The place was not clean to the standard expected, especially given current circumstances. Many of the spaces and surfaces were dusty or sticky - there was so much dust under on of the beds which had set off my allergies. Also, the space didn’t particularly smell pleasant either. Other than that, it’s at a great location. Communication and check in with the real estate agent was great. The bored games were a nice addition.
Amazing location and views!
Amazing house to stay at! The views are incredible and loved everything about this home. Will definitely stay again!!
From the moment we arrived we loved it. Lots of bird life that kept us entertained. Truly lovely place for a break.
Lovely house, beautiful location! We had a few lovely visits from the local koala in the surrounding gum trees - amazing!
great beach house for familyolivia stuart - 3rd October 2020
Comfortable family house for 4. Great views from living space and bedrooms. Lovely shaded deck. Bush setting peaceful. Koalas in the village. Well equipped kitchen, bring Aldi pods for coffee machine. Comfortable beds. Sofa bed not comfortable. Spa bath fun with garden views. Fire and heating good when chilly. Thanks for the red wine welcome. Would happily return for the views alone.
Amazing views! The house is exactly as shown in the photos. Ocean views are great. House was very clean and had everything we needed. Probably could have done with a bit more coffee pods as we were there 4 nights but otherwise highly recommend.
Beautiful place in a great location. We had a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The views and nearby beach were enough to keep us occupied - didn’t need anything else.
Beautiful spaciousness apartment The views are beautiful Very relaxing and the fireplace a great touch whilst sipping on a glass of wind and looking at the ocean Highly recommend
The location is great!smit735 - 11th February 2020
The views from both the living room and deck are amazing! The kitchen is well equipped and we were able to enjoy several wonderful meals overlooking the view. There is a beautiful beach a couple of minutes walk down the street. The location is great, between a couple of great little towns and only a couple of hours drive to the 12 Apostles.
Great beach house comfortable and well resourcedkemp - 31st January 2020
We enjoyed our stay at Skenes Creek and would highly recommend it to others. It is a great beach house, it was comfortable and well resourced. There are great views from the balcony and it is an excellent place to have meals and to relax. The beach is an easy stroll away. What's not to like? We went to this place to relax and this we were certainly able to do that.
Relaxing holiday settingKarenM - 21st November 2019
A beautiful place to stay with spectacular views of the ocean while enjoying the cosiness of the indoor wood fire place. The house was clean and spacious and we were so well looked after by the managing agent who went well out of their way to assist us.
Amazing locationNCK1 - 6th November 2019
This place is in an amazing location with wonderful views of the ocean. It ticks all the boxes! A relaxing spa bath while watching the sunset was an added bonus as well as a warm fire for the cold evenings.
Beautiful LocationLeigh - 5th November 2019
A wonderful place for the family to spend a relaxing getaway. The views are amazing! The sound of the ocean, wood fire and spa bath all added to an enjoyable time away.
Beautiful in Winterjse1111 - 24th July 2019

FabulousDiDi - 12th March 2019
Fantastic views Large family and entertainment area with separate bedrooms downstairs Beautiful spa that allows you to relax and unwind Home was clean and well presented Loved listening to the waves roll in at night
Awesome view of the oceanChinWei - 6th December 2018
The house offers a clear view of the ocean that more than offsets any minor discomfort that we felt. It is 5 minute drive away from Apollo Bay where amenities are. Walking distance to the beach is a great boost -- we can get wet and sandy and walk home. There is only 1 aircon on level 2 living room that can stream down the bedrooms on level 1. Each bedroom has a electric cool heater that works very well. It is a good base to explore anything within 2 hours radius, including 12 Apostles, nearby bays and forests. Driving back to the city would take 3 hours about, so avoid ending the trip here and mad rush to the airport -- its tiring. Surely an awesome place to be.
Relaxing, great viewsPhilsam - 30th June 2018
Stayed 6 days in winter. Well-equipped, lots of useful instructions, great woodfire, nice deck, plentiful birdlife, great views - overall very nice stay - would recommend to anyone!
Lovely Homenick - 28th April 2018
Our family loved this home. Well presented, clean and tidy and close to the beach.We will definitely stay at this property again.
DisappointedCelal - 14th April 2018
I am so disappointed at the cleanliness of skenes beach house. We booked this place for our anniversary but regret it so much as the place was covered in cob webs and spiders, it was impossible to sleep on the beds due to spiders and webs under the bed so we had to sleep on the sofa bed with our 2 children. We paid $300 a night and I would've expected it to be well looked after! half our day went on buying Mortein from the shops and then vacuuming the house & the edges of the walls as the entire house was filled with spiders. The views and location of this place was probably the best part of our stay apart from that I don't recommend this place to anyone unless you don't mind sleeping with spiders!
Skenes BeachHoppy - 29th March 2018
Lovely comfortable,modern, clean holiday home. Thank you for the Welcome Wine - a nice touch. The beds were really comfortable and it was great to be able to wash and dry clothes efficiently. Unfortunately the oven wasn't working . The light and fan were on but no heat, which at the time made me a bit cross because I had a casserole ready to bake.
Beautiful stayJonns - 10th February 2018
We spent last weekend at the beautiful skenes beach house and we were more than impressed. Great location with spectacular beach views from the deck and living area. Just a short stroll to the beach which is pristine and peaceful. Accommodation was great with very comfy beds downstairs and everything you could ask for to make our stay very comfortable. Very clean throughout and modern. We will be back and recommend highly
A great place to stayJayRo - 21st July 2017
Have stayed here a few years ago. Was a little worried after reading recent reviews but took a punt. The place was very clean, lots of stuff for fires and a spare gas bottle for the bbq on site. Good outdoor furniture but too cold to use. Plenty of cooking gear to use and nice to have a dishwasher( couldn't find instructions but easy enough to use)Had a great stay, with the wonderful views over the beach and ocean and a welcome bottle of wine. Only problem was baskets for coffee machine missing so could not use it. It would seem the new owner has got most things sorted. Will stay there again.
long weekend stay in JuneSaeed - 12th June 2017
Great place for holiday, beautiful ocean view. house facilities are reasonably good and we had a good time there. couple of simple suggestions: 1- Single bed frames are very noisy and probably low in quality. honestly we were expecting something better. 2- the lower level was full of dead insects (fly, spider etc.). A simple vacuum cleaning could turn into a much better result all in all we spent a great long weekend there.
Beautiful locationred1983 - 14th March 2017
Overall, my husband and I had a lovely stay at this property - the location is superb and the view from the balcony is beautiful, particularly at sunset. It was also very quiet, so we slept amazingly well. However, given the cost to rent the property, we did expect the property to be of a slightly higher quality. First, the house was not particularly clean, especially in the bathrooms. Second, the BBQ gas bottle was left empty and the instructions for changing it over were incorrect which meant we had to attend three different locations to have it changed. Third, the table outside on the balcony was badly broken which meant we could not have dinner outside. Fourth, there were no instructions in relation to the use of kitchen appliances (e.g. stove, oven, dishwasher) so we spent some time trying to work these things out before we could start cooking. Finally, there were no instructions regarding return of keys etc. It also would have been a nice touch to receive a welcome letter (and even a bottle of wine / chocolates), with some tips for shops/dining out/walks/beaches. We enjoyed but we wouldn't hurry back.
Stunning locationJohnSpeakman - 8th February 2016
Lovely house with a superb view at the coast, well appointed. We only missed sun loungers on the deck.
