Nestled in the heart of the spa capital of Australia, The Hive offers guests a superb country getaway.
Set on an acre of natural bushland just two minutes drive from the centre of Hepburn Springs, and surrounded by a beautiful bush landscape, there is no doubt you will forget the hustle and bustle of life here. Only 70 minutes easy drive from downtown Melbourne, everything you need is provided, so you just need to turn up and relax. The Hive has 8 bedrooms, separated into 4 ‘suites’ with two bedrooms with an ensuite in the middle see floorplan for bed arrangements. There's plenty of room for 24 of you to spread out. In fact, we believe The Hive is the biggest shared living accomodation in the region. It's ideal for multiple families wanting to holiday together, family reunions, craft groups, yoga retreats, wedding guest accommodation, ladies weekends, small conferences/classes and much more.
The living area is extremely generous, with plenty of space to spread out. The lounge area includes a big-screen TV with 5.1 surround sound, with a HDMI input for laptop input. The dining tables can be reconfigured if you wish, and the TV in the dining area can also be set to view the laptop input. There are two light courts, which provide excellent alternate rumpus areas, each with a TV and one with a Wii console and the other an extensive collection of boardgames.
The wood heater in the living area is the heart of a hydronic heating system that distributes silent warmth throughout all the living areas, making even the coolest winter retreat a delight. Each bedroom also has an electric panel heater to quickly and easily heat your bedroom. Firewood is provided.
In addition to the indoor living areas, The Hive boasts an expansive deck area, with a commercial BBQ, plenty of outdoor furniture, a large in-deck trampoline and a wonderful outlook.
We know from our other property Quintana that some things make a stay so much better when holidaying with a crowd. At The Hive, we're pleased to offer two dishwashers, two fridges, three ovens and metres of benchspace in the semi-commercial kitchen. There's heaps of cutlery and crockery, sharp knives that actually cut and plenty of quality appliances to make catering a breeze. The layout is also spacious and perfect for sharing meal preparation.
The property is commercially rated, so high safety standards have been applied to it's design and construction. It has fire proof walls and doors to the bedrooms, a sprinkler system and a disabled suite meeting with AS 1428.1. We believe this is one of only two fully compliant accommodation options in the region.
Smoking is strictly prohibited.
Sorry, no pets - allergy friendly accommodation.
Not suitable for bachelor/hens parties nor schoolies, and whilst the setting may be lovely for a wedding, unless your guest list is 24 people or less, we cannot accommodate your special day sorry.
We're not a fan of the way many properties advertise "from" a certain rate, but by the time you've added extra charges for additional guests/linen/bond, the price nearly doubles. Especially for large families, like our own.
For this reason, we've tried to keep the pricing inclusive and simple, and the availability and pricing calculated by the Stayz website is always correct, but to summarise.....
Weekends & public holidays: $1500/night
There is a two night minimum stay, and public holiday weekends have either a 3 or 4 night minimum stay.
These prices include the full capacity of the house up to 24 guests, as well as linen.
Internet is available, subject to a fair use policy.
There is car parking for plenty of cars, with easy access and no scarily-steep driveways to tackle.
We hope all of these features will add to the enjoyment of your stay.
