Alkira is a great place for a family holiday. Conveniently located mid-way between the Dandenong Ranges and the Yarra Valley there are plenty of things to do for youngsters of all ages. The cottages are spacious and carefully designed to be child friendly whilst still having good quality furnishings and attractive décor.
There is plenty of room to run around outside and there are plenty of places to explore around the property to keep the young people amused between outings. The optional garden spas are popular with older children.
Each cottage has its own, private garden spa, located in a gazebo and set in a hidden, landscaped garden, making them usable right throughout the year. There is no finer experience than a hot steaming spa, on a brilliantly moonlit, cold, frosty night.
It is a delight to luxuriate in front of the fireplace and the visitors book is full of generous comments about the ambience of the cottages. As each cottage has its own, well equipped kitchen, there is no need to venture out at all.
Alkira is the ideal place to getaway with friends. Each of the cottages will accommodate six people comfortably and they ideally located for the Yarra Valley wineries as well as the many galleries and tea rooms of the Dandenongs. The little township of Gembrook has several places to eat. A visit to Forest Edge Restaurant five minutes drive from us - is a treat. Alternatively the kitchens are sufficiently well equipped to allow lovely meals to be prepared at home which means that nobody has to drive. Each cottage also has it’s own, large garden with a bbq and large picnic table overlooking the view.
The private, six-seater, garden spa is a real winner with our guests, a wonderful, social way to spend an evening. Located in a gazebo they are designed to be an all-weather, all-seasons facility and enjoyable even on the coldest winter night.
