The owner Alan is lovely and extremely hospitable. My partner and I had a fantastic stay here and thoroughly enjoyed some quiet couple time. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone! Well worth every cent!!

This is a great location in terms of aspect, high on the hill overlooking Apollo Bay, and it is beautifully finished and equipped. It is also well provisioned with breakfast and other basics Thoroughly recommended.

Firstly if your looking for a place to escape the hectic lifestyle this is exactly the place you should be looking for. Whilst sitting on your balcony watching the ocean you feel your miles away from anything however in actual fact you can be in town in a matter of minutes. The hosts do a fantastic job providing a continental... More

We're glad you enjoyed the bottle of wine and the continental breakfast supplies. It is a truly romantic and relaxing setting perched on the hill where you can forget about work and enjoy play. More

This beautiful b&b had everything you could ask for. They have not forgotten anything. An amazing view from every angle in the villa. We had the perfect few nights away. As soon as we walked into the villa we were amazed by the view and then we were warmly welcomed by Alan, who was very helpful and more than willing... More

You can't get much better than breakfast on the balcony overlooking Apollo Bay town and the ocean. The view is ever changing with clouds, rainbows, brilliant sunshine, fog and the occasional thunderstorm with a great sound and light show such as we had this week. Hopefully you spotted some of the myriad of birds that visit the gardens, such as... More

Our room had a sunken spa, with a huge window overlooking the ocean. A great sounds system to use while we took in the view. Also the bed was super comfortable. It's only a short drive to main street, but feels a million miles away. All in all A++.

Thanks for the lovely feedback. We love hearing about guests who think our property is A++. That's what we strive for. We feel our villas are quite unique in that they are romantic, quiet, peaceful, relaxing and also have attention to detail and those amazing views. Hope to see you both again. More

This place was everything I wanted to celebrate our anniversary. Beautiful views, log fire place, king size bed, double shower, spa with views and private / secluded location. Perfect place to relax with a bottle of wine. Lots of little extras like continental breakfast, sparkling and chocolate on arrival and little vases of flowers made our stay truly memorable. Alan...

We love to hear this sort of feedback. We take pride in our villas, their cleanliness and presentation which people appreciate. All that extra detail such as the fresh flowers from our garden beside the bed, in the kitchen and by the spa and the fire going when guests arrive, take time. But our aim is to provide a quality...

Only five villas you are left in private. It is very relaxing and I can only say that the location is perfect! We saw many birds during our stay, which we loved, being birdwatchers. The view is wonderful and this was a real highlight of our six week honeymoon. It was so quiet. Loved it

Each villa is quite private and perfect for a honeymoon location or just a romantic getaway with that special someone. The gardens around our villas attract lots of birds, which come to feed on the bottlebrushes, wattles and other flowering shrubs. We have Kookaburras, King Parrots, Rosellas, New Holland Honeyeaters, Blue Fairy Wrens, Eastern Yellow Robins (My favourite), Wedge Tailed... More

The location is excellent, close to Apollo Bay but away from any noise, and nice views. The sleep quality is superb, and the villa we stayed in was clean and tidy. It has all the creature comforts you need, but no wi-fi (which wasn't an issue for us). * One thing though, make sure you keep proof of deposit and... More

Once again we do apologise for the confusion. It's a rare phenomenon to have 2 guests arriving on the same evening with the same name. Our customer service is highly valued by us. The percentage of returning guests is testament to this. As valued guests, we'd like to offer you a discount on your next visit to Point of View. More

This is truly an amazing place to stay. With only five villas, it is very peaceful and private. Each villa has its own privacy. The villas are very well equipped with everything you need. The view is to die for. Unfortunately the weather was not our friend, however it didn't dampen our stay. With the fire going, and the view,... More

Our villas are a perfect relaxation base for couples. Inclement weather means you can stay cozy and warm, watch satellite tv, soak in the large spa, crack open the chilled wine or wile away the time in the fluffy robes in front of the wood or gas log fire. More

This place is a little pricey but, boy, is it worth it! The views will just blow you away, and the jacuzzi in the cottage is to-die-for. It is private, and yet it is just a short drive away from eateries and a convenience store. The location is perfect - just over an hour's drive to see the 12 Apostles... More
