Fresh air, birdsong, possums, frogs calling at night... Set among tall trees our home boasts terrific views and yet is close to a great range of restaurants and dining, and numerous sightseeing options. Close to the Yarra Valley wineries, the unique Dandenong ranges, Healesville Sanctuary, national parks, and just a single 45 minute train-ride to Melbourne CBD. The accommodation is well suited to couples and business travelers. Children can be accommodated by agreement.
The BnB space is a private wing with two rooms & own bathroom. A warm, whimsical "gold" themed bedroom with a comfortable double bed; complete with plenty of cushions, extra bedding and blankets; a small passage leads to a quiet restful private sitting room that can double as an extra bedroom; furnished with a couch, a café table with two cane chairs, and a buffet with tea & coffee available. Between these rooms is an attractive generous family bathroom with bath and separate shower recess, and separate toilet. We have instant gas hot water - you can always rely on getting a hot shower. We provide towels, plus quality shampoos, body-wash and soaps.
Your private wing is accessed via a door that opens directly off the main house entrance hall, and consists of a bedroom, a private sitting room that can double as a second bedroom, and a family bathroom with separate toilet. Guests may use the secluded study/loft (also off the main entrance hall) with panoramic views to the north-west, at will. Guests are welcome to access the kitchen and living areas of the main house, including the spacious lower deck and other outdoor spaces.
Usually your hosts - either Tamsin or Iain or both - are likely to be home, or at least just a phone call away. We are keen to make your stay as pleasant and enjoyable as possible, and very happy to help in any reasonable way we can.
We have two low-allergy, low-shedding pets: a small poodle dog and a Burmese cat. Both are friendly and of good temperament. Please note due to sensitivity a request to avoid use of highly fragranced personal care products or perfumes while you stay with us; please especially avoid any strongly fragranced sprays. Luscious high quality alternative personal care products are available for your use during your visit if you are unsure.
Iain plays keyboard and cello in Ska, Reggae, & classical music bands & gigs. He also writes and occasionally likes to binge-watch good TV and movies.
Between “grandma-ing” assignments; Tamsin likes to go for walks, read, create beaded jewelry, sew, paint and garden. Tamsin has a ridiculous number of spices in the pantry which she loves to use in her cooking.
