What a relaxing and well-appointed location - luxury AAA.
We stayed for a few nights with two other couples and had plenty of room to relax together and also have our own space when we wanted. The view from the main balcony is fantastic, a great place to enjoy food and wine while watching the sunset. Just as good in the morning for that first cup of coffee and breakfast as well. An easy walk into town and great access to the bush walking trails immediately behind the house. Plenty of activities around the region to do as well.
Can’t wait to go back again.

JUST FANTASTIC! We loved every minute spent at Aruma. We were in bright for a wedding and the accommodation was just perfect for me and family. We ended up not going out for any meals, as the kitchen, living areas and balcony were just too lovely to leave. Every amenity you could think of was catered for. Linda was a dream to deal with and check in/out was easy. We will certainly be back (also some of our very jealous family members have already requested the link!) thanks so much 🙂
Our Christmas stay at Aruma was magical. It's a stunningly beautiful, modern, comfortable house with lots of space to come together and also get privacy when you need it. No details have been overlooked. Linda was brilliant: friendly, organised and very accommodating with our special needs. We will have many special memories: seeing kangaroos grazing just outside our windows, family BBQs and breakfasts on the top deck, cooking a Christmas roast together, playing games at the huge table and great times in Bright and surrounds. Thank you. We will be back.
Aruma is a beautiful property - incredible views and great furnishings/appliances/amenities, absolutely everything you would need for a relaxing stay. Well located for walking into the town centre but great sense of space and the property backs onto walking tracks and bushland. Linda and Martin were perfect hosts - making the check in/check out experience effortless, ensuring we had all we needed for our stay and providing helpful tips for getting the most from our trip - thank you!
We had THE BEST weekend at Aruma in Bright. The house is incredible - comfortable beds, huge private bedrooms, multiple living spaces and multiple balconies (the main balcony has a million dollar view that we couldn't tear ourselves away from). The kitchen is fully equipped with absolutely everything you could ask for, as is the whole house. We were particularly impressed with the little touches - the Aesop products in all bathrooms, the selection of tea and coffee and the fact that Linda contacted us in advance to ask specifically what type of milk we would like to have waiting for us! I could not recommend Aruma more highly. Its the best place any of us had stayed.... ever! Thanks to Linda for facilitating an amazing trip to Bright.
We had such a magical stay at Willie Wagtails - Heidi was incredibly friendly and informative and we were blown away by the house and beautiful surrounding bushland. We plan on coming back every year!
A beautiful home set in peaceful idealic surrounds just a couple of minutes walk from the town centre of Bright . Heidi has a special flair for interior decorating and has created a lovely space that provided a wow factor the minute we walked in the front door .. Well appointed kitchen , comfortable beds with lovely linens, and modern spacious bathrooms comfortably accommodated our group of 4 couples . After a day of bike riding it was delightful to sit on the deck late into the evening with the inside outside open fire to keep us warm and the smell of eucalypts and twinkling stars to remind us of our bush setting. And the champagne and chocolates on arrival was much appreciated and a very thoughtful touch. We all look forward to returning ...
A beautiful house to spend time with friends and family. It has a large open lounge, kitchen and dining area, a very well equipped kitchen with lots of plates, cutlery, glasses (including different types of wine glasses) , lots of serving bowls and platters. The front deck is perfect for an evening glass of wine while watching the kangaroos and birds. The bedrooms are plenty big enough, comfy beds and the master bedroom has a huge walk in robe and bathroom. The host Heidi is a great interior designer and has provided lots of little touches that makes the house hard to leave at the end of your stay.
A perfectly quiet location and the view from the spa was superb. Fantastic hosts and a fantastic facility. Would love to come back!
Highly recommend. In a beautiful spot and great location.
The accommodation is great value for money. We had a lovely tranquil couple of days...mission accomplished. What a little gem this place is!!
Great accommodation and great location. Really large house and perfect for the weekend away.
What a wonderful house for kids. Plenty of room to run around and bike ride. Right on the bike trail and canyon walk making it great for our country holiday. Linda was the perfect host. Thankyou.
