  • Emily has created such a beautiful space to relax and unwind in. Every detail is carefully thought of and perfectly executed. Cannot recommend this cozy little escape enough!

    Troy2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Alkira was exactly what we needed to reconnect. Emily thought of every little detail to the smartly matched decor to breakfast in the morning. I would also highly recommend ordering a food hamper as well since it just added to the charm of the yurt. Will definitely stay here again if we’re ever in Australia again, and have already told all my friends and family about it! Thanks Emily!

    Stefani2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • A gem of a place— it’s like arriving to your dream hut. Consider just staying in for the whole day; Emily has prepared everything for you to cozy in this homey, fuzzy-warm of a nest. Can’t ever recommend this enough. ✨✨

    Aldo2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had the best stay in Emily’s Yurt, the design was gorgeous and the surroundings are so serene! It was so lovely strolling around the farm and meeting all of the friendly animals 😊 would highly recommend booking this accommodation! Thanks for having us, Tam & Steve

    Tamara2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I had a fantastic experience at Alkira. Far beyond anything I had imagined. The location is superb and the Yurt has been constructed with some much consideration

    Rajesh2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • What can I say? Emily’s yurt was wonderful! The property is picturesque and the yurt itself was a dream. Every aspect of it was beautiful - the little bits and pieces inside made it feel cozy and comfortable. The bathroom was lovely and we didn’t mind having to walk down a few stairs to get to it! We cooked dinner at night with the little bbq provided and had a lovely fire in the fire pit! We were greeted by a little horsey, a beautiful dog and a few geese when we arrived and they were all friendly and adorable! We loved staying here and would love to again, thank you Emily for creating such a special experience :)

    Hannah2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and stylish accommodation only 1 hour away from Melbourne CBD. Perfect place of you want to have a short escape and relaxing time! You would not regret it staying here!

    Nadya2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • I booked Emily's place for my parents after having a wonderful stay there myself last year. Here is their review: Our children surprised us with a night at Alkira to relax after our son’s wedding. We could not have been in a better location. The yurt is unique, cute and very comfortable. The outside kitchen facilities enabled us to prepare a delicious bbq dinner and breakfast. The views are beautiful and facilities excellent. Well done Emily on providing such a perfect escape!

  • Delightful place in the middle of a beautiful and very green area. The birds came to visit at the bird feeder every morning. Shellie was a lovely host, and provided a basket of fresh and tasty breakfast materials on the first day. With a comfortable bed, fun spa, warm heater, double-shower, handy little kitchen, it had everything we needed for a marvellous holiday.

    Chris2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Chudleigh Park is a beautiful haven that really allows your brain to reset. Shellie is a thoughtful and friendly host but will give you your privacy. The views are lovely and location is very close to a popular hiking trail and village.

    Allison2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Shellie was an amazing host! The room is lovely with plenty of space for a romantic couples getaway. The breakfast basket was a lovely touch with some really amazing goodies! Definitely worth staying here!

    Katriana2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • It was lovely to stay is such a beautiful cottage with a fabulous host to look out for us! The birds were stunning and we will definitely be back if we are ever in the area again 💕 Sheridan and Andrew

    Sheridan2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The location is beautiful and we were provided with so much great food for our stay. The local birds kept us company which was very cool.

    Cody2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely location and gorgeous cottages! Overlooking secluded woods you share the beautiful grounds with kookaburras, cockatoos and birds of many colours. Just 2 mins walk to the gorgeous village of Sassafras, yet you feel a million miles from civilisation. This was our second stay and we will be back!

    Rob2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I had an amazing time away here. The breakfast hamper was full of delicious food and fresh juice and milk. Everything in the hamper had been locally sourced. We enjoyed feeding the rosella’s and parrots by our back door. The property is super simple to find and is just off the main drag. If we were back in the area we would come back before looking elsewhere.

    Rowan2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and clean cottage. Great amenitites and thoughtful touches, especially with the amazing breakfast!

  • What an amazing place! Great location, beautiful landscaping and a great host. Thank you

    Nat2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Billabong falls was the perfect, peaceful enviroment to spend my wedding morning and start my new life with my Husband. Sarah went above and beyond... bread baking on arrival, asking us what milk we drink, chocolates, wine, fruit... and lets not forget that waterfall! Billabong falls will forever hold such beautiful memories to us and we're already making excuses to come again.

