Coastal cool for two. Our little one bedroom beach house is 100 steps to the water. Its sunny north wall ( that's right..wall ) slides open to bring the outside in. There are decks, a sea view and the sound of the waves. Village a ten minute stroll.
We have always loved little beach houses, so we decided to build one. Of course, it is obligatory for a beach house to have a beach.....ours is opposite. You will find comfortable accommodation for one or two people in our new, open plan, little house. We like that the architect included a sliding wall that can open the living area to the outside deck on sunny days. We also like that we can batten down the hatches in winter and turn on the log fire. The bedroom has its own little deck too, just because..... There is plenty of cooking equipment. Yes, wine glasses, coffee and teas included. All linen is provided.
Apollo Bay is beautiful. It straggles around its harbour at the foot of the Otway Ranges, looking out to the mighty Southern Ocean. It is a sea change kind of place with real live locals. You will find locals fishing around the harbour, playing golf or footy, walking in the national parks, surfing, swimming and at the Saturday market- we don't mind a chat or a coffee either. Other locals include koalas, wallabies, whales and plovers.
  • The house was beautiful. We had a wonderful stay in a very comfy bed. Kitchen was super clean and easy to navigate. Will definitely be back.

  • The Little Beach House was such a lovely, relaxing and a great excape from the city for us. The house is such a fabulous design, warm, comfortable and a perfect couples getaway. Being just metres from the water - to wake up and see the water was also delightful We enjoyed our mini break at the 'little beach house' and would love to return some time soon! Debra and Andrew

  • We loved the house, the ability to open it right up so we felt like we were outside. Very neat and comfortable home to stay in and a short walk from beach.

  • The little beach house was great! Even better than the pictures! Great location, lovely view from the deck and comfortable home.

  • What an amazing location and an amazing beach house. Thank you! To literally step out of the property and onto the beach was amazing. Falling asleep with the sound of crashing waves and waking up to the breeze coming through the full window of glass was unforgettable. Will definitely be back!

    Our house is modern, private and close to the beach. We grow our own vegetables so guests are welcome to help themselves to whatever is growing at the time. The allocated area to guests, aims to encourage the outdoors with an upper and lower deck. The bedroom has immediate access to the upper deck and ocean views can be enjoyed from the bed! However, there are also block out blinds. We provide continental breakfast, which can be enjoyed on the deck or on our dining table.
    This place is more suited to couples. We have furnished it with the view of outdoor enjoyment and use. The deck is an area that can be used for breakfast, lunch, dinner or drinks and is surrounded by native trees, wild life and is five minutes walk to the Southern Ocean. Skenes Creek goes hands in hands with outdoor living, The Southern Ocean, swimming, sun and sand.
    As we are at the end of the road, there are few neighbours. The neighbourhood is predominantly made up of beach houses owned by families, who tend to visit during the holidays.
  • We were lucky to be the first guests Anastasia welcomed into her home and what a treat it was. The room is lovely and has an amazing view of the ocean and Anastasia is a wonderful host and made us feel very at home. It's a very relaxing place, so try and stay longer than we did.

