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 Carmel turned on the heat for us already before we arrived. We requested to check-in a bit early at around noon and Carmel allowed us to do so. Carmel responded to my emails very quickly which we could ask for help anytime when needed. The whole place was spacious and cosy. Carmel prepared some instant breakfast, bread and milk for us. We appreciated very much the coffee machine, the well equipped kitchen, the BBQ stove and the big screen TVs in the living room and the bedroom. The neighbourhood is very safe and quiet. There are supermarkets and some pizza places nearby. It takes around 30-35 mins to the wineries in Yarra Junction, Healesville, Warburton which we found it actually quite convenient. All in all, the whole stay was comfortable like home and pleasant and we would go back again if we go to Yarra Valley again. Thank you Carmel for hosting us!

Everything!! Carmel was especially lovely, welcoming and extremely hospitable. The location, size and amenities of the villa were perfect for our prep for my wedding. The villa has a beautiful style and is very spacious and comfortable. The gorgeous furnishings, touches of warmth and organic produce just added something extra special to our stay.

Hi Carmel
I keep meaning to review your wonderful accommodation! We will be down again later in the year, Louis is playing at Heritage again  so will book in soon.
Yourself and Mario are amazing hosts and nothing was too much trouble- from the warm welcome, to your concern when Louis was ill and the wonderful chicken broth to help his cold. Baringa is a gem of a place to stay in the region and we will be back!
Since we saw you in April, Louis has won Brookwater Golf and Country Club Junior Champion this weekend and is now in the Golf Queensland Junior Squad, had an age division win in Sydney couple of weeks ago too, so doing well and still loving his golf J Handicap is 2, which was his goal- 2 before he turns 13 .
We are off to USA tomorrow for the Callaway World Junior, San Diego Junior Masters and then to Florida for a week’s holiday , and then Pinehurst for the USKG World Champs.
Louis’ facebook page will have all the results
Hope you are well, and thanks so much for the interest in Louis,
Kind rgds

Hi Carmel & Mario,
How could I notice (not 100% complete) when I was presented with a huge ‘WOW’ factor as I walked into “Baringa Villa” for the first time? I was just blown away by the practical design of your B&B along with how beautiful it presented. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy the level of comfort & 5 Star Quality of your workmanship but while staying there I couldn’t get over how quiet it was. In fact I found it soooo quiet that I almost lost track of time. Luckly I set the alarm to remind me of the time each morning, as I couldn’t hear anyone or any cars driving by. I hope that I can drop in and stay again some time soon as my stay at “Baringa Villa” was certainly one to remember as one of the most pleasant stays anywhere. Carmel & Mario, you should both be very proud of what you have created and the level quality that you have both built into this B&B for everyone to enjoy when they choose to stay there.
Yours sincerely,

Tom von Eitzen, Queensland