    Jazmine2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • This amazing home is located in the centre of a forest, with spectacular views, unique amenities and immaculate styling. Sarah really is a super host, who went above and beyond to make our stay incredible. This has been the best Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in (both in Aus and even internationally). Sarah is incredibly thoughtful, hospitable and quick to reply. You won’t find another home like it.

    Erin2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Even though the photos for this place are incredible, they still don’t do any justice to just how magical, majestic and serene this property truly was. From the moment we arrived, we were captured by the beautiful calm it provided and had the best time relaxing and switching off from the world for a while. We had the best sleep in ages in the incredibly comfortable beds and we can’t wait to return in the winter to make use of the fireplace. Unexpected touches of fresh fruit and local tips on our personal interests were fantastic and even the unseasonal rain couldn’t stop us from swimming in the pool!

    Nella2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at billabong falls, as so many have said before me from the moment you walk in you feel at home with music playing and the smell of freshly baked bread in the air it was a gorgeous welcome and my friend couldn't wait to have a beautiful hot piece of bread with melted butter! I loved the fact that on a warm night you can just leave the fly wire doors in the bedrooms open and let the cool air in while hearing the sound of the waterfall just outside! The host was always quick to reply and did everything she could to solve any issues. I highly recommend a stay here, you will enjoy every part of staying in this beautiful house!

    Rebecca2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Billabong Falls is an enchanting space, with the most hospitable of hosts. Thank you for the charming breakfast food, the music, the thoughtfulness. I loved the opportunity to be surrounded by nature without having to leave the property, and to feel like every space provided a new and different experience. From the large glass windows opening up onto the mountain ash, to the balconies giving audience to birdsong, the soothing natural pool and my favourite of all the grounding outdoor shower... Finally the sustainable design spoke of a respect for nature that made my heart happy. We loved out stay here.

    Tina2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A little gem in nature. For family with kids, bring a binocular for bird watching :)

    Han2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully located, nice and clean with lots of small touches that really make it memorable. As others have said, the smell of fresh bread greeted us when we arrived and truly set the pace of what we could expect for the rest of our stay. Beautiful garden and plenty of options for activities depending on the weather. We were there during the week and as the host admits, there are cars coming and going from the driveway but we noticed that once the office workers realised we were up and about, the blinds got pulled down and we felt like it was quite private, so no complaints about that as I feel the experience was true to what the host said. Sarah was very responsive to all questions etc and was very accommodating. 100% recommend staying here and will highly likely be staying here again myself.

  • Lovely relaxing space in the heart of the Dandenong's. Very enjoyable.

    Ash2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing time here! We loved the view from the spa bath and all the small touches added throughout the place. Would definitely recommend staying here if you are looking for a private get away.

    Justyna2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Coorabell Retreat is a fantastic forest getaway and the perfect place to unplug and refresh. This converted barn looks rustic from the outside but provides all modern creature comforts on the inside. William and Penny thoughtfully provided wine and chocolates and had music playing on our arrival which was a lovely touch. The breakfast food provided was also welcomed and bed supremely comfortable. The extra touch came from us seeing three inquisitive Rosellas hanging around the front of the building and then realising there was bird food in the kitchen, giving us an opportunity to feed and enjoy their company even more! Comfortable in summer with airconditioning in the property, it would also be nice in winter with the fireplace roaring in the living area. The property is so secluded and well hidden (but still easy to find) that we didn't even need to blinds at night to have the real "night in the forest" feel. Hopefully will be back again!

    Mark2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place to stay. We didn’t have one bad thing to say it was just so nice and relaxing plus romantic. We will be back for sure

  • I only spent 1 night at Poppy's but I wished it had been longer. Audrey has set up such a wonderful space for her guests - a cosy, well equipped caravan, a massive deck, a gorgeous hot tub area and a bathroom that ticks all of the boxes. Lots of different seating options, a generous supply of towels and blankets, and a very thoughtful touch of sparkling wine and chocolates on arrival. Communication with Audrey was easy and prompt, and the location is great. I was blessed with amazing weather whilst I was there and was able to utilize all spaces. Thanks for a perfect little getaway Audrey!

    Christine2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Audrey's place is a MUST DO when heading to Mt Dandenong. It was the perfect location and only a short walk into the Olinda township and cuckoo restaurant too. Audrey made personal little touches that made this stay the most memorable stay I have ever had. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone.

  • My girlfriend and I had a great stay at Poppy’s Caravan. There were some lovely touches on arrival for my girlfriend’s birthday. The weather was really good so we were able to make use of the day bed in the sun and relax. The spa was perfect later on. Would definitely recommend to anyone who’s looking for a relaxing weekend away. Thanks!

