Great Location, Needs maintenanceRvz123
Great location for family holiday, with exceptional views over Apollo Bay. Unfortunately the unit cleanliness is somewhat disappointing. It needs a good spring-clean! The unit had a mouldy smell when we arrived, there are spiderwebs and spiders in every room (been there for a while by the looks of it), hair and rubbish in main bedroom WIR, and the couch in the living room needs a deep clean. Some general maintenance issues - no door handle on sliding door (dining room area), bar stool being used for DVD player upstairs (guess the shelf broke at some stage and is missing), dishwasher door is starting to break down, microwave light is not working, light globes out in living room, downstairs bathroom and main bedroom, sliding door in main bedroom very hard to operate and fly-net door latch is broken so it can't be locked (handy if you want to leave the door open for fresh air, but still want security). Main bedroom TV does not show all the TV channels (perhaps a problem with the antenna? re scanning channels didn't work), and the DVD remote batteries are flat. Alfresco decking is in serious need of oiling, and moss is starting to grow on it. Umbrella stand is completely rusted and broken (why is it still there I don't know), and the Acapulco outdoor lounge chairs have broken wires that stick out (poor attempt at fixing them). The regular alfresco arm chairs are usable, but are clearly missing the timber on the arm rests. There is no Wi-Fi as promised. Not sure why? The reverse-cycle air conditioner is only upstairs, so downstairs can get a bit warm. Overall, this unit has great potential. It's location and views are out of this world, but it needs a bit of TLC.
This is a beautiful house that we return to several times a year, mostly for the location. Disappointing this time that the fireplace was noisy and made if untenable to have on for longer than half an hour, a shame given the cold and wet day on Monday. Lounge room also now missing a rug, so feeling bare and cold. We really love the location of this property, and for the rental all of these elements should be in top shape. Hope this gets resolved quickly as its a good property.
Great Family GetawayAdam
My wife and I travelled here with our four children (aged 10 and under) and thoroughly enjoyed our time away. The previous reviews are still all relevant, i.e. some general maintenance / TLC is required and it was quite musty when we arrived (nothing a scented candle didnt fix) but that said it was a perfect location for what we were after including an amazing view. We used it as our base for five nights (we added an extra night when there) and ventured to Lorne, Otway Treetop Climb, Platypi Chocolate (wouldnt bother going there again FYI), and everywhere between Port Fairy / Campbell on our travel in and out. We also enjoyed just relaxing locally: sitting on the balcony listening to the rolling waves; beach walks and exploring the rock pools; Mariners Lookout; playing board games overlooking the ocean etc. All in all, if we venture back to the GOR / Apollo Bay for another family vacation we would definitely stay here again.
Perfectly peaceful, beach front locationCheryl
I had a wonderful one-week stay at Bayview Villa! As I had to take some work with me for my stay, the WIFI was really important and didn't let me down. The location is perfect for quiet strolls along the beach or rock hopping along the ocean's edge. I could hear the waves crashing all day and night. I loved being a little bit out of the main township of Apollo Bay - which was only a quick drive away if I needed anything from the shops. Plenty of blankets and great heating during what was a chilli few days and nights. I did have issues with the door locks, which were fixed promptly. The door from the lower level main bedroom is completely rusted shut at the locking mechanism and couldn't be unlocked or opened. It was noot so much of an issue for me as it was cold, but if I were to stay here in Summer, it would be ideal to be able to unlock and open the sliding door to catch the breeze on a hot day or night. The outdoor furniture was in need of repair. Again, this wasnt so important for my stay in the cooler months, but in Summer, the outdoor furniture would have been much more important. Kitchen was stocked well with everything I needed too. Thank you for a great stay!
One with the seaEllen
Thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The home was comfortable and spacious and you could soak in the sound, feel and smell of the ocean. Everything was as advertised. I did not give it a five rating because as someone who rents homes globally for my work frequently, some kitchen essentials (for my needs) that could have been better. Still highly recommend.
Unbeatable views and locationCandace
We have been coming to this property for the last 11 years, either as a family unit or with our aunt and uncle! It has the best location and views! The linen and bedrooms are great and the layout is superb for families. Unfortunately, however this last time it was clear that the house is in some dire need of TLC and general maintenance. A few of the doors don't work properly, the kitchen is not as well equipped as in the past, the outdoor deck chairs etc. need some repairs (cushions would be fabulous for the large loungers), the wind-out windows need oiling, the screen door latches need to be fixed and the lounge furniture needs a good clean. We look forward to returning again next year and enjoying our stay to it's full extent .
Fantastic place to stay for the whole family. Stunning views of the bay and just meters to the beach. Will definitely be back again.
Prime Location, magnificent viewsDeb 28
Bayview Villa was a delight to stay in. Clean, comfortable and magnificent views from the living rooms. The apartment was well appointed, close to Apollo Bay shops by car and in a quiet location. Thank you! Will be staying there again!
Great location but in need of TLCMelbfamily
Fabulous views and great access to the beach but the place needs maintenance, new kitchen utensils and some of the furnishings are looking very tired.
A beautiful relaxing stay.Would recommend. The view is spectacular and the house is clean and comfy. A few new cooking utensils, pans etc would be useful but other than that we loved it.
Enjoyed the view immensely however the property was tired and not maintained to the price standard. Yes! The gas bottle for bbq was empty and left us in limbo for meal. BBQ should be thrown out in council hard rubbish collection! A good inspection should find light bulbs. missing, showers not cleaned and rangehood revolting.
