My husband and i stay here regularly for long weekends and we love it! We take our 3 dogs who love walking in the rainforest and enjoy the peace and quiet as much as we do. Bo and Neville are fabulous - nothing is too much trouble! Always plenty to do with the beach, rainforest, Apollo bay market and Otways... More

Why does everyone call me Neville? Thank you so much for that lovely review Lisa. The cottages have a bit of age so it is lovely to know the place is appreciated. And with so much acreage it does take a bit of commitment. This year we have re-stumped all the cottages, we are painting at the moment and this... More

We booked Glenaire Cottages locally at Apollo Bay Tourist Information Centre on the day, having just checked out of our pre booked accommodation which was was not up to standard. We made a great choice that morning. The cottage was one of four log, self catering chalets situated just off the Great Ocean Road about fifteen minutes west of Apollo... More

Everything was as good as we could have hoped. It is very quiet and cosy, and so many different species of beautiful birds could be seen from the windows, as well as a friendly kangaroo. There is a walking track through the property that is beautiful I highly recommend. The place is only a 20 min drive from the closest... More

We stayed in the Cove cottage for a romantic weekend together before the birth of our first child. Whilst we were advised there are no provisions included for breakfast, given the price and in comparison with most other places we have stayed at this level, we felt a few breakfast items could easily be provided. There is not even milk... More

My partner and I stayed at the Cover Cottage at Glenaire Cottages for our 6 year anniversary over the weekend. The cottage was absolutely perfect, the views were spectacular.

We are repeat visitors at Glenaire Cottages. Make no mistake you are in the bush, forget about your mobile and embrace the fact that you can get away from the maddening crowd and enjoy nature. Each cottage has an enclosed outdoor area for your dogs. Stacks of walking tracks and Johanna beach is a short (5km) drive away for fishing... More

We enjoyed our time here but considering the money we paid I expected a little more. The cottage we stayed in really needed updating. Compared to other places we have stayed and paid the same money for we were left a little deflated. The comforter on the bed was stained as was the carpet and the rug in the lounge... More

It is with regret we read of your disappointment in the cottage. Can I assure you that the carpets & rugs are shampooed monthly & the quilts are changed after each guest. The dog fee is to cover the extra cleaning & to remove nose marks from the windows, this all takes extra time for the cleaner. We are sorry... More

We stayed a couple of night during our drive on Ocean Drive. At first I was surprise. On the website, they show a lot of closeup. It make me feel it was a trendy / luxury cottage style living.

Yes, they are very authentic & comfortable "forest cottages". So glad you enjoyed the experience. You are right, we do advise guests to provision & top up with fuel en route. It's a shame you didn't ask about wifi, as it is available at reception. We are working on getting it to all of the cottages,the distance between the cottages... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Lakeside cottage at Glenaire Cottages. Bo & Neil could not have been more welcoming and accommodating of us, our six-month old baby and our two energetic dogs.
