Only 300 metres from the renowned mountain village of Sassafras, yet the moment you enter our gates you will be transported to serenity. This six acre property was once a beautiful nursery it's bordered by 100 year old American redwoods. Canadian cedar lodges are on the edge of the vast cool Victorian state forest.Tall ferns thriving in the damp environment Private balcony's are just meters away from the famous Oxfam walking tracks that take you to the many hamlets of the Yarra Ranges.
“We had an absolutely beautiful experience in Chudleigh Park. The area is so private, very well looked after and thriving with healthy greenery. There are picturesque walking tracks near the property, that we enjoyed a lot. The house/studio is gorgeous, it is styled very well, full of thoughtful touches and sparkling clean. The spa bath and fire place are just another level. Shellie and John are very thoughtful hosts. They replied to our requests promptly and politely from the very beginning and until the end of our stay. Shellie was thoughtful about our diet preferences and prepared for us a breakfast basket full of treats that were suitable for us. Thank you for sharing this unique space for us to enjoy our time in the nature! Hands down it was one of the best experiences we’ve had with Airbnb.”
Billabong Falls once home to International award winning landscape designer Phillip Johnson is now open as a luxurious bed and breakfast in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges. Stay amongst the majestic Mountain Ash and lush natural bushland in the stunning Yarra Valley. Escape to peace, quiet and reconnect with nature, listen to tumbling waterfalls, swim in the natural swimming pool or just sit and drink in the surrounds and expansive views. The property is fully heated and air-conditioned.
“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at billabong falls, as so many have said before me from the moment you walk in you feel at home with music playing and the smell of freshly baked bread in the air it was a gorgeous welcome and my friend couldn't wait to have a beautiful hot piece of bread with melted butter! I loved the fact that on a warm night you can just leave the fly wire doors in the bedrooms open and let the cool air in while hearing the sound of the waterfall just outside! The host was always quick to reply and did everything she could to solve any issues. I highly recommend a stay here, you will enjoy every part of staying in this beautiful house!”
Coorabell Retreat is a stunning barn conversion. Situated on a private corner of the property, Coorabell is a contemporary cottage features ceiling to floor windows that take full advantage of the surrounding stunning forest views, huge double spa, high definition LCD TV (that you can watch from the spa) and surround sound music system piped throughout the cottage, an upstairs bedroom with king size bed and separate sitting area, galley kitchen, real log fire, and air conditioning.
“Coorabell Retreat is a fantastic forest getaway and the perfect place to unplug and refresh. This converted barn looks rustic from the outside but provides all modern creature comforts on the inside. William and Penny thoughtfully provided wine and chocolates and had music playing on our arrival which was a lovely touch. The breakfast food provided was also welcomed and bed supremely comfortable. The extra touch came from us seeing three inquisitive Rosellas hanging around the front of the building and then realising there was bird food in the kitchen, giving us an opportunity to feed and enjoy their company even more! Comfortable in summer with airconditioning in the property, it would also be nice in winter with the fireplace roaring in the living area. The property is so secluded and well hidden (but still easy to find) that we didn't even need to blinds at night to have the real "night in the forest" feel. Hopefully will be back again!”
