Great environment. Quiet and serene.”
I absolutely loved Sanctuary Park Cottages. We stay there during the Winter season, and when we arrived they had the log fire going so it was nice, warm and toasty inside even though it was chilly and raining outside. First thing we did was make a cup of tea and sit outside on the verandah to take in our surroundings. We are from the city so it was nice to take some time out and enjoy a bit a piece and quiet. The accommodation itself and was clean, neat and they really made an effort to ensure that you have all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay. The cottages were just around the corner from Healesville Sanctuary and a 5 minute drive to the Healesville town centre. The owners were very helpful too and they have DVD's and old school board games available for use at no extra charge. Have already recommended this place to my colleagues...I will be staying here again.
The cottage is perfect for a getaway. The location is really near Healesville Sanctuary, and we stayed for 2 nights. The cottage was really nice and private. Comes with a living area, kitchen (fully equipped), laundry, 2 bedrooms, and a huge bathroom with jacuzzi. The large bed had heaters which came in handy at night. Bed was comfy and blanket was so warm! The whole cottage was very clean. I was also glad to find bug spray in case any large insects got into the house (fortunately the largest insect I encountered was just ants). There are goats and rabbits in the cottage that you can feed. There’s a Swimming pool, bbq pit as well as playground for kids. I would really love to stay here again!
Looking a little tired.”
We have been going to Sanctuary Park on and off for a number of years.While the location is peaceful and relaxing and the cottages are still comfortable they are looking a little tired, especially around the veranda and cottage fence area. Would not prevent us from going back, but it would be nice to see them as they used to be.

Feels like home”
We stayed in a 2-bedroom cottage during the winter season. The cottage is very quiet and private. It has everything you need, including washer and dryer, fully-equipped kitchen. Breakfast includes milk, bread, cereal, butter and jam. There is heater is every room including the living area. Coles supermarket is just a short drive out and Healesville sanctuary is also nearby. We hope to stay there again on our next visit :)
We loved it!”
It is not centrally located in heart of the town. if you are choosing cottage, u generally prefer quietness and privacy more than others. There is well-equipped kitchen, would be good for u to prepare the food before you check in and enjoy the rest of your day in cottage or like us, we ordered delivery. The owner has built up some friendship and linked up with few restaurants/shops. We ordered pizza, fried chicken and spaghetti. our 1 night stay was satisfied with good food, DVDs we got from owner, the in-house spa and comfy bed!
Cosy, secluded cottage, close to Healesville”
Roomy cottage, all amenities provided. Beautiful property. Very friendly. helpful staff. We had an issue during the evening with the hot water and they went out of their way to try to fix it. When that was not possible they provided us with alternative facilities. I would definitely recommend this accomodation, especially for family groups.
Hi Debra, Thank you for your kind words about our property we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. It was lovely to meet you and we look forward to seeing you again hopefully in the near future. Kind Regards, Sanctuary Park Cottages Team
It's a great place to stay if you would like to visit Healsville Sanctuary”
The location is superb if you would like to visit Healsville Sanctuary ( a zoo) it is 3 mins drive to Healsville Sanctuary. The picture on the internet is a little exaggerated. The lake Isn't as big and impressive as in the picture. However it is a nice cozy cottage. Recommended to visit Oakridge winery and Yarra Valley chocolaterie and ice creamery
very spacious, clean and comfortable ”
Very spacious for both the cottage itself, as well as the space around the cottage. Rooms are clean and comfortable, fully equipped with kitchen utensil, suitable for family with children.
Beautiful Surroundings, Hares, Goats and a Sheep”
Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay. The gardens are good fun for kids to run around, lots of hares, goats and a sheep. The rooms were clean and cottage full of character. The playground was limited with alot of cobwebs and can be improved. Overall, good value for money and the location is a great base to visit healsville and a couple of wineries.
Beautiful but room not warm enough for cooler days”
Cosy cottage with simple amenities. Scenic with mountain views, calm lake and vast space to stroll and kids to run. Quiet and peaceful. Cottage is cosy and clean. During early september, the fire place is beautiful but doesn't really warm up the place. No room heater available so we were still chilly in the room. Only one bed has the warmer which is nice but not the other two single beds in the other room so it it's quite cold. Nice place to roam around the area.
Spent a night here. Did not spend much time in the lodge to really appreciate it. However I was overwhelmed by the hospitality by the host as they provided free loaf of white bread, cereals and a whole bottle of milk. The rooms and toilet were clean. Their toilet were the most comfortable and clean among all the 6 hotels and lodges I stayed during my whole Victoria Trip. The toilet layout and facilities was really top notch, the water pressure from the shower was very good. If only I spent more nights here that I could really enjoy the hotel premises and the toilet better.
Hi Kheng, Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and found everything clean and comfortable. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip. Kind Regards The Sanctuary Park Cottages Team
Cosy cottage away from hustle and bustle of city”
Nicely furnished Victorian style cottage. Cosy and warm, could br better with additional bathroom though.
Love the cottage very much ! Will be back again
Value for money ”
Nice cottage with personal touches like fresh bread when we arrived. A bit deep in and dark as we arrived about 7pm on a winter day but very cosy. Recommend for a cottage stay
Hi Kaizar, Thank you for taking time to review our property. I have passed on your feed back to our owners. Thank you this helps us to grow as a property and guides us to ensure all our guests needs are met. Thanks again and we hope to see you again. Kind Regards Kaisey
Booked for wedding anniversary, somewhere off the beaten track, this is exactly what we got. No traffic or any other noises except for the resident wildlife. This was the best spot within 60 minutes of Melbourne that we have experienced. The town of Healesville has a lot to offer as well-plenty of cafes, wineries & distillery all within 10 mins. Will definitely be going back!
Hi Paul, Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. We are glad you enjoyed your stay here with us and we look forward to seeing you again! Kind Regards The Sanctuary Park Cottages Team

Better Than Expectation”
it definitely feels good to wake up in the morning to be greeted by the "galloping" goats, a shy looking sheep, busy bunnys digging its holes all over the field...it's a great pleasure to stay and we felt is too short for two nights.....hope to be back again soon....
Its absolutely perfect! Heaven on earth do yourself a favour and book it in. Spent 3 days and didnt even go anywhere stay in the loft worth every dollar amazing will definitely come back
Beautiful place to stay for couples or families. Gorgeous surroundings and lovely friendly staff. Will definitely go back to when needing another getaway.
