Wake up to beautiful birdsong in peace and quiet

Sian | 23rd October 2023

Lovely place where you wake up to birdsong, drive to local towns are lovely but equally nice to just stay inside the cottage which is very comfortable and well equipped with all you need.

Relaxing Stanley visit

Murray | 8th May 2023

We had a wonderful stay at the Stanley Hideaway, so much so that we extended our visit. It was such a peaceful, quiet setting and Ron and Diane were wonderful hosts. The cottage is very spacious and extremely comfortable and we were nice and cosy when the temperature dropped. We will definitely stay here again.

Lovely Dog Friendly Accommodation

Julie | 7th April 2023

Loved our stay, the accommodation was very good, everything you need for a short stay and the tranquility of the Stanley area. We met Ron and Barry the new puppy, very cute.Frank our puppy loved being there but would had loved to run around a little, (a little off lead area would have been perfect).Also the chooks were happy and friendly, I wished I had known about their eggs before arriving.Overall had very pleasant stay and would recommend to any couples with a dog or not.

Lynnette | 23rd March 2023

Stanley Hideaway was perfect for us. We couldn’t fault a thing, it was clean, comfortable and in a nice quiet location in a pretty garden. Diane, Ron and Dora (the dog) were very friendly and helpful with their knowledge of the local area. We would recommend the Hideaway to anyone wishing to stay in the area.Lynnette and Rex

Beautiful and Peaceful

Emily | 9th March 2023

The location is beautiful and so peaceful. Perfect place to base yourself and explore the surrounding region. Love that it is pet friendly - so accommodating for a four-month old puppy. Nothing was too much trouble.

Perfect little hideaway!

Rachel | 23rd December 2022

Perfect little hideaway! Bub loved the chickens and pups. Thanks so much Ron!


Juliana | 15th September 2022

Stanley Hideaway was the perfect destination for a much needed wind-down. The cottage was light, spacious and had everything we needed, surrounded by beautiful garden with camelias and daphne all in bloom. No traffic noise at all, just the songs of the huge variety of birds. Only a 7 minute drive into Beechworth which was buzzing due to the public holidays and so glad we could retire out of town on this gorgeous property.

True Piece of Paradise

Jo | 4th August 2022

This is truly a piece of paradise;Just perfect for a weekend or short stay away. Close enough to Beechworth without being in the 'thick of it'. We loved it. Our host was wonderful.

Brilliant Hideaway

Cristie | 20th December 2021

Brilliant hideaway a short and pleasant drive just outside of Beechworth. Ron and Diane were perfect hosts, providing perhaps the cleanest Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in, as well as some excellent tips and recommendations. They were patient and considerate with our two small dogs and we can’t rate their accommodation highly enough. We’ll definitely stay again in the future.

Absolutely fantastic stay

Kimberley | 11th December 2021

The place is nice and big so very comfortable for the two of us plus our dog. It was really clean and had everything inside that we needed. It's in a beautiful quiet part of Stanley surrounded by gardens and farm land. 2 min drive to Stanley Pub that had awesome food and 5-7 min drive into Beechworth. Would love to visit again and would recommend to anyone.

Quiet & Secluded

Glenn | 22nd November 2021

Quiet and secluded location with nice gardens. The hosts (and Dora the dog) looked after us and our dog, Monty, very well. Stanley was surprisingly quaint with a great little pub for dinner. The cabin was larger than expected and very well appointed. Had all you needed.

Beautiful & Peaceful

Stuart | 21st November 2021

A beautiful place in the middle of the countryside. A very peaceful and comfortable stay. It is so relaxing to sit outside in the morning or evening and take in the sound of the bird life.

Lovely Property

Caitlin | 4th November 2021

Lovely property - well equippedThanks for a great stay

Beautiful Property

Cameron | 23rd October 2021

A beautiful room at the rear of a beautiful property with delightful gardens. At night the trees are lit up to really show them off. So close to the centre of town and everything that Beechworth has to offer. Thank you that was awesome. Your property is a delight.

A lovely place

Cathy | 15th October 2021

Thanks for a lovely stay. Friendly hosts (human and canine) keen to provide everything we could need, without imposing. Great quiet location for exploring the area.

Just so lovely

Honey | 12th October 2021

Ron and Diane’s place is just so lovely. The house is very spacious and clean, and had everything I needed for 4 days. The electric heated mattress pad is heavenly! I turned it on for a few minutes when I got cold in the middle of the night (I live in Sydney I’m easily cold!). Otherwise there’s also an AC/heater. The outside space is big, green, with amazing bird life. There’s also a BBQ and a fire pit but I didn’t use them. Their beautiful dog Dora is such a sweetheart! She came to say hi and sat next to me at the porch whilst I read. There was a complimentary candle from Diane, that was a nice touch! Beechworth town centre is a 15min bike ride / 10min drive. I’d love to go back and stay here again, and explore more of high country with my bike! Thank you again!
