My wife and stayed at Villa Gusto over the Victorian Labour Day long weekend. Couldn't fault a thing. The previous reviews of this beautiful and relaxing Mediterranean accomodation house say it all. Well done to Ben and Kirsten. Do your self a favour and book without hesitation. You will not regret it.

Villa Gusto is the perfect place to relax, unwind and indulge. Breakfast was just delicious as were the Apertivo selections. Wines were great also. Loved our room, the gardens and of course, the pool. Kirsten and Ben were the perfect hosts. Grazie mille!!! We will definately be back. Very highly recommended.

Just back from an amazing w'end with great friends staying at Villa Gusto. Ben & Kirsten are exceptional hosts - professional and attentive with an obvious desire to make VG the best it can possibly be. The accommodation is faultless. Would strongly recommend prearranging an evening meal rather than the light snacks on offer. Excellent food and wine.

This place is unbelievably well maintained and a fantastic place to stay for a relaxing and luxury country holiday. We stayed at the Cioccolato room and it was exceptionally well appointed and it was a genuinely luxury room. Ben and Kirstan were delightful hosts. There was a good selection for the A-la-carte breakfast that was well presented and tasty. I...

We cannot thank Ben & Kirsten enough for a superb weekend away. An absolutely beautiful property with great rooms and superb views of Mt Buffalo ranges. Daily breakfasts were beautiful and we are so disappointed we only had dinner once as it was amazing, with great wines suggested by Ben. If you stay here, make time for dinner on at...

Treated ourselves to a weekend at the Villa, and it couldn't have been more special. A stunning B&B that is so much more. A stunning pool and beautiful garden with Mt Buffalo as the backdrop. Our room was lovely, spacious and beautifully appointed with all the little touches that make this place such a stand out. The hosts Ben and...

The room we had was excellent as was the housekeeping. The breakfasts were excellent. Although mains as such for dinner were not on the menu the selection of 'bar foods' were filling, of excellent presentation, varied and reasonably priced. The hosts Kristen and Ben were experienced, thoughtful and helpful in making our stay there extremely pleasant. The range of wines...

We returned after nearly six years, two children, and found the hospitality of the new owners Ben and Kirsten impeccable. The pre-dinner Prosciutto De Palma was exceptional as we settled into comfy chairs in front of a nice fire. Ben made all our decisions whether it be heading out for cointreau for margaritas, the choice of wine and the finishing...
