  • Great host, great property, lovely beds with crisp white sheets. Sovereign Hill so near. Thank you Kara for a lovely couple of days.

  • Ideally placed for visiting Sovereign Hill, with a secure and safe garden for kids.

    Elizabeth2017-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Close to Sovereign Hill. A good base for travelling around the area. It is on a noisy corner, but good value and a comfortable space to stay. We were also able to stay nice and warm due to the heaters. Thanks Kara.

    Galwiji Homestead has been in our family for 4 generations. It's a comfortable 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom country home with a large games room. This is complemented by an outdoor dining deck (seating 15), set in a mature garden with bird life aplenty
    In our family for 4 generations, the house on our property Galwiji (made up by combining the names of 4 brothers Gordon, Alan, William and Jim) will give you a delightful taste of Australian rural life. It's spacious (25 squares) - there are beds for 18 and even a lawn for camping if your group's a bit bigger and you want to rough it a bit :) It's also very comfortable for small groups or even just a couple on a romantic getaway. We guarantee to beat any price you will find on any internet site by 5% if you come directly to us via our own site (which can be found by putting our name, Galwiji Homestead, into any internet search engine). For all stays, we provide pillows, blankets and doonas. The prices quoted do not include linen, but at a cost of $25/person, we are more than happy to provide it. You are of course welcome to bring your own, taking into account that at a minimum, every bed requires a pillow case, a fitted sheet and either a flat sheet or a sleeping bag. 8 minutes' drive to shops, 18 minutes' to Sovereign Hill, 22 minutes' to the centre of Ballarat, 1 hour to Geelong and Avalon Airport and 75 minutes to Melbourne Airport (Goggle Maps says 1 hour 40, but we know a back way :) There's ample parking. Internet is available for a small charge, but mobile phone reception is excellent (due to the proximity of Mount Buninyong) and the sims on our iPads work well. 3G Reception is clear on the Telstra and Optus' networks and improving all the time on Vodafone. Mostly, we just love Galwiji for the peace. A gentle breeze, broken only by the occasional baa-ing of sheep and the t-w-i-t-t-e-ring of birds. The farm is home to various animals from time to time, and if they're about, you may be able to go and greet them (they've had plenty of human contact). The range of bird life is extraordinary and the many different calls are worth sitting quietly for a while to hear. We had an ornithologist visit recently, and he was able to catalogue 40 species! If you want to break the solace, there's a recently-rebuilt Lipp German upright piano (dated at 1899!), and a nylon-string guitar. There are many kids' (and adults') board games, table soccer and table tennis indoors, while outdoor treats include a large oak tree with seats underneath (in the middle of the sprawling garden), a treasure hunt, yabby (freshwater crayfish) fishing, exploring around the shearing shed and tree farm, not to mention endless open spaces to run around in. The house consists of 1 master bedroom with ensuite (with an additional double sofa bed), 2 other queen bedrooms, another bedroom with 3 single beds, another bedroom with bunks (two single beds, one above the other), all the normal amenity rooms (t.v. / lounge/ dining area / kitchen and laundry), 2 additional bathrooms, (one newly accessibly refurbished with shower, basin and toilet in the one room and the other with an enormous bath) and lastly a very large family room with sofa bed sleeping for 3 (1 x single and 1 x queen), table tennis / table soccer / lounges / chairs and a large slow combustion wood heater. A second house (900m away) is available if your party is greater than 12 guests and you don't wish to camp. It's 3 queen bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. As far as amenities are concerned, Galwiji is fully self-contained, and then some. It has a full kitchen with a dishwasher, toaster, kettle, large microwave oven, large fridge, urn, pressure cooker, rice cooker, large flat grill, sandwich maker, electric mixer and coffee machine. Our Weber Kettle BBQ and 4 burner gas barbecue on our brand new extended deck provide an opportunity to BBQ (grill) outdoors if you desire. There's an additional 2 burner BBQ if you really need to get some fast tucker prepared. There's a large flat screen TV with DVD player, radio / c.d. player, as well as important appliances such as a front-loading washing machine, an ironing board and a hair dryer in each of the 3 bathrooms. For a really special evening, a telescope is available, because the stars at Galwiji are a - may - zing! It's quite an environmentally-friendly property too. Apart from the 100 acre tree farm (we're growing Sugar Gums and Blue Gums), most of our electricity is provided by solar panels and all of our water comes from the sky. With that in mind, we provide you with a large external clothesline, and some freestanding drying racks. Unless it's mid-winter, it does also limit your ability to do water-intensive activities, but if you'd like to bring a blow-up pool or similar, it may be possible to fill it from the nearby dam, so please ask! Your hosts, Ann & Bill and their sons Malcolm and Angus are seasoned travellers. Ann and Malcolm are fluent in German and French and Angus dabbles in German. Strictly no smoking on the property, either indoors or outdoors (due to fire restrictions) and strictly no pets. Apologies for the high cleaning fee. When you see the size of the house, you'll understand why - it's about a 4 hour job! P.S. The site is handicap accessible (the house and grounds are fairly flat, with 'made' pathways and we have a designated accessible bathroom). We've had several groups of wheelchair-bound guests enjoy the facilities. P.P.S. For the full terms and conditions of a stay, look up the terms and conditions tab on our website (which you can find by putting our property name into any search engine) P.P.P.S. We've just recorded a 2 minute video tour of Galwiji. Look us up on you tube :)
    It's not possible to arrive at Galwiji Homestead without relaxing. The simple reason is the absence of noise! Once you arrive somewhere that really quiet, you realise how loud the city actually is.
  • Malcolm went to great lengths to meet up with me beforehand and explain the in's and out's of the house. He and his family are lovely hosts and made my party feel very welcome. The homestead itself was just what we were looking for - a traditional family farming home, set in a rural landscape away from the crowds. The property has some quirks, but that is to be expected and was well explained beforehand. We stayed at the start of Autumn and the surrounds were incredibly beautiful. Galwiji is big and spacious, and although some of the facilities are slightly old, everything is functional, well documented and adds to the character feel. This is a lovely family home, brimming with the history of a local family who are sharing the opportunity to experience a slice of country Australia through Galwiji.

