This is charming and very comfortable accomodation set in a lovely garden in a quiet and secluded area. Rita was an excellent host - very accomodating, easy going and a good communicator. She very kindly offered to drive us to the wedding we were attending that was a 15 minute drive away, and then picked us up afterwards. It was a great bonus to us. Nothing was a problem - early check in and late check out were freely agreed to. We would heartily recommend Rita, Frank and Idaway.

Rita's cottage is absolutely beautiful. Tucked away in the tranquil surrounds of the Dandenong Ranges. We booked to stay here because we were attending a wedding and wanted somewhere close but without paying for a hotel. Once walking into the cottage it felt like a little home away from home. We felt very relaxed staying here, and we were provided with a delicious breakfast selection (which we did not expect and appreciated very much). Rita also offered us a lift to and from the wedding venue (which I thought was very lovely and she does not have to do this) but I declined as I didn't want to put Rita out. I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone and I will definitely rebook myself if we ever travel down that way again.

This studio is a lovely space in a tranquil setting. Rita is a welcoming host but not in any way intrusive. A great spot if you are looking for somewhere to stay in the Dandenongs.

Rita was a wonderful host! The cottage was lovely, cosy and clean, with plenty of heating for our wintry weekend. There were also some really thoughtful touches like croissants, fruit and cereals for breakfast and even some chocolates. My partner and I had a wedding nearby and when we were stuck without a lift at the last minute, Rita and her husband were kind enough to offer us a ride. We had a lovely chat: they're new to air b'n'b, but used to run a bed and breakfast and have lived in the area for a long time. I'd gladly stay there again!

Myself and my husband Frank have used Airbnb in nine countries and loved the experience . We decided we had the room and enjoyed meeting travelers and have taken the best of our experiences to create Idaway. I was brought up in a guest house in Wales and until eight years ago had a bed and breakfast for twelve years. We want to share the beautiful place we live in and can tell our guests the best places to eat and visit. Plus we are fun people.
