  • 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!

    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

  • 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

    Jessica2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Miki2019-12-19T00:00:00Z

    The Basin, VIC, Australia

    Quiet, private bungalow set in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges trees. Wake to the sounds of parrots, cockatoos and kookaburras in the bush. Our charming guest house includes bedroom, bathroom, breakfast amenities and outside courtyard. Within easy reach of bus and rail stops and the restaurants, cafes and bars of the mainstreet of Belgrave. Suitable for singles or couples. People from all backgrounds are welcome but please, no smoking and no pets. Please note that the driveway is quite steep.
    Surrounded by lush bushlands and slightly elevated to take in the gorgeous vistas and the very best of the Dandenong Ranges. Coronavirus I would like to assure my guests that I take the virus transmission very seriously. The bungalow is away from the house and I clean with a disinfectant. Particularly surfaces including door handles etc...even curtains. Since the bungalow is separated from the house and its self check in you’re unlikely to come into contact with masses of people here, it would just be public places that you may visit. Many times I hardly see my guests at all. Probably a very good place for social distancing or isolating!
    The Bakery Bungalow is just a couple of hundred meters from the beautiful Sherbrook Forest. There are many walks through the forest, the chance to see a lyrebird, wallabies or waterfall among the huge gum trees. The famous Puffing Billy Steam Train is close by (a 2 minute drive) in Belgrave and the 1000 steps walk in the Dandenong Ranges National Forest is about 2 kms away. You can also take a 5 minute walk through the forest to arrive in the car park of the McCawber Tavern, home of great meals, a wide variety of beers and excellent live music. Both Belgrave and Upwey main streets have a wide variety of bars, cafes and restaurants to enjoy.
  • Great little spot with view of the trees

    Danny2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

    Anna2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Small place, nice and clean with a wonderfully warm bed! Nice and simple and perfect for a wedding getaway in the area. It’s a bit hard to find at first (and to work out where to park) but otherwise easy once you’ve found somewhere. Close to sherbrooke falls which is really nice. Brian was friendly and flexible with check in times. Thanks!

  • This place is perfect for spending some time sorrounded by nature. The bungalow has everything needed, it's extremely cozy and the view is STUNNING! Big thanks to Brian, who was an amazing host and friendly. He even offered us to take us to the train station as we went there by walking (yes, the bungalow is 25 minutes uphill but nothing terrible). Enjoy!

    Fernanda2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

Please be aware that phone reception is limited. Our street is an unsealed road (gravel).
    The Sun Room Bungalow is situated behind the main house to give you privacy. The room is set up with a comfortable queen bed. There is a futon style sofa bed made up upon request. We now also offer a single trundle bed which can be set up upon request in addition to the queen and sofa bed. This will incur the additional guest fee when you book your nights. We only set up the futon when needed so if your booking for 2 people requires both beds made up, please let me know. There is an additional charge of $10 for the extra linens. Please DO NOT pull out and use the futon bed if you haven’t requested it and we have not set it up as a bed. If you do so, you will be charged a $50 laundry fee to clean the futon cover, cushions and blankets as these items require special laundering and are not mean to be slept on. Please be aware that the set up of the futon and/or trundle bed limits the space in the room and also means the room will be set up differently than in the photos to accommodate the additional beds. The room is carpeted, the bathroom is new and we have decorated it in a modern functional style. You'll have your own coffee and tea making facilities, bar fridge and microwave with provisions for breakfast provided - bakery items, cereal and fruit. There is a tv and dvd player (we have provided a few selected dvds for you) Please read the house rules to make sure our place is a good fit for your needs. Phone reception isn't great up here however we do provide WiFi. The signal is as good as we can get it, it is boosted from the main modem and may drop out. We have 2 dogs, they are both medium sized but as with any dog, they like to bark and are always interested in new people. They are fine once they meet you so please allow us to introduce you to them before you approach them. If you are uncomfortable with dogs please let me know and I will keep them in the main house as much as I can. We keep a chicken, ducks, budgies and we also have a cat and our latest additions - 2 bunnies! There is back yard access, we have a beautiful garden with flowers, wild birds who like to be hand fed and a paved area perfect for sitting out, enjoying a glass of wine from the Yarra Valley which is a 30 min drive away. A short walk to Tatra Receptions, we are in a great location for those attending a wedding and want to spend the night in the Dandenongs after the event. We are also a short drive to Sky High, Poets Lane Receptions, Lyre Bird Falls, Grants and many other Mount Dandenong wedding venues.

