This is the fourth time we've stayed here. The kids love it, plenty of room to run around. The playgound and goat feeding keep the kids occupied for hours. Cottages are fantastic, love the wood fire. The addition of the reverse cycle a/c is great. Will definitely be returning in the future. Michael.

Our family rented 4 cottages from 17 to 20 June 2016 to celebrate my wife's birthday. Yaling, Michael and Grant and their staff were very welcoming and helpful. The cottages were great. We had a transport problem on the Saturday and Michael came to the rescue without being asked. Fantastic customer focus. The cottages are nearby to the Healesville Sanctuary,...

The Birchwood Cottage was charming and ground stunning and the surrounding hills were absolutely gorgeous. There is a lake to wander around or watch the ducks and also at in a nearby paddock a dozen or so hungry (but extremely friendly) goats. Loads of birdlife as well, lovely to be woken too also. The Coonara was a delight if you...

Hi Carie, Thank you so much for leaving such a kind and detailed review of your stay in our Birchwood Cottage. We are so pleased you enjoyed your little three-night break with us!

My partner and I spent two nights in the delightful Loft cottage. Having a fireplace and a spa is such a luxury and gave the place a romantic atmosphere. The accommodation itself was very comfortable and included everything you could need, even milk and bread! Situated in the beautiful surrounds of Sanctuary Park with stunning views and peacefulness and nature...

The setting is beautiful, quiet, treed and peaceful. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. A bit disappointed in the cabin however. For the price I would have expected a little more for 4*. I think the breakfast provided could have had a little more imagination applied and presented in a more inviting manner. Overall the cabin had a feel similar...
