Hillcrest is a 14 y.o. farm house (accomm up to 12 guests privately) with all the character, views and tranquillity you would expect of rural living - but with all modern conveniences. Located in the Yarra Valley Winery district. Dog & Horse friendly.
Hillcrest is offered for weekend accomm (2 night minimum stays). The property is not to be used as a party venue for inviting external friends - controlled celebrations are to be enjoyed by the guests sleeping over for their special w/end away.

The space

You have private use of the entire house & land. The 10 acres are fenced off into separate paddocks with walkways - ideal if you bring your horse to stay with you. Complete with round ring, lunging lead & lunging crop supplied - or simply enjoy your horse free range grazing in your back yard - 3 acres specifically designed, fenced & gated for dogs also. The house is situated on the crest of a hill with full wrap-around deck, complete with 10-12 seater Spa, 5-burner BBQ, 270 degree views, Al Fresco living/dining (under cover and/or under the stars), outdoor & indoor dining tables (10 seaters), lounge & bar stools/table - all designed to sit back and take in the glorious views & sunsets!!

Guest access

You have private use of the entire house & 10 acres of land. You are in a very quiet rural setting for peace & tranquility. Properties such as this one, are ideal for small groups wanting to get away to celebrate your special occasion - but not designed to use as a party venue to invite all your outside friends to. We still respect our neighbours peace during the stays. You are only 1 hour from Melb CBD and & 5 minutes drive to Yarra Glen - situated right in the heart of the Yarra Valley winery district.

Interaction with guests

Even though you have private use, the owner/property manager will be living on a distant part of the land to carry out farm maintenance over the weekends. So any questions are only a phone call away (mobile) and we can assist you quickly during your stay - no problem at all. A personal check-in is what we aim for, unless other commitments make this impossible to do. We are very flexible to attend to your needs to ensure your stay is as wonderful as possible.

What a fantastic place. Deb was so lovely and the house was fantastic! Deb went as far as leaving towels on each individual bed for us all and even had left the freshly laid eggs for us also. I will definitely look at renting this place again!! The whole property is fantastic Highly recommend it!

Deb's been an excellent host. The communication leading up to and during our stay was excellent. The property was clean, set in a really secluded/quiet area, with a huge outdoor space to run around, and inside the house it felt very homely. We loved sitting around the fireplace. Thank you again for letting us stay :-)

Deb's place is simply perfect! Comfortable beds, lots of space. The fire was already lit when we arrived and Deb made sure we had everything we needed. A trip to remember!! The hot tub was also pretty wonderful!! Thanks Deb :)

There's not much I can say that hasn't already been said. The photos on the profile don't do justice to this magical location. I'm a Yoga instructor and brought a bunch of students here for a retreat and it was just amazing. The location was perfect for getting still and quiet. Deb went above and beyond, accommodating our needs for the retreat. The choice in check-in and out time is amazing because you don't feel overly rushed. We had an absolutely blissful walk in the nearby bush land and enjoyed the very spacious and hot spa to soothe our muscles. There were more stars out than I've seen, possible ever before. It was truly divine.
