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.
Wonderful weekend away! Linda was helpful and responsive both in the lead up to and during our stay. The tips she provided for local meals was fantastic. The house is exactly as pictured- beautiful views, clean and had everything we needed. We would definitely come back. Thanks for a great weekend!!!
This is an amazing property that provides high-end comfort and amenities to base your exploration of the Alpine area. We loved the multiple entertainment zones, generous bedrooms and well appointed kitchen and outdoor deck. Linda is a great host, and her quick communication made sure we were really well prepared. We loved Bright and everything the surrounding area has to offer and staying here made our stay even more enjoyable. We will be back.
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.
Heidi's Place was fantastic, great location, modern building with great features like a fireplace with wood supplied. Play room for the children with toys. We'll be booking again next time we go to Bright.
My family and I enjoyed a wonderful four-night stay at Willie Wagtails. The house was stunning, peaceful, pristine and incredibly comfortable. Everything was well catered for and we had a relaxing and fun getaway in Bright. Our two toddlers had a fantastic time exploring the space and spotting kangaroos at dusk. The fireplace was beautiful and the incredibly spacious house was perfectly warm and cosy for an autumn break. The extended check in/out times and great communication with the hosts were an added bonus.
Stunning and stylish property... plenty of space for all as we had 7 adults and 2 children under 3. We had family from overseas and they were so excited to see kangaroos right near the property! Had everything we needed! Beautiful place to stay in Bright.
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.
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!
Awesome, clean & modern house located in quite possibly the best location in town. Very pet friendly. Loved our stay and will be coming back!
