Love it here it’s our 3rd time hope to be back next year. Cape paradiso is like paradise

Seeing that you had a 5-star experience is the best thing we could hope for. Your review means a lot to us.

Beautiful ocean view, but the house needs some love!

Ludmilla B - 1st April 2024

Beautiful ocean view, great fireplace and location but the house is quite run down and needs some maintenance. Everything is falling apart… We’ve been to this house about 5 years ago, and since then nothing changed except for the new sofas. It will be great to bring some love to this beautiful place.

Reply 19th April 2024

Hi Ludmilla! Thanks for your review, we are happy you enjoyed the location and view of this property and appreciate your feedback regarding maintenance. The owners of the property are looking into doing some upgrades this winter, so hopefully next time you come it will look different!


Katherine S - 17th January 2024

Absolutely disheartening, nothing like the pictures shown, house was filthy and smelly, no maintenance what so ever, broken windows, marks on walls, stains everywhere, dirty toilets, aircon not working, bedding and pillows atrocious, upon requesting new pillows a highly intoxicated man dropped off linen, not even pillows which we asked for, holiday house from hell, we will definitely not be staying here again EVER.

Reply 18th January 2024

Hi Katherine, We appreciate your feedback and apologise for the disappointment. We take great pride in the cleanliness of our properties. Upon review of your booking, it shows that we offered to send the cleaners back but you refused. An order for a new aircon was already made which will be installed at the property very soon. There are no broken windows. However, some of the fly screens, are bent but it's just the normal wear and tear. This is the same with the wall marks. About the pillows and bedding, the property does not include linen which shows on the listing details online. We also brought plenty of pillows. Brand new pillows. There is no filthy smell on the property, as it is well-ventilated and gets lots of sunlight. We offered to relocate you to another property but you declined. Rest assured that the owner is aware of some minor maintenance here and there that needs to be done.

One of the most relaxing Holidays

Hi Helen, seeing that you had a 5-star experience is the best thing we could hope for. We can't wait to have you back!


WARWICK C - 21st February 2023

Our second stay at Cape Paradiso and this time a full two weeks. We just LOVED it, as I knew we would; it is such a lovely property, practical, family friendly, well positioned and omg what a view!!! Can't wait to come back for the third time....

Reply 27th July 2023

Wow, thank you for your fantastic review, Warwick! It's stories like yours we love reading. This motivates us to do more. We can't wait to have you back!

Awesome location

Paul R - 14th July 2022

Great house plenty of room and close to everything.

beautiful view

susan E - 24th May 2022

Great location house nice and cosy and clean. Only let down was the couches very uncomfortable definitely need new ones as the view was lovely so would have been great to have comfy seating to enjoy it more. The other let down was lack of proper handrails on lower steps which made getting in and out of house pretty dangerous especially when wet.

OMG !!!

Helen N - 17th May 2022

This is paradise what an amazing place to stay you have everything you need! We will definitely be back what an ideal home thank you to the owners for sharing this magnificent house

So Relaxing

Joanne O - 26th April 2022

Loved the view and the fire place made it very cosy. Access up the driveway is very tricky not to mention the lack of handrails up to the stairs.

Our favourite home

Nathan S - 13th March 2022

Back again. Possibly our sixth time! We absolutely love this home, it’s perfect for us and our fur babies. Beautiful walks and easy beach access. Incredible views.

Thank you for your review! We are so glad you keep coming back to this stunning property. Hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Great Ocean Road Holidays

Paradise at Cape Paradiso

Claire B - 29th January 2022

Cape Paradiso is a lovely holiday home and has everything you need for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. The views are spectacular, the lounges comfy and the location is second to none. The teenagers loved the outdoor bath (which is plumbed to hot water!) and we enjoyed cooking in the spacious kitchen. The stairs to the property are quite steep but after a couple of days we all got used to them. We loved staying here and had a fabulous holiday!

Lovely location

Catherine - 24th December 2021

Thanks for a lovely holiday! The house is clean and well maintained, with a stunning view of the ocean. The kids loved the toy box, including buckets and spades, just 2 minutes walk from the beach was perfect.

Once again, our favourite home

Nathan S - 12th July 2021

Our third time here and it gets better every time. So relaxing, perfect for us and our pooches, amazing views, everything we wanted. We can’t wait to come back again. Our favourite home.

Great house.

Karen H - 10th April 2021

The views are the main attraction in this house but it’s also comfortable, warm, and lots of room. The owners seem to be bird watchers, so the house comes with a bird guide, binoculars & telescope, and you can watch the threatened Rufous Bristlebird hop up and down outside (seriously, once you see them you see them all the time).

Beautiful views - very peaceful

Aileen A - 20th February 2021

The views are gorgeous and the location is very quiet and the beach is 5 min walk. The house is very comfortable good beds, lovely wood fire and the open air bathtub is a treat ! Lots of bird life, resident koala and unfortunately some tiger snakes.The only negative is that the house could have been a bit cleaner and tidier in the kitchen ie: cupboards, saucepans, range hood and some dishwashing liquid and baking trays would have been appreciated. We enjoyed our stay.

Great Location and views

Nicole - 26th January 2020

The views from this place were amazing and can be enjoyed from the main lounge, 2 of the bedrooms and from the large deck. The outdoor bath was luxury and the generous private parents room was nice escape at the end of the day. Access to the private dog friendly beach is only 5 minutes away and Marengo Beach only 10 minutes through the caravan park, remove the need to walk up Panorama drive. Well definitely be back.

Our Week Away Was PERFECT!

NathanIman - 4th June 2019

Stunning location, amazing views, spacious home, we loved it

Stunning views

Linda - 12th June 2018

We had a wonderful time in this comfortable holiday home with spectacular views over the beach. So relaxing. Plenty of firewood to keep us warm too. The bath on the deck outside added to the relaxation, just the sound of the birds and the waves in the background.

Fantastic Views

James1946 - 24th March 2018

Cape Paradiso's position affords it fantastic views of the ocean, however the steep driveway and stairs would likely be challenging for some and particularly elderly people.

Best views and quiet spot

Steph - 6th August 2015

The advertised photos were probably taken 10 years ago, so some of the furniture and the house is showing wear and tear, but it is very comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and modern ( though no coffee machine) has quite a few cupboard essentials like salt, some spices, cooking oil, coffee/tea, washing up liquid etc, has very effective reverse cycle aircon in lounge/kitchen/dining area, as well as wood heater and plenty of wood, so we stayed in middle of winter and the house was warm. We had the bonus of king parrots, corellas, and other birds come and feed at the balcony, The house is on a very quiet street, the view is fantastic, would happily stay again. If you have a pet though, not a properly enclosed yard, but there is a small fenced off space near building (maybe 2m x 8m?) that is not suitable to leave a big dog there for more than a short time. Parking is also a little awkward, as road and drive are narrow, but otherwise, house is great.

Great views short walk to water

Lena - 20th September 2014

Loved the hot tub under the stars it was wonderful
