We stayed at Black Cockatoo cottages for three nights during a 10 day trip to Melbourne. It was a fantastic location for a break - stunning views of Wilson's Promontory, very private cottages and a really peaceful location. The owners were very friendly, we checked in with no problems & they offered information/help if we wanted anything or had any... More

Cannot fault this place or the owner who is serious about your stay being all you hope for. Spotlessly clean if a little out- dated (formica benchtops), but peaceful & out-of-the-way location. All tastes catered-for. Air-con/heating, fully equipped for self-catering holidays/short breaks. I cannot think of anything to add to make it the best place to be away from Melbourne... More

We stayed in Cottage 1 and what a lovely surprise when we arrived to gaze on the wonderful and tranquil view across a dairy property to Wilson's Prom National Park. The cottage is very well equipped with washing machine, outside line and pegs. The kitchen also has a good range of utensils and an oven.Outside on the cottage deck a... More

Amazing views from these cabins will want you to go back! Very private and excellently furnished. The owners are friendly and helpful. Best to stock up with food and drink before you get there. This was our favourite accommodation in our 4 weeks touring Australia.

My friends and I had an extremely pleasant stay. The cottages were very clean and cosy and was equipped with all the necessary amenities. It is very spacious and tastefully decorated. I would highly recommend a visit. Would love to go back for a longer stay.

Cottage was very neat and tidy and had an excellent view. Just 5 minutes from the Wilson Prom gate. My only problem was drinking water. There was a sign that says it's coming from rain water but nothing that says it's safe to drink. I'm confident the tap in Melbourne is fine but why is the sign even there? We... More

But from my BAD experience I was meant to stay 2 nights at the house paid $500 upfront few days earlier to the owners had 5 people staying... We didn't... More

I'm not quite sure what Black Cockatoo Cottages the previous 2 reviewers stayed in, but certainly not the same establishment on 60 Foley Road, Yanakie in which we stayed. We were greeted on arrival by our very polite, softly spoken host, who gave us a complete rundown on the property. He was very knowledgeable of the area, gave us maps... More

The worst place you can be. If you wanna ruin your holidays this is the best place for you. The owner is very rude and if he find another person paying more money even if you have already booked the cottage, he will kick you out without even any refund. Thats what happened to us. For me and my partner... More

Rules are strict, tools are dirty, and you are being watched by the owners and you get no privacy. Things are not sorted, its just horrible really, i would not recommend this cottage to anyone out there. JUST HORRIBLE