    The Dandenongs are a unique area in Melbourne. Up in the mountains we have an almost rainforest like climate. The property is about 1km walk (15mins) to the village of Mt Dandenong or 2km walk to Olinda. There are plenty of cafes, bakeries and 3 pubs serving craft beers within walking distance. There are also lots of hiking trails and nature walks. We have local artist William Ricketts' Reserve about 10mins walk away where you can stroll through an open air art gallery featuring his beautiful sculptures and carvings. You can feed the local Cockatoos at Grants Feeding grounds or walk through the Rhododendron Gardens in Olinda. There has recently been a brand new children’s playground built on the site of the old Olinda golf course - highly recommended!! The views are epic and the facilities are amazing. 30 mins away by car is the Yarra Valley, perfect for wine tasting, sampling local grown strawberries, craft beers and artisan cheeses. There are lots of markets at the weekends selling local produce, crafts and food. We are very close to many wedding reception venues and Tatra Receptions is literally a 5 min walk away.

The facilities are all you need, the room is tastefully decorated, the bed is super comfy, the bathroom modern and very clean(as was the rest of the place) Lots of information on surrounding areas in a folder thoughtfully provided by Lauren. A great place to stay.

    Clarence2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, great setting, and the hosting was like most airbnbs used to be - personal, gracious, sensitive to just the right amount of interaction, helpful and thoughtful. If coming by train I would make sure Darren is available to do the first shuttle from the station - it would be a serious uphill schlep with luggage and finding the way could be confusing the first time.

    Heidi2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Darren's place was a great little find. The room at the top of the stairs was stylishly equipped with lots of thoughtful touches including some tasteful antiques. There were scenic views from the windows which let in a gentle cooling breeze. The only drawback was the tricky parking on the road but this is typical of this area and Darren provided excellent instructions. Highly recommended.

  • The cottage is lovely and very comfortable. You are very close to Upwey but far enough away from the hustle & bustle. Azalea gave us great tips on what to see and do. At Azaleas recommendation we had dinner at Tin Pan Alley and it was fantastic. The welcome basket was amazing and a tour of the farm is a must. A great place to stay to enjoy all the Dandenongs have to offer.

    Kylie2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • We have just spent a completely idyllic week in the Harvest Homestead cottage. Azalea and her family were so kind and welcoming, and we had a tour of their farm and were encouraged to pick fresh vegetables from their beautiful gardens and collect eggs from the chickens - which we used for some amazing breakfasts. We also had our own privacy, though, with our own entrance and parking at the cottage so we could come and go as we pleased without worrying about disturbing everyone. The cottage itself is beautiful; it is clean, well equipped and has so many thoughtful touches like the jars of fresh cut flowers from the garden, gorgeous bed linen, organic coconut soap, and a welcome breakfast basket complete with homemade bread- still warm. The location also makes it an ideal bade for exploring the Dandenong region and close enough to get to Melbourne for a day trip. We would definitely recommend this place - thank you so much Azalea!

    Laura2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Harvest Homestead was a highlight of our trip to Australia. The property was perfect for our needs, clean and there were many thoughtful touches. We loved the homegrown cottage flowers and the breakfast provided by Azalea was delicious. The tour of the farm and animals and suggestions for places to visit were much appreciated.

    Jane & Gary2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay and super friendly hosts who invited us for a Christmas Eve party at some friend's house as soon as we arrived. The cottage is lovely decorated and the welcoming breakfast was delicious and very generous. The farm is an enchanting place. Azalea and her family are definitely super hosts.

    Rita2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended. The stay comes with a breakfast basket and an hour farm tour. The farm has alpacas, sheep, chickens and bunnies. Lots of fruits, vegetables and herbs as well. The hosts were wonderful and warm people. Last but not least, we got lucky and caught the annual shearing. Thanks for making our farm stay so memorable!

    Justin2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Azalea and family were easy going, and their urban farm and breakfast basket was awesome. We booked this primarily to be on the farm most of the time, as we come from an urban city environment, and we enjoyed the farm tour, and our children loved being in the farm, on the trampoline, playing with their kids. Would have been perfect if the pool was available.

