Come and take a breath of fresh air! Immerse yourself amongst the tall forest and listen for the whistling of Puffing Billy as it break the silence of tranquility. This is a perfect get away from the city as we are only 1hr drive from Melbourne.
You will be able to stop and take a breath, away from the busy life.
We are located in a convenient distance to Emerald Lake Park and Mt Dandenong ranges. We are also about 40min drive to Yarra Valley wineries. You can take a nice drive there without the nuisance of city traffic.

    Cockatoo, VIC, Australia

    Elm Veil is a stand-alone updated 1920s weatherboard cottage set amongst a ¼ acre private garden. Visitors often describe it as cute, cosy, compact, unique but never large! The perfect get-away, a two night weekend stay will ensure you have the time to fully explore the scenic surrounds including nearby forest walking/bike trails, Puffing Billy Railway, restaurants, wineries and country markets. We welcome you to experience our neck of the woods.
    The street is un-sealed however the driveway is paved brick, there is a single carport and sensor lighting with steps to the front door.
    Cockatoo is nestled into the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges within a 30 minute dreamy drive to the delights of the stunning Yarra Valley including Healesville Sanctuary, Warburton and Mount Donna Buang. Closer to home Elm-Veil is well positioned to explore the villages of Kallista, Sherbrooke, Ferny Creek, Olinda, Sassafras, Mt Dandenong and Kalorama. A short walk from the cottage is a great Cockatoo IGA supermarket that caters for everyone’s needs and there is also a large Woolworths 10 minutes drive away in the pretty township of Emerald. If you are looking for great places to eat or drink there are many! The 'General Food Store' in Emerald is a very popular spot for top notch coffee and tasty breakfast options. 'The Independent' in Gembrook owned by renowned Argentinian chef Mauro Callegari serves food of exceptional consistent standard that will delight and surprise – you will never leave disappointed nor hungry! Also in Gembrook, Forest Edge will amaze with its spectacular views. A short drive away in Beaconsfield the 2 hatted O.MY is celebrated for innovative garden to table degustation but be sure to book to avoid disappointment. Bam Bam Italian in Avonsleigh is managed by the people behind the General Food Store. The pizzas are delicious and the Tiramisu will satisfy any lover of chocolate. On this note you must visit Medita Chocolates in McBride St Cockatoo, chocolate made without dairy, gluten, soy or refined sugar, they're very healthy! Yarra Valley winery to note is Medhurst Winery in Gruyere, a truly special place with great light meals.

  • We spent a weekend at Fiona’s cottage. The place was just what were after, an escape from the city for the weekend. The cottage was homely and relaxing with a beautiful garden at both front and back. It too was spotlessly clean. Fiona was very helpful and easy to reach, responding whenever we had a question. Thankyou Fiona for a wonderful stay! Would definitely be back again.

    Ange2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

  • This cottage exceeded our expectations, Lesley has everything you can imagine in this cottage, from kids toys to aerogard, there isn’t a single detail missed in this property. I would highly recommend this for a romantic getaway or a family stay.. we were a party of 2 adults and 4 young children visiting to do a puffing billy day trip and it was perfect in every way. The location is fabulous and Lesleys hospitality was outstanding..

    Jackie2020-02-14T00:00:00Z

  • The cottage is gorgeous. So close to the Puffing Billy track for watching it go by. In the middle of Gembrook and Emerald, so easy access to the supermarket and some great restaurants. We had the kid’s with us and the cottage had a portacot, high chair and plastic plates etc. along with books and toys to keep them busy. Even a potty!! Everything was perfectly clean and tidy. Coffee pods provided and a lovely welcome cheese and fruit platter. Couldn’t have asked for more! Thank you again Lesley and Peter. We had a great long weekend.

