Jaan and Gina clearly put a lot of love into this place. It was magical to stay in, every aspect of the stay was easy. They have put a lot of thought into the smallest of details and it makes all the difference. Jaan and Gina were also super easy to communicate with and when we had a little problem with the spa they couldn't have fixed it quick enough. Very grateful for our long weekend here and for the attention to detail.

Family from Melbourne staying for 2 nights attending a weekend wedding. Beautiful large property. Bedding, bathroom and kitchen fully equipped, clean and in good condition. 2 of the bedrooms opened out into a communal bathroom area, bring a robe. A three page list of rules and potential additional costs were communicated two weeks before arriving. Rules include no bags on beds, no shoes inside, no rolling wheeled bags on floors, no food in bedrooms. Potential additional costs include, an extra cleaning fee being charged for "leaving food waste and food in fridge, waste & bottles/cans in outside areas and not in bin, leaving unwashed dishes and cutlery in the sink and around the house, leaving the trash in garbage bags inside". When I asked if we could invite some family friends over for a few hours for afternoon tea the answer was that this would not only incur an additional fee but that I would also need to hire portaloos. Overall it was a large amount to pay for two nights and although the house was nice and comfortable I felt unwelcome and unable to relax. The hosts asked for bank card details for the bond to be sent via text, rather than through the website. This made me feel very uncomfortable. Before payment make sure to ask for a complete and updated copy of the house rules and make sure to arrange all terms and conditions. Only communicate through Airbnb, rather than private email and text message.

I have absolutely no complaints with the hosts. They were both helpful and welcoming. The place wast stunning and peaceful. Although it was a short stay, there was so much to do and plenty to explore. Quite sad we didn't get to stay longer. The yoga room was particularly the highlight of the stay. Plenty of room and plenty of showers for a large number of guests. I can't wait to go back and visit this place! Thank you Jaan and Gina. You've been an excellent host and I will definitely recommend this place to my friends.

Mandalong Sanctuary is absolutely stunning, the pictures don't do it justice. We loved our stay, Jaan and Gina were lovely and extremely helpful. They are only up the road so close by if you have any questions. We stayed for a weekend for my sisters hens party, we made full use of the luxurious outdoor spa and disco shed (well worth the extra cost for the disco shed)! We were able to also relax completely, and enjoyed relaxing in the yoga room whilst listening to the sounds of nature and taking in the beautiful views of the property. Unfortunately we didn't get to see the wombat! The rooms are a good size and so are the beds. There are enough showers and bathrooms for a large group (we had 16 adults). The kitchen was fully equipped, and the oven was large which worked well. I would love to return one day and would highly recommend it! There is very minimal phone reception, but I was quite happy not to use my phone for a weekend. It would be great to go back for a yoga retreat.
