Reviewed yesterday NEW

This property provided everything we needed and more, including a nice relaxing stay. With plenty of modern art magazines, there was no shortage on reading material and being surrounded by nature was a beautiful scenic change. We sat, binged on food and enjoyed the heating system as the Autumn chill blew by outside.

A perfect spot to getaway for a break, beautifully decorated, without losing that comfy, put your feet up and relax feeling. Secluded and private, with ferny gardens to enjoy during the day and views of the city lights at night, the breakfast hamper was full of delicious local goodies and with the forest reflected in the splashback, the kitchen was...

Lovely cottage nestled amongst huge trees and ferns. Two bedrooms are large and very well decorated in modern muted tones. The downstairs bedroom has a modern ensuite with subway tiles and black fittings. Very clean and modern but there is no door between the ensuite (which has a shower and toilet), and the bedroom. Breakfast basket left for us at...

Thank you for your enthusiastic review of this very special Artist on Everest cottage. We love it, and you've captured all the things we think are lovely too.

Such a beautiful location, lovely restaurants nearby and gorgeous gardens to visit. The cottage had a magnificent view and such a peaceful location with everything you could need at hand.

Boyando is a beautifully presented property in tranquil surrounds. The view across Melbourne suburbs at night is special. Loved the gardens where there is plenty of space to enjoy. The house is well fitted out and clean inside. Just a great place to stay to relax which is just what we wanted. Definitely recommended.

The white gates cottage was exactly as promised. What made the stay more comfortable were all the little extras that had been paid attention. We loved the continental hamper and fresh bread... and brownies!! The bath was amazing and large with a view, and we were given body scrubs too.

I went away with my family for my 40th birthday and wanted to stay somewhere special, we definitely found it. What a gorgeous house in a fabulous location. Set in forest surrounds and walking distance to shops. Also loved the hamper of food, it saved us from rushing to the supermarket.

“All the cottages were a far distance from each other. Enough to give privacy, I might be biest as i have not experience the all the cottages however the Cottage in the Forest from my experience and reviews is by far a great choice.”