    Josh2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Special highlights for our kids were the baby bunnies and collecting eggs from the chickens. Mum even got some hugs from the alpaca. All around a special and memorable experience.

    Carrie2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a most wonderful 3 night stay here on Harvest Homestead. Azalea provided a beautiful welcome basket filled with homemade bread and juice and pastries, and produce from the farm. We had them for breakfast and it was lovely. Our kids loved how cosy the home is and also loved running about and exploring the farm. They thoroughly enjoyed picking fresh herbs and feeding the animals on the farm. Azalea gave us an excellent farm tour. We had such a lovely time and would definitely return again if we visit Melbourne next time!

  • It was a perfect place with everything in it. Barry was so kind. I was so grateful for a perfect setting in the accommodation and the amazing kindness of driving us to the station. The accommodation was fantastic as much as I want to live someday and the surrounding environment was very good. If I go to Dandenong again, I will go again. And absolutely I want to recommend this place to my friends.

    John(Juyeng)2019-09-25T00:00:00Z

    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

    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

    Our place is close to Belgrave's family-friendly activities (Cameo cinemas Puffing Billy, the Dandenongs etc), nightlife (Sooki, the Bell, Oscars), public transport. Upwey's cafe's 15mins are walk. Our restaurants on offer are Indian, Thai, Chinese, Viet, and artisan burger and pizza. You’ll love my place because of the greenness, and the cosiness of a fire. Extra good for couples, solo adventurers, and furry friends (our cat is no longer).
    Expect to sleep soundly, unless the birds disturb. Kookaburras start early, currawongs follow, and rosellas and parrots incessant during the day.
    We're just off the Belgrave bikepath, which goes thru Ferntree Gully and links to the cycle network. And a short walk to the famous 1000steps Kokoda trail memorial. The Mt Dandenong Tourist Rd winds past, onto Sassafras and the hills tearooms.
  • For the price you couldn’t ask for more. Great hospitality

    Steven2019-05-14T00:00:00Z

  • Thank you so my Geoff, you made our time in Belgrave so brilliant, you went the extra mile at every turn. Your house is located in such a gorgeous spot and the house is so cozy and comfortable with the wood burning fire. Really enjoyed meeting lily the goat who was very happy with the gifted ferns.

    Manuel2019-05-06T00:00:00Z

  • Geoff's place is in a picturesque and convenient location, and very quiet. Geoff was very welcoming and made it a very easy and pleasant stay for us with our 4-month-old, making sure we had everything we needed and entertaining us with his humour. We appreciated Geoff's great communication even though we were booking at the last minute, and loved the peaceful green view out our window, and the added bonus of Lily the goat. This place is great value and we recommend it!

    Simon2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very welcoming hosts, especially the cat. The bed was very comfortable and a lovely big ensuite bathroom. Plenty of room for our things. It was great to have our own living/dining area as well. It was quiet inside the house so good for sleeping but still close to shops, eating places and public transport. It was good to have off street parking.

    Our villa has 4 generous bedrooms all with built-in-robes and en-suite bathroom, plus an additional guest room with two bunk beds. Situated a short stroll from Upwey township and Upwey Station, ideally for families' getaway or holiday. The undercover recreation area contains a spa pool, BBQ stove, 4 hanging chairs, a fireplace, and a pizza stove (but we rarely used it before, so don't have much idea about how to use it...). We also have a small basketball court in the backyard as well.
    All linen and towels are provided by local suppliers who also serve other graded hotels, and all used linen & towels will be replaced after each check-out - thus we charge a little more in the cleaning fee. In order to provide a better price for our guests, we have lowered the cleaning fee for groups less than 8 people - if your group is less than 8, please do not use those bunk beds in the guest room. If you don't want to share beds with others and do wish to use the bunk bed, please add the number of guests.
    Our neighbours are nice so please respect them by lower your voice after 10 PM.
  • Beautifully well decorated home stocked full of fun and games! definitely well worth for what it is and can assure you many fun memories are to be made here. Emma is super sweet and patient and answered all the questions that I had over our stay.

    Rose2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Emma is very lovely host. always quick response and happy to answer all the questions. The house is beautiful, exactly same as the picture, large open kitchen, living areas. the only thing u need is car, the house location is not public transport friendly, and need to drive up to supermarket. Overall, very good experience with Emma and her house.

