  • It was a great spot with great views. Raoul was very welcoming and obviously love his house and all the story around it. Nice spacious place to hang out and relax. It was a chilly night so many bring a extra layer if you are easily cold. Emerald is a great place to go visit.

  • This little 'apartment' is an extension to an old house with a long history. In fact, when we were first welcomed by Raoul, he gave us a brief tour and explained that without the house in which we were staying in, the entire history of Emerald would have been different. The apartment is extremely spacious, probably nearly twice the size of my own 2BR apartment in Melbourne. The fact that it is an open plan makes it even more spacious. Coupled with the glass ceilings to floor windows, it made for extremely spacious living. What's cooler about this apartment is that it is built around an extremely old tree. My girlfriend and I booked the apartment just to relax and boy did we relax. The vinyl player and the massive collection of records and DVDs were entirely at our disposal, and we had utter privacy. Raoul was extremely helpful in making us feel welcome and gave us all the privacy we wanted, and more. Would love to go back for a few more nights just to unwind!

  • Raoul Made us feel very welcome, His awesome knowledge of the house and surrounds made us want to read more (in Books in his hideaway). The pictures do not do it justice, would deff stay again. We wish you well with the endeavours around the property. Many Thanks

    denis2016-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Spectacular view! The room is clean and spacious. It is such a shame that we only have a short stay this time. I will definitely come back and stay longer next time.

    wei2015-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • It was a good place for holiday and the host are very kindly people. By the way,the house is really nice too, the view,the light,all of that is good.

    Yubin2015-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Raoul was very welcoming and showed us around the place including the history of the property and had an amazing knowledge or the area. The view was certainly breathtaking and the best part was waking up with the glass windows surrounding the room looking out to the forest. The apartment was clean and comfortable and as described. A perfect weekend away not too far out of Melbourne that I would definitely recommend to others.

    Jessica2015-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely and very relaxing night and day in the tree house apartment. The photos are a pretty good depiction of how clean and neat the apartment is, but the view from the bed is something you have to experience in real life. So hard to leave! Raoul was super helpful and friendly, whilst also giving us heaps of space. His flexibility with us was also greatly appreciated. We would love to return.

    Josephine 2015-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Raoul's place was one of the highlights of my trip. The treehouse was spectacular and very unique. Raoul was friendly and gave us a good introduction of this historic house. The place was clean and cozy and we had access to the kitchen which was really great. The view was amazing and way better than the photos in the listing. We even got to see a wombat at night. The small town and woolies is just on the main road. My boyfriend loves the record player with Raoul's impressive selection of music. Wish we could stay longer! Will definitely be back in the future. :)

  • Wow. This is a house I found very hard to leave. The floor to ceiling windows looking out at the tree ferns and towering eucalyptus trees, and trickling waterfall, are just incredible. On top of the amazing house and garden, the added touches of fresh native flowers in every room, bountiful breakfast provisions (including fresh eggs and freshly baed bread), thick towels and bathrobes and a cosy fire burning when we arrived make the experience truly luxurious. We travelled with our 2 little boys, who were very excited to find frogs in the billabong on their torchlit expedition in the garden.

    Simone2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • The house is warm and friendly, with the best garden and bush outlook you could hope for. It has a great kitchen, balcony, fantastic views, fire and soothing water features. We go away for many weekends and have rented a number of different places across Victoria and this place is really unique. The hosts were very accommodating and we had fresh eggs, milk, bread, plenty of fire wood and chilled bubbles waiting for us on arrival. Could highly recommend Sarah's house for anyone looking for a romantic trip away.

    jane2017-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • One of the most beautiful homes, but the thoughtfulness Sarah put into making our stay comfortable and welcoming was so refreshing and kind. Sarah was the best host and we will surely want to visit again! Thankyou Sarah!

    Tanya2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Sarah. We had the best weekend ever. The fresh flowers, fresh bread and extra gifts made it all extra special. Billabong Falls was spectacular, so beautiful & private, a great place to be in touch with nature and relax in luxury.

