a friend. Will definitely be back! 10/10.

    Nicolas2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • I spend last weekend away at this beautiful cottage. It didn't have any internet or great Tv signal which is exactly one of the reasons why we went up because the beautiful surroundings, the fresh air, the fire place ( alix has it all prepared and ready to go) was just amazing. Alix was kind enough to also purchase fresh foods and milk which we didn't expect to happen so it was very nice of her. The cottage was amazing the little town of Olinda is just amazing so i would def recommend anyone that is looking for a quiet yet peaceful weekend away this is a great place to achieve that. Thank you Alix and im sure we will def be staying again sooner than later.

    Cristian2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Adorable Cottage in a Fern Forest. Beautiful 2 rooms with lovely food to cook for breakfast and great ideas of what to see. Very quiet and secluded in the forest but only 8 blocks to town for dinner. Best of both worlds. We'll be back.

    Holly Cottage, is central and walking distance to restaurants and dining, great gardens and bush walks, along with great views along the way. Quirky and antique decor and furnishing, not a hotel but a home. Organically kept house, no harsh chemicals here.;] Easy stroll into both villages of Olinda, yet so secluded, peaceful, and quiet. Netflix, Stan, Foxtel and Telstra TV for your enjoyment. Spacious part of the house, and very private. Off street parking. Suitable for couples and families.
    Spacious part of the house, cathedral ceilings and radiating beams on ceilings, unique residence with lots of heating options and so very close to everything in Olinda. Quality new beds, quality bed linen and towels, locally made toiletries and ample breakfast and day time snacks supplied. Netflix, Stan, Foxtel, USB full of movies and Telstra TV available. Fresh flowers in season from the garden.
    Quiet and relaxing. Surrounded by pristine gardens, bush land and still close to everything. IGA is 500mt from here, as is Pellegrino's Fresh Grocer, and Organic Fanatic Food Store. Cafes, Restaurants Galore, Sassafras Lolly Shop and Geppeto's Toy Shop all easy walking distance from Holly Cottage.
  • We were travelling with two little toddlers and everyone loved the place. The rooms are clean, beds super comfortable. A lot of toys and space for the little ones. Jasna left us a lot of food and fruit, tea and coffee. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again some time soon!

    Amy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Jasna’s place is in the heart of Olinda, just a few minutes walk from cafes and shops. You won’t need to go out for breakfast though, the spread Jasna provides is amazing. The gate. Is stunning and the house clean and full of character. We played lots of pool and enjoyed sitting in the garden.

    Nicole2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    Felicity2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Jasna’s cottage was a fantastic place to stay for a relaxing weekend away. Her garden is just fantastic - full of flowers, greenery, and even bee hives & a chicken coop! It was so lovely. Jasna goes that extra mile and provides breakfast and snacks for guests which is just lovely, you really don’t need to step out as the house has everything! And the beds & pillows were so comfy - I haven’t NOT had a sore neck in so long! Thank you Jasna for your hospitality.

    Amanda2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Holly Cottage is a sensational home with everything you need. Each bedroom is as well appointed as the others so a group can comfortably stay. The place was sparkling clean, fitted with everything you need and Jasna provided us a generous provision of local produce for breakfast. Although it says no cooking facilities there were alternatives galore - two electric frypans, microwave, coffee machine. We didn’t lack for a thing. Historical Olinda starts right next door with beautiful churches, buildings and gardens. Jasna is a thoughtful host - You will be impressed.!

    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 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. "A night away in the Dandenongs, catching up with friends was just what we needed...a place away from home, such a peaceful little spot, Loved it, xx" Jodes
    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.

    Romilly2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

  • Lauren's place is within walking distance from Tatra's Reception, which makes it a perfect place for those attending an event there. The sunroom is modern, spacious and very clean. Communication with Lauren was great, check in and out process was smooth and easy. Highly recommended.

    Sandra2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • The Garden Room is charming. Lauren is a superb hostess and really does provide the extra touches not normally found at other places. The facilities are all you need, the room is tastefully decorated, the bed is super comfy, the bathroom modern and very clean(as was the rest of the place) Lots of information on surrounding areas in a folder thoughtfully provided by Lauren. A great place to stay.

