Relax in your own private, peaceful & spacious self-contained apartment @ Campania, nestled in 1.3 acres of tranquil gardens, adjacent to the Rhododendron Gardens in Olinda, the most picturesque village in the Dandenong Ranges. So much to see & do!
Campania is a truly beautiful property. The really large sandstone character house is centred within a 1.3 acre garden that was established 45 years ago by a talented horticulturist and is surrounded by soaring Mountain Ash (eucalyptus trees). Within the house is an old 1950s house, brought here 50 years ago! The spacious apartment @ Campania is in a totally private wing of the house and has its own path, veranda & entrance. Basic tea, coffee, milk plus oil, sauces etc are provided but no meals. Although only a 7 minute walk (2 minute drive) to Olinda, Campania is totally secluded on a long 'no through' road - peaceful and quiet. Breakfast (& other meals) are available at nearby Olinda Cafe & the Ranges Cafe.
We have set a minimum of 2 nights when booking but may offer a discount for 3+ night stays - please ask.

We will never disturb you except in an emergency. Living on the property are three mature adults (Robyn, her husband Ken & her sister Barbara), all of whom spend many hours in the garden, so you will see us around, coming and going by foot & car, living our normal but pretty quiet lives. We have family & friends visiting from time to time and during the day occasionally lawns will be mowed, wood chopped, driveways raked - all the usual noises of a family home.
We welcome guests chatting, seeking information &/or asking for assistance as necessary. When away from the property both Robyn & Ken carry a mobile phone.
Ken & Robyn have many years of experience in accommodation management having operated 4.5 star "Goodwood B&B Cottage" in Montrose for 14 years (now closed) and renting out our picturesque old stone house in Cabrerets, SW France for the past 10 years (see Airbnb site).
Bailey, an 11 y.o. Golden Retriever, Chance, a 6 y.o. Corgi & Typsy, a 4 y.o. cat live on the property too. The dogs rarely bark, are very friendly and are either inside (when we are & at night) or in the huge fenced back garden. Typsy spends her days wherever she wants (not in the apartment!) but is inside at night. If you don't wish to interact with them you will still have the very large front garden to enjoy.
We take great pride in our house and garden, keeping it clean & tidy and respecting the paintwork, furniture, linen & towels. We respectfully ask that you do the same please! We also request that you keep noise down as much as possible - our neighbours are quite a distance away but we would not like to offend them. Any damage or breakages must be brought to our attention as soon as possible and we reserve the right to ask for payment if we deem it reasonable to do so.

My husband Ken & I are semi-retired and live 8 months of the year in Olinda in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, east of Melbourne in Victoria Australia. We share a lovely property with my sister Barbara and enjoy our 1.3 acre garden with our 2 dogs, Chance & Bailey. We also have a house in Cabrerets, Lot region, France and we stay there each year for 3 months. We love to travel and enjoy staying in less discovered parts of the world. Our favourite activities include spending time with our 3 sons and their families, wining & dining, cooking, gardening, walking, biking, canoeing...I also enjoy fishing but Ken prefers eating rather than catching fish! We rent our house in France to others from time to time and also operated a B&B cottage in Montrose Victoria (Australia) for 14 years, closed 2014. We are now offering accommodation in beautiful Olinda - an apartment @ Campania.
