A lovely bush setting, with privacy and a clean and comfortable house
Tangerum bush retreat is in a secluded bush setting. The clean, well equipped and comfortable house has wrap around verandahs which means you can choose your place for dinner or relaxation to suit the weather and the time of day. There are lovely views. We very much enjoyed our stay to celebrate a family member's significant birthday, despite the gas running out in the barbecue five minutes after we started cooking our well planned seafood barbecue birthday dinner. A bit of a downer! Our two dogs loved the open space and swimming in the dam to cool off. There is plenty of local wildlife though the wombat visiting the dam was extremely ill with mange, which we followed up with wombat rescue folk in town. This may be of concern for people with dogs as it appears that wombat mange is prevalent in the area. The games room is helpful especially if you have children. However, the dam is easily accessible by children and animals through the large hole in the fence. We would happily stay here again.
We are happy Veronica that your family enjoyed celebrating a significant birthday at Tangerum as many other extended families have.
It was a downer that the barbeque gas ran out just as you were cooking your special dinner. Information about the location of the spare gas bottle is in the compendium in the house and we are always very happy to receive calls from guests if there are any queries about how things operate in the house.
Thank you for taking the care in relation to the wombat - we were not aware that there is mange in the area.
There is an abundance of wildlife in the area and the property is for rest and retreat rather than farming so yes there are holes in the fences! The large and secure veranda provides plenty of sheltered play space for dogs and children but both need supervision of course around the property.
We are grateful for the feedback and happy that Tangerum has been the site of another happy family stay!
Tangerum Bush Retreat
Having spent a lovely weekend getaway with my family at Tangerum Retreat, I will certainly be recommending the accommodation to others. It was comfortable, clean and presented exactly how it was advertised. I also enjoyed that it was pet friendly, allowing me to bring my dog. An enclosure around the house kept her safe and there was also a spacious yard where she could run around. Thank you Julie for a wonderful stay. My family and I hope to return one day soon.

Thanks Alison, we would be delighted to welcome you back any time!
Interesting...a pleasant stay apart from....
We enjoyed our stay......
Apart from being kept awake with 2 Bats flying around after midnight in 3 separate bedrooms during our 1st and 2nd nights of our 3 night stay.
Cleanliness was poor in some rooms..
Too many Cobwebs, Dead bugs etc ... and areas in the bedrooms that have Not been vacuumed properly for a long time.
Apart from these concerns it was a pleasant place to stay overall.
We were very sorry David that bats disturbed your sleep during your stay. As discussed you are the first tenants in over 10 years of hosting to have had this issue and we will ensure that there are no gaps in eaves to avoid this happening again. I believe the cleanliness issues were mainly confined to one room behind beds and this will absolutely be attended to. We work extremely hard to keep the property in tip top shape for our guests as 50 other reviews will attest. I am very glad that your group still enjoyed your stay at Tangerum.
Tangerum on Top
Since our Hol we have been doing all the "January' things & have a new smaller Laptop. Taking a lot to get the hang of it after 12 years with the last one.
We arrived Tue Jan 9, for our 5 nts. The 10 of us had BBQ & took in the views from the veranda. Ages ranged from 13 to 75, but all 10 of us tried everything. Walks, the Spa, Games Shed, Cricket in the front yard. BBQ Meals every evening, except the last, when we needed to light the heater. Warmed the house up very quickly. Did drives every most days to, incl Mt Buller. Kathleen really enjoyed her 70th Birthday with Family. Hopefully we will be back. TANGERUM is Tops ! Barry
Great for a family holiday
Fantastic venue for a large family gathering. The house is so comfortable, love the views from the verandah, especially the colourful sunsets over the hills. Some of us snowboarded at nearby Mt Buller while others enjoyed a stroll around the property, or raided the games cupboard. Thanks Julie for making us feel so welcome!
Thank you so much Heather, look forward to having you and the family back again!
We had a great stay at Tangerum! Gorgeous house and surroundings with everything you need. Short drive to Mansfield. Will definitely be back.
