    My extended family and I stayed at Lauristina Guest House & Spa Cottage in early 2020 for a family reunion.

    The House is simply stunning! Spacious bedrooms (2 with their own ensuite), a fully equipped kitchen with literally everything you could need to cater for large groups, as well as plenty of seating in 2 separate lounge and dining areas. The gardens, verandah and large deck offer plenty of options for relaxing with a book or for just chilling with some wine, cheese and good conversation.

    The Spa Cottage is a hidden gem with everything you need for that romantic getaway.

    Booking couldn’t be easier and Belinda was extremely professional and prompt with any communication.

    I highly recommend Lauristina for an extended stay or just a quick getaway, you will not be disappointed.

    I stayed here with friends and this was perfect holiday accommodation. The house is huge. We all had our own bathroom, which was a massive bonus. The front of the house is the original homestead but it’s very comfortable with ducted heating, comfy beds and TVs in the bedrooms, plus you get your own ensuite. The kitchen has everything you could want if you were going to cook. We didn’t do much cooking but we did enjoy some wines around the open fire. It was really great to stay in this beautiful historic home. I definitely scored some brownie points with my partner booking this place. When we were searching the area we found the pricing really competitive and don’t think the photos do justice as to how fantastic the property is. We will be coming again back once isolation is over.
    I give it five stars.

    Lauristina house was amazing in every way. The host was so helpful and communicative and ensured we had the most fantastic time. The house itself is huge and comfortable and has everything you could ever need. Two bedrooms have their own ensuites and then there is a main bathroom for the other two bedrooms. The living areas were great, as we could sit in from to a fire in the main lounge or relax in the back living area where there are more couches and a great space to hang out. I went with 3 other mums to relax and we certainly achieved that in this house! We walked just down the road to the cafes and general store each day, so location was excellent too. Thanks for a great stay!

    First away from home holiday break after Melbourne Covid-19 lockdown eased was straight to Laurestina. Three generations loved every aspects of the house and decks. Comfy, cosey and sooooo spacious. Elegant understated decor throughout the house with all conveniences. First and lasting impression was “even better than expected” Do note that the resident Kookaburra loves meat and offered bread is ignored with distain

    We had a wonderful five night stay at Lauristina. Just a fantastic place to stay, definitely a home away from home. Central location, a couple of minutes away from everything. We couldn’t have been happier with our beautiful surroundings and everything we needed was readily available. Belinda was great to deal with, we had to change our booking a couple of times due to COVID-19. Would definitely recommend Lauristina for travellers. Gorgeous!

    Lauristina has a good cooking kitchen space for entertaining. One or two cooks only thou. Great amounts of plates bowls, pots, glasses, mugs and pans. There is so many great different spaces to sit, eat and enjoy the company of your fellow guests. The main lounge room has great natural lighting to soak up. The dining area is just adorable and has beautiful personality trust me it is great for impromptu dinner parties. The linen was comfortable, soft and clean. The beds are like a big cuddle – warmy and comforty. The showers are also nice and warmy. Lauristina was very welcoming and all communications with operators were amazing. One note just remember to make sure you leave a car park or two for spa cottage visitors.