    Shaun2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Isaak2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cute place to stay. Really welcoming as you arrive and set up perfectly for a nice a relaxing night. Walking distance to some shops and a blueberry farm down the rd if you want to hand pick yourself some during the summer months. Overall a great experience.

    Miranda2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect little spot in a beautiful place for a couple to have a get away! Audrey made the place very homey and had some lovely finishing touches like the bottle of wine and chocolates. Unfortunately for us it rained all weekend but would be amazing when the sun is shining 😊

  • The second we walked through the front door of Troy’s place we felt really comfortable. This place has a really nice vibe and is full of character. The space is uniquely decorated and the plants throughout add that little extra touch. The backyard and patio area are the perfect space to fire up the BBQ and enjoy the afternoon. We loved our short stay here and would definitely stay again.

    Mel2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing home stay surrounded by nature. The garden is breathtaking, with native plants and introduced species harmoniously arranged. Within the house is everything needed for a pleasant, invigorating experience. Very stylish decor. There are dozens of amenities installed, all thoughtfully included. Clean and cosy, I highly recommend visiting. Be aware the land is steep, with many steps, though this actually added to it's uniqueness. Five stars.

  • Beautiful house in a magical setting. Lovely, relaxing outdoor area with a brilliant outlook.

    Shiry2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Host response fast, stay suitable for those who like to surround with a lot of trees and plants, feel comfortable and warm in the morning when sunshine come in but if got big luggage bag need to carry up few steps of staircase, others than this, everything’s GOOD .

  • A lovely little cabin in a great location. The only downside for us was no shower in the cabin itself, but there is a shower located in the main house that is available to guests if you’re comfortable with this. Danielle and Gem were very accommodating by helping us check in early so we could get to a wedding in the area, and this was very much appreciated. There are plenty of little touches in the cabin which make it cozy and pleasant. Thank you, Danielle!

Especially, the opportunity to feed some Kookaburras and Australian king parrots was awesome. it was first experience for my 6 months old baby to see those beautiful birds those close and i am sure he loved each bit of those moments. It was a peaceful and relaxing time for my family. Being a host, John was fantastic..it was my wife's birthday and she loved the scented Candle John gifted her.. I would highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to spend some time with real nature..

  • 23/02/20 - A short but memorable stay at Windmill Barn, we were greeted by the warm decor, pretty cushions and a family of much loved toy bears. The rustic cottage offers a glimpse back into yesteryear with a collection of vintage exhibits, both educating and interesting. Pretty creative touches adorn outdoor areas. The barn was clean, well presented with comfortable beds, soft towels, great spa and the amazing basket of treats was simply delightful! Hosts, Victor and Lauretta, were friendly and easy to communicate with. A sweet holiday retreat!

    Trudy2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • First and for most John was an amazing host, friendly but yet professional. I guess he would read all your needs and find a solution to make you even more welcomed (always with a smile) . We've stayed at Welcome to Masquerade suit which was really clean and organized, decorated with a lots of style. The room had a really pleasant smell and atmosphere. We really enjoyed the lovely breakfest (fresh local milk, lovely butter, jam, etc.) on the dock between the tall ferns and the sound of birds. The private spa bath was real treat on top of everything - Clean, Cozy and so relaxing! The bus it easily accessible from John's house and it made our exploration pain free and truly enjoyable ( do not hesitate to take the buss! it drives through all attractions and must see places). Even, UBER deliveries are not a problem.. we got our dinner in bed in less than 15 min. I truly recommend Kalorama and John's place for your next trip whether that is your chill weekend away, cheeky birthday or spa treat. IT IS A REAL BLAST ! I can't wait to go back!!

    Julijana2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic, relaxing and serene. Nestled in the Dandenong mountains with only the noise of birds chirping. The perfect place to unwind and relax. Feed the kookaburras and rosellas from your balcony. John was extremely friendly & accommodating. Will be back again!

    Emi2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at the masquerade was truly magical. The photos don't do it justice. The room was warm & inviting and not to mention the view. The deck is where we spent most of our time. The spa on deck was the cherry on top! Beautiful view & a light mist of rain whilst enjoying the spa was just perfect! Morning coffee was enjoyed in the sunshine on the deck whilst feeding the birds with bird seed so kindly provided by the host John. Such a great touch. Would definelty recommend to anyone looking to enjoy a peaceful night away amongst the trees. John has great hospitality, we would stay again.

