The house we got was pretty clean and had a good size. However, they did not have housekeeping everyday. We had to find a way to dispose food stuff as we were cooking in the evenings. If wifi is important to you, I suggest you get your own wifi from Telstra as the wifi they provide is unreliable.

We had 3 nights at Captains Cove on our drive from Sydney to Melbourne. Waking up overlooking the water, then having breakfast on the deck in the sunshine, who could ask for more? The apartment was really well furnished and even had a BBQ on the deck. The laundry upstairs came in handy - I even did some ironing in... More

Our family has been coming to Captains Cove for a number of years and it just gets better and better. Its location on the canal with a berth for our yacht right outside our door is perfect. The beds are the most comfortable I have slept in, and the newly revamped fully equipped kitchen in our unit made cooking for... More

My wife and I stayed in a recently 'renovated' property, however all the rooms were very plain and clinical, they could do with a splash of colour or some pictures. The furniture could do with being freshened up or replaced.They seem to be very popular for Australians and I don't blame them, as they are in a great position over... More

We only could spend two nights in this beautiful place. It was absolute great. We booked a two bedroom apartment and got a 3 bedroom villa. The villa has everything you need and was very clean. The water view just a dream. The people at the reception are very friendly and helpful. Also the free (no limits) internet access worked... More

We were surprised at the size of the unit - it was much bigger than we expected. It was so clean, spacious and in a great spot. The heated pool was a bonus! I would highly recommend a stay at Captain's Cove

I am sitting on our balcony, in front of our own jetty overlooking a beautiful canal from our 2 story waterfront villa in an absolute corner of paradise called Captains Cove. We have stayed 1 week and are sorry it's our last night tonight. In 30 years of holidaying around the country, Captains Cove would be one of the most... More

Units are well located being right on the water and each with their own jetty. Service is friendly if not entirely reliable. Walking distance to the paynesville shops. If you fill on the six person units then prices are very reasonable.

One night in absolute heaven! The whole unit was beautifully furnished and very comfortable, the views were amazing, the whole atmosphere was so relaxing. In fact, I've never in the 8 years I've been with my partner seen him that relaxed and unwound. We were also greeted with a bottle of local wine for my partners birthday, which was such... More
