5/5 Excellent

Highly recommended
Communicating with Jan was lovely and she was extremely efficient with coming back to me when I had a query. Driving into the property felt like it was home. Very clean, the spacious bathroom was fantastic with a large walk in shower. Not sure what doona they have but I was warm as toast on a very cold night. I would absolutely come here again. Easy to find even if google maps cant provide you with directions due to coverage issues (my issue, not Basalts issue). A quick 6min drive into the main street.

5/5 Excellent

Cute villa
We were only there for a night but thanks for a wonderful stay Jan! The villa really has such a Swiss/Italian/Greek vibe to it. Views were beautiful and so peaceful, kangaroos right in the front yard in the morning. Place was clean and tidy, Jan was great and prompt with communication throughout, even in the evenings. Also a good amount of firewood were provided for us to burn!

5/5 Excellent

Wish we had stayed longer!!
This was the perfect little getaway, we wished we had stayed longer! It is in the most beautiful location, very peaceful and relaxing. Loved being able to cozy up by the fire in evenings and walk out amongst nature in the mornings. Cannot wait to come again.

5/5 Excellent

Short getaway to Basalt
The property was lovely, we had everything we needed and wonderful views and space. The wood heater was great and made for a cosy stay. Upstairs is a great space, and the outdoor area too. We’d love to return sometime.