    Long Tide retreat is an incredible 170 acre property on top of a hill with majestic ocean views. The ocean & forest completely surround you in what is a sensory wonderland. Your eyes rest on landscapes of stunning blue horizons & wise old trees that merge with the earthy and calm guest house, creating a surreal setting that brings together all the elements. A truly magical space to rest & retreat from the world. Come & re-awaken the senses. You won't want to leave!
    Long Tide retreat is a place to truly relax, explore, and dream. It's a powerful place to awaken your imagination, and to just be. We have opened our guest house to share with the world what we consider to be a very special space. The property consists of 2 buildings 50 metres apart. Our home is a remarkable timber and stone octagonal 2 story house, whilst the American style barn guest house is an equally unique and beautiful 2 story barn style building constructed completely naturally out of local and recycled timber. It is quite simply a magical space for you to come and rest, and immerse the senses into the surrounds of nature. No road noise, no neighbouring houses. Just peace and quiet. It's so serene all you will want to do is sit, watch, and listen. To get the most out of this place, you will need to stay a couple of nights at least... Nature abounds, koalas regularly visit, as do wallabies, kangaroos, kookaburras, king parrots, fairy wrens, wedge tailed eagles, just so many magical animals including the luminous glow worms at night. The bird life alone is phenomenal, and so incredible to listen to at first light and also dusk when the kookaburras start laughing. Oh and the owls! So cool. You might get a glimpse of our resident Powerful Owl, or the Boobook. Our favourite part of day is that dreaminess of sunset, where the sky is often ablaze with intense colours that fill the atmosphere. The elevation expands the horizon in a way that really opens up the sky. And the night sky on a clear night is just something you have to witness. With no light pollution, the stars will literally take your breath away. It is a totally different sky to anything you will see in the city or with lights around. If you aren't feeling like heading to the beach, just stay in for a glass of wine on the deck or in front of the fire, or do some star gazing out the window from the deep claw foot bath. From the luxury of the pillow top beds with 1000 thread count sheets to the organic tea and coffee on offer, we have created this space for you to stop and really relax. The accommodation itself is natural, earthy, warm, and very comfortable. The building was built chemical free, and is so unique with its natural and recycled timbers and textures. The guest house comes with a very spacious living area complete with fire place. The living area can easily seats 4 guests with 2 comfy couches to spread out on, and 2 big arm chairs. There is a TV with regular local TV channels, and a blueray DVD player for any movies you may want to watch. The fireplace is simple but just magnificent when it's cold outside, and we will provide all the timber you need to keep you warm and cosy. When the storms roll in (in Victoria that can be any time of year!), there is nothing better than curling up on the couch by the fire with a book and a cup of tea. Adjoining the living space we have a quaint, clean, and functional kitchen completely decked out with everything you need, as well as plenty of dining space. It's perfect for a night or a week away. In the bedrooms we have 2 new pillow top mattresses. The main bedroom is equipped with a king bed, with a large wardrobe space and window out to the garden. The second bed is queen sized and is found in the upstairs mezzanine which is accessed via the attic ladder. It's a great space to rest at night. The roof height is around 170cm at it's peak and pitches down either side, so it's cosy, and gives a feeling of being in a place of magic and wonder. The roof window is gorgeous, and you can view the sun or moonrise to the east, and gaze and that wonderful starry sky on a clear night. All beds are supplied with quality linen and beautiful natural soft feather doonas. All towels are also supplied, soft and fluffy. The new bathroom is absolutely luxurious and adjoins the entrance downstairs, with a beautiful polished concrete floor, natural textured timber walls, and extra large shower complete with a huge waterfall shower head. There is a gorgeous enamel claw foot bath, which can be enjoyed day or night, whilst watching the bird life in the neighbouring forest, or the stars on a clear night. There is a second toilet and vanity upstairs also. Back upstairs the deck extends out from the living and kitchen space, and is also very spacious with table and chairs and a fully equipped bbq. It's from here you will want to do some koala and bird watching, whale watching in winter with binoculars, and take in the sounds and smells of the forest and ocean. We have organic coffee, and a selection of 10 beautiful organic teas from our good friends at Love Tea. We also provide fresh honey from our bees on site when it's seasonally available, and occasionally we will have eggs available from our chickens. Bring your own just in case! The place has a new washing machine, which we provide environmentally and septic safe hypo-allergenic powder for. Dale operates the clinic 2 days a week from underneath the guest house. If you would like to book in for a treatment or discuss Osteopathy with him please let us know before you arrive to see when he is available. We have 3 chocolate labradors, Freckles the eldest, Frankie the middle, and Phoenix the youngest who is Frankie's daughter. They are wonderful and generally love any opportunity to meet people. Phoenix likes to bark when someone arrives to let everyone know what's going on, but she is adorable and will always respect your space. We have 2 functional bee hives, and a chicken coop with 3 girls laying eggs most days. If we are around we can introduce you to them or you can appreciate them from a distance!
    Skenes Creek North is a semi rural but mostly forest coastal landscape. To give you an example we have about 3 acres of cleared space and the rest (164) is natural bush. Our neighbours are similar, some have a little more cleared space for orchards and grazing animals. We are about 400 metres above sea level. As such we are often above the sea mist in summer, and can also be right in the cloud mist in winter. It's magical. Skenes creek itself is in front of us and is a beautiful picturesque town ship on the edge of Apollo Bay. The town itself is just houses and a beach, with the exception of a caravan park, which sells newpapers, coffee, and milk. The area is pristine national park as part of the Otway Ranges National Park and an endless number of beaches that extend in both directions along the great ocean road. It is a natural paradise and is so fun to explore in either direction, including inland where you will find old growth forest, waterfalls, and some tourist attractions such as the Otway treetop walk and redwood forest. The township of Forrest is a haven for nature lovers, in particular moutain bikers due to its extensive range of trails. It also has a wonderful local brewery, an equally cool general store, and is soon to be the home of a boutique chocolate factory open to the public.
  • Dale and Jackie have created a very special journey and destination for guests. My partner and I have stayed in many places in Victoria (we live in Melbourne), but this by far was our favorite. While driving to the house, you can spot the local wildlife, including Koalas. The road twists and turns up a hill away from the ocean. Once you come upon the crest, you have a magnificent view of the surrounding farms, woods, and of course the ocean. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the doggies and Dale. He showed us around the cottage and property, describing all the love and energy that he and Jackie put into creating the cottage. Which, by the way is stunning, with a beautiful view to the ocean, plenty of light, and so many thoughtful touches that it feels like home. The night was perfect for a bbq (which worked super well) and a salad made with delicious greens from their garden. The spot is tranquil; you can disconnect from the rest of the world and just enjoy the stars and sounds of the animals. We slept great. Breakfast was healthy and just right for a day on the road (yoghurt, yummy granola, fruit). We left wishing we had more time to discover Dale and Jackie's magical place, but we hope to be back. If you are looking for a beautiful, quiet spot to enjoy the great ocean road, with great access to local facilities, then this a super pick. Thank you Dale and Jackie!

    Nicole2017-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Dale and Jackie for letting us stay in your beautiful wooden house! It’s so dreamy. The house is clean and beautiful designed, eco friendly, with a nice selection of organic tea. We were mesmerised by the view, sleeping with the sound of nature under the stars and milky way is such a bless. Only one thing that the oven was not working, it wasn’t a big problem cus we could use the grill too—Jackie quickly came to the place to fix it but no luck, she offered us to use her oven at her place instead which we thought that very thoughtful! Thank you for being such a wonderful host. Definitely will be back there when we get the chance. Xx Dinda and Andy

    Dinda2017-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • We were looking for somewhere peaceful to unwind and had high hopes for Jackie's and Dale's place, given the photos and description. We weren't disappointed. The primary space upstairs in the barn is spacious and yet cosy (would be great in winter also given there is a fireplace). The kitchen was very well appointed and served our purposes perfectly, cooking each night. Downstairs there is a large bathroom that has been very nicely done and feels quite luxurious. The surrounding land is beautiful to say the least. There are views from the balcony to the ocean, and one can spend a good amount of time wandering about the block or strolling back along the driveway and then local road towards the main road. It's an easy 10 minute drive down to the Great Ocean Road where there are numerous places to park the car and go for a swim. Jackie and Dale are great hosts - very friendly and always on hand to help if need be. Highly recommended!

