My husband and I fell in love with this property from the very first time we saw it! There was just something special about it. Set on over ½ an acre, the pool surrounded by trees due to the nature reserve at the back, the beautiful established trees and so much more. That was over 14 years ago now. It’s welcoming, has beautiful views to both the Dandenong’s and the Yarra Valley area and is nestled in a quiet no-through road. It’s light and airy and the many windows enable the garden to come indoors. When friends or guest stay they all comment on the tranquility of the place and how they could just sit, linger, and enjoy the peace and calm. We both love people and sharing our wisdom and knowledge. Given that our home is now bigger than we required! Most importantly, that we were able to easily create a very private space for the Villa. This got us thinking!
Why don’t we create a space for others to hire and come and stay?
So with the guidance of a friend we began our project and we had our first guest say on 28th November 2013.
It has been such an enjoyably creative project. Each step was taken with loving care for both the pleasure and comfort of our guests. Be it for a short or long term stay. Baringa Villa is in a leafy green part of Croydon North. It is easy to find and is very central.
It is 10 minutes from the Eastern Freeway.
20 minutes drive from the famous Yarra Valley region.
25 minutes drive from The Dandenongs, William Rickets Sanctuary and the many Tea Houses and fun shopping.
And 45mins drive from Warburton.
Close to shops and a 4 min walk to public transport.
40 mins from Melbourne CBD
Is being athletic and energetic your thing?
We are 20 minutes drive from the 1000 steps, the many nature walks through the Dandenongs as well as the Tree Adventure at Glen Harrow Adventure Park. We are also 15 minutes drive from the Warburton walking and bike trail in Mt Evenly where you can hire pushbikes. Warrandyte & the Yarra river is also 15 minutes drive away. Offering lots of great walks as well as kayaking.
Baringa Villa is just like home! We stayed there for 3 nights. The host, Carmel, was very nice and helpful. It was quite cold and raining when we arrived and...