    Pippin2017-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • I was looking for a nice relaxing place to celebrate my birthday with my family and Billabong falls did just that. There was bread cooking when we arrived. Sarah had left a fresh home cooked birthday cake in the fridge for me. And some toys for my 3 year old to play with while we stayed. All these little touches made our stay feel very special. The photos do it no justice you need to see to believe. The waterfalls and gardens are stunning. The surroundings are picturesque, you could sit all day and just look out at the view. It was a shame we only stayed the two nights. But we will definitely be back. I highly recommend this hidden gem

    Brydie 2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Olinda is a great getaway in the Dandenong's. Beautiful views and a garden with a magnificent waterfall feature. The accommodation has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. Sarah is a great host.

    Ty2017-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • This place is divine. The space is so comfortable and relaxing. Sarah’s attention to detail is impeccable. Highly recommend!!!

  • Billabong Falls... what s magical, whimsical & stunning place to stay! We feel so grateful for the opportunity & can't wait to come back some day! Thank you so much, your place was perfect... we loved the beautifully thought out & landscaped gardens, waterfalls, outdoor shower, stunning tall trees, the birds, the frogs, log fire, red wine & Cat Stevens... haha..., heaven! Look forward to returning some day! ☺️

  • Fabulous house in spectacular location. Felt like I'd stepped back in time. Would love to go back!

  • Beautiful Home in beautiful surrounds! Stay of 12 were more than comfortable in this incredible house. Lovely gardens and trees everywhere on the property and the pool and spa were excellent!

    David2017-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Jay was an absolutely fantastic host. Went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay.. What a fantastic gem hidden in the Dandenongs. You will not regret staying at this wonderful home.

    Vinh2017-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • What a charming place, the gardens alone are worth the stay, they are magnificent. This is an old and wonderful home that is full of charm. The surrounding parks offer great walks with lots to see, rain forests and waterfalls. there are a small group of shops not far from the property with a cafe or two close by. It was great just to take time out and relax with family and this home allowed us to do just that.

    Fon2017-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this place. The house is really spacious. We made good use of the expansive kitchen and outdoor setting for brunch in the sun. Nikki was a great host - very welcoming and accommodating. Highly recommended for big groups.

    Monica2016-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • My friends and I had such a wonderful night in Jay's beautiful home. The house was absolutely spectacular, the gardens/property absolutely GORGEOUS, and Jay was the perfect host. Jay called to make sure we were settling in okay, and happy for me to ring through with any questions throughout the night. I would stay here again and recommend this house to anyone in a heartbeat.

    Stephanie2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place in a beautiful location. It is a big property with lots of natural beauty. We had a great weekend. If the pool heating was working it would have been alot better. Apart from that it was totally amazing.

    Deepak2017-04-09T00:00:00Z

    Experience the magic of tranquility. Only minutes walk to cafes and shops. The best of both worlds.
    Everything that we have done in the house is out of pure love and joy for the space. Everything was purchased and made because we loved it so much. Our guests will experience the pleasure and comfort through out their stay. We live near the city for work, so we have chosen Valley Ranges Getaways as our hosts to look after your requirements as they are local, so very happy to speak with you at any time.

    i love the peace and quite, fresh air filled with noises of the forest. walking distance to all amenities. Most of all I love the energy of the house and grounds, it allows me to drop in to deep relaxion and experience pure joy. Enjoy peace and quiet and please respect the neighbours during your stay.
  • Jeff and Peta were highly communicative and very accommodating hosts. The place is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Overall, a great deal of effort has been put into ensuring a unique experience in a serene location with lovely views of a sunset and city at night. Would love to consider amother stay in the future :)

    Joyce2017-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot and very welcoming hosts. Heaps of space and very comfortable. We had a great time. Would love to stay again.

    James2016-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • When we arrived it was a cool day, but the house had been recently prepared and we arrived to a warm house, with soft music playing. It was lovely and very relaxing to walk into such a pleasant environment. Everything was neat and clean, the fireplace was laid and ready for a fire, the view was wonderful and all of us were very comfortable. A word of warning, however as the driveway is quite steep, and one of our cars had difficulty getting out of the driveway. I would highly recommend backing in if you can, to make it as easy as possible to get back out. It's a quiet and beautiful location, and the hosts were incredibly helpful both before and after our stay in terms of making sure we had what we needed and whether everything worked ok while we were there.