    Kelly2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Wow!!! What a magical spot!! Rooms are romantic and the perfect place to get away from it all. All rooms have floor to ceiling windows looking out to endless rainforest. Such a peaceful place with no noise but the local birds. We've stayed here twice now and John is a wonderful host and will help you in any way. Thanks again for having us at your very special sanctuary...see you again soon x

  • Beautiful view and holiday experience. You feel like you're in the tree tops with the birds - all sorts of beautiful varieties - wrens, parrots, cockatoos... Such a beautiful home; super stylish, clean, warm & cosy with central ducted heating, a really fantastic filtered water machine that allows you hot & cold filtered water on tap. Cafes and walks nearby. It's self-contained so bring your favourite foods if you prefer to hibernate :). (And if you're a smoothie junkie, bring your Ninja). The driveway is steep so just be prepared :). Just a couple of hours after we arrived we said 'Let's stay here again' and we booked our 2nd trip whilst sitting on the deck, sipping tea, taking in the stunning view of the Dandenongs. Highly recommend - 5 Stars *****

  • Very nice place hidden away in the woods. Make sure you have Google maps or Waze. Ensure your car has good traction to climb the steep entrance; Honda Accord easily got up to the top, Honda Odyssey had to stay in the driveway (but inside the gates). Great spacious rooms in an octagonal place. Only one bathroom and 2 WCs so large groups need to plan a bit. Melina is a very nice, responsive, and helpful host.

  • AMAZING place! The flat is spacious, clean, and cosy. We had such a relaxing weekend here. The views are stunning and it is so quiet.The hot tub was the best part and it is so much bigger than it looks in the photos. Penny was a lovely and considerate host and we would definitely return.

    Judy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Kate and Chris are amazing hosts! Super friendly and helpful. Kate welcomed us warmly and showed us around the beautiful place which exceeded our expections! So many details, a beautiful deck with a super warm hottub to spend the evening, a very comfy bed and an awesome living room are. Highly recommended!! What a beautiful hidden gem in the region of Mount Dandenong!

    Nathalie2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Fifty shades is brilliant very stylish design. Private hot tub, they had all the kitchen appliances you'd need. the amenities were great, very comfortable bed, soft towels and friendly birds! 10/10

    Max2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • This space was definitely a top 3 for me. It was unique and extremely stylish, I couldn’t take my eyes off the art pieces! The hot tub was the perfect addition to this already lovely home. And for the cherry on top, waking up to the sound of gorgeous birds and being able to provide food for them started each morning off with a warm heart. Kate’s hospitality was over the top, from providing milk and cookies, to a full house walk through, even to helping me with my oversized luggage to the bus stop. The only complications that may arise is being a little ways out from the city, and the bugs that come with the location. But with one bus (the stop is literally right outside) and one train you’ll be there in no time! And as for the creepy crawlies , there is some raid provided under the cabinet, as well as off! Spray for the mosquitoes (you will be fine). I had a phenomenal time and will most definitely be staying here again if I get the chance!!!

    Bethany2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

  • Thank you Mary for a wonderfully peaceful place to stay. The space was exactly what we needed for a weekend away from the busy city. The space was clean, cosy and what a treat to wake up to ponies in the paddock next to us! Check in was easy and it was lovely to meet you on arrival. We will be back for another cosy weekend away.

    Quaint and cosy bungalow - separate entry from main house - situated in tranquil bush setting. The bungalow is self contained with bathroom, kitchenette and split air with a super comfy queen bed. While there is no cooking facilities in the bungalow you are welcome to use the main kitchen. Likewise, take in the glorious sunsets from the main deck, or prepare a barbecue.
    Walk up the driveway and across the road is Sherbrooke forest where wallabies and lyrebirds abound. There is a lovely trail that takes you to Sherbrooke falls. You will also be ideally close to all the Dandenongs has to offer - Belgrave is minutes in one direction and the quaint townships of Sassafrass and Olinda in the other. Bushwalking trails are dotted throughout the Dandenongs, as are many other attractions such as the Rhodedendron Gardens, Skyhigh, Puffing Billy (of course!) I can point you in the right direction for good eateries and other local venues. Lots of birds come to visit - king parrots, rainbow lorikeets, rosellas, kookaburras and currawongs. You can feed some by hand!
    You are at the gateway to the Dandenongs. 5 minutes drive up the road is Sassafrass, a beautiful township, as is Olinda - 10 minutes drive from me. The drive around the Dandenongs offers spectacular scenery enhanced by the seasons. There is lots to see and do.
  • Robin’s place was lovely. Small and cosy but well designed for a stay by myself. Great location to go on bush walks and a nice view from the bedroom over looking bush land and the city in the distance. Bed was very comfortable. Had a very good night sleep.

