Want to get away from it all? Ideally located between Daylesford and Ballarat (35mins to each) our one bedroom bungalow is sure to delight!
Cosy wood log fire. All bedding and towels supplied.
Languages: Dutch, English & German.
Our bungalow was actually lived in by the property's previous owners for two years while they built our home on site.
Attached to our garage it was left unused for many years until we bought the property and started renovating it back as a place for our friends and family to stay.
The bungalow is about 20m away from the main house so you will have total privacy, apart from the occasional kangaroo visitor! A small path leads down to our back door should you need anything!
The bungalow price includes use of all linens and towels etc.
Tea and plunger coffee is provided, plus a new coffee pod machine (pods supplied). The kitchen includes a small fridge, microwave, and twin electric hot plate. Note: there is no oven.
New hot water system, TV & DVD player, however no access to commercial TV. A small selection of DVDs are provided.
Portable BBQ available upon request.
If there is anything else we have missed please just knock on our door. We are happy to help you out.
Interaction with guests
We are a pretty active family of four, with two fat cats and a puppy (not allowed in bungalow), Kevin the rooster and Kevin's harem of hens. Our ten acres of bushland keeps us very busy and we will do our best to ensure you have a relaxing stay.
No bookings accepted during peak fire risk periods.
Other things to note
The Bungalow is semi-carpeted (bedroom) with new laminate flooring in the main living area. We recommend visitors bring slippers for inside.
Our lovely log fire will keep you snug inside on a winters day (all wood provided). During the warmer season we attach renshade eco sun filters to the windows to keep out the harsh heat.
We are an environmentally responsible family and provide visitors with Bathroom products suitable for our Eco-septic (including Who Gives a Crap toilet paper who donate 50% of their profits to building suitable toilets in third world countries).
The property is located very much in the bush on a good dirt road. The dirt portion of your drive is only 2km with all other roads sealed.
Please drive carefully as there is a LOT of wildlife in the area.
Respect the wildlife. Please do not feed or try and touch our kangaroo visitors.
No smoking inside and naturally be careful with any butts outside.
Illegal drugs or drunken behaviour will not be tolerated.
Strictly NO PETS.
Please treat our bungalow as you would your own home.
Please be careful with muddy shoes inside.
Be water wise. We are on tank water.
We have an Eco septic system on site. No harsh chemicals can be washed or flushed down.
Let us know if there is something we can do better and enjoy your stay!
And last but most importantly... Relax!
I love living in the bush! After five years living in the Netherlands with my husband we made the decision to move back to Australia and couldn't be happier.
I work in museums and enjoy the history and heritage Ballarat and the Central Goldfields has to offer.