    Ashley2015-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Well designed and cosy place tuck away in a quiet private corner. The house is well designed and nicely decorated. Kitchen is comprehensive and functional enough for you to whip up a good meal. The 3 bedroom is spacious and comfortable. Living area has a wood fireplace which adds to the ambiance of the place when it gets cold outside. There is a kids corner with sufficient toys to keep the kids happy which will come in handy if you have children in tow. The house is nestle in the midst of forested area and there is a nice walking place just below the house for those who love nature. Jeff is also very friendly and took the time to meet me and show me the house on the first day. Overall, it is a good place to rest and re-charge. Nice break away from the busy city life.

    Mark2016-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • misty woods was a beautiful place with so much attention to detail. we loved the wood fire and relaxing bath overlooking the tranquil forest. the sunset views were spectacular we felt like we were miles away from everything, although olinda was only a minute away! jeff was a fabulous host, very helpful and made sure everything was just perfect for our stay. we will be back!!

    carly2015-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Our young family of four enjoyed our stay in Olinda. The location of the property is excellent, providing the sort of experience and views that a stay in the hills represents. The rooms are furnished with style, providing a lovely place to relax, and adequate food provisions were supplied to make our initial arrival less hectic. Tip for young families : The accommodation has a fireplace and stairs which both act as a magnet for toddlers. Be prepared to run interference!

    Kent2015-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • It was a magical stay in this beautiful property. We enjoyed sitting on the outdoor deck just watching the sunset, with treetops as far as the eye could see. We loved the fireplace, and taking spontaneous walks in the trails just beyond the front yard. Great breakfast.

    koh2016-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a magical getaway at this house among the ferns... The place was bright and modern, cozy and gorgeous. It had all we needed to have a fabulous weekend get away with friends. Firewood was a plenty to make for warm winters nights. The added complimentary food and beverages were appreciated also. Only a 1 hour drive from Melbourne but felt like we were well and truly in the woods. To future guests, be ready for the driveway. It is very steep as expected for the area. Well worth it to be in such a gorgeous location on the side of a hill. We had no trouble picking up the keys from Olinda town at a booking office and finding our way to the house. We never met or had communications with Jeff but had communications from Peta and they were helpful. Overall a great place for a group experience in the gorgeous Dandenong Ranges. Thank you

    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. You’ll love my place because of the location and easy access on a sealed road. Netflix, Stan, Foxtel and Telstra TV for your enjoyment. Spacious part of the house and very private. Off street parking. Suitable for families, girls or boys weekend away, bridal and groom parties and couples.
    Spacious house, cathedral ceilings and radiating beams on ceilings, unique residence with lots of heating options and so very close to everything in Olinda. Quality bed linen and towels, 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. Suits families, bridal parties and couples.
    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.
  • The host sent very clear instructions and left the key in an easy to find safety box. It was a very pleasant stay!

    Brenda2017-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Jasna's. The place is exactly as described. We had a lot of fun playing pool and the house is very comfortable and has everything you need. The breakfast provisions were very generous and Jasna was a very thoughtful and attentive host. The location was great. We came up from Melbourne without a car because the place is within walking distance to shops, restaurants and some scenic walks. Highly recommended!

    Rimi2017-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Jasna is a very friendly and warm host! She had the heaters turned on and even prepared the fireplace, which was greatly appreciated on a cold and rainy day.The breakfast supplies provided were more than ample. Jasna's place is conveniently located near a few eateries too. My parents and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will choose Jasna's place again the next time we are in the vicinity.

    Charmaine2017-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a beautiful, restful weekend in Jasna's lovely house. Great space - very comfortable, cosy and the place was spotless. Jasna was a very generous host and we'll definitely be going back.

    Emilia2016-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful 3 bedroom cottage on amazing grounds in the middle of everything! We walked to dinner and a cafe in the morning, street surrounded by gorgeous greenery. Jasna was an excellent host, had a 3 course breakfast with home grown vegies and amazing finishing touches throughout the home. We loved the pool table and the lounge room fire was perfect for a cold spring night. The photo's do not do it justice, it is very spacious and accommodating. We would love to stay again and it was a shame we only got 1 night. Thanks Jasna for your wonderful hospitality.

