Hotel Reviews

Airbnb Review – Mancuso Country Cottage, Metcalfe

For my birthday weekend, I wanted to go somewhere with our puppy Zoe. Unfortunately she gets severe car sickness, so where ever we decided we were going to had to be close.

I really love Kyneton, located just over an hour from our home in Melbourne. It is a beautiful, sleepy town with just the right amount on county feel to it.
Piper Street is where the best cafes are, beautiful homewares shops and also houses with their doors painted in bright colours!

So when I found a house located near Kyneton that was dog friendly, I knew that was the place for us!

Pulling up at the house, you are greeted by the most quaint cottage around!

Inside consists of two rooms. A bedroom with fireplace, bar fridge and tv and a 2nd room which is the bathroom.

Although it’s not a 5 star hotel, it is extremely comfortable with everything you could possibly need. Especially in winter, thick blankets on the bed with electric blankets. The cottage also holds heat extremely well.

Some of the neighbours. I took the dog for a walk around the property on our first morning and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw an emu across the road! I thought I was dreaming, there was also an alpaca, sheep and a cow!

An extremely large spa tub was just want I needed! It was huge. Although, I didn’t want to waste water so I only filled it up a little.

The rest of the compact bathroom, again everything you could possibly need. The large sink doubles as a spot to wash any dishes and is large enough to do so.
The mirror is quite high, lucky we are tall-ish! Ha!

How cute are these retro glasses that were in the shack!

The front verandah, with a comfy lounge and a BBQ to the left. We were left with sufficient firewood too, however if we got too low there was more near the back shed.

So many places to sit and ponder, read a book and just take in the fresh country air.

Having a quick photo with my pup, Zoe. She absolutely loved it too, unfortunately we couldn’t let her off the leash as she doesn’t come back when we call her – still training her on that. Plus I wouldn’t want her to scare any of the resident cows.

How cute is my pink hat! I picked that up from Alex Muir in Kyneton. One of the cutest interior shops I have ever been into. Alex is also lovely, well worth a visit!

The pup taking in the little creek down the bottom of the house. So many new smells for her to take in!


This well was built by the Chinese during the gold rush – an amazing piece of history on the land, a pleasant walk down the hill.

Our first Air BnB experience was so easy. We are so grateful for our hosts, who made the stay very comfortable and pleasant. The property was wonderful and I can’t wait to return! Hopefully sooner rather than later!

I had several questions about whether children could stay here, however I don’t think it would be possible as it is just the queen bed and not much room for any additional pullouts etc.

If you would like the link for the property, feel free to reach out. I would be more than happy to share this little slice of heaven.
