Marcus was a wonderful host who made us feel most welcome however the cleanliness of the house was very disappointing.

Marcus is a wonderful host!! Very friendly and welcoming!! The place is spacious and has everything you need to have a comfortable stay. It dropped to about 3 degrees while we were there but Marcus lit the fire and heated the place up! The place is very close to the Avoca pub where I had THE BEST chicken parma for dinner!!!!

Great location, friendly host, but guest areas need a good clean. The shower needs some attention as it is leaking and hard to control the temperature and no water pressure.

Home away from home! Marcus welcomed us into his home on the first day and we felt so comfortable there that it was hard to leave after our 5 night stay. Avoca is a lovely town in the centre of the wimmera district and a short ride from the towns of Stawell, Ararat, Maryborough and Halls Gap. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as we were made to feel like part of the family and the lovely Laura, Marcus 's beautiful little daughter, was a bonus. We had most of the house to ourselves which made it very easy to cook and launder our clothes each day and sharing meals with everyone stopped me from feeling homesick!
