  • I knew Alkira was going to be amazing simply based on the photos but when you get there you find it really is something special. From the property, to the yurt and every little detail in between, the place is absolutely stunning. You can tell how much love has gone into this place. A weekend away here was exactly what I needed. Thank you so much Emily. Xx

    Madison2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Emily’s place is highly recommended. It is an absolutely gorgeous space made even better with the special touches added on arival. Check in was made very simple and there was plenty tips on what to do in the surrounding area. There is everything you need to have a relaxing time including a Bluetooth speaker, board games and even some facemask cream. The toilet and shower facilities are clean and very unique. There is also a fantastic bbq with all the utensils, as well as a fire pit with marshmallows for smores. Thanks Emily.

    Kyle2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Emily has created such a beautiful space to relax and unwind in. Every detail is carefully thought of and perfectly executed. Cannot recommend this cozy little escape enough!

    Troy2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Alkira was exactly what we needed to reconnect. Emily thought of every little detail to the smartly matched decor to breakfast in the morning. I would also highly recommend ordering a food hamper as well since it just added to the charm of the yurt. Will definitely stay here again if we’re ever in Australia again, and have already told all my friends and family about it! Thanks Emily!

    Stefani2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • A gem of a place— it’s like arriving to your dream hut. Consider just staying in for the whole day; Emily has prepared everything for you to cozy in this homey, fuzzy-warm of a nest. Can’t ever recommend this enough. ✨✨

    Aldo2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had the best stay in Emily’s Yurt, the design was gorgeous and the surroundings are so serene! It was so lovely strolling around the farm and meeting all of the friendly animals 😊 would highly recommend booking this accommodation! Thanks for having us, Tam & Steve

    Tamara2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I had a fantastic experience at Alkira. Far beyond anything I had imagined. The location is superb and the Yurt has been constructed with some much consideration

    Rajesh2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • What can I say? Emily’s yurt was wonderful! The property is picturesque and the yurt itself was a dream. Every aspect of it was beautiful - the little bits and pieces inside made it feel cozy and comfortable. The bathroom was lovely and we didn’t mind having to walk down a few stairs to get to it! We cooked dinner at night with the little bbq provided and had a lovely fire in the fire pit! We were greeted by a little horsey, a beautiful dog and a few geese when we arrived and they were all friendly and adorable! We loved staying here and would love to again, thank you Emily for creating such a special experience :)

  • Delightful place in the middle of a beautiful and very green area. The birds came to visit at the bird feeder every morning. Shellie was a lovely host, and provided a basket of fresh and tasty breakfast materials on the first day. With a comfortable bed, fun spa, warm heater, double-shower, handy little kitchen, it had everything we needed for a marvellous holiday.

    Chris2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Chudleigh Park is a beautiful haven that really allows your brain to reset. Shellie is a thoughtful and friendly host but will give you your privacy. The views are lovely and location is very close to a popular hiking trail and village.

    Allison2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Shellie was an amazing host! The room is lovely with plenty of space for a romantic couples getaway. The breakfast basket was a lovely touch with some really amazing goodies! Definitely worth staying here!

  • It was lovely to stay is such a beautiful cottage with a fabulous host to look out for us! The birds were stunning and we will definitely be back if we are ever in the area again 💕 Sheridan and Andrew

    Sheridan2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The location is beautiful and we were provided with so much great food for our stay. The local birds kept us company which was very cool.

    Cody2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely location and gorgeous cottages! Overlooking secluded woods you share the beautiful grounds with kookaburras, cockatoos and birds of many colours. Just 2 mins walk to the gorgeous village of Sassafras, yet you feel a million miles from civilisation. This was our second stay and we will be back!

    Rob2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I had an amazing time away here. The breakfast hamper was full of delicious food and fresh juice and milk. Everything in the hamper had been locally sourced. We enjoyed feeding the rosella’s and parrots by our back door. The property is super simple to find and is just off the main drag. If we were back in the area we would come back before looking elsewhere.

    Rowan2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and clean cottage. Great amenitites and thoughtful touches, especially with the amazing breakfast!

    Lauren & Susan2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place! Great location, beautiful landscaping and a great host. Thank you

    Nat2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Billabong falls was the perfect, peaceful enviroment to spend my wedding morning and start my new life with my Husband. Sarah went above and beyond... bread baking on arrival, asking us what milk we drink, chocolates, wine, fruit... and lets not forget that waterfall! Billabong falls will forever hold such beautiful memories to us and we're already making excuses to come again.