    Lovely sunlit room with sliding door private access. Situated directly opposite Sherbrooke Forest where you will spy lyrebirds and wallabies. My place is located on the doorstep of the Dandenongs. Sassafras, Olinda and Mt Dandenong are minutes away in one direction, Belgrave the other. The room is very private and you will enjoy everything the house offers - sunset views from the deck, full use of the contemporary kitchen, lounge and dining areas. I can be as interactive or removed as you wish
    PLEASE NOTE: I have another Airbnb accommodation on the property - a separate bungalow to the house. There may be one or two other guests staying. Make yourself at home in the shared spaces of the house. The back patio deck looks down upon a tree filled valley and faces south west for some spectacular sunsets. The lounge has a smart tv and speakers - chill out to Netflix or Spotify. The kitchen comes well equipped with all modern appliances and kitchenware. Enjoy a long soak in the bath with candles and wine.
    The neighbourhood is peaceful, quiet and very private. You will be close to everything the Dandenongs has to offer - bush walks, scenic drives, the Rhododendron Gardens, native animals and birds and even good coffee!
  • We loved staying at Robin's place. The view is just beautiful, surrounded by trees with many bird species that come and visit the balcony. Robin is a very warm and relaxed host, we felt totally welcome. Also the place is just next to the national park, which has some nice walks. A perfect getaway.

    Kat2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • What a fantastic location and host!

    Adam2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great hospitality & recommendations, would deffo recommend staying here :) lots of nature around!

    Lehel2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • If you have the chance to stay with Robin, do so. Not only is the house beautiful and very well located, but Robin herself is the type of warm, smart, kind-hearted people you don't come across often. The cat, Ginger, is a diva and will pose for you to take pictures of him (if he's in the mood, you know how divas are). We only stayed for one night, but the bed was one of the comfiest I'd ever slept in. The house is clean and incredibly well decorated, it's at walking distance of the Sherbrooke Falls and of the 1000 steps if you're willing to walk a bit further. All in all, a great decision.

    Samantha2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Enjoyable night away with a fabulous view. Loved Robin home, both stylish and comfy. It was like being in the bush with all the creature comforts. Robin was great, friendly and very accommodating. Thanks Robin

    Wendy2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Robin shares her lovely home that is set amongst the towering gum trees, and is clean, comfortable and welcoming. Robin will make every effort to ensure that you stay is unpressured and comfortable.

  • The landlord was a Thai couple, very kind and enthusiastic. Before we arrived at their home, we sent a message asking where we were and if we needed help. When we arrived at their home, they saw us in the door and held their hands. Take some things, come here to help immediately, and tell us if you need anything, you can tell them, great landlord, will go again next time!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at the Art House! The place was immaculate, clean and tidy and we were impressed with the décor & interior design. It had all the kitchen essentials necessary and hot running water. Although it might have been good to have a portable stove or little BBQ outside, as well as an exhaust fan in the bathroom due to the smoke alarm right outside that went off. :) But overall it was amazing and Janelle was very quick and easy to communicate with! Would definitely recommend it to friends! Thanks a lot!!

    Keli2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Super clean, beautifully fitted out and in a green, peaceful location. Smooth check-in and thorough communication from Janelle. Appreciated the small touches - the architecture books, dvds, nice linen, guidebook with local tips :)

    Tracy2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice studio. 100% recommend!

    Hao2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • The art house is the best place to be for anyone who want to be healed by the amazing nature. The ambiance of the house is great, peaceful, arty and lots of thoughtful touches. Janelle is a wonderful host, will give you some very useful guide especially if you’re a foodie :P

    Joyce2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful art-deco space. Quick responses by the host also!

    Elly2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed one night at Janelle and Mikes place to attend a friends wedding nearby. The place is awesome! Beautifully decorated, lovely artwork and spotless. Check in effortless. Wish we could have stayed longer!

    Felicia2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The Art House is a beautiful, relaxing studio in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges. Tucked away so it feels very private. The space is really stylish and the bathroom in particular is a dream. Lush green views from every window add to the feeling of peace and seclusion...we'll be back!

    Peter2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, this place is an artsy dream! I had such a great stay, it is a perfect tranquil place to relax. Loved my stay here.

