As everyone says. A perfect getaway. Highly recommended. Sparkling clean. Modern appliances. Including washing machine and dryer. Beautiful view. It was all the little touches that really made it stand out. Fluffy bath robes, selections of herbal teas, coffee machine, selection of spreads for breakfast toast an excellent bottle of red and so on. Wished we had booked longer

Our holiday was as advertised by Bob & Stephanie. The residence we stayed in was sparkling clean, modern and all of this things one would expect of a five star holiday home. Baroka Downs is remote and all one can see in the morning are the wildlife and magnificent mountain range. So quiet which is a welcome change from the city. Plenty of things to do in Hall Gap and the surrounds. We will surely return to enjoy such a modern, clean and exquisite place. Thanks…

What a fabulous secluded spot Boroka Downs is! Nestled on a Landcare-acknowledged property well off the highway about ten minutes from Hall's Gap, the five units are at least 100 metres apart from each other for quietness and privacy. Our unit faced across the paddocks towards the mountains and we gazed at the kangaroos, wallabies and emus that wandered past. The unit is very well appointed and thoughtfully so, with items such as local wine, jam and honey provided, along with fresh bread during our stay, and a star map and binoculars to make sense of the Milky Way that we can't see from Melbourne. And on our last day, our hosts Bob and Steph kindly let us stay a little longer while I finished a work Zoom meeting. Oh, and did I mention the silence at night? Sssshhh...

Cannot overstate how amazing this place is. As soon as we walked in, we were struck by the beautiful view and the immaculate accommodation. It was sparkling clean, and there were so many thoughtful touches that made us excited to settle into our 3 night stay. I proposed to my partner on the first night and it was perfect. Not another soul in sight, just us, the birds and the gorgeous kangaroos. You feel totally alone in nature here, even when all the rooms are occupied. There are so many fun things to do in the area but make sure you allow some time to sit in the spa and really ‘soak’ up the views! Thank you Stephanie and Bob for creating such a magical place, we will be back!

We’ve been fortunate over the years to stay in some fabulous luxury accommodation and places with superb views. Not only does Boroka provide both but we could not fault a single thing. We only stayed three nights but could have easily stayed a week. The TV was never on once as we had breakfast and dinner outside each night and just took in the views and wildlife - sitting outside we were fortunate enough to see kangaroos, wallabies, red deer, fallow deer, emus, rabbits, foxes and an abundance of bird life. On the second evening the wallabies came in to drink at the water bowl next to the residence and on our final morning a wallaby and her joey came in to graze just feet from us. There are a total of five residences but sufficiently spaced out and separated by trees and bushes so we never saw or heard a single other person. The views across to the Grampians are terrific and it was fantastic to see the array of wildlife in such a quiet and serene setting. The only noise was from the birds. And a huge bonus point - the flies never pestered us (such a rarity in Australia !) and no mossies. The residence is fantastic, well positioned and laid out with floor to ceiling windows to allow you to take in the views. It also provides every (high quality) mod con you would ever need and terrific attention to detail to make sure you are well looked after - books, guides, leaflets, local information, binoculars, brand new Nespresso machine, coffee pods, a huge selection of Australian teas, biscuits, fruit, champagne, cereals/muesli/corn flakes/sourdough for breakfast, butter, jams and honey, milk, ice etc etc etc. surround sound TV, free wifi and an electric bbq. There’s also a separate utility room with washing machine and drier. The huge spa bath was terrific, as was the fabulous and comfortable king size bed. The bathroom was huge and the shower was superb ! Loved the Sukin products. On a warm clear night we sat out in the field under the stars - pitch black and absolutely no light distortion so the skies were stunning. In the space of 45 minutes we were treated to two shooting stars and several satellites passing over ! We certainly fell in love with Boroka Downs and will definitely return this year. A final word for the owners Bob and Stephanie - communication was quick and friendly. I was also very grateful for their help when I asked for a last minute favour for my partners 50th ! Much appreciated.
