Perched up high to take in the outside greenery is the stylish family home, Hygge.

Hygge meaning 'cosiness - sharing good food and drink with friends' suits this modern and spacious property to a tea. The modern yet cosy design of this ideal family home offers gorgeous views from the floor to ceiling glass extending out on to the sunny deck. Warm by the wood fire in winter with a glass of local red or enjoy the afternoon breeze through the sliding doors on a summers day after a dip in the river.

Your fully equipped kitchen offers everything you need to feed a family, there's even a toddler high chair for your use. A BBQ on the deck might be more your style or head down the road for a quality pub or cafe meal. A flat screen TV lets you curl up with a DVD, however regular channels cannot be received.

4 roomy bedrooms perfectly accommodate 2 families with a 2 bedrooms per side of house, each with a modern bathroom. The movable beds offer the option to have king or single beds in every bedroom. The 2 masters on each end also have access to the deck and sunny mountain views.

The large carport below the house leads into your spacious laundry with ski racks, as well as a drying robe for those days on the slopes. We are at the base of 2 of Victoria's premier ski resorts after all! Under the shade of the house you will also find your fully enclosed dog run with a kennel to keep your furry friend safe & happy while you explore the region.

    • Dogs must NEVER be left inside the accommodation without an owner present - if a dog is left inside unattended instant eviction will apply with no refund.

    • Dogs are not to be washed inside the property in baths or showers.
    • Please do not wash dog blankets in the properties machine.  We are pretty sure the next guests will not appreciate your dogs hair in the cycle with their babies clothes.  
    • If your dog is a shedder, please use sensibility and keep them off areas where hair will be an issue or please clean up their hair before you leave.  Please try at all times to limit your dogs access to tiled or floored areas whenever possible.
    • Owners are responsible for removing any mess in gardens upon vacating the property.  Please respect our housekeepers & future guests by cleaning up your dogs mess - no-one else should have to and I'm sure you agree.

8. It is the guest’s responsibility to determine whether bedding & linen will be supplied with their accommodation based on information contained in the confirmation information.  Please allow at least 5 days notice if you would like AVG to provide linen at your property.
