Diana's home is spacious, welcoming and full of colour. We had a wonderful time here and would recommend anyone looking for a retreat in a beautiful part of Gippsland to stay here. Diana is an impeccably warm, accommodating and considerate host. She went above and beyond to make our stay a fabulous one.

Diana's house was perfect for our family trip away. With seven adults there was plenty of space. The outdoor area was the perfect mix of shaded areas and open and we spent a lot of time enjoy this. As we were staying for 10 days Diana serviced the house half way through our stay which was lovely.

Diana's family sized house is well located within pleasant walking distance of the Paynesville shops (including supermarkets), cafes, marina, ferry to Raymond Island, and lake frontage beach parks. The house had everything we needed to enjoy a relaxed family time over Christmas. In particular the kitchen/meals/lounge open space and the outside deck and patio area, with gas BBQ (much appreciated), are great features. The house was spotlessly clean, wardrobes had plenty of hangers and space, bathrooms had good quality towels for everyone. The dishwasher and washing machine are all good quality items and there were also plenty of products for them, plus handwash at sinks & bodywash in showers. Two electric fans helped a little with hot days and warm nights, in lieu of air con, but this was only a minor thing. It was a huge bonus for us to be able to bring our small dog along too, and he thoroughly enjoyed the garden and walks from the house to the lakeside. Diana is a helpful and approachable host, and made us feel very welcome. Overall, the property was terrific, exactly as described and just what we needed.

Diana was great to deal with in booking her house. Nothing was too much trouble to explain or clarify. The house was spotless and in excellent condition. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The house is less than a 10 minute walk down to the water, restaurants and an IGA in a beautiful part of Lakes Entrance (Paynesville). Neighbours were walking dogs, stopping to say hello and having a chat, such a beautiful place to relax and recharge. Would highly recommend this house and Diana as an excellent host.

The home was exactly as represented and located well. Diana was very accommodating and we enjoyed our stay very much. The house was very modern and clean with a well equipped kitchen. The beds were very comfortable and the outdoor seating area was especially nice on the warm evening. The house as described is divided into a small bedroom/ensuite/separate toilet which is rented separately from the remainder of the house. The house has 2 bedrooms with only one bathroom/toilet being accessible through the master bedroom. This is fine for a family but really not acceptable for two couples. I didn't look closely at the details and I probably wouldn't have booked it for 2 couples had I realised. However that being said Diana was kind enough to open up the separate area allowing us to use the 2nd bathroom and toilet when it was vacated. Very satisfied with our stay overall.

Response from Diana:
Thanks Robyn I appreciate your comments and I have decided to open both bathrooms as it is much nicer for guests and to ensure the BnB is closed on those dates. I tried never to book out both at once but it did happen as guests over lapped as with you and at Easter. Best wishes and if you wish to come again with your friends, and my home is available, you are very welcome.

Jodie and family sound delightful and I am sorry I had to change their reservation - I have put my home up for permanent rental - I am sure they will enjoy the Holiday house and will be great guests

I love living by and on the water. Paynesville is a delightfully friendly community with great facilities and coffee shops. Kerry (male) and I enjoy the relaxed lifestyle, Golf, Boating, Swimming etc and easy access to the Mountains.
