Uplifting, inspirational, artistic and nurturing.......

Close to Convent gallery, local market, Farmers Arms Hotel and Botanical Gardens.........Zahalka House is built from the old and new to create a gentle, peaceful, light- filled retreat and stylishly decorated to celebrate the classic feel of the country home while offering the ultra comfortable aspects of modern life- you have found the perfect getaway

Escape to another era in the winter den where you can read our fantastic books, whip your frinds in a game of scrabble or backgammon, listen to your favourite music on the UE Boom or play some old classics on the record player....

Cook up a feast or enjoy an intimate breakfast on the sun drenched grand dining table or take some turkish cushions out and recline on the beautiful deck that overlooks Smith's Creek natural spring.

Gather round with the family to watch a movie or curl up in bed under generous goose down doonas and vintage linen..... Zahalka House is yours and yours alone.

Spoil yourself

An old fashioned claw foot bath and a deep mini spa, with turkish towels, dreamy white linen on king beds, antique rugs and beautiful leather lounges mixed with comfortable vintage furniture, original artwork, an exciting and eclectic mix of discs for the film buff or music lover, cool games on the shelves, exquisite books, Zahalka House is a foody, arty, sensory extravaganza..... With interiors and design by Rachael Leslie

A cooks' kitchen for those who love to entertain- a mix of old world french and spanish cookware and modern utensils, huge Ilve stove, dishwasher and rare antique crockery, old country feast size table that seats 10 for meals to remember, a lovely antique german piano and a fascinating and coveted array of colorful curios and collectables from all around the world in a welcoming and centrally heated environment....just sit...and soak it in.

Unwind outside on the huge articulated timber deck overlooking the creek with beautiful views to Cornish Hill, you are merely a short stroll to the Sunday Market....or an extravagant food platter at nearby "CLIFFY'S" deli, followed by an indulging visit from the in-house masseur. Perhaps wander down for a yummy dining room meal experience at the Perfect Drop, swim in the lake, or relax in a rejuvenating spa, indulge your inner aesthete with a walk to the convent gallery or maybe make a picnic in the the wombat gardens......


What our guests had to say-

Everything was a complete winner...right down to the calibre of cook bookery I have already recommended Zahalka to friends and family and hope that one day again I will enjoy that space with good friends or at the very least my partner.....I felt a deep connection to your musical taste as soon as I walked into that loungeroom. AGAIN, thanks for your hospitality and the great kitchen, cutlery, cook books, novels, tarot, art, art, art and of course, the balcony with a rustic view of everything that makes daylesford so special - the country expanse. Have a wonderful year.

Love nat and danny.

thanks so much for sharing this glorius oasis with us...it was exactly what we needed and it was the little details that resonated the most- the welcoming sights of freshly cut flowers, intriguing books and mags to peruse- and lots of things to inspire. Viva Zahalka Carolyn & Jen Wollongong

Our stay at Zahalka far exceeded our expectations. We were so bummed that we could not stay a 3rd night but our friends enjoyed the 3rd night luxury and shared the experience.

What a beautious cottage of reverie- the luscious quiet kind. this elegant space has been the perfect reprieve from the bustle and hustle of city life. Thankyou Zahalka House for rejuvenating my weary creative spirit. I will tell all my people about your delicious abode here on the hillside and i will remember my time here fondly and be eager to relive it soon. In gratitude, Jasmine Fitzroy

After leaving the hustle of Melbourne on a busy friday evening it was wonderful to arrive at your amazing house to find it well lit and inviting. The warm air and mellow tones were extremely refreshing- thankyou for wellcoming us into your home. We enjoyed it's unique ambience and hope to visit again. With warm wishes, Marylyn, Debbi and other Melbourne gals

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous property! Such a lovely stay! We thoroughly enjoyed our escape from the city The house is gorgeously decorated, so cosy and comfortable, it truly exceeded our expectations, please come and make our house look and feel like this!! We loved the the vintage linen and the collectables and the view finders were a real blast from the past. We had so much fun playing all the board games and the kids collected wild blackberries from the creek and made a pie! Molly, our old jack russel felt right at home and thanks for the local exploring tips (dinner at the farmers arms was our favourite) and the tomatoes from your garden and for the late check out! It was so peaceful and we relished the time away together, thanks rachael, we will return :-) x amber and family
