Simply perfect for a couples weekend getaway. As soon as we arrived we had a warm and friendly welcoming by owner Maryanne. She even had the fire place started for us! Everything is so carefully thought out, with complementary breakfast which included bacon and eggs, cheese, bread, jam, pancakes and condiments. Not to mention the bottle of champagne. In addition...

I agree with all the other reviews - this place is outstanding for a peaceful, relaxed getaway. Maryanne has been very thoughtful with the provisions and the supplies in the cottages - everything you need is there. And it's the little things which make a difference; i.e. proper wine glasses! You'd be surprised how many other places skimp on this... More

An amazing place to stay. Hosts Maryanne and Ian have carefully thought out every detail to make your stay as comfortable, relaxing and homely as possible. From Maryanne's warm welcoming smile to the bottle of bubbly, to the provisions of a full breakfast; bacon, eggs, coffee, orange juice, home made cookies, jam, pancakes and even a loaf of home made...

Stayed for two nights, misty and rainy, perfect! Wonderful accommodation, views to die for, everything you need. Fire was super warm and made the rooms cosy in a flash. Third best spa and view that we've discovered so far. Look at my other reviews and guess which spa bath and view is the best! Bed was comfortable and Zen Den... More

Hubby & I stayed for 2 nights just before the planned Aust tennis open. Being a school holiday period, we didn't want the usual crowded hotels or resorts full of screaming kids. We needed to recharge our batteries and some alone time with each other. The Window on the Otways has given us just that and more. This is totally... More

we stayed for 3 nights in studio one, it was beautiful! Was such a perfect weekend and couldn't of asked for anything more. We had complete privacy and felt very spoilt. It was luxury and the service was faultless. All the little extras that were supplied made the added difference and I was even left a bunch of flowers the... More

My fiancée and I stayed here 2 weeks ago as a weekend getaway. Maryanne was most helpful, she asked us to call when we over the Westgate Bridge so she could make sure the fire was on before we arrived. Once we got there she showed us around the property, how to use the spa, sauna and fireplace in the... More

Stayed for 2 nights at the end of May. Arrived around 5pm Friday evening. Was met by the host Maryanne who was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. She showed us around the Zen Den and then we followed her up to our studio. We stayed in studio 2 which is the further of the two from the office... More

We stayed here Friday & Saturday nights and Maryanne welcomed us with the fire roaring and a toasty warm canteliever studio. The spectacular view across the valley as the fog rolled in was breathtaking, and watching this whilst curled up on the couch as it rained was heaven. The service from the owner was faultless and the welcome basket of... More

A wonderful 2 nights in the cantilever studio, so peaceful and cosy with the log fire. Maryanne made us feel very welcome and then left us to our own devices, which was great. The jacuzzi and sauna were brilliant and the breakfast supplies were delicious. I hope we will be back!
