What Past Guests Are Saying
A Home We Can Really Feel at Home :)
In early March 2013, my family & I had a great holiday in Melbourne. And I'd say our stay at Kaori Villa contributed to the wonderful moments as well. Cozy & clean apartment, well-equipped with all the necessities for our family. There are even kids utensils & cutlery, and all the cartoon Dvds & board games which make my 2 littles ones so thrilled!
Location is excellent, minutes to Croydon Shopping Centre for all the grocery shopping. And the attractions eg. City area, Puffing Billy Steam Train, Mornington Peninsula & Phillip Island are all within reasonable distance.
And lastly, the hosts Lisa & Kees are so helpful and display great hospitality in welcoming us for the stay. They are always all smiles, even at 9pm when I called Lisa over to guide me on using the washing machine & dryer. What can I say? We have such lovely hosts that I feel kinda sad to check-out on the last day.
I'd definitely recommend Bungunyah apartments to anyone who's going for a holiday in Melbourne. It's really a home which we really feel so much at home!

It was a pleasure having you and your family stay with us Joyce. Kees and I are happy to know you felt so at home and that everything was to your liking. Thank you so much for staying at Bungunyah! Lisa & Kees

Ideal accommodation at a realist price.
Self contained apartment will all facilities for cooking, entertainment and laundry, comfortably but not luxuriously furnished, showing some sign of age. Good airconditioning and heating. Excellent location for a base to explore the Dandenong ranges and Yarra Valley. Easy access to local shopping, eating and cinema and rail for travel to city. The hosts are extremely pleasant, helpful and attentive to guests' requests.
Would recommend for both couples and families and would definately stay there again. (Have family living less than 1 km away!)
Response from Bungunyah Apartments - 01/25/2013
Thank you Colin for your kind comments & candid review. A new kitchen was installed only last year and early next month we are about to embark on the second stage of our refurbishment which will include renovating the bathroom and replacing carpets which should greatly improve any signs of aging or wear and tear.
We look forward to seeing you again.

Lovely surrounds, peaceful and comfortable
We stayed at Bungunyah for the convenience of catching up with family and friends in the area. We found the property to be extremely peaceful and very well looked after. The Villa was equipped with everything anyone could ever need and tastefully decorated. Lisa and Kees were wonderful hosts and obviously have great pride in their property.
Response from Bungunyah Apartments - 11/28/2012
We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that you found Bungunyah to your liking. Kees and I endeavour to make our guest's experience a positive one and yes we do take pride in what we do! Thank you for your lovely review. Lisa.
Fantastic apartments, Clean, Fully Equipped, Friendly Service
Had a great week staying at Bungunyah apartments for a friends wedding around the corner. One of the very few places to stay in the Far East of Melbourne that isn't a hotel/motel.
Fully equipped and would be perfect for families as there were lots of movies, kids games, magazines and books etc. Outdoor area was really neat, tidy and perfect for Bbq's
Very reasonable price for the standard and inclusions.
It was totally comfortable and complete in every way.
We had a perfect stay at Bungunyah apartments for our visit to Melbourne. The unit was perfectly clean, warm and complete with all we could possibly require. The owners were very gracious and obliging. We were very happy with all aspects of our stay at Bungunyah apartments.
Excellent holiday home away from home.
Quiet and relaxing set in beautiful gardens, this lovely apartment unit is comfortable and a great location to explore the surrounds. We all wanted to stay longer to appreciate all the unit had to offer and the decor was simple but elegant. I know where I'll be wanting to come back again with my whole family.
Great quiet family place.
Loved Bungungyah! 2 young kids who loved it to. Warm, cosy, laundry with a dryer, and free Wifi. Amazing.
Easy reach of Melbourne CBD by train but also easy getting out to Dandenongs and beyond.
Good to have a car as would be a faff without one.
We did have the impression we might have acres of land to run in but only a small garden really. Still better than nothing.
We would definately recommend it to others be they a couple or a family.
Response from Bungunyah Apartments - 08/25/2012
Thank you for your glowing review. Not sure why you would have thought you might have 'acres of land to run in'. In over 6 years of business we have never had anyone else make that comment. Bungunyah is located on 2 acres of land and we boast each villa has been built with individual gardens, highlighting we are not like a multi storey complex. The Kaori has a lovely private front garden and the rear garden is full of beautiful roses, daisies and other ornamental plants. The rear garden has been designed around an entertainment area with outdoor setting and BBQ. Thank you for your recommendation. Lisa & Kees
A great stay
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We found peace and tranquillity. We liked the practical design and set up. It really felt like home. What a great experience!
It was quite a stressful task organizing a group booking for the June long weekend Basketball Touranment until I stumbled across your accommodation. It was everything and more than we expected. It was very central to all the stadiums. The Team was able to room together in a homely but spacious environment. It will be an experience they will remember for a lifetime.
Spacious, clean and ideal for a family
Lisa was very friendly and accommodating from the start. Ideal place for a family. We rented a two bedroom villa and it was very clean and spacious. Kitchen and laundry were an added bonus.

