Super-vibey cottage in blissful Taradale. This used to be a writer's residence; a secluded and serene haven. Very well equiped with kitchen gear and wood burning stoves. Access Castlemaine (10 mins drive away), cideries and wineries, local fairs and farmers markets, walks, swimming holes, and some secret local knowledge.

Just an hour and a quarter from Melbourne.

Cute cottage with everything you need - it's pretty rustic so not for everyone, but for atmosphere, views, country quiet and value for $$ we really enjoyed our stay.

This place is a true gem- warm, cosy, a perfect country retreat. I had high hopes and all my expectations were exceeded. We can't wait to return.

This is a great little cottage for a short getaway. We had a very cosy two night stay here, and enjoyed everything the place had to offer - beautiful bird life, fresh mornings, incredible bushwalks and best of all, a very toasty fire at the end of the day. Lots of character, lots of fun. Thanks for hosting us, Paul!

We spent four nights at Paul's cottage because we were visiting some friends in the area and it was great : blooming wattles and kangaroos everywhere, awesome skies at night, Victorian countryside at its best. We loved having the fire on to keep us warm during the very cold Victorian nights and the sounds of frogs and kookaburras in our ears during the day. Sadly, we didn't get the chance to meet Paul personally but communication via airbnb/texts was perfect. And last but not least - great little pizza/wine place in Taradale ! All in all, we'd definitely recommend you Paul's place. Thanks Paul !

Paul's place was a perfect rustic writers retreat. What a special place - It's a true original. Wood fire, fresh coffee and just the right amount of distraction with the projector at nighttime. Thanks again!
