Million dollar views for budget conscious

Dora B - 1st November 2022

Terrific place with sensational views from the generously sized verandah. Definitely for the budget conscious, this well equipped home was close to the beach and very peaceful. Great spot to explore the Otways from or simply spend lazy days in the beach.

Not pet friendly continued...

Stephen G - 28th April 2021

Further to previous review please note that the dog kennel is dilapidated and dirty, and the front fence is insecure and would easily be knocked over by a larger dog. Need to place on the FRONT PAGE that dogs are not allowed inside as it is currently very misleading. Had we known we wouldn'thave booked. Quite frankly no worries with having a small or house trained dog inside either.

Not pet friendly!

Stephen G - 28th April 2021

House fine & spotless, but very basic - no towels, linen, bathmat, soap or box of tissues! So unless extended stay would not recommend. Definitely NOT "Pet friendly" as stated on booking page ...mentions it has "large fenced yard where your family/pet will enjoy the outdoors" BUT NO MENTION that your little doggie can't go inside the house (that comes in the conditions AFTER paying!) Cost of $250.00 pn (SHols) not worth it. Also many instructional text messages from GOR makes one feel childish!

Very nice place to stay

Johanna Pihkanen office KLB - 1st February 2021

Great location to explore the area, great family house with big backyard. Really well equipped kitchen too!

Great location close to town

Willow11 - 16th January 2020

We love staying here, as its close to Apollo bay just 5 minutes drive to the town centre. The house isnt brand new but its very comfortable to stay. My kids and I thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Its a great house to bring your pet!

Beautiful quiet position

Jason - 6th November 2019

Perfect space for 2 adults + 2 kids Very easy stroll down to the beach and lovely position amongst the trees and native birds Plenty of crockerie and the new weber bbq made dinner simple The owner must also love their garden !
