It is a very peaceful setting and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We loved all the little extras, with providing food, the Tim Tams were delicious. Everything was set up beautifully with great attention to detail. Thanks very much Mary. Victoria"

"The family has thoroughly enjoyed the stay here. It is very homely, cosy and beautiful. Having nature in your backyard is extremely rare in Singapore, therefore it was a wonderful experience feeding the Kookaburras and seeing Rosellas and Cockatoos so close to us! From the moment we stepped in, we fell in love with the apartment. The décor is just fabulous; your introduction was really informative and friendly. The family room is extremely well equipped with magazines, DVDs and furniture! Our son loves your bean bags. Our daughter loves the princess beds! Thank you for your kind hospitality!! Keep it up Mary and Anders Singapore"

"This is the first trip to Melbourne Victoria and I was searching for a place for my family to stay for our visit to the Yarra Region, and I’m sure glad to have found your excellent “Home away from Home” It was beyond our greatest expectations. Wow! My wife was fascinated by the birds’ welcome and all the décor were her dream come true. She loved to hang out in the family area, our daughter felt so pampered with the ‘princess bed and the electric blanket. I like the 400 day clock and the framed picture of the house featured in the show “The Man from Snowy River” and we watched the movie together. Your personal touch and detailing can be felt throughout your place. Thank you Mary for making this a wonderful place. Singapore"

"Thanks for so much help in setting things up for us to stay with our sixteenth month old son. We had a lovely stay and he loved the outdoor areas. The birds were a highlight…he thought they were her to play peekaboo with him."

"Gorgeous! Comfy! Homely! Has to have been the most relaxing long weekend ever! Close to home for us, but a totally new area that we explored, loved and most definitely a place we will return to! The dogs were happy and relaxed too, and they loved the garden and happily played in the carport. We didn’t need a thing – you have thought of every possible comfort – even for the dogs! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!"

"Mary, thank you for such for such a warm welcome. You made us feel right at home. You apartment is warm and beautiful. Real country charm. A Home away from Home as we live in the bush. Also has given me ideas for the same sort of thing. All the places you recommend were great. Also Mary going out of your way to drive us back to the venue. Thank you. I would recommend a stay here to anyone. Thank you. "

"From the first moment we spoke on the phone to the first steps inside the apartment I felt nothing less than comfort, warmth and care. No one has ever gone out of their way as much as you have to even organise the most beautiful glutten-free breakfast and snacks. The apartment was very clean, welcoming and we felt right at home, wish we could stay longer. Thank you so much for having us and we’ll be coming back to visit Yarra Ranges Country Apartment again."

"Thanks so much Mary & Anders, you made a hard week at work wash away, feeling so relaxed as soon as we walked in. The accommodation went above and beyond what we had ever expected and we feel very spoilt. All of the little touches were beautiful (especially the choices in bed) and we will definitely be recommending the Yarra Ranges country Apartment to all of our friends."

"We have had a lovely time here. It is lovely and cosy in the winter months. We had a little trouble finding the place - perhaps put a sign along the main road to make it easier. The birds in the morning were a delight!"
