Relax in the bush with sea views

Anouchka C - 11th June 2024

We felt so welcomed at Bennett's Beach House from the impeccably presented house, to the invitation to wander the property to spot koalas and the abundant supply of firewood to keep us cozy. The perfect, relaxing location for our family getaway! Thank you Doug, Faye and Evan for sharing your beautiful property.

We are thrilled with your review, Matthew. This means the world to us. It has been an absolute pleasure hosting and serving you.


Sumi M - 22nd September 2023

The house was comfortable and spacious enough for our big family. The view of the ocean was amazing along with the sounds. The variety of board games and movies made up for no wi-fi.

Hi Sumi, Thank you for your wonderful review! We are glad to know that you are satisfied. Until next time!

A Perfect Location , Spectacular Views in a Comfortable Home, Spotlessly clean.

Aven H - 8th February 2023

The house is in a secluded peaceful setting, all we could hear was ocean and bird song, did not hear a single car from GOR even in the busiest time of year. We appreciated the house was spotlessly clean, well equiped throughout and well maintained. Ocean views are stunning. We enjoyed visiting the koala daily. The beach is close by, walking distance. We did not want to leave and very keen to rebook this special home . Thank you Bennetts Beach House we loved you.

We love you and your wonderful review, Aven! This motivates us to do more. We can't wait to have you back!

Lovely location and a great house

Peter M - 17th July 2021

This is a lovely place to stay. We'll taken care of by the owners.

Leah Cotte - 10th May 2021

Loved our stay in this lovely place. It was incredibly quite, and the wood fire was a huge bonus for the cold nights. The view was beautiful, and nothing better then listening to the waves crash when going to sleep.

Shaun Critten - 25th April 2021

Amazing place, very clean, very well equipped.

Cheryl Daye - 25th March 2021

Very comfortable house. Thank you

Ben Hornstein - 13th February 2021

Fantastic beach house getaway with friendly hosts ????

A hidden gem..

Shane M - 2nd February 2021

From the moment we walked in you could tell that a lot of TLC a has gone into the cottage. The decorations and furnishings were spot on. Probably the best fitted out kitchen we have seen in a long time. The spacious cottage gives you a feeling of relaxation from the onset. The owners should be highly commended on providing such an excellent place to stay and unwind. It’s a cottage for all seasons. We certainly will not hesitate in booking there again.

Susan Crawford - 26th October 2020

An absolute retreat- the birds are amazing as is the view of the sea and the fireplace makes it cosy even in cold, rainy weather.

Great place and hosts.

Trevor - 20th June 2020

We stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The location is spot on being only 15min to Apollo Bay but the feel of being all alone on the coast. There is a good view of the ocean to the south east but its not panoramic due to the vegetation. The house is private, comfortable and well equipped. 2 toilets, 2 showers, bath and washing machine makes a long stay with more than one family convenient. We also saw koalas in the bush right next to the house every day we were there. I would definitely stay again.

Another relaxing stay

Sarah - 6th November 2019
