About this listing
The original double garden room.
An isolated wildlife paradise only 1 hour 15 mins from the centre of Melbourne. Use of pool and kitchen and gorgeous outdoor areas. Everyone loves it. Just read the reviews!
We live on 40 magnificently private acres on the Little Yarra River outside Yarra Junction in the Upper Yarra Valley with views to die for and tame kangaroos called Brynn and her baby, Rockin' Robyn.
There are wonderful restaurants and wineries close by and gorgeous walks on the Yarra Trail (also on our property down to the river)
Watch the horses grazing, pick from the fruit trees, play with the 2 golden retrievers (Gilbert and Sullivan) and cuddle with Felix the cat.
I could imagine this as ideal for someone wishing to spend some time writing at their very own country retreat or visiting what is virtually a wildlife retreat.
Ride bikes, go for breakfast, walk or spend time by the pool. Many people come intending to go off for the day and decide to stay here all day instead.
During the day it is 100% quiet.
In this area you need a car as there is no public transport.
PS if you would like your own ensuite and the mountain view, instead of the garden, try the Wombat Room on Airbnb
Guests have access to all amenities as required. Just ask.
PS I have spare isolated paddocks for anyone wanting to bring their own horse. I know what it is like to go away and leave the 'boys' behind!
Interaction with guests
We are flexible. Please tell us if you would like to be left alone, otherwise we are likely to offer cheese and wine.
We love our neighbourhood, because we have no close neighbours! It feels totally isolated with a vast view across the forest and mountains.
Safeways is 5 minutes away if you need anything and Warburton is 10 min away. The Warburton trail is a gem and brings bikes!
There is little public transport in the Yarra Valley. However, Hermann loves driving, so if you need a drive we are happy to arrange something for you.
Other things to note
We know lots of people in the valley and can put you in touch with people to go rafting or biking or therapeutic massage o
PS On this property we always carry a mobile phone wherever we go for safety. Please do likewise.
Mature guests only.
Drive very slowly on the drive because of wildlife, especially at night.
This is a 'no smoking' property
Please no extra people unannounced.
(No extra guests in camper vans without permission or babies as we have to consider other guests)
Please eat at the tables and not on the sofas.
Blinds in the lounge room go down to protect the piano in the morning.
No dogs (to protect the kangaroos)
Please do not feed the kangaroos or animals without supervision and best not to touch the horses if you do not know horses.
This is our home and castle and we love those who appreciate it as much as we do.
