My husband and I just spent 5 nights here for our wedding anniversary and couldn't be happier with the accommodation. The villa was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean and the bed was quite comfortable. The water feature/garden outside the spa was a beautiful touch and the kitchen was great. The owner John was great to deal with and it was...

Thanks for a faultless experience for our family weekend away. We stayed at the Melba Suite for a two night weekend in the Yarra Valley. Welcomed warmly by John who gave us a tour of the room and ensured we could work everything needed. It was also nice to be offered some suggestions for dinner nearby. Upon exploring the room,...

Thank you for your fulsome review. We appreciate your skepticism which is why we call our breakfast provisions 'generous', 'bountiful' or 'abundant' rather than 'gourmet' (we just can't get quails eggs around here and most guests don't want pate de foie gras for breakfast) however, we mean what we say and try to ensure guests have plenty of choices for...

“There are only 2 houses, both similar. The bathroom with the view to Japanese garden is an extra bonus. Good choice of in-room entertainment.”

“Stayed in the Yarra Suite which was perfect, however saw the Melba suite also which looked just as amazing and comfortable.”
 of 5 bubbles W1886OPlisac, 11 Jan 2015 | Read review
“The only thing to keep in mind is that it is quite close to the road so depending on the suite you go for, you may get more road noise. The Yarra suite appears to be closer to the road, especially the bedroom. Still got an excellent night's sleep regardless. Only noticed the noise in the morning, and that was a weekday.”
