  • 8.0.Very good

    It was a relaxing stay and the house was clean and comfortable. It was peaceful and quiet. The hosts were wonderful and the service was great. They took their time to explain everything to us and we ended up having some great conversations with them. We really enjoyed the afternoon tea just sitting and looking at the nice scenery that is all around.

    We had a really wonderful stay at Tallawara Homestead. Andrey & Janine were both very conscientious and gracious hosts who looked after us during our stay and made sure it was as comfortable as possible. The rooms and the properties were in immaculate condition, and the bed was so good we found it very difficult to get up in the mornings! Andrey Janine serve you fresh breakfast every morning which consists of your standard cooked breakfast and/or continental breakfast which they let you customise to your preferences every morning. If you’re around for afternoon tea they also serve up some absolutely delicious home made scones with cream and raspberry jam that we just couldn’t get enough of! Tonimbuk is a little known area but there were plenty of great sights to explore that we absolutely loved. Yarragon has a really nice retail precinct with a beautiful art gallery as well. At Noojee, you can take some great photos at the Old Trestle Bridge and then have a nice romantic walk through the forests there. There are also some great wining & dining options in the surrounding towns such as Cannibal Creek Vineyard in Tynong, Garfield Hotel in Garfield and Middels in Drouin. All in all it was a wonderful stay, very relaxing and serene and exactly what we needed to escape our stressful work lives for a few days!

    We stumbled across this property and after reading the reviews which are all very complimentary we decided to give it a go. Andrey & Janine are wonderful hosts their sole purpose is your comfort and rest and relaxation without being too intrusive. We really enjoyed our evening and we’re sorry to have to leave. The special touches like afternoon tea, chocolates, fruit and port set this venue aside from others. Janines scones were outstanding with home made jam and cream. Breakfast was another standout, the food was fresh and very well prepared and presented. We were lucky enough to have a host of kangaroos go about their business fir our personal viewing before we headed to bed in the most comfy bed I’ve slept in, I was reluctant to get out the next morning. Do yourself a favour and take a break at Tallawarra you’ll be pleased you did. Thanks again for having us Janine & Andrey
