Great location, amazing viewsMilosh Milisavljevic - 11th September 2022
Really great house for the family. So close to all the Lorne city restaurants and shops, and such a fantastic view from the house.
Lovely place in an amazing locationJannet Davies - 22nd April 2022
Great location with amazing view. Cosy house that has everything you need. Open fireplace and pet friendly- what more could you ask for?
Doggy HeavenSophie Bates - 17th December 2021
What a lovely cottage. We really appreciated the kitchen having everything you need, especially great knives. The outdoor shower was brilliant for the dogs. Have booked for next year.
Another comfortable staySonja Johnson - 11th December 2021
Our fifth stay at this property, it has such a good vibe.
Cute Cottage so close to the beachMichelle Stanic - 5th December 2021
We had a lovely time at Valletta, so close to everything with a fully equipped kitchen and cosy house, with a beautiful garden. Thanks again Kacey, Liz and the team at Great Ocean Road Holidays, they always make the process so easy.
A great escapeJay Macnish - 28th May 2021
This was the second time this year staying at the beautiful old cottage. Fantastic location and a great view. I want to say a big thank you to the owners for installing reverse cycle aircon. It kept the place toasty and warm. Look forward to coming back again.
Beautiful viewsLauren Capicchiano - 25th May 2021
The views far better than the photos show. We were blessed with gorgeous weather (in late May!) and spent a lot of time on the verandah relaxing while the kids and dog played in the great size garden. If you have a little dog like ours there are escape spots which we blocked up with the fire wood - front fence and driveway fence. One of the swings out the front looked a bit too thread bear. The cottage is totally charming, comfy and well equipped. We'd definitely stay again.
Practically perfect in every wayMelanie Regan - 18th April 2021
Beautiful old home, great location, gorgeous garden setting. One of our favourites.
Lovely outdoorsChloe Martin - 23rd November 2020
Thank you for our stay at this property. The house was great, the garden lovely & perfect for our weekend away. Just a note about the gas heater in the living area, my husband is a gas plumber and said that this heater would absolutely be leaking carbon monoxide and needs to be disconnected right away as it is a serious risk. This type of heater is illegal now days. Also, the house is due for a good spring clean. The walls, in the corners, on shelves & under chairs/beds was exceptionally dirty.
We had a lovely stay at the beach house with our little dog. It's a block away from cafes and the beach. Lovely and cosy with great views.
Couldn't be happier!Rosalind - 22nd March 2020
We had such a lovely stay, full of character and great for the family including the four legged one!
A very comfortable staySonja - 22nd September 2019

Terrific HomeChris - 17th September 2019
'This is a terrific home with views, and very well located only a few minutes walk to the main street in Lorne
We loved our stay!Anthony - 19th July 2019
A big thanks to the owners of Valletta... Great position in Lorne, great views of Aireys lighthouse from the deck... close to all you need. Also, thanks for providing a place to have pets, so convenient in Lorne, our guy loved the yard to roam around and spending time on the deck in the sun. Great open fire and split wood provided - quite handy on the cooler nights. Many thanks again, we loved our stay....
Excellent Location!Alison - 21st April 2019
Excellent location- close to everything. Everyone felt comfortable and at home. Will definitely be back!
Well keep and comfortable holiday homeStephen - 26th February 2019
This holiday home is located within walking distance to Lorne's central shopping strip and main beach. It was so nice to leave the car in the driveway for a few days. The house is complemented by a beautiful garden settings (both front and backyard) and well equipped with a range of outside seats and sun umbrellas. We had a very relaxing stay and would highly recommend this property
The best location!!!Bridey - 17th December 2018
The location is absolutely perfect! Not only is Lorne a great destination but the house was better than I could have hoped for and suited our needs to a tee. The weather sat in the mid twenties during our stay and we felt very comfortable for my family and our two dogs. Did I mention the garden? Wow. It even came with stunning views of the beach. The Great Ocean Road Real Estate team were just wonderful and were so lovely to deal with that I wouldn't hesitate booking with them again. Thank you for a great holiday.
perfect for a family seaside stayAmanda - 21st November 2018
We had a fantastic stay and really appreciated all the thoughtful touches that made everything easy to find and enjoy. Our 15 month old had an absolute ball, this is a holiday home that is as lovely to spend time in along with the beautiful Lorne beaches, cafes and parks. So comfy for grown ups, kids and pets.The Great Ocean Road Real Estate team were also really lovely too and very helpful. Thank you and we would
Great location, great viewsSonja - 5th November 2018
This is our second stay at Valetta and it didn’t disappoint. The house is well appointed and has everything for a comfortable stay. The views are great and there’s always a sunny spot to be found around the garden.
Great Location and ViewsDozersHumans - 11th June 2018
The Good .. It's Old, quaint and comfortable. A true beach house experience. Great location, awesome views from the large decks, walking distance to all Lorne has to offer. The dog loved the big secure yard and open fire. Kitchen very well equipped with all you need for an extended stay. The Bad,, It's Old,Has all the quirks of an old property. Difficult to heat, bathroom could be updated, has shower over bath with a curtain. We stayed 15 nights, 2 humans and a dog all had a great time and would be happy to return.
Right in the heart of town!NathanIman - 13th June 2017
We loved the classic feeling of this gorgeous Victorian home. The land is huge, so there was plenty of room for our dogs to run around (and plenty of room for those that have kids too I imagine). The home was clean, inviting and we LOVED the open fire, it was so gorgeous on a cold winters night. Great kitchen with everything you need. The location is incredibly central, you can literally walk everywhere. We particularly liked the views and the big balcony to relax on. Awesome house.
Relax on the verandahRosie - 10th March 2017
Valetta is a Victorian-era house situated in Lorne, one street back from the main street. It's been very attractively renovated, is light and airy but done without spoiling many of the original features. The two bedrooms still appear to be original and the main bedroom has a very comfortable Queen sized bed.The second bedroom is meant for children but is ok for adults, with 2 bunk beds and a single bed. There is a bungalow at the back with its own bathroom and a sofa bed. The living area is very comfortable with a long sofa, TV and DVD etc. If you sit at the end of the sofa, you can look out at the view of the sea, which is also available from the veranda. There are several outdoor areas to sit, and a pleasant garden - great for the dog to run around in. The kitchen was well-supplied - good chopping knives, dishwasher etc. The bathroom is quite basic but attractive enough. Our favourite activity at the house was sitting and relaxing on the veranda looking out at the view of the ocean, beautiful even at night.