    Jazmine2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • This amazing home is located in the centre of a forest, with spectacular views, unique amenities and immaculate styling. Sarah really is a super host, who went above and beyond to make our stay incredible. This has been the best Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in (both in Aus and even internationally). Sarah is incredibly thoughtful, hospitable and quick to reply. You won’t find another home like it.

    Erin2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Even though the photos for this place are incredible, they still don’t do any justice to just how magical, majestic and serene this property truly was. From the moment we arrived, we were captured by the beautiful calm it provided and had the best time relaxing and switching off from the world for a while. We had the best sleep in ages in the incredibly comfortable beds and we can’t wait to return in the winter to make use of the fireplace. Unexpected touches of fresh fruit and local tips on our personal interests were fantastic and even the unseasonal rain couldn’t stop us from swimming in the pool!

    Nella2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at billabong falls, as so many have said before me from the moment you walk in you feel at home with music playing and the smell of freshly baked bread in the air it was a gorgeous welcome and my friend couldn't wait to have a beautiful hot piece of bread with melted butter! I loved the fact that on a warm night you can just leave the fly wire doors in the bedrooms open and let the cool air in while hearing the sound of the waterfall just outside! The host was always quick to reply and did everything she could to solve any issues. I highly recommend a stay here, you will enjoy every part of staying in this beautiful house!

    Rebecca2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Billabong Falls is an enchanting space, with the most hospitable of hosts. Thank you for the charming breakfast food, the music, the thoughtfulness. I loved the opportunity to be surrounded by nature without having to leave the property, and to feel like every space provided a new and different experience. From the large glass windows opening up onto the mountain ash, to the balconies giving audience to birdsong, the soothing natural pool and my favourite of all the grounding outdoor shower... Finally the sustainable design spoke of a respect for nature that made my heart happy. We loved out stay here.

    Tina2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A little gem in nature. For family with kids, bring a binocular for bird watching :)

  • From the moment I heard about Poppy’s vintage caravan, I wanted to experience it for myself. I’d heard an absolutely glowing review from a friend and decided to book for a surprise weekend for my partner’s birthday. Not only was the property more beautiful than the pictures suggest (and my imagination had managed) but the special little touches from the host made everything just that extra bit better and welcoming. Audrey was very communicative and I felt very comfortable to ask if we had any queries or concerns (though we had zero concerns at all!) My partner and I had already agreed to return for another stay sometime about an hour into being there! Thank you again for a lovely weekend away ☺️

    Alisi2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location & so close to the town centre ! Although it rained during our stay, falling asleep to rain drops & waking up to birds chirping made it surreal. I would definitely come back and stay. Thanks so much Audrey!

    Sonia2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place for a getaway. Beautiful spot and very cosy place to stay!

    Joe2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, peaceful and quiet...highly recommended.

    Michael2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • I only spent 1 night at Poppy's but I wished it had been longer. Audrey has set up such a wonderful space for her guests - a cosy, well equipped caravan, a massive deck, a gorgeous hot tub area and a bathroom that ticks all of the boxes. Lots of different seating options, a generous supply of towels and blankets, and a very thoughtful touch of sparkling wine and chocolates on arrival. Communication with Audrey was easy and prompt, and the location is great. I was blessed with amazing weather whilst I was there and was able to utilize all spaces. Thanks for a perfect little getaway Audrey!

    Christine2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Audrey's place is a MUST DO when heading to Mt Dandenong. It was the perfect location and only a short walk into the Olinda township and cuckoo restaurant too. Audrey made personal little touches that made this stay the most memorable stay I have ever had. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone.

    Chris2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • I’d say my best air bnb stay! Everything was perfect. Would definitely be back. Such an unique stay! You wouldn’t wanna miss this.

    Lelanga2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I had a great stay at Poppy’s Caravan. There were some lovely touches on arrival for my girlfriend’s birthday. The weather was really good so we were able to make use of the day bed in the sun and relax. The spa was perfect later on. Would definitely recommend to anyone who’s looking for a relaxing weekend away. Thanks!

    Jasmine2020-01-27T00:00:00Z

    Jessica2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • The second we walked through the front door of Troy’s place we felt really comfortable. This place has a really nice vibe and is full of character. The space is uniquely decorated and the plants throughout add that little extra touch. The backyard and patio area are the perfect space to fire up the BBQ and enjoy the afternoon. We loved our short stay here and would definitely stay again.