    Sarah2020-01-27T00:00:00Z

  • Lesley and Peters cottage in the hills is more than a cottage, it’s a palace! When you arrive you drive through beautiful leafy green ferns to arrive, booking is fast and easy, and despite being only a few kilometers from town and all supplies, gives you the feeling of being well away in the country, as does the wildlife in the trees surrounding the property.Three huge bedrooms, sleeping up to 8 with comfortable beds and quality linen, beautiful thick carpet and the sunken spa and king bed are just beautiful and so luxurious. Fully equipped modern kitchen with thoughtful touches like home made fruit pies and a wonderful cheese platter with fresh fruit - generous ! Late check out of 11am is always wonderful as well, pet friendly I give this property a 10/10!

    Jessica2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most wonderful stay at Lesley and Peter’s place for our family Christmas. The house is very spacious and Lesley and Peter thought of everything to make our stay perfect, including a cheese platter and delicious treats on our arrival. We followed their advice and arranged for Puffing Billy to stop right outside the house at the Fielder stop! Would definitely stay again.

Only 8 minutes drive to Emerald famous for the Puffing Billy Rail and Beautiful Emerald Lake Park. Emerald has many cafes and restaurants. This cottage has plenty of space inside so you can relax knowing you won't feel hemmed in. The furnishings have been carefully chosen to add to the old world feel.

    Avonsleigh is a quiet area just out of Emerald but we do boast a general store and restaurant. Emerald or Cockatoo would be your main destination for groceries and coffee shops. Olinda is 20 minutes drive up the hill for more shopping. the Puffing Billy Rail is located in Emerald. Also 5 minutes to Macclesfield Trout Farm.
  • A freshly renovated cottage in a beautiful location. Perfect for a weekend away. There were many touches in the place that Jenny had included to make the stay thoroughly enjoyable.

    Lisa2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful accomodation in a very peaceful area, lovely local shops and walks.

    David2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • What a spectacular home! Jenny has created such an elegant space filled with high quality touches. The home was extremely clean and the bed was bliss to sleep in, so comfortable with gorgeous views. Would highly recommend this place even if it is just for a one night stay.

    Anth2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Wow is an understatement when it comes to describing Carramar Cottage! Nothing has been overlooked and Jenny’s attention to detail is undoubtedly impeccable! Ideally located and exactly as described, even the pictures don’t depict how beautiful this Cottage actually is! Wether it’s a leisurely day trip to Healesville Sanctuary, a ride on Puffing Billy or an Uber into town for dinner, this cottage is perfect in every way.

    Jeff2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place to stay. Quiet, serene and peaceful. Felt really rejuvenated after and will be back for more!

    Khai Lin2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful cottage in a picturesque location. Views of trees and greenery from every room. High ceilings, clean, uncluttered, good vibes. And Australian made towels too. Thankyou, I'll definitely be back.

    Danielle2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage and surrounds. Jenny was very lovely and great at communicating. Stylish design.

    Jarred2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful, quiet and sparkling clean spot to rest and unwind. Coffee on the deck overlooking the bush while watching the visiting parrots was a highlight! We were so comfortable in the cottage that we didn't feel the need to leave our immediate surrounds - but it's a five minute drive down the road to Emerald, and the cafes and other amenities the town offers should you need to take the trip. Thanks Jenny for being so accommodating and for having us stay in your lovely home.

