About Lisa Emrose
All businesses depend on quality people to drive success, and Rejuvenate Stays is no exception. Meet our founder, Lisa Emrose. Lisa comes from a service background in the corporate sector and started Rejuvenate Stays in response to discussions with property owners who felt there was a better way to manage their city and regional rental and investment properties. Lisa added the element of a more personalised service and a simple desire to provide an environment where guests feel good about all aspects of their stay. This service ethic begins at the initial enquiry experience across a portfolio of quality properties, enhanced by the support of a consistent point of contact along the way. Why Rejuvenate Stays? • Our critical point of differentiation is the utilisation of the full platform of booking agencies across the short term accommodation market to ensure properties have better representation, thus maximising bookings and occupancy to deliver better returns • A prime example of our service excellence is a tailored On Line Guide Book which is details everything guests need to know regarding the property and its region. Guests have access to everything they need to know about their stay, all at the touch of a button. • In order to ensure we maintain the highest possible ranking for our properties and to stay on top of our service-first approach, we ask our guests to complete a survey to tell us what they liked about their stay and to highlight areas where we can enhance the experience further. Rejuvenate Stays offers: • High quality properties, from chic city and urban apartments for a quick business trip or holiday to family beach and country homesteads escapes • A service first culture • A philosophy of genuine desire to provide great holiday experiences for all guests, as well as a drive to provide superior management for all property owners • An understanding of your need for a consistent point of contact and live access to booking details

Perfect house for a rural retreat. Amazing setting with the river behind and nearby to the beach and towns for shops etc.
House was clean and well equipped. Don't recommend the sofa bed though, it makes for an uncomfortable nights sleep!
All the family loved it and had the best holiday, thanks to Rejuvenate for being helpful throughout.
Thanks for the great review Billy. See you again soon.
Great property, lovely area
We really enjoyed staying for 2 nights and loved the place and area. Mattresses could have been better but it's still a 5 star place for me.
Thanks for the great review Amir. we do appreciate your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you again anytime.

Comfort and relaxation
This very spacious and comfortable house was perfect for a winter getaway. Beautiful views of the river and surrounding countryside. Log fire plus reverse cycle heating. So close to Warrnambool and great ocean road, yet very peaceful. We want to bring our extended family here for a family get-together.
Lovely Homestead with river view
A very spacious homestead with a great view down to the river. Our trainspotter son loved the glimpses of the v-line train across the valley. Lots of room for a large family and both formal and informal living areas for kids to spread out and mum and dad to have some quiet reading time too. The cows over the fence and the ropes at the swimming spot 100m up river added to the charm. It is about 10 mins drive to the centre of Warrnambool or the patrolled beach.
