We stayed in the villa Tor for two nights. My partner and I are a gay couple - this didn't seem to bother the owner who made us feel very welcome upon our arrival. The villa was modern, very private and we were very comfortable throughout our stay. The views lived up to expectations and the privacy was great. A breakfast hamper was provided which had plenty of food - more than enough for breakfasts over the two days - we hardly needed to buy any food during our stay. A barking dog came out to greet us upon arrival. I'm nervous of dogs, but this dog was well trained and kept to the area around the owner's house (away from the villas) at all times. The villa was very clean, very well kept and fully equiped with absolutely everything we needed. The spa bath was good and had the view promised. The shower was also very spacious, and the bed comfortable. All rooms of the villa had spectacular views out across the gorge and across to the Beechworth township. We had seen on their website that there might be no Vodafone reception. We found Telstra and Optus mobile reception to be excellent during our stay. StoneTryst was the perfect location for a romantic weekend getaway.
