Cooinda is located in a peaceful lane away from the main tourist road, yet you can stroll (5 minutes) to Olinda for papers, coffee, browsing and dining. Your cottage has its own garden - front and back - an outdoor area and a barbeque. You can bring your pooch (closed yard and covered area) who will love you for the variety of great local walks. Cooinda is high in the hills; it snows in winter and is much cooler in summer! The cottage is cosy (Coonara wood heater and split system heater and air conditioner), roomy and decked out with all the mod con's. No surcharge applies for peak periods - we charge the same nightly rate all year round. Cooinda can be your launching pad for exploring other mountain villages (eg: Sassafras) a range of beautiful gardens (eg: Cloudehill), numerous mountain trails, and the wineries and other attractions of the Yarra Valley.

Cooinda is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A most wonderful place to stay. It was our 1st trip to Australia as a family, and Cooinda was our 1st place of stay. What an amazing place! It was really a great start to our holiday. Our 1st night, we ended up just staying in the place and not going out, because it was just so cozy. The extras were, well, extraordinary, such as the fireplace and the bird table and the kitchen and all. The town next to it, Olinda, is one of the most quaint towns we have visited. We wished we could stay forever.  Our only complaint is, Cooinda makes the other places we stayed in less enjoyable. How do you follow up on such a tough act as Cooinda? We would definitely be back 1 day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can honestly say this is one of the best holiday homes we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in a lot!). Perfect location walking distance from Olinda village yet away from the main road and surrounded by trees. House is spacious and well laid out with everything you can possibly need. I particularly loved all the DVDs, board games and plenty of spare blankets to rug up in front of the fire. Plenty of extras provided - teas, coffee and pantry essentials. We loved being about to feed the birds and the kids loved being able to get close up to the king parrots. Andrew was a pleasure to deal with and I would not hesitate recommending a stay at Cooinda for a relaxing time in the Dandenong Ranges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cooinda is perfect. It feels like a home you have been welcomed into instead of someones holiday house. We were there in the middle of winter with our dog and we were so very warm and cosy. It is tastefully decorated with quality items - lovely warm comfy beds, thick plush towels and heaps of firewood. Andrew is a dream to deal with and his home is beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cooinda is fabulous ��� a beautiful cottage in a beautiful area. The house is clean and spacious, and so thoughtfully set up that we felt at home from the moment we stepped in the door. It feels very private and secluded yet is so close to everything. My only regret is we couldn���t stay longer. Andrew is very helpful and easy to deal with too. I highly recommend this place and hope very much to return one day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, Words really cant do justice to this property! Amazing beautiful, peaceful, fabulous energy and so comfortable. We have stayed in quite a number of homes and this one would have to come out as our favorite. Andrew made us feel so welcome and nothing was a problem. If only we could stay forever..but work and school bells were ringing. I highly recommend this home (as it is not a house) but a home away from home. My selfishness makes me wish that it doesnt become sort after accomodation but to all concerned my wishes are for all to share its beauty. You wont regret it!! Couldnt have a nicer place to stay or better people to deal with. Perfect for all..we are family of five, but i think it would be just as great for couple. Dont hesitate, simply book, relax, have a wine and enjoy. :)