    Mel2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing home stay surrounded by nature. The garden is breathtaking, with native plants and introduced species harmoniously arranged. Within the house is everything needed for a pleasant, invigorating experience. Very stylish decor. There are dozens of amenities installed, all thoughtfully included. Clean and cosy, I highly recommend visiting. Be aware the land is steep, with many steps, though this actually added to it's uniqueness. Five stars.

    Miki2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house in a magical setting. Lovely, relaxing outdoor area with a brilliant outlook.

    Shiry2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Host response fast, stay suitable for those who like to surround with a lot of trees and plants, feel comfortable and warm in the morning when sunshine come in but if got big luggage bag need to carry up few steps of staircase, others than this, everything’s GOOD .

    The Basin, VIC, Australia

    Quiet, private bungalow set in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges trees. Wake to the sounds of parrots, cockatoos and kookaburras in the bush. Our charming guest house includes bedroom, bathroom, breakfast amenities and outside courtyard. Within easy reach of bus and rail stops and the restaurants, cafes and bars of the mainstreet of Belgrave. Suitable for singles or couples. People from all backgrounds are welcome but please, no smoking and no pets. Please note that the driveway is quite steep.
    Surrounded by lush bushlands and slightly elevated to take in the gorgeous vistas and the very best of the Dandenong Ranges. Coronavirus I would like to assure my guests that I take the virus transmission very seriously. The bungalow is away from the house and I clean with a disinfectant. Particularly surfaces including door handles etc...even curtains. Since the bungalow is separated from the house and its self check in you’re unlikely to come into contact with masses of people here, it would just be public places that you may visit. Many times I hardly see my guests at all. Probably a very good place for social distancing or isolating!
    The Bakery Bungalow is just a couple of hundred meters from the beautiful Sherbrook Forest. There are many walks through the forest, the chance to see a lyrebird, wallabies or waterfall among the huge gum trees. The famous Puffing Billy Steam Train is close by (a 2 minute drive) in Belgrave and the 1000 steps walk in the Dandenong Ranges National Forest is about 2 kms away. You can also take a 5 minute walk through the forest to arrive in the car park of the McCawber Tavern, home of great meals, a wide variety of beers and excellent live music. Both Belgrave and Upwey main streets have a wide variety of bars, cafes and restaurants to enjoy.
  • Sparkling clean Bungalow.

    Anna2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Small place, nice and clean with a wonderfully warm bed! Nice and simple and perfect for a wedding getaway in the area. It’s a bit hard to find at first (and to work out where to park) but otherwise easy once you’ve found somewhere. Close to sherbrooke falls which is really nice. Brian was friendly and flexible with check in times. Thanks!

    Sabine2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nice location

    Terrance2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is perfect for spending some time sorrounded by nature. The bungalow has everything needed, it's extremely cozy and the view is STUNNING! Big thanks to Brian, who was an amazing host and friendly. He even offered us to take us to the train station as we went there by walking (yes, the bungalow is 25 minutes uphill but nothing terrible). Enjoy!

    Fernanda2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Brian’s place was nice and cozy surrounded by the beautiful forest in Tecoma. I had a very comfortable stay and I had everything I needed. Check in was easy and Brian has great communication.

Netflix, Stan, Foxtel and Telstra TV for your enjoyment. Spacious part of the house, and very private. Off street parking. Suitable for couples and families.
    Spacious part of the house, cathedral ceilings and radiating beams on ceilings, unique residence with lots of heating options and so very close to everything in Olinda. Quality new beds, quality bed linen and towels, locally made toiletries and ample breakfast and day time snacks supplied. Netflix, Stan, Foxtel, USB full of movies and Telstra TV available. Fresh flowers in season from the garden.
    Quiet and relaxing. Surrounded by pristine gardens, bush land and still close to everything. IGA is 500mt from here, as is Pellegrino's Fresh Grocer, and Organic Fanatic Food Store. Cafes, Restaurants Galore, Sassafras Lolly Shop and Geppeto's Toy Shop all easy walking distance from Holly Cottage.
  • We were travelling with two little toddlers and everyone loved the place. The rooms are clean, beds super comfortable. A lot of toys and space for the little ones. Jasna left us a lot of food and fruit, tea and coffee. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again some time soon!

