Rated 5 out of 5 by from a perfect place to refresh from city madness By husband and I stayed here twice already and this time with our 11 month baby. All 3 of us enjoyed the space very much! There is simply nothing I could complain about :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxation plus Absolute perfection...my hubby & I stayed for 3nights (compliments of our daughters) who also stayed previously. Total peace & quiet, relaxing. Wood fire was great also as weather turned cold & wet. Bush walk on site was great also. We all plan on returning again soon. Jenny

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful bush setting We enjoyed our stay and will certainly return. As keen birdwatchers, it was a perfect base to explore all of the great birding sites throughout the Bunyip State Park. The accommodation was very comfortable and the kitchen was well-stocked for anyone looking to self-cater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Stress Breaker! This property is one of the best we have stayed in. The hosts were more then friendly and very welcoming. The accommodation is set up wonderfully with everything you need for a relaxing and stress free get-away. This was the first of many trips to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tranquil getaway Beautiful tranquil setting to get away from it all and enjoy the sounds of nature (or the sound of silence!). The house is cosy, comfortable and modern. Loved it!
