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.

Secluded cottage with magnificent views of the sea. Bryan is a great host offering many tips about the surrounding area to visit. The cottage is lovely, modern clean with very comfortable bedding. The welcome hamper which includes wine and nibbles is terrific. We saw wallabies on the property and the gorgeous birdlife is plentiful. There are 3 cottages which are...

We stayed in cottage 3, secluded and with a panoramic view of the surf from a spacious deck or through the wall of windows. (The entire coastline of this part of the Great Ocean Road is breathtaking.) We were welcomed by a care package, including two bottles of wine and groceries to get us started. A bottle of champagne was...

Where to start - location is fabulous with a 'to die for view': 10 mins to Apollo Bay Cottage 1 had everything you could need and was great for the family of 4 with everyone comfortably housed The best part though was Bryan and Joan's hospitality with nothing at all being too much - even down to borrowing some beach...

We booked to stay here for 2 night over Christmas. What a fabulous cottage. Comfy beds, lovely interior and mod cons. Bathroom lovely too. The view is amazing and the walk up to see the resident Koalas in the trees an added bonus!! We used the BBQ and lived sitting reading our books on the balcony. A fabulous setting for...

Many thanks for your kind thoughts and review. We hope to see you again soon...but this time without those annoying insects that arrived on Xmas day. Fortunately they have not bothered us again, it must have been the unusual humidity. Warm rgds Bryan and Joan

Having just spent a delightful week at Points South we would highly recommend both the cottages and Bryan's hospitality. The location is perfect - being about 15 minutes from Apollo Bay and overlooking a pristine stretch of coastline. Spotting koalas that reside on the property was a bonus and something guests with children are sure to enjoy. Everything possible has...

As a family of four, we spent 4 lovely nights in the middle cabin. Appointed so well and Bryan the host made us feel completely welcome, as if it were our own home.
