It’s beautifully appointed, we thoroughly enjoyed the private location and the beautiful space the Michael and Laurel have created. Would not hesitate to recommend. Mike March 2018 Olivia’s is a secluded paradise but only 10 min drive from Healesville. We felt enveloped by nature and away from everything while there but was so easy to get to the local sites and wineries (of which there are many beautiful ones). The house itself is well set out and with plenty of space - there were 4 of us and felt very spacious. Great place for a get away and would gladly recommend and/or go there again. 1 tip - even if you are going in summer, bring a jumper - the house is surrounded by forest so even when it is 30+ C in Healesville, the house and grounds stay cool (but don’t worry that also means you can also have a roaring fire in summer!) Charlie Feb 2018 This place has to be the most majestic and picturesque hidden forest retreat only an hour from melb. My wife and i savoured every moment we spent there. Prior to arriving we had planned on exploring more of yarra valley but after falling in love with the cottage and forests we only went out for supplies and spent the whole time truly unwinding and enjoying the forest and surroundings of the cottage.. thank you for sharing your special place with us both Emma January 2018 You know when you find some accommodation online, the photo’s look great, and you can’t wait to stay there. When you arrive the place doesn’t really get looked after, it looks like it was something the owners inherited and are only running it for a bit of income on the side? Well Olivia's' in the Forest is the complete opposite of the above. If you think the photos are amazing, just wait until you get there. A huge dining table for the banquet you’ve just cooked up. The lounge has a large LCD tv and a small dvd collection (for those that just can’t drag themselves away from some sort of technology). The lounges are super comfortable and there is a huge range of books to read. An indoor fireplace with wood provided, and an outside fire pit for those nights you want to sit outdoors and enjoy the serenity with a cracking fire. My stay here was amazing and I just can’t wait to come back!More
