Florence – Daylesford

6   3   2

Florence really makes you think twice about where you might want to spend a summer getaway. The pool surrounded by travertine tiles, the spa and hot rock sauna are just the start. Inside is just as amazing and luxurious in its finish and style. The combination of privacy and a resort-like feel is very unique in Daylesford. You could be anywhere in the world but Florence is right here in Melbourne’s back yard waiting for you to set your towel down and plunge into that pool.

What guests are saying about Lake Daylesford Apartments:
Average of all apartments 4/5

Lake Daylesford Apartments are beautifully outfitted, clean and very comfortable for a couple. We have stayed in Apartment 2A and more recently for 10 nights in Apartment 2. All apartments have a balcony with a view of the lake and surrounding trees. The ground floor – or street level – has minimal steps. We highly recommend this accommodation property.

Rest and recoup here at this lovely shady location minutes from the main part of town. Sit under the trees or melt away your cares soaking in the 6 person Jacuzzi. The well-equipped kitchen, BBQ area and casual living spaces mean the family will be happy hanging out all summer.

Lovely modern property with all the amenities excluding wifi. Great deck and pleased the jacuzzi had warm water. Be prepared for early morning visits by the local wildlife with a family of kangaroos appearing early evenings and late afternoons.

Cooinda – Trentham

That pool has summer holidays written all over it! A home with it all, Cooinda is the ultimate family summer holiday house that also features a floodlit tennis court, basketball ring and an inbuilt trampoline. And that’s just the start. Undercover BBQ area, bikes, balls, golf clubs, the list goes on. When you can tear yourself away from the fun outdoors, the cool and casual sophistication of the interiors will have the adults pleased too.

Overall Rating 4.6/5

Cooinda is a stunning retreat. Well located within walking distance to the lovely township of Trentham, yet far enough away to enjoy peace. With a pool, spa, tennis court, inground trampoline, table tennis, bikes and golf moments away Cooinda is the perfect escape for families or friends wanting to reconnect and have a luxury base to explore the region.

I would definitely recommend Cornish Hill House to friends and hope to visit again.
