The owners have created luxurious cottages at Cape Otway that are great for friends or lovers to use. It is the little touches that make the most impact - fresh coffee beans and a grinder, well-equipped kitchen, the fireplace that looks real but is eco-friendly. The cottages are close to the delights of Cape Otway National Park and, yes, koalas... More

My wife and I stayed at Shearwater Cottages with friends after the lighthouse accomodation down the road messed up our booking. We arrived in the middle of the night during a storm and Julie was fantastic in helping us out and offering us a place to stay at such short notice.

We had a lovely break at Shearwater Cottages over the Easter and ANZAC break. Our cottage was secluded and exceptionally quiet, very clean and ample utensils in the kitchen to make life easy. Wish that the cottage was closer to the sea itself, but it was still great. Our best friend had a great break too, enjoying the outdoors and... More
