Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply perfect Nest kept us warm and cosy over the Easter weekend. Conveniently located to the Main Street and a short stroll to Lake Daylesford. Nest provided all the comforts of home in a beautiful garden setting - perfect for the four-legged family members as well as the two! We can't recommend Nest highly enough. Thank you Sarah for your thoughtful hospitality and a delightful stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for dogs and owners Lots of space in secure back yard for our 2 dogs. Also a nice area for owners to sit outside. Quality amenities and beautiful decor. Open plan living so we took a portable barrier to partition off areas especially at night. Within easy walking distance of Daylesford itself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from When it appears to good to be true. Nest or is that "Unrest" Nest......early January 2017...upon our arrival to this pet friendly establishment, we felt relaxed at the layout and immediately started to unwind... the temperature was above 35...thankfully the owners/cleaner left the air con on for our arrival....the air con was doing its best, but really starting to struggle with the temperature in the house rising rapidly. Sarah the owner is great, easy to contact and responded to emails prior to our arrival in a timely manner. The decor is lovely, very well styled, it's small, clean has loads of light the layout is really good and the fireplace would be toastie in winter. The deer head I loved, I want one. The crockery, cutlery, coffee cups all really nice. There's a dishwasher, washing machine, throw covers, scatter cushions, excellent books, plus the bathroom is big with a deep bath all very modern. Awesome soft towels, body wash, scented candles and Mor soaps. Bottle of wine and a day bed, Herbs in glass jars, earl grey tea, coffee even an eames chair all included in the excellent price. I thought I was in heaven at first. The bedrooms are nice but so hot on this day, the air con does not reach nor cool the bedrooms at all, one bedroom is very small the beds were not for us, not comfortable at all, the main bedroom has one of those wrought iron beds they look pretty the reality is they squeak, creak and moan every time anyone moves, no sleep had here. Beds are important to us, what is the point of going away if your unable to sleep because of discomfort, creaks and squeaks? Our Dogs were there to enjoy the outside retreat...not for long...it was nothing like the pictures very overgrown with 40cm high weeds throughout the grass area and the grass itself although still green, long, shabby and unkept. Our dogs are 1kg and 2kg we booked Nest purely for the outdoor area as we live in an apartment in the city and wanted the dogs to enjoy the outdoors. Unfortunately given the unkept outside and the size of our dogs we were nervous about not seeing snakes, ticks or other nasties so back inside....I don't know which was cooler - inside or out. Fortunately chihuahuas love the heat, unfortunately they couldn't go outside because of the unkept grass area. Time for bed. The main bed as I mentioned "creaks". Not good if you move a muscle. Also the temperature in there was still at a high. My husband chose to sleep in the other bedroom. He took the supplied fan with him.....its good but noisy and the windows have no coverings meaning every time a car passed its headlights lit up the walls plus you wake up with the dawn light....he didn't last long and ended up trying to sleep on the couch. For us Unfortunately, the unkept garden, uncomfortable beds and Mother Nature made our stay unbearable. My main gripe: I really wish they had taken the time just to mow the grass, that's all that was required a good cutting. Very disappointed at this lack of care as it ruined our stay. If I had known the condition of the grass area I wouldn't of booked until it had been mowed. If the temperature is right, Nest would be a pleasant stay if you don't mind weeds and an not so comfortable bed ....if not, like us, you may leave your holiday destination early, we didn't stay the fully booked time and left the day after we arrived. We understand Sarah cannot control the weather, she can however have comfort in the bedrooms, a great air con, some blinds and perhaps change the photos online to reflect the true outside condition or mow the grass! Nest could easily be 5 stars, it should be 5 stars, a place where we could and would stay over and over, just a little gardening, some blinds and for us a newer bed is required, the house is just lovely, it looks like the photos online. I loved the styling and it's clean, fresh and bright. It should of and could of been a nest but for us and our dogs unfortunately it wasn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Perfect!! My husband and I, along with our fur child Bernie stayed for 2 nights, the only downside being that we hadn't booked for longer! The house is beautiful, perfect for a few nights or a longer stay. The backyard was ideal and the location was superb. An easy walk to town or slightly steeper walk down to the lake meant that we didn't need to use the car at all. We will definitely be back!
