Sunny studio apartment on a rural property with views of the lemon orchard, swimming pool and mountains. Private back-deck with external clawfoot bath so you can bathe under the stars or take in the mountains . Enjoy the sounds of the birds and the countryside whilst being only a five minute drive from Healesville restaurants and Yarra Valley wineries. Pick your own lemons and herbs to enjoy during your stay.
The Pool house studio is a light and airy self-contained apartment at the back of our swimming pool garden. The front veranda looks over the pool and the private back deck is nestled in the lemon orchard with views over the hills. If you would like to bathe under the stars there is a clawfoot bath on the back deck.
The studio has two rooms: one room has a king-size bed and an ensuite bathroom which has a shower and vanity. The other room has a small kitchenette with fridge, microwave, kitchen sink and living area. The kitchen has cooking utensils, toaster, coffee plunger and a single induction plate if you want to cook a simple meal. There is also a small electric BBQ on the back-deck. The day bed in this room can be used as a single bed if there are two guests who want separate sleeping arrangements or a third person. There is a small TV in the bedroom and a TV/DVD player in the living area.
The property itself consists of 13 acres with extensive gardens, orchards and vegetable patch. You are welcome to help yourselves to lemons to use during your stay and any herbs growing in the garden and we provide you with continental breakfast provisions
Guests can park their car next to the studio and access the property from either the front or back veranda. The swimming pool area is a shared space and the back veranda is a private area for guests using the studio. Guests are welcome to enjoy the grounds and the many spaces available for picnics including down at the large dam.

Our house is adjacent to the pool house studio and we are available to give tips on the area or leave you with as much privacy as you desire. We have another house on the other side of the property which is used as guest accommodation. We also provide some written guests notes that give our recommendations for places to eat and visit in the Yarra Valley. Our two dogs (a golden retriever and spaniel ) live on the property and generally form part of a welcoming party when guests arrive.
Annat att notera
Guests in the main guest house on the other side of the property may occasionally use the pool during the day in the summer. (We only take one booking at a time in the other accommodation so other guest usage would be restricted to one couple/ family or small group of friends.) If you are looking for a larger space or want to share with friends ask us about this option. The studio is not suitable for guests with young children given the proximity to the pool.
The studio is a no-smoking space inside. Smoking is fine on the veranda or back deck.
We expect guests to leave the studio in good order and wash any dishes used.
We ask Pool House Studio guests to respect the privacy of the Lavender Farm House guests.
Given the proximity to the swimming pool this accommodation is not suitable for guests travelling with young children. Babies who are not mobile and older children are fine.
Talk to us if you want to bring your dog.
