Filthy, disgusting! Mold, dust, cobwebs on me as i initially walked in through every hall way and door entrance, bugs everywhere... dirty carpets. Dodgy outdoor deck. Broken couches, most uncomfy beds. Place is not maintained at all for an Airbnb, out of large group only a couple of us stayed the whole 3 nights, most left due to the filth.

We really enjoyed our stay here, in fact we would have liked to stay longer! Our only complaint is that the bbq was filthy. We tried to clean it but just ended up getting some bbq mats to put over the hot plates to cook on. Also the Gas bottle was completely empty. Overall though we loved our experience at lochys rest & will certainly be back again.

Hi Jeff, We are glad to know that you enjoyed your stay. That is the goal. It has been a pleasure hosting you.

Good location..average house.

Sinead G - 29th April 2022

We love the location, easily accessible walks to beach and into Apollo bay township. The house itself needs some maintenance..door knobs falling off, lights not working outside. The house is also freezing in the bedrooms, they did provide one small oil heater, but the 3 rooms that didn’t have heaters were icy. The house is also very dark, even with curtains opened..the lights are just so dim. Also would of been nice for some matches to be left for the stove top.

It supposed to be 5 bedrooms but it was 4

It supposed to be 5 bedrooms but it was actually 4 ! The house smelled really bad ! Washing machine and dryer didn’t work properly.since the weather is cold now there wasn’t much blankets in the house , so overall I don’t recommend it tbh :/

Great Place for a family holiday

John P - 15th July 2021

Had a great time at Lochy's Rest, a couple of minor things: we couldn't find a can opener in the kitchen drawers, the firewood was a bit damp (dry red gum is best). Other than that it was most enjoyable, in what is a lovely part of the world.

Peaceful place

We love this beautiful spot. Every year it gets better, thanks.

Fabulous Family House

Sally - 1st February 2019

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was extremely well set up to accommodate two families, and the two living spaces provided entertainment for all. Excellent location with easy access to the beach. Loved the feeding platform for the native birds.

Great location

Margaret - 6th January 2019

Alll our family loved the house & it’s location & beach

Large house in lovely location

Susie - 19th April 2017

We had a lovely stay in the house over Easter with another family. The children had such fun in one lounge room while the adults could chat away in the other. The kitchen is large and very well appointed with all the basics needed to cook a hearty meal. The balcony welcomes King Parrots which are a delight to watch. The beds are all comfy although the two couches in the downstairs lounge room are pretty saggy. The garage downstairs was great to park in, shut the roller door and keep little kids safe. There is even an air hockey table and table tennis in there. We were appreciative that the empty gas bottle was changed in a matter of hours (on Easter Sunday!) and that we were able to have late checkout. This was our third stay and we hope to have a forth in the future.
