We are a family of four (kids are 3 & 8). My husband works in digital sales and I run my own business working from home. We love to travel and show our children different parts of our beautiful country and abroad (when finances allow!). We are honest and reliable individuals and care very much about you enjoying our home and our beautiful area just as much as our own holiday. We will do everything we can to make your time in our house as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.
Type: House, Bathrooms: 2, Bedrooms: 3, Sleeps: 8
About our House: We have a 3 bdrm house + study. We have 2 living areas - one for adults and one for kids. Both rooms have large LCD/plasma TVs. The kids room has DVD and Wii + train table, drawing table, plenty of games, books, movies etc. We have a dining table that seats 8 people + a huge outdoor undercover deck for alfresco dining with BBQ and outdoor heater. We have 2 adult bikes (one has a detachable baby seat) + 2 kids bikes and live close to a fantastic bike path that will take you all the way to the beach (35kms).
Our front lounge room has gorgeous views to the Dandenong Ranges.
We live at the foothills of the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. If you haven't thought about The Dandenongs as a holiday destination you really should look into it! Set in fairytale-like forest and ferns, The Dandenongs is a haven of hidden delights for nature-lovers, outdoor adventurers, art enthusiasts, foodies and those seeking some rest and rejuvenation. Its right on Melbournes doorstep, but feels like a world away.
Within minutes of our house you will find yourself winding up the mountain surrounded by towering Mountain Ash and lush ferns to the quaint villages scattered throughout the hills including Sassafras, Olinda and Mt Dandenong. Enjoy devonshire tea, farmers markets, festivals, breathtaking scenery, artist studios, craft stores, plant nurseries and unique shopping. You can find all the information you need here - http://www.villagesofmtdandenong.com.au/ or here - http://www.experiencethedandenongs.com.au/# We are 20 minutes drive from the Yarra Valley winery region and only 40 minutes from the Melbourne CBD or beach. Take your pick!