    Trickle Hill is close to Dandenong ranges, Yarra valley, Bunyip state park, and Puffing Billy. We are just behind Avalon castle- so great if you are attending a wedding there and want to stay an extra day. The area is fantastic - you are in the middle of the bush, away from it all, while being only a short drive to lots of activities, with shopping and great restaurants nearby! We welcome couples, solo adventurers and families. We are of course LGBT+ friendly! Dogs are very welcome.
    We have current guests who are stuck because of repetitive flight cancelations Please don't send booking requests whole this message is visible The cottage is a converted shed, with three bedrooms, a lovely living area and a cosy woodfire. We have a sheltered outdoor area, where you can have a barbeque, or have a small fire in a firedish. The cottage is in the bush, so you can walk out and try to find our resident breeding pair of Lyrebirds, echidnas, wombats, wallabies and kangaroos or the deer that live in our 'back yard'. Or just roam, which shouldn't be too hard on 67 acres . We are close to massive areas of bush with riding trails. We also love dogs, but cats can't come, as we do love our lizards and birds too. As we live in the bush, we do our best to keep everything as 'green' as we can- so please don't use harsh chemicals. Living in the bush brings with it that you cannot light a fire in fire danger periods, and, heating on a woodstove, means there is a hot stove in the room. (watch those little fingers...) Our aim is to give you a place of rest and enjoyment. We love to share our space as we love it here so much- and hope you love it too. As life is a project - don't expect 10* linen and luxury, state of the art gardens and clipped lawns, but a friendly welcoming atmosphere where you can be yourself and relax.
    Cockatoo is only an hour away from Melbourne, but feels much further away as it is such a small quiet township. We have some very nice restaurants close by though- (The Independent, BamBam and the newly opened 'the local' are very close, there are too many nice lunchplaces to mention here) and of course the Puffing Billy railway, Dandenong forest for walking, Bunyip state forest and Kurth Kiln for walks, cycling, horse-rides, 4WDing and picknicking. There are plenty of wineries in the area for indulging yourself a little, and if you want to stay closer to the cottage, you can go for walks in our bush, and spot some wildlife if you are treading lightly.
  • A great little place to stay for a relaxing visit of the Gembrook/Emerald area!

    James2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Charlotte2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely cute cottage right in the heart of beautiful Australian bush. You should pick up milk and basic groceries at one of the local lovely villages. Aukje and Arthur made us feel very welcome. The last part of the dirt drive is quite steep - we managed fine but were pleased it wasn’t wet. There isn’t WiFi. There are four very friendly dogs, and horses and pigs on the property. We loved breakfast and dinner out in various local restaurants. The meal at The Independent in Gembrook was a particular treat. Lovely access to local reserves with lots of options for walks. Overall a great little place.

    Sally2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Aukje's place is set in a peaceful location with everything you need. We enjoyed the the fire place, short walks around the property and were very comfortable.

    Naomi2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • A great little spot facing out over the trees. The open fire was an absolute cracker.

    Matt2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Such a great spot to escape the city. There is vast bushland right on the doorstep of the cottage and an amazing roaring fire to keep you warm in the winter months. Aujke and Arthur were very friendly and welcoming, especially to our little dog. They had some great tips about the area to help us maximise our time way. The cottage was cosy, spacious and very well equipped. We loved our stay and would go back in a heartbeat.

    Emerald is a beautiful scenic town popular for its picturesque lake and parks. Nestled in between the quaint towns of Cockatoo and Belgrave, Emerald is a frequently visited town among tourists to the Dandenong Ranges region. Whispering Trees is a beautiful and spacious modern bungalow on our property which is completely private and separate from the main house and within walking distance to the township. We think our bungalow is best suited for couples and solo adventurers and small families.
    The bungalow is completely self contained and a comfortable and perfect base to explore all attractions in the Dandenongs Ranges.
    Emerald is beautiful to visit any time of the year. You'll be treated to majestic views and colours. Please be mindful of our neighbours.
  • Third time stay: fantastic as always!

    Deb2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • We were looking for something quiet and private and this was perfect. Everything was spotless, and wonderfully laid out. The provision of tea and coffee facilities was a great thing at the end of the day. Communication was excellent with great advice on where to eat dinner. Thank you!

