Botanica Retreat


Retreat to your own lush and private botanical-style gardens literally within a hop, skip and jump of the cafes, restaurants and boutique shops and galleries of Olinda and Mount Dandenong. Wrap-around verandahs and floor-to-ceiling windows allow the outside to come in and bathe you in northerly light. So refreshing!

Have a coffee or wine and take in the morning sun, or sunset glimpses from the verandah, spread a picnic out on the lawn under the trees (picnic basket and blanket provided), curl up on the sofas and watch a movie or lay in bed and take in the garden views for a lazy lie-in.

The kitchen features a gas cooktop and electric oven, microwave, toaster, kettle, pots, pans, crockery and cutlery - complimentary fridge and pantry items provided. The bathroom has a deep spa for two with a huge privacy window again bringing in the relaxing greenery from outside, and a separate shower.

A split system aircon cools the cabin on hot days, and an efficient gas heater and/or electric blankets keep you cosy on the cooler ones.

You are welcome to barbeque on the deck, except on total fire ban days.

Your small-medium sized well-behaved furry pal is welcome with prior approval but there are no fences and the verandah railing has gaps so you need to supervise them.
