Designed by interior architects Hearth Studio, Jacky Winter Gardens brings together the calming waters of Clematis Creek, the rich soil of the gardens, the pure air of the Dandenong Ranges and every modern convenience you can imagine to give you a wholly satisfying holiday experience.
Our mission is to offer private and secluded luxury accommodation for visitors to the hills, including singles, couples and small groups, as well as showcase the work of our artists and incorporate it into the day-to-day life of the house.
Through our monthly artist-in-residence program we also support other commercial artists working in any discipline.
We've feathered our nest with work from some of The Jacky Winter Group's world-renowned stable of artists. From custom-made glasswork and wallpaper, to games and framed prints, you'll become acquainted with new artists, or perhaps be reunited with some you already know.
The beautiful Clematis Creek meanders along the bottom of the gardens, and its cheerful burbling is the aural backdrop to your stay. If you want to get closer to the water there is easy and safe access down to the creekbank, which makes it the ideal spot for meditation or private reflection.
Located just 45-minutes from Melbourne by car, and situated within walking distance to the town centre with its wonderful Cameo Cinemas, Jacky Winter Gardens straddles the two worlds of nature and civilisation, achieving a perfect holiday balance for solo travellers, couples and small groups.
You can find more information and photos of the property online at our dedicated property site which isn't difficult to find ;)
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING STAYZ CALENDAR
As our property is listed on a number of different booking engines, and Stayz does not support calendar Syncing, the current calendar displayed here is not an accurate reflection of current bookings. Please contact us first before booking to avoid disappointment.

Other Things to Note
Jacky Winter Gardens is the perfect retreat for solo travellers or couples, but we are able to accommodate up to five guests: two in the master bedroom, two in the living room on the double-bed fold-out sofa, and one in the studio on a single sofa bed.
Each additional guest (beyond the first two) will incur a tariff of 25.00 per night.
While we are fellow parents and dog owners, the property has only been designed for human adults in mind and is currently unsafe for children and pets. Sorry! :(
Unfortunately, due to site limitations, there is no wheelchair access at this time.
Due to our location in a high fire risk area, we also have detailed Fire Safety policies which are outlined on our website, which once again is not hard to find.
There is absolutely no smoking inside the property, both in the main house and the studio.
If you must smoke while you're on the grounds, please take care to always fully extinguish and dispose properly of your cigarettes in the provided ashtrays.
The Jacky Winter family has put a great deal of love and care into the home and the selection of furnishings and amenities, and we look forward to sharing it with you in its most pristine condition for many years to come. We know that when you set foot inside it you will treat it as your own, and so to that end we have not instituted any sort of bond or security deposit as of yet.
Accidents do happen though, so please let us know immediately if something has broken, is not working, has been stained or marked, or not in the condition you expected. Otherwise we do ask you to take special care to leave the property as you found it :)
That said we do reserve the right to demand payment for any unusual damage, losses, or incidents requiring specialised cleaning. Again, we don't expect this will happen but we just need to cover all our bases.
In the unlikely event that this needs to happen, we will be in touch directly to discuss first. Thank you for your understanding.
