“Beautifully maintained, cosy comfort close to the main street and the Lakehouse”

I loved the location. We could just cross the road and walk to the lake in about a minute. We arrived and the villa was warm and inviting with the pot belly heater on. The beds were the most comfortable that I have slept on. There were lots of extra blankets for curling up on the couches too.

A lovely destination for a get away!

“A pleasant stay in good location”

Stayed for 2 nights over Christmas. Good/handy location. There is no lake on the premises so the name can be misleading:-(. The 4 villas on the property are very quant with each having a terrace/seating area with table and bbq which was nice to have. We had the 2 b/room villa which was comfortable and spacious, modern and felt like home really. However the bathroom was a bit tired and could use an up-date. Also lack of walk-in shower was a shame as spa bath /shower was quite difficult//dangerous to get in/out - especially for older people as I was with my parents who are in their 70's.. Kitchen facilities were good and had all the basics. Would stay again for a short stay.

“Gorgeous location”

The photos here do not do it justice. The fresh paint on the outside makes them look adorable ad I was so pleased when we pulled up as it was a surprise for my birthday! We had a one bedroom villa which was very comfortable and cosy. The spa was big enough for two quite comfortably. We stayed three nights and it felt like a home (thebed was really comfy too!)
My only feedback is that phone reception was really lousy (as it seemed to be a trend in the area) and the digital tv reception was crackly at times. If watching TV is important to you, perhaps throw a couple of DVDs in your bag. WiFi would have been great, but we lived without it.
There is no information about the region in the room and this would have been really helpful (eg local eateries, doctor, sight seeing etc) seeing there was no reception for me to google.
The villas were fabulously located! An easy walk to the Lake House, Daylesford Lake and the Boathouse (within minutes) and the main streets were not too far away either. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

“Tired looking and definitely not clean”
Reviewed 10 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We have stayed in many accommodation types over the last few years but...on getting out of our vehicle there was a sense of disappointment due to the neglect of the exterior and then on entering the property we just felt it was tired and a bit unloved. It was when we had unpacked and went into the bathroom and looked at the kitchen that things became so disappointing. Bathroom...shampoo/cond/bodywash ....looking mouldy in containers...believe it was probably different product poured on top of remainder. Kitchen cleanliness not good at all. dirty crockery...dirty cutlery. There was a certain amount of dust and neglect throughout but even a chocolate handprint on the staircase...I hope it was chocolate. We rang owner and they did get someone out to clean again within 2 hrs but when even the cutlery drawers are dirty....you have to wonder how much love and attention is given...would not recommend.

It is disappointing to receive such a review.
I agree that the exterior of the property needs work and just today met with a painter who is to commence work on painting every villa in more modern colours. He will also replace some of the weatherboards which have been damaged by the weather over the years. Unfortunately, due to the cold weather in Daylesford, we have had to wait until the warmer weather to arrive to have the place painted
We employ a firm of cleaners who have a great reputation in the Daylesford area, cleaning a large number of rental properties in the area. I will pass on these comments to the owner.
We have recently put new furniture in the property, and have replaced all of the pillows and bedding with new luxurious products from the company that supply linen to the Windsor Hotel in Melbourne

“No Wifi but worth it”
Reviewed 3 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Only 3G phone coverage in the area and this villa has no wifi which was frustrating! Are we in 2016??

Anyway, it's a modern furnished and comfortable place near a wonderful lake - not far from points of interest. However, we went to start cooking and found ants all over the bench top and sink on both days.

Garden needs maintenance as its overgrown but I thought it gave the place a little more character.
