is a small, family owned and run business for 25 years. Brett first came here in 1990 and started 'Como Cottages' with one cottage in 1992. With his skills as a builder from Tasmainia, his creativity and a love of art, music, antiques and collectables, Brett has created a 'village like' atmosphere with the original 1900's 'shacks' of the property. They are now the romantic, self-contained cottages you see today. Come and enjoy the gardens, the veggie patch and the chooks (Wisdom & Fern) and you will often see Brett pottering around the gardens and doing maintenance. Melinda, his wife, spends most of her time just up the road at our day spa Elle Naturale Olinda, where our guests can continue their relaxation and then head back to their cottage for a spa or soak in the bathtub.
Highly commended in the Australian Achiever Awards & featured on Channel 9's Getaway program, Como Cottages in Olinda Dandenong Ranges, Victoria, has always been a destination for vacations and romantic weekend getaways since the 1920's. With the likes of Sir Arthur Streeton and Frederick McCubbin and the Burnham Beeches Estate just down the road, it was always a place for artists and aristocrats
