Travel less than an hour and a half out of Melbourne and be welcomed by Casosach. A 150 acre property all to yourself with uninterrupted views of the pristine Wurdibuloc Reservoir.
Casosach boasts a 4 year old 5 bedroom house which sleeps 10 adults however can cater for 12.
Whatever your reason for getting away, Casosach will not disappoint.
The property is large enough to give the kids breakfast, slap on the sunscreen and hat, or beanie and coat, then send them off to find some fun and adventure for hours on end while you relax on the deck or by the solar heated pool and watch the world go by.
If it's a cold wintry day, light the doublesided open fireplace, grab a book off the well stocked bookshelves, kick off the shoes and snuggle up on the couch for the afternoon.
With a large well designed kitchen, including a double wall oven, cooking up a storm is both enjoyable and easy. The kitchen has all mod cons and gadgets required for any meal.
The bonus of Casosach is that it is used as a family getaway so you get to enjoy a fully equiped house, not just a holiday house with the bare essentials.
Because Casosach is a family home we limit Stayz to a maximum of one booking per month so we are able to get to the property every other weekend to both maintain and enjoy ourselves.
We do allow dogs at Casosach, however we would prefer them to stay outside. They will be able to find many cosy spots to curl up around the extra deep full house verandah.
Casosach is a working farm, so depending on the time of year, you will be able to enjoy watching the cows grazing in the paddocks, or appreciate the hundreds of round hay bales dotted in the paddocks.
Forget the rest of the world exists
Drive up Casosach's 400 metre driveway lined with Oak Trees and you will find your body and mind relaxed before you reach the house.
Walk inside the house to blackwood floorboards and warm stonework hiding your new view during your stay. It's hard not to catch your breath when you experience the view of the Reservoir for the first time.
Bedrooms 1 and 2 both feature a Queen Bed and Ensuite, accompanied by external sliding doors for easy private access to the full verandah surrounding the house.
Bedroom 1 overlooks the vast Wurdibuloc Reservoir so you can wake up to your very own sunrise every morning. Or perhaps you would like to soak in your own private spa with a glass of champagne and watch the sunset.
Enjoy dinner at the 12 seat dining table, then set the kids up in the Rumpus Room with some popcorn and a good movie. That's them sorted Which leaves you to either retire to the deck outside on one of the outdoor couches or set yourselves up in the Theatre to watch your own movie in peace
Being situated on top of a hill, the views over the district are calming and non onbstructed. On most nights from the comfort of the deck you can observe a stunning sunset and when darkness sets in the only distractions will be the headlights of cars heading to Lorne or Apollo Bay on the other side of the Reservoir.
If you are lucky enough to experience Casosach during the summer months, get ready to spend the day beside the solar heated pool. With numerous pool toys and pool side seating, this is the perfect way to spend a summer's day. The large pool has crystal blue water, views to make your heart skip a beat and the freshest air you can breath. Pure heaven
Let the kids get right into the farming aspect. Go for a wander through the cows in the paddocks down to either of the two dams. Entertain the kids by throwing a few lines in and try your luck at catching a few yabbies. Who knows, you might even catch enough for a tasty dinner
Room to be together and alone at the same time
Casosach was designed to accommodate for a large number of people while ensuring that everyone can escape to their own space.
The full verandah provides a number of quiet spots to escape. There are enough bedrooms to accommodate everyone. Bedrooms 1 and 2 are located at one of the house with Bedrooms 3, 4 and 5 at the other end, consisting of a queen bed in Bedroom 3 and two singles in each of Bedroom 4 and 5. The kid's Rumpus Room is situated near Bedrooms 3, 4 and 5 and the Theatre is near Bedroom 1 and 2.
If you don't want to watch TV and simply want to enjoy the quietness of the property and soak in the view, then settle yourself on one of the leather lounges in the Lounge Room. This room simply has bookshelves, a doublesided open fireplace with detachable screens, double sliding doors with flyscreens which open out to the deck and stunning views of the Reservoir.
In the morning, there is nothing better than to open the double sliding doors off the Dining Room and let the fresh air in while you enjoy breakfast inside or out.
Being a family house, babies are catered for. A wooden cot presides within Bedroom 1, a high chair is in the kitchen and a further portacot is available if required. If you want to leave your toys at home, not a problem, Casosach has a bag full of different toys to entertain your little treasure.
