From the minute we walked in we felt comfortable and at home, lovely kitchen with all facilities including working dishwasher, great comfy lounge, air con kept us cool - would like to stay in winter to get that fire going! Plenty of beds to accommodate everyone and the setting is beautiful, sitting on the huge deck in the evening and watching the rabbits chase each other around. Blackberries growing below which we added to our breakfast. Board games if you fancy, TVs which we didn't even turn on and lots of brochures on what is happening and available in the area. Good communication from owner, we would not hesitate to recommend this house for a holiday, loved it!

Run down. Dirty
I spent the first few hours of my holiday trying to tidy the place up before my relatives arrived.
Then spent the next few hours once they arrived discussing what we should do because we were all so disappointed.
I wanted to get in contact with the owners so that they could rectify the situation rather than leave a bad review online. They seemed surprised as the house had apparently just been cleaned.
They promised us they would send a cleaner the next day at noon and they never showed up or tried to get in contact and offer a refund.
The oven smelt of rancid fat, the fridge was missing all its shelves, the duvet covers were dirty, the showers looked like they hadn't been cleaned in quite a while, the sink plug holes were black. The fireplace had 2 buckets of ash still in it that we had to empty before using. There were a lot of dead flies around considering I was told the house was just cleaned.
The BBQ was dirty, the trampoline and tyre swing broken. The decking was faded.
Just about everything in the photos that was appealing was either broken, peeling, dusty or dirty.

Perfect country escape
With limited time for a getaway we were yearning for a break from the City and found peace and comfort just outside of Daylesford at DiStefanos. It was a humble, yet spacious and personally decorated property with room and amenities to suit our two families. The bedrooms were large with lovely quality doonas and pillows. For the 8 of us there was always a corner of the house or land to escape to, out on the deck, by the dam, or in one of the three separate living areas. Our kids enjoyed bushwalks and cricket in the backyard. The kitchen was modern and well-placed within the house. This was the escape to the country we all needed!

Our stay ended leaving a lot to be desired due to a lack of cleanliness and maintenance.
On our arrival rubbish from previous guests was strewn in front of the house and the bin overflowing. The house smelt strongly of cooking fat which was primarily coming from the dishwasher. The dishwasher appeared blocked and would not function. The rest of the kitchen had not been cleaned properly in some time and the oven was unusable. The fridge only had one shelf left and this was also broken. Despite the owner advising she would attend to the rubbish and dishwasher, nothing was done and I was then unable to make any further contact by phone or text.
The rest of the house is also in need of a professional clean to bring it to an acceptable standard as it currently wouldn't pass for a backpackers.
The photos of the house are obviously quite old as the paint is now peeling and the deck has deteriorated with a number of raised nails protruding from the boards causing a hazard for bare feet.
The paths were also overgrown with blackberry bushes and we had to cut these back ourselves to avoid anyone getting spiked.
In the property's current condition we would not recommend this accommodation.
