Fantastic place to stay! Highly recommend! Very secluded, very peaceful, crazy beautiful view, spacious front yard, loved the fireplace, shower was perfect! At night you can see the stars so clearly. 15-20 min drive to nearest shops. We would definitely come back here again!!

Hi Tony,

What a simply beautiful place you have there - peace personified. The house is lovely and excellently equipped.

The forecast was for a considerable amount of rain but we were blessed with glorious weather apart from a little rain as we were driving there. Consequently we spent much time sitting on the veranda and having breakfast and lunch out there. Wrens, swallows,  black cockatoos, many honeyeaters, a grey shrike thrush and an eagle kept us company. We were impressed with the bank of shrubbery behind the house - a lovely mixture and providing total privacy. We hiked the Moonlight track at Mt Worth - what a climb back up to the ridge! Saw and heard lots of lyre birds. More walks along Grand Ridge Road and a nice chat with Carol and her two Jack Russells.

Best of all was the glorious view with its ever changing colours and shadows, early morning mist in the valley, and during the night mist right up to the edge of the lawn, and a night sky to behold. We each had some work to do and Katherine needed some space to sort out job issues, so it was a perfect environment for us to relax and talk things through. It was just lovely.

It is quite something to let your own home to strangers, so we do thank you very much for sharing your special place. It's high on the agenda for another visit as is Flinders Island. 

With best wishes to you and Linda,


Judy and Katherine



Hi tony and Linda,

We just wanted to say THANK YOU! Our weekend away was perfect.. It was a magical spot :) words can't describe that view. It was like looking at a painted picture. We look forward to coming back and have already started making plans to look at heading to flinders island so hopefully we can stay at your other property.

Thanks once again,

Tash and Luke



Hi Tony and Linda,

Thank you very much for your wonderful accommodation. We enjoyed it very much. Particularly the views.

One day we would like to try your other place if you let us.

Many thanks again and very best regards.

Vadim and Olesya



Hi Tony,

 Thanks for the use of your house at Hallston, I hope we have left it in a way that suits you. 

It is a beautiful house with magnificent views and is a credit to yourself and your wife in how it is presented.

 If I ever need accommodation in that area again I will definitely be in contact with you again.

 The house on Flinders island looks very tempting and if I ever travel there I will be staying atthere no doubt

 Thanks again  

Chris, Lyn, Wayne and Linda



Hi Tony

Just arrived home after our wonderful 3 nights at Grand Ridge. The house was a delight and the serenity much needed. The views were amazing and we spent many an hour watching as they changed. The weather was perfect for us. Two days of bright blue sky and two days cloudy with rain - so we got the best of both worlds. 

We will definitely be back at some stage. And now have your Flinders Island property on our "one day" list. 

I hope you also get to spend time at grand ridge when you aren't working. It must be  a wonderful place to retreat to. 

Kristen and John



It was fantastic Tony, thank you, you have a beautiful property. Everything was perfect. 


Hi Tony

We have settled in at home now (with difficulty after our visit to your amazing property). 

We were transfixed by the view, from anywhere, from the front veranda, from the lawn, or inside looking out. I usually read a lot when I am away but this time I would take my book outside for a read only to find myself some time later staring at the view without a word read.

We have stayed at quite a few B&B's in the area, but yours takes the cake.

Regards Garry


Hello Tony,

Thank you very much for sharing Grand Ridge with us.

We totally loved the gorgeous sweeping view, cozy wood burner and some local wine and cheese. Everything was smooth going, no dramas, and we had such a peaceful, relaxing an restful time, which is a real luxury when your default life is a hectic one in the city. Beautiful region too. We'll definitely be returning in the future.

Thank you again and hope to get in touch again in the future.

Best regards,

Hi Tony & Linda

We immensely enjoyed our stay at your property this weekend.  It is such a cosy house and so peaceful and secluded.  It was everything we were hoping for and we left feeling most relaxed and rejuvenated.

Thank you for all the clear instructions and for providing all the comforts of home for us.

Eva & Nic 

Thank you Tony and Linda for allowing us to spend such wonderful moments in your beautiful house surrounded by amazing sights and peaceful atmosphere.  We're very happy we came here.

Thank you Niall and Rocio.

Hello Tony and Linda, 

Well thank you for a delightful stay. Tom really enjoyed your fabulous views, privacy and comfortable get-away for his birthday. Me too. Tom and I have stayed at two other places in West Gippsland in the past 18 months. We enjoy the area and its proximity for 'after work access', and both BnB's were great so it is why Tom had suggested the area again for his birthday celebration. I asked him last night which of the three he would choose to return to and he said without a doubt yours. So it was a great hit.

 Hi Tony & Linda,

Our brief stay at the Grand Ridge was beautiful and peaceful. 
I would like to congratulate you both on such a well maintained and pleasurable accommodation.
It was extremely easy to find and everything was there to make our stay easy and carefree.
We unfortunately did not get to see any Koalas but did however have a very nice chat to a couple of cows, very inquisitive bunch of bulls they are and there were a lot of chatty birds. The weather was good but I was really hoping for a clear night to bring in the fog in the morning but alas it was not to be.
We can’t wait to return to the Grand Ridge during winter, hopefully while there is a snow dump as I am sure the hills and valley will look amazing.
Once again thank you as I know it was all on very short notice. But it really worked out well for us as the accommodation we would normally go to was book out and with that we were able to find this little piece of beauty. Your property is now on our top 3 romantic getaways.
Many Thanks
Danielle & Ralph.

Grand Ridge was just the best. 
For many reasons it was just wonderful. In fact it was so good, if ever you want to sell it please let us know.
Will contact you soon  
Peter and Jenny. 

Hi Tony,
We are looking forward to staying at Grand Ridge again, we have stayed at many holiday houses around Vic. and although some say they are set in a private location, they never seem to deliver the peace and quite and solitude that we experienced at Grand Ridge last time this is one of the main reasons we are returning.
Regards Russell & Nicole  

Hi Tony & Linda,
We had such a relaxing time.
Your place is beautiful and so peaceful. Everything was perfect couldn't have asked for anything more. I have recommend your place to a few friends who tend to go away here and there for the weekend so I'll remind them when they are looking for a place to book. Thanks again for everything.

Hi Tony, 
We had a great time at Grand Ridge. Thanks for the opportunity to stay in such a beautiful location. Everything went really well - your house and property exceeded our expectations. One morning we woke up to a beautiful fog in the valley and on New Years Eve, there was a natural fireworks display - what a vantage point for a storm! 
Mandy & Simon

Dear Tony and Linda,
What a remarkable place! We didn't want to leave :-) I must say one of the best places we have ever stayed at!
Thank you for sharing such an amazing place in a beautiful part of the world!
Cheers and thanks
Bill and Sarah

Hi Tony and Linda,
What a wonderful property you have. Our stay surpassed all expectations (a rarity this day and age!) and very welcomed. We loved the peace and quiet, the views and the proximity to Melbourne - exactly what we were looking for. Needless to say we will be visiting again when we need another fix.
John and Janine

Hello Tony and Linda,
Well to quote a famous line "Ah the Serenity".
We immediately felt ourselves relax when walking in the door - the scenery was just superb, even when there was no view due to fine misty rain. Just loved the absolute quietness and the fire and thoroughly enjoyed only listening to birds and the occasional moo.
We will definitely recommend the property to others.
Thank you for making your place available to stay in as it certainly met our expectations and we hope to return one day.
Pieter and Margaret

Thank you Tony - it is beautiful you don't want to part with it I presume ;).
Mike has been lovely and mowed the lawns, we found it with no problems and love your photo board. Thank you all for being so accommodating!
