Cozy and romantic
Beautiful little Italian style country house. Jan keeps the place spotless. Has modern appliances but still kept the traditional country charm. Loved seeing the kangaroos in the backyard each morning. Will definitely be back in the future!

Beautiful watching the kangaroos from the patio . Great place to stay for being able to go to Daylesford easily but then have some bush tranquility

Peace and tranquillity
Dusk and dawn are just magical with a mob of kangaroos close to the rear garden. A feeling of such peace and tranquillity awaits the guest. The house is so cosy and comfortable we will definitely be back

Lovely short stay!
Stayed for one night with my sister. We both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Place was beautiful and relaxing - so peaceful and quiet at dusk. Owner Jan popped over for a chat, which was nice. Place is close enough to town for a visit but far enough to feel like you're away from the busy hustle.
