We loved this place

Sue M - 26th January 2024

A simple Scandanavian feel with lots of light. A book case with interesting books. Tasteful furnishings A back deck with views over the mountains where you can watch the clouds while drinking your morning tea. We found it spotlessly clean and the bushy (small) block gave a sense of privacy. OK, no dishwasher or broadband connected but that just added to the holiday feel. Even our ten year old wants to return.

Castalia is like staying in a friend's well-cared home; the living space is large with bedrooms at either end of the house. Pillows, blankets and bed covers are good quality, and there’s a bath tub too. Yet it’s a holiday house that is in a quiet location; even though houses have been built on small blocks, you don’t really see or hear your neighbours. And you have everything you need including washing machine and dryer, a deck to eat outside on and watch the cows and the hills. The shops and beautiful beach (the main reason for being there) are in walking distance. It was a piece of heaven in amongst the great nature scape that Apollo Bay and surrounds offers. Very happy to stay there again.

Needs some love

Otway Vista was nice upon arrival however, throughout our stay it was evident it needs a lot of love. The couch needs replacing. It’s old & extremely uncomfortable. The only other furniture to relax on were x2 very hard cane chairs. Not enough chairs vs guests able to stay.The dish rack was broken and could have caused dishes to fall and smash. The symbols on the oven had faded so you can’t tell what setting to cook on. The fridge kept freezing our food. It was sad it was just so tired.

Hi Hannah, We appreciate your review. Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience. We value your feedback to improve customer satisfaction. However, we'd like to share that the couches and dishrack at Castalia - 3 Otway Vista have been replaced. Additional chairs were added—enough for the number of guests. About the fridge, the dial needs to be changed to adjust its temperature. We hope to welcome you back again at another time.

Castilia is light, spacious and in a beautiful quiet corner of Town with the most amazing views of the magic hills of Apollo Bay

Holiday review

Chris K - 20th January 2021

Nice location. Affordable. Standard of cleanliness was poor and below standard. We completed a thorough clean upon arrival, noticing several nesting thrips, insects, cobwebs and bugs throughout the house- all guests were bitten and inconvenienced throughout the course of the stay. Bushman’s spray or tee tree oil is not recommended but essential if you spend time indoors at this property.

Good value and well equipped home.

Amanda S - 3rd January 2021

Castalia was a comfortable smaller home - good value and well equipped. The kitchen and laundry had everything we needed, and the deck was a lovely spot to have dinner or a drink and watch the cows. We even had a koala visit in one of the front trees for a night. The queen and double beds were comfortable (suggest the bunk bed mattresses would not be suitable for a teen or adult). The shower had great water pressure. We enjoyed our stay.
