Of all the pet-friendly places we have stayed with our 3 dogs, Johanna Seaside Cottages would be our top pick. We were booked into Joanna Cottage and, on the day we arrived, the weather was terrible. To find the fire already lit and the cottage warm, we could not have asked for a better welcome. The woodbin outside the door... More

We stayed in the Joanna Cottage in February while spending three days hiking part of the Great Ocean Walk. For those looking to do the walk, this is a great place to base yourself, but it might be worthwhile talking to the dedicated Shuttle Service Providers working in the area to sort out your itinerary, rather than going direct with...

Stayed for two days in the Joanna cottage. The first day it was raining which didn't bother us as we could spend time in this lovely cottage. What a view!! We had a logfire and made lunch with eggs that we had picked in the henhouse and herbs and vegetables from the garden. What a privilege! Our two girls, 9... More

Stayed in "Johanna Green cottage" last weekend with family and friends and we were totally surprised with the facilities. We found used teabags in the teapot and the water we used had a terrible smell so we had to buy water bottles coz we didn't feel ok to drink water from the tap line. The dishes we used weren't clean... More

Johann a beach is wild and remote and right on the Great Ocean Walk. Each cottage is private with lovely views of the valley and/or the sea. We had both and enjoyed every minute of the view.

Stayed a week here while completing the Great Ocean Walk. We stayed in the old Farmhouse. It was very comfortable, it does accommodate 10 but there were only 6 of us.
