“Wonderful”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

My husband and I stayed in the Treehouse (cabin 4) this Easter. We had an amazing time and were very impressed with DULC.

The cabins are well furnished with good quality furnishings, stainless steel appliances, good coffee machine etc. There is a great choice of DVD's and good heating system.

The cabins are in a great location, just a 5 minute drive from the centre of Halls Gap but rural enough to be in an extremely relaxing and peaceful setting. We even had a couple of locals visit (friendly wallabies).

The spa was a nice touch and we were able to cook all our meals in the cabin very easily. Whilst there is no oven there is a good BBQ and two-burner cook top, microwave and all the cutlery etc that you will need.

The view from the cabin is great and we loved the big windows in the upstairs bedroom enabling us to sleep under the stars.

I really cannot fault this place and would definitely recommend it to others.

We loved the cabin, it was number 5. They are decorated beautifully, clean+++, comfortable bed and quality linen and towels. Everything you need is in the cabins and we loved the clean bbq (they are hard to come by).We felt so relaxed in our cabin , truly stunning both inside and out.
If you want to get away and relax this cabin is it! The view of the bush through the huge windows and rooftop and then at night looking up at the stars is breathtaking.
Thank you Pru and Simon for a wonderful stay , we will be back!!

My goodness, if you are going to stay anywhere in the Grampians it must be DULC. Where do I start? Surrounded by bush it fits well into the environment but with all the creature comforts. These ultra funky cabins have obviously been well designed by very clever architects and the decor has been tastefully chosen. Perfect in every way and didn't want to leave. Have stayed in lots of accommodation around Australia and I found this great value for money. Thanks Pru & Simon for allowing us to share your piece of paradise. We'll be back for the food & wind festival in may!!! X

What a fantastic place we loved it and just wanted to stay longer. Loved the window seat and the fact that it was spacious and spotlessly clean. Really tranquil setting. True it is off the beaten track a little but we shopped before we got there. However there are adequate shops in the little village and a couple of places to eat out if you prefer.

Room Tip: Spend a little more and go for the tree house - real treat especially at end of your holiday you wil...

We stayed at Cabin 2 for 3 nights in February.
My wife has something of a phobia when it comes to creepy crawlies and so it was unfortunate that ants had found their way in to the kitchen area. Also, beetles dropped off the ceiling on to the bed during the nights - much to my wife's horror!
On reporting this to the owner at checkout, he advised that the exterminator was due the following week to deal with the ants and that he would be asked to deal with the beetles too.
We feel that as there was a known problem, we should at least have been told on arrival and possibly offered alternative accommodation.
Also, the chopping board in the kitchen smelled and there was only one smelly well worn tea towel. Consideration should be given to replacing the chopping board and supplying 2 (or more) tea towels.
Our stay could have been so much better, the cabin was well appointed and the owners are a lovely young couple. We do hope they solve the insect issues and make a real go of it.

aprilandjune, Owner at DULC Cabins, responded to this review, 27 March 2012
We are very sorry you did not enjoy your stay here at DULC Cabins in February.

I would advise future visitors that have a phobia for insects to understand that being in the Grampians national park in a bushland setting, you are going to encounter these insects as it is just part of our natural enviroment which we live with every day and what makes our enviroment so beautiful.

As part of our maintance program each of the cabins is sprayed quarterly so as to hopefully avoid these insects. flies, mosquitos, ants, etc getting into the cabin, but as our property is set in bushland in a national park we cannot always guarantee that no insects will get into a cabin throughout a guests stay with us.

Management was never notified that there was a problem by these guests until checkout, at which time they mentioned his wife had a phobia of insects. If we had known there was any problems we would have tried to resolve the problem immediately or happily found them alternative accommodation, because we want the guest to have an enjoyable experience.

We spent a wonderful week touring Victoria with our most enjoyable stop and favourite accommodation at DULC in Halls Gap. The seclusion provided ample relaxation before our return to Melbourne and the lovely well appointed cabins were an absolute delight. We could self cater and BBQ on the balcony or head into town for a feed. There is plenty of space to lounge, read current magazines or doze on day beds gazing out the enormous windows which frame the bushland and the night sky perfectly!

The cabins are about 3km out of town. The impression that you can sit on your deck amongst kangaroos is simply not true - the only wildlife we saw from our cabin (the tree house) was trees. Whilst the tree house was clean and smelling of polish, part of the ground floor was cement, perfect if your trying to achieve industrial chic! Rooms are not serviced and when we went to check out, there was nobody at reception.

On the one hand, I feel bad about giving this a poor review as they appear to be a young couple trying to make a living. On the other hand this is very expensive for what you get.
