  1. A peaceful hideaway!

    We were delighted with this accommodation as it provided a very comfortable, quiet and welcome retreat for our Melbourne stay. It is well located for any activity you choose to do and there are many options for shopping and restaurants, many within walking distance. The accommodation is at the rear of a beautiful original home and therefore the outlook from several windows is onto the garden and into stunning eucalypts. The furnishings are artistic and tasteful, the bed very comfortable and every detail has been considered. The hosts were welcoming and very considerate. It felt like a secret garden experience!

  3. Wonderful oasis in Hawthorn

    We want to thank Julian and Kate for allowing us to stay and experience their wonderful property in Hawthorn. The guest house was quirky, whimsical, elegant and modern all at once. Furnished with some of Kate's lovely art and decor, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Located in the heart of Hawthorn and only a few train stops from the city, but the biggest pleasure we received was from viewing the magnificent garden on this property. We look forward to returning in the near future. Mark and Jennifer

  4. Stunning Property, Outstanding Hosts

    Kate and Julian are the most wonderful hosts. They went out of their way to make sure that we had the most amazing stay. They are friendly and generous and their home and garden is just fabulous. They have thought about every single detail in this stunning property. It was even more beautiful than the photos. They also saved my friends wedding day by allowing us to get ready and have photos at the property when she was let down last minute by the accommodation she had booked for us. A home away from home, a place to retreat. Truly exceptional! The location is perfect for access to the city (10 mins from the a Metro station). There’s also lots of great Brunch spots, wine bars and boutique shops within walking distance. I will definitely be making a return visit. Thank you again for a great stay.

  8. Idyllic home away from home

    The Gatehouse is a wonderfully spacious residence which is perfect for both short and Long term stay. You are hosted in a beautiful garden and absolute privacy. I stayed for 6 weeks and it was a home away from home. It’s location is perfect between two stations and regular tram service, making the need to have a motor vehicle redundant. Kate and Julian are fantastic hosts and made me feel very welcome.
