We had a magical getaway at this house among the ferns... The place was bright and modern, cozy and gorgeous. It had all we needed to have a fabulous weekend get away with friends. Firewood was a plenty to make for warm winters nights. The added complimentary food and beverages were appreciated also. Only a 1 hour drive from Melbourne but felt like we were well and truly in the woods. To future guests, be ready for the driveway. It is very steep as expected for the area. Well worth it to be in such a gorgeous location on the side of a hill. We had no trouble picking up the keys from Olinda town at a booking office and finding our way to the house. We never met or had communications with Jeff but had communications from Peta and they were helpful. Overall a great place for a group experience in the gorgeous Dandenong Ranges. Thank you

Within walking distance to Olinda yet were smack in the woods with the sounds of only the forest and its wildlife. Our experience was amazing, such a beautiful and comfortable home. Whether staying in to relax and soak in the forest, bush walking or tour launching pad for the Dandenong Ranges or the Yarra Valley (or both), we can highly recommend. The home is very clean, visiting in the winter so warm, the bedding and heating options. Our favourite was the views surrounded by forest and the log fire! Thanks Jeff foe allowing us to stay (and Peta for looking after us), we hope to stay again

Jeff and Peta were highly communicative and very accommodating hosts. The place is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Overall, a great deal of effort has been put into ensuring a unique experience in a serene location with lovely views of a sunset and city at night. Would love to consider amother stay in the future :)

Thank you for an enjoyable escape to Olinda. The house is very well located a short stroll to Olinda village and outlook across rainforest and to the city is excellent. Accommodation layout is very good, we enjoyed relaxing about the upstairs living area, balcony and garden. Beds are comfortable and afforded a good nights sleep.

After 24 years offering accommodation in the Dandenong Ranges just an hour from Melbourne, we are now offering a beautiful little group of cottages for Air BNB guests.
We live in The Dandenongs, have lived in Fiji and PNG before moving to Melbourne 30 years ago.
We have a large family, 2 cats and 2 dogs to keep us in hand! They will not annoy you as your cottage is on a different property.
