We love the tall trees - the fresh mountain air - the views of Melbourne city lights at night from SkyHigh Mt Dandenong. We love exploring the interesting shops, dining at Coonara Springs Restaurants. Our most special joy though is the nature, bird song, wild life we see from day to day - we never want to leave!
Set in the township of Olinda, Candlelight is a charming three-bedroom cottage perfectly suited for families or small groups. Thoughtful touches such as a spa bath with a glass ceiling, a log burning open fire and plush bathrobes provided for use during your stay guarantees all the ingredients for absolute rest and relaxation. The front veranda catches the morning light making it the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or the private garden at the rear, featuring a waterfall, outdoor dining area and a BBQ, is a wonderful spot to cap off the day with a glass of local wine. With three bedrooms, including one king, one queen and one single, a fully equipped kitchen and laundry, this renovated cottage includes all the mod cons you could want whilst still retaining its historic charm. Ideally located within walking distance to Olinda village, Mt Dandenong village and the Dandenong Ranges National Park you are ideally positioned to enjoy the best of what the Dandenongs Ranges has to offer.
Sassafras, Olinda and Mt Dandenong are the 3 beautiful and ecclectic villages in the Dandenongs. There are 5 Public Gardens, thousands of acres of national parks, cafes, 1000 steps to climb if you wish. Or, maybe you'll just choose to lounge about and enjoy a massage, a little gentle exploring of shops .There's as much or as little to do as you wish. A walk to Olinda or a walk through the forest in Sherbrooke, or a drive to the Yarra Valley wonderful wineries will be a beautiful day out. You will, however, come running home to curl up by the fire in the winter! Coffee at Ripe in Sassafras. Great hot breakfast for you at Black Kettle or Ripe. Traditional English tearoom at Miss Marples, but the highlight is a High Tea at Fortnums in Sassafras. We loveThe Piggery Cafe at Burnham Beeches in Sherbrooke, Coonara Springs Restaurant in Olinda or Dudleys in Olinda for the best pizza and casual dining.
