Fantastic accomodation

Jennifer M - 3rd January 2024

We stayed 7 days in this accomodation and did not want to leave. The views are spectacular, the bedding very comfortable, it is clean and neat and has all that you need. The owners and neighbours are lovely. We would definitely return.

The Perfect Little Place

Liz B - 31st March 2022

A perfect little hideaway, nearly didn’t want to leave the view from the bedroom.

A little disappointed

Gavin E - 13th February 2022

The property itself was pretty good - clean, good size, and as the pictures show, an absolutely stunning view. However….. For $300 a night, we would expect the property to provide tea & coffee (not the congealed instant rubbish stuck in the jar), tissues, & toiletries like you see in a $100 a night motel room. Nothing, empty hand wash and cheap toilet paper. Property needs updating - cassette player can go, along with the 2016 ‘coffee table’ mags. Location 4km to Lorne, so needed to drive.

A quiet getaway

Ro M - 1st December 2021

Beautiful coastal view from the balcony. Very relaxing place to stay at. Easy access central Lorne.

Dennis Manz - 30th November 2020

excellent location, comfortable and reasonably clean, we would return next time we come to Lorne

Delightful Place

Dennis M - 30th November 2020

Disabled access and lovely outlook this apartment suited us perfectly well. Two disappointments: No plugs for either the bathroom basin or the kitchen sink made washing tricky And the glasses, crockery and cutlery were all dirty: where were the contract cleaners?? A good spring clean would help: but we would book again. Plenty of bedding and towels and great location. Dennis

Donna Williams - 28th November 2020

Loved our stay, the view, the walks nearby, and the friendly king parrot. It was nice to be away from Lorne town but within walking distance along the beach. The apartment was spacious and clean.

Fantastic views of the ocean. You can hear the waves crashing into the rocks. Good amenities and a short drive to the town.

Great location/outlook, lots of nice homey touches (and a very steep hill ...)

Anonymous - 6th July 2020

The photo of the balcony was a bit misleading. It wasn’t specified that other guests would be sharing the building/ driveway and balcony (could hear loud footsteps and voices overhead). The balcony was in the shared entrance and not that appealing to sit in. Small things such as watered down dishwashing liquid, cheap oil, low quality toilet paper made us feel as if the priority was to save money rather than create a nice experience. Small touches such as better quality cooking oil make a big difference. As well as this, several things weren’t working such as one of the lamps in the bedroom, the light and fan above the stove, and the dishwasher. Another minor detail was an outdated CD/tape player that majority of guests probably wouldn’t use. Would be nice to have speakers (even cheap Bluetooth) as an additional touch. Basically the place was lacking a little love and a few caring touches would rectify this. We loved the view from the bedroom and the location was wonderful which still made our stay pleasant :)

Beautiful view

Weve stayed here six or seven times for a week each time. Weve found the property to very well equipped and comfortable. When we arrive there now it feels a little like a homecoming and I quickly go into relax mode.There are great views and its in walking to the beach, coming back is a different story, the hill is too much for me to tackle. We will happily stay at this property again.


Michael - 24th February 2020

Lovely peaceful location and amazing views. Everything you need for a short break.

Good for a weekend

Sheila - 13th February 2020

A nice unit with good view of the beach and nice walk along the beach into town - although the walk back up the steep hill to unit could be a challenge for some. Good for a weekend rather than a longer stay. Unit needs better checking prior to new occupants - we found dirty cutlery and saucepans - the dishwasher had lots of debris and we had to clean it out. Also a saucepan handle was broken which we were able to repair. It would be great if the lounge room furniture could be reconfigured so when seated on the lounge you had a view of the sea. View from bedroom spectacular and loved sitting in window area looking out.

Beautiful View

Sophia - 7th February 2019

We had a nice and enjoyable time in Lorne, thanks for the hospitality, nice location and beautiful view, would recommend.

Great vista

Mark - 25th January 2019

Great views and located just outside of lorne. You will need a car to reach the main town. The apartment is a short walk to the beach, but a steep incline to walk back, so not suitable for older or people who have trouble with mobility. The accommodation has good services but needs a freshen up with regards bed linens.

Rip off

Tara - 19th February 2018

Dusty Sticky floor No soap/ shampoo in shower noisy upstairs

Vista Di Mare- I'm in!

Dave - 6th December 2017

The accommodation I experienced at 11 Summerhills was more than adequate. It is lovely and quiet the unit is well equipped and the morning view from my pillow was lovely. The fold out bed is adequate although the plastic cover should be replaced with a calico cover at least very noisy and slippery. all in all great! The pizza pizza is as good as it gets lovely coffee every where in town. I will be back and if the Vista Di Mare is available Im in.

Amazing views

Annette - 8th September 2016

We stayed here a couple of weekends ago. It was in a great location and had amazing views. We loved the rainbows which greeted us when we arrived and throughout the weekend. It was very easy to deal with the people at great ocean road real estate. We will be booking another holiday soon.

Beautiful sea views
