So pleased we found this hidden gem in the Yarra Valley. From the moment of arrival, the beautiful garden greeted us and washed away the week. You could spend hours sitting on the deck listening to the birds and exploring the verdant surrounds. Greg and Karen have created a place that oozes charm with the apothecary point of difference. Their...

Arrived jet lagged from the UK for 4 nights at Habitat House. Karen was in contact before our stay to ensure we optimised our visit to the Yarra with restaurants, wineries to visit and trails to walk it off. She also booked us spa treatments at the gorgeous RACV club. Little touches that make a difference were abundant, gifts, gorgeous...

Gorgeous on the inside and serene in the private garden. We enjoyed sitting on the back porch, listening to kookaburras while sipping tea made with mint...

Management response:

Thank you so much for being beautiful, respectful guests who put a smile on our housekeepers face by caring for The Willow House in the same way she does. Then we wake to this heart warming note and your kind words. This is why we love sharing The Willow House with special people who totally connect to the botanical retreat...
