(Note: we chose to leave the property prior to our check-out date, and will not seek a refund) Our party of 2 booked the 'Cottage, 2 bedrooms (Magnolia)' which is listed as containing 1 king bed and 1 queen bed. Two rooms were what we needed, so the listing was perfect. Unfortunately, the listing is not accurate. According to the correspondence with the listed mobile phone number, 'the additional bedroom is not available when only 2 guests are staying. We can provide the 2nd bedroom for an additional $50.' There was nobody on the site to assist with our situation, and reception is only available for Telstra phones (Optus has poor or no reception). Some other notes - the owners request your address, contact details and check-in time immediately after confirming your booking, and will not provide check-in information until you have done so. Accessibility is tricky, as the cottage is at the top of several gradual flights of stairs from the car park. There are also a couple of steps up to the master bedroom, and one step down to the bathroom. We noticed other additional charges for not washing dishes, and the provided firewood would have lasted perhaps one night. The shower runs the gamut of hot to cold and back. The guest book with the wifi password was hidden under the television. We are residents in the area, and are proud to say that the Dandenongs are an amazing area to visit in Melbourne. Please be wary of this property, and I hope that the information above helps.
