A great stay at Sabine's. Highly recommended.

Sabine has created a truly magical place! We loved simply sitting and watching the changing views of the hills and mountains and the mist rolling in on the Sunday morning. This little abode is clearly built with love and attention to detail and nestles in harmony with its beautiful surroundings. Thank you for having us we would love to come back!

We had a lovely stay at Sabine's property. Woke up to birds singing and frolicking about in the strawberry farm out back. We cooked our own meals in the fully equipped kitchen and drank coffee in the sunshine on the deck when the clouds cleared. The straw bale, mud house was delightfully warm in winter. There are heaters provided, but we only used the electric blankets to take the chill off. It's only a short drive into Healesville (which you could also definitely walk), so the house is well-positioned for exploring the region's cellar doors, or simply tucking yourself away for some quiet respite.

My partner and I spent the weekend in Sabine's lovely straw bale cottage. It was a great location - really private and tranquil, but also quite close to town. The building itself was incredible - warm, light, simple, with a great atmosphere. Sabine generously left us a basket of citrus grown on her own trees, and her partner gave us some hiking recommendations. We look forward to staying again!

Great stay, comfortable and roomy, quiet but not too far from town, a fun place to stay

Sabine's earth/mud/straw hut was the perfect little home away from home in the Yarra Valley. There were little thoughtful touches throughout the home. Staying in a one of a kind house was lovely all on its own, but then the view and the property it's on took it to another level. I would recommend this stay to anyone looking for somewhere in the Yarra Valley to stay.