    Robin2018-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! Thankyou Dale and Jackie for sharing your amazing space. From the moment i drove down the driveway and the ocean revealed itself i couldnt believe how lucky i was to be in such an amazing location. Everything was perfect thankyou, i especially loved meeting your chickens & the 3 dogs too, very friendly! Definitely will be back for a longer stay to enjoy some bushwalking, will be recomending highly to all my friends. Cheers again, Glen

    Glen2017-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous farmhouse with outrageous views over the bush and out to the sea. Lovely, hospitable hosts.

    Alex2017-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Jackie and dale’s place is amazing to get away and enjoy nature and the wonderful wildlife all around! Their three dogs are adorable as well! I highly recommend to step out at night and take a look at the stars :)

    Ashita2017-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • If you know any better you'll look no further! Dale and Jackie are one of the loveliest hosts I've stayed with and the house is equally as lovely. We were beyond happy with our choice to stay with them and are already thinking about when we can return. Their description of the space is EXACTLY what you arrive to when you drive up the driveway. Although weather wasn't on our side, we were fortunate enough to enjoy the fire place, warmth and beauty of the barn and its surrounds. Needless to say, we didn't want to leave and definitely wish we could've stayed longer. It was the perfect place to relax, unwind and appreciate the fresh air. Communication was amazing, especially with the unpredictable Victorian weather this weekend. We made it in the end, with Dale and Jackie giving us regular updates along the way. The barn and the surroundings were warm, cosy and fully equipped with everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. The attention to detail didn't go unnoticed. From bedrooms to the gorgeous bathroom, I couldn't recommend this place enough. There was certainly nothing I could fault and we couldn't thank Dale and Jackie enough for opening up and sharing their barn with us..

    Vesna2017-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Dale and Jackie were absolutely lovely. They were incredibly kind and welcoming and we congratulate them on the phenomenal job they've done renovating and decorating the barn - the space we walked into was beautiful, calming and so thoughtfully put together. We slept in the loft bedroom which was cosy and comfortable and gave us a gorgeous view of the stars. The little touches were really appreciated too, the wonderful tea and coffee in particular. I really couldn't fault Dale and Jackie's place and we'd love to come back and spend much longer there.

    A room in a quiet house with shared kitchen bathroom and two living spaces. A short walk ( 1/2 a km ) to the beach to swim or rock pool hop. Many native birds. The sound of the surf and the wonderful milky way to view in the evening.
    Comfortable queen size bed, perfect for a good night's sleep.
    Skenes Creek is 6 KM from Apollo Bay with its many restaurants. There is a sleepy rural feel to the area. The area is well treed. There are lots of native birds and the occasional koala. Beacon Point Restaurant is close by, and is open for breakfast lunch and dinner on the weekends. The restaurant is just a couple of km up the hill with spectacular views of the coast.
  • Clean room. Very quite. Penelope is quite informative and very helpful to my Great Ocean Road trip.

    Our classic beach house is perfect for a family holiday or a couples weekend away. Just a five minute walk to beautiful Skenes Creek beach. Comprising 3 bedrooms, comfortably sleeping 6 adults and two kids, the house has a modern kitchen, large living area and a huge deck overlooking a fully fenced yard with ocean views. A couple of streets back from the noise of the Great Ocean Road, you'll sleep in peace and quiet, woken only by the local birdlife or occasionally the resident koala!(he snorts)
    A classic 1950's beach house, with three bedrooms, modern kitchen and cosy living space. Perfect for a couples weekend or a larger family holiday. There's a large deck with views of the ocean, outdoor dining table and BBQ for your summer dinners and a cosy fireplace for those colder winter nights. 2 bedrooms have queen size beds, the 3rd has a queen bed and a set of bunks. We also have a portacot if you have a tiny one with you. The huge backyard is fully fenced with a large trampoline and there is an outdoor shower with hot water for rinsing off after the beach. The house is equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, dryer and air conditioner. The room with bunk beds has a TV, dvd player, kids books, dvds and board games.
    Skenes Creek is a lovely little hamlet, situated between Wye River and Apollo Bay. The beach is 500m from the house with sand to the right and rock pools to the left. Abundant birdlife visit the property. Bower birds, black cockatoos, crimson rosellas, kookaburras and the local king parrots will eat from your hand. It's best not to feed the cockatoo's though as they can be very loud! There is also a resident koala in the front tree. Further afield, Skenes Creek is the perfect base for you to explore the Great Ocean Road and the rainforests of the Otway National Park. There are so many great walks to choose from including sections of the Great Ocean Road Walk. One favourite is The Shelley Beach Circuit (2km) which starts from the Shelley Beach Picnic Area (20 minutes from the house). Look out for koalas and echidnas along the bush track. If you're looking for a stunning rainforest walk try the Lake Elizabeth track (2km) which is a 40 minute drive from the house. The 12 Apostles are the highlight of the Great Ocean Road and are just over an hours drive. It's a quick 5 minute drive to the shops and restaurants at Apollo Bay. The most delicious fish and chips can be found at the Apollo Bay Seafood Cafe. The famous Wye Beach Hotel at Wye River is a 20 min drive. A pretty special spot with a huge deck and uninterrupted ocean views. Saturday markets on the foreshore at Apollo Bay. A great place to pick up local berries, homemade jams and cakes or a souvenir.
  • Awesome place and perfect location to explore Great ocean Rd. And Otways. House was very comfy and well equipped. Birds come every day for a feed and koalas can be spotted from the verandah. Highly recommended!

