We had an amazing 4 nights stay in cottage 2 and would most definitely come back again. The place was beautiful inside and out. We loved having the fireplace on and looking outside. Bryan made us feel very welcome and as we arrived late in the evening on our first day, he had left the lights and heater on for...

Perfect, all you could want is provided for and more. The roll of the constant crashing waves on the rocks below your cabin is the only sound you can hear. Bryan left a bag of extras such as cereal, chocolates along with 2 bottles of lovely wine. A weber BBQ and log fire make all complete. Will be back.

This would have to be one of the best self catering places we have ever stayed in. We spent 4 nights in cottage 3 with uninterrupted views of the ocean, and a bend in the Great Ocean Road! The cottage is one large room and a bathroom with walk in shower and a small bath. There is a screen 'divider'...

My husband and I spent two nights in one of the three cottages at Points South By The Sea and absolutely loved it. We were in Cottage number 3 - apparently the newest one - and we were blown away by the view, the stylish interior and the very generous welcome pack of goodies provided by our host Bryan. The...

Spent a lovely 5 days with family in Cottage 1&2. These cottages are supremely comfortable with lovely bedding and the glorious sounds of pounding surf to lull you to sleep. The window seats are a fabulous spot to while away hours of reading, contemplating the waves or snoozing. Take binoculars! Lovely bathroom but loathe showers over a bath and clocked...

Can't fault this place one bit, beautiful in every way. The host Bryan is absolutely wonderful and very helpful in suggestions. The location of the cabins is 'second to none' When you arrive there is a very generous hamper waiting for you.

We stayed in cottage 3, secluded and with a panoramic view of the surf from a spacious deck or through the wall of windows.
