The space

Eclectic style meets a touch of the Mediterranean with beautiful gardens wrapping alfresco dining areas and hidden spaces to enjoy the serenity. The home itself is thoughtfully appointed, spacious and welcoming. Fully equipped for the weekend gourmet chef, the large renovated kitchen features gas cooking, dishwasher and plenty of bench space. Timber floors flow through this open plan area with dining for10 guests and a sitting nook adjacent. The separate living room with bean bags and wood fire creates the perfect evening ambience while a further reading room looks out to the lush gardens. Indoor living is rounded out with original, funky bathrooms and comfortable bedrooms.

The kids (and big kids alike) will love the separate purpose built gym/games room with so many activities to fill the days, and don't forget the games cupboard, filled to the brim with equipment for volleyball, cricket, and badminton to name but a few.

This property is a perfect year round retreat with sun dappled gardens and cool lawns through Summer, a cosy wood fire to snuggle beside in Winter. Spring time will host masses of blooms and the Autumn scenery will amaze. And should you choose to leave your home base, you'll find yourself amongst an array of award winning wineries and dining experiences, gourmet and fresh produce to die for, along with galleries and working artists' studios. Venture a little further to the pristine beaches of the Peninsula, world recognized golf courses, sailing, fishing, the list goes on...........and it's all on the doorstep of this magical holiday property!

House was great with everything as expected. Location was very handy to Red Hills attractions. Only negative being that after booking you then deal with a holiday rental agency, not Melodie which took away that personal air BnB touch.

This house was better than expected. The location was ideal as you are so close to great restaurants and wineries. When we got there we were all blown away with the garden, it was huge and full of citrus fruits, apples and it even had a very cute vegetable garden. The boys fall in love with the games room and gym, great set up. Melodie welcomed us with a lovely card, local apple pie (YUM!) and homemade quince and fig jams. Would recommend this place to everyone!

We arrived and we're thrilled with how place was set up. Each family had their own room. Beds were so big and comfy!! Kids straight out to games area and gardens, adults poured a glass of wine and everyone was relaxed so quickly! Location perfect, so close to wineries, Red Hill shops and things the area has to offer. Adults had a work out in the gym next day. Will definitely be back! Loved loved loved the place!!

What a great place for large families and big groups! The gardens and open space is to die for and beds are so comfortable! So much to do on the property that kids are heard but not seen!

We had a wonderful stay at the butterfly retreat. Great location next to a winery and Dromana beach. The house is even nicer than depicted in the photos with beautiful mature gardens. Everything we needed was there and more. We would highly recommend a stay at the Butterfly Retreat.