    WE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED Bessie is a sweet 1959 vintage caravan, plenty of room for two and enough for three. The cosy caravan is heated, lovely and snug no matter the weather. Offering a minimum of one night stay for a quick getaway or stay longer & enjoy the peace. Set on 5 acres with beautiful gardens and our own private rainforest walk plus miles of bushwalks from our front gate. There's an undercover area with a chiminea so guests can have a campfire. This is a 'no smoking' property.
    Our garden is part of the 'Secret Gardens of the Dandenongs' tour and is one of the nicest gardens in the hills. The short cool temperate rainforest walk on our property is just beautiful with a meandering path beside a little creek that runs through the property. We are also very close to the Dandenong Ranges Botanic Garden (previously known as the National Rhododendron Gardens). Along with the beautiful forest of Mountain Ash trees and amazing tall tree ferns, we are fortunate to have plenty of open areas with lots of sunshine too. There is a shelter by the caravan with a chiminea and seating so guests can enjoy a fire. The shelter catches the mid-morning and afternoon sun, making it a lovely spot to read and relax by the fire. The Olinda Falls are a short walk away (about 30 minutes) and our 'local' is the Pig and Whistle Tavern (Mt Dandenong) - 15 minutes walk away, via an unsealed road with a few hills to increase your appetite... or a quick 2-minute drive. The caravan (Bessie) has a narrow doorway - it is rather quirky and can be seen in the photos. It is 16"/41cm wide, with a built-in timber flyscreen. BEDS: Bessie has two beds. The 'double' is a touch under the standard width size, though it is long - 203cm in length, so very cosy. The mattress is super comfy. The table can be made into a single bed for a third guest. KITCHEN: A microwave, toaster, and kettle are available to use in the caravan along with crockery, etc. Coffee, tea, and milk will also be provided for guests. There is also an AeroPress coffee maker and ground coffee, for a perfect cuppa. A water filter jug is provided too. We use rainwater tanks up here so generally filter our drinking water. We also have a basic outdoor camp kitchen with a gas camp stove for cooking if required. It is under the awning of the caravan with outdoor seating. A small frypan and saucepan can be found in the caravan. FRIDGE: A portable car fridge is in the ensuite room for food, drinks etc. ENSUITE ROOM: The toilet and hot shower are located beside the caravan in an ensuite, just a few steps from the caravan. We have a Bluetooth speaker in the caravan, b.y.o music or podcasts! CHILDREN: The property is not set up for children as we have some steep areas with no fencing. If you want to bring a child though, please enquire and let us know as we do not mind. The listing is for up to 3 guests (including children). This is a non-smoking property.
    Mt Dandenong is a beautiful little village and a short walk (20 minutes) from our home. The area is well known for parks and gardens, forest trails, viewpoints, and wildlife. It is a delightful escape from city life or to add to your tour itinerary. We are very close to the Dandenong Ranges Botanical Gardens (formerly the National Rhododendron Gardens). We are also very close to great Mountain bike riding tracks. Mathias Track, opposite our home, is a well-known bike track as well as hiking trails.
  • We had the loveliest getaway here! Jane and Geoff are so sweet, and the space is perfect. We’re already planning when we can come back again. Be sure to walk down to their creek when you stay, it’s so peaceful and beautiful.

    Courtney2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing stay at Bessie - the caravan, and even better was meeting Jane and Goff's amazing family (including their bunnies and guinea pigs) which was highlight of the trip for us. We were planning to step out, but there was so much to do on the property - the walk to the creek, meeting the bunnies , sitting by the fire at night, enjoying the hanging chairs, the lovely garden; we are surely going back again soon

  • This is the perfect place for a quiet, romantic getaway. Jane and Geoff have thought of everything! Easy to find, close by to all that the Ranges has to offer and on such beautiful grounds where you can wander and really enjoy nature. We're already looking at dates for our next stay!

    Leila2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This was by far the best air bnb we've ever been too. Bessie is full of character and feels instantly welcoming and warm. The garden is quirky and adventurous, so beautiful. Jane was so welcoming and accommodating. The kitchen/bathroom area has everything you need. Hot water, toilet, fridge. The fairy lights are beautiful and the fire area is so relaxing. The views and serenity are next level. We had the best weekend! Thank you so much. We willbe back!

