The hosts make guests welcome from the first arrival and throughout the stay with their relaxed but well practices know how. This is not a place for kids or for anyone not wanting to soak up the hospitality and uniqueness of the place. Come prepared to enjoy and relax. Even Mickey the dog seems to know how good it is.
Starhaven is not your quaint bed and breakfast accommodation. From the point of arrival we knew we were on for a treat..the house opens up to two beautiful and expansive lounge rooms, large indoor spa, dedicated theatre room. delightful courtyard and equally enchanting pet dog This is a place to just hang out and relax for a couple of days or explore the surrounding townships. Our bedroom was smallish but well appointed however we had access to our own balcony overlooking the bay which was such a bonus. We thoroughly enjoyed the impeccable hospitality of our hosts and they truly run an amazing and beautifully designed property ...highly recommend
Now here is a place worth visiting. Think of a combination of hospitality, ambience, luxury, peace and quiet, and not to mention the bay views - that is what Starhaven is all about. Ian and Rob have done a wonderfull job to bring this together and make it a real destination experience. The house at Indented Head is not too far from all the major attractions of the Bellarine, so you can use it as a base for exploring the local area. The rooms are great and the house itself is a real feature for its design and fitout. The breakfast is excellent and Ian's cooked mushrooms are a standout - ask him for his secret recipe ..! Well done guys
Simply a delight from start to finish. We were so warmly welcomed by Ian and Rob ( and Mickey the dog) From the moment we arrived, they could not have done more to make our stay a memorable one. The Haven suite was luxurious, expansive and pure relaxation. After the steam room, the infinity spa and a glass of red overlooking the ocean from our own private balcony, we soon forgot about the stresses of the weekly grind. As it was a long weekend, we were having difficulty finding a winery venue for lunch. Ian to the rescue. And within minutes, had a booking for us. Breakfast was scrumptious and the conversation with both our hosts and other guests, was a great start to the morning ( you MUST have the mushrooms) Evenings were spent in the magnificence of their starlit movie cinema, in our recliner chairs. Unbelievably, they have their own Gold Class What a wonderful place !! We will definitely return. Joseph & Helen…
Interesting when you drive into a small housing Estate and park in front of what looks like a house. A house it is but what a house. From the moment you arrive Rob and Ian treat you as part of the family. Rooms are great. Little cinema with pop corn and ice cream, small bar, huge roof terrace with fabulous views accross the bay. Balconies everwhere and lounge sitting areas. Also had massages and the 2 ladies we had were great, actually best deep tissue massage i had ever had. Very good position to have a trip to Port Arlington and Queenscliff. We had lunch at jack rabbit Winery which was excellent. Also just a kilometre from Port Arlington golf club, which also has good food. Highly recommend and we will definately be back as there is plenty to see on the Bellarine.