    Caitlan2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Little Violet was wonderful - close enough for a weekend getaway yet feels a world away. Charmaine has created a stylish haven with beautiful decor and thoughtful touches. Her cakes/food were to die for ! We ended up cancelling some dinner plans for nye because all we wanted to do was spend the night in the beautiful cottage/read/play games and eat all the yummy food ! Resident cat (Kiwi) was another adorable addition to this wonderful property. Wandering in the garden ( with its own wisteria arch ! ) and having breakfast amongst the trees and birds was magical ! First Airbnb experience was fabulous !

    Elle & Hakan2018-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • What an adorable little place my husband and I needed a relaxing weekend and boy oh boy what a wonderful place this was for just that. Charmaine you have created a gorgeous cottage and your personal touches were spot on our welcome platter and bottle of wine on arrival was very much appreciated, breakfast was outstanding and the little treats were amazing, as suggested by you I took home the delicious cookies and brownies for my grandson and he loved them Thank you so much for your hospitality and privacy we will definitely be back 5out of 5 is not enough to measure this perfection of what you have created

    Sharon2017-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Little Violet was one of our best Airbnb experiences yet! Our host, Charmaine, was there on arrival to welcome us and took us on a quick tour. The studio is tastefully decorated and perfectly clean. You could tell a lot of thought had gone into the look and feel of the space; with beautiful furs on the couches, colourful wallpapers and interesting hard cover books laid out on coffee tables. The property is tucked away in the quiet back streets of Tecoma amongst tall trees and lush greenery. The amount of food that was provided for our breakfast was quite daunting! It was all labeled with little notes explaining the origin of the produce which was a really special touch. Charmaine is also a pastry chef and on top of all the biscuits and cakes she had hidden around the house for us, she also left a phenomenal tasting Portugese tart by our door in the morning adorned with a cute handwritten note. Overall, we couldn’t have asked for much more for a quick night away from the city. A beautiful relaxing place to unwind, well situated within the Dandenong Ranges; complimented by the lovely Charmaine and all the little touches she added to make our stay special. Highly recommended and we will be back!

    Taylor2017-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • The Little Violet is everything you could expect from a cabin getaway! You will be spoiled rotten as Charmaine takes you through a mini culinary adventure, showing off her baking skills as she spoils you with baked treats and organic ingredients for breakfast!

    Jed2017-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Little Violet has been the most beautiful and relaxing experience for us, exceeding all expectations. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Charmaine, the friendliest and warmest host you could wish for. She had organised a gorgeous cheese and meat platter for us, along with a heap of homemade goodies (goats cheese and tomato tarts, cheesecake and apple cake, Lindt peanut butter cookies, a bottle of Shiraz and sherry), along with a huge gourmet breakfast platter. All ingredients were locally sourced and picked with utmost care. The cottage itself was extremely well designed and cozy, all rooms had plenty of light and you could enjoy the view of the mountains from the front porch. Extremely well maintained and had everything we required for the nights. Beautiful touches such as the many candles placed around the cottage to set a romantic scene, along with popcorn to enjoy while watching TV. Location was also fantastic, being right around the corner from Belgrave and a five minute drive to Sassafras, the scenery was incredible. Most importantly of all, Charmaime made us feel extremely special and spoilt. She was very attentive to all our needs and thought of everything we could possibly want being away. Lots of helpful notes around the house guiding us to make the most of our stay. We did not even leave the cottage for dinner as Charmaine had prepared us so much food, we wanted to sample everything she had to offer. If anyone is after an unforgettable trip away, I highly recommend staying at Little Violet. Had we had more time, I would prefer to stay a few nights longer. This had been the ultimate getaway which has renewed us and I cannot thank Charmaine enough for her gracious hospitality. It is evident that she loves what she does,

    Dorothy2017-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • We were lucky enough to meet Charmaine on arrival who took us through the beautifully decorated cottage. We were greated with an array of tasty treats such as cookies brownies cake and a cheese board. Also a beautiful selection was available for breakfast. Couldn't have recommended this venue more than enough. Thank you very much for the 5 star treatment.