  • 23/02/20 - A short but memorable stay at Windmill Barn, we were greeted by the warm decor, pretty cushions and a family of much loved toy bears. The rustic cottage offers a glimpse back into yesteryear with a collection of vintage exhibits, both educating and interesting. Pretty creative touches adorn outdoor areas. The barn was clean, well presented with comfortable beds, soft towels, great spa and the amazing basket of treats was simply delightful! Hosts, Victor and Lauretta, were friendly and easy to communicate with. A sweet holiday retreat!

  • Lesa is very reliable in her communication, which made the booking process and the duration of the stay very smooth. We stayed at her's for a wedding in Sky High and it was so conveniently close (5 mins away!). Lesa was kind enough to allow my parents to come over and get ready before the wedding, which was so wonderful! The apartment is idyllic, clean, very private, warm and It also included breakfast, tea/coffee and lovely biscuits. It felt very homely! I also enjoyed all the small touches such as chocolates left on the bed and the very organised information booklet. I would definitely recommend staying at Lesa's!

  • What beautiful attention to detail and love has been put in to this little cottage! The moment we entered, the warm welcoming ambience put smiles on our faces - music, lights and mood were all set and it felt like we were walking in to a home away from home - we were at ease right away. The little surprises here and there were super thoughtful and we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast basket - perfect for our supper since we arrived late in the day. Thank you for the obvious love you have given into creating an inviting and comfortable experience for your guests!

    Mitch2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I had a great stay in Olinda at Autumn’s place. The house is very beautiful and thoughtfully designed, with extra special welcome inclusions like wine and breakfast groceries that make the stay more comfortable. Our stay was very comfortable and we couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing place to stay. Unfortunately, due to the extreme bushfire alert the next day we were unable to stay the following night in the accommodation. However, Autumn took great care in contacting us early and letting us know what was going on so that we could decide what to do. She was very happy to organise whatever we needed and we really appreciated her care and ease of organising a refund for the stay. We would happily stay here again in the future and would recommend Autumn’s place for anyone looking for a relaxing and secluded getaway.

    Jason2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place - we loved it!

    Kathleen2019-12-23T00:00:00Z

    Kathleen2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The most breathtaking location, the bed was Super comfy, the spa was so good and the entertainment set up was put into good use!! Breakfast food was stocked and the wine, fruit basket and personalised note was such a thoughtful touch. Would definitely love to come back with my partner 💖

    Syaza2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay there. Autumn and John went out of their way to make it a great stay and always answered our queries promptly. The house was perfect. The surroundings outstandingly beautiful and very restful and peaceful. We were very tired and stressed when we arrived and felt so much better when we left. The price was a little above our usual budget, but having stayed there it was very well worth it and we will be back! Thank you !

    Shelley2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was beautiful. Upon arrival we received a welcome basket, a note from the owner and organic products for a gourmet breakfast. The home was fully equipped with the essentials including plenty of wood for the fire. Beautiful views from all windows in the home and access to the gardens was fantastic. The location was wonderful, easy access to the cafes and local stores and hidden away from the busy road. Such a great stay and so tranquil.

  • We stayed for just one night at Kyoko’s place - the house was extremely clean with detailed instructions to check in and for the various appliances and amenities. There were thoughtful touches starting with a breakfast basket, house slippers and a range of toiletries in the bathroom. The house is well located close to the town of Olinda. It is surrounded by greenery and the balcony is a great place to sit and watch the bird life. Kyoko’s communication is excellent and prompt including detailed directions and things to do in the area. While it was an unusually hot day (41degrees) and the house does not have an air conditioner, Kyoko did her best to ensure we were comfortable by supplying stand fans, cold water in the fridge and ice. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Kyoko’s place.

  • My sister and I loved staying at Kyoko's place. It was really big for the both of us and the huge deck at the back was a welcome spot to sit and relax (and watch the hungry birds!). Kyoko had thought of everything, and we especially appreciated the fresh bread and spreads, fruit, and milk that had been left for us. The house was very peaceful and we had a wonderful night's sleep. I wish we could've stayed for longer than 1 night!

  • Wonderful spot!

  • Kyoko was very helpful both in the booking process and with clear directions. She welcomed us into her home when we arrived and was very kind. She had left us plenty of food for breakfast and directions of where else to shop and dine. Her house is charming and quirky with a lovely deck from which to watch the many birds that flew past to check us out. Thank you Kyoko for being such a lovely hostess.
