'Once you settle in the conversation pit, you won't want to leave...' - Guest review
Welcome to our home on the outskirts of historic Castlemaine.
We've had a last-minute cancellation for the first weekend in October. We can't be at the house ourselves that weekend, so you may as well be...
The price for October 6-8 has been reduced, so kick back with a wine and friends in the conversation pit or tour the local wineries, cafés and galleries...
Tranquil, architect-designed retreat in charming Chewton village in Victoria's Goldfields. Open-plan living with generous conversation pit, comfy beds, in-floor heating, rainfall shower, views, bush walks and handy general store. Close to Castlemaine. Ideal for couples, small groups.
The house is light-filled and airy, with large windows, high ceilings and a nod to Scandinavian design. The space is open-plan and slightly unconventional with a small bedroom, a bed mezzanine and a large, comfortable conversation pit that easily fits four adults and doubles as an extra bed.
Set on a 2000m2 hillside block, the house has views, kangaroos, and recently-established landscaping.
Interaction with guests
Entry is via keysafe.
We are readily contactable via mobile and email before and during your stay. We email all guests directions and other helpful information before they arrive.
We also leave information about local events, markets and FAQs at the house. It's a recently-built house, and very straight-forward, but should an issue arise, we have friends and family locally who can assist.
The house is in reasonable proximity to services. A list of emergency contacts is included at the property.
Most of all, we want you to enjoy!
Other things to note
The house offers:
- Quality mattresses, bed linens, towels, crockery, utensils and appliances

Please note: there is no air conditioning, but there are fans and the house is designed for easy cross-ventilation.
No TV, plasma screen, or CD/ DVD, however there are speakers for connecting laptops, iPhones etc.
Sadly, we can't accept children or pets as guests at this stage.
24 hour check-in. Check-out: by midday.
Strictly no parties, and we respect our neighbours by keeping noise down at night.
We built our home just near Castlemaine, Australia based on how we like spending weekends with friends and family. We love to cook, eat and lounge about with a glass of wine. So, our house is designed for exactly that. It's a little unconventional: small bedrooms, but comfy beds and a big conversation pit.
Our backgrounds are design: fashion and architecture, and we like to travel. We live and work in Melbourne (only an hour away), and have good systems, including local friends, in place for the house.
We hope you'll enjoy your stay: it's designed for relaxation.