  • Jilly's communication leading up to our stay was so welcoming and informative, we couldn't wait to visit the Secret Garden. Tucked away amongst gum trees and beautiful trees, it really was a secret gem. The accommodation was lovely - such a big space with a beautiful claw-foot bath with views out to the forest, a four poster bed, large living area and kitchen with everything we needed. Jilly had even left us some delicious pastries. Very quiet and private. We had a very relaxing stay.

    Emma2015-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • A cute venue tucked away in the greenery of the area, private and we were left to our own devices. in a great location for the tourist attractions of the area. We made a bit of a mistake following (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) to 'the Secret Garden' which is actually a different place, luckily a friendly Postie got us back on the right track. so make sure you use the actual address.

We loved walking into a warm room with music playing and having little extras like complimentary muscat and chocolate. Nickett was very helpful with giving all instructions and recommendations for dinner etc. highly recommend these cottages for some down time and escaping the hustle and bustle of every day life.

  • As first time users of airbnb we didn't know what to expect but David made our stay welcoming. We had a bottle of red wine upon arrival, yummy goodies that were in fridge. It was very thoughtful and helpful. David gave us our own privacy. The room was cosy and pleseant and view was beautiful. great value for your money and definitely helped us enjoy our wedding we attending. It was easy to find and get to and from. Local dine in restaurants were amazing too.

    Cristal2017-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at The Treehouse. The house is amongst the trees and wilderness and close to shops and walking trails. David is a very friendly host, gave us very valuable tips and local information. The room we stayed is adequate for two people. Would love to stay there again.. hopefully the weather will be better next time!

Would very very highly recommend this Airbnb, it was a pleasure staying here :-)

  • Myself and my partner had a fantastic stay. The place was lovely and we would definitely recommend it. The hot tub was already heated when we arrived and plenty of clean towels towels were provided. The house is located within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Unfortunately some of the parks we wanted to visit were closed due to total fire ban days, however there was still plenty of alternative open. If I were to book this place again I would probably do it through their website rather than airbnb (didn't realise they had their own website when I initially made the booking).

    Katherine2016-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Location: The Credo Cottage is in a fantastic location, literally steps away from the Olinda shops! The highlights: The best part is the outdoor spa, heats up perfectly and is pretty clean Would I come back: Only If the place had a decent do up I would

Log fire, spa, proximity to Olinda village (walk about 100 metres), vouchers for breakfast at Ranges ... all great features. We will be back.

  • Annie Roe's is the best combination of quiet mountain retreat and proximity to Olinda restaurants. We booked here as an overnight stay for an Olinda Cellars wine dinner at Copperfields. It was an easy walk from the town hub and we fell asleep to crickets and cool mountain breezes. It was so easy to check in and out and communication was great. The place is decked out to french provincial perfection and the breakfast hamper is wonderful.

    An unique hills home with touches of modern and mid-century styles. Our home welcomes you to relax, revive in the beautiful public gardens nearby or partake in the great cafes n shops. Lots of brilliant walks or maybe try your hand at some artwork or homemade cocktails.
    One king size room, a queen size room and a King single room are available upstairs. They're really comfy beds. Plenty of extra quilts and blankets to snuggle up in. Great block out blinds but then how can you shut the blinds on such a pretty view from your window? Lots of birds including kookaburras. George the kookaburra drops by and watches us in the kitchen regularly. An occasional deer wanders through the garden at dawn n dusk. The kitchen and dining area are large spaces and well equipped. Perhaps you might try a new recipe from the cookbook collection in the bookcase. A Jura coffee machine is easy to use and makes a lovely cappuccino. Cold press juicer available. The bathroom hasn't been renovated yet but you will get to experience the joys and beauty of a mid-century pink bathroom suite! Around the house and gardens we still have some work to do. There's painting the window frames and replanting the garden after we had to bring down some mountain ash gums. We'll schedule any work to be done when the house is not booked.
    Loads of stunning gardens in the area. World renowned William Ricketts Sanctuary is a short drive away. The assistance from the team at Cloudhill is brilliant and the gardens there are worth a meander or two. The local cafes and restaurants are lovely. We HIGHLY recommend The Deli Platter in Olinda. Trish and the team will look after you with plenty of cheeses, charcuterie and sweet treats for everyone, including those with restrictive dietary needs. Shannon Bennetts' The piggery is fun for all who enjoy food, coffee and Boules. Plenty of great clothing and gift stores, Butlers Pantry in Olinda is a favorite for old fashioned homewares and the occasional new thing. The mount dandenong arboretum is vast and varied and well worth a lazy afternoon with coffee n newspaper in hand lying on the grass under the trees.
  • Suzanne and Ron's house would have to be one of the most amazing airbnb's I've stayed in. The photos are exactly what the place is like. They were happy to accomodate early check in - fresh bread and a bottle of bubbly on arrival as well. Ron also helped me fix my car after it broke down. If you've considering staying here just book it I could not recommend it more highly

