Aura of the Dandenongs


Check In: 15:00|Check Out: 11:00

This is a lovely self contained apartment, a part of our home in Menzies Creek, the heart of the beautiful Dandenong Ranges.

Suitable for couples or small family groups. Guests have a separate entrance from the owner's apartment, 2 lovely Bedrooms, a sunny Conservatory/Lounge/Dining area, a Kitchenette with limited but adequate cooking facilities, separate Bathroom and a separate toilet both shared between guests. The two bedrooms are: 1. The "Paris Room" with a King size bed which can be split into Twin singles. Please advise us if you require King or Twin so we can prepare the Paris room before your arrival. 2. The "Istanbul Room" has a lovely Art Deco Double bed. This means there are two separate rooms which share the same facilities, accommodating four guests. By prior arrangement we also have available a port-a-cot for a small extra fee. A covered deck with BBQ facilities is yours to use and enjoy the views of our surrounds and the gentle burbling of the Mistletoe Creek which runs through our garden. And last but not least - we are a short walk to the Menzies Creek Puffing Billy Railway station. Trains operate in both directions from Menzies Creek. Toot toot! (Hint - sitting on the deck at day's end enjoying a gin and tonic or a refreshing ale whilst listening to the last trains of the day returning to Belgrave is a real treat, whether you are a railway enthusiast or not!)
