Breathtaking Views and Prime Location

Haohui C - 27th September 2023

Our stay was thoroughly enjoyable. The hotel provides all the essential amenities, including a coffee machine and barbecue facility, which added a homely touch to our experience. The location is simply perfect, nestled just a 5-minute stroll away from a serene, uncrowded beach. We highly recommend this house for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle, and cherish some quiet moments by the beach.

Treetops Resort

Daniela R - 12th April 2023

Treetops was a lovely place to stay however they did not provide the basic items that one should receive. An email was sent to Great Ocean Road Holidays but NO response received. NO tea towels in kitchen, NO body wash, NO shampoo, NO additional blankets. Oil, salt & pepper were ALL EXPIRED.

Hi Daniela, thank you for your review. We sincerely apologise for your negative experience. You should have received a welcome starter pack to make your stay more comfortable such as soap, tea/coffee, detergent, tea towel etc. This was unacceptable service on our part and we understand your disappointment. We will take the necessary action to avoid this from happening again. Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention.

Fantastic on all counts

We went to celebrate my birthday, somewhere quiet, near the ocean and cosy on an evening, this accommodation ticked all the boxes. More amenities than described which was a lovely surprise, location is amazing. We have a young family (3.5 yr old twins and an 10 year old) and they all loved exploring the house. Such a lovely, warm and inviting house. One minor issue whilst there but was dealt with straight away and communication was brilliant. Highly recommend

Just wonderful

Colin W - 9th February 2022

A perfect place to relax and chill out. Settled wonderfully in the Forrest with our resident Kaolas. Wow, that was the ultimate highlight. Beautiful seafood at the Apollo Bay harbour, great restaurants and cafes, visit to Forrest brewery for lunch, Wildlfe wondersis a must, and of course the unmissable helicopter visit to the 12 Apostles. Much,

Never disappoints

Sue-Ann S - 28th January 2022

This is our 2nd visit to this property and it won’t be our last. It is a perfect location in amongst the tree canopy (we had koalas and cockatoo’s in the trees) and within walking distance to the beach and amazing views. The house is fully equipped with everything you need for a holiday. We highly recommend.

Jasmin Eaton - 24th May 2021

We had a wonderful 3 nights at the property. The house was clean and had everything you could possibly need to have a comfortable stay. We can’t wait to come back to this lovely property, we felt right at home. The check in process was easy and the communication with the hosts was impeccable.

Alannah O'Sullivan - 19th May 2021

A lovely place to relax and unwind. Beautiful views, a fire that kept us toasty and warm while listening to the sea roar. Great getaway spot! Would love to stay again.

Lisa Idris - 22nd April 2021

All the comforts of home in a scenic, peaceful locale close to Apollo Bay. Clean, tidy and thoughtfully stocked with books and games to keep children (and adults!) occupied. Remember to BYO toiletries and pantry items - hosts have made clear that these are not provided in the description of the property. Lots of wildlife to be spotted from the balcony - keep your eyes peeled for koalas sleeping in the gumtrees!

Jessica Watkins - 8th March 2021

A beautiful location and the house has the potential to be amazing. There was a very obvious smell of mould in one of the bedrooms and bathrooms. Dirty dishes were left in the cupboard. Old food scraps were left on the dining chairs. 6 guests were booked in but only 4 towels were provided. Also please not there is absolutely no essentials provided for. There was hard sugar, 4 coffee sticks (it’s also advertised at having a coffee machine but you have to bring your own pods and if you don’t bring your own be prepared to pay $$$ for them at the local IGA) and a few old tea bags, no salt, no gladwrap or foil, a tablespoon of oil. And you must bring your own stuff for the fireplace. Check in was at 3pm and I received a text message at 3:05 with a link to a website about the accommodation but it seemed to be just a general information. Some of which had nothing to do with our accommodation. Things like find the heater remote located....(blank). You possibly need to provided your own firewood.(would have been helpful to know before check in). Please remember to supervise children around the pool (but there was no pool).

Louise Koschmann - 24th February 2021

A very comfortable, relaxing stay that met our expectations and will have us returning soon.

Danielle Cairns - 16th February 2021

Amazingly beautiful! Super clean, private, relaxing and located close enough to town but fat enough away!

Wonderful location. Great amenities. Thoughtful touches. Regular visits by a range of birds. Great stay all round.

Great accomodation and tidy

David Fotheringham - 12 noon checkout - 23rd November 2020

Great views and quiet location, very relaxing and perfect for a family of four

Britt Mckendry - 12noon check-in - 27th October 2020

Amazing views, amazing place and great price. We had a lovely family holiday away. Close to town & only a short walk from the beach. House was very clean & the beds were super comfy!

Best place to stay on Ocean Rd

Susie D - 5th October 2020

We absolutely love Skenes Creek and this area of the Treetops apartments. It has stunning views, not to far to the beach and very tranquil sitting on the deck enjoying the birds and sounds of the sea. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay!

A home away from home!

Giovanna - 22nd January 2020

Our family of 4 felt immediately at home in this luxurious beach accommodation. We loved the ocean views from the balcony and were instantly welcomed by the cockatoos. We also loved the fact that our daughters had their own bathroom and we had a very comfortable ensuite with a spa bath. The WiFi was an added bonus for us all but in particular for my husband who was able to squeeze in a bit of work at the same time. The beds were comfortable and fitted with quality linen, modern and very well presented. We loved the fact we didn't need to take linen or towels at all, one less thing to worry about when on holiday! The open plan kitchen and lounge area was very comfortable with great views and even though we could see the ocean from there, we couldn't hear it! We didn't have the best beach weather during our one week stay, but the location was perfect with only a short walk to the beach. The town centre of Apollo Bay was easily accessible with only a short drive away. It is by far one of the most comfortable holiday houses we have ever stayed in and we look forward to staying there again.

Perfect location

SueS - 30th September 2018

We were very impressed with the accommodation. It was the perfect size for a family of 4 and in an outstanding location with views to the ocean and a quick 5 minute walk to Skenes Creek beach. The house had everything we needs for our 1 week stay and we’re looking forward to booking it again next year.
