Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good times in Grampians As a group of eight we recently stayed at Mandala Stonehouse Over Easter. It was perfect for our stay with comfortable beds and room for our own personnal space to relax as well as amenity to cook together and enjoy time as a group. It was great to reconnect to holiday pursuits such as scrabble and table tennis and enjoy the wildlife epceciallynthe the extensive bird life. The location was perfect to explore the north part of the Grampains away from the crowded Halls Gap during that time of the year as well as visit great walking spots and caves. Highly recommend this as a location for large groups. The owner was a delight to communicate with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Memories forever What an excellent house for large family group. It is truly a home away from home. A great house to self cater absolutely everything you would need. It was cooler and the open fire was fantastic. Because there is no internet or phone reception is brings back the days of old, where you actually have to hold a conversation, play games, get a lot of fresh air, read a book...beds were very comfortable and the way the home was presented was beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recharged, Its got everything! This amazing holiday brought 4 families together from 2 states for 6 nights. The accommodation is so well planned out that people could be together in the main living area to enjoy games, food, a chat, coffee etc, while still being able to get some private time in the 2nd living area and game spaces. These included table tennis and foosball tables. My mornings with a coffee shared with the cockatoos, kangaroos and pet sheep was my quiet time. Chat ran free and easy even with the grandkids mainly because of the lack of internet and phone coverage....a bonus in this day and age. Theres also lots of walks and views to see. Do yourself a favor and take your next holiday at this wonderful place and regain your sanity

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful property, great location We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mandala, the only problem was we had to leave this idyllic place. The house exceeded our expectations, the sense of tranquility and close to nature in luxury surroundings, will stay with us for a long time. The owner was very easy to deal with. We did not get to use all of the houses features so we are planning our return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing luxury in the Grampians A fantastic property, away from the tourist throngs in Halls Gap but close to an array of excellent hikes and stunning touring routes through the central and northern Grampians. The house even better than the photos, with several areas to relax. The property was a fantastic surprise, a beautiful property to explore with a lovely dam and some very friendly sheep! Even enjoyed shooting a few hoops on the basketball court after a nice hike up hollow mountain.
