The Poolhouse is situated at the rear of an 1880s meticulously renovated Cottage called Heatherlie in the beautiful township of historic Maldon.

Fenced on one side by a French lavender hedge and the other by a magnificent climbing white Wisteria and Virginia Creeper, The Poolhouse is an eclectic mix of Tuscan/French Provincial and Modern day Country. It has an eight metre high cathedral ceiling, bagged cement walls and its stunning centrepieces would be the open fireplace (Seasonal) and the amazingly beautiful French chandelier which had been sourced locally. The beautiful french doors framed by white Italian linen curtains lead either to the shimmering azure inground solar heated pool (pool is covered during cooler months) or to its own private courtyard treed by three pear trees. (Pool Towels are provided)

The kitchen comprises of recycled lime washed cabinetry holding a magnificent porcelain farmhouse sink. Equipped with a fridge, kettle, toaster, coffee plunger, crockery, cutlery and glassware and other holiday stay essentials.

TV/Netflix/ Wifi 

In the bathroom there is a lime washed corner vanity and mirror, a quaint lime washed towel stand and two sweet very french robe or towel hooks. A selection of toiletries, hairdryer  and luxurious towels are provided for your use. Walk in shower with no step for easy access.

Climbing up the pine staircase to the mezzanine level is the bedroom. There is an impeccably made queen size bed with antique chairs used as bedside tables. There is a chest of drawers to store personal items.

Looking out the double French doors whilst snuggled under the covers at the expanse of iron rooftops and smokey chimneys on foggy winter mornings is enchanting.

The Poolhouse is a mere 700 metres from the picturesque shops with their jutting verandas that frame the Main Street in Maldon. They are host to numerous cafes, restaurants, hotels , local businesses, homewares and antique stores.

The Poolhouse in Maldon is approximately a one and a half hour drive from Melbourne CBD and is available for short romantic getaways or longer stays if required.

New from 06 March 19 Gas BBQ in the courtyard.

There is nothing about this property that will leave you wanting. The host is amazing. Perfection at it’s best. Very private. Absolutely above standard comfortable private accommodation. Beautifully clean cottage. Pristine clean solar heated swimming pool. Was just divine. Will be returning very soon.

We didn't want to leave

We've just got home after 3 nights at the pool house and after seeing the photos onscreen Kate's holding me back from grabbing the car keys and zooming off back in the direction of Maldon. Folks you won't have any trouble finding this place as Jamie met us the front and we just couldn't miss his huge welcoming smile. Everything is thought of, and provided in an elegant country fashion, soooo cosy, classically comfy and complete carefree. The owners provided more than you'd expect - tantalising treats to welcome, scrrrrrumptious posh towels to snuggle in after using the luxuriating toiletries, and a bed to dream in until the local birdlife awakes from the window. The owners are totally discrete but when you do bump into them (in the street in Maldon) they joyfully ensure you have all you need. And offer more. What a wonderful world, is the pool house. Plus - Jamie and Maldon Getaways get it ALL right, from booking to greeting to anything else. Very professional. Now.... where's those car keys again?......

Luxury and relaxation

The Poolhouse is just a beautiful place to stay. It is private and the space is immaculate with lots of luxurious personal touches. We very much enjoyed our stay and the beautiful town of Maldon. We even enjoyed a dip in the pool. We would highly recommend.

We loved this place, it was beautifully appointed quiet and peaceful, just what every couple needs. A short walk from the historic town.
