A great location on the hills above Great Ocean Road with views out to the ocean. The room was well appointed and our only regret was that we couldn't stay two nights. The restaurant was excellent - again with a great view. Food was superb and so was the service. We would stay again without hesitation.

My family stayed at Chris's Villa's for 2 nights as part of our Great Ocean Road expirience. Talk about wow factor. The Villa's are clean, roomy and basic and partially sef contained which was more than enough to meet our accomodation needs however the view form the Villa's and restaraunt was truly spectacular! The restaraunt was spectacular and with daylight... More

While traveling from Melbourne to Apollo Bay we booked a night off the main road up Skenes Creek rd to stay at these villas. It was so enjoyable and views to die for. We had a two bedroom villa one bathroom, with double bed and two singles. It is split level with the living room and dining and kitchen opening... More

My wife and I think this place has a similar feel to the Caeser Augustus on Capri ( the beautiful hotel on the cliff edge on the iconic island) or the apartment I rented on the 33rd floor in the Q1 on Surfers. Stunning views from cloud level to the surrounding countryside and beaches. We experienced a windy night so... More

We had a king studio room. On arrival I was very disappointed with the room. It needs some maintenace and the replacing of the very worn vinyl sofa. The wooden floorboards felt dirty, the bed cover was stained and it didnt feel like it had been cleaned. Yes the views are outstanding and the room has a washing machine and... More

My hubby and I stayed at Chris' last night and were surprised and delighted by both our accommodation and the food in the restaurant. Set high up on the hillside out of Apollo Bay the views from our room were sensational and sweeping. An added bonus were the colourful parrots (King and Crimson Rosella) who paid numerous visits to our... More

After a day travelling along the Great Ocean Road we were blown away by Chris's villas, the views were spectacular all the way down the coast. We arrived early and were accommodated with an early check-in after they had just finished our room. Good comfortable accommodation with all the amenities required. Staying in unit 1 the lights from the restaurant... More

We stayed two nights during our great ocean road drive. Perched on a hilltop overlooking the sea the view from the room was spectacular. Occasionally you are visited by colorful birds. Had both breakfast and dinners at the restaurant and the food was truly good. Cannot forget the duck confit and the angus beef. The restaurant also has the same... More

The view is spectacular, which compensates for the tiredness of the room, because you are not necessarily booking for the room - although it would be nice if it was luxurious. The restaurant has the same amazing view and again I'm afraid it compensates for the food which is average at best. We ordered a local Pinot noir which was... More