    Jessica2016-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Bo's house is comfortable, light, airy and a lovely place to stay and explore the region. Our kids loved it so much they wanted to move there. My parents from the UK were amazed at the parrot eating from their hand, the many other local birds and the resident koala. We loved having bbqs on the deck watching the birds and the ocean. Perfect stay!

    Olivia2017-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Bo's place is a great spot to stop on the Great Ocean Road. Had a great time and wish we had the time to stay longer. Easily accessible, neat and tidy. Thanks.

    Leighton2017-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is surely a unique place to stay. It is rustic, but very comfortable. The best part about the stay were the wild birds that visit every morning for some hand feeding. Definitely run out and get some bird feed in Apollo Bay if there is no seed left. Our children also spent countless hours bouncing in the trampoline. The lack of WiFi resulted in some great family bonding time around board games and puzzles. As for adventures, we particularly enjoyed our day at Shelly Beach. We saw Koalas on the hike there, and fossicked for shells for a long time. We also took the long drive further along to 12 Apostles, saw some echidna, took some sunset pics, and then stopped at Melba Gorge to see the glow worms on our way back. We also did the Otway Zip Line, which the kids liked, but I was not as impressed. A bit expensive and a curvy drive to get there.

    Steve2017-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Bo's place! The house is very well equipped and within easy walking distance to the beach while still tucked away in a quiet street. The outdoor shower is great for cleaning sand-covered children! Bo is a great host, who responded quickly to all my enquiries. Definitely a place to visit more than once!

  • Nice clean accommodation. Everything was provided and landlords are very nice, helpful people. I was going to give it four stars if it weren’t for there was no hot water supply for almost two days (resolved at last but was a hassle and inconvenient).

    Gloria2017-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely long weekend. Its a great location and the house had everything we needed....including a coffee machine! Very comfortable beds and we were nice and warm in side with the fire. Absolutely loved our stay.

    Clancy2017-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • 5 mins from Apollo Bay town which come with IGA supermarket. Apartment is great and amazing in the morning. Suggest not to arrive too late as that is what we did and it's a little confusing to find the correct apartment. But before that Joy and team will send an instruction to your email. All rooms come with heater and everything is good. From parking to the maindoor will have steps and it is not easy if u are carrying big luggages etc. Suggest to pack ur stuff into small hand carry will be easier to move around.

We enjoyed playing the nearby beach and cooking at the place with the very well equipped kitchen. The booking was very well managed with proactive communication before, during and after the stay. Will come back.

  • Our first airbnb experience was with Lisa and I couldn't of picked a better host. The house was impeccable and Lisa was so lovely to deal with. Thanks again Lisa!

    Rebekah2017-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • We have just had one of the most amazing, relaxed and happy family Christmas ever staying at Lisas place in Apollo Bay. The pictures of the property and the incredible view are so accurate as is the description of the rooms, facilities and beach access etc. We loved the very easy communication and felt confident if there was an issue it would be dealt with immediately. The extra information about local interests was so helpful and we did many of the suggested activities. Lisa offers everything you could possibly need in a home away from home - even Christmas decorations and a gift basket (thank you so much for that). We highly recommend Lisa and her beautiful house.

    Robyn2017-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful stay! What an amazing view from the upstairs deck, bedrooms and living room. Lisa was the perfect host - there were so many lovely touches in the way the house is decorated and even Easter eggs out for us on arrival! There are some things to navigate as we had little ones and grandparents (e.g. steps), but Lisa let us know all of that in advance and we didn't have any problems. The beach below is beautiful and great for flying kites, walking and wading through rockpools. We didn't swim because it was a little cold. Highly recommend for families or small groups. Everything was easy and as described.

    Clea2016-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully decorated home with an amazing view! Kitchen is very well equipped. The house was clean and Lisa is always quick to reply.

    Ann-Kathrin2017-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa was a fantastic host. She was very quick to respond to any queries and provided a lot of helpful information to help us get settled. The house was perfect for our group of 8 adults and 1 toddler. The kitchen/dining had everything we needed to cook and eat together and the shops being a short drive away made it easy. The bedrooms are a good size with heating downstairs and upstairs for the colder months. The views of the beach (which is less than a 5 minute walk away) was pretty amazing to wake up to as well. We really enjoyed our stay at Arun dell. Would highly recommend!

    Liza2017-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Arun Dell and the surrounding areas are beautiful and it is conveniently located close to Apollo Bay where we started the GOR tour. The inside of the house is clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. Lisa is very gracious in providing very precise instructions on getting to and into the house and giving us helpful tips on food and sightseeing options. We certainly enjoyed our stay there and don’t mind going back if we visit GOR again.

    Sally2017-10-05T00:00:00Z

    Smell the ocean from the balcony and listen to th sound of the waves as you go to sleep, Surf Lodge is reminiscent of a ski lodge holiday home. Recently re-decorated with a modern style, this property offers casual and comfortable accommodation for large groups and families. Located on a quiet street and within minutes to the beach, Surf Lodge has a large entertaining deck that captures the sun and comes with BBQ and outdoor setting.
    Linen is not provided with the house, so you must bring your own sheets, pillowcases, towels, bath mat, tea towels, hand towels etc. Apollo Bay Breaks can provide a linen pack at $35 per person. Based over 2 levels, the main open-plan living, kitchen and dining areas are on the second floor; this bright space has a fully equipped kitchen. Flat screen TV, Blue Ray DVD player, split system and wood fire heater are just some of the amenities to help you enjoy your stay. The second floor has a small double bedroom off the main living area, a bedroom with a queen bed to the rear of the property with robes and 2 bunk rooms.

