What our guests are saying
What exquisite taste you have!! We have had a most enjoyable, awesome time!! Such a pleasant change for those of us still in the workforce. Thank you so much. 'We will return!!' the Sisters of 'Sin & Tonic'.
Pam, Rhonda, Rhonda, Marge, Lyn & Jean (March 2013)
"Firstly thank you both so much for sharing your property with our little family. We fell in love with it instantly and simply did not want to leave. We couldn't have wished for a more lovely place to get away and celebrate our little one's third month birthday. Needless to say our dog Symba loved the wrap around balcony and having the wind in his face. We just want to also commend you on your impeccable taste. The decor was simple and timeless. We felt very spoilt with all the creature comforts. We truly appreciated the tiny attention to detail to make our stay so relaxing and stress free. Finally we would like to say we can't wait to return home and brag about Bilson's Landing to all our friends. We can not recommend this place enough. It has definitely become our preferred place to stay (our home away from home) and very much look forward to returning in the not too distant future. Thank you once again!"
Jason, SY, baby Stella & Symba the Chow Chow (March 2013)
"Many thanks for a wonderful weekend. Everything we could possibly need was at our fingertips and made for a fantastic stay. It is a beautiful house and we will warmly recommend it to our friends."
Bill, Elizabeth & Family (February 2013)
"Thank you for a great stay... a home away from home with all the extras. We enjoyed the high tech appliances and yes we did get the projector going but it did that three of us. We look forward to relating all our fun experiences to family and friends."
The Elliot Group (February 2013)
"Thank you for a lend of your fabulous house. We loved it the moment we arrived and it was made even more enjoyable by the attention to detail we discovered throughout the house. A wonderful three nights we spent at Bilson's Landing and we will be sure to tell friends and family about our experience."
Sandra, Beau, Jhams & Jae (December 2012)
"Thank you for providing an inspirational and original environment for us to wind down together and celebrate the start of our family Christmas. Your home exceeded our expectations with attention to detail and superb taste and design apparent. Now we have discovered Daylesford and Bilson's Landing we have decided to make both part of our 'family culture'."
Beth, Ted, Joel & Abigail (Christmas Eve 2012)
"STAYING AT BILSON'S LANDING IS A DREAM HOME AND YOU JUST DON'T WANT TO LEAVE
We chose to stay at Bilson's Landing for our daughter's wedding weekend and the wonderful experience there was more than we ever imagined. We were delightfully surprised when we walked into the magnificently designed home to find the fire lit and cosy warm on this nine degree November day. Our first hour in the home was spent just admiring all of the luxurious fittings, everything has been selected with exceptional good taste in every detail. The private bedroom & bathroom areas as well as the most comfortable beds on earth (the first thing that everyone said in the morning), allowed for all of the wedding party to rest well for the following big day. Like a miracle the sun shone the next day and the day warmed as everything aligned perfectly for the wedding day. We were able to enjoy the huge amount of natural light inside Bilson's which was ideal for the hairdresser, makeup lady and of course the photographer. She took many beautiful photos everywhere inside, staircase, the balcony and outside on the driveway with the lovely lake bush backdrop. Although I ordered some food platters in for my pre wedding guests, the 'to die for' Bilson's kitchen is well equipped and catered for my every need to present the luncheon beautifully. Thank you David for "bending over backwards" to meet our individual request and for the very generous and scrumptious gourmet hamper. Staying at Bilson's was like a second home, it was so very welcoming. We have many wonderful memories of our weekend and we thank you for this."
Keryn & Alan (November 2012)
“It was apparent as soon as we walked in the door that this was a sanctuary! We have loved every minute of our short stay and have greatly appreciated the amazing effort that has been put into this gorgeous place. We hope to be back sooner rather than later. Love,”
The Moolies (November 2012)
“The best way to describe our experience at Bilson’s Landing is ‘adorable’. Adorable ambience, taking in design of you home, furnishings, serious sound and viewing toys, pillows, beds, heating, gifts and sparkly on arrival, etc,etc.The list goes on. Every nook and cranny giving off seriously good feng shui. A very peaceful home. Loved having ‘directional instruction’ provided for all the house’s devices.”
Lynda (November 2012)
“Thank you very much for your wonderful home! We enjoyed it immensely, fantastic, the view amazing, the style of the home, so comfy, we loved the projector, when we finally got it going! Thank you again. xx. P.S. We will come back anytime.”
The Griffith Girls (October 2012)

LUXURY ESCAPE FROM THE DAILY GRIND
"Bilson's Landing is within easy walk of the lake and Daylesford's shopping strip. Everything about the house is top quality, including fittings, furnishings, even linens. Unlike many holiday rentals, the kitchen is very well kitted out, so there's no fruitless searching for a colander or a grater if you decide to eat in. There's even a variety of cookbooks to inspire you! The style is cosy but luxurious, right down to the enormous showers and the heated towel rails in the bathroom. David is very obliging about making improvements and giving assistance. We've booked our fourth stay later this year and each time, it feels like coming home, but to a much nicer place than the ones we've left. This gorgeous home - it couldn't be called merely a house - is perfect for three couples intent on hedonism. We are five old girls who don't leave once we arrive; we cook there, sit drinking and gossiping on the verandah as the shadows lengthen, then move indoors to watch a selection of Dvds provided for us in the hi-tech lounge. After each visit, it's harder to leave. We thoroughly recommend Bilson's Landing to anyone who appreciates luxury surroundings." (Marie)
OUR LUXURY HOME AWAY FROM HOME
"I and my 4 friends have had 3 wonderful weekends staying at Bilson's Landing. Each visit has been so relaxing and comfortable. The house is beautiful and luxurious, the beds so comfy and David has always been so accommodating if there was anything we needed. If you love comfort and luxury and a well equipped kitchen, as we do you shouldn't think twice about staying here. And of course, all the wonderful things Daylesford has to offer, is the icing on the cake!
We have booked Bilson's Landing for our 4th visit later this year, and we can't wait to return!" (Liz)
"Such a wonderful house, so well designed bringing “outside” inside from every room! The kitchen, a cook’s dream, so very well equipped. Everything is such fine quality too. Thank you both for your fine design and exceptional taste! ‘Grazie per la casa perfetta!’ ” (Mary)
"Another fantastic get together for a long weekend. This is our third visit and we love Bilson’s Landing for its luxury bedrooms and bathrooms and the beautiful living space. Finally we have mastered the projector!" (Liz, Jenny, Marie and Jill )
“We were excited from the moment we saw photos on your website, but the real wow factor is experiencing it in person. We all loved the attention to detail and luxury appointments. As our home base for Chillout, we were very torn between attending events and staying in and enjoying Bilson’s Landing. Happy Chillout, from some of the Melbourne Rainbow Band.” (Ben, Fiona, Chris and Andrea)
“Oh, if only every weekend was like this! A wonderful family wedding at The Convent, & we were able to host a gathering at lunch prior to the big event. Just lovely! Thanks David & Stephen for your hospitality.” (Kerry, Nigel & Eve, John & Lyn, Catherine & Eamonn)