    Tim2013-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • We were welcomed wonderfully by Bill and Anne Pryor and Malcolm called the next day to make sure everything was going well. Galwiji is just as described and even better when you are there in the beautiful countryside. We enjoyed walking around the farm for a few kilometres, then coming back to the cosy fire and playing games. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

    Rachel2014-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • The Scotsdale farm was a terrific venue for our large extended Family of nine including three grandkids, who enjoyed the rural experience and resident cattle. Close to nearby Buninyong and only a 20 minute drive to Ballarat, the quietness of the property made for a relaxing family experience whilst providing all the modern conveniences and separate zones for privacy as required. Particularly relevant for three separate families sharing the large house. Even a BBQ on the verandah overlooking the kids playground and the paddocks beyond. We were settled in nicely by Malcolm's caretaker parents who reside nearby, and Malcolm even made the longer trip to meet us on check-out and seek any suggestions to improve the property and our experience. As a result, the sand-pit will have a shade cover installed to protect the kids from the sun. Arrangement can be made for the kids to experience a milking session at the nearby dairy farm, but make sure you check the correct milking time. Like all locations away from the big smoke and city lights, star gazing at night is an added bonus, with a few Moon craters thrown in!

    Max2014-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • There was plenty of communication prior to arrival and we found the listing with ease. The owners met us upon arrival and instantly made us feel welcome. The farmhouse was comfortable and clean and there was ample space for our party of six. We enjoyed exploring the property and local area. Watching the sheep was a source of amusement as well. We would not hesitate to return in the future.

    Darryl2015-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely outstanding family stay over 2 nites. We had 12 guest ranging in age from 5 to 82 & each had there own special farm experience. The Pryor's are great hosts, the homestead was very comfortable & I would highly recommend it as a great location to come together with family & friends. Tony Gunn

    ANTHONY2014-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Another great stay at Malcolm's - this was our third visit. Came with a group of 8, he allowed us to have an early check in and all went smoothly

    Ali2016-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Galwiji homested was absolutely perfect for our stay. Thanks for answering all our many questions Malcom. Our whole group had a wonderful time. The home was warm and relaxing. All of our needs were met and Bill and Ann made us feel very welcome and at home, we appreciated them being there to welcome us and show us around. The farm walks were my favourite part of the property but there was so much to see and do it was so hard to decide what I liked best. I wish we had stayed longer than just the weekend. We will certainly return again. Thank you very much for such an enjoyable stay! We highly recommend staying here!! Best wishes from Sarah, Shannon and the rest of our group. :)

    Sarah2015-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great mini escape to the country at Malcom's place. Very well organized, clean, beautiful space that we thoroughly enjoyed.

Buninyong has four free-use tennis courts, skate park, parkour park and a outdoor swimming pool which is open in Summer. Cyclists love Buninyong. Home to the Cycling Australia Road National Championships, riders love the mountain roads which wind through a rural and bushland setting and finish with a selection of great cyclist friendly cafes. The local supermarket is well stocked and friendly. Buninyong also offers a pharmacy, pub, post office, bakery, takeaways, newsagent, petrol, vintage goods, bike shop and repairs and a medical clinic. At 745m, dormant volcano Mt Buninyong is a delight to walk around and explore. It can be seen from the property. If you're keen, it takes about one hour to walk to the top via the well marked and scenic Goldfields walking track.
  • Lovely property, beautiful garden, cosy house with plenty of room, had a great stay!

