A stunning home with incredible views. Very clean and beds were comfy. Really special.
Beautiful views from every room!
An incredible stay at Iluka, with the host thinking of everything to ensure an enjoyable stay.
Review from Russell via AirBnb January 2022: Amazing place - we've been twice now, and we will return!
Review from Annabel via Airbnb November 2021: This is a pretty special house that is well set up with everything you could need. It has an amazing ocean view, and we really enjoyed watching the sun rise over the water.
Wow what a view been looking for a place like this for a long time so close to the beach. Everything was amazing the house location was nice and quiet.
Furniture was comfy. I couldn’t be happier with my stay.
I will definitely be back.
Great host and communication
Great place and value
Great set up if you have little kids - they had a high chair, cot, baby gate, cubby house and toy/play room! Big kids would enjoy the fooze ball table, ping pong and air hockey! Great safe yard for pets too. Easy walking distance to town. It’s got everything you need.
Beach Gum was an amazing accomodation. It was very clean and was a great space for our family. The walk to the beach was only 5 mins and we were lucky enough to see a 2 Koalas on the way. We walked to the town for coffee and dinner each day. We did not bring our dog this time but next time we will bring her as the yard was secure and large enough for her. A truely relaxing and homely stay. Highly recommend for individual families or maybe 2 families wanting to spend time together.
Amazing house, with incredible views of the ocean. The surrounding forest and gardens on the property are stunning. There’s a pond with a family of resident wood ducks, a flock of 20+ sheep and lambs roaming the property and occasionally right past the bedroom window! We saw a couple of koalas, kangaroos, superb fairy wrens, parrots a very friendly magpie, eastern yellow robin and more. The mountain hike at the back of property is a bit of challenge 😅 but worth it for panoramic views over Apollo Bay, great for photos and watching the sunset. Staying at this property was one of the best things I’ve ever done and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing time away.
Iluka Blue was simply stunning. The views were amazing and from almost every room. Great place to escape reality and unwind with the family. The house was much bigger then we expected and positioned quite high up, hence the brilliant 180 degree ocean views. We saw a kangaroo 🦘 in the yard too! 😃 Couldn’t fault this property! Bonus, quiet beach and friendly locals 🤗🌊☀️ Thanks for having us. Téa
Beautiful location with stunning views. Loved all the wildlife that surrounded it. Thanks for a great stay 🙂
If you’re after an escape to truly recharge your batteries, this is the place. Stunning property with breathtaking views. Surrounded by the 4 elements, fire, water, earth and air. Just the perfect place to escape. The house was clean and tidy. Great communication with the managing agent. Highly recommend and definitely looking forward to coming back!
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! 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
Beautiful property with the most amazing views. Great for rain, wind or sun. Everything you need. Would definitely return.

Great house, convenient and clean. My wife and I had an enjoyable weekend.
The owners have done a great job with this house. Everything is provided & the house has a lovely ambience. Please tell the owners what a great job they have done. We would love to come back. (Stayed at Inis Mor in Apollo Bay)
We arrived and were immediately impressed by pretty much everything. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully and tastefully appointed and meticulously maintained. We loved the colour scheme and artwork. The beds we perfect, the kitchen was perfect, everything was perfect. We didn't want to leave!
We really enjoyed our stay here from the great views of the ocean to the quite location not too far from shops and amenities + the added bonus of being next to an iconic Great Ocean walk this place was very easy to relax from the moment we arrived, we wished we could have stayed for a longer period.
This is a beautiful property with amazing views. It is so quiet and peaceful, you forget you are very close to shops and restaurants in Apollo Bay. The only downside was the wood heater wasn't stocked and only a couple of pieces of wood in the basket. Fortunately, the heating worked very well. Will definitely come back and stay longer next time. Thank you. Carmen, Central Goldfields.
