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. With laundry facilities close by, stunning views, koalas on the property to see and a wonderful ocean view, created a perfect relaxing time for our family. And... More

Stunning views from the bedroom, deck and delightful corner window seat. Spacious living area with wood burn combustion fire. Great little kitchen (no oven but a cooktop and a microwave). Located about 10 mins north of Apollo Bay, cabins are set high on the hill above the road giving awesome views of the ocean and land. Perfectly situated for a... More

The views over the ocean can change from lovely when it's calm to spectacular when it's not. Secluded location but close to Apollo Bay and the lovely Wye River with terrific walks along the beach. The welcome pack is great as is the complimentary local wine and there is a guest laundry. Wildlife can be viewed at the site and... More

The reviews for these cottages are accurate. Secluded yet within a short drive to Apollo Bay . Wonderful views of the ocean sitting beside the wood burning fire with a glass of red cannot be beaten. Fully equipped kitchen with breakfast supplies and a complimentary bottle of wine are very nice touches. Friendly owners add to the overall feeling of... More

From beginning in Melbourne to the end this miracle of nature continually excites and surprises you. See the fantastic twelve apostles and wonder at London Bridge. And never be bored. Restaurants and hotels so that yo can break this journey are in abundance.

We stayed for just two nights & could not fault the cabin or the experience it offers. Cabin is exceptional & location & views amazing. Could have stayed in Apollo Bay but would have missed this peace of heaven. We will be back.