    Lisa2017-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • So much space you can relax with family or like we did bring some more family. Kids slept in studio and felt like kings. Wood heater and games at night and more space than we could use. Very cosy and we will definitely be back. Loved it.

    Lisa2017-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Fireside was absolutely perfect for our large group. The main room is big enough for everyone to gather around the wood heater and mingle in the kitchen. We cooked up a few times and had everything we needed. There is a dishwasher as well! Outside is absolutely lovely, even in winter. It would be ideal in the summer for a big BBQ. We had a great time with friends and would recommend it for multiple couples (since there are lots of separate sleeping spaces) and close friends. Thanks so much Debbie!

    Gretchen2017-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Debbie for a great stay! We were a big group and there was room for all of us, an equipped kitchen and a lovely outdoor area. Would recommend for group or family getaway!

    Verity2017-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay in Debbie's property. The house comfortably hosted all 9 of us and was surrounded by beautiful gardens. The indoor wood heater kept the house nice and warm (along with small fan heaters), the outdoor fire pit was great to sit by and the kids loved toasting marshmallows. A short drive to Buninyong shops and cafes and approx. 15 mins to Ballarat.

    Sharlene2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Debbie continued to be a great host for our film crew - house is spacious, comfortable, bright and beautiful. Debbie was so great to communicate with, helpful in every way. Was great accommodation for our film crew while shooting in Bungal. Thanks again Debbie - would thoroughly recommend.

Great spot for kids to run around - they loved the sheep! Will strongly recommend this place for any medium to large group. Thank you Debbie and family.

    Private room and bathroom at the front of sustainable straw bale house. Guests are invited to use living space and grounds. Kitchen area is available for snacks/ breakfast on request. Being sustainable, this house doesn't have or need air con. It is has limited tank water and uses a worm farm for waste water. On five tranquil acres on side of Mount Buninyong with gardens, alpacas, chooks and collie dog. Ask for simple directions rather than internet which has incorrect maps.
    Private room with queen bed and TV, with adjacent (not adjoining) private bathroom with bath/shower etc. Tea making facilities in kitchen. Room has Truth window which shows that the wall is indeed constructed with straw. Care is needed with our house waste system which is a Biolytix worm farm and works beautifully as long as nothing harmful to worms goes down it! Therefore, we are happy to provide organic shampoo/conditioner and organic soap as part of your stay. There is a heated towel rail to warm your provided towels
    Buninyong is a well known and pretty village just 12kms south of beautiful historic Ballarat. It is very lively with lots to offer from bespoke shops and cafes, restaurant, a pub, chemist, supermarket, PO, servo etc. There are a number of churches, parks, botanic gardens, historic houses and walks and outside the lovely Town hall is a monthly market. From the property, there is access to the Great Dividing Trail which goes up to the top of the Mount Buninyong and down into the village itself. Lots of bush walks all about and cycle trail along the nearby Yarrowee River into Ballarat. Home to cycling championships in mid January which brings big crowds.
  • It was wonderful to stay with Jenny and Paul and to talk all things strawbale. And a pleasure to experience the comfort of a well insulated place during the winter months. I am now further inspired to build my own strawbale home.

    Eleni2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Paul and Jenny were great hosts. Our second year staying with them and it felt like we were catching up with old friends. We sat outdoors and enjoyed their company, felt relaxed and at home and are looking forward to visiting again next year. A wonderful relaxing home with friendly hosts.

    Helen2017-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful country escape in Buninyong!! The straw bale house was beautiful, with the comfiest bed and our own bathroom. Jenny and Paul were great hosts - very friendly and generously helpful. They were very welcoming yet we also felt like we had our own space. Meg the dog was very cute and it was fun to feed the alpacas - Snowy and Bink. It was very conveniently located to some great walks and bike trails, which we thoroughly enjoyed! We will definitely be back and would highly recommend!

    Toby2015-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Jenny and Paul were both so welcoming and sweet. The room was set up beautifully and the whole house was well designed. After breakfast Jenny took us out to feed the alpacas and gave us a tour round the veggie garden and chooks which we loved. My boyfriend and I had a lovely time at the straw bale house and would highly recommend it.

    Carly2015-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Jenny and Paul did a great job at making me feel welcome in their lovely straw bale house. This location is very picturesque and conveniently located.

    Jay2015-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • An invitation to a cup of tea when we arrived was perfect. Very easy to locate using Jenny's description. We used this as a base when we were attending a wedding in Buninyong but it would be a great place to just relax and visit the local area. Jenny and her husband were very friendly, they have a marvelous home, and our room was perfect. The facilities were first class.

