As a paraplegic and architect I have stayed in many so called “accessible” accommodations, both here and overseas but never in such a delightful house that met our every need.
The Grampians at the beginning did not seem to have any disabled accommodation but to happen on this rare find was so heartwarming, with its design, location and very helpful owner Andrew whose sincere wish is to assist people with disability.
The graded access to the house, no steps, accessible bed using a mobile hoist spacious bedroom and bathroom, timber floors and sheet vinyl graded shower floor and heating and cooling all combined to afford us a holiday we will neverforget.

It’s a wonderful world

WOW is all I can say, Shady Gums is wonderful, we had a great time.
We cooked on the first night and found the kitchen was well equipped and appliances were easy to use. The beds were very comfortable and were easy to operate. We used both the high chair and cot and found them very suitable. I found the toys and the kids enjoyed playing with them so much I also enjoyed reading them the books. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Shady Gums it was peaceful and enjoyed the local wildlife (the kids loved the birds). We also enjoyed the luxury spa, beds and could easily get to local attractions walking.