Thank you so much for your review. We really appreciate the time you have taken and are so happy to hear you enjoy your stay. Lisa & Kees
Pristine, quiet and well maintained Villa...
Our family enjoyed its stay at Bungunyah appartments. It did not feel like we were staying in commercial accomodation at all. It was Christmas time and the Villa was aptly decorated. It was perfectly clean - and in all the places you would expect it may not be. The gardens were well kept and being up a right of way made it the perfect spot for restful days and quiet nights. Great setting and can only but highly recommend :D )

Thank you it was a pleasure having you stay with us. Lisa & Kees
A home away from home - with all the little extra touches
everythin ran like clockwork - the first time we stayed at the apartments we arrived late at night and we were told the key would be under the door mat and sure it was.
We thought the home very well appointed - it had everything we needed, including a plunger coffee pot and wi-fi connection. Great kitchen, good bathroom and comfortable bed all with a very pretty and peacheful outlook. Location
is great- close to the city and the bush and very tranquil. What I liked best was the taseful yet quirky decoration that give the place charachter. Nothing not to like.
Response from Bungunyah Apartments - 12/22/2011
Thanks for the fantastic review. If our guests are happy so are we. It is a very important part of our service!
Home away from home
Friendly and welcoming owners, all the facilities you will need for a longer stay, beautiful private garden and plenty to see in the surrounding area of the Dandenong Ranges.
Response from Bungunyah Apartments - 12/22/2011
The Dandenong Ranges are beautiful with lots of quirky shops, art & crafts, antiques, fabulous restaurants and beautiful gardens. Add a ride on the puffing billy steam train and find yourself amongst the rainforests of Sherbrooke forest. So glad you enjoyed your stay Carmel.
Comfortable apartment with absolutely everything you need
Fantastic friendly hosts who were more than willing to work around our late arrival and assisted us with everything we need for our 8 month old baby. Which made our stay very comfortable indeed!
Response from Bungunyah Apartments - 12/22/2011
Whether you are a single person travelling, a couple or family we endeavour to meet your needs. Please just ask!
I stayed at Bungunyah for 8 nights in July/August, it was quiet, clean well equiped and comfortable with a pleasant outlook. Lisa and Kees were very helpful, driving me quite a distance down to the car rental to hire a car. I will certainly stay there again the next time I come to Croyden.
I'd happily do it again.
I stayed at Kaori Villa and it was an absolute delight. It was like a little home - immaculate, warm, comfortable, stylish and everything was provided for a peaceful holiday. Set in beautiful gardens, with friendly and helpful proprietors, who could ask for more? I'd happily do it again and would and did recommend it to my friends.
Peaceful & Relaxing
Bungunyah will always be my place to stay whilst in Melbourne. Stayed christmas 2009 in Cotton and there was 8 of us, and it had everything we needed, courtyard great for the kids. This trip was visting my grandfather and my daughter and I stayed in Kaori. The property is secure and we felt safe, facilities are excellent, plenty of towels, blankets etc. The villas are in a quiet location away from the main road and you have your own driveway and garage. I can't fault this propety and the property managers are welcoming and helpful.
Response from Bungunyah Apartments - 07/14/2011
Thank you, we are so very happy to have you visit us again. It is a pleasure and privledge to be able to provide a place where guests and come and feel relaxed and at home.

The best holiday home we have ever had!!
Our 1st experience in Melbourne was a superb one, especially when we checked in to Bungunyah apartments. The place is nice and quiet..very peaceful. We felt like home the moment we stepped into the house!! The kids loved it, we loved it!! It's nice and warm ambience made it all good after a day out in the cold weather.
Nothing can describe this perfect holiday home!! We are soo glad that we came across Bungunyah apartments in the website while looking for our rented holiday house.
We would love to stay here again whenever we travel up to Melbourne in the near future. Of cos we would recommend this perfect place to our family and friends travelling to Melbourne.
Just one request : Please put lightings near the entrance signboard to Bungunyah apartments...It's not visible after dark..Thanks!!
Response from Bungunyah Apartments - 07/09/2011
Thank you so much for your great feedback. We are very happy to hear you loved staying at Bungunyah so much. As to the lighting near the entrance we are considering different options at present and will hopefully have something in place soon.

We all enjoyed our staying finding the villa, neat, clean, comfortable and relaxing. It felt like luxury after spending the last couple of days in the Youth Hostel and sharing bathrooms and kitchens, to have our own villa to relax in was great. Lisa was a great hostess, and made us feel at home, the villas felt very private and we enjoyed our stay there enormously. Would definately stay there again if ever get the chance.