The Apartment is close to both Angliss, and Knox Private Hospitals by car. As mentioned, we are next to the National Park, should you wish to bushwalk to Mt Dandenong, in a quiet, tranquil setting, yet close to all facilities. The house follows the slope of the hill and this apartment is on the lowest level accessed by a normal wooden walkway/deck. It can accomodate 2adults, plus dogs. We can accomodate most special needs given notice, including dogs and children. As Animal Aid volunteers, we are used to accomodating dogs, and have beds, cages, and other items. As we occupy other levels of the property, we are available for assistance and information, consistent with Social Distancing. Smoking is fine outside,such as on patio, but not in the house. Dogs - are great and we love them, but based on previous experience with tenants( We are also volunteers for Animal Aid) we reserve the right to assess bookings with dogs, particularly with new furniture and carpets.

    This is a quiet semi-bush land property on a dead end street leading to the National Park. The only noise may be from possums climbing around the potion at night, and the Kookaburras who for some reason burst into song around 3am.
  • Amazing view and well designed space with ample amenities. Great location, place to take in the sunset and relax.

    Darron2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place for someone who is seeking retreat in more quiet and residential area, close to the trail for hiking or running. David was really helpful with arranging the pick up from the airport and place came with some basic food supplies which is great if you arrive late in the day. If you are okay with walking about 25min to the train station to get to the city, and seek to be close to the nature, this is a perfect pick!

    Tereza2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • David is just the perfect host. He made us feel so welcome and he really goes the extra mile with the provisions he supplies . We were delayed returning the first day and he even took our dog for a walk. If you don’t want to stay in a stuffy hotel in the city this is the perfect location with a beautiful leafy outlook.

  • Anna and Robert are such a sweet couple. They treat you as family member and you could really stay at their place with nothing to worry about. I stayed in Ringwood for a four-day training course. Thanks to them, I had a fantastic experience other than the boring class. I'll definitely stay with them next time when I travel to Melbourne.

    The Barn is outrageously spacious, cosy and a very private two storey, self-contained hideaway. It's perfect for exploring the villages of the Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley or to relax and take some time-out. It is set in a peaceful and private environment, located just 1.8k out of Monbulk township. The barn can comfortably accommodate from 1 to 4 people, however there is one bathroom. Guests can enjoy a complementary & generous breakfast basket, free Wifi & Netflix.
    This space can comfortably accommodate from 1 to 4 people. The ground level has a kitchenette, environmentally friendly bathroom (shower only) and a spacious lounge/dining room with a couch which converts into a double bed. The kitchenette contains a microwave, refrigerator, 2 hob electric cooktop, toaster, kettle, crockery and utensils. There is a staircase leading to the Bed/sitting room on the 1st floor. Upstairs is your queen sized bed, small balcony and second lounge area complete with internet TV, Netflix, DVD player with a small collection of DVDs of classic musicals and a variety of movies including movies from the silent movie era for your viewing pleasure! Please note: The Barn is deliciously private, occupies my property on which there is my home and an inground swimming pool. My home and pool are NOT AVAILABLE to guests at any time.
    Monbulk is the big secret of the Dandenong Ranges. Perfectly placed so that whichever direction travellers head in from Monbulk, be it north, east, west or south, one cannot help discovering treasures contained in the villages of the Ranges or the Yarra Valley. There is beauty, charm and interest, no matter the season.
  • Tonis property is so beautiful- there were brilliant coloured parrots flying around, birds singing in the background. The house was clean, comfortable and such a joy to stay in. But honestly, it was Toni who made the trip memorable. She is warm, friendly and hospitable. I felt like a family friend coming for a visit, with the privacy of my own space.

    Laura2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tonis Barn.The venue is set in a very peaceful area and garden and would be ideal getaway depending on your circumstance.Toni is very creative with the usage of space and is extremely generous with the breakfast produce.The barn has a first floor which has a large bedroom and TV area and has 14 wide and metal steps from the ground floor to it.Despite the toilet and shower area being on the ground floor the staircase is well lit at night.Torches are provided.There are two(2)outside eating areas if you desire to use them.All in all Tonis Barn is great value for money,Toni is friendly and caring and responds promptly to any message.

    Barry2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • I had an amazing stay at Toni's place with my partner. It's very conviently located near the Yarra ranges/valley and Dandenong ranges. Monbulk town is also very close with everything you might need. The property itself is very spacious, and peaceful, completely isolated from the main house, the bed is extremely comfortable and Toni was kind enough to supply some tea/coffee and breakfast foods. Looking forward to coming back!!