    Amy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Jasna’s place is in the heart of Olinda, just a few minutes walk from cafes and shops. You won’t need to go out for breakfast though, the spread Jasna provides is amazing. The gate. Is stunning and the house clean and full of character. We played lots of pool and enjoyed sitting in the garden.

    Nicole2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Thoroughly recommended. Very comfortable and close to everything. Great hospitality.

    Felicity2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Jasna’s cottage was a fantastic place to stay for a relaxing weekend away. Her garden is just fantastic - full of flowers, greenery, and even bee hives & a chicken coop! It was so lovely. Jasna goes that extra mile and provides breakfast and snacks for guests which is just lovely, you really don’t need to step out as the house has everything! And the beds & pillows were so comfy - I haven’t NOT had a sore neck in so long! Thank you Jasna for your hospitality.

    Amanda2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Holly Cottage is a sensational home with everything you need. Each bedroom is as well appointed as the others so a group can comfortably stay. The place was sparkling clean, fitted with everything you need and Jasna provided us a generous provision of local produce for breakfast. Although it says no cooking facilities there were alternatives galore - two electric frypans, microwave, coffee machine. We didn’t lack for a thing. Historical Olinda starts right next door with beautiful churches, buildings and gardens. Jasna is a thoughtful host - You will be impressed.!

    Berlinda2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • 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 :)

    Emma2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Situated 200 meters away from Belgrave's top attraction-puffing billy, and set amid stately trees and terraced Edna Walling gardens at the end of a long, winding driveway, this cottage will provide you with a true getaway. Home to artists, writer(Paul Jennings' previous home), this is one of the most charming and unique property that you will experience. It’s perfect for couples, small families with kid, or solo adventurers. Just switch off and immerse yourself in the beautiful tranquility.
    This unique cottage is part of Belgrave's most distinctive property-Wanawong. The cottage consists of a cosy bedroom and large living/kitchen/meals open-plan area with fireplace. A large terrace with outdoor table, garden bench and a lounger is sun-drenched, perfect for morning and afternoon tea.
    Wannawong is hidden from public view yet is a short stroll from shops, cafes, and a direct train service to Melbourne. Puffing billy station is only 5 mins walk. Our favourite cafe is Earthly Pleasure, yet there are multiple along the Belgrave shopping strip.
  • Beautiful property! Heaven on earth

    Genevieve2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Li's cottage is a beautiful little spot so close to the Dandenong ranges, it's got a private but spacious garden that we had a lovely time relaxing in. Can definitely reccomend this as a cute place to stay when visiting the ranges

    Mitchell2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place! We were blown away by the private garden and the cottage. Comfortable stay at a great value. Would definitely recommend to others and book again if the occasion comes up.

    XinXin2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • A comfortable indoor space with beautiful outdoor eating setting. Exploration of the garden was a Belgrave attraction in itself. We were on foot with a toddler and still made it up the hill from the station - well worth it!

    Jessica2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The location of Li's cottage is brilliant. Roughly a five minute walk to town. The cottage had everything we needed and was comfortable. The garden is like a forest so the view is amazing.

    Quaint separate two room bungalow under main house with private access, in the perfect location for site seeing! It would suit a couple or small family. The main bedroom has a queen bed, wall mounted flat screen TV and comfortable, easily converted, sofa bed. The living space has a table and chairs, second sofa bed and mini fridge with tea, coffee, milk, fruit and cereal provided. The bathroom adjoins the living area - toiletries and hair dryer provided.
    There are walking trails from the doorstep - take advantage of your hosts local knowledge as you step out to explore the neighbourhood - perhaps a leisurely stroll along the creek to the park and lake or up the valley to the 'Puffing Billy' line and famous wooden bridge.
  • Clean, comfortable space to base yourself while exploring the Dandenongs. My husband, two year old son and I had a lovely stay.