    Elysia2017-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • It was my uncle and aunt's first Airbnb experience. Truth be told they were pretty nervous, but I'm so glad that they loved Suz and Ron's place so much and cooked up a storm of mussels and pasta. Every window had a view and it was so lovely to just relax and soak in the company of family. We LOVED the couch and apple TV. :) Check in was such a breeze too. Thank you Suz and Ron!

It was almost like they left to allow us to have a snippet of how they live - and grand it is!

  • This air BnB was perfect. We enjoyed it as a couple and plan a trip back with friends to take advantage of the additional rooms for a garden show later in the year. Entertainment and wifi options are the best we've had with any booking via air BnB. We bought Suzanne and Rons system on the way home.

    Rachel2017-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place that is in the perfect spot! It's so close to the town, yet when you are at the cabin, it feels like you are away from everyone! The cabin was nice and warm when we arrived, as Shellie had left the heater on for us. There was a beautiful fresh produce basket as well as some juice and milk in the fridge. Above what you would expect anywhere else!! My partner and I went away for our anniversary and had an amazing time!!! We turned our phones off, opened some wine and enjoyed the fire and some movies. By far the nicest place I have stayed in Victoria. And we are already looking forward to our next trip up to Sassafras! Thanks again

    Ashleigh2017-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Immaculately presented, Shellie is a great host. I loved her attention to detail. from her welcome hamper, candles, comfy pillows and soaps. You could not get a more luxurious get away. If you want a quiet place to reconnect with nature in style, this is the place for you.

    Cristi2017-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • This beautiful lodge was just amazing. Well worth the money and Shellie really made us feel comfortable and welcome. Before we arrived the gas fire place was already running and a candle lit. Walking in from a winter cold night we were welcomed into a lovely warm lodge. Shellie had left a welcome basket full of local produce, items to make breakfast, fresh milk and squeezed orange juice as well as home made chocolate fudge which was just delicious! Tea and coffee was there too as well as tea light candles around the spa bath as well as bubble bath soap to put in your spa bath. The place was very clean and well presented. Outside out balcony over looked the tall (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)s and forest, just a beautiful sight to see. We had such a great time and would highly recommend to stay here for anyone wanting a mountain/rainforest getaway snuggled up to a cosy fire and relaxing in the spa bath.

    Aleesha2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Staying here was truly amazing. Great for a nice, quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of life. When we walked in we were greeted with the fireplace ready, plenty of organic/local goods (which is totally my thing!!!) and the amazing view from the window/balcony! Everything was top notch! A very generous stay :) The only thing I wish I had done was stay one more night!

    Rebekah2017-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Chudleigh Park is a wonderful serene location in the best place in the Dandenongs. Walking trails and restaurants are within easy strolling distance. Breaky basket was awesome. Thanks Shellie for a fabulous time away.

They set up a private fire for us facing the forest which my wife and I where able to sit by and have take away pizza and listen to music was a great memory from an awesome place in beautiful scenery, They decor is quite dated but furniture is nice and modern the breakfast ingredients were fresh tasty and freaken awesome!

The R.J.Hamer Arboretum is fabulous for a bit of a hike and has a great view over the Warburton Ranges at the top, and the lookout from SkyHigh is wonderful at sunset.

  • My sister and I spent a lovely weekend at Cambridge Cottages. A perfect setting for a girls weekend and would be great for one or two couples too. Karen has thought of everything you would need. And such a short walk to the beautiful Rhododendron Gardens and Olinda shops makes for a very enjoyable and relaxed weekend in the Dandenongs. Thanks Karen.

