Just an hour from Melbourne’s CBD and nestled in the hills above the famous Yarra Valley is this stunning, designer renovated, eco-friendly home. With crisp white walls, lime-washed floors, retro features, a massive chef’s kitchen, and breathtaking views, it's certainly a gorgeous place to relax and unwind.

And kids under 18 stay free. So even if you are a family of 8 - mama, papa and 6 kids - you only pay the base rate.

The house features three enormous, light-filled bedrooms all with BIRs.The master suite includes a king bed, a walk-in robe with laundry chute, and an ensuite with stunning views. The second light-filled bedroom features a queen bed and leander cot. The third large bedroom features a separate single bed plus a bunk bed with a single on top and double underneath. There is also a vintage fold-out couch in the sleeping zone of the house that comfortably accommodates one child. And a single day bed with inner-spring mattress in the toy/games space. A re-conditioned, 100 year old claw foot bath takes pride of place in the enormous vintage-style bathroom.

A 3.7 metre long gleaming white state-of-the-art bench-top, a top of the line European 6 burner stove, and a walk-in larder are highlights of the chef’s kitchen. The spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen area feature high ceilings, a wood burning heater, double glazing, and roof, wall and floor insulation ensuring you’re warm and cozy even when it snows.

The established garden features plenty of herbs, mature fruit trees and bursts into colour every spring. And the many chestnut trees make autumn spectacular

Sitting at the end of a quiet country lane, the house capitalises on the breathtaking views across neighbouring farmland to Mt St Leonards. June/July is lambing season in Kinglake, and the neighbouring property usually welcomes over 200 newborn lambs. Sit by the fire and enjoy spectacular moon rises. Watch the hot air balloons appear through the dawn mist framed perfectly by the enormous double-glazed windows. In summer, open the huge screened, bi-fold doors to capture the cooling southerly breezes. Or hang out on the vast, wrap-around decks there's a BBQ and outdoor settings.

LINEN: To try and keep accomodation costs down we don't normally supply linen. However, if you're coming from out of town, or if it's inconvenient for you to bring your own, we can supply all linen for a reasonable extra charge from $45 per stay depending on the number in your party.

Environmentally Friendly

Our home reflects our passion for both the natural environment and for intelligent, beautiful design. It features solar power, rainwater tanks, a septic system, green design features including a mudroom airlock and living, green wall, and zero VOC finishes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely property Our family of 4 adults and two children had a wonderful stay in this house. It is so well set up for families, with the playroom filled with toys and books, and the cubby on the verandah was a delight for the little ones. The kitchen had every sort of cooking equipment we could have wanted but we took advantage of the local caterer, Bowl Full of Soul, for one of our dinners. The location on the edge of the town means that the place is so peaceful and seeing the morning sun rise over the hills was a delight, as was watching the local farm animals. We saw a wombat on the property on both evenings we were there. The school oval was at the end of the driveway and we were able to play on the play equipment there, and the large town playground was a winner. Bron kept us up to date with everything that we needed and we had a wonderful time in this huge, light and airy house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Idyllic vistas and family fun We had a wonderful few days staying here, and were joined by another family for part of that time. The house easily accommodated us all. The children loved exploring the garden, the bush, picking herbs, finding the outside cubby house on the verandah, and my son said ‘wow, that’s bath’s posh’ when he saw the gorgeous freestanding tub in the bathroom. The selection of toys and books was also a real bonus! We loved the log fire and the house had plenty of heating for those ‘fresh’ evenings. The location was incredibly picturesque, surrounded by open fields on one side and bush views on the other. There is an amazing children’s playground just near the pub, and beautiful walks, wineries and restaurants are easily accessible by car. It’s a great region to go exploring! Our hosts were incredibly helpful, responsive and thoughtful. It was a real pleasure to stay in their beautiful home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tranquil, restorative and beautifully designed. We had a truly wonderful time in this beautiful home. It has the most wonderful views, is well laid out and perfect for a family to have solace and communal time. The wildlife is wonderful too as is the proximity to Melbourne. Bron was so warm and helpful.