The garage has a laundry with washing machine, dryer and trough and a sofa and TV for the kids to have their own space. This is a pet friendly property, but there is no outdoor kennel and the garden is not fenced at present. There are many pleasant walks, both beach and bush, within close proximity of the property. You will enjoy your stay in this comfortable and relaxed home, a great base for exploring the Great Ocean Road. There is a fee of $45 per pet.
    Quiet tree lined street, within only 5 minutes walk to the beach.
  • Amazingly scenic location, great property for a big group of families. Our kids loved the games provided and the bunk beds. Thanks Trisha!

  • The location of Trisha's holiday house is good. There are many rooms for big family gathering. There are 2 rooms with 2-3 bunk beds. The only inconvenience is that we need to bring our own linens and towels, which add a lot into our luggages. But Trisha communicated it clearly before booking. Thanks Trisha for letting us staying at your house.

    Queenie2017-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect location for the holidays , very calm and an amazing view of the ocean from the balcony !! We used the BBQ in the balcony and had a nice time with the family on the dining outside .. The house is very clean and lots of space for a family !! Thanks a lot for offering the house to us ..

Hosts were very friendly, showed us around, introduced us to the 92-year-old-cocky, and even gifted us some relaxing music to listen to as we headed back to the city. Thanks!

Makes you ponder a simpler life. Our room was spotless and had everything we needed :)

The host is our neighbour, it is very convenient if any help is needed. They are lovely people, gave us greetings whenever they meet us. The only one cons is that, there is no Internet access in this area, so better have a decent cellphone plan. We will stay here again next time we visit the Great Ocean Road.

  • Our stay at the Kookaburra cottages was great! Leslie, Ebony and Mike were lovely hosts and offered good advice for activities to do in the area... And shared some yummy apples from their orchard. There was a really relaxed vibe and the view of the ocean and sound of the waves rolling in just added to the peacefulness. The set up was basic but had everything we needed and a nice spa as well. It was clean and comfortable and we'll definitely be back one day.

  • Had a fantastic stay at Kookaburra Cottages. The farm and cottages are colourful and full of character and charm. (Like an old best friend who always puts a smile on your face and fills your heart with warmth) Such a relaxing and private space, short drive into town (But why bother) all the while being a very central base to drive to the many walks and lookouts that are close by. Beach access is across the road. Take the time to walk up to picnic hill To watch the Sun rise or set. This is a must. However I enjoyed Just soaking up The views from the cottage and giving the fire a stoke when it warranted... There is heating if fires aren't you're thing) The overall atmosphere was simply perfect. We had no trouble at all navigating the burner on the BBQ and microwave and toaster to cook up a tasty dinner and breakfast. (who knew that cooking mushrooms in sundried tomato oil was the way mushrooms should be cooked, or will be from now on) Don't forget the red, crackers, cheese and what ever tasty goodness you desire. Bring along your favourite tunes and a loved one (or go solo) That's all that's needed for a good stay. Communication was as great as much as it was prompt. Ebony was very helpful in offering some great places to explore.

  • The place is magic. It really is. Even better than the pictures, and when does that happen. Ebony and Leslie are brilliant, so's the 93 year old cockatoo. I couldn't recommend it more

    Nathan2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay in the Barn. Ebony and Lesley were there to welcome us at check-in and show us around the property. It was the perfect weekend getaway...beautiful ocean views in a tranquil setting. Everything was absolutely perfect and I'd have no hesitation in recommending Kookaburra Cottages to family and friends. We hope to visit again soon.

    A recently renovated beach house with a lovely fresh, crisp feel with magnificent ocean views.
    A relaxed beach side town, a very short walk to the beach which is great for swimming, surfing or fishing. There is also a river inlet.
  • The Dreamery is a comfortable home with two lounge areas, a kitchen with amazing views of the ocean, and well equipped. A sunny outside deck was beautiful for breakfast or just sunning yourself. Three bedrooms are tastefully decorated, and comfortable. The bathroom has an amazing rain shower. A short walk to a beautiful, clean, ocean beach. Apollo Bay is only minutes away driving, and has good coffee, nice restaurants, and plenty of activities. A really nice house to sit back and enjoy the beauty of the coast.

    Sue2017-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Dreamery consists of multiple split living and sleeping areas each with great views of the coastline. The rooms were spacious, as were the external areas to the house, including the main deck and an additional side sunning area. The rain shower was also a great feature. Our host was responsive, helpful and attentive to our requests.

  • This house was perfect for my family of 6! We really enjoyed our stay, we had an amazing view from the balcony which can be seen from the living room as well, perfect spot for a nice breaky with the family. The house was very convenient, easy access to shops and THE BEACHH :) Lisa was a great host, quick response and was so helpful! Thanks for having us, will definitely be back.

    Rhonna2017-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa's place was really relaxing and perfect for me and my husband for the weekend. We had amazing weather for winter and sat out on the deck in the sun enjoying the views over breakfast. The open fire was great during winter (note this is the only heating in the house, so you do need it on in winter) - it heated the whole house. The views and open lounge area were the best thing about this house - really lovely and relaxing. We appreciated the chocs and coffee provided too. There was a very comprehensive manual too and check in was very easy. Thanks for the stay.

