Overall Rating 5/5

My partner and I both loved the place so much. All the facilities provided are top-notch and the view outside was spectacular! We’d love to visit again sometime soon!. This is also a great place for those who are interested in star-gazing! There is zero-light pollution around the property, so, on a clear-sky day, you’re most definitely in for a treat! All in all, our stay at Lumella was quite enjoyable, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing and quiet holiday!

Overall Rating 4.5/5

The villa was so clean and had everything you needed for your stay including so you can cook if you want to or take a short walk to the resturants in the area. The spa on the deck was amazing and even though the villa was close to Hepburn Springs centre and not far to Daylesford it felt like you were far away to enjoy the tranquil environment. I would recommend this villa to couples or singles wanting a getaway to relax and rejunivate themselves. I will be back to stay again soon.”

A destination for lovers of nature, architecture and romance! Set on a startlingly beautiful elevation on the sprawling 18-hectare property of Breakneck Gorge, and just minutes from the main street of Daylesford, Oikos was designed as an indulgent retreat from the city.

Named Oikos (pronounced eekos) after the Greek word for dwelling this thrilling retreat was designed and built as a place for love, laughter and peace.

What guests are saying about Breakneck Gorge Oikos:
Overall Rating 5/5

We absolutely loved our stay in the beautiful Oikos property. We experienced a rollercoaster of weather during our 4 day stay, and Oikos was the perfect retreat for all of them. We received a lovely warm greeting on arrival from one of the owners, and then were welcomed each day and evening by about 50 friendly kangaroos. The property felt so quiet and private, and the views were uninterrupted – we saw incredible sunsets. I could have relaxed all day on the daybed, or just lounged around in every immaculate room. From the stunning architecture to the incredibly tasteful details in the finishes and furnishings such as Japanese tiles, a fully equipped kitchen, the huge windows… there is nothing to fault. Highly recommend Oikos to any couples wanting a relaxing and unique getaway.”
