Our second visit. 5 star accommodation with fantastic water views. As good as queensland, maybe even better. Everything you could possibly want or need in the units, the only thing missing is you. The view fromnupstairs bedroom overlooking the water is truly breathtaking. Will be back again

Hi Kerry, We loved your review... thank you! Often we take for granted the beautiful Captains Cove views and setting as we see it every day. You have just reminded us how special it is. We really look forward to welcoming you back to the Cove and so glad that you enjoyed your stay. More

This was our first time staying here and it was smashing! The apartment was well appointed, beautifully clean, quiet and extremely comfortable. The local village offers excellent shopping for food and drinks and the apartment has superior cooking facilities and utensils for the home cook. Do give it a try, as you won't be disappointed by the Cove, the service... More

This is about our tenth stay at Captain's Cove which just about says it all. We just love coming back to a place which is one of our favourite holiday destinations. We have just stayed as part of a group of 15. Some couples shared but we love having the spaciousness of a whole apartment to ourselves. The setting on... More

My wife and I recently stayed at Captain`s Cove for 5 nights (for the price of 3- winter special), and we both were very impressed with the quality of all the amenities inside this townhouse-like apartment. The view from the main bedroom upstairs overlooking the lakes/canals is breathtaking and I can only imagine just how good it is in the... More

We stayed in Apartment 9 for three nights in June 2014. The three bedroom apartment was in very good condition, very well furnished, clean and very quiet and secure. We would highly recommend this accommodation.

We booked in for 1 night and ended staying for 5 nights at this very special place with its 2 level villas, great office staff, heated pool (31 degrees), hire bikes, comfortable bed, huge living area and kitchen, 2 balconies facing the canal which feeds into the 60,000 hectare/150,000 Gippsland Lakes water wonderland, a private boat pontoon. The location is... More

Captains Cove was the perfect place for a mini break. Units were very clean. Kitchens set up really well and even had scanpan pots etc. Loved being in such a private and relaxing little area where you could enjoy your own pier with or without a boat. Plenty of ducks to feed for kids too. Staff could not have been... More

We recently had four nights at Captains Cove and it has to be one of the best holiday locations we have been to in Victoria. To have our boat tied up to our own private jetty in front of our beautiful unit was sensational. The weather was perfect as was the service, location, views etc, etc. The one word that... More

We stayed here for 4 nights just after Easter and it was a delight. The views from the apartment are just sensational and the water is very relaxing to watch from the terrace/balcony of an evening (or any time of the day!) The apartment was immaculate from front door to back door and quite spacious. Ideal for families or a... More

Sometimes when you book online when you get there it's nothing like they say but not Captains Cove it was everything and more . From the moment we arrived the girls at reception were so helpful and friendly. Our apartment just gorgeous and really clean something I look for. And mooring our boat out the front was magic hardly used... More
