We could not have been more delighted! I booked the house for a long weekend catchup with 4 girlfriends & the house worked perfectly for all of us. The décor was lovely and the house offered us all we wanted. We were warm, very comfy and totally felt at home. I would very much like to return some time. Annie

A fantastic home to stay with friends in. 4 independent people lived here very happily for 1 week. It was welcoming, well equipped and charming in design. Plenty of space and the rooms were excellently presented. The owners have gone above and beyond to make the home a superbly welcoming home.

“Fantastic house for large group”
Reviewed 15 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at this house in Chilly July 2016 with a party of 8 - family and friends. Right from the start, the owners, Catherine and David were fantastic - regular emails with updates and even warnings about the weather and to bring warm clothes. When we got there the heating was on so the house was lovely and warm. Everything was supplied - fruit, eggs, bread, milk, juice etc. There were DVD's cd's, books, it was like a home away from home. Beautiful personal touches everywhere in the house, chocolates, mints, etc. We had three cars and all were able to be parked off street. The street/area was a bit shabby but there was absolutely not problems whatsoever and the house was lovely and immaculate. Would definitely stay here again.

Excellent value for money.

“We stepped back in time in this beautiful home- and wished we could have stayed longer!”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This home is full of beautiful furniture, centrally heated, with comfortable beds and every convenience!
The kitchen is like stepping into someone's home- equipped with everything we could need, including lots of extras in the fridge.
Both bathrooms were spacious and the lounge room a place to relax.
The home isin a great location, only minutes away the centre of Ballarat.
Groceries are just a block away as are many take away shops.
If we were visiting Ballarat we would definitely stay here again!

“THE ONLY PLACE TO STAY”
Reviewed 20 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Just returned from 3 nights in this amazing house, There is not one thing you need to bring only yourself, From fresh fruit , milk, bread and chocolates all supplied, the beds were so comfy, may be a little high if you are elderly, but our parents were happy to sleep in the single beds, and only 5 min to main st in. Ballarat this is the best accommodation we have, stayed in for years, the pictures are exactly what you get, Thanks Catherine & David for sharing this amazing house with us, we will definitely be back.
