Sanctuary Park Cottages
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 February 2014

This place is wonderful. The last time we stayed was about 14 years ago, and it's so lovely to see the fruition of all the planting that was done. A great location, around the corner from the Healesville Sanctuary. Our family enjoyed the pool, walks around the lake, and the spaciousness of the rustic cottage. The bathroom was very spacious! The cottage was super clean, and our family loved the artworks in the rooms, so much so, we ordered a print!
The dvd collection was a bit of a treat for the kids (we don't watch that many movies).
I would heartily recommend this accommodation.

Stop looking and stay here. The cottages are well positioned in lovely grounds and the owners are very quick to respond to any issues you might have. Located just around the corner from the Healesville Sanctuary with a national park nearby this is a great spot. There are birds and rabbits everywhere and each cottage has a small private garden and porch. The owners will be only too happy to let you know what there is to do nearby. A lovely part of the world.

Room Tip: Choose from a variety of cottages depending on your needs, cottage 6 is just for couples and is at t...

We booked the 3 bedroom cottage for 3 nights. we wanted something close to Melbourne as it would have been easier to manage with two toddlers.
We werent expecting much, just a quick getaway over Boxing day. We were in for a treat though!!

The cottages were just lovely. very quiet and rustic. They were clean and had a great view of the lake and hills. It was fantastic to get up in the morning and have a steaming cuppa out on the porch.
Wendy the host was most gracious and helpful. All in all, a great getaway. we'll surely be back.

What a wonderful night away! Wendy is just gorgeous and the cottage was beautiful! We stayed with our young son and all three of us had a really lovely night away. The spa is such a treat and the views were so relaxing! The rooms are really spacious, comfortable and homely - there were even toys to play with in our sons room! We really look forward to coming back again soon.

Room Tip: Our cottage (birchwood) is right next to the kids playground - perfect for families!

We found Wendy to be extremely friendly and helpful with recommendations for Healesville dining options. The cottage was clean and neat. It was fun watching the rabbits and goats wander about the property. Only 2 issues: not enough blankets (no heating in the bedrooms and only one blanket/bed) and breakfast was very very basic (white bread and individual boxed cereal).

We just recently stayed at the cottages with our three young children. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing time away. We enjoyed seeing bunny rabbits in the evenings, ducks on the lake, goats. Plenty of space and privacy. We felt really spoilt there. Hosts are lovely and friendly. Don't hesitate, make a booking. You won't regret it.

Sanctuary Park Cottages are beautifully presented and are situated within large grounds ideal for kids. There is a lake with BBQ facilities, playground, swimming pool and lots of farm animals i.e. goats, chickens, sheep, etc to keep the kids entertained. The cottages are far enough apart to provide privacy but also close enough to allow groups to stay and play together. The hosts bent over backwards to keep us happy, doing those things that make a holiday stress-free, e.g lighting the fire ready for our arrival, organising airport transfers. The office has a large selection of DVDs and games free for you to borrow, and the cottages demonstrate a well thought out selection of appliances, utensils, etc. Healesville Sanctuary is next door, and it is a short drive into the lovely town of Healesville. Would highly recommend this place for families and groups looking for a break from the hustle and bustle.