    Michael2016-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed at this wonderful house as our first night away as a family with our young (First) baby. Jenny and Paul were happy to accommodate us with our very busy and mobile 8 month old. We felt as though we were staying at the grandparents house! We felt relaxed in the country home environment. We enjoyed that the room was private and spacious while having a warm homely communal living area when we wanted to socialise with the family. The fresh eggs we were able to help ourselves to from the kale fed free-range chooks were a treat in the morning! Thanks for a great get away! We would recommend this to any person keen on a country escape from the busyness of city life!

    Amber2016-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • How can anyone resist alpacas or Mag- the most adorable border collie you will ever meet in your life! My partner Brad and I stayed at Jenny’s place for one night and it was definitely worth it. Jenny and her lovely husband are thoughtful and they take a lot of pride in their lovely home. You will not regret your stay! This place is a quick escape from the city life to rejuvenate your body and mind. If you are looking for a place close to Ballarat, this is your place. Thank you, Jenny, Paul and Mag! We loved our stay.

  • What a Gem! We are so happy we booked the accommodation at Tullaborra Farm. We found our stay exquisite, the hosts Cheyne and Nikki very kind and the place and the setting extra special. We loved interacting with the family, the sheep and the dogs. The decor in the bungalow is beautiful, the beds and linen very comfortable and the bathroom convenient. The fire was on for us to make it warm and cozy. The rural views are great for city dwellers like us, very peaceful with the Eucalyptus trees and the wind blowing between them. Thanks a million for such a pleasant stay, Cheyne and Nikki. We will be back!

The place was perfect for us, the doggy door was perfect for our husky to come in and out of, the bed is super comfy. Really close walk to the cute town they have here which has a bunch of stuff, and the main Ballarat town is only about 10 minutes drive. We loved it here, and will definitely be coming back! Internet is perfect for anyone that's coming here for business like we were. Water pressure is awesome! Just, if you're here in winter remember to turn the heaters on from about 6pm, Ballarat really is cold... We'll totally be back! This place is super cute, in a super cute town. Thanks for everything Tim!

    Pet & kid friendly bungalow on hobby farm near Buninyong, Ballarat. Wild kangaroos, range of native birds including rosellas & kookaburras and beautiful valley views make this a great place to relax with your animal & human family.
    Two room bungalow is located on a 12 acre hobby farm which backs onto crown land and is a short ride to state forest with dozens of trails suitable for bushwalking, horse and bike riding. Bungalow is best suited for 2 people but could cater for a couple of children as well though would be a bit cramped. Bungalow has own fenced yard suitable for dogs. Yards and stables are also available if you want to bring your horse on holidays with you. Property also has round yard and dressage arena for horse riding and we may be able to provide pony rides (weather and time permitting). Note - Absolute minimum of 2 night stay (can't find how to record this on the site).
    Beautiful location with views over the surrounding valley from the Bungalow verandah. We are only 6km from the pretty, historic township of Buninyong. Approx 20min drive to Ballarat's many attractions including Sovereign Hill, Prime Ministers walk, Prisoner of war memorial etc. Also lots of local attractions known only to locals that we can share with you.

  • Loretta was easy to communicate with beforehand - and the place was perfect for what we needed. A good base from which to explore the Ballarat/Daylesford area and super quiet. Room as described. A place to get away from it all. Bring your insect repellent though if mosquitoes love you!

    Kristian2016-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • An excellent bungalow with a wonderful deck to relax on. The accommodation is basic but was spotlessly clean. Loretta was a wonderful host who really went out of her way to provide for a lovely stay. Thanks Lorretta and hope to stay again in the future.

    Marg2014-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place to experience the real Australian life!!

    Alessandro2016-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was just perfect for a quiet getaway, lush green surroundings and chirping birds. I was looking for a quiet place, self contained, noise free, perfect views, away from hustle and bustle, and this bungalow on a horse farm met my needs. Loretta is a perfect host, has taken care of all details, including directions to get there, with plenty of breakfast foods, and excellent notes for those looking to explore the region further. Accommodation is basic self contained bungalow with a bedroom and a lounge, bathroom facilities are in the main house for exclusive use. The veranda in the front is superb to relax, have meals, catch the sun, and views as far as the eye can take you.

    John2014-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • A+ Bungalow was as described (perhaps better) and the location is perfect with state forest down the road, Buninyong and Mt Buninyong nearby, and a 20 minute drive from Ballarat. Loretta was a fantastic host with spot on info about some pretty special local attractions. I don't usually say that kind of thing, but she really nailed it. More privacy, luxury, and serenity than one would expect for the price tag. I hope to stay again (for longer), and I would recommend this place in a heart beat. (Cheers Lori!)