    Lauren2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

    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

    Close to Puffing Billy, Trees adventure and wedding venues, "the Gables" is the perfect place to stay with your family or friends. Looking over 3 acres of gardens from the verandah of the upstairs guest suite you can watch rosellas cockatoos and kookaburras. The home is 125 years old and was one of the first homes built in Belgrave. Enjoy an open fire in the library after a nice walk through the national park right next door. Cafes, bars and restaurants are all close by.
    Your own private entrance takes you to the upstairs floor of our 125 year old home. It has four bedrooms, two king size, one queen and a single, a bathroom with a large spa, the massage room and the library and verandah.
    The Gables is walking distance ( if you're keen) to Puffing Billy, Trees Adventure, Cameo cinema, cafes, bars and train station. The national park is right next door. A short drive away is William Rickets sculpture park, Nicholas Gardens, Tesselars ( known for the tulip festival every spring) and other beautiful gardens and walks.
  • Thank you for your hospitality Sally! It was such a beautiful venue to take Brian & I's wedding photos at. I hope we weren't too noisy nor bothered you. Tried to remind the other guests to keep it at a minimum. Honestly, the food you provided for breakfast and snacks were a winner. Not every host provides this type of service. The guests, make up artist and hair stylist raved how beautiful and big the place was. The bedrooms, decors, hospitality, ace! Thank you x

It was a pleasure to sit with family on the wide veranda and look out to surrounding trees and gardens. Our overseas visitor was delighted with the wildlife, such as kookaburras, and rosellas. Sally is a welcoming host who made sure we had everything to make our stay comfortable - food, games [for children/family] bathroom luxuries. A place we would visit again!

    A fully renovated cottage set on an acre of terraced Edna Walling gardens located only 5 minutes walk to the historical Belgrave town centre. It is a perfect destination for a small family or a couple who want to either explore Dandenong ranges or just a weekend getaway. The living space seamlessly merges into the surrounding trees through 5 large windows.
    This garage-converted studio boasts 50 square meters of open plan living with all the modern comfort including a large 55" LED TV, a comfortable 3 seater sofa and a freestanding bathtub. As the cottage is surrounded by trees and no strong sunshine so it is very cool in summer. We do have a powerful radiator heater and one fan heater for cold nights or during winter, although one is plenty enough. We are looking at having a air conditioner installed very soon. Please check with us if this is a concern for you.
    The suite is located 5 mins walking distance to Belgrave Township and Puffing Billy railway and just a short drive from the gorgeous towns of Sassafras, Olinda, and Mt. Dandenong. Earthly pleasure, our favourite local cafe, is also within 5 mins walking distance.

  • Fantastic location and generous amenities. View from studio apartment is spectacular. Libby is a very thoughtful and attentive host who provided the best range of foods we’ve experienced in any Airbnb so far, including gluten free and dairy free options. Would highly recommend Libby’s Airbnb.

    Helen2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I absolutely loved our stay at Libby's place. Check in process was seamless and the space itself was breathtaking. Would highly recommend staying here if you're after a secluded and romantic getaway.

    Benedict2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • My partner & I are always finding unique places to stay for our anniversary weekend, Libby’s place was perfect! We felt at home & was beyond relaxed in the super comfortable bed & amazing view. Libby was so easy to communicate with & on the day of our check in she showed us through the room, gave us great tips about different places & in general had a great chat. The room was super clean, so was the kitchen & bathroom. All the little touches were amazing as well. Libby has created a wonderful space that you truly don’t want to leave as it’s that comfortable. I would recommend people to stay as you will love every second of it! It’s a home away from home.

    Julia2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Mudit2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • A huge thank you to Libby and Simon for hosting us. A stunning studio property in an even more stunning location. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our only complaint is that we did not book to stay longer!

    Kahli2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a magnificent space that seems to float in trees. A stylish and generous space full of Libby’s thoughtful touches. Libby is a lovely being as well. Do yourself a favor and stay there for a while.

    Nancy2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome spot handy to great local eateries and services. We caught the train into Melbourne for the day - $9return and the station is 5mins away. Great private space with a comfy bed and amazingly well stocked kitchen with snacks and goodys.

