Lovely, big, bright house with both sea and river/mountain views.

Ursula | 5th January 2022

Lovely, big, bright house with both sea and river/mountain views. Close to both Lorne and Apollo Bay for adventuring but also lots to do if you just want a staycation, relaxing around the property. Master bed was big and comfortable with clean and luxe linen supplied. Lots of thoughtful additions in terms or kitchen and bathroom amenities. Fireplace makes a romantic addition. Prompt communication during the stay. Tip - try the nearby Wye River Cafe and Pub - both were excellent.

The perfect mix of mountains and beach!

Elle | 5th January 2022

The perfect mix of mountains and beach! With the river on one side and the sea out the other it's an incredible location to just relax! We found it mostly family friendly(lots of stairs , we just had to watch our little ones closely) The spa and shed provided hours of entertainment for us all! A short drive either way for sight seeing and walks but if you're looking to just stay in it's perfect for that too! We will be back
