The resort would seem perfect for families and indeed during my stay there were several families obviously enjoying their time at the resort. Picturesque Metung is just over a half-day’s drive from Melbourne.

How Did It Rate?
The villa was clean and well maintained. The main living area featured a long couch, table and chairs, television with DVD and some pay television stations.
The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and other cooking equipment.
A very comfortable bed with crisp linen.
Good facilities for families including a playground and swimming pool.
A veranda. The view wasn’t that scenic, but several attractive trees proved popular with colorful parrots.
While the accommodation is described as a ‘villa’, a cabin would probably better reflect the description. The furniture was quite basic.
The resort is located in a residential area of Metung, around a 10 minute walk and a very short drive from the waterfront and Metung’s shops. For those wanting waterfront views this may be a disadvantage but it didn’t worry me as there were plenty of scenic spots around Metung in which to `hang out’ during the day.
No hairdryers although reception did have a spare one it lent me.