We absolutely LOVED the house and can't wait to return in Winter to snowboard at Falls/Hotham. Linda was so friendly and helpful and made our stay incredibly enjoyable. The house is like a home away from home but even better! The kitchen and pantry are so well equipped and the two large living rooms provide plenty of space and allow everyone to relax.

Great place to stay! Short beautiful walk to Bright shops along the ovens river or a 3 min drive. Place is Massive! Linda lit the fire place before our arrival after a long day at the snow. Great host and a great stay.
We enjoyed our stay very much. We were welcomed to a warm house, with a burning fire. The house has a lovely feel about it. There was fresh linen on the beds and clean towels. The house looks just like in the photos. What you don't get a good sense of in the photos is the surrounding view and nice big garden. Unfortunately, we couldn't bring our bikes with us this time but we will next time. The house is close to the bike path/ walking track that takes you into Bright and other areas. The house is close to a number of great places to visit for families. We enjoyed going to the Deer/ Emu farm, the great coffee shops in Bright, the waterpark in Bright.
This was an amazing place to stay, a private paradise in a beautiful valley. Linda was wonderful and very accommodating. Hopefully we will be back in the near future!
Thanks Linda for everything. What a beautiful house, close to creeks, walks etc. The beds were very comfortable and the pantry had everything we needed to add to our dinner.
Thank you Linda for helping us with our accommodation whilst we were in The High Country. We had the most amazing 'stay' at Molly’s!!! Her home became our home. As the quote in her home states 'LOVE LIVES HERE', we certainly felt it! Molly's your home is cosy and BURSTING with love. Thank you for allowing us to stay there. We will return...
It was so lovely to find pet friendly accommodation so we could bring our dog on holiday too. He loved frolicking in the lovely big yard. The house was welcoming and warm and the log fire was very toasty! Molly's is in a great location in Wandi, only a 15-20 min walk to the local pub.
Molly's place reflected the essence of Wandiligong beautifully. It had lots of eccentric charm from its long past, yet all the comfort that today's guests might expect. We arrived to a warm welcome from Molly and the house reflected her interests in good living. Along with the vintage furniture and details, the house boasted good cooking equipment as well as comfortable beds and excellent pillows - all making for a good night's sleep! It is easy to potter around Wandiligong, especially with the diggings just across the road, and there are plenty of sights further afield. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
We had the most incredible 2 nights! Unfortunately our little getaway was very short, however the Studio Cottage was absolutely perfect and we could not fault it! It made the short time we had 100% worthwhile and will definitely be retuning! Upon arriving later than we thought we walked into a stunning little home, which was pre-warmed, and exactly what we were expecting if not better. Thank you so much to Linda for having everything organised and for taking such incredible care of her guests and Cottages and making it feel very homey. Spa bath was definitely a highlight as well as the wood burning fire, however despite the constant rain and cold the little balcony out the side should not be forgotten Will be recommending to friends without hesitation and promise to be back soon!
We had a FANTASTIC time staying at The Studio in Bright. The accommodation was perfect, with everything you need to keep comfortable. We spent a lot of time in front of the wood fire during our winter stay, and the spa bath was amazing! It was wonderful to wake each morning with views of the trees outside the house through the huge arched windows. The Studio is right next to a walking track that takes you into town, which was a very peaceful walk next to a small gorge/canyon. Furthermore, the hosts were lovely and extremely helpful. They provided us with all the information we needed to enjoy our stay, and left us some fresh coffee and milk for the cold morning after our arrival. We really had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful studio cottage!! Highly recommend it!
The Studio is a funky design and very comfortable and beautifully heated for cold winter days with a log fire and reverse cycle air conditioning/heating. It was immaculately clean and stylish. The bowl of chocolate eclairs on the table and jar of shortbread in the cupboard were a nice welcoming touch. We enjoyed the range of birds including galahs, crimson rosellas, magpies, king parrots, and tiny robins who came to feast in the feeder box just off the deck. A lovely place in a lovely setting!
Cuballa will be a great place to begin your holiday at Bright! The house was cosy with everything we needed and we were very happy to be able to come home everyday to a lovely house like Cuballa! 100% recommend to everyone and anyone who is looking to come to Bright!
Had a wonderful stay in a stunning and comfortable property. The host was very helpful and made some excellent recommendations of local places to check out. Will stay again!