    Pip2017-08-13T00:00:00Z

  • We loved staying at Poppy's. We had such an amazing weekend. Audrey is a great host providing everything you need for a weekend away, fridge full of snacks, bubbles on arrival, music, heaps of fire wood to keep the fire going, the list goes on. Our favourite part was the hot tub, Audrey had it ready for is to jump in. Thanks again for making our little getaway great.

    Lani2017-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • I suprised my partner with a night away in Poppys Vintage Caravan. Not only was he blown away, so was I. Audreys attention to detail is impeccable. From the bathrobes to keep you warm down at the spa, to the marshmallows to toast on the fire, everything was perfect. The well stocked complimentary pantry & bottle on bubbles also went down well! We can't wait to stay there again!

    Ami2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is beyond every expectation. Anything you could need is right there in the caravan, which makes it so that you can spend your time on the important things. It so perfectly cozy in the caravan, and it’s so romantic laying on the day bed at night because the whole property is lit up with fairy lights. Best holiday ever.

    Jade2017-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I spent a lovely 2 nights at Poppy's. Such a beautiful place to relax and use as a base for exploring the area. Audrey is a fabulous host. There is so much love and attention to detail put into this unique gem. We were beyond impressed. Great location too. Easy walking distance to local restaurants and shops. Highly recommend Poppy's. Thanks Audrey :)

    Jacqui2017-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Wow this place is amazing - super cosy and fun. Audrey spoiled us even leaving gluten free treats when I mentioned I'm coeliac. Highly recommend a steak at the pig and whistle nearby too :)

    Amy2017-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Where do I start? My stay at Poppy's was next level hospitality! Audrey was helpful, providing me with endless suggestions for things to see and do and places to eat in the local area. She was knowledgable, easy to communicate with, and the time and effort she has put into your stay is clear from the moment you arrive. The caravan itself is cosy and quaint and it is complete with all the creature comforts. And you can't forget the hot tub! My partner and I had such a memorable experience and I will most certainly be recommending a stay to family and friends. We will be back for sure. Thank you Audrey for sharing your beautiful caravan with us!

    Katherine2017-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • After finding Audrey's place & reading all of the reviews, we were beyond excited and had very high hopes for this place. Poppy & Audrey's incredible hosting went above and beyond our expectations. It is the perfect Dandenong get away, and there is really no reason to leave as it has everything you need! So charming- from the decor choices, to help starting the fire & a spa-- it's actually the perfect Airbnb. We will be back :) Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

    Jamie2017-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Poppy's Vintage getaway is the most romantic secluded place I've ever been to! Upon arrival - twinkling fairy light and a beautiful view of the sunset as we arrived. The caravan was stocked with food (eggs, bacon, chocolate etc) and drink (water, oj and champagne), with a tv and iPad to watch videos and listen to music via Bluetooth speakers. The bathroom had towels, soap and amenities just in case you forgot anything and also a speaker as well to listen to music. There was also a jacuzzi ready to go ! We met Audrey a little while after and she was incredibly warm and lovely! If there was anything that we needed she was just a call/ text away from assisting us! We also got to meet Jack (one of her dogs) and he was a big friendly giant to us which was definitely one of the highlights. During stay- we watched movies on Stan, Netflix and YouTube provided by Audrey and also visited some close cafes and restaurants which was a stroll away. Overall the experience was romantic and amazing and my boyfriend and i were able to bond and enjoy each other's company undisturbed! Big thankyou to Audrey for providing an amazing place to stay at - highly recommended for couples who want to get away !

