Getaways – ’Unique’ Qii House

Heather McFarlane-Kolb’s Qii House at Lorne has been shortlisted in the Unique category of ​2018’s HomeAway Holiday Rental Awards.

As the new home of Stayz, HomeAway describes the awards as promoting “Australia’s greatest holiday homes”.

“We’d like to congratulate Heather on being shortlisted in the ‘Unique’ category for the 2018 Holiday Rental Awards,” said HomeAway spokesperson Simone McDermid.

“This year’s shortlist features amazing properties from all over the country and we are very proud to include them in the list.”

Qii House and other shortlisted entries were chosen based on a criteria that focused on the quality of the guest reviews, property image quality, holiday home description, hospitality and relevance to the category.

The shortlisted homes will go through to the next round where each property will be judged by a panel of experts including Wendy Moore, Editor-in-Chief of Home Beautiful and host on House Rules, and Charlie Albone, Australia’s most-prominent landscape designer and Selling Houses Australia personality.

“We’re very excited to be shortlisted for the Holiday Rental Awards,” Heather says.

“We work very hard to provide a comfortable and memorable experience for our guests here in southwest Victoria and this recognition is testament to that.”

The Unique category highlights properties with a blend of distinctive architectural design, unusual amenities and comfort that holidaymakers come to expect from holiday homes.
