This is a fantastic place to unwind, a great city getaway. We enjoyed cooking at night and then sitting by the fire looking at the stars having wine and tea. Definitely head up to Ruffys cafe, well worth the drive as they had amazing food and service

HI Joanne It was fabulous to walk into a lovely warm and inviting studio. It was absolutely freezing this weekend but the heating was on and we were very grateful! Lovely space to stay and relax. When it got chilly at night putting the heater on upstairs was great. Views fabulous in between the rain showers and hail ! Loved the hot shower and comfy couches! Too cold to eat outside but appreciated the well equiped kitchen to cook indoors! Thanks for the tips. Janine & Dom

Well, what can I say ... my words don't quite describe the feeling of staying in this wonderful place. This warm and cosy sanctuary perched on the hillside with the amazing views was indeed the peaceful retreat space that I needed this Winter. The comfy couches were perfect for lazing in to watch the amazing picturesque landscape with its changes as the clouds and sunshine passed by. I loved the ambience and architecture of this place. Thank you Joanne for your hospitality. Abekye is great! ... I could've stayed there for ever!!

We loved our stay. Made an outdoor fire every night - lovely view, quiet, just perfect! Took Joanne up on her suggestions and have to say that our Sedona Wine & Ploughman's platter is definitely worth it! Thank for sharing your home.

Joanne is an amazing host, who went out of her way to make sure we had an memorable stay. The cottage is well located on the hills surrounding Yea. It has a great panoramic view of the town and its surrounding rolling hills from both inside and outside. The cottage itself is beautiful, with an open design and warm welcoming feel. Outside it has great deck and fire pit to sit back and enjoy day or night. It is well located and within walking distance to town. Definitely a place worth staying, especially for a weekend away to unwind, relax and recharge.

This unique character filled home was designed and built by myself - and after enjoying living in it for 6 years, I've moved on and decided it was time to allow others to enjoy it too. It was designed to be a sanctuary away from a busy lifestyle - somewhere I could just curl up o…
