Be inspired by this elevated, light filled attic style cottage with glass conservatory lounge room, you'll feel like you're in a tree house! There is a Coonara glass fronted wood fire at the foot of the queen sized bed for the cooler months and air conditioning and plantation ceiling fan for the warmer months, city views (only in winter now, as the gum trees in the valley below have grown so tall), cast iron claw-foot bath with the old brass taps in the middle (good for 2 people) and the old Kooka stove. There is the open plan upstairs area with loungeroom, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. Then downstairs there are 2 single beds (trundle beds). The kitchen has cooking facilites - gas stove and cooktop, pots and pans, oils and sauces and a microwave. The digital tv and dvd is in the bedroom and hifi/cd in the loungeroom as well as some books to read. The cottage is located on the tourist rd side of the property so it is easy to find and has its own driveway & undercover parking. To walk to the villages which are just 500m in either direction, you can wander through the garden paths to Monash Avenue and then left down to Mt Dandenong or right up to Olinda, where you will find many boutiques shops and restaurants as well as an IGA supermarket.

What a wonderful place 'Forget-Me-Not' cottage is. It's warmth, charm, views, comfort & cosy atmosphere provided us with the perfect escape. Two days here was like stopping time ~ while petrol prices soar and "climate change" presses ~ we felt like we had stepped into a portal, into another world. A world of charm, harmony, peace & simplicity. This is how we are meant to live. Thank you to Melinda & Brett for your vision, for your attention to detail, for your generosity & for the wonderful haven that you have so successfully created. It will be our pleasure to return again. THANK YOU!
