This is the second year my cat has stayed at Rosewood Farm (last year for ~10 days and this year for 7~) and I won't be taking her anywhere else. Love the new renovations, the office/reception area looks amazing!! Everything is always clean and the staff/owners are caring and attentive.

We had a great first time experience with Rosewood Farm. They were able to fit my 2 cats in with very short notice and they were well looked after. The 2 people I spoke with were fantastic, happy to answer questions and phone calls. My cats came home happy and healthy. We will use Rosewood Farm again and I will recommend to others.

Recently, I had to go overseas for several weeks and was searching for a place for my cat Friday. The places I visited in Melbourne offers a cage with no view to the outside world. I was not happy as Friday was an outdoor cat who loves spending time outdoor during the day. While checking out places in Melbourne, someone mentioned Lara. I did some googling and found Rosewood Farm in Lara. I went all the way to Lara to check it out and was happy with what I saw. Even though it was still a cage but each cat has a window to themselves which they can sit all day if they want and watch the world go by. Feedback from farm owner Steven was Friday was enjoying himself and surprisingly quite social as well. I would recommend this place to board your cat.

Very reasonable cost for excellent facilities and caring staff. My cat was well looked after and will definitely use their services again.
