Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely disappointing I had booked this place for the lead up to my wedding and was disappointed with the whole experience of the house. Several aspects of the house were dirty, damaged and broken. All dishes were dirty and required washing before use. There was mouldy food in the fridge that we were required to clean. Upon arrival we discovered that the possums had been in to a bag of rubbish left in the garage, as the bin was overflowing and had not being emptied on our arrival. The owner arrived after our check in time and should not have been there. We proceeded to have a discussion with the owner about what we should do with our rubbish, as the bin was not emptied for us to use. We came to the arrangement that we would place our rubbish in the green waste bin and he would come back after our stay when the bin had been emptied to place in to the right bin. The owner then proceeded to fine me 100 dollars of my bond claiming I placed rubbish in the wrong bin. This is extremely unfair as we followed his directions after he did not provide an empty bin for us on arrival. The owner did not receive a fine from the council, so I don’t understand why he decided to charge us 100 dollars when we only followed the agreed arrangement. It was an extremely disappointing situation. Eltham is a lovely place to visit but I highly recommend not staying at this property.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what we expected This house was very disappointing. We expected an old house that was tastefully renovated. Not. It was definitely not up to my standard. Mould in the shower, towel rail fell off, cigarettes found under th bed, dishwasher full of dirty dishes & the kitchen was full of pots & pans that looked like they came from the op shop & looked like they were ready for the tip. The dishes were the same & were all odd. As for the back yard being child friendly, we had two toddlers & the decking area had rope around it that had half rotted away & there were steps that weren't enclosed. On a very busy road, so lots of road noise. Not happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful property . ideal location we are a family of 4 . 2 kids aged 9 and 7 and we really enjoyed our stay. The house was in a great location and was in perfect condition. it is very close to fast food restaurants and is 5 minuets drive from Eltham town center where there is everything you could possibly need It was warm , clean and welcoming. There was lots of space inside and outside for the kids to play. It has a large enclosed back garden with decking which has comfortable seats. The bathrooms were spacious and very clean with lots of towels provided . The beds were very comfortable with lots of beading provided, even a full change of bed clothes. We had cable tv and wifi throught our stay at no extra charge. the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need . we would defiantly stay here again .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful family escape My family, consisting of three generations (!), had a very pleasant stay at Eltham Retreat. We were impressed by our host's hospitality who provided us with lots of information regarding local attractions for all ages, tasty snacks and even baby bath wash!! A well equipped kitchen, child friendly garden and close to great food shops and cafe as well as a small park meant we didnt have to go far for anything. The house itself had all we needed and the 2 bathrooms and toilets kept every happy!!I

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great place for a family Excellent property at a great location... Terrific parks and (quite unexpectedly) one of the best fish and chips and charcoal chicken restaurants in Eltham. So, if you are after a relaxing weekend or two in one of Melbourne's finest neighborhoods.... This is definitely the place to consider.
