Banool Cottage offers a perfect getaway from city life. It's located in a quiet street but close enough to town and the water so plenty to do. The cottage has a rustic country vibe and was very comfortable to stay in. Kate was so lovely to deal with and communicated regularly to ensure everything was okay. I would definitely return to Metung and recommend Banool Cottage to couples and families for a quiet getaway.

We had a fabulous stay at Banool Cottage with our family. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed to be comfortable for the week. The cottage was warm and homely with quirky art around the place. Our dog loved the large yard and kids loved the fire pit. Kate was helpful and quick to respond on all occasions.

Beautiful house and interiors! A very relaxing place to stay with our two dogs who loved the huge secure yard and the doggy blankets and beds. Every we needed for our stay!

This is a very well equipped cottage set in a beautiful bush garden. A perfect refuge for getting away from every day living.

I am passionate about art and nature , I mainly work from home creating copper jewellery , garden plans and artwork for clients . I like new challenges , the cottage was a project I worked on for 18 months , gaining building skills along the way !
I still have twin teenage girls at home who keep me on my toes , and our two dogs . I have lived in East Gippsland for 28 years so though not quite a local , I am happy to meet guests and assist them with local knowledge of places to see , eat and things to do .
