Nine Steps - private estate on 29 acres with stunning views of Mount Buffalo

Family-friendly holiday home in Porepunkah with water park
Nine Steps is an architect designed home and a unique luxury interpretation of the traditional Australian shed. With stunning views of Mount Buffalo and set on 29 acres of beautiful native bushland, this is your opportunity to enjoy a rural retreat in comfort and style.

• Only a 10 min drive to Bright, Nine Steps is perfect for families, friends and couples.
• Home to wombats, wallabies and deer which you'll likely see during your visit!
• Closest accommodation to spectacular Mount Buffalo for hikes, snow adventures and more.

You can gaze out at native bushland from every window and enjoy watching the ever changing face of Mount Buffalo. You may even have the pleasure of seeing Eurobin Falls from the house. Eurobin Creek runs along our property and we'll share with you the directions to a secret local swimming hole a few minutes walk from the house.

With no wifi or tv reception - Nine Steps is a rare opportunity to really switch off and reconnect with nature and with family, friends and loved ones. There are two TVs and lots of DVDs for movie night and quiet time though!

Very good Telstra 4G reception.

Nine Steps has everything you need for your stay with linen, towels and toiletries provided, heating and cooling, fully equipped kitchen (including a Nespresso machine) and plenty of parking for bikes and cars.

Room configuration:
• Bedroom 1 - queen bed, deck & ensuite

The House
• Nine Steps is a three bedroom, two bathroom home with a large open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area, as well as a smaller second lounge.
• The house is designed so guests are sheltered from the weather, while still feeling a part of the environment. Large picture windows are a key feature of the house, along with the many covered decks.
• The great room has a large wood burner, air-conditioning and three ceiling fans, as well as opening windows to catch the breeze and cooler evening air.
• The fully equipped cooks kitchen is set around an island bench with bar stools - perfect whether you're preparing breakfast or enjoying some local cheese and wine.

The Environment
• Nine Steps was built to be environmentally friendly with a 6 star energy rating. We're also members of our local Landcare Group and the Australian Conservation Foundation.
• Nine Steps is self-sufficient for water - collecting rain water and spring water which is then treated via sediment and UV filters.
• If you wander around the property you will see many wombat burrows and hear many birds (lots of kookaburras!).

Signature Experiences
• Private chef and fine dining experience: Nine Steps offers a private chef experience - a three course meal with local produce, table service and you won't have to do any cleaning up afterwards! Nine Steps has a 3.7 metre long dining table and a fully equipped kitchen, so why not add a private dinner experience to your special occasion, girls weekend, family gathering or cycling weekend.
• Private yoga class: The large 'great room' is perfect for a private yoga class, or experience a beautiful yoga practice outside in the 29 acre grounds of Nine Steps. Our yoga teacher can cater for all levels and will structure a practice to suit your needs.
• Alpine Concierge Services: To make your stay at Nine Steps even more memorable, imagine arriving to a hamper of local produce for breakfast or dinner. Or perhaps you need help organising a romantic occasion, or special event. Alpine Concierge Services can create a bespoke experience just for you.
• Weddings: We would love to host your wedding! Our approach is to charge for the house accommodation and a per head charge for guests. We leave the organisation of catering, seating, decorating, portaloos, etc to you so you have complete control over your special day. We can also connect you with local event organisers.

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing Stay
We stayed at Nine Steps for three nights in June, and had an amazing, relaxing stay. The house is beautifully designed and maintained in a peaceful location so close to Mount Buffalo with great views. The fireplace works wonderfully and the house was so cosy and warm. Would not hesitate to recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic property that is more a home than a holiday house.

5/5 Excellent

Stylish and Relaxing Country Retreat
We stayed two nights in March '20 and wish we had booked longer. The property is beautiful exactly as shown on the listing. Very clean and excellent amenities. The location is quiet and peaceful but only a short distance to the facilities of Porepunkah and Bright. Melissa the host was most helpful with directions and recommended nearby restaurants which were excellent. Highly recommended for a country getaway.
