This is a cute, cosy, well appointed and charmingly decorated cottage. However please note, there is now a house being built next door and you may not get the quiet, relaxed stay you planned. Our first two days they were working very loudly from early morning until sundown. Also, the attention to detail of the servicing is severely lacking. We found items in the cupboard dripping wet, a dead cockroach in the washing up rack which was soaked and dirty, out of date pantry items, a knot of hair in the main bed, and a nest of hair in the shower. The heater is insufficient so you should know how to use the pot belly stove if it's cold. After initially being very rude about our complaint, the real estate later gave us a small token voucher for the Brewhouse, but it wasn't really enough to make up for the inconveniences.
A cosy beachside cottage, perfect for a quick school holiday getaway. Even without the sun this home and location provided us with the perfect home from home.
Gorgeous Cottage for Relaxing GetawayEllen
Our family of four really enjoyed the week away at this little cottage. Compact but well equipped we wanted for nothing during our stay. Gorgeous views of the ocean and trees made for a relaxing environment. Definitely recommend!
Fantastic Beachside GetawaySteve
Barca View Cottage is a comfortably appointed holiday home, with a nice beachside vibe. The cottage is located uphill in a lovely lightly wooded area of Skenes Creek, allowing for fantastic views through the trees to the beach in the distance. There are no shops in Skenes Creek adding to the sense of seclusion. Apollo Bay is only a short distance away, allowing for shopping, restaurants and wide selection of take away food. The cottage is well laid out and appointed to allow for a relaxing stay. The kitchen is basic, but provides for all holiday needs. The large outdoor terrace makes great use of the views. We would highly recommend Barca View Cottage for a comfortable, beach-side holiday stay.
We stayed at Barca View cottage for a 2 night stay during a family holiday exploring the great ocean road. The cottage is small but very comfortable for a small family, and tastefully decorated with lots of special little touches. The outside deck was a fantastic place to rest and relax, with an outdoor setting which was perfect for dining on warm evenings. The beach nearby has amazing rock pools, and we fell asleep to the sound of the waves at night. Skenes creek is an ideal location, close enough to drive in to Apollo Bay for dinner at night, but far away from the hustle and bustle of tourists. Would highly recommend this property to others!
