This is a rustic property and a slightly eccentric (in the nice way) landlady. A warm welcome, good tourist advice and great breakfast. Try to be there on a moonless clear sky night and look at all the stars - there is very little light pollution from towns - they are many miles away. So quiet at night! Great location... More

The 12 Apostles Secret Spot is just off the Great Ocean Road near the famous 12 Apostles beach. It is inland a mile and on farmland with great open vistas. Robyn is an eclectic artist that has decorated the yard with her sculptures. Robyn is warm and engaging and very helpful about ideas for traveling in the region. We had... More

A very genuine warm and friendly welcome is guaranteed at this very special place. The view from our window was superb and Robyn could not have been more helpful - she wants each guest to treasure that spectacular coastline and the picturesque and interesting inland areas. Visit Timboon too!

We have stayed in hundreds of pubs ans B & B's across all states of Australia and none compare with 12 Apostles Secret Spot. Your host, Robyn, is a such a gem, from the moment you meet her it is as if you have known her your whole life. Her culinary skills would easily extract a 10 from the MKR... More

We stayed for two nights and I felt I want to stay for two months. For me it was spiritual experience thanks to an amazing hostess Robyn and her beautiful accommodation set in a beautiful nature and full of very creative artwork that she did. On top of that the breakfast was full of flavour made by eggs from her... More

Beautiful spot close to the 12 Apostiles. Robyn made wonderful suggestions so we could see the sites when it wasn't too crowded. Bedroom was small but perfectly laid out and very clean. Breakfast was delicious!

We stayed at 12 Apostles Secret Spot hosted by Robin last month and she is a friendly, glowing and warm hostess. We hold her and her B&B in the highest regard. Robin's knowledge of the Great Ocean Road and local area is bar none. She provided fabulous recommendations of sites to see including the Bay of Martyrs, Loch Ard Gorge... More

Stayed with Robyn last November. Her place is about 5 minutes drive from main road for 12 Apostles. It's set in lovely countryside and Robyn is the perfect host. We stayed in a lovely en-suite room with a 4 poster bed. It was liberally decorated with Robyn's arts and crafts. The garden is lovely and she helped me pick some... More

Stayed one night at this B&B and it was great. Fantastic location close to all the sites of Gt Ocean Road. Loved sitting out and watching the sunset and then the stars. Fantastic host (thank you!) who made us feel welcome and was happy to provide travel tips so we got the most from our visit. Room was clean and... More

We stayed 2 couples for 2 nights after christmas. The host, Robin, is very nice lady that hosted us as we were her own family. Rooms were very clean and organized (but pretty small) with amazing views and a big backyard to watch the view at day and the stars at night (Robin's tip!). Best place you can find to... More
