The best of both worlds merge where the trees meet the sea. The Nests sit on the last hill on nearly forty acres before Point Lonsdale. Your hosts Nash and Angela, have had a close association with the area for over thirty years. Their dream was to create an environment where guests could disconnect from the demands of everyday life and absorb the benefits that nature provides.

They named the property, where The Nests sit, ‘Dadirri’, an Indigenous word meaning, ‘A place to drink from your inner spring’. It is with this philosophy, that the Nests were created.

Your escape begins the minute you turn into this luxury getaways driveway. You can let go and drink from your inner spring, or respectfully, if you prefer, from the wine cellar. It is our wish that every one of our guests enjoy the experiences that The Nests at Dadirri offer, so they return to be replenished, whenever the windows permit.

All OUR PODS HAVE AN OUTDOOR DECK SPA, when you book online, you will automatically be allocated a pod with a spa. POD 5, which has an outdoor deck bath with relaxation salts is available by specific email request.

    A massive thank you to Angela and Nash for providing an exceptional service and accommodation for my husband and I on our honeymoon. They went above and beyond to accommodate us. The Nest is very comfortable with a picturesque view from the balcony, which can also be enjoyed from the spa, and makes a great spot for a romantic get away!
    We loved all the small touches too.
    We couldn’t recommend highly enough to our friends and we will definitely be back in the future.

  2. Sarah & Justin Baxter

    The Nest is a breathtakingly beautiful experience from start to finish. My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night and everything was perfection. To the stunning view, clean and modern facilities, to the gorgeous fluffy towels and lush linen, we felt like royalty. Angela and Nash definately go the extra mile for their guests comfort and I could not recommend this property enough. Thank you for everything!! xxx

  4. Danielle & James

    My partner and I have stayed now however The Nest hands down was our favourite.

    The quality of the towels, linen, bedding etc was of the highest standard and it didn’t go un noticed. You really get what you pay for, a high quality, luxury stay with gorgeous views.

    It is only a short 10 minute drive to surrounding suburbs and wineries, 25 mins to Geelong if you want to venture out and 15 mins to jack rabbit winery and Hillmans (beautiful places to eat for lunch)

    Angela and Nash were so sweet too! If you needed anything topped up, they were there right away at your door.

    The spa at night was so dreamy and really east to use. Private and really lovely to sit around and have a drink.

    It was the perfect way to spend our 5 year anniversary and we have recommended the place to our family and friends.

  5. Jon Phey (verified owner)

    Amazing stay at this modern, cosy and private luxury accommodation! Imagine star gazing in the spa, then waking up to the expansive Point Lonsdale views. You’ll be well looked after by the hospitable owners if you decide to book at The Nest.

  6. Glen and Simone

    The Nest offers a lovely bespoke escape that was just what we needed. Our lives can be manic so we really enjoyed our getaway weekend for some romantic time alone to reconnect. The “pods” were ultra modern and really comfortable from the beds that required extra time to sleep in as well as all of the other amenities that were there. The sunsets over the valley were wonderful to watch as well and Simone really loved our time relaxing under the stars in the Jacuzzi.

    Nash and Angela could not have been more accommodating and made us feel instantly as friends and more than guests. You won’t get that from a big hotel.

    The Bellarine Peninsula is an excellent destination as well with many attractions and restaurants in nearby Queenscliff. I really enjoyed was visiting many of the wineries that were also just a short drive away.

    I thank your both so much and we look forward to our next return.

  7. Cain

  8. Kevin and Rhonda Luttrell

    The accomodation and facilities at the nest were perfect for our quiet get away. Angela and Nash were genuine hosts ensuring our we were welcome. The spa was amazing and the view from our pod was relaxing and completed our desire for a rest. We will return.

  9. Mark and Rebecca McClurg

    You are amazing hosts Angela and Nash and you made our stay so relaxing. The accommodation and facilities were perfect for our quiet get away and we will most certainly be back.

  10. Paul and Sharon Redmond

    A beautiful experience in a wonderful setting. The location was 6 minutes drive from the Queenscliff ferry and located close to the local attractions. The linen was of high quality with thoughtful touches right throughout. Angela and Nash were the perfect hosts. They were knowledgeable about the area and passionate about their little piece of paradise. The only regret is having to leave… Thank you and see you again.

  11. Rose and Aaron van Herk

    Thank you Angela and Nash for a memorable stay. You made us feel so welcome from the moment we drove in. You have created a beautiful atmosphere to relax in. All the fine details thought of, fluffy robes,a warm throw, lots nibbles to eat and drink, great coffee machine with an awesome frother and a super comfy bed made it all perfect. Our highlight was sitting in the spa watching the stars in the evening, and during the day staring out at the picturesque views whilst contemplating life. A weekend we will never forget. Thank you.
