About Marios Arletos
Patricia and Marios We are a family of 4 who love getting out to our property in Daylesford with friends for a wine, sharing a great home cooked meal and ultimately ending up relaxing out on one of decks or in front cosy fire–place. We have two gorgeous daughters who love joining us and staying at “Serenity”, always making sure they make good use of all kids’ amenities the property has got to offer. We both work in corporate environment. We enjoy travelling and spending good quality time with family and friends.
Why Marios Arletos chose Daylesford
We love visiting Daylesford area and staying at our house. We named it Serenity not by chance. The house is located in a truly serene setting, away from hustle and bustle, surrounded by trees and visited by birds and Australian native bush animals - i.e. kangaroos. Quite often we would go out to bush walk to nearby picnic grounds and natural springs spot. Also we like going to nearby horse ranch to have a family horse ride or just feed friendly horses at the ranch. Loving the fact the house is so close to the town - 2 min drive, it provides us with convenience and ability to enjoy the gourmet wine and dine experience.
What makes this House unique
Close to town but feels like in the middle of bush. Very private and gorgeous setting. Couple of separate spacious living areas and outdoor decks makes it easy for all to find their space and enjoy. The fireplace adds to magic.

Fantastic & relaxing
An absolute beautiful place , very relaxing and very enjoyable. Everything you could ask for, a fantastic kitchen with everything in it, the only negative would be not enough fire wood for the open fire on the chilly nights. Our two dogs enjoyed the open space to just run!
Overall very nice place.
Clean, inviting and spacious.
We were very impressed when we pulled up and even more impressed when we opened the front door. We wanted for nothing. 7 people had more than enough room. Air con and wood fire made our stay very cosy. Beds very comfortable. House is very roomy in a quiet neighborhood. Thanks to the hosts for terrific stay
Bush setting but all the luxury
This was our second stay at this property and it didn't let us down! Having previously stayed in winter with the heating and fireplace cranked up, this time our requirements were different as we arrived at the property in 35-40 degree weather. The property managed beautifully with air con at either end. And over night, 3'out of 4 nights temperatures dropped enough that the ac went off and the quilt went on!
Beautifully presented property, everything is in great condition.
The property is at the end of the road and the walking tracks that follow are fabulous. We saw kangaroos daily hopping by in the mornings, lots of bird life and an echidna out front.
Thank you for a beautiful stay!
Brilliant house...loved it!!
Wow! What a house...we've stay at a few holiday homes and this is the best by far! Space for everyone, beautiful surroundings and peaceful. Everything was neat and tidy and we had everything available for us. Great communications with the owner...was always available. Having the second lounge room was great for the kids...we took the playstation...set it up for the evening and we didn't see them until bedtime which gave my wife and me some alone time :-)
Highly recommend! Thanks for everything...will be back!!
Loved our stay at Serenity
Had a great 4 nights here over New Year. 2 living areas was a huge bonus, it is a neat and tidy property. Fantastic location, close to everything we needed. Decks overlooking the bush were well utilised, and we had a family of kangaroos visit us daily. Would definitely stay here again.Thanks Marios for sharing your property with us.
Great family holiday house
Great family location.
Easy 20 min walk to town.
Bush walks close by to town lake and creeks.
Bird sounds right outside lovely as very quiet street.
Lovely house great kitchen with open dining and big table
Very comfortable beds with lots of clean linen
Needs more than one bathroom/toilet for a large house with this many bedrooms
Needs more toilet paper, laundry soap, tea towels
Stove needs replacing to rise to the same standard as the rest of the house
Wooden blinds are heavy and cords long and dangerous for young children to be around. These are bound to break soon.
Thank you for your review. I appreciate your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed the house and its surroundings, those are the main attributes of our property. Honestly, I am a bit surprised to receive relatively poor rating as based on our interactions I thought you were truly satisfied with your stay. We assume the reasons for lower ratings were due to listed negatives and we are fine with that. The toiletries and supplies are complimentary and we provide appropriate quantity based on usage from previous stays, however we do acknowledge some guests may have greater needs. We are a holiday house and supplies are not replenished throughout the stay as you would expect from a hotel service. On the other hand I trust you enjoyed the extra linen provided and hope it added to comfort of your stay.
Again thank you for visiting us.
