Look unhindered over the Yarra Valley. This large room has a glass wall that views the mountains, forest and sky. Kangaroos right by the house on the lawn in the morning, it is the ideal getaway retreat. There is a private ensuite and copious space. This is the original master room of the house. 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 a tame Rescue Kangaroo called Brynn. 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, or play with the 2 golden retrievers (Gilbert and Sullivan). 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. 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 'friends' behind! 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. Woolworths Supermarket 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. But there is a train you can take to Lilydale, a bus that you can take to Yarra Junction, and we are happy to arrange a pick up for the remainder of the 3.5km journey from there for you! We know lots of people in the valley and can put you in touch with people to go rafting or biking or therapeutic massage. PS On this property we always carry a mobile phone wherever we go for safety. Please do likewise.

New York style Loft in Melbourne
$ 195 AUD per night
Spacious, open plan warehouse apartment, lovely furniture, linen etc. Very spacious living and dining area, two loft bedrooms with queen size beds. Two bathrooms. Beautiful, sweeping city views. 2 min walk to Richmond station- 5 mins to the city. Few minutes walk to MCG, Soccer Stadium and Tennis Centre. Wonderful restaurants, cafes and bars in neighbourhood incl Swan St and Cremorne area.
Old heritage listed warehouse conversion. Large space, with beautiful city views. Watch the balloons fly by in the morning if you're an early riser. Luxury for 1 or 2 people, can take 4, but both bedrooms are large lofts to embrace the views. Undercover parking on request and a lazy 2 minute walk to Richmond station, which is one stop from the CBD. Where possible I will greet the guests upon arrival to hand over the key and meet again to collect the key at the end of their stay and check that all was well. If I am not available, another contact is provided.
This bohemian neighbourhood is diverse with a great range of restaurants and one train stop or an easy walk to the City, major shopping centres, the botanical gardens and the river. Trains, trams, bikes to hire all within a couple of minutes. Please note there is no air conditioning in this apartment. There are large industrial fans and the air flow is usually good through the many windows. There are blinds, but I tend to live with them up - the views can be seen from everywhere. This apartment is not safe for children under 12 years of age and does not have disability access. The bedrooms are mezzanines and non enclosed. There are safety rails but these could be climbed, so the apartment is not safe for people who are not able to assess the dangers of the open plan design.
