Highly commended in the Australian Achiever Awards & featured on Channel 9’s Getaway program, Como Cottages in Olinda, Victoria, has been a destination for vacations and romantic weekends since the 1900s. With the likes of Sir Arthur Streeton and Frederick McCubbin, and the Burnham Beeches Estate just down the road, it was always both a place for artists and aristocrats.
Set in the nature laden Dandenong Ranges, Como Cottages is a small, family owned and run business. Brett first came here in 1990 and started with one cottage in 1992. With his building skills, creativity, and a love of art, music, antiques and collectables, he has created a village atmosphere with the original 1900s ‘shacks’ on the property. Lovingly restored they are now the romantic, self contained cottages you see today. Enjoy the gardens, the veggie patch and the chooks (Wisdom & Luna).