    Andrew - Mary Ann2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay, a very cute and cosy room with a beautiful view of trees. Robin was a lovely host and very easy to communicate with.

    Bridie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Robin is an awesome host, and her hospitality is second to none. The Bungalow is a cosy little hideaway that I really love to come back to.

    Adam2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Best thing about this beautiful cabin is the view out the window over the rainforest - STUNNING! Especially with the beautiful mist we enjoyed. All super comfortable and really amazing value for the area. Small note that the bathroom wall/door doesn't go completely to the roof, which makes it suited to singles or couples/friends who are comfortable with each other :) We'd definitely stay again!

    Hannah2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy little bungalow right in the bush, it was so lovely and comfortable. It's attached to the main house but it's still private. It's very much for couple though as it's very intermittent. Super close to Belgrave and Upwey shops. Will be staying longer next time for sure.

    Karl2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • What a serene and beautiful spot! A real forest hideaway with semi-tame kookaburras and parrots in abundance. The little bungalow has a sink and small fridge; no cooking facilities but Robin allowed us full use of her kitchen and beautiful deck for our Christmas lunch and was super-friendly and helpful throughout. An idyllic spot; we hope to be back!

    Julie2019-12-26T00:00:00Z

    Julia2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place was outstanding! Lovely extra touches and a beautiful setting. Getting to chat away to the local parrots on the balcony and the double spa was perfect after hiking. Would highly recommend and go back in a heartbeat!

    Leigh2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Shellie and John are amazing hosts who went above and beyond to make this weekend a memorable one. The cabin was immaculate and the breakfast basket along with the specially arranged platter was enough to feed a small army. Shellie went out of her way to ensure our special requests were met. We were over the moon with everything and we look forward to visiting again soon. Thanks for all your help!

    Jack2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We spent our first night in Australia here and it was amazing. The property was beautiful and the room was clean and equipped with everything we needed and more. Shellie greeted us with a well stocked basket of food, drinks and treats which was a very thoughtful touch. We loved watching the colorful birds and taking morning walks through the forest. Perfect for anyone that wants to escape the busy city. We'd love to stay here again and will recommend it to family and friends

    Justin2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Shellie's a wonderful host, very thoughtful and hospitable. Our room has very cosy and warm, with fresh local produce to keep us well fed and happy. Directions and parking was easy and we even had birds posing for us in the mornings. Will definitely be back again!

    Escape to a charming, wood-paneled cottage surrounded by greenery and flowers. Listen to birds singing outside, or sit at the piano and make music of your own. Cook breakfast in the country kitchen with fresh eggs from the resident chickens.
    The space is part of a large Cape Cod style two story home. It is connected at the rear of our house but has a separate entrance and is private. The interior of the cottage is fully self contained and is eclectic in style. We are on 3/4 acre and have an English style garden with Rhododendrons, Camellias as well as ferns, fruit trees and a vegetable garden.
    The house is in Olinda—a short, windy drive from the base of Mt Dandenong through lush green rainforest and huge mountain ash trees. It's a popular tourist destination, widely known for its amazing gardens, walking tracks, and quaint shopping strip.
  • This is such a lovely place to stay for a few nights. It is right next to the Botanic Gardens, and an easy walking distance from the shops. Victoria and Robbie had the perfect mixture of being attentive hosts, whilst also providing plenty of privacy. We arrived to some bread, fresh eggs and milk in the fridge, and a beautiful greyhound greeting us. Cannot wait to come back in six months - it was such a wonderful weekend away.

    Laura2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic cottage, friendly and helpful host. Close to township.

    Meghan2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • I loved my few days here so much I wanted to move in. It’s a perfect base for exploring the area or, like me, for switching off and relaxing after a busy year. It’s warm and inviting, spacious, and the lovely little touches and outlook to the garden make it feel like a home away from home.

    Kylie2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Victoria was a caring & thoughtful host. We had a wonderful stay in this gorgeous air bnb. It was comfy, clean & relaxing with beautiful surrounds. I hope to return.

    Cath2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at the cottage. Although we sadly didn’t get to meet Victoria in person, as she was away, she was easily contactable and kindly checked in with us a number of times to make sure all was ok. Her husband (and the animals!) made us feel most welcome. The cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed. Perfect location - a short stroll from shops, pubs and restaurants, we came by public transport from Melbourne and didn’t think about needing a car once. Would love to stay again sometime. Thanks Victoria!