    Max2018-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The view from the lounge and bedroom of the ocean was fabulous and the property was clean. Air conditioning was not working which was very hot being upstairs. It would be nice to have had some milk to have a coffee. Perhaps even longlife would suffice. Lisa was great when we told her the air conditioning was not working when we arrived but came out next day and could not fix it which was unfortunate being 33 deg days. Hopefully all fixed for next guest. The bed was fantastic and very comfortable.

    Carolyn2017-12-01T00:00:00Z

    Recent Guest comment: "Great location - excellent views and close to shops without being suburban. The resident koala just topped it off."
  • George was a great host, very helpful and communicative, the house is exactly as the photos portray, very comfortable and liveable, beautiful views and even a friendly koala! The house has everything you need for a very relaxing stay. We loved the wood fire, coffee machine and spa. It is also a close drive to Apollo bay for shops.

Great views with open plan living and many amenities to make our stay delightful. With both bedrooms downstairs, it made for quiet rest when others were still up.

  • This stylish home has a stunning view overseeing the ocean, which immediately overwhelmed everyone once stepped in. It's quiet yet keeping its proximity to Apollo Bay where we can get all things we need. This home is clean, tidy, 100% equipped, spacious, with a big balcony. We get everything we need there. I must also mention that George the host is very responsive and caring. I always got immediate response from him. It's suitable for family retreat, couple getaway, friends reunion trip or to create any sweet lifelong memory. Be warned that you may wish to stay in the villa all day long not wanting to go out hahaha :p We were able to make a time lapse video of a sunset too. We definitely will stay in this home again if we have any chance/luck, because I have checked when we can come back again but its booking is over 95% in the coming weeks already! Good luck!

  • The room was exactly what we hoped for, private, romantic, cosy and has the most incredible view. The wood fire was a great feature as it was a very cold night but we managed to stay warm and still enjoy the beautiful sea views. The whole property has so much to offer we definitely recommend taking the walk up to the lookout to see the beautiful sunset. Highly recommend this place and the hosts Ebony and her family are very welcoming and accommodating

Ebony was so accommodating and made great suggestions for day trips and places to explore locally. We enjoyed watching the sunset on top of Picnic Hill with the whole place to ourselves! Can't wait for the next visit, will definitely be taking ourselves back to Kookaburra Cottages!

  • Max's place was ideal for our group of 6. The views are breathtaking, & kitchen sizable -so it was a no brainer in spending our evenings cooking up a storm & sitting by the fire in the lounge. Max was easy to communicate with online & was helpful in his suggestions & for places to go in the area etc. A great place for a family or group of friends for a fun & relaxing getaway!

We definitely had the best time and would love to visit here again in the future.

    Sarah2016-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • The view from the house is great. The whole ocean is right in front of the balcony and the two suite rooms. The house is very spacious. Only the wood fire is not large enough for such a large place. There are many potable electrical heaters provided though. Max is a helpful host and can be reached easily during our stay.

    Vivian2017-08-18T00:00:00Z

Great location: close to shops and restaurants, also it’s sort of in the middle of all the other attractions. Max is a great host he was very responsive and helpful, he even sent us a message with lots of tips which made our stay even better. Can NOT wait to go back!

    Secluded high on hills above Apollo Bay, The Eyrie is a beautiful, architect designed, 2 storey, split level home perched over the Southern Ocean, with waterfalls, forest and views at every turn. Just as perfect for a couple as for a large gathering.
    This is a very special place, so in your planning try to allow a few days at least to see and experience all that is here . The most common comment of our guests is that their stay wasn't long enough. But we also understand the real world doesn't always allow for that. So starting with the house. The Eyrie caters for it's up to 8 guests very comfortably, but remains wonderfully cosy for just 2. We feature original, local art throughout the house, mostly landscapes of the area, to further enhance the uniqueness of this special place. Every room features spectacular views, even the toilet! The Eyrie is designed with 2 bedroom/bathroom areas. One, with 2 bedrooms (1 Queen bed and 2 Single beds) and on-suite, is off the lounge on the lower level, while the 2nd area is upstairs, again with 2 bedrooms (each with 1 Queen bed this time) and sharing a separate bathroom. Because we cater for from 1-8 people, we ask you only use the bedrooms you need. Check out the floor plan in the photos. Living areas have split system heating and air-con + the real open fire with the wood box a metre away (more wood in the nearby woodshed). There are 2 lounge seating areas and dining in-between. Flat screen TV and full stereo with phone plug, CD & DVD are there of course. The tasteful kitchen, featuring beautiful blackwood benches and doors, has all the new facilities and equipment you need inc microwave, elec oven, gas cook-top, full fridge/freezer, large dishwasher, toaster, etc. A fully equipped laundry sees out the in-house facilities. There are 2 main outdoor areas, the large deck out sea-side has tables, chairs and that view! That view with the land below dropping steeply away into a deep gully and then on out to the sea. The deck is accessed from the lower rooms. The north facing spacious patio out the back, with the 6 burner BBQ/lid/side burner, picnic table and seats, gets the most sun and enjoys a protected and garden setting. Access is via a garden catwalk from the deck, the kitchen and laundry. The house is surrounded by lovely gardens. Plenty of parking is available. On a 27 acres, the property has a mix of forest and grazing land (we run some sheep here). There are many places to walk, enjoying the diverse views from the high grazing paddocks and then plunging into the forest along our forest stone pathway and viewing/absorbing our beautiful waterfall. Check out the eucalypt trees along the driveway for koalas! And maybe by the time you come we'll have finished our new Tree-fern gully walk! Warning: you'll find it hard to leave!
    If you haven't been in the area before it's a spectacular combination of coast and mountain. Great driving, surfing, fishing, swimming (cold water!), beach lazing and rock hopping. Skenes Creek Surf beach is down the bottom of the hill, 5km by road. As you no doubt know, The Gt Ocean Rd. is a fabulous asset of the area and a must explore option. The 12 Apostles are also hugely popular and about an hour away (but better you take the whole day to explore). Then there's the Great Ocean Walk, a truly world class walk with sections available as day walks , numerous inland walks in the National Park, inspiring waterfalls, great picnic areas, fabulous MTB single trails nearby if you're so inclined. There's the outstanding Chris' Restaurant 2km down the hill and everything cosmopolitan available in Apollo Bay 15 mins away with numerous cafes and restaurants. That's if you can drag yourself away from The Eyrie itself.
  • My family and I had a fabulous time at the Eyrie. I loved the wall sized living / dining room windows overlooking the ocean, and the fact that every bedroom had beautiful windows with the ocean views as well. The place was clean, tidy and very well presented. One thing to be aware of when travelling in late autumn / winter is that bedrooms do get a little cold. Electric blankets in the rooms helped, and so did having some thermals to sleep in. All in all Eyrie is a fantastic place with amazing views. It is well worth a stay. Andy was a super helpful host and really responsive with all my queries. I will definitely be recommending this place to my friends.

