Manna Gums is a stunning modern property that features fantastic rural views within the limits of the Daylesford township.

With contemporary styling, full kitchen and a fabulous 8 person hot tub in the private rear courtyard, this property will suit families, friends or girls weekends wanting a rural escape but with the benefits of being in town as it is still within walking distance to Farmers Arms Hotel, Cliffy's, Sunday Markets, Botanical Gardens & the Convent Gallery or a 2 minute drive to the main street of Daylesford and all its cafes (1.2km to Daylesford's main street).

The comfortable beds at Manna Gums are made up ready for your arrival. The bedding configuration in the house is flexible - 2 bedrooms have a queen bed each, the other 2 bedrooms have singles which can be zipped together and made up into king beds on your request - there is also a further single bed in one of the king/single rooms. We also have additional stretcher beds (same height as a standard bed with full mattresses) that are able to be placed within the existing bedrooms to accommodate a further 3 guests (house can accommodate a total of 12 guests or a maximum of 14 if you book Ashlar Villa too)

Bedroom 2: 1 x Queen bed

Walking distance to main street

Comfortable beds

Although Manna Gums can accommodate up to 12 guests, it is not recommended that this be for more than 3 families. It also doesn't really work if you have more than 4 couples plus additional adult guests as the additional beds needed for these extra guests are placed within existing bedrooms meaning that couples lose their bedroom privacy by sharing a room (obviously this can work if the extras are children or if the proposed stay is a girl's weekend or similar and guests are comfortable sharing bedrooms with friends or family)

LARGER GROUPS (maximum 14 including children) may be accommodated by booking both Manna Gums and Ashlar ( www.stayz.com.au/69917 ). A maximum of 12 can stay in Manna Gums with an additional 2 within the villa - Ashlar; We can place 2 stretcher beds within Ashlar for family groups however please check with property manager as to your groups requirements as ashlar is a very open-plan property and may not be suitable for all guests. Enquire with our property manager to obtain a quote for your chosen dates/numbers? This scenario works well with groups of 11-12 too with the main house only accommodating its standard 9 guests within bedrooms and the extra guests sleeping in the villa and coming to the main house for meals and socialising....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from close to town and convenient enjoyed our stay, but - spa was greasy and not inviting. Not enough comfortable seating in lounge room for the number of people house accommodates

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Holiday Home What a fabulous property for a large group to stay. Our party of 5 adults and 3 children had plenty of room to move. Cooking was a breeze with the open plan area. Nicely located to all we wanted to see and do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Family Holiday We thoroughly enjoyed our Manna Gums experience. Starting with great communication from owner we were further impressed with a clean and comfortable home within walking distance to town, markets , The Farmers Arms Pub ( for fab food and atmosphere) and beautiful country walks a short car drive away. Three bedrooms face onto a lovely country scene of a herd of serene bovine grazing in the adjacent paddocks. The lovely covered outside area was very suitable for our large gathering. We would all recommend Manna Gums :-)
