The location is great!smit735
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
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
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.
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.
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
Have stayed here in Summer and now Winter. Great both times.
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
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
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!
Our family loved this home. Well presented, clean and tidy and close to the beach.We will definitely stay at this property again.
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!
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.
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
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
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.
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.
Lovely house with a superb view at the coast, well appointed. We only missed sun loungers on the deck.