    Quaint and cosy bungalow - separate entry from main house - situated in tranquil bush setting. The bungalow is self contained with bathroom, kitchenette and split air with a super comfy queen bed. While there is no cooking facilities in the bungalow you are welcome to use the main kitchen. Likewise, take in the glorious sunsets from the main deck, or prepare a barbecue.
    Walk up the driveway and across the road is Sherbrooke forest where wallabies and lyrebirds abound. There is a lovely trail that takes you to Sherbrooke falls. You will also be ideally close to all the Dandenongs has to offer - Belgrave is minutes in one direction and the quaint townships of Sassafrass and Olinda in the other. Bushwalking trails are dotted throughout the Dandenongs, as are many other attractions such as the Rhodedendron Gardens, Skyhigh, Puffing Billy (of course!) I can point you in the right direction for good eateries and other local venues. Lots of birds come to visit - king parrots, rainbow lorikeets, rosellas, kookaburras and currawongs. You can feed some by hand!
    You are at the gateway to the Dandenongs. 5 minutes drive up the road is Sassafrass, a beautiful township, as is Olinda - 10 minutes drive from me. The drive around the Dandenongs offers spectacular scenery enhanced by the seasons. There is lots to see and do.
  • Robin’s place was lovely. Small and cosy but well designed for a stay by myself. Great location to go on bush walks and a nice view from the bedroom over looking bush land and the city in the distance. Bed was very comfortable. Had a very good night sleep.

    Andrew - Mary Ann2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay, a very cute and cosy room with a beautiful view of trees. Robin was a lovely host and very easy to communicate with.

    Bridie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Robin is an awesome host, and her hospitality is second to none. The Bungalow is a cosy little hideaway that I really love to come back to.

    Adam2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Best thing about this beautiful cabin is the view out the window over the rainforest - STUNNING! Especially with the beautiful mist we enjoyed. All super comfortable and really amazing value for the area. Small note that the bathroom wall/door doesn't go completely to the roof, which makes it suited to singles or couples/friends who are comfortable with each other :) We'd definitely stay again!

    Hannah2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy little bungalow right in the bush, it was so lovely and comfortable. It's attached to the main house but it's still private. It's very much for couple though as it's very intermittent. Super close to Belgrave and Upwey shops. Will be staying longer next time for sure.

    Karl2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • What a serene and beautiful spot! A real forest hideaway with semi-tame kookaburras and parrots in abundance. The little bungalow has a sink and small fridge; no cooking facilities but Robin allowed us full use of her kitchen and beautiful deck for our Christmas lunch and was super-friendly and helpful throughout. An idyllic spot; we hope to be back!

    Julie2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Place was wonderful. Surrounded by nature. The back entrance allowed private entry into the studio. Robin was a lovely and welcoming host. Recommended!

Including a beautiful rose garden out front, it has all the little touches that make your stay memorable. Cosy, crisp linen, towels and bedding, plump comfy pillows and a deliciously comfortable bed ensure a perfect stay and deep sleep! Plush, but not overdone furnishings help create an ambient, tranquil space to relax ,chill and unwind. The photos, though well done do not do it justice. It is a lot more spacious than you think, light, airy and very very quiet! Do yourself a favour and book your stay at The Loft . You will not be dissapointed .

    The Little White House is a presidential piece of perfection and the only one of its kind in the quaint town of Emerald, a peaceable jewel in Victoria's renowned Dandenong Ranges. Take the treasured elements of a traditional bed and breakfast and combine it with contemporary luxury that leaves you to enjoy a carefully thought out comfort zone for couples that still retains character and elegance.
    Designed with your enjoyment and relaxation in mind, the superfluity of the set up allows guests to make a weekend away feel like a private retreat personally planned to provide a space to recharge, romance and revitalise the busy urban mind and body. Why not absorb all Emerald has to offer by walking up to Puffing Billy station and experiencing The Dandenongs from a truly unique view. *Price Includes Breakfast for two * Proposal Packages available on request, contact host to find out more.
  • Beautiful spot, indoor fire place made it all the more cosy

