Wedding weekend
Claire is a responsive, caring host who ensured our stay went smoothly and enjoyably

5/5 Excellent

Everyone loved the property adults and children.
The Farm House was delightful with everything we needed supplied. The 5 children loved the garden and games room. What a beautiful garden with so many surprises, great for Easter egg hunting. The two ‘billy carts’ were a high light. All cooking utensils and appliances we needed were there including Nespresso coffee machine. Now everyone has an ambition to find a similar property in the wonderful region! Thank you Claire for the amazing welcome package. On behalf of all our family , thank you Claire and Andrew. Ps one little thing to point out ,the ceiling lights above the cook top don’t work and neither does the light in the exhaust fan. Regards Sandra.

5/5 Excellent

Am amazing venue for our wedding with such a relaxed vibe!
We absolutely loved our stay at Butterfly Retreats! The owners kindly gave us the opportunity to host our wedding at their stunning venue. It was exactly what we wanted- warm, inviting, charming and relaxing! The effort and time that Claire and Andrew put into the property before our big day was outstanding-not to mention the lovely little gift and hamper that they left for us! Thanks for everything, Danielle and Pete x

5/5 Excellent

Supreme location; awesome house; picturesque property
We just had a long weekend at Butterfly with three families. Both the kids and the adults had an absolute ball. Terrific memories have been made. The kids didn’t once ask for an iPad. They remained outside playing footie and cricket on the lawn; they made ‘lemonade’; the house was fully kitted out activities for the kids- including a games room- to allow the parents to have a break from the darlings. The parents were able to enjoy a couple of (boxes) of wines and nibbles on the veranda whilst the kids played. BBQs were our meals of choice. We walked to the Red Hill show and to Red Gum BBQ. Both were awesome. We all left wishing we owned the property ourselves. Awesome stay!

5/5 Excellent

Everything just perfect!
We had a wonderful stay at this property. We stayed as 2 couples but this would also be perfect for 2 large families. There was plenty of space and it suited our needs perfectly. We spent the weekend exploring the Peninsula and this was a great central location to do this from. We spent the afternoon/evenings enjoying the gardens and the outdoor sitting areas. There are two wineries on your doorstep and Red Hill BBQ is walking distance for a casual meal. The local store had beautiful produce and was only a short distance away. The house has everything you need for an easy getaway. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and there are heaps of activities available to do. The beds were so very comfortable. Claire was a pleasure to deal with and made us feel very welcome and that we were spending a weekend at a friend's place. Thank you to Claire! This is clearly a well loved space that is presented beautifully and very welcoming.
