“Rustic and Peaceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

We stayed at Sanctuary park Cottages recently for our daughters wedding which was being held at the Wildlife Sanctuary. We found the cottage we stayed in to be perfect for our needs - it was set in lovely quiet grounds, sufficiently removed from other cottages so that you wouldn't know they were there - it was quite spacious ( the bed in the main bedroom was massive!! ), the ambiance was definately australian rustic, and it contained everything you could possibly want - a veritable home away from home. We could recommend a stay here highly enough

Room Tip: Cannot possibly add much more except to say that our daughter and her new husband stayed in the thre...

Had a lovely stay with a larger group staying across four cottages. Very clean and enjoyed nice touches such as milk and butter in the fridge and breakfast supplies. Very comfortable and in a very pleasant setting. Would recommend.

We stayed in the lakeview cottage with our two girls aged 7 & 5. The cottage was spacious and clean, stocked up with bread butter and cereals. Our girls enjoyed feeding the goats and playing in the grounds. Healsville sanctuary & Hedgend maze just around the corner. Nice restaurants like Innocent bystander & white rabbit just 5 min drive away. Definitely recommend staying here.

This was one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed in. We celebrate my sisters wedding there and took over all the cottages. Our one had 3 bedrooms, plenty of room for the kids, plenty for them to do. Nice fresh eggs delivered in the mornings, plenty of advise and discounts for local venues, very welcoming and informative time with Wendy. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

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!
