Reviewed 10 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bella Casa Blue. The accomodation is ideally located, very clean, and has many very nice features, including several suprises that made our stay relaxing and fun. It is much larger than it looks in the photos and very suitable for a family with two children or two couples etc. The cottage is a short bike ride or walk into town (the bike path is directly in front of the property). The owners were very friendly and helpful. We highly reccomend this place.

“Expectations met and nearly all exceeded”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Booked a 3 night stay here as a first choice after reviewing other accommodation available in Halls Gap. It is, as others state, an excellent place to stay with everything you may need for a holiday break ( well nearly everything in our case). There were some surprising extras such as: binoculars, an umbrella, candles/ matches in the bathroom for that special spa, and not just in an ordinary but a in quality spa tub. For those that like to enjoy a BBQ there is also a patio heater if the evening is a little cool.

Perhaps the most pertinent comment came from my wife. She said the bed was comfortable. In all the years we have travelled this was a first.

Sadly, a few little things prevent us from saying this was an absolute top property.

The first is the steel steps that you must use to enter from the front of the property. One of the steps retained water on the surface above the tread pattern for quiet some time making it a little slippery, while the other steps were dry. It does not always drain away.

The LED lighting in the lounge/dining/kitchen area is some what "surgical" , that is, as bright as lights in an operating theatre. There are no dimmable lights to create that special mood. There was a (non dimmable) lamp but the bulb was blown.

If you venture on the back dirt roads to look at the wild flowers or Aboriginal rock art / shelters your vehicle (windows/lights/etc) will either become dusty or muddy. There was no hose or suitable bucket to rinse this off.

And finally, there were no forms to report the maintenance issues or suggestions so we had to find something to write on.

The only reason I persisted was the this is an excellent place to stay and there was a strong possibility that what we experienced was an aberration and not the onset of complacency. The owner ( who has since contacted me) seems very proactive.

Thank you for your review. All the issues that were raised will or have already been addressed. Hose and bucket is now in place, light globe changed, holes redrilled out in metal step to let the water get away (were blocked)and more maintenance forms put in place.

Highly recommend BCB, has everything even the kitchen sink. Only one little thing would be extra towels as we stayed 3 nights. Nice walk into town & the sights are great.

“A beautiful home in a beautiful place ”
Reviewed 31 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Oh my goodness! Gone are the days where you had to take everything plus the kitchen sink to a holiday rental! We loved this place.

Everything you need is provided for right here. There's even a TV that pops up at the foot of your beds. The house was well appointed and we were impressed that the hosts called us to make sure everything was ok.

The area is serene and there's lots of activities for everyone. We enjoyed staying in this wonderful home and we will be back

“Had everything for a perfect break”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Loved this place. Very thoughtfully well equipped and very cosy. We stayed for 4 nights and felt at home from the minute we arrived. Close enough to be able to walk into Hall's Gap but far enough to have peace and quiet. Will definitely return.