    The cottage is located on an acre with 'Clifton Villa', one of the earliest homes in the area and number 2 on the Historical Map of Buninyong. The free standing cottage is newly renovated and only a short walk to shops, cafes and restaurants. 15min from Ballarat, 35min Daylesford
    The cottage is a very generous size with basic kitchen facilities, including a fridge, kettle, toaster and all kitchenware you may need. Fine for breakfast and lunch but not to cook dinner. BBQ available for use. There is a pullout sofa bed, and plenty of room for a single mattress or porta cot. Additional adult guests will be an additional charge but children and babies welcome to stay for only $10. Enjoy a glass of red around the outdoor fire pit or a bbq dinner in the woolshed, lit up with fairy lights. A real country escape.

    Minimum 2 night stay. Our guesthouse is close to restaurants and dining, public transport, and family-friendly activities. You’ll love the views, the location, the people, the outdoors space, and the ambiance. Our guesthouse is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids). Only 10 minutes to Soveriegn Hill, 2 minutes to Federation University and 1 minute to beautiful coffees, its 16 acres of bushland and wildlife with Buninyong and Ballarat at your doorstep.
    Idyllic bush setting on 16 acres yet not even a 10 minute walk to Buninyong and less than a 10 minute drive to Sovereign Hill. It is a fully self contained detached unit with its own personal balcony overlooking the protected bush land and wildlife. There is a queen bed and a double sofa bed in the guesthouse. We also have two single bed mattresses available to put on the floor in the living area. Also available upon request is your very own personal cinema for those special movies for the kids.....or adults.
  • Great family accommodation, cosy, quiet and just like a home away from home...

  • Such a tranquil home to relax in, just a short drive to Ballarat. The home theatre is your very own private cinema. Given the location, the internet can be sketchy so BYO movies! Short drive/decent walk to Buninyong town, Foodworks, cafes, pizza, half court basketball, parkour park, and tennis courts. A perfect, out of town, place to stay while visiting Ballarat.

    Edwin2017-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Discover the unique treasures of LAL LAL while staying in a beautifully appointed B&B. Features of B&B- Queen bedroom, wood fire, separate spa suite, separate bathroom/laundry, full kitchen, dining and lounge areas, air\con. 15 mins from Ballarat/Vic
    The cottage is in a relaxing country garden setting with views of Mt Warrenheip and farmlands opposite. We have koalas in our trees. Local attractions include the lal Lal Falls and the Moorabool Falls, picnic/playground and walking tracks.
    We are in the country but only 15 mins. from a major, regional town of Ballarat. Close by is the unique and historic LAL LAL BLAST FURNACE which dates back to the 1890's. Within this area is the LAL LAL STAE FOREST with many easily accessible walking/bike tracks. Guests can visit the LAL LAL RESERVOIR and Interpretative trail - this area has picnic/toilets and BBQ facilities. We are close to all Ballarat attractions including the world renowned theme park of Sovereign Hill, Ballarat Reptile Park, Botanic gardens and the delightful regional towns of Buninyong and Daylesford. Our B and B is a 5 minute walk to our local country hotel which has meals on the weekend. In the separate family room there is a queen, fold out sofa bed if more than 2 guests wish to stay.
  • Our stay was magnificent. The photographs don't do this lovely cottage any justice. Would go back anytime.

    Karen2016-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • If you're looking for some tranquility away from the bustling city, La La is a quiet, quaint getaway. With all of the luxuries you need to rejuvenate, including a cosy wood fire and double spa bath looking out to the country landscape - this is definitely a place to unwind and take in the scenery. La La Falls is a small drive away and worth the view, particularly from the lookout. For those wishing to go for a decent bush walk - Moorabool Falls is a good two hour turnaround but the chance to see some of the flora and fauna, particularly on Salty Creek trail. A private universe!

    Rachel2017-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place. Loved the quiet setting and curling up beside the fireplace. Ursula and Graeme were very responsive to any queries, and we're definitely planning to head back for a longer spell soon.

  • My partner and I had a lovely stay at Lal Lal Falls Cottage, the spa was amazing as with the fire. Everything was very clean and the host was very accomodating. Only downfall was that the Lal Lal Pub was shut down, this would have been nice to know beforehand as we had to drive out of town for dinner. But overall a lovely stay! Thank you

  • We stayed in the area for a week for an event. Travelled with a group of 8. Courtney was a great host. Made us up 2 spare beds on the floor to accommodate us. As the house was a huge 4 bedrooms + a study + a huge well maintained backyard, everyone staying had plenty of space to themselves. House was modern, tidy, and tucked away in a perfect location (400m from main street, 10km from Ballarat central). Can highly recommend stay here!

