I've organised 3 nights with Lisa and Paul at Big Blue Backyard to celebrate my partner's 35th birthday. Since it was a special occasion I wanted to go "all out" for a long weekend in Victoria and having organised a few stunning dinners, accommodation was hugely important. Big Blue Backyard has definitely not let me down - we've chosen the... More

We arrived at Big Blue Backyard to the lovely Lisa greeting us. We had been married two days beforehand and due to work commitments were unable to take a honeymoon and I am also grateful as otherwise we wouldn't have found this little slice of heaven. The hideaway that we stayed in was the beach, beautifully presented, the bed was... More

My partner took me here for my 30th birthday. It was absolutely wonderful! The entire place is super relaxing and you get the nature vibe whilst being in complete luxury. Lisa the host was just lovely and friendly without being in the way. We never got to meet Paul but I think he was busy in the kitchen cooking delicious... More

The Big Blue Backyard was absolutely beautiful! The food and hospitality was amazing. Walking out of the property and straight onto the beach was great! The place was so relaxing and Lisa and Paul are so friendly. We can't wait to go back! Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Possibly not the most eloquent way to describe it, however this place was so awesome it took the words out of my mouth, rearranged them and then just created gurgling noises. We loved everything about it. The rooms? Wow The food? We regretted going out and eating elsewhere. It was just.... oh! The location? As long as you have a... More

This was a wedding anniversary journey....and many a years' anniversary journey it was..which made it so touchingly lovely. We have travelled quite extensively, but the Other 'Arf decided and booked the Big Blue Backyard. And he chose very well. Even though winter time, that did not detract from the beauty of the "Bush" accommodated he chose. Yes, the Big Blue... More

Thank you to Lisa and Paul who have created a beautifully unique getaway on a sublime patch right on the edge of national park coastline. Out of the three themed rooms we chose the 'Bush Retreat' which was very comfortable - great heating, comfortable bed, beautiful bathroom and we loved the outdoor spa! Not to mention a very tasteful decor.... More

Big Blue Backyard is one of the most pristine, stylish, romantic, boutique getaways in Victoria. Having searched for weeks for a 5 star hotel, all I could find were out-dated accommodation and big brand hotels. I was truly impressed when I came across BBB. From the minute I had booked with BBB I received correspondence from our hosts, asking whether... More

We came to the big blue backyard for a getaway for my 30th birthday. It was perfect! Lisa was there to greet us when we arrived and it felt like we were staying with friends. Lisa was very warm and welcoming - I'd never experienced this when coming to a B&B before. There was a bottle of bubbles in the... More

Wow.. Upon booking our room - I had a feeling it was going to special. And was definitely not diss appointed. We where pampered and well looked after from the minute we arrived. Not to mention - small little things, like a personal message left on the back of the Bathroom door welcoming us. And special vegan biscuits left in... More
