- Melbourne & Sydney respectively,


We loved our stay at the Doll's House almost unreservedly. The cottage was clean and there were little things provided such as walnuts and plenty of lemons from the trees outside. When there was a problem with the barbecue, it was fixed forthwith. The same with dishwashing liquid....more was provided. Just one suggestion though. Make sure the lawn is cut before your guests arrive. It looked a little untidy being so overgrown. Also, the toilet brush in the main bathroom is broken.

- Melbourne,


The Doll's House worked well for two couples. There are two steps needed to get into the cottage. . Porepunkah was very quiet in May; we drove about ten kms into Bright for meals and shopping. The cottage was well equipped, but lacked electric blankets. The reverse cycle heating took awhile to get going, Arriving at night would be very cold. The garden was pretty, with outside seating. Good hot water supply, clean with adequate furniture, and comfortable beds made for an enjoyable stay.
