“The most magical place we have ever stayed! Felt a million miles from anywhere. Instantly exhaled on arrival. We were visited by rosellas, parrots, kookaburras, an echidna, and a lyrebird within hours of arrival!
Hosts ensured every single detail was made extra special. Particularly loved the master bedroom furnishings, the library of art books, and the functional record player. Incredible views from every window, in any weather. Already dreaming about visiting again. Cannot recommend highly enough.”
Michael and Laurel were exceptional hosts; they coordinated our stay so beautifully, and provided us with so many suggestions, recommendations, and goodies (e.g. bacon, eggs, coffee pods, chocolates, muesli, etc.). The property itself is absolutely stunning! Nestled among the trees, half way up the mountain, it is idyllic.
It’s quiet and relaxing, and there is nothing better than taking up residence in the swinging chair, staring out at the trees, and listening to the birdcalls. Inside, the house is warm, welcoming, and beautifully designed.
Everything is provided for you and, if you enjoy to cook, the kitchen is well-stocked and spacious.
The open fireplace is wonderful on a cold winter night, and the windows give clear views of the forest from every aspect.
The property is only ten minutes from Healesville, and a stones throw from numerous wineries and distilleries. It was everything we could have hoped for, and so much more! We can’t wait to go back.
Best Airbnb I’ve stayed in to date. Location was an oasis and the views were in a class of their own!! Fantastic!
Olivia’s in the forest is perfect for a relaxing getaway from a busy city life. Secluded and quiet, it was great getting to light a fire and sit in the cozy lounge room, and watch the sun set over the forest. The house itself is modern, clean and nicely styled. A very homely feel, with lovely hosts!
Amazing property in secluded location! Had a great weekend away. Plenty of space, and excellent finish throughout the place. Also great communication from the hosts who looked after us from booking through to check out. Will certainly look to stay again.
Michael and Laurel have a beautiful home. I look forward to the opportunity to stay in it again. It is comfortable, cozy and the lack of fences on the property give the impression of endless gum tree forest. P.S., the chocolate, bacon, eggs, and other breakfast and kitchen amenities were very well appreciated. Thank you very much
How lucky we were to find Olivia’s in the Forest. Stunning location deep in the forest. We enjoyed three days of pure peace listening to the amazing bird life and making the most of all that was offered. The outdoor BBQ, the outside fire pit, fantastic Sonos music throughout, magnificent kitchen and comfy lounge with open fire. Generous breakfast supplies and more. It was beyond our expectations and we hope to come back one day.
Thanks for everything
Beautiful home with breathtaking views. The perfect house to escape and relax in. Communication with Michael was immediate and very helpful, and the booklet helped us make our way around town with ease.