    Recharge by the open fireplace of this beautiful cabin, sequestered in the Jacky Winter Gardens. Rustic on the outside, modern on the inside, this serene space inspires relaxation in proximity to wild nature, far from the stresses of daily life.
    Designed by interior architects Hearth Studio, Jacky Winter Gardens brings together the calming waters of Clematis Creek, the rich soil of the gardens, the pure air of the Dandenong Ranges and every modern convenience you can imagine to give you a wholly satisfying holiday experience. Our mission is to offer private and secluded luxury accommodation for visitors to the hills, including singles, couples and small groups, as well as showcase the work of our artists and incorporate it into the day-to-day life of the house. Through our monthly artist-in-residence program we also support other commercial artists working in any discipline. We’ve feathered our nest with work from some of The Jacky Winter Group’s world-renowned stable of artists. From custom-made glasswork and wallpaper, to games and framed prints, you’ll become acquainted with new artists, or perhaps be reunited with some you already know. The beautiful Clematis Creek meanders along the bottom of the gardens, and its cheerful burbling is the aural backdrop to your stay. If you want to get closer to the water there is easy and safe access down to the creekbank, which makes it the ideal spot for meditation or private reflection. Located just 45-minutes from Melbourne by car, and situated within walking distance to the town centre with its wonderful Cameo Cinemas, Jacky Winter Gardens straddles the two worlds of nature and civilisation, achieving a perfect holiday balance for solo travellers, couples and small groups. You can find more information and photos of the property online at our dedicated property site which isn't difficult to find ;)
    The house is a luxury creative retreat set amidst a half-acre of stunning flora, a creek, and natural bushland. The wild yet tranquil beauty of the Dandenong Ranges has attracted artists to the area for more than a century.
  • This place is one of a kind. It’s fantastic and is my benchmark going forward for all Airbnb Plus places. I love this place and will definitely come again.

    Kevin2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Loved the house and everything in it. It was so well curated and made us feel like we were staying in a very special, almost surreal place. The gardens were also amazing considering just how close we were to Melbourne. Jeremy and Lorelei were great hosts! Would definitely recommend.

    Jordan2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is all we hoped it would be and then some—it’s a great place to unwind while still in proximity to some of the best this region has to offer. The gardens are beautiful, all you want to do is find a nice shady corner and read or nap. So, that’s what we did. The house is nice and cool and has a relaxing yet stylish feel. It’s the kind of place that you don’t want to leave....

    Jacqueline2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place was absolutely wonderful! It is such a sanctuary to get away from the fast pace of life! Our dog loved the serenity aswell!

    Jessica2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place to stay for a relaxing getaway. I will definitely be returning!

    Natasha2019-12-20T00:00:00Z

    Lovely sunlit room with sliding door private access. Situated directly opposite Sherbrooke Forest where you will spy lyrebirds and wallabies. My place is located on the doorstep of the Dandenongs. Sassafras, Olinda and Mt Dandenong are minutes away in one direction, Belgrave the other. The room is very private and you will enjoy everything the house offers - sunset views from the deck, full use of the contemporary kitchen, lounge and dining areas. I can be as interactive or removed as you wish
    PLEASE NOTE: I have another Airbnb accommodation on the property - a separate bungalow to the house. There may be one or two other guests staying. Make yourself at home in the shared spaces of the house. The back patio deck looks down upon a tree filled valley and faces south west for some spectacular sunsets. The lounge has a smart tv and speakers - chill out to Netflix or Spotify. The kitchen comes well equipped with all modern appliances and kitchenware. Enjoy a long soak in the bath with candles and wine.
    The neighbourhood is peaceful, quiet and very private. You will be close to everything the Dandenongs has to offer - bush walks, scenic drives, the Rhododendron Gardens, native animals and birds and even good coffee!
  • We loved staying at Robin's place. The view is just beautiful, surrounded by trees with many bird species that come and visit the balcony. Robin is a very warm and relaxed host, we felt totally welcome. Also the place is just next to the national park, which has some nice walks. A perfect getaway.

    Kat2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • What a fantastic location and host!

    Adam2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great hospitality & recommendations, would deffo recommend staying here :) lots of nature around!

    Lehel2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • If you have the chance to stay with Robin, do so. Not only is the house beautiful and very well located, but Robin herself is the type of warm, smart, kind-hearted people you don't come across often. The cat, Ginger, is a diva and will pose for you to take pictures of him (if he's in the mood, you know how divas are). We only stayed for one night, but the bed was one of the comfiest I'd ever slept in. The house is clean and incredibly well decorated, it's at walking distance of the Sherbrooke Falls and of the 1000 steps if you're willing to walk a bit further. All in all, a great decision.

    Samantha2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Enjoyable night away with a fabulous view. Loved Robin home, both stylish and comfy. It was like being in the bush with all the creature comforts. Robin was great, friendly and very accommodating. Thanks Robin

    Wendy2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Robin shares her lovely home that is set amongst the towering gum trees, and is clean, comfortable and welcoming. Robin will make every effort to ensure that you stay is unpressured and comfortable.

    Graeme2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house with a lovely private landing. Great decor and everything you need for a great stay. Parking is one the street but was fine for our needs. Close to a range of places to eat and lots of things to do. Well recommended.

