Airbnb stay

The garden suite at Pennyroyal Valley View served as an ideal base for exploring the Otway Harvest Trail and other area attractions during the final 5 days of our 5 week Australia visit, February-March 2018. Michelle and Andrew have created a garden paradise on their 40 acres overlooking the spectacular Pennyroyal Valley. The decor of the “guest suite” was contemporary, non-cluttered and artsy; the sofa and bed were very comfortable. The entire property was lovingly maintained, neat and clean. Since we are “foodies” who travel with our own knives, sharpener and refrigerator thermometer, we especially appreciated the well-stocked kitchen with quality cookware. It was fun preparing and cooking meals in the outdoor kitchen surrounded by gorgeous gardens, bird song and the warmth of a wood burning fireplace. During our stay we ate “in season” produce from their organic garden: honey from their bees, passion fruit, apples, tomatoes, greens, & zucchini. Having area wines available for purchase was convenient. Some activities during our stay: hiked to Elizabeth Lake, walked around the Colac Botanical Garden, enjoyed pies fresh from the oven at the Store in Dean’s Marsh, visited several wineries, walked the coastal trail at Airey’s Inlet, watched surfers at Bell’s Beach, enjoyed music and wine on Sunday afternoon at Gosling Creek, checked out little shops in Birregurra.

We stayed three nights at Pennyroyal Valley View over the Easter long weekend. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable. Extra touches such as snacks, a wide range of tea and some breakfast provisions made our stay very enjoyable. We would highly recommend the BBQ dinner pack, plenty of delicious local and home grown food. Thanks Michelle and Andrew for your hospitality!

Amazing

Michelle and Andrew’s place was beautiful, an amazing location to relax away from the stress of everyday life. Some amazing walks can be found around the property, as well as some friendly alpacas! We were very lucky to be greeted with some fresh passion fruit, plums and olives on arrival giving it a special touch. Thankyou for a great stay, can’t wait to visit again!

Perfect

Our stay here was perfect: the home was spotlessly clean, and the surroundings beautiful. It was quiet and a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The BBQ pack was also delicious, and the veggies from their veggie patch were amazing - highly recommended. Another thing we really enjoyed was the outdoor fireplace (with marshmallows!) and the company of their two lovely dogs. Thank you Michelle and Andrew

Family holiday

I had my family come visit me from Sweden so i wanted to show them the country/seaside of Melbourne. We loved every moment at Michelle and Andrews place! So friendly and hospitable. The place is very clean and comfortable, they respected our privecy the whole time. We got to enjoy the company of their cute dogs which we really enjoyed! We also had BBQ pack they provided for us with short notice two days in a row! It was honestly two of the best meals i have ever had! Andrew sourced the meat from nearby and made salads and vegetables and chutneys that was just outstanding! I will dream about this place for a long time!

2nd stay

Definitely stay with Michelle and Andrew. This was our second time and will come back whenever we can. The accom is separate and private from their home, and close enough if you need them. It has everything you need, is spacious and has the extra touches like a hair dryer! They helped us with some fresh produce from their garden which was delicious on the BBQ for breaky. They have heaps of local recommendations and a great knowledge of their area. The dogs are super friendly and we enjoyed meeting the alpacas and the chickens. All in all a great experience (again), looking forward to our next stay with Andrew and Michelle.

Thanks

Thank you so much Michelle and Andrew for a wonderful stay in Deans Marsh. It made our trip for the Falls Festival wonderful and easily accessible, giving us directions and providing us with a parking and road pass. You supplied us with everything we could possibly need and were readily available if we needed anything at all (as well as giving us plenty of delicious zucchini’s and berries which we are incredibly grateful for). A beautiful home away from home!! Also missing Elvis and Ollie running at the back of us everyday too :) Don’t hesitate to book your stay with Andrew and Michelle! You will definitely not regret it!

Will be back

Michelle and Andrew's place was wonderful. We enjoyed the beauty of the views and gardens, their friendly and helpful hints and their amazing hospitality. Pennyroyal is an excellent location to enjoy the otways. Close to Lorne, walking treks, waterfalls and lovely towns. The doggies were an additional treat. The BBQ and breakfast were great, everything fresh from the garden or local producers. Would have loved to stay linger. Will definitely come back.

Beautiful

Beautiful place to stay with scenic views. Very accomodating, basic provisions provided as well as extras and a beautiful garden with various fruits and vegetables. The owners have made sure that you will feel right at home and provided guides as to things to do and eat in the area as well. Thank you very much Andrew and Michelle!

Lovely place to stay, Michelle and Andrew are great host's. The breakfast and dinner package is wonderful, such attention to detail with fresh local food. Loved sitting out at night with the fire and having dinner. Place is very clean and the garden was wonderful to walk around. Highly recommend staying here.