    If you love the Australian bush but want to be close to Ballarat and Buninyong, you'll find this very comfortable getaway truly magic! The huge picture window looks straight out onto the bush where you can watch the bird life from the dining table.
    The space is very large and cool in the summer, but toasty and warm in the winter, opening out onto a large deck and overlooking our fire pit and garden-in-the-making. The rooms are large and very comfortably furnished. Bedding is one queen bed, three king singles and a foldout couch which sleeps two. There is a kitchenette with a microwave but no stove as there are lots of restaurants close-by. There is, however, a coffee machine, a sandwich press, an electric frypan and a rice cooker. The bathroom is up stairs and is also very large. The unit doesn't need air-conditioning in the summer as it is so cool inside. (Great for the environment.) The large gas heater keeps it toasty and warm in the winter. The unit has original artwork by the artist-owner, Grace Bailey.
    If you like watching birds in their natural environment, our place is like living in a giant aviary without the netting! We have many varieties of birds nesting in the trees near the house and around the 2.5 acres. We've also had a couple of koala sitings and wallabies as well.
  • Booked this accommodation for my family to stay at my wedding. They all loved it.

    Caroline2017-04-01T00:00:00Z

    Why pay for motels in the country when you can enjoy real country living? Just 25 minutes from Ballarat, Glenleigh's guests' wing is private, self-contained with plenty of space, private deck, sweeping views of the Leigh River Valley and across to Mt Buninyong. The property has bush walks and is a working farm with people-friendly sheep, goats and horses. There is a library with an extra single bed, television with Foxtel and Netflix. Free wi-fi. Look for our page on F acebook.
    Guests have exclusive use of their own private wing of the house - bedroom, bathroom, library / TV room and private balcony. Guests also have use of the shared dining and living area of the house which has a baby grand piano for the musically-minded, the kitchen which is equipped with both electric and wood-burning combustion stove. This is a working farm and their are plenty of domestic pets and farm animals people can interact with if they wish. Guests can feed the baby goats or sheep when they are in season. This is NOT a property for people who do not like having animals around. The animals are excluded, though, from the guest wing for the comfort of guests. The guests' area is fully heated and air-conditioned for the comfort of guests. There is a private guests' fridge in the kitchen stocked with milk, eggs, bacon, butter/margarine, water, juice, soft drink and snacks for the exclusive use of guests. Espresso coffee, tea, milo and hot chocolate facilities are available for guests 24/7. An extra bed can be added to the guests' room to comfortably sleep four (4) with notice (the extra bedding is perfect for young families but might be a bit squeezy for more than three adults). A porta-cot is available for guests' use free of charge. Children aged under 12 with their parents stay free of charge.
    Glenleigh is south of Buninyong on the Mount Mercer Road, part of the historic Golden Plains Region of Victoria. The region is rich with gold rush history, a strong and growing quality produce and dining industry, boutique restaurants, bars, wineries and plenty of open spaces. The Leigh River forms the east boundary of the property. It is a beautiful river with plenty of wildlife. There are beautiful walks on the property and areas to rest and contemplate. And it is just 25 minutes to the centre of Ballarat.
  • Staying with Peter was an absolute delight! I had originally planned to do some tourism sites in Ballarat, but fell in love with the grounds and the view, so opted to have a relaxing day inside instead. Wouldn't have had it any other way. Waking up with the sunrise at my feet was the cherry on top. Highly recommend!

    Amy2017-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Firstly, I felt very welcomed by the host, as he is very friendly. The place is very suitable for a person who loves nature and peace, I got to play with the cats, dogs, adorable cute goats! The rooms have large windows, which you can enjoy such breathtaking view. I will definitely come again. Very recommended!

Peter got us plenty of vegetarian options for breakfast and gave us lots of privacy in one half of the house. The newspapers are available in the morning, there's a big TV with Netlfix and good coffee. It's an ideal place to relax for the weekend.

Thanks Peter, we will be back!!

Peter, the host, is helpful and really goes above and beyond; although he lets you be. The shared kitchen is well stocked for your breakfast. I'm so glad I stayed here and will be back again!

    Comfortable private bedroom with double bed and a garden view, on a quiet residential street. We are close to Sovereign Hill and walking distance to the Federation Uni campus. The house has two distinct living areas which we are happy to share with visitors. Kitchen access and free breakfast provided. Interaction, or otherwise, is entirely up to to guests. We enjoy meeting people and sharing stories, however equally we understand sometimes people need quiet time.
    Lots of bush walk opportunities nearby. Bike paths that will take you into Ballarat central. A short walk to the local cafe. Close to Buninyong village.