    Klara2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    Clarence2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, great setting, and the hosting was like most airbnbs used to be - personal, gracious, sensitive to just the right amount of interaction, helpful and thoughtful. If coming by train I would make sure Darren is available to do the first shuttle from the station - it would be a serious uphill schlep with luggage and finding the way could be confusing the first time.

    Heidi2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Darren's place was a great little find. The room at the top of the stairs was stylishly equipped with lots of thoughtful touches including some tasteful antiques. There were scenic views from the windows which let in a gentle cooling breeze. The only drawback was the tricky parking on the road but this is typical of this area and Darren provided excellent instructions. Highly recommended.

Set on an acre property (our home) with gardens to wander and explore, the studio is a place to relax and retreat, or a base to explore the magic of the hills.

    Selby is a beautiful, family friendly neighbourhood. While we are surrounded by friendly neighbours, the set out of our property is that you feel quite apart from it all. There are lots of little walks you can do that are walking distance from the house (we'll include these in an info pack upon your arrival) as well as other walks and adventures you can do in and around the hills.

    Coen2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Anna's studio is the perfect couples getaway! We enjoyed a week of peace, fresh air, good food and quirky people up in the hills. Also having a hotplate to cook a simple meal is nice for breakfast in bed on a lazy day. Thank you for the lovely stay!

    Shaula2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying at Anna’s stylish but rustic studio. Gorgeous walks nearby and not far from the station in Belgrave. Highly recommend it if you need some time out of the city!

    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.

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.

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.

    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 really enjoyed our stay at the Art House! The place was immaculate, clean and tidy and we were impressed with the décor & interior design. It had all the kitchen essentials necessary and hot running water. Although it might have been good to have a portable stove or little BBQ outside, as well as an exhaust fan in the bathroom due to the smoke alarm right outside that went off. :) But overall it was amazing and Janelle was very quick and easy to communicate with! Would definitely recommend it to friends! Thanks a lot!!

    Keli2020-03-17T00:00:00Z

    Have your own unique tiny home experience in this converted shipping container with large decking and outdoor day bed. Located in the foothills of the Dandenong ranges, it’s close to many tourist attractions including puffing billy. The container is on a 6.5 acre farm that houses an array of friendly farm animals. This site is shared with the owners dwelling but you will still get the spacious feel as the 2 dwellings are set apart.
    Part bush property with an abundance of local wildlife. If you’re quiet you might even see some of the resident wallabies. The shipping container is slightly elevated at the top of the 6.5 acre property, on the edge of the forest with decking overlooking a small dam.
    5 min drive from Emerald Township and Emerald Lake Park. Just a short drive to many local wedding venues, Cardinia Reservoir Park, Lysterfield Lake, Auravale Lake, Sherbrooke Forest and Dandenong Ranges National Park. There are many local restaurants and bars in the Belgrave15min, Emerald 5min, Gembrook (20min) areas.
  • Wow, for such crazy times in the world Kathleen’s tiny house was an absolutely amazing escape from reality. The deck overlooking an awesome view including all the super friendly animals we felt so cosy having a wine around the fire pit and enjoying exactly where we were at the time. Will 100% stay again. Already looking forward to another cuddle with the goats :)

  • This airbnb is truely incredible! The space is very stylish, clean and equipped with everything you need. The owner provided a number of special touches and really makes you feel welcomed. Could not recommend this place enough, especially for couples looking for a getaway!

    Caitlan2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Little Violet was wonderful - close enough for a weekend getaway yet feels a world away. Charmaine has created a stylish haven with beautiful decor and thoughtful touches. Her cakes/food were to die for ! We ended up cancelling some dinner plans for nye because all we wanted to do was spend the night in the beautiful cottage/read/play games and eat all the yummy food ! Resident cat (Kiwi) was another adorable addition to this wonderful property. Wandering in the garden ( with its own wisteria arch ! ) and having breakfast amongst the trees and birds was magical ! First Airbnb experience was fabulous !

