Where do I start. From the moment you meet Lesley, your host, you know that you are about to experience something special. Charming, knowledgeable and so passionate about making sure that your stay is everything that you want it to be. We spent three wonderful nights in the Treehouse Cottage. The ambience of this cottage is amazing. Gazing into beautiful... More

We've booked one night stay in Olinda Cottage for my birthday celebration and it was fantastic! The cottage felt so cosy and warm with log fire, port and chocolates and best of all, the hot tub!!! We would definitely return to try other cottages next time. Highly recommend for a romantic getaway!

Fantastic little cottages with personality nestled amongst very pretty gardens. The cottages are well maintained and are in a great location within short walking distance to both Olinda and Mt Dandenong as well as the National Rhododendron Gardens. The breakfast supplies were plentiful with enough to last for the entire weekend and the little extras such as chocolates, nibbles and... More

The night we spent in Fernwood cottage was one that we'll never forget. Lesley was so welcoming, friendly and a pleasure to deal with. No detail was spared when she showed us Fernwood, where everything was, and how everything worked. The cottage itself is exquisite, majestic but cosy and looks exactly like the pictures provided. We loved how everything was... More

Arcadia Cottages was amazing. We stayed in the Olinda Cottage. It was very cute and cozy. Attention to detail was amazing. The hot tub was fantastic, we spent lots of time melting away and drinking wine. The breakfast supplies were unbelievable, it was impossible to eat it all but it was all lovely. The hosts are very welcoming and give... More

From our first experience in meeting this guest we were confronted with a situation that is an exact template of the type of credit card fraud most commonly experienced in the accommodation industry. We sought guidance from our bank regarding the situation and proceeded according to their instructions. Unfortunately the guest refused to appreciate the validation procedures requested of us...

We stayed in The Olinda Cottage for two nights during Winter - what an amazing place! The cottage has an old-world charm, yet is completely modern. Upon arrival we were greeted by a crackling coonara fireplace, background music, delicious and generous breakfast hamper (including fresh bacon and eggs) and our additional cheese platter, all ready and waiting for us…. we...
