Our stay at Halycon was absolutely 5 star. Cally and John's communication was fantastic and they made everything as easy as possible for us. When we arrived we were greeted by John and Baxter (the resident dog), and shown the cottage. Smooch (the resident cat) was also quick to greet us, and was very friendly and cuddly. The fire place had been made up ready to light that night, and we found a lovely welcome gift in the fridge. The views from the cottage are incredible, we kept saying that what we were seeing looked like it was straight out of a magazine! It's a really special place in a beautiful part of the world. I was sad to leave and hope to go back soon!

Simply magnificent. The warm welcoming from Cally and John, stunning view with lovely pet sheeps, stylish yet well equipped house, one of the fastest wifi I've ever seen in any accommodation, all these combined with an adorable cat walk. Ten stars!

After years of working in the hustle and bustle of the city and living in Melbourne's busy tourist precinct of St Kilda, John and I decided to trade in our Metro cards, bundle up our belongings and escape to the rolling green hills and star studded skies of magnificent Gippsland. Food, wine, laughter and friends are the spoils we enjoy. These are indeed our 'Halcyon' days and we hope you love it here as much as we do...