    Ilya2016-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • This house is all about the view which is fabulous in any weather. The garden is nicely landscaped and well cared for. Wwe made good use of the well equipped kitchen and big dining table. There were 7 of us and we all found places to lounge about without feeling crowded. Take warm clothes as it really can be cold up there, even when days are sunny. Andy was very friendly and has done a lot of maintenance on a scenic walking track around the property. Make sure you visit Andy's personal waterfall.

    Margaret2016-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • The Eeyrie was an absolutely wonderful experience! Beautiful view from every room; sunsets were especially breathtaking. Due to some rainy weather during our stay, we also managed to catch many rainbows! House is fully equipped with basic condiments (sugar, salt, pepper etc), full sets of crockery, cooking utensils, stove, oven, microwave, the works. Other than the appliances being a bit dated, everything worked fine! Rooms and toilets were clean (but no soap or shampoo provided). Andy was super helpful, and came out to give us some tips on where to go and things to do around the area. Thanks for the great stay! Will definitely consider staying again if we're ever around the area.

    Joel2015-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • The house and scenery was amazing. The photos do not do it justice. Didn't go into town much but didn't feel as though we missed out because we just relaxed by the house with close friends. Andy provided us with a friendly welcome and useful info regarding the local area. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle from the city and enjoy some R&R.

    Josiah2015-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at the Eyrie was lovely. Andy checked in with us not long after we arrived to make sure we had settled in and let us know he was not far away if we needed anything. He gave us some good recommendations on dining options in the area, which ended up being fantastic fare (La bimba). There was a slight hiccup when there was an unexpected power outage, however we didn't need to contact Andy to let him know, he popped in to make sure we were ok and had everything we needed which was nice. The views from the house are spectacular and even though there was only the two of us, it didn't feel too large. However, it could easily accomodate 6-8 people. The waterfall on the property was also worth the walk. Thanks Andy for a lovely stay for our anniversary!

    Melita2015-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Stay at Andy's is a memorable experience. Sitting on the hill, the house has a fantastic view of the mountain and sea for all rooms. And there is even a small area of forest there too. We were lucky to got 2 big parrots landing on balcony in the morning, and there is said to be other interesting local animals also. Andy is very nice and helpful, kept contacting us before our arrival to make sure everything is ok, and gave us welcome and suggestions when we arrived too. One of my best BnB stays. Will definitely recommend to friends!

    Ke2016-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at this peaceful, home with spectacular views. Thanks Andy till next time.

    Chandra2016-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had wonderful time at Andy's. Great ocean views, the bush, wildlife, comfortable and warm (loved the open fire!). Easy drive to town, but we hardly bothered as house provided all we wanted- rest, relaxation and privacy. Easy checkin, prompt communication, Andy has thought of everything.

  • Wonderful quiet and relaxing getaway. The cottages have a relaxing and unique decor with a very natural theme. Our room had a great view of the ocean and a veranda to sit and relax under which made it very cozy and difficult to leave. We made use of the BBQ and spent a lot of time around the cottage because it was so pleasant. The cottages are perfectly placed just outside of Apollo Bay. The few minutes drive out of town means it's far enough to be quiet but close enough for a quick breakfast. Being centrally placed in the Otways made it easy to get out and see the sights. Highly recommend. I'll be coming back.

  • The Kookaburra Cottages are a wonderful retreat, you can see the time it has taken to nurture such a garden and build up the property. Ebony was a terrific host making us feel welcome. The ocean room provided us with serene views of the beach and the sound was lovely to fall asleep and wake up to. Nice and clean and a neat position, only 5 mins drive to Apollo Bay and a great platform to explore the Otways!! Plenty of books and games, TV. I'd love to check out the Barn accommodation next time..:)

  • We absolutely loved our time at Kookaburra Cottages! From initial great communication with Ebony, our entire stay was filled with warmth and hospitality from the whole family. Ebony was prompt and clear with responding to messages re: availability and facilities. When we arrived at the beautiful beach side accomodation we were greeted with a tour of the property which was very helpful. Our room was neat and clean and had an incredible view of the beach. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves was definitely a highlight for us. The pool was also a fantastic! We highly recommend this unique, cosy accommodation.

