“Writing retreat”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Our hosts provided exceptional service, provisions and an utterly fabulous studio for writing. We stayed a week and achieved a terrific outcome in this ideal tranquil garden setting with superb views. The quality of amenities is outstanding with lots of attention to detail - a real away-from-home treat. This studio is an ideal location for academics or postgrad students to focus on their writing without distractions and free wifi is a bonus. We are already planning our next visit.

“Nagoondie Studio--Comfort, Cleanliness, Cost-effectiveness at a Great Location”
Reviewed 7 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The Nagoondie Studio is a great choice for the couple seeking a private, quiet location for a getaway weekend or as a base for visiting the cellar doors of Yarra Valley. My wife declared it, "Perfect," meaning it was very clean; had a comfortable bed and other furniture; had a lovely garden and forest view off the front porch; and was well-priced. The provided continental breakfast materials were quite good and more than adequate in quantity. I especially liked that everything in the cottage was in good working order, including the gas grill on the front porch. Although the downtown of Healesville was only a 15 minute walk, we chose to grill at the cottage and enjoy our privacy and the surroundings. This was a wonderful place to stay.

“Lovely lovely place!”
Reviewed 8 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

we booked Nagoondie Studio as it was close to Rochford Wineries (day on the green) Very clean and tidy. It was just perfect, and the breakfast supplies were a nice touch. It really is just like the pictures. Will definitely stay again next time and will highly recommend to anyone!

My husband and I stayed here for a week, as our friends were getting married in Yarra Glen. The property is absolutely gorgeous. The studio is at the back of the property and very private. The gardens are beautiful and the parrots colorful. The studio is just the right size for a couple and very clean. Christine provided us with breakfast provisions and the grocery store is within walking distance if needed.

“Excellent stay - beautifully appointed, quiet and relaxing”
Reviewed 12 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Nagoondie Studio is the perfect retreat. Spacious, separate lounge from bedroom, deck to sit on when the sun is out, beautiful linen, modern, comfortable furniture, lovely bathroom with deep bath and separate shower. The gardens you look out to are lovely, birds are the only sound you will hear. If I wanted to write a book, and I could afford to stay here for 2 months in the summer, this is where I would come. Very peaceful and relaxing. Privacy screening from the main house. I highly recommend Nagoondie Studio as a place to relax and unwind. I even asked Chris if she could cater for a gluten-free breakfast, and she went above and beyond my expectations. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
