About Brenda

My profession has been teaching and I am now semi retired. I enjoy meeting people from all over the world and seeing them enjoy the experience of staying in the Mansion.

I respect guests space and I have space of my own within the property which allows all parties privacy.

Brenda purchased this house in 1998

Why Brenda chose Yarraville

The property is unique and grand. It has a wonderful history and a good karma.

It is close to all facilities and particular to inner Melbourne.

Owner's Response: Thank you both for staying it was lovely to meet you While the internal home is fully renovated the external front veradah renovation will be finalised in the coming months with cast iron post being reproduced by cast iron experts in Castlemaine The house has a good karma linked to a significant historical contribution to Melbourne Grammar school. Scotch College the Western Bulldogs and Footscray Municipal Council. The goodworks of the Cuming family extended well across Melbourne. Cheers Brenda

Comfortable and Old Worldly

  • 5 of 5

I spent 3 nights in a beautiful room with new ensuite in this historical mansion.

The owner Brenda, made sure I wanted for nothing. She went the extra mile.

The Mansion is reasonably priced especially if you want to rent the entire house.

Brenda is a down-to-earth Aussie gem. I recommend her accommodation and will stay there again when visiting from Perth.

Very welcoming and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited Melbourne and stayed at Huntly for 3 nights. I can't speak highly enough of Brenda who met us on arrival and immediately made us feel at home. Our room was oldy/worldly and very comfortable. King size bed and ensuite. We had the run of the kitchen and gardens and it's a very short walk to Yarraville village and train station. We will be sure to stay again.

My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a stay in Yarraville. Brenda is a fabulous host and the rooms are very cosy and comfy. We stayed in an ensuite room which was perfect for our needs. The village is only a hop, skip and a jump away with lots of different dining options.

We loved our stay here and we look forward to returning in the near future.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Huntley. Brenda made it all so easy to find our way round the lovely historical mansion. My son and his girlfriend loved their self contained quarters and my downstairs room was comfy and cosy. We had the run of the kitchen and gardens and felt quite at home ...
