"From the moment we set foot inside we realised the "Million Dollar Mountain Views" was an understatement. This place is truly priceless. An amazing place that provided us with all the essentials to relax, unwind, appreciate wildlife and nature. Just magical"

Mark & Suzi.

"Thank you for providing such a magical place. The balcony is ideal for inspiration, thought and perspective. I came here to getaway; to make the world stop. I achieved much more than a holiday. I feel inspired, energised and ready to start anew. The stars were spectacular, the ambience calming. Your home helps to influence all of natures wonder into whoever visits. Thank you."


"Our stay was one of the best experiences in a very long time.

Great location, quiet, immaculate and the owners seemed to think of everything.

We have already recommended The Evening Star to many of our friends even though we would rather keep it a secret. "


"Thank you for letting my family stay in your beautiful house. We could not have wished for anything more perfect. The city stress melted from our shoulders as we sat on your decking. We loved the house design; we kept wondering how we could have a holiday house just like it We hope we can come again."

Karen Pinkus

"We had a delightful stay in Wandi. Loved the house, the views, and the stars. Looking forward to our next stay."

Gabrielle and Alistair, Vic

"From opening the front door of The Evening Star I felt instantly at home. The place manages to provide first class, contemporary accommodation with a cosy, welcoming feel. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and plan to return some time soon. "

5 Things that you MUST do while staying here:

1. Visit Mount Buffalo national park. It is a half hour drive, and visually spectacular. You must do a walk, and see what the world looks like from this amazing rock formation. Take a swim in the pure granite swimming holes or hire a canoe on lake Catani.

2. Have a coffee or lunch at the Wandi Maze. It is a 5 minute walk from the house through the historic diggings. This is the largest living hedge maze in Australia, and the gardens surrounding the cafe are sooooooo relaxing. Try a piece of the enormous delicious passionfruit sponge cake

3. At night under a clear starry sky, you simply must stargaze from the deck of The Evening Star. The deck has been designed so that you are immersed beneath a truly spectacular night sky. There are no streetlights that will affect your experience with unwanted light. Once you stand on that deck at night and take in the beauty of the sky up here, you'll want to sleep all day just to have enough energy to do it all again the next night.

4.. Go for a day trip to up to Mount Hotham and Dinner Plain. On the way up to Mount Hotham you could stop off and walk across the Razorback to Mount Feathertop. The views and sense of space from up there are truly mind blowing. If you are feeling extravagant after this call in to the Dinner Plain Day Spa for a massage or dip in the Japanese inspired Onsen, or just kick back in the pub and have lunch or an ale. However if you just feel like hanging around Wandi and a massage at The Evening Star would cap off a relaxing day, just call Judi and she will arrange for a qualified masseur be there.

There is so much to do and see you'll need a whole week

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surpasses all expectations. I booked this house due to previous reviews and photos and then we arrived and were blown away. Cannot pick a single fault with the house, the amenities and even the locality. A bottle of wine and nibblies waiting for us, a large array of coffee pods and wonderful teas, I'm sure the choccie biscuits were to nibble on when having coffee but they were so yummy I ate them just after we arrived. Fresh bread, eggs bacon, jams etc. The dvd's, the games, the magazines, the books (this house has it's own office...amazing!), even tourist brochures so you don't have to go anywhere to organise what you want to do, .....I could go on forever. My partner and I loved the telescope, we saw craters on the moon! I could not get enough of that marvelous view and I loved the walk at the back of the property meandering across small swing bridges over flowing creeks, seeing the mist flow through the trees as the sun crept up over the hill was so beautiful. Linen sheets were so good I am now going to buy some for my own home. And I took advantage of the warm thrown rugs everywhere whilst lounging in front of the fire. We went for a short weekend away, little bit of sightseeing and mostly just relaxation time. I wish we had more time just to spend at the house. Exceptional property that you cannot beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Beautiful! We absolutely loved our stay at The Evening Star, we just wished we'd booked a few more nights! The house, the views, the peacefullness, the tiny of town of Wandi were just beautiful. But it's also the little extras that The Evening Star provided that put it a head above the rest. We had lovely fresh ingriedients in the fridge for a cooked breakfast, a thoughtful bottle of wine and some nibbles were provided, the spa bath and bathroom are just incredible, and the genorosity of towels was great! We were also provided with soap and toiletries (the shower cap was a blessing) , you always forget something when you travel so these little extras were great. Oh and the King bed and the beautiful linen sheets. I didn't think that the linen sheets would be that special, but they were lush. Thank you Evening Star, we can't wait to come back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Photos don't do The Evening Star justice. The Evening Star is unfaultable. Upon opening the front door we were still unprepared for how amazing everything is even after viewing all the online photos. The property has a way of making you feel as if you were home. Everything is thought of from firewood,cooking utensils etc but also to a selection of pellows for that perfect nights sleep. My only suggestion is to upload a photo of the ensuite to the website, as I was blown away by the shear size of it. Would highly recommend everyone to stay.