    You can have up to 4 rooms @ $130 per room based on one or two people in a room plus $65 for an extra person in a room. I live downstairs and will interact with you if you like or leave you in privacy if you so desire. The living area is very large and comfortable. The price is based on two people per room so for example if you have 4 single people you will receive 2 rooms, however, ask me for a quote for longer stays, for single rooms, unusual configurations or complete space to yourselves.
    This is a lovely big house with a total of 4 guest bedrooms rooms and 4 guest bathrooms all upstairs. This will suit singles, couples or small groups. I live on the premises with two little doggies downstairs and I am very quiet. Olinda is one hour from the city of Melbourne in a mountainous rain forest area full of nature and beauty. There is also about a dozen restaurants and cafe's walking distance to me in this popular tourist area. Hopefully, you will like our forests, and gardens which are spectacular and there are a plethora of tourist shops and attractions. I am also a qualified masseur if you feel like a massage. The metropolitan train takes you to the foot of the mountain and there is a bus that drops you off 100 metres from this house. I am friendly and hospitable and welcome guests of all nationalities and persuasions.Namaste.
    You will love Olinda's quaint little shops and touristy township - just a minutes walk from my place. Also forests and public gardens just a short walk away too.

  • This beautiful room has everything you need from a wonderful little fireplace to the comfiest blankets and bed I've ever slept in! Lilian and her husband were great hosts and this cabin was exactly what we were looking for. Great for a couple looking to get out of the city, have a bottle of wine and cosy up by the fire. Highly recommend!!

    Erinn2017-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • So glad we chose to stay at this beautiful property for our first wedding anniversary! Built with love and attention to detail by the owners themselves, we adored the comforts of the Beech Suite - from the architecturally designed high timber ceilings and cosy wood fire to the soothing sounds of kookaburras in the morning, it was such a pleasant, romantic break from the hustle of suburbia! The property itself is set on a beautiful acreage that one can wander through. The location of the B&B is perfect - situated close to town, yet also with enough distance for the peace and tranquility of the Dandenong Ranges. There is even a Gallery onsite showcasing Earthstone's art, which we enjoyed viewing. Our hostess, Lillian, was absolutely wonderful! So warm, approachable and accomodating. We highly recommend Rocky Creek to anyone staying in the area or looking for some rest and relaxation.

    David2017-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • Earthstone is a natural delight! Such a beautiful space, nestled amongst the trees of the Mountain. Perfectly tranquil space, nice and close to day walks and surrounding townships for supplies and a gentle wander. The gallery connected is also worth a visit, so much knowledge to share, will definitely be returning :)

    Brendan2017-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful property, built by owners themselves. I haven't met Earthstone, who is an artist, his wife Lillian was absolutely lovely and accomodating. They have gallery on premises and it was lovely to see his art. This accommodation is absolutely is absolutely perfect for a weekend away! Its quiet, surrounded by amazing garden. They have amazing (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)s at the back of the property, also house itself sits on a huge rock, which was quite interesting. The home itself was beautifully presented, with everything you might need included and breakfast was also supplied. Cosy bed, really comfortable! I stayed there with my baby, but i could see that it would be prefect for bigger families. They have interconnecting rooms, that could join together. Beautiful, spotless accommodation, highly recommend!!!

    Murray2017-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect place to come for a romantic weekend. So private and cosy, it was so nice to sit next to the fire with a wine! Lillian supplied everything that we needed to make our own awesome breakfast. Highly recommend!!

  • From the moment we arrived we were is awe of the peaceful surroundings and excellent architecture. We were warmly welcome by our hosts Earthstone and Lilian and instantly felt our minds shut off from our busy lives. I cannot speak more highly of how much we enjoy the Magnolia room and it's window view's. We look forward to coming back. Thank you

  • Kate was a remarkable host. Right from the start, we were overwhelmed by the home and the enormous basket of goodies that she had left for our stay. The home is great for large families/groups and the photos hardly attested to how beautiful the house was. The house was spacious but comfy at the same time and allowed for easy movement of all 10 of us. The house is surrounded by so much beautiful greenery and both the master room and bungalow provide a spectacular panoramic view of the forest. It was refreshing to wake up to the sound of birds chirping and kookaburras laughing. On the outdoor porch, we sunk into cozy chairs and sipped on tea while taking in the clean crisp air. Nothing could be more relaxing. Finding this home was like finding treasure.

From the wine, chocolates and fresh flowers upon entering, to the warm and cosy decor, to the lovely comfort with every aspect of the house, the location, gardens, proximity to Olinda.... I really could go on! There were 6 of us including two children, and the cottage was roomy, even when we were all getting ready for my brother's wedding. All the beds were super comfortable and the cottage was quick and easy to heat when it was cold outside. Sue was completely attentive and responsive, we really felt taken care of. We'll be back!

