Listing Details

This established, profitable and easy to run business is on offer for sale by expression of interest (closing on 29/4/2016) on walk-in walk out basis (minus some home content). The property and the business are ready to be taken over as-is with all systems running so a new owner could just settle in and start operating and earning from the first day.

This unique property consists of 4 x 1 bedroom luxury rainforest bungalows, a large 3 bedroom owner’s residence, a reception/office building and a large maintenance shed. It is situated on 15.4 hectares of native rainforest with a permanently flowing watercourse in a wonderful pristine and natural setting that abuts the Toolagi State Forest.

The main residence offers comfortable and spacious living space with the house positioned to take in its natural surrounds and well established gardens.

The architect design rainforest bungalows are very well appointed and are fully self-contained. Each rainforest bungalow is set in its own private piece of rainforest overlooking beautiful fern gullies and a bushland lake.

The business has been successfully operating in its current model since 2000. It is an accredited and 4.5 star rated accommodation business that has won several Australian and Victorian Tourism Awards. The retreat is positioned to appeal to a well-defined and specific target market of adult couples seeking indulgent, yet secluded, nature-based short break experience. Its offering is predominantly set as a boutique high-end accommodation for adults and the experience is designed as a nature-based luxurious retreat with a romantic theme.

The business has achieved steady growth and its current substantial turnover is providing its owners with a handsome income and an enviable lifestyle in a beautiful and temperate part of Victoria.

The business is currently run by a couple with some casual assistance for cleaning and ground maintenance and with all food provision outsourced to a local high end supplier.

The property is located in the town of Narbethong (an aboriginal word meaning cheerful place), a small rural hamlet located approximately 84 km north east of Melbourne CBD (1h and 25 min) at the edge of the Yarra Ranges National Park, midway between the well-known tourist towns of Healesville and Marysville. It is accessed from Melbourne via the world famous Black Spur Drive.

A comprehensive Information Memorandum is available to interested parties post the submission of a Confidentiality Agreement.
