We have handpicked a collection of Yarra Valley properties shared with our own family and friends when they visit.
To us, the people and operators behind theses properties are as important as the properties themselves.
The Farmhouse at Meletos ~ A special Boutique Hotel Experience with a similar aesthetic to Botanica Editions where we often share mutual guests. We have worked in close collaboration with Stones & Meletos since opening Botanica Editions.
[Nadia and Amy will look after you when you mention you are our visitors]
Brookland Apartments ~ In the heart of Healesville and operated by Healesville Hotel, these apartments are easy walking distance to everything in town and they offer the most hypnotic mountain views. If you require a larger family home during your Yarra Valley stay, Furmston House is also offered by Healesville Hotel
[Elise will look after you when you mention you are Botanica Editions visitors]
Seville Estate ~ A stunning vineyard aspect with Villas for two grounded in one of our favourite Yarra Valley Vineyards. Perhaps the larger Homestead, with a phenomenal kitchen and pool, is more suited for your group of up to eight. Seville Estate Homestead is the perfect place for wedding preparations.
[Tony Layton totally ‘gets it’ and has created a team who, similar to Botanica Editions, deeply care about each guest experience. They will all look after you when you mention you are our guests.]
Candlelight Cottages ~ Cosy Cottages in the Dandenongs – a short drive from the Yarra Valley - operated by one of the most experienced hosts in the region, Peta Rolls.
Peta has been our Mentor from the early days of Botanica Editions ~ The Willow House and Habitat House. She often retreats at Botanica for her own personal rejuvenation and therefore completely understand the experience you were planning during your stay with us. Peta will help you create your own rejuvenating retreat in the Dandenongs.
Kangaroo Ridge ~ Stunning Yarra Valley views with couples only villas. Rebecca's efficiency and desire to help you create any special occasion has made us feel she is our long lost Twin Soul. Did we mention the stunning views...... and the bath!
A few other suggestions by friends we trust.
Larnook at Sherbrooke ~ Paul offers this spectacular off-grid- couples - hideaway experience in the Dandenong Ranges Kallista. With the most beautiful 'cabin' appointments of hunter bathroom products, outdoor (and indoor) shower, gas log fire, and outdoor firepit and.... stunning valley views. Off-Grid can also mean luxury!
Ville d'Soumah ~ TJ is delightful and you should contact her directly (rather than online booking systems) for a more personal and tailored experience. One of our favourite Yarra Valley wedding photographers, Rick Liston, says Ville d'Soumah is a stunning location for wedding preparations ..... and photography.
Chum Creek Huts ~ Beautiful spaces and ideal if you would like to include Equine Therapy (to complement the Plant Therapy of Botanica Editions) in your Yarra Valley adventure. Catherine will help you with accommodation and Clancy is one of our most experienced horse riding guides for that Equine adventure through the natural State parklands.