    "The Cottage" is set on 9 picturesque acres, 10 minutes from Ballarat CBD. In a park like setting guests are able to relax in tranquil surroundings; enjoy a BBQ on the back deck; play records in front of the open fire; feed the native birds and chickens, and recharge.
    The Cottage is on the same property as our home, about 50 metres away. It has one main bedroom with a queen sized bed and a small second bedroom with a single bed. The kitchen/living area is open-plan and facilities (website hidden) include double hot plates, microwave, kettle, toaster and electric frypan. Please note there is no oven. There is a TV with DVD player; a CD and record player with records and CDs; and a piano with music if you feel inclined to tinkle the ivories! We have Telstra mobile and 4G coverage and guests have access to WiFi. Whilst we would love to say our hens lay eggs all the time, sometimes they go off the lay. At these times, fresh eggs will not be available. We have two little boys and a boxer dog. Whilst the Cottage is very private and self contained, we may be out and about gardening and playing, especially on weekends. However, it is most unlikely that we will be in the way! Please note that the Cottage is not really suitable for small children. We have unfenced farm dams within close proximity to the back deck of the Cottage. There are also a number of decorative items at toddler level. We appreciate your understanding. There is also a minimum two night booking policy for public holiday long weekends.
  • Pleasant, friendly and relaxing stay, close enough to Ballarat for activities and situated in quiet country surroundings.

  • We had a lovely time at The Cottage. It was charming, warm and comfortable. We enjoyed Ballarat and would recommend this accomodation unreservedly. Anne was very helpful in all her dealings with us.

    Richard2015-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great little cottage- recently renovated. Very comfortable with a great rural outlook. Enjoyed the fire and the ambience. Plenty of Jazz and Blues to listen to- and an interesting history to the cottage.

    Trish2014-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts were friendly and the cottage was lovely and cosy. A perfect way to unwind from our hectic life in Melbourne! Would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants some peace and quiet.

    John2015-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • The Cottage was spotless with the heater on ready to welcome us. There was also a perfect open fire prepared ready to be lit! It is a beautifully renovated cottage perfect for a weekend or week get away with a private deck at the back of the house with a BBQ and little table to enjoy the garden view. Other special touches include a piano, record player and TV if you feel like having a cosy night in. We would definitely come back and recommend to friends.

    Julian2015-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Anne and Steve are wonderful hosts, their cottage is set in beautiful surroundings and is a home away from home, The cottage is very comfortable , they have done a wonderful job of restoring the cottage. We enjoyed our stay immensely . It is not very far from the centre of Ballarat and all that Ballarat has to offer. Such a very peaceful place.

    Nora2015-04-01T00:00:00Z

    Nina2017-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend this beautiful, charming cottage. Full of the most amazing things to look at and read for all ages. Hosts were so friendly and helpful, full of interesting facts and information about the area. So many thoughtful touches, fresh baked bread and cookies on arrival as well as plenty of food for breakfast. There was even kids cereal and kid friendly shower supplies. A fantastic games room and a play room kept our kids (age 11 and 8) very happy. We even bought some books written by the host which offer a hilarious look at history. Absolute top pick for families.

    Karl2014-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • We love staying with Sue and Dean, they went out of their way to make us feel welcome, they even contacted restaurants to find out if they will be open for dinner on Good Friday for us! Their private retreat is exactly as pictured and described, and was the perfect location for us to explore Ballarat, the Grampians and Daylesford. We highly recommend Sue and Dean and we thank them for their hospitality - we will definitely be back!

Also a nice little balcony where, weather permitting, you could enjoy a cup of coffee or nice little sun-downer. Definitely recommend but suggest you have your own transport.

    I am a bit biased as I love our little Amber House. We aimed to make guests feel like they were at home and comfortable. Amber House has a great heating system, as Ballarat can be cool. We always pop the heating on for our Guests arrival in the cooler months. Children love the garden usually filled with flowering plants and is enclosed and safe from busy roads. We feel Amber House offers the perfect location and ambiance for a relaxing get away, for both couples and famlies.
    Amber House is a newly renovated home consisting of 3 bedrooms, main with ensuite, walk in robe and brass double bed. Second bedroom has queen bed suite and built in robes. Third bedroom has two single beds, built in robes, there is a basket of toys for the children in this room. Lounge has a 3 seater couch and a 2 seater ( house sleeps maximum of 8 ). Lounge has flat screen TV, and DVD player. Videos and DVDs, there are books for young, and not so young , and a selection of board games. The house has a full main bath room with double shower and bath. Kitchen has dishwasher, full size fridge/freezer, microwave, and complimentary tea and coffee Laundry has both washer, and dryer, detergent and softener for 3 washes. There is a deck at the back with BBQ and a court yard setting with table and chairs. The yards, both front and back are enclosed and a carport with roller door that locks, there is also a verandah at the front with table and chairs. Overlooking a cottage garden.
    The Mt Clear area is undulating with beautiful trees, a short drive to Ballarat's CBD. There are bike tracks close by, and the international bike race is held close by at Buninyong each year.
  • Amber House was a wonderful stay, and Maureen was very accommodating with our requests. The house is very clean and spacious and pleasant and everything we needed was thoughtfully provided for us. Thank you so much!

