My husband and I have been coming here for over 20 years and we just keep coming back. Its location opposite Marengo beach make it a perfect base for exploring the Otways and the coast.

Stayed at the Apollo Bay Cottages with my wife, four year old daughter, and my in-laws, and we all had a wonderful time. If you're into beaches, relaxing, family time in front of the fireplace, and barbecues, then this is definitely the place for you. The cottages themselves are very clean and well appointed - kitchens are well equipped plus... More

We stayed here for a long weekend, and on check-in were upgraded from a 2 bedroom cottage to a three bedroom cottage. The cottage was spacious, clean and well equipped. The beds were incredibly comfortable and sheets/covers crisp and clean. Although we didn't use the kitchen much it was well stocked and kitchen knives were sharp - something you don't... More

They weren't that bad when we were there but I can imagine in summer it must be a nightmare. As I said the... More

Cottage style accommodation that won't win decorating prizes but is scrupulously clean and well maintained and located just outside the town centre of Apollo Bay. We've been here several times over the years and it always offers the same high standard of service.

Lovely stand alone cottages in great location across the street from the beach. We stayed here for 2 days with our 2 children (4 and 8) and wish we could have stayed for longer. Our cottage was fantastic (kids adored it!). Clean, spacious, huge lawn for the kids to run around on, fireplace (which we used both nights!) and kitchen,... More

I’ll be honest, I had very high expectations of the place considering the reviews I’d seen and I'm pleased to say that we loved it from the moment we arrived. It was everything I was looking for when booking a place for myself and my girlfriend for a much needed, relaxing weekend away from Melbourne. The cottage was spacious but... More

We stayed at the Beach and Reef early in the year and loved it so much we bought our friends back. This can be used as a luxury couples retreat or full 4 bedroom luxury home. We had a friendly King parrot and a beautiful koala in the backyard. We haven't stayed in the cottages but they look lovely and... More

“Cottages face the ocean which is on the other side of the coastal road. To minimize any issues with road noise would suggest the cottages furthest from the road.”