Highly recommend this well equipped and charming house for a romantic stay

    Wake to kangaroos grazing in the paddock, and king parrots on the veranda outside your bedroom window. Just 50 minutes from Melbourne, this 7 acre retreat is bordered by nature reserve and pasture, making a peaceful base for exploring the Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley. The apartment features a spacious bedroom with ensuite, kitchenette and cosy living area flanked by verandas facing east and west. It is attached to the main house, but has it's own front and back entrance.
    The house stands at the back of a 7 acre property surrounded by bushland and farms, so it's very quiet here. But you are only 3 minutes by car from the township of Emerald, which boasts, 4 coffee shops, 3 restaurants, a pub, a major supermarket and markets on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month, with produce and hand made gifts, plants, and yummy things to eat. And of course, the famous puffing billy train, a tourist delight for many overseas guests.
    Most of the houses in this area are situated at the top of their land, so there isn't much noise or interference from neighbours...but we are only 1 hour from the city of Melbourne, via 2 freeways.
  • Tina's property is a wonderful place to relax and rejuvenate. My dog and I stayed for 8 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful bush landscape and wildlife. I spent many hours on the deck working, reflecting and and relaxing. The space she creates for your stay is homely, comfortable and has everything you need. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet place to take in all of natures beauty.

    Leanne2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location and spacious place. Tina was a wonderful host.

    Graham2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Tina's place is a little heaven lost in the middle of nature. Couple that with traditional Greek hospitality and you have the recipe for a wonderful stay!

    Germain2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is our third stay at Puddle Duck Lane. We are pleased to be able to bring our old small dog with us and like the location out behind Emerald - country air yet close to all the Dandenong Ranges have to offer. A chilly night was made comfortable with the effective and quiet air-conditioner. Although the hot water takes a while to come through, once it does the shower pressure is great. We enjoyed our stay and can recommend Tina's place to other guests.

    Elizabeth2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Tina is a great host and provides a warm and friendly environment. She has an amazing property and it was the perfect place. The bed was super comfy! I will be back.

    Eleni2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment in a beautiful setting. I spent a lot of time on the deck, watching the parakeets and listening to the kookaburras. Even though Tina was not around during the stay, she was very communicative and accomodating - with thoughtful touches such as fresh bread, eggs, and milk for brekky!

    Gaby2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and the place was very comfortable. Tina is such a great host and made us feel very welcome. Thank you Tina.

    Priya2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Puddle Duck Lane was the perfect getaway for us. Secluded, away from suburbia, and such a beautiful, natural setting. We loved seeing the ducks waddle past, the kangaroos, the kookaburras and the Tawny Frogmouth owls. The cottage is attached to the main house but very private. Inside was very clean, with all the amenities we needed. Tina kindly stocked the fridge with eggs, bread, butter, fruit, jam and yoghurt and there was muesli, tea and coffee. A cute kitchen with table and chairs. The lounge was very cosy. The bedroom and bathroom were large, and the bed was super comfy. Emerald Lake and shops/restaurants are very close by. Even though it rained on and off, we loved relaxing in the cottage. Thanks Tina for sharing your gorgeous property, for your suggestions, and for all the extra touches. We had a very enjoyable, relaxing weekend and would highly recommend Puddle Duck Lane. Serenity at its best.

    Lovely room with private bathroom in a lovely house with nice views, TV, extra heater, plenty of space, towels, sheets, wifi, all included, suit a couple or individual, short or long stay, close to transport and on street parking.
    Tranquility, views, and privacy as the room and bathroom are separate and far enough from the rest of the bedrooms and living quarters.
    Views, quietness and tranquility, country living yet so close of all amenities.

