Thank you so much for hosting us, this is simply a dream house for every one of us. You've taken care of every detail & we're really touched. The morning meditation was a favorite for me at your property.  Eileen & friends, Singapore, August 2014

We had a truly relaxing and wonderful stay - a wonderful spot to celebrate my birthday with my family. The small touches have made our stay feel like it's a home away from home.  Bec, John & Isobel, March 2014

A great experience. The house has every single small item you may need at home, how considerate. We also enjoyed the organic vegetable that Karen & Greg planted, which was delicious. Really nice and definitely would come back.   Sabrina with Mum & Dad, Beijing, September 2014


Thank you so much for welcoming us to your beautiful house. We love the warmth, and the willow tree, it is so magnificent we could stare at it for hours.... A special thank you for the chocolate gifts and the birthday message for my husband. He loved it!   Gerard, Georgia & Bobby, August 2014

Thank you for a lovely stay! We were besotted with your gorgeous deck & gardens.... After the rain this morning they looked just like a beautiful Monet water colour. We want to take them home with us! Many thanks.   Liz & Nick, April 2014

Thank you for the opportunity to stay at your wonderful Botanica Editions. It was immaculately clean, well appointed, styled and a truly luxurious experience.   Martin, August 2014


Thank you both so very much for helping us make our 10 year wedding anniversary one to remember. We have appreciated the serenity surrounding us this weekend. You have definitely made our anniversary a very special one!  Marg and Peter, June 2014

This is such a lovely house, we love the garden very much! The kids like the goats. We all enjoyed the lovely stay here! Thank you we will return!..   Grace & family, Hong Kong, May 2014

We enjoyed a wonderful Easter, relaxing, reflecting on the beautiful garden outlook, sampling great food, wine and beer of the region - especially the local cheeses, salami and ham at K&B. But always able to come back to enjoy this outlook. You've created an amazing place that we would recommend to friends.  Mike & Alison, Wellington NZ, Nick & Megan Melbourne & Ballarat, April 2014


We were blown away from the moment we stepped foot in The Willow House. Beautiful, clean and well furnished house. Idyllic garden and perfect location. Thank you for our gift. We will definitely be back with friends.   Nazli, Miguel & little Alana, Melbourne July 2014

Thank you for your warm hospitality and providing a home away from home (well actually much nicer than my normal home). Every little detail was taken care of - a thoughtful, beautiful, peaceful sanctuary. Looking forward to our return. Much love   Zoe & Jess xx , August 2014

I adored the olfactory experience, even the Bed lined smelt divine! A lovely touch was the Bubbles for Yasmin's Birthday and the gorgeous potted early cheer. Loved the tranquility of looking out into the garden. You have done a wonderful job of making the stay an 'experience'. Your attention to detail is extraordinary and much appreciated. That is what sets you apart form other.   Fay & Yasmin, June 2014


You really created a lovely place to stay. Certainly for us, the best B&B in Australia. You've clearly put a lot of heart and soul into this place. We had a great time and will be back.   W& T, Hong Kong, March 2014

We can't wait to come back   Hannah, Anand & Kids, Brisbane, Feb 2014

We would like to thank you both for making our stay at Botanica Editions so special....we were able to sample a few delights from your lovely winter garden. .... I found a lot of inspiration in your beautiful garden. As a textile artist I was able to create a few very special pieces while staying here... We both hope to come back and see the Willow House change with the seasons.   Jacinta & Chris, June 2014

Just wanted to say thanks for the wonderful stay at your lovely house. What a gorgeous house and garden you have created. The property has a very special feel about it.
Thank you so much for the Lemongrass and bubbles. The boys were very impressed.   Nicole, Kathryn, Matt and Nick, March 2014

We had a wonderful time at the beautifully designed 'Willow House' and garden. We look forward to brewing the chai tea, awaiting the daffodil blooms and many thanks for the lemons. The little touches are what make it enduring. Warmest regards  Magda, Mario & Hanna, July 2014

Our stay was wonderful. Our family could have stayed on the back deck for ages rocking on the chairs, staring at the fantastic garden.  Jack, Tess, Peter & Charlotte, Sydney October 2014

We had a great time here at this place. Whilst the weather was raining all weekend, we enjoyed cosying up and watching your garden. Thank you for your thought in what seems like every detail! We appreciated the little messages in each room which made this beautiful place even more characterful.
Thank you also for the bottle of bubbly & the lemongrass plant - we did not expect these in any way. You sure do know how to host!
 Andrew & Mary Ann, April 2014


"We love The Willow House in the Yarra Valley. A place to come home to after discovering all the beautiful wineries in your region. A true sanctuary."
 Tom and Nora, Cobram November 2013

"Thank you for all the little treats during our stay. We love the fragrance from your 'Apothecary'. Mint is my favourite."    Clare and Stephen, Brunswick, Oct 2013

"Peaceful. Nurturing. Steady.  The Willow House seemed to touch my heart somehow and offer hope to my weary body. The willow stands tall and proud beside the Piccaninny Creek. A healing tree; weathered and wise like grandmother yet pretty and dainty as a maiden. Thank you Karen and Greg for creating this beautiful haven. A place to retreat. A place to nurture my soul."  Sarah, Melbourne December, 2013

"It is so nice to have someone do all the work for us to experience 'Garden to Plate". There is nothing like freshly picked salad leaves, 30 seconds later on your dining table. We love being able to harvest from your seasonal garden - thank you!"  Wincy and Chloe, Docklands, November 2013