    Chris2016-01-27T00:00:00Z

    Jeremy2017-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Maureen's response to our request was prompt and all the information and directions she provided for our arrival was clear and detailed.

  • Caroline is a great host she given us heads up well in advance to locate her beautiful house. Her property is located in serene location of Mt. Clear to relax after your busy day tour at the same time its 5 minutes’ drive to Sovereign-Hill and other Ballarat attractions. Caroline left the lights and heating on before we reach the property that was amazing to get in bright cosy house on arrival. She meticulously made all the arrangements for our family stay. My daughter enjoyed playing in the toy room from heaps of choices to play and read. She has got decent collection of books to read in the lounge. We cooked breakfast during our stay and the kitchen in the house has got all the Chef tools. House was very spacious clean and tidy. We enjoyed our weekend very well. Thank you so much for having us.

    Narayan Virendra2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Had fleas jumping on me that were dying so obviously the host knew about the problem and instead of fixing it just bomb the house and let me and my 6 week old son to get bitten by fleas. The toilets were dirty with pee all on the back and there was bunch of yuck hair and old soap left in shower but no shampoo and while your having a shower the bathroom fills with water. I think the way Caroline handled the problem was just rude

    Stacey2017-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • We spent two nights in Carolines home and have absolutely nothing to fault about it! Communication with Caroline was easy and informative. Caroline even went above and beyond and made sure to pop around before we arrived and turned the heating on so we had a warm house to welcome us. The house was clean, homely and had everything we needed during our short two night stay. There was a map of Ballarat and information pamphlets left for us to have a look at and gain some more information on the area. The house is just down the road from Sovereign Hill and a quick drive into the town centre. We couldn't fault anything about our stay and would not hesitate in re booking if we ever find ourselves in Ballarat again!

    Lauren2017-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic home, nice quiet area, heaps of space! Ideal for family or a few friends to have a trip away. Every thing that you need, Caroline has it covered. Caroline is lovely to deal with and very helpful. Thank you.

    Sass Abode has everything! It is close to most local attractions including Sovereign Hill, Ballarat CBD, Wildlife Park, FedUni, Buninyong. A very large home with an amazing ambience. Two large indoor/outdoor entertainment areas (with BBQ). Central heating, aircon, open fire, optional inhouse chef, enclosed yard, pet friendly, quiet court location, great views - just some of the features. This is AirBnB on another level!
    Truly unique. I cater for families, business travellers, sporting groups, girls/guys weekends away, couples and pets. The home is large with lots of space, including four bedrooms, an office/kids play room, dining room, meals area, two large living areas, two bathrooms (inc. bath), laundry, kitchen and off street parking. The morning and evening views are fantastic. The two outdoor areas are very large - one can be fully enclosed. The yard is fully enclosed so it is child and pet friendly. The court location is very quiet.
    Very quiet, small court location, off main road.
  • My husband, toddler and I just had the pleasure of staying at Sass Abode across the weekend. Modern, spacious and beautifully styled - this huge property ticks so many boxes. Tucked away at the end of a quiet court, you could truly lose days just hanging out in this house in one of the many entertainment areas. A perfect option for families and/or large groups wanting all your creature comforts but still with a luxury, resort feel. Shani, the host, is an absolute laugh and is all about the little details. You can truly see and feel the love and effort that she has put into Sass Abode. We loved it, just loved it. Highly recommend!

  • It was a wonderful stay at Saas Abode. Everything was so clean, neat and well organised. The kind hospitality from Shani was amazing and she made sure that we have everything there to enjoy and relax. Our kids loved the place and we felt like we are at our own home. We will definitely go back again for a longer stay. I highly recommend anybody to experience the stay at Saas Abode.

  • We stayed at Sass Abode for 2 nights to experience Sovereign Hill's amazing Winter Wonderlights. There were 3 children, myself, Grandma and our pet dog. The house was so big and comfortable for all of us. The views were beautiful and the house was so warm and cosy. It was the perfect location to visit Sovereign Hill. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended! Thanks Shani

  • Everything was super! The house is absolutely gorgeous and Shani was so accommodating. Lots of little extras like hand soaps and fudge left for us. We had the ploughman's plattercas well which was really nice. We would definitely stay here again.

    Deb's place is the perfect place for a family or a group getaway. Beautiful modern furniture, quite location with a short drive to the heart of Ballarat.
