The house is wonderful. It is warm, vibrant and easy to navigate with clear instructions from the landlord. The whole process was very easy with Simon & Allison.

Simon and Alison provided everything we needed for a perfect stay. The beautifully restored cottage was everything we imagined .... Cosy wood fire, comfy beds and loads of information about the area.

This was such a wonderful place to stay, I only wish we could've stayed longer. I think my friend and I walked around the house for about ten minutes upon entering, taking in all the beautiful features of the home and admiring the gorgeous furnishings. Everything was immaculate and the beds were so comfortable and cosy with electric blankets. We arrived so late due to work commitments and then a ghost tour we had already booked at the old gaol, but Simon was so understanding and then we didn't feel as stressed. I really hope to stay again soon, I couldn't have asked for lovelier place to stay. Thank you so much Simon.

Lovely stay, welcoming hosts and charming house. Little out of central town but warm, quiet and spacious

We had a lovely stay with our teenage daughter and my elderly Mum. The house was comfortable, attractive and very well equipped for cooking. We kept nice and warm in Castlemaine's chilly winter weather thanks to the various heaters and the cosy wood stove. There is a scenic walk into the town along the creek and through the bush that takes about 25 minutes, which we enjoyed. Simon and Alison were great hosts, very helpful and easygoing and they told us the story of the house and the old man that used to live there. There were some very nice touches like saying that if you started a book on the shelves, and didn't finish it you could take it with you. It's really nice to see that there are still real hosts like this on Air Bnb where unfortunately some properties are managed purely to make money by people who manage many properties and don't care about being hospitable.

Simon is a very friendly, helpful and responsive host. "Finsbury" is a cosy, atmospheric Art Deco space to stay in with the modern conveniences at your fingertips. We loved stoking the fire, and chose to stay in on our one night stay rather than go out because of the homely space. My friends and I highly recommend staying at Finsbury for a relaxing stay in Castlemaine in a very tastefully revonated house.

Finsbury is the perfect weekend getaway. It's spotlessly clean, well appointed and a very short drive into the town centre and the Mill. We loved the fireplace. Great value and communication from hosts Simon and Alison