    Elle & Hakan2018-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • What an adorable little place my husband and I needed a relaxing weekend and boy oh boy what a wonderful place this was for just that. Charmaine you have created a gorgeous cottage and your personal touches were spot on our welcome platter and bottle of wine on arrival was very much appreciated, breakfast was outstanding and the little treats were amazing, as suggested by you I took home the delicious cookies and brownies for my grandson and he loved them Thank you so much for your hospitality and privacy we will definitely be back 5out of 5 is not enough to measure this perfection of what you have created

    Sharon2017-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Little Violet was one of our best Airbnb experiences yet! Our host, Charmaine, was there on arrival to welcome us and took us on a quick tour. The studio is tastefully decorated and perfectly clean. You could tell a lot of thought had gone into the look and feel of the space; with beautiful furs on the couches, colourful wallpapers and interesting hard cover books laid out on coffee tables. The property is tucked away in the quiet back streets of Tecoma amongst tall trees and lush greenery. The amount of food that was provided for our breakfast was quite daunting! It was all labeled with little notes explaining the origin of the produce which was a really special touch. Charmaine is also a pastry chef and on top of all the biscuits and cakes she had hidden around the house for us, she also left a phenomenal tasting Portugese tart by our door in the morning adorned with a cute handwritten note. Overall, we couldn’t have asked for much more for a quick night away from the city. A beautiful relaxing place to unwind, well situated within the Dandenong Ranges; complimented by the lovely Charmaine and all the little touches she added to make our stay special. Highly recommended and we will be back!

    Taylor2017-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • The Little Violet is everything you could expect from a cabin getaway! You will be spoiled rotten as Charmaine takes you through a mini culinary adventure, showing off her baking skills as she spoils you with baked treats and organic ingredients for breakfast!

    Jed2017-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Little Violet has been the most beautiful and relaxing experience for us, exceeding all expectations. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Charmaine, the friendliest and warmest host you could wish for. She had organised a gorgeous cheese and meat platter for us, along with a heap of homemade goodies (goats cheese and tomato tarts, cheesecake and apple cake, Lindt peanut butter cookies, a bottle of Shiraz and sherry), along with a huge gourmet breakfast platter. All ingredients were locally sourced and picked with utmost care. The cottage itself was extremely well designed and cozy, all rooms had plenty of light and you could enjoy the view of the mountains from the front porch. Extremely well maintained and had everything we required for the nights. Beautiful touches such as the many candles placed around the cottage to set a romantic scene, along with popcorn to enjoy while watching TV. Location was also fantastic, being right around the corner from Belgrave and a five minute drive to Sassafras, the scenery was incredible. Most importantly of all, Charmaime made us feel extremely special and spoilt. She was very attentive to all our needs and thought of everything we could possibly want being away. Lots of helpful notes around the house guiding us to make the most of our stay. We did not even leave the cottage for dinner as Charmaine had prepared us so much food, we wanted to sample everything she had to offer. If anyone is after an unforgettable trip away, I highly recommend staying at Little Violet. Had we had more time, I would prefer to stay a few nights longer. This had been the ultimate getaway which has renewed us and I cannot thank Charmaine enough for her gracious hospitality. It is evident that she loves what she does,

    Dorothy2017-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • We were lucky enough to meet Charmaine on arrival who took us through the beautifully decorated cottage. We were greated with an array of tasty treats such as cookies brownies cake and a cheese board. Also a beautiful selection was available for breakfast. Couldn't have recommended this venue more than enough. Thank you very much for the 5 star treatment.

    Sarah2018-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • An excellent accommodation located within 10 minutes drive to Puffing Billy. Calvin and Judy keep their place clean for the comfort of the guest. Though the shared kitchen and laundry facilities are located at the host’s side of the house, Calvin and Judy were hospitable to offer the access to these facilities at their side of the house upon request. Calvin and Judy filled the accommodation for their guest with books, including children’s colouring books, movie CDs and game consoles (Wii, I remember I saw Sony Play Station too). Apart from local maps and attraction brochures, Calvin and Judy even compiled a folio of the 31 (if my memory still works perfectly) trails with respective distant and time required to complete the walk. These books, CDs and trails make the place great for family escapade to spend a few days in a tranquil environment.

  • The landlord was a Thai couple, very kind and enthusiastic. Before we arrived at their home, we sent a message asking where we were and if we needed help. When we arrived at their home, they saw us in the door and held their hands. Take some things, come here to help immediately, and tell us if you need anything, you can tell them, great landlord, will go again next time!

  • Comfortable bed, linen and all spotlessly clean. Bigger space than expected. Huge spa bath, a pretty and private outlook from the sitting room. Each room has a door for extra privacy and warmth. Highly recommended.
