Wonderful stay

John H - 26th June 2021

We had a wonderful stay. The house was perfect; great views, a short walk to the general store and pub, clean, modern appliances that work and a log fire (inc. wood) to die for. Couldn’t have asked for a better property.

Ocean Views

Nathan L - 1st June 2021

Ocean Magic is all that. It’s been a while since I’ve been to Wye river and to have that beautiful decking area overlooking the ocean was all but worth it. Fire was on all week and just magical. 2min walk to gen store was awesome. Kids loved it although lockdown 4.0 made us depart early. We will definitely be back

Maria Brosnan - 25th May 2021

Amazing property with a view to die for. Really well equipped house, and with a massive sunny (dog friendly!) deck. Short walk to the beach, general store and pub. Had a fantastic week and look forward to the next stay. The only negative was a miscommunication about check out time,but that’s just human error. Will be back...

Hana Cherry - 25th May 2021

The most beautiful views and a very clean presentable home.

Amazing Views!

John R - 18th May 2021

What a wonderful place to stay! What amazing views! We have really enjoyed our time here - it's been so relaxing. We've appreciated the wood fire on these cold nights - thank you for the generous supply of firewood. Everything is so well set up and so clean - it is an absolute delight to stay here! We'll be back!

Linda Cuttriss - 14th May 2021

Ocean Magic certainly lived up to its name. A brilliant location and stunning views over the beach and ocean. The wood fire kept us warm and cosy. Furniture was really comfy and kitchen had everything we needed. Certainly recommend Ocean Magic. We’ll definitely be back.

Fantastic House in a Great Location

Paul G - 30th November 2020

Ocean Magic is exactly that "Magic". It is in a great location within a short walk to the general store, hotel & beach. The house is well equipped for self catering and is suitable for a quiet get away for a couple or family and friends groups of up 6 people. Dealing with Great Ocean Road Real Estate was very easy from the time we booked until we left. We would definitely stay here again.

Josh Van Cuylenburg - 26th November 2020

Perfect Beach House

Vanessa - 4th October 2019

Ocean Magic was the perfect beach house for a family holiday - fur babies were welcome, the beach and pub were a short walk even for little legs, and the view was spectacular


Brijesh - 5th September 2019

'It was such a pleasant & relaxing stay. House location is absolutely stunning ! As we have a lil one & a fur baby we were looking for a home away from a home for our outing. This house came out as a perfect package for us. Everyone enjoyed their own bit beautifully! We were lucky enough to enjoy at the beach as the weather was just perfect . Couldn't ask for any other better way for enjoying our holidays. Would definitely love to come back again !'

What a View!

James - 22nd July 2019

'What a view! Hard to leave the house with the fire place roaring and ceiling to floor ocean views. Great house with renovated kitchen and bathroom and only 3 mins from the General store, pub and beach.

Great decision!

What a fantastic property this is. The views are stunning overlooking Wye Beach. It's a short stroll to the pub and local general store/cafe. The property is fully stocked with everything you could think of. This one ticked all the boxes!

Ticked all the boxes!

TomA - 12th June 2019

Lovely view, and a cracking good firebox to keep the place toasty warm. Kitchen is well stocked with plenty of cooking utensils. An easy stroll to a vibrant and fun cafe near the sea. Ticked all the boxes for our winter weekend getaway


Jaime - 3rd June 2019

Amazing spot! Cant beat a fire on a cold winter night!

So relaxing

Santina - 15th April 2019

It was an amazing home to spend a long weekend to just relax and take in the views

A gorgeous place to stay!

Theresa - 17th March 2019

From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. The view was awesome. The house was well equipped from the kitchen to the extra blankets and the cleaning equipment. Hearing and seeing the birdlife, the crashing sound of the waves was incredible. I could not stop staring out the window, even on a rainy day we were happy to just relax and chill in this beautiful home. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Fab location

Trini - 7th February 2019

A beautiful comfortable property with a great view and a fabulous location

Believe in the magic

Mario - 1st February 2019

From the moment you make your way up the long treelined driveway to Ocean Magic, you know youre heading to something special. This house is perfect! The view is truly magical. To one side you feel like youre sitting within a famous bush painting with tall native trees and colourful Australian birds and then to the other you have beautiful ocean views. At night you feel like you could almost touch the stars. This truly is a place where the bush meets the beach and magic happens.Great Ocean Road Real Estate were wonderful to deal with from the start. So friendly and always happy to help. The owners of the property also made us feel very welcome with a lovely card, a welcome bottle of wine and lots of consideration for what a comfortable visit might need. The living area and kitchen were comfortable, modern and had everything you could think of. And, that beautiful seating area near the window, that was most definitely our favourite spot to sit and completely relax any time we had a chance. Our kids loved using the telescope to assess the waves, how many kids were on the beach and watch birds and other things going on around us. The house is a short 3-minute walk from the caf/store and local pub which are all sensational. We loved being able to lunch at the caf while the kids played in the playground and then regularly stepped up from the beach to the pub for a drink, gelati or meal. No matter where you turn, everyone in Wye River is super friendly it feels like a world of its own. We loved this visit and have rated it as one of our family favourites. Thank you Ocean Magic for sprinkling your magic on our family summer holiday!

Perfect summer holiday

Nat - 13th January 2019

We loved our summer holiday at Ocean Magic. Beautiful view, great location, perfect place for our little family.

Perfect spot

Priceless View!

Toneeya - 2nd November 2018

This well designed and spacious house is the perfect beach meets bush getaway. It has a priceless view of the ocean and lots of outdoor space to relax & entertain on. The hosts left a clean and well stocked house with everything from a fire place to a dvd collection to keep us entertained when we were at the beach. Will defined stay there again when next in the area!

Wonderful View

Dusty - 5th October 2018

Great property. Fantastic location, great facilities and a wonderful view.

Wonderful property

Dustin - 4th October 2018

We had a wonderful time during our one week stay at Ocean Magic over the school holidays. The house is in a great location close to the general store, beach and hotel. It is beautifully furnished and is very comfortable. The other highlight is the magnificent oven view. We won’t hesitate to book again if we are heading back to Wye River.


Andrea - 4th June 2018

Ocean Magic is a great place to stay. Clean, comfortable and well appointed with a great deck out front to take in the fantastic view. The bathroom is luxurious with a huge rainhead shower. Would definitely stay again. The staff at Great Ocean Road Real Estate were amazingly friendly and helpful. Thanks Andrea.

Lovely Views

Emily - 18th March 2018

The house itself and the location were fantastic. The Sulfur crested cockatoos we’re welcome guests. However there were a few minor issues with how the property was managed. There was limited toilet paper and no dish washing liquid. Laundry had to be ordered extra and what we received didn’t match what we had asked for. Also we were informed after we had returned the keys that we could have a later check out time free of charge which would have been nice to know earlier since we rushed to get out of there by 10am.

Enjoy the Serenity

Amiee - 10th March 2017

Best ocean view. Stayed in for 5 nights and happily cooked in a modern kitchen and absorbed the serenity while we dined. Slept to the of the sounds of the waves. Bathroom is also a delight. Will return.

Great holiday

peterc - 15th December 2015

We stayed at the end of Nov 2015 and this was our 3rd return visit to this property. It has a fantastic deck that gives brilliant views straight down onto the Wye Beach. It is also perfect as it is such a short walk from the house down to the water. Location wise it is one of Wye Rivers best. Will be back.