    Laura2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Victoria’s place in Olinda. We felt at home immediately. We absolutely loved the welcome chocolate, bread and fresh eggs. The board games were also great - we had some competitive games of scrabble. Check in and check out was very easy and Victoria was a great host. I hope to be back again soon.

    Our bungalow is situated at the foot of the Dandenong Ranges and is only 15 minutes from the Yarra Valley. Although the bungalow is small, it is perfect for business travellers or a couple to spend a few nights or more while exploring these great Victorian tourist spots. With a private deck to enjoy breakfast or a picnic lunch or dinner in the warmer weather, the size of the room isn’t as important.
    Our bungalow has a private entrance via the driveway, an al fresco deck area with table, chairs, a large umbrella, a refrigerator and microwave. This space is for the exclusive use of our guests. The bungalow has a lovely big window with shutters which looks out onto the deck. You have a chest of drawers, the TV is on a movable bracket on the wall, there is a space behind the door to hang your clothes and you have everything to make a light breakfast, a picnic lunch or dinner (cutlery, plates, glasses, toaster, kettle, coffee plunger). These are on the deck in Summer and you’ll find some extra plates inside one of the drawers in the room. Tea and coffee is also provided. Please note: Bread, spreads and milk may be provided ON REQUEST for the first night ONLY. After that I leave guests to make their own arrangements for breakfast. There is a very warm doona and throw rugs for the colder weather as well as a light cotton bedspread for hot nights.
    Close proximity to Mt Dandenong, for great walks and sightseeing, and the Yarra Valley, for a tour of one the many amazing wineries. There is plenty to do and enjoy locally. We are close to shops, a family owned bakery / cafe (a 10 minute walk away on Mt Dandenong road, turn left when you walk up our road towards Mt Dandenong Rd) and public transport (train and buses). We are also only minutes away by car from several Wedding Reception venues, which makes it very easy for guests. We do have neighbours living in close proximity, so guests should be mindful not to make too much noise.
  • We felt very at home in Audrey's place. The bed was super cosy and comfortable. Would definitely stay again.

    A great rustic cabin with heaps of character and charm in a relaxed country setting. Close to the Dandenongs and Yarra valley. Ideal for a couple but does have a pull out sofa for extra person or two small children. Tea and Coffee provided. The owners have two dogs and a cat which are very friendly!

    Gary2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We were looking for a place to relax for the weekend and Hannah's self-contained cabin saw what we needed and then raised the stakes. Honestly, you could live there and want for nothing: fireplace to sit beside, forest walks in their garden, berry picking just down the road, it was an idyllic, luxurious place we were lucky enough to call home for the weekend. It'd be a privilege to come and stay again really soon!

    Gabriel2020-01-12T00:00:00Z

So many thoughtful touches such as cookies and coffee, fresh eggs, and lots of games, books, DVDs and music. Bed was very cosy. The cabin is situated directly next to the main house, so not secluded, but still felt private. There’s a large property to explore and Hannah’s two adorable dogs are happy to come along for the journey.

  • We spent two nights at the poplar lodge and it was just what we needed; the environment was very quiet and calm and relaxing and the lodge was comfy and cozy. Hannah was a great host, she was very accommodating of our requests and constantly made sure we had everything we needed.

    My place is close to Sky high restaurant and view of the Melbourne city. It is 5 minutes drive to Tatra Hut wedding reception. You’ll love my place because it is nestled in the Kalorama forest. In 10 minutes walk through the forest, enjoy the local picnic ground as well as a delightful view in a distance of Silvan reservoir. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers and business travellers. Continental breakfast supplied.
  • This is our favourite place to stay in the Dandenong ranges! We came back for a third time, it’s always an amazing experience. Super comfortable room with beautiful forest views. John is an incredible host we will definitely be back again

  • Not only is John’s place awesome & in a great location, but John himself is a wonderful host who takes pride in making his guests feel welcome. Loved our one night stay, wish we could’ve stayed longer.

  • John is a wonderrful person and his house is a gem. Beautiful view, very cozy decor and we were able to just relax and were allowed to check out a little later. Loved our stay! Would definitely come back. x

  • It's always a pleasure to visit John's place and experience the beautiful gardens with abundant wildlife. John provided us with some food for the birds so we had our lunch in John's meticulously kept gardens with the birds only an arms-length away. It was spectacular & very peaceful, which is why we continue to return every 6 months for a weekend getaway :)
