"Amazing Property: Loved everything about this house. Perfect for girls weekend away. Walking distance to all attractions and shopping. We dined across the road at Mercato and was equally impressed. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. "

"Beautiful and relaxing stay: Seven of us stayed a long weekend at Ithaca and it was perfect for our needs. We were lucky enough to have sunny weather, so between the outdoor space and the two living spaces there was more than enough space for our group. The two bathrooms and separate toilet are an excellent feature for a house that sleeps so many. The kitchen was great - much more well-equipped than your average holiday accommodation, and we found everything we needed to make a few big meals. There's no wifi (and data reception was patchy) - which we were disappointed by at first, but really, we didn't miss it at all. We look forward to coming back in the cooler months to take advantage of the wood fire! Thanks so much to Brian and Mary for a lovely weekend. "

"AMAZING!!!!!: Thank you for sharing your amazing house. The property is perfect for either families or a girls weekend. So close to everything you need. Once our car was parked we did not use it again. Great restaurants, cafes and pubs all walking distance. The house itself is everything "

"Perfect spot and a beautifully presented home.: We had a double celebration and wanted to spend a long weekend in style, and Ithaca House provided the perfect setting. The house itself is lovely - while it looks small from the front, it opens out to a well presented, comfortable and deceptively large living area. The beds are so comfortable, with warm doona's, comfortable pillows and ample space in the bedrooms. All the comforts you could ask for including plenty of wine glasses, tea, coffee, biscuits, salt and pepper, a full laundry, it really is a home away from home, only more luxurious! The location is great too, being walking distance from the main part of town, but far enough away to be quiet. There are 2 schools in the street so it can be a bit busy around school pick up/drop off times, but no hassle for us at all. Big thanks to Brian and Mary for making such a place available!"

"Perfect getaway: A group of seven cousins stayed here a month or so ago. The location is great - close to everything Daylesford and the home itself is superb! Clean, orderly, modern where it needed to be and warm and friendly. We'll be coming back!"

"Perfect Home away from Home: We have just returned from our second winter stay at Ithaca House and again it was a delight to be there. Although the weather left a bit to be desired ( but it is winter so we have to expect that) the house was lovely and cosy warm for the 5 of us to relax and catch up and also return to after tasting some of Daylesford's delicious food. Thank you Mary and Brian, your house is just perfect for our family needs."

"We stayed at this wonderful House for 2 nights & would highly recommend this to anyone. Even though the temperature reached 40 deg outside the house was lovely & cool. It was spotless inside with a beautiful maintained garden which was a pleasure to sit out in for breakfast. There was 7 of us staying yet you weren't in each others way, with 2 bathrooms & a separate toilet made it very easy in the mornings. Everything that you could want was provided. Would definately stay at Ithaca House again."

"I had my wedding at the Convent Gallery and was looking for a nice place close to stay by. Ithaca fit the bill in every way. Great place, light, airy, plenty of space, great little back yard, close a great place to eat, the pub and a nice stroll to the main street, basically everything you need to have a relaxing time in Daylesford. Highly recommend."

"I stayed althaca house for a girls weekend and it was just perfect. Lots of room for a large group and close enough to walk to town. Great having 2 bathrooms for girls to get ready and a large table to dine on. I highly recommend this house as it has owners who keep it clean and it has such great facilities. "

"The purpose of our visit to Daylesford, was a girls weekend away. 6 of us, no kids, just food, wine, day spas and whatever else that Daylesford could offer us.Ithaca House did not disappoint, in fact, it was even more pleasant than what it's profile had stated.Ithaca House greeted us with a gorgeous tree blooming beautiful pink flowers, what a fantastic welcome! and stepping inside out of the cold you are greeted with a warm and inviting 4 bedroom house.The rooms are large, the bedding warm and the house comes with a sitting room next to a fire (brilliant for those nights where frost unexpectedly falls).2 x Gorgeous modern bathrooms and the kitchen comes equipped with all you need for a home away from home.Its location was fantastic. 2 min drive to Frangos for the most gorgeous breakfast and coffee to die for, 100m walk to the delightfully delicious Mercato restaurant and in the other direction is the Farmers Arm pub, about a few hundred metres walk (thanks for the torches in each room also!).I highly recommend a stay at Ithaca House, I could easily live here. It's a great location, equipped with more than what you need and I'm already planning my next stay...."

"Fabulous accommodation. Ithaca House is a beautifully renovated classic property, very clean with a cosy fireplace and sunny aspect. Very comfortable for girls weekend, with four good sized bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Walking distance to the best of everything Daylesford has to offer. Very easy to organise with the lovely owners and maximum privacy when we arrived."

"Loved Ithica House. Beautifully appointed and had everything we needed. Despite being the middle of winter we were able to remain warm and cosy. We really appreciated arriving to find heating on and house already warmed. The one little problem we had was dealt with immediately. The garden was glorious and added to the pleasure of our stay. Next visit to Dayelsford, Ithica House will be my accommodation of choice."

"We all loved staying here, for our annual girls weekend. Plenty of space for all of us so we weren't tripping over one another. Great attention to detail, we particularly appreciated the welcome lights and the set fire with firelighter on the mantle. We spent a cosy night infront of the fire enjoying food and great company. Have recommended to other friends to stay here. The owners were an absolute pleasure to deal with and nothing was too much trouble. Fantastic experience and hope to revisit again!"
