A serene valley 1 hour SE of Melbourne in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges. Wake up to kookaburras, kangaroos, and gorgeous rescued horses, on our 15-acre hobby farm. Take romantic walks on our country road, go solo and explore adjoining flora & fauna reserve, birdwatch, write your book, visit wineries or meditate.
Be respectful and considerate, no smoking, no excessive drinking, we can only accommodate a single person or a couple/ 2 people max as there is only one guest room available and if you want to invite guests over you have to run it by us. We have a lot of animals as we're a hobby farm and love animals- horses, dogs, cats and wildlife. It is suitable for anyone who is cool with having our cats and dogs wandering around the house as they are part of our family.
I'm a Freelance writer/journalist/photographer with a passion for social enterprise and animal advocacy, gourmet vegan cooking and socially engaged Buddhism. I love to read, run, hike, travel and give to organisations that help wild and domestic horses- especially the old ones. Coffee, chocolate and wine are my other passions- to be shared with good friends over great conversations. My preference is to have a fair bit of solitude as well, especially when I travel so you can expect a quiet guest, likely to be out for a run and/or buried in a book or writing. The other co-owner of the house- a beautiful little farm named Rivendell on Wurrundjeri country, and I have horses, cats and dogs as well as love the kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and parrots. Helpers from around the world love it as much as we do.
