The brown alpaca is greedy

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback, the brown one is the most friendly and a little bossy with the others, but is very cute.

Highlight of our Melbourne stay!

  • 5 of 5

Spend a night here with my girlfriend and we agreed this is the one place we'd truly recommend to our friends who are visiting Melbourne. The house is huge, well maintained, and amenities are top quality. The alpacas are cute and friendly!

The owner was kind enough to offer us a freshly made bread, which tasted extra delicious under the cold weather. Made ourselves coffee the next morning and had the bread as breakfast with an unbeatable view, what else can we ask for?

THE BEST outstanding 5-star B&B experience!

  • 5 of 5

Other reviews already eloquently spell out what this property, and the experience of staying at it is like. Should you not wish to read them all, but rather get a succinct and accurate snapshot as to how it really is, we can happily tell you that the following five almost say it all:

From Beth - "Feeling refreshed" dated January 2, 2016;

From Jai - "Immaculate Property" dated October 23, 2015;

From Anne - "Best B&B ever" dated June 5, 2015;

From Rene - dated January 25, 2014; and

From Maurice - dated March 23, 2012.

Then there's the quite unique to this property icing on the cake - and that is the 'up close and personal' experience with the alpacas. When was the last time that you had cute, fascinating alpacas literally eating out of your hands?

How do we know all this to be true? It is our very good fortune to have graduated past all those who wish to return to Raynella, and we've now joined the growing ranks of Nell & Ray's customers who have actually come back for a second (or more) stay. This wonderful property and the experience that it provides continues to be a superlative 'one of a kind'!

Loved the alpacas

  • 5 of 5

Loved feeding the alpacas, they were adorable! The place was lovely, I can't believe it's so close to Melbourne! We enjoyed the breakfast items provided, especially the freshly cooked homemade bread.
