I had a thoroughly relaxing weekend st Manna Gum Studio. The room was lovely, bed very comfortable and the kitchen well kitted out. Would definitely come back. Maybe next time I’ll have to bring the family and stay at the big house!

- Suzannah - 03/10/2018
We really enjoyed staying here and would highly recommend it to others. Set on such a beautiful and well-cared for property, the studio was a perfect getaway for a couple. It had everything we needed, in very good condition. Would love to book again if we’re ever back visiting the area.

- Peter - 12/08/2018
The Studio at Manna Gums is beautiful. Our dog loved running around and we were not bothered by anyone. We will definitely be back.

- Jeanette - 25/07/2018
Nestled in the heart of a gully, Manna Gum Escape is the perfect getaway! Our stay was marked by misty mornings warmed by the toasty wood fire in the spacious lounge room and afternoons sipping hot tea on the deck overlooking eucalypts and ferns. A five minute drive to Bright, the studio Cabin was a great escape after a day out and about. We were thoroughly impressed with location, booking process and overall experience with Alpine Valley Getaways. We will be recommending to all our friends.

- Kelly - 19/07/2018
Lovely studio cabin in the middle of the wilderness. The log fire was absolutely lovely for our winter stay, with plenty of firewood provided. Well equipped kitchen. Clean bathroom with a large shower. The Dog friendly option was perfect for us, but you wouldn't have know other dogs had stayed there. There aren't fences to keep dogs in, but there are no main roads near by, and there is plenty of open wilderness for them to run around in. We will definitely stay again.

- Wendy - 16/07/2018
Great location. Lovely property. Very comfortable. Well equipped with cooking utensils. Enjoyed the fire. Saw the wombat. Overall ambience excellent.

- Garry - 26/06/2018
The most perfect setting for a relaxing weekend.

- Gillian - 14/06/2018
Leave enough soap etc appropriate for length of stay and kindling for fire. Coffee pods didn't fit the machine. Door lock needed upgrade. Provide real milk and milk frother for nespresso machine

Better than expected. Plenty of wild life. A perfect spot for quiet break.

- Kevin - 02/07/2017
This cottage is the perfect getaway location - especially for those who love the bush. The bed was comfy, warm and cozy and the cabin itself is a good size with everything you need. Bright and Porepunkah close yby for restaurants and supplies. The icing on the cake was the fox that crept across the lawn, the kangaroos that bounded up the road and the wombat that waddled across the dirt track coming home one night!

- Jim - 01/05/2017
A very pleasant stay.

- Jim - 12/03/2017

Fantastic little studio in beautiful bush setting. Has everything you need and is very comfortable. Spent a lot of time sitting on the deck and all I could hear was birds. Oh the serenity!

- Jenny - 02/01/2017
We really enjoyed our stay at the Manna Gum studio, it was the perfect place for our wedding anniversary getaway. It is in a great location, nestled among the bush with gorgeous views - whilst also close to both Porepunkah and Bright. If you are looking for a unique and comfortable getaway I highly recommend the Manna Gum studio!

- Justin - 14/10/2016
Fantastic location and beautiful setting. Disappointed with the cleanliness of the property on arrival.

- Deanne - 30/08/2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks stay at Manna Gums Studio. The facilities and amenities were excellent for our needs and we looked forward to returning to the luxurious comfort after a day on the snowfields! Thanks to Emma and the team for making the whole experience from booking to departure a seamless process and we'll definitely be returning again soon! A highlight for us was our nightly visit from Bindi the Wombat, added a truly unique aspect to an awesome stay.

- Stuart - 11/08/2016
Lovely, quite and peaceful.

Secluded and peaceful. Cosy. Quiet

Tranquil, and beautiful with great walks as soon as you step out the door. Perfect for someone like myself with a much loved dog. Very private. Perfectly equipped. Loved going to bed with the wood fire blazing in full view. So appreciative of people who provide up market accommodation for those of us who travel with our dogs. Highly recommended

- Cynthia - 19/08/2015
We had a lovely time - the studio was clean, modern, great facilities. It was very private and cosy, which was exactly what we were looking for in a getaway!

- Erin - 26/07/2015
It was a beautiful quiet and restful place. Very cosy with the open fire. The dog loved it and didn't want to go home
Enjoyed watching the wildlife kangaroos, wombat ,fox and a plethora of beautiful birds

- Peter and Karen - 28/06/2015
A charming spacious studio with all the amenities you could hope for. Beautifully set in woodland with wildlife, and perfectly located for the alpine road and bright. This place actually over delivered on all my expectations. The wood burner, coffee machine and beautiful bed were amazing touches
I thought the property and amenities were excellent. I only feel the online pictures did not do it justice. One of the best breaks I've had in Australia in the four years I've lived here

- Clare - 31/05/2015
We wanted a relaxing escape before our first baby arrives. Manna Gum studio was exactly what we were after. Fantastic setting in the tall wet forest, yet only a few minutes drive to Bright. The most peaceful and relaxing holiday we've ever had.

- Stuart - 22/05/2015
Manna Gum Studio was a delight from the moment we drove in and were greeted by a deer, wombat and three kangaroos. The home is beautiful and has everything that you would want for a relaxing tranquil weekend. Warm fire place, great bed and bedding, hot shower, peace and quite. Could not have been more impressed with the place and the value for money! We will be back soon

- Charlie - 17/05/2015
We stay two nights with our well behaved 14 month old dog. She love the big open ground out the front of the studio to explore and the warm wood fire inside to cuddle up next too.
We love the peace and quite, all the bird life and comfort and warm of the studio accommodation.

- maryann - 10/05/2015
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would recommend it as a great place to stay and I look forward to returning soon.
