The kitchenette includes a small fridge and two electric hot plates, and is equipped with all the essentials - including a saucepan with steamer, and a frypan, as well as a coffee plunger, juicer, tea pot and a hand blender.

There's also an excellent stand alone electric panel heater in the room. A small amount of tea, coffee and sugar is provided. Wifi password available on request. Check in and out times are usually pretty flexible - just ask.

The studio is half of the downstairs of our house and is blocked off with a lockable door from both sides. Separate access, but shared driveway so please park in the bicycle/parking lane out the front on the street. 15 minute walk into town and to the beach. Located at the back of town.

As well as myself and my partner living upstairs, we have two young boys - a 20 month old and a 3 month old.

Apollo Bay is the most beautiful town. We have lived in the area for 5 years and love it. Feel free to stop and chat if you see us coming or going, otherwise we'll leave you to it.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Sophie's studio was more than what we expected. It was clean, neat and the bed was super comfortable. Sophie took the trouble to put some toys in the studio for our 16 months old baby and that absolutely won him over!thoughtful Sophie has also provided us with fresh towels, clear driving directions and absolute privacy. The studio served as our perfect base between the 12 apostles, its many other points of interests and Apollo Bay. Thank you Sophie and family!

  • A nice place to stay if you're looking for a basic private cabin. Best to arrive here by car. Small kitchen where we cooked our own meal. The bed sleeps very comfortable, despite the fact that it squeaks a bit. The cabin is below the house, so you do hear people walking above you in the morning and evening. The host Sophie and her husband are friendly and open persons. Very nice meeting them.

  • Had a great stay at Sophie's apartment. It is a really lovely apartment, very clean and everything we needed was provided. It was spacious and comfortable for two - a nice place to relax after a days travelling. Sophie was very friendly and helpful, and had left lots of useful information about the area for us to read. The apartment is in a great location, within walking distance to the shops and restaurants along the shore. Apollo bay is a beautiful place to visit, and I would definitely recommend Sophie's apartment to anyone visiting the area.

We've been living in Apollo Bay for just over 2 years, but have been down this way for the last 5 years. Before that, me and my partner were traveling around the UK and Europe, always seeming to end up in tiny fishing villages in the middle of nowhere - which, come to think of it, is again where we have ended up! Now that we are temporarily housebound with young kids, it's great being able to return the favour and host a traveler or two.
