WOW! (AirBNB Review)

Wow! Where do we start... Carmel’s little Hideaway in Emerald just completely exceeded our expectations. Carmel was attentive to our needs without being intrusive. The stay was a home away from home with every intricate detail nurtured and delivered in style and quality. The art decor was just gorgeous and tastefully executed throughout. The grounds were whimsical and beautifully landscaped, incredibly peaceful with an ambience that fit perfectly with the stunning surrounding Emerald backdrop. Our highlight was that Carmel had every little detail covered from beautiful breakfast supplies right down to mozzie spray. The local township is a two minute drive which included beautiful cafes and the best bakery in Australia that you just have to visit to believe. Carmel was a fantastic guide knowing when, how and what. This stay is an easy 10 out of 10 hands down !!! We can’t wait to return.

Better than we expected in every respect. The kids loved the toys, the fish pond and the swing. We loved the interior decor, the peace and quiet and the little waterfall beside our patio. Carmel provided everything we needed and more. She was a very caring and helpful host. Thanks Carmel

Funky design touches (AirBnB Review)

A really perfect place for a near-Melbourne getaway that feels like you're in the bush. Carmel's place is very well set up with a comfortable, modern and newly renovated interior. There are funky design touches throughout with very generous amenities. Carmel was highly responsive and helpful pre and post-booking. The garden is a particular highlight in its design and positioning in the surrounding bushland. Watching the sunset through the huge gum trees at the highest tier of the garden is highly recommended. Highly recommend this stay. Thanks Carmel

Fantastic! (AirBnB Review)

Carmel's place was fantastic! It was spacious and comfortable with plenty of space for two people. We enjoyed the amenities, in particular the shower and bed which were both great! Breakfast was provided and there was plenty of tea and coffee as well.
