Tall Trees Chalet is nestled in the forest above Healesville in the Yarra Valley. It's a detached dwelling, adjoined to a large outbuilding, but close to the main house on our 5 acre property. It is surrounded by tall trees, mountain creeks, ferns, wildlife, historic ruins & enchanting gardens. We live on the property with our two young children & are happy to interact or leave you in privacy. The Chalet is a great base to explore the region. Your host is also an experienced wine tour guide!

The space
The space was designed & hand built by your hosts in a mountain Chalet style with exposed Oregon beams, high ceilings, lots of natural light, quality fittings and an open plan feel with views to the forest. The kitchen & bathroom bench-tops are made from timber harvested on the property. The fit out features a kitchenette with sink, microwave, toaster, kettle, Nespresso coffee machine & fridge; ample for most short stays. A new electric BBQ is also provided.

There is a new Queen size bed with quality linen & comfortable fold out double sofa for up to two extra guests or children. Plush towels, smart TV with Netflix, split system A/C, WiFi and dimmable LED lighting complete the space. Guests can park right at the door with easy access and no steps. Enjoy your complimentary slippers as you enter.

A boutique welcome hamper is provided to get you started, featuring locally produced Lavosh, condiments, coffee pods, tea, cereals and cookies. In the fridge you will find milk, San Pellegrino sparkling water, spring water & chilled glasses.

In the bathroom you will find a set of deluxe Kudos toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body lotion & shower gel). Other hampers can be arranged for special occasions ie: anniversaries, weddings, birthdays etc, all of which can feature a selection of local produce, wine, chocolate, dairy etc. Please get in touch to discuss inclusions.

If you are visiting in winter the Chalet is cosy and warm, perfect for exploring the nearby mountains which all get a covering of snow, just 10 mins drive up the hill. We occasionally get snow on the property during winter peak as well!

In summer, visit the creek to cool off in complete privacy among the ferns. Lay in the shallows on the river stones in the crystal clear water and soak up a truly unique bathing experience!

King parrots are friendly daily visitors and can be fed all year round, or wander down and pat the family chickens 'Henny and Penny". Bring your binoculars for spotting rare birds and go out at night with a torch to find owls, wombats and wallabies.

Your host is an experienced wine tour guide operating a luxurious Mercedes Benz R500 vehicle. Private tours are available to guests at a discounted rate and are fully inclusive (no extra costs). Please contact Chris at time of booking to discuss options and pricing.

Covid cleaning: We use commercial grade cleaning products including 'ViraClean' which kills Covid. All touch points and surfaces are thoroughly cleaned to the highest standard during changeover. Disposable sanitising wipes are provided as well as disposable gloves, cleaning cloths, paper towel, hand sanitiser and air freshener.
