Hi my name is Fleur. My husband Mike and I have a small flock of holiday houses and cabins, that we run as our management company Dufflebird.
We manage 9 Holiday Houses that are all within 2.5 hours of Melbourne. All places are different but they are similar in that they all have personality and they are all surrounded by nature.
3 of our 9 properties are more like cabins than houses.
3 of our properties belong to us, and the other 6 belong to friends (or friends of friends).
7 of the 9 properties are pet friendly (and 6 of those welcome well behaved inside dogs).
Some are rustic and eclectic & some are more contemporary and luxurious.
All places are close to beaches or waterfalls.
Each house is fitted out to feature its own individual character and all are completely self-contained. We have set them all up so that guests can feel like its their own private getaway, while in residence.
Its a commitment keeping each place well maintained and organised. a labour of love. We hope to appeal to like minded souls who are respectful to our properties, the neighbours (in places where there are neighbours) and the surrounding community.
Fingers crossed, we seem to luck in with kindred spirits ....most of the time.
