Expansive and stylish - this beautiful modern Country House just 3kms from Olinda Village in the Dandenong Ranges offers you the gift of beauty, space and time to be at peace with each other in nature. 10 acres of exceptional gardens are the setting for this elegant house where you can come alone or bring your friends and family to enjoy a time of just being together, celebrating the joy of friendship and special occasions.

Nestled in the town of Olinda is Beechmont Garden Retreat, a 10 acre property belonging to Cherrie Miriklis-Pavlou owner of Melbourne's Flowers Vasette in inner-city Fitzroy.

Straight out of the pages of Country Style guests are greeted by an eclectic mix of plush upholstered seating, bright cushions, bold wallpaper, gorgeous artwork and an abundant display of flowers and greenery. All of which works together to fashion the perfect modern retreat rich with tactile soft furnishings that creates a cosy and user-friendly space.

With four generous bedrooms, two king and two queen, Beechmont is the perfect entertaining retreat for intimate occasions, large groups or for those wanting to just kick back and enjoy the ‘serenity’ as every room has a view of the stunning gardens.

An outdoor lounge and dining area is the perfect spot for sundowners or for a casual BBQ. And a large, modern kitchen with two separate internal dining areas makes the property usable in any season.

Wandering about the garden and the interiors of Beechmont is a wonderful sensory experience – a heady mix of colour, fragrance and natural texture. From its reflective pond to its mature trees Beechmont is both a magical and an unforgettable experience.

Map & Directions

12 Mernda Rd, Olinda VIC 3788, Australia


Reception is at our Valley Ranges Getaways office at 361-363 Mount Dandenong Tourist Rd Sassafras. Our phone number is 1300 48 84 48.

If you are travelling from Melbourne city, choose either the Monash Freeway or Eastlink.

Monash Freeway, turn off at Ferntree Gully Road (9), and come up to the Burwood Highway (22), head towards the hill, go under the railway bridge and take the left branch up the Mt Dandenong Tourist Road (C415) for 12 kms to Olinda Village.

When you come through Sassafras, 3kms further to Olinda, you will veer left as you come to the shops, then turn immediately right down Monash Avenue, past the Olinda Pharmacy. Candlelight Cottages are 500 meters (3 speed humps) down Monash Avenue on your right. Park in the first car park at 9 Monash Avenue.

If coming via Eastlink, please follow Eastlink to Burwood Highway (22), then follow the directions above.

BEWARE of GPS directions they may well take you the shortest route, which could bring you up the steep wobbly Basin Olinda Road which is an unmade road. Everyone who does this looks traumatised. We want you to be certain and relaxed!
