About REGINA BURTON
* I am a single 61 year old mother of two and my beautiful daughter Cara is in the photo taken with me. I have two beautiful grand children-' Kaylee aged 6 and a newborn grandson Zach born in late July to my son' and his partner. * Cara helped me with the setting up of Tres Angelique Apartment which has been operating successfully for 3 years and often booked out in the month of July. We both like angels hence the name and angel pictures and statues found in the living areas of the apartment. * I have lived in the Melbourne suburb of Skye for 15 years which is not far from Seaford beach. * I am a self employed domestic cleaner and ex beauty therapist. So I am fussy and want the apartment to look lovely and clean for my guests. * I have decorated the apartment with many little treasures I have found while shopping at markets, op shops& antique shops and I also imported a very colourful hand knotted rug from Turkey to brighten up the living area. So the apartment is furnished a little bit differently in a way that compliments the era of the building. * I love listening to most genres of music so my guests can also listen to music. I like going to the theatre and concerts, visiting historic buildings, art galleries and dining out and swimming at my local beaches. *I have a connection to Ballarat as some of my ancestors lived there and my grandfather came out from Wales to strike it rich on the goldfields but found it too tough and didn't make a big fortune.
REGINA BURTON purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why REGINA BURTON chose Wendouree
* It has been a lovely escape from the stresses of working and living in Melbourne for me. * Having two car spaces on the title was a bonus and the fact that there are security gates for both cars and pedestrians is good. *There are beautiful courtyard gardens and acres of land with large trees *Beautiful stonework, arches, wide verandas, balconies, bell towers, attic rooms and old church. * Location with everything one needs being so close without the need to drive everywhere for shopping, banking, dining etc. as Stockland Wendouree , Bulky Goods shops in Gillies Street and the Howitt Village shops are within a short to medium walk. * It is so pleasant to walk down Gillies Street and through the Ballarat Botanical Gardens to Lake Wendouree and dine at Pipers by the Lake restaurant. *For those that like to exercise you can walk, jog, cycle or roller blade around the 11 km lakeside track.Or row or do paddle boarding on the lake. *Many annual festivals, Iron man,rowing & cycling events, music concerts, farmers markets & public events are held around or on Lake Wendouree and you can walk to them as parking is a problem when events are held lakeside. *Ballarat Aquatic and Lifestyle Centre is in Gillies Street at the rear of the botanical gardens with pools of different temperatures and a gymnasium. * Many a short drive will take you to more than 3 lakes, reservoirs, forests, wineries, nurseries, historical towns , museums, markets, antique shops, art galleries, bird and wildlife sanctuaries, 2 local golf courses, racecourse and harness racing, AFL games, mini golf and go karting. *Sovereign Hill and Eureka Stockade less than a 10 minute drive *Great places to dine in Wendouree, Sturt St Ballarat, Lyrdiard St North, Bridge St Mall, boutique hotels in side streets and sportsmans clubs.

This was our 4th stay at Regina's apartment and once again we thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything was provided for our breakfasts during our stay and Regina kept in touch with all requirements prior to us arriving.
Morag it has been a pleasure to have you back again for the fourth year in a row.

Thanks Matt for choosing to stay at Tres Angelique which is well located and very convenient when many annual and other public events are held in or near Wendouree like the recent annual Beer Festival that your company helped set up the bars for.
The family enjoyed theis unique accommodation and all the facilities very much.
Thank you Edwin it was a pleasure having your family stay as you looked after the apartment and left it nice and tidy. I noticed you had listened to some of the music Cd's and watched a movie or two.
