If you’re looking for a place to “chill-out”...I mean relax and enjoy nature...this is it! My husband and I love this place!
We travel from Michigan USA to Victoria on an annual basis...18x so far! We have several good friends from Melbourne area to Brisbane to Wangaratta/Beechworth. Out of all the beautiful places we have stayed, Serengale Retreat is our favorite.
We live a busy life as most people do...and we felt a sense of relaxation as soon as we entered the “wildlife preserved” property. The long driveway adorned with beautiful gum trees, gorgeous birds, natural gardens and lovely fruit trees, set the stage for what we were going to find ahead.
I found this property on-line for location. Typically, what a person might find is the marketing and photos don’t necessarily match what you get! This did...and beyond!! (Shocking to me!) the interior is very tastefully done yet casual. Just beautiful!
I love to cook, bake and entertain. The kitchen, equipment and lay-out for guests was perfect for me. If you don’t cook, etc. you can hire a chef! What could be better?
Take a dip in the pool...watch the kangaroos grazing....run to Beechworth for the greatest baked goods? We love it all! Plus I might mention...the beds are great,: the showers are excellent and it’s spotless!
All about the property lived up to our expectations and more. It's perfect for a big family, but can work well with a group of friends. The house was lovely and warm. Everything was comfortable and clean, very detailed and appointed with everything you might need. It was quite hot during our stay, but pleasantly cool inside the house. Serena, the owner, was extremely lovely to deal with, very responsive and helpful, both before and during our stay. We hope to be back again!
Immaculate, tasteful, quality home. All beds super comfortable, no partner disturbance, hypoallergenic mattress. All rooms are quality, no short straws here. Kitchen utensils well supplied. Generous breakfast supplied for 1st morning. Excellent quality wine on arrival. Feeling truly rested having been well looked after thanks to generous owners, they have really thought through delivery of this property to guests. There's so much to do in the region with a short drive to Beechworth, Milawa or Wangaratta, highly recommend.
Wow, this property is incredible, and not just a place to stay but a home. We stayed in spring which means...wildflowers . My favourite thing was to pull all the blinds up in the main bedroom to stare at the endless stars before falling asleep and then waking up to the sounds of all of the birds. We had a rainy day but the house had all the supplies to cope with that. We are very active travellers so we were outdoors every sunny day and then came home to the glory of this space. We competed in a 50km run/ride event in the area so coming home to Serengale in the very early hours of the morning was a relief. Yes, there are bugs and flies - this is regional Australia so it comes with the territory. Amazing equipped (there’s even fresh supplies growing in the garden) in an incredible setting, Serengale feels like home. P.s. the wine
Another very relaxing experience. Beautifully presented. Nothing to worry about. Feels like a home away from home. Thank You
A Beautiful house with everything you need provided, all in excellent condition, great pool and outdoor area. Lovely hosts and great tasting wine, we will be back!!
This luxurious retreat is nestled in landscaped gardens amid a wildlife reserve. The house is large and open plan to accomodate families but also cosy with an open fire, sunny, fully equiped kitchen as well as indoor and outdoor entertaining areas.
Exceptional pieces or art work, provision of local produce along with the locally made wines provide an indulgent experience to awaken the senses. For those wishing to explore, the retreat is convenient to the town of Beechworth and the owners can advise on the many day trips and tourist attractions.
We will definitely be returning to this amazing retreat! Thanks for the hospitality.
