Our home is a huge double storey brick home on the side of Mount Macedon, in the heart of the Macedon Ranges, famed for its food and wine. We're just 45 mins from Melbourne, 10 mins to Hanging Rock and walking distance to wonderful wineries and fab local pub. A delight for cyclists and bushwalkers. We're a young couple who tree-changed from Coburg last year. We live with a dog and two rescue goats. Bec is a fantastic cook who can't wait to whip up her famous pancakes for breakfast for you. A perfect weekend getaway.

The space

We're on two secluded acres, right next to the state forest.
Our beautiful Labrador Zella is as friendly as can be, as are our two goats.
The only noises you'll hear are birds, and the occasional goat bleet. You're likely to see the kangaroos that tend to come on our property most nights, or even the local wombat if you're really lucky.
Kookaburras and rosellas abound along with ducks, magpies, cockatoos and other birdlife.

Guest access

You'll have access to your own room, of course, and bathroom, along with the library and sunken lounge room with television.
As there is one bathroom for two bedrooms we only book one room at any time (except when big local events are on), so you will have a private bathroom, unless you are traveling with friends in which case you can book both rooms.
You effectively have your own wing of the house, we jokingly call it The West Wing.

Interaction with guests

We'll get you settled and answer any questions, give you tips etc. Beyond that, you're welcome to interact as much or as little as you like.

If you stay for two or more nights we include breakfast. You can eat that in our dining room, the library, or outside at one of a number of outdoor tables around our two acres.

Other things to note

I speak basic Italian, Portuguese and a smattering of French and Spanish, so happily accommodate visitors from overseas.

If you are in town for a local wedding we can arrange transport for a fee, or if you are booked for two or more nights we can swap breakfast for transport (within reasonable local distance). A few popular wedding venues are actually walking distance from our place.

The shower is relatively disabled accessible (flat entrance, no lip, but please note there are no hand rails). We have a shower chair we can pop in there on request. The Airbnb accommodation at our place is all on one level, except for two steps down into the sunken lounge room. My mum is disabled, so we are conscious of disabled access.

Rebecca and Simon were absolutely wonderful. Rebecca was very easy to organise with when planning the trip and all of the details of the unit and directions were spot on. They were very accommodating with our mountain bikes, and the dogs and goats were so friendly! (If you're not an animal fan this place may not be the best fit for you). They gave great recommendations on where to eat and where to bike. They lit the fire for us, and you could tell they just generally loved hosting. It was a very great stay.

Absolutely lovely couple. We enjoyed our stay very much. Rebecca's coconut pancake is a must to try. We had a great chat over breakfasts and definitely will recommend their place to our friends.

Rebecca and Simon went out of their way to make us feel at home and we couldnt have asked for better hosts! The dogs and goats are super cute, house is the best combination of modern and classic, scenery around the home is beautiful and Rebecca's muffins, gnocchi and banana pancakes are scrumptious We can't recommend them highly enough to anyone who is looking for a relaxing getaway around Mt Macedon region:) Thank you once again for having us, can't wait to visit you again soon!

Our hosts were very hospitable and friendly and we were welcomed by their lovely goats and dogs. The bed was extremely comfortable and Rebecca even went the extra yard to bake some muffins for my wife's birthday.

Staying with Bec and Simon was great. They were very accommodating, picking me up from the station and cooking yummy vegan pancakes for breakfast. The location was beautiful, perfect for walking the Macedon Ranges Track. It was almost like staying withini friends. Would definitely recommend and will be back next time I need some me time
