We stayed at Arnica Views for our anniversary. Ee drove up the majestic Dandenong's and arrived at the top of the hills to a simple bit of paradise and suddenly reality was a million miles away. We were greeted by Tania a welcoming, gracious and most helpful host. She guided us to the Coorabell cottage and when we walked through the door you could not help but feel special as if we were the only people in the hills. The old cottage which is now modern, clean and comfortable was the perfect way to spend our special evening together. We were greeted by music to set the mood, candles, port, chocolate and a spa to help soak the troubles of life away. We had a free limo ride to Sky High however there was a fully functional kitchen and we were given provisions for breakfast. I am gluten intolerant and Tania was most helpful to accommodate my needs. Often in life we do not spend enough time enjoying the simple things in life. Thankyou Arnica Views for allowing us to do this!