Thank you so much for reviewing our property. We loved to have you visit again. Lisa & Kees
Excellent, spacious family accomodation, pleasant surroundings
Great value for money (especially for extended family group) and very spacious beautifully furnished unit/apartment in outer suburbs of Melbourne. Close to supermarkets etc. Has its own enclosed garden so excellent for children with park/playground next door. Hosts very helpful. Good amenities.
Response from Bungunyah Apartments - 04/28/2011
Thank you Sam. It is great to know you were so happy with the villa unit and that your had a positive experience here at Bungunyah. Lisa & Kees

Pleasant , Charming & Tranquil Experience
Very Peacefull & homely. Tastefully decorated with quality fixtures. Beautiful Gardens & Surroundings. Thoroughly reccomended for couples looking for a Peacefull & Quiet place to stay and chill out.
Private and peaceful
Our stay at Kaori Village was perfect for our Christmas family holiday. We loved the private and peaceful setting and soon settled into our comfortable and well serviced accomodation. Will hopefully visit again soon
This is the second time we have stayed at Bungunyah apartments. We found the apartment to be comfortable and everything we needed provided in the unit. We had a very nice eight days in the Kaori Villa. I would recommend a stay to anyone who would like to listen. We are planning to stay again next year.
The place we stayed was beautiful, very clean and with a great decor...
better then we expected, comfortable, we had everything we needed
I would recomend Kaori Villa to everyone who wants great place to stay, excellent service and wonderful memories.
Thank you Lisa
Peaceful and quiet, spacious family accomodation.
You have a very comfortable accomodation for families in the Kaori appartment. Its got everything we'd ever ask for. We were looking for a peaceful and quiet accomodation outside the city but accesible by public transport and that's what we found. We'd definitely stay here again.
Haven during a difficult visit
My mother and I were in Melbourne to visit her sister who is very ill, and Bungunyah apartments came up on a Google search as near my aunt's accommodation. We stayed for 3 nights and found both the accommodation and our hosts very good. Lisa assisted with a number of small but important matters.My Melbourne cousins were also impressed by the standard of the unit and are considering recommending it to other family members who may be visiting.The decor is simple and attractive, the unit was very clean and there was ample space for the two of us. The garden was in full bloom and absolutely lovely.

A Paradise Beckoning ...
Spotlessly clean, quiet and well positioned, these beautifully appointed apartments offered everything we needed (and more) on our recent holiday. The surrounding gardens are spectacular and offered a perfect place to wind down and relax. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. They were also very knowledgeable on the local area and offered great advice and suggestions on tourist attractions and places of interest.
The apartments are well positioned close to the beautiful Dandenong Ranges which we visited on our stay and an easy train ride into the wonderful city of Melbourne.
Bungunyah apartments was by far the best place we stayed on our short trip to Victoria. We will be back and will look forward to another wonderful and relaxing stay.

Very comfortable, quiet, private and appealing unit.
Set back off a busy road, we were thankful for off street parking by the unit, the privacy and tranquility, the elegant grounds it afforded us, the peace, space and the well equipt amenities throughout the appartment. Lisa and Kees were friendly and obliging hosts, and have obviously put a lot of thought and care in creating this charming haven. Bungunyah Villas are completely self contained, a short drive to Croydons' shopping centre, and on the threshold of the Dandenong Ranges National Park. We have no hesitation in reccommending these villas to discerning travellers looking for a quality home away from home. Thankyou!
We could not have asked for a more perfect, comfortable, private villa. Everything we needed was available. The villa was neat and clean with all the gadgets and gizmos of home! We had a lovely stay and I hope to re-book again on my next trip to Melb.
Just like home!
Lisa and Kos are very friendly. The apartment was so clean and so well stocked. It was comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay. We'll be back.

Bungunyah apartments are beautiful, the setting is lovely and the hosts are very thoughtful. The apartments are extremely well equipped with everything one needs for a home away from home. The apartments are very clean and well maintained.
Everything you could ask for.
Lisa was very accommodating and we had everything we needed in the unit. Even though it is off a main road you didn't hear the traffic. The grounds of the apartments are kept in fantastic condition, so much so, that you feel at home.
Value for money with aesthetic appeal
Private, well appointed, quiet,clean and even a little bit of outdoor area with garden. Friendly, helpful staff.
Warm friendly beautiful accommodation
The hosts could not be more friendly or affable.
The accommodation was cosy and well equipped.
The location was perfect for our stay and the amenities where all excellent.
Liked the themed villa aspect and the can do attitude of the hosts.
Disliked having to leave and come back home to work.

From the moment we pulled up in the driveway any concerns about booking accomodation online sight unseen vanished . Our apartment was immaculate and had everything needed to make it a home away from home. Close to shops and railway but in a quiet location. Very helpful and friendly staff

Comprehensive, well thought out, family friendly accommodation.
Having a toddler is always a difficult travel experience. We early in the evening and had an easy transition as a cot was already provided, including a mattress and linen, which made his bed just like home. Communications with the owners were always friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble. The amenities were perfect for what we needed, including a backyard and even a playground next door. A few more pots and pans (baking dish, roasting tray etc) wouldn't go astray though. Overall we were very impressed and would definitely recommend these units to all.
Response from Bungunyah Apartments - 03/03/2010
Thankyou for the very positive feedback. We will certainly review our cooking utensils and purchase some more pots and pan for the unit.
