Villa Gusto is the perfect weekend escape from Melbourne. Relaxing in front of the fireplace with friends and a glass of wine, you feel completely at home with the hospitality shown by Ben and Kirsten.

Everything was fantastic! The room was beautiful and spotlessly clean, the swimming pool magnificent, the garden gorgeous! And the meals were superb. Our dinner was five star with perfectly matched wines and breakfast just as exciting. Ben and Kirsten were really friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you

Very pleasant friendly and accomodating, hosts /owners Ben and Kirsten are amazing they do everything beautifully. Food for dinner and breakfast was divine. The grounds and garden manicured to perfection, the pool sparkles. Perfect place to relax after a day on the saddle of a bike. Definitely recommend Villa Gusto.

We stayed here for the 3rd time in the past 2 years last weekend for 3 nights. The service, meals, comforts and amenities are outstanding for anyone wanting a quiet weekend away from it all. They do small and large meals better than the 5 star restaurants in the city at very reasonable prices with a wine matching only a...

My wife and stayed at Villa Gusto over the Victorian Labour Day long weekend. Couldn't fault a thing. The previous reviews of this beautiful and relaxing Mediterranean accomodation house say it all. Well done to Ben and Kirsten. Do your self a favour and book without hesitation. You will not regret it.

Villa Gusto is the perfect place to relax, unwind and indulge. Breakfast was just delicious as were the Apertivo selections. Wines were great also. Loved our room, the gardens and of course, the pool. Kirsten and Ben were the perfect hosts. Grazie mille!!! We will definately be back. Very highly recommended.

Just back from an amazing w'end with great friends staying at Villa Gusto. Ben & Kirsten are exceptional hosts - professional and attentive with an obvious desire to make VG the best it can possibly be. The accommodation is faultless. Would strongly recommend prearranging an evening meal rather than the light snacks on offer. Excellent food and wine.
