Escape to our new Timber-lined designer North-facing Studio, and experience Warrandyte's tranquility and views - continental breakfast included of course - with your very own private viewing deck. 

Views, sunshine, Espresso, billiards, river walks/swims - I'm sure you'll have a magical stay!
We designed our baby from scratch with pure enjoyment and comfort in mind.

The Space

Bright, open, and cozy. Panoramic, frameless double-glazed windows give you unbroken views of the valley to the North to enjoy in pure privacy, while the warmth of the beautiful Siberian Larch flooring permeates through your feet. The back of the studio is cut directly into the rock, giving you the perfect temperature and sound isolation all-year-round.

Take in the views of the nearby valley as you relax with your morning Nespresso style coffee on the sun-soaked deck. Make a day out of the most sought-after corners of the Yarra River, and relax or float in the sun at our local swimming spot.
Don't miss the chance to experience Victoria's best wineries and tastings, less than 10 minutes drive. Or a little further out to the beautiful Yarra Valley.



We have never had a guest mention a lack of privacy, but for your peace of mind:
Rest assured that any of your privacy concerns will wash away upon arrival. Yes, the studio is 'architecturally' part of a main house above (set back and further above on the hill), but it is entirely separate in the sense that it has it's own private entrance that is in front of the main house (no need to pass any main-house windows), and it is cut into the rock UNDER the main house, meaning the only accessible part of the main house that comes close to the studio is the deck on top of the studio (which is typically not used during any Guest stays). Most guests don't even see Andrew after check-in unless they need something since there is only bush and views, visible from the studio - meaning you also can't peer into the studio (one-way looking glass in daylight). You can quite literally, (loudly even) sneak in- and out without a trace.

Guest access

All interior space in the studio is accessible. The studio is situated in the front underside of the main house. Guests will be able to access most of the outdoor garden areas of the property in the immediate surroundings of the studio, as well as the entire west (carpark) and north gardens. The billiards table in the Games room is also accessible, but it is a functioning workshop too, so guests must be extra careful to not tamper with any of the equipment in there for their own safety.


From AUD$125 per night average. (No cleaning fees)

Payable 50% deposit to secure booking.

Balance 7 days prior to arrival.

The Neighbourhood

Andrew’s home is located in North Warrandyte, Victoria, Australia.

Warrandyte is now the most in-demand suburb in the whole of Australia, and it's no wonder why. It's tranquil and natural charm, coupled with it's the vibing atmosphere in the main streets invoke thoughts of an elusive holiday destination, yet it's only a 26-minute drive from Box Hill or a 40 min drive to the CBD and Melbourne airport.
Warrandyte is unique because it is so close to metropolitan life and it's associated amenities, yet situated in such a picturesque location untouched by development, and next to two gems of Melbourne's fun and entertainment - the Yarra River, and the Yarra Valley wine region.

Getting around

"Pound Bend" - The studio itself sits in one of the most prestigious locations along the entire Yarra River in Melbourne - atop the famous 'Pound Bend'. Pound Bend is the name given to the stretch of the river that turns back on itself so much that it almost meets up with itself again - and it does - since 1870, there has been a tunnel connecting to the river back to itself, meaning you can literally, float downstream for 2 hrs, and return to the exact same spot.

The beautiful Yarra River and swimming area is a short 10-minute walk from the apartment.
The rural but busting Warrandyte township a 5-minute drive, and the fabulous countryside and countless wineries of the Yarra Valley are a short 30-minute drive away.

-40 mins from Melbourne CBD and about same from the Airport by car.
- From Warrandyte central, the 906 Bus will take you to the CBD, and the 579 Bus outside our street will take you to the 906 Bus stop.
- Ample and safe parking available on the property.