    The Barn is outrageously spacious, cosy and a very private two storey, self-contained hideaway. It's perfect for exploring the villages of the Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley or to relax and take some time-out. It is set in a peaceful and private environment, located just 1.8k out of Monbulk township. The barn can comfortably accommodate from 1 to 4 people, however there is one bathroom. Guests can enjoy a complementary & generous breakfast basket, free Wifi & Netflix.
    This space can comfortably accommodate from 1 to 4 people. The ground level has a kitchenette, environmentally friendly bathroom (shower only) and a spacious lounge/dining room with a couch which converts into a double bed. The kitchenette contains a microwave, refrigerator, 2 hob electric cooktop, toaster, kettle, crockery and utensils. There is a staircase leading to the Bed/sitting room on the 1st floor. Upstairs is your queen sized bed, small balcony and second lounge area complete with internet TV, Netflix, DVD player with a small collection of DVDs of classic musicals and a variety of movies including movies from the silent movie era for your viewing pleasure! Please note: The Barn is deliciously private, occupies my property on which there is my home and an inground swimming pool. My home and pool are NOT AVAILABLE to guests at any time.
    Monbulk is the big secret of the Dandenong Ranges. Perfectly placed so that whichever direction travellers head in from Monbulk, be it north, east, west or south, one cannot help discovering treasures contained in the villages of the Ranges or the Yarra Valley. There is beauty, charm and interest, no matter the season.
  • Tonis property is so beautiful- there were brilliant coloured parrots flying around, birds singing in the background. The house was clean, comfortable and such a joy to stay in. But honestly, it was Toni who made the trip memorable. She is warm, friendly and hospitable. I felt like a family friend coming for a visit, with the privacy of my own space.

    Laura2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tonis Barn.The venue is set in a very peaceful area and garden and would be ideal getaway depending on your circumstance.Toni is very creative with the usage of space and is extremely generous with the breakfast produce.The barn has a first floor which has a large bedroom and TV area and has 14 wide and metal steps from the ground floor to it.Despite the toilet and shower area being on the ground floor the staircase is well lit at night.Torches are provided.There are two(2)outside eating areas if you desire to use them.All in all Tonis Barn is great value for money,Toni is friendly and caring and responds promptly to any message.

    Barry2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • I had an amazing stay at Toni's place with my partner. It's very conviently located near the Yarra ranges/valley and Dandenong ranges. Monbulk town is also very close with everything you might need. The property itself is very spacious, and peaceful, completely isolated from the main house, the bed is extremely comfortable and Toni was kind enough to supply some tea/coffee and breakfast foods. Looking forward to coming back!!

    Lucas2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

    For those who need a comfortable self-contained, fully furnished one bedroom apartment. Dogs are also allowed To assist guests needing accomodation during this unusual period, we are offering a flat discounted rate. Book with us and get a clean, comfortable home with unlimited WiFi, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and self contained cosy space for working.

    Firstly, the apartment is self-contained, with its own access, has a king size bed, lounge area with 55” TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime, WiFi, and kitchenette, bathroom with shower, and washing machine and dryer. The Apartment is close to both Angliss, and Knox Private Hospitals by car. As mentioned, we are next to the National Park, should you wish to bushwalk to Mt Dandenong, in a quiet, tranquil setting, yet close to all facilities. The house follows the slope of the hill and this apartment is on the lowest level accessed by a normal wooden walkway/deck. It can accomodate 2adults, plus dogs. We can accomodate most special needs given notice, including dogs and children. As Animal Aid volunteers, we are used to accomodating dogs, and have beds, cages, and other items. As we occupy other levels of the property, we are available for assistance and information, consistent with Social Distancing. Smoking is fine outside,such as on patio, but not in the house. Dogs - are great and we love them, but based on previous experience with tenants( We are also volunteers for Animal Aid) we reserve the right to assess bookings with dogs, particularly with new furniture and carpets.

The apartment is ~5m x 5 m and has a sliding door leading to a deck of the same size with artificial grass, with stable and chairs, Dogs are fine inside (any messes will incur cleaning charges), and some dog minding may be available.
    This is a quiet semi-bush land property on a dead end street leading to the National Park. The only noise may be from possums climbing around the potion at night, and the Kookaburras who for some reason burst into song around 3am.
  • Amazing view and well designed space with ample amenities. Great location, place to take in the sunset and relax.

    Darron2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place for someone who is seeking retreat in more quiet and residential area, close to the trail for hiking or running. David was really helpful with arranging the pick up from the airport and place came with some basic food supplies which is great if you arrive late in the day. If you are okay with walking about 25min to the train station to get to the city, and seek to be close to the nature, this is a perfect pick!

