“Great For Couples To”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

This property needs no further reviews, my husband and i can only endorse the fantastic comments already made. We had a short 2 night break at the beginning of January, spending two nights in Melbourne and then wanting to spend a couple of nights in the Yarra Valley.
Sanctuary Park is absolutely perfect to visit the many wineries and idyllic to return to in the evening to relax and enjoy your purchases! Wendy & Alex your host's go that extra mile to make your stay perfect. Their attention to detail is second to none but managing to balance being there
for your every need but without being intrusive.
Their local knowledge and contacts are well worth taking advantage of and made our short stay
seem much longer, because of what we were able to source by taking their advice.
Just wanted to say, if your a couple looking for somewhere to stay don't be put off by the attraction for families, the grounds and cottages are so well placed and thought out theres room for everyone to escape. A truly wonderful resort.

We stayed for 4 nights as part of a big family holiday, and lived the place. The cottages are spacious and very well equipped, and the grounds just magnificent. Favourite memory is sitting on a rug with nibbles and wine, looking down on the lake, while the kids enjoyed cricket after a swim. Highly recommended. Oh, and must thank our lovely hosts, too!

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).