    Deservingly known as paradise by the sea, Apollo Bay & Skenes Creek is midway along the majestic Great Ocean Road, in the shelter of Cape Otway and on the lowest slopes of the beautiful Otway ranges. Valleys just a few kilometres out of town are full of rainforest, streams, waterfalls and fireflies. Once the province of timber workers and farmers, the hills are now also occupied by artists, holiday makers and beach lovers. Every water sport under the sun can be enjoyed at Apollo Bay - surfing, fishing, swimming, diving, and boating of all sorts. Bush walking in the Otways, wet or dry, is spectacular. The rain and wind rarely reach the lower levels of the older rainforest which has its own lush climate. Down the Great Ocean Road at Cape Otway are some of the most breathtaking walks in the country. Find lots of information on sights and things to do in our house compendium!
  • Excellent location, house and service. Recommend!!

    This beautifully maintained, modern, comtemporary, air-conditioned, double-story property is nestled amongst the gum trees where Koalas can be seen in their natural environment featuring superb views overlooking the ocean from the expansive deck area, living and kitchen areas. This property is situated just a very short stroll from the Skenes Creek beach which can also be viewed from the decking area. LINEN provided.
    We put in lots of love into our holiday home. You can enjoy living next to the ocean and wake up to the sound of waves every morning. Also, come with spa, outdoor balcony, bbq, powerful 7.8kW air conditioning unit, large LCD TV and COMPLIMENTARY AUSTRALIAN WINE for every booking!
    Skenes Creek is located in The Otways where you can find some of Australia's best rainforest scenery in the Otway Ranges amongst tall trees, ancient plant life and lush ferns. Walk among giant tree ferns at Maits Rest, see the glow worms at Melba Gully, or experience the full beauty of this rainforest paradise on the Otway Fly Tree Top Walk. The following local attractions are highly recommended: Marriners Lookout, Cape Otway Lighthouse, The Telegraph Station and WWII Radar Station, Maits Rest Rainforest Trail, Erskine Falls and Otway Fly Treetop Walk. Of course, you should not miss the Twelve Apostles along the Great Ocean Road.
  • Superb location, beautiful place, superbly appointed. Great to have a BBQ and then breakfast on the deck overlooking the ocean. Highly recommended.

  • Had a lovely weekend at Treetops Retreat with family including two young kids. The house was well appointed in a fantastic location only 5 mins drive from Apollo Bay and a very short stroll to the beach. The board games were a great touch to help keep the kids entertained. Only suggestion for other travelers is to pack warm clothes and blankets as the wood fire heater is nice for ambience but didn't do a great job of warming the majority of the house. There are electric heaters in the bedrooms which did help through the night. Alan was a great host and communicated really well. Wouldn't hesitate to return. Thank you!

  • Great place to stay, beautiful views and great host.

  • My friends and I wanted a get away and we got it! This place is an awesome place to get away and relax. The views are perfect, the entertainment room is spacious. Hearing the sound of the ocean waves at night was very relaxing. It is also in a great location. Away from traffic sounds, but close enough to Apollo Bay city. We enjoyed our drives into the Otways, out the Twelve Apostles, London Arch, Loch and Gorge, The Grotto - everything is about 1.5hr drive total out to the famous destinations, but still a beautiful drive from the house. We were blessed to see a koala in the trees out front after speaking with one of the neighbours - she mentioned there is a common area at the front of the apartments that we could explore. If you like birds, make sure you get some bird seeds as you can feed a range of birds from King Parrots to Cockatoos from the balcony. We have made note to Alan, our only downfall was the water system. We wanted to use the spa bath but only had lukewarm water available...this also affected some of the showers and we ended up having a cold shower - this issue is hopefully being checked out and fixed. If you are aware the weather is going to be a bit chilly, then make sure you bring some warmer clothes (even in Spring!), as it gets cold in the house and only has two small portable heaters for the rooms downstairs (there is a fireplace upstairs, but apparently 4 girls and Youtube still isn't enough to keep a fire going!) Communication from our hosts was very good - longest wait for a response was maybe 10mins. We are so grateful for Alan and Fairlie opening up their place to us - we had a wonderful time and would love to come back for sure!

    Comfortable room in a quiet home away from the buzz of Apollo Bay. Filtered sea views from the living area. Sound of the sea and native birds. Half kilometer walk to the water's edge. Close to Apollo Bay but not in it. Available for one person only.
    Comfortable double bed, perfect for a good night's sleep. The room is not available for two people.
    Skenes Creek is 6 KM from Apollo Bay with its many restaurants. There is a sleepy rural feel to the area. The area is well treed. There are lots of native birds and the occasional koala. Beacon Point Restaurant close by is open for breakfast lunch and dinner. The restaurant is just a couple of km up the hill with spectacular views of the coast. Great surfing and challenging swimming beach at the bottom of the hill. Big waves to watch if nothing else. Beautiful seascapes everywhere.
  • Nice room

  • Penelope (and her darling cat Billy) made me a very warm welcome. The house is a little up the hill, but not far from the main road. A very short stretch of the road is unsealed, but this is no problem at all. From the balcony one can see a small bit of the ocean and with the windows open one can hear the ocean too. The room was small but cozy, and since I spent most of my time either watching exotic birds eat the peaches on the neighbor's tree, or sitting in the kitchen chatting with Penelope, it was more than big enough. The bed was super comfortable and everything was clean. I could use the kitchen and even got a shelf in the refrigerator. Penelope took the time to take a walk with me down to the beach, which is quite spectacular. Even though the weather was not the best during my stay, I made some beautiful photos there. I would have enjoyed spending my entire vacation with Penelope and Billy! But maybe I can come back some day, I will certainly try ...
