Welcome to Cooinda!
Cooinda is on 10 acres of steep terrain at the edge of the Otways rain forest, perched high in the hills with views through to the ocean. Wild Dog Creek meanders down the gully spilling into the sea at Pirates Cove.
The house is on mains power (green energy), instantaneous gas hot water and tank rain water supply. The water is safe to drink and delicious! It is circulated through the property by pump which simply needs to be switched on at arrival and off at departure.
The main living area of the house is open-plan with windowed-doors that open up completely onto the massive entertainment deck with 2 BBQs, open-fire place (BYO wood) & sheltered seating. Additional stools are available along the outside breakfast bar with views in all directions of the picturesque Otways & blue ocean scape.
The kitchen is fully equipped with large fridge/freezer, gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, 4 stools & 6-seater table & chairs. The living space has ample seating with 2-seater couch & 2 lounge chairs, nestled around the large Conara wood fire (BYO wood). Games, books, movies, TV with DVD player for movies as there is no TV reception, and a pool table are all at your fingertips to entertain on those indoor days.
Featuring 2 bedrooms: Master with Queen bed, ensuite bathroom with shower, toilet & vanity (with rear door access), and a 2nd bedroom with a double bed. The main bathroom has shower, toilet & vanity. Laundry facility is available on the rear deck of the house.
The property offers absolute seclusion with no other encroaching property. The vista is so relaxing and offers rural, forest & ocean views in 180 degrees of the large outdoor deck, that is elevated above the undulating property.
This semi-rural getaway will create very special holiday memories, with brilliant, star-gazing nights, warm sunny Otway breezes & the lull of rolling waves.
Only 10 minutes to Apollo Bay township with a selection of retail shops, cafes, restaurants & entertainment.

Peace and SolitudeRebecca Matthews KLB - 19th December 2021
We had a wonderfully relaxing week at Cooinda. It's a great location just out of town and 2.5km walk to the beach. The decking is wonderful, with stunning views across the valley and the ocean. We parked ourselves with a pile of books and a wine, and barely left. With virtually no internet, we were able to detox off our phones and computers. Even the teenagers didn't complain. If you want lush surroundings and be woken by a cacophony of birds (and the odd grunting koala) this is the place.
Terrific house to stay in. Beautiful surrounds and a great place to just relax.
Great home, terrific locationJenny McMahon - 19th April 2021
Well equipped, very comfortable and clean home to stay in. Everything needed is there, including koalas outside the door. We had a very restful, relaxing stay. My only comment was that the wood fire doesn’t seal well and so was very smoky. This needs to be fixed quickly. Other than that it was delightful house to stay in.
This place is absolutely beautiful! The stunning garden that surrounds the house is full of beautiful birds and koalas. Such a relaxing place to stay and very close to Apollo bay. Can't wait to come back!
The property and surrounding area is beautiful. Perfect place to relax. The house is smaller than we expected, and while it has a fold out couch, is really probably best suited to 1 family, not 2 as the sofa bed is in the middle of the open plan kitchen / living area.
Great place to get a away from it all
Beautiful and quiet location. Would reccommend :)
Such a wonderful location with an array of birds on the property - and lots of koalas! A very peaceful stay.
The view from the deck was amazing, very tranquil and relaxing. Loved the outdoor fireplace and lots of wildlife around to enjoy.