    Marcela2017-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time. The house is gorgeous - spotless, cozy and has beautiful views from every window. The beds are really comfortable and have lovely linen. A well equipped kitchen, gas log fire and ducted heating make relaxing easy. It's such a short stroll into town. Sue is a fantastic host who takes great pride in how she prepares this gorgeous cottage for guests. We hadn't been to Olinda in years (decades!!) and loved reconnecting with this stunningly beautiful district.

    Jill2017-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to visit to get away from the hustle of daily life. Wildflower cottage is located near so many great points of interest - we wish we could have stayed longer. The cottage is immaculate and yet so cosy and welcoming. The gardens are a delight. We had some phone reception issues at times, though phones with Telstra as a provider had no problems and internet access was great. Sue and Dave are wonderful hosts. We would highly recommend a visit.

Place is nice from all points of view: * hospitality - we been welcomed from our first step into property; * location - amazing & convenient, close to shops and restaurants (5 min walk to "Doodle") but same time seems like you are in a deep forest; * room - spacious enough with balcony; * house - very interesting decorated.

  • I was given a warm welcome by my host Michael on arrival at his beautiful property, which is well situated close to the lovely village of Olinda and surrounds. I found Michael to be a kind, considerate and friendly host and even warming my bed with an electric blanket after my night out! The well appointed bedrooms are located upstairs sharing a spacious living area where you can have a hearty breakfast with Michael's delicious homemade bread. I only spent the 1 night in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges which deserve a few days visit. Thank you Michael for a very comfortable and memorable stay. Best wishes Merren

    Merren2015-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • The house was just perfect for us. Located centrally in Olinda very close to the main street and cafe and shops yet incredibly quiet and peaceful. Michael was incredibly kind and generous with our comings and goings at various hours and nothing we asked for was too much trouble for him. The entire 2nd floor was for guests including a lounge room with tv, a large sunny balcony and bathroom. We had our own space to relax in and Michael checked in on us to make sure we were comfortable and cared for. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. A nice warm hug from our host as we left just topped the weekend for us. Thanks so much, Michael!

    Rahul2015-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time at this B&B and Michael was an awesome host. A combination of friendliness and also allowing for our privacy, it was the perfect getaway. Nice private room, breakfast, a great shared space, and a giant balcony.

    David2016-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay! The accomodation was fantastic, location perfect, and we were all made to feel so welcome. I have never been to a B and B where the hosts seemed to enjoy sharing their home as much as these two did. The genuine welcome, fun and good humour was a real highlight of our trip. I loved our stay, and we will come back as soon as we are able. I also have to add that Michael's excellent communication before our stay had me looking forward to our visit and I felt like we were friends before we had even arrived.

  • Even better than the pictures. We had a lovely stay. Thanks Fiona.

  • Hi Fiona, thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. Your house was cosy and welcoming, with beautiful views both at day and night. Our favourite parts about the stay was hanging by the fireplace (thank you preparing it prior to our arrival) and chilling in your tranquil study soaking up the views. Would definitely recommend this place for a relaxing getaway, that's not too far a hike from Melbourne CBD.

  • Brilliant place to stay with everything you need. Quiet, relaxing, awesome views.

    Peta2017-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay there, it was very quiet and relaxing, close to nice walking tracks (by car). The house is very comfy, the heater was very helpful, the bed was a bit small (double bed) but still comfy! Thanks you Fiona, we really had a great week end!

  • Was fortunate enough to be the first to stay at this incredible place! Everything was immaculately presented and well put together. Beautiful kitchen, appliances, stereo, TV, bathrooms, the works. You can tell a lot of thought went into the artwork as well as some very cool reading material (always wanted a typewriter now I know which one to buy!). I can't describe how perfect the location is, literally just off the main road, but somehow feels so secluded, as though you would have to drive for kms to get there. Worth every cent, looking forward to spending a lot more than two nights there next time.

  • We had a wonderful weekend away here. The house itself is amazing! Beautifully decorated, super relaxing amongst the trees. Although it's right next to the main road, you feel totally isolated. Loved the open fire and breakfast supplies that the host left for us. We will be back again soon!