    Tereza2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • David is just the perfect host. He made us feel so welcome and he really goes the extra mile with the provisions he supplies . We were delayed returning the first day and he even took our dog for a walk. If you don’t want to stay in a stuffy hotel in the city this is the perfect location with a beautiful leafy outlook.

We were over the moon with everything and we look forward to visiting again soon. Thanks for all your help!

  • Amazing place so stylishly done. Awesome breakfast provided. A beautiful quiet and peaceful setting! 9 minute walk to Puffing Billy 11minutes to main town but it is a very steep hill. But a very Easy drive!

  • Really great spot & hide away from the city life. Woke up to a skippy outside the window & enjoyed the very comfortable bed. Great hikes close by! Check this place out!

  • Richard's apartment is lovely and private. Richard was responsive to our needs and provided very thoughtful touches for us! Would stay again in a heartbeat.

  • An absolutely beautiful little cabin surrounded by lush nature. I was blown away with how picture perfect everything was, I didn’t think it could look better in person than online but I was proven wrong. The modern bathroom and living space was beautifully minimal, allowing you to pay your full attention to the forests that surround the cabin. I greatly appreciated that both dairy and soy milk was provided, as well the nuttelex spread and the muesli being very inclusive to all die try requirements, this was very thoughtful of the host :)

  • The perfect stay!! Richard was a fantastic host and made feel very welcomed. The space itself is spacious and comfortable, set among the forest, which is a beautiful sight to wake up to each morning. In addition, it was a hassle free check-in and great communication from Richard leading up to and during the stay. Highly recommended.

    Emerald is a stunning little village that is brimming with country charm. The township offers a wide range of cafes, restaurants and shops, as well as hosting a large, outdoor market on the 3rd Sunday every month. Emerald Lake Park is a premier attraction in the Dandenong Ranges that has many family-friendly facilities. BBQs, playgrounds, a pool, paddle boats, forest tracks, fishing, a huge model railway, café and a railway station for Puffing Billy. The famous Puffing Billy passes through Emerald on it’s way from Belgrave to Gembrook and actually has three stations within the village — at Emerald, Nobelius and Lakeside (in the park). There are a number of walking tracks in the area that wind through beautiful temperate rain forests, teeming with native wildlife.
  • Wow! Where do we start... Carmel’s little Hideaway in Emerald just completely exceeded our expectations. Carmel was attentive to our needs without being intrusive. The stay was a home away from home with every intricate detail nurtured and delivered in style and quality. The art decor was just gorgeous and tastefully executed throughout. The grounds were whimsical and beautifully landscaped, incredibly peaceful with an ambience that fit perfectly with the stunning surrounding Emerald backdrop. Our highlight was that Carmel had every little detail covered from beautiful breakfast supplies right down to mozzie spray. The local township is a two minute drive which included beautiful cafes and the best bakery in Australia that you just have to visit to believe. Carmel was a fantastic guide knowing when, how and what. This stay is an easy 10 out of 10 hands down !!! We can’t wait to return.

  • Had a lovely stay. Place was tidy and beautiful.

    Damon2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Carmel's place was fantastic! It was spacious and comfortable with plenty of space for two people. We enjoyed the amenities, in particular the shower and bed which were both great! Breakfast was provided and there was plenty of tea and coffee as well. Carmel also stopped by to check-in on us every now and again which was great!

  • Beautiful, clean and well equipped. Lovely location close to Emerald township. Lovely friendly hospitable host. No complaints at all.

    Trudi2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • A really perfect place for a near-Melbourne getaway that feels like you're in the bush. Carmel's place is very well set up with a comfortable, modern and newly renovated interior. There are funky design touches throughout with very generous amenities. Carmel was highly responsive and helpful pre and post-booking. The garden is a particular highlight in its design and positioning in the surrounding bushland. Watching the sunset through the huge gum trees at the highest tier of the garden is highly recommended. Highly recommend this stay. Thanks Carmel
