Nothing online or even word of mouth can explain what you find when you arrive at Acquus Zinga. As soon as you drive over the rocky hill the darth vader-ish compound takes you by surprise. This is just the beginning of the experience. We stayed 1 night in the Pelican room which overlooked the back half of the B&B (if... More

Intrigued by other reviews we booked one night here while traveling the Great Ocean Road. This B&B far surpassed our expectations. Down a windy road and past a few cows you find this modern building with incredible views down to the ocean. We had a delicious dinner on the deck with one of the best sunsets we've ever seen. After... More

Our journey on the Great Ocean Road would not have been complete without our stay in Acquus Zinga. It was an experience like we had never had, an isolated, architecturally stunning B&B with soul and substance. It is modern and stylish without a trace of pretentiousness and it has a real connection with the beautiful landscape surrounding it. The room... More

The website for this place did not prepare us for what we found when we arrived at Acquus Zinga in Johanna. After driving down a quiet winding road we found a large modern building perched on a hill with 360 degree views of the countryside and the ocean. The interior is full of intriguing furniture and design pieces, yet managing... More

What a find! Arrived for a two day stay, totally surprised at the stark modern architectural gem that greeted us. It's amazing and matched by the incredible hospitality of our hosts Franc and Felicity. We were staying in the two bedroom apartment with full cooking facilities however with Felicity cooking excellent dinners, why would you bother. The website photos do... More

We had such a great time here! Many thanks to our two lovely hosts who not only prepared a delicious breakfast, but also whipped up a top quality dinner and cocktails on request. Sitting on the large balcony, drinks in hand, watching the sun set over the water was also a highlight. The style of the place, I guess, is... More

Impromtu business on the Great Ocean Road and the elusive birthday present for my wife remaining just that with one days shopping left, led to a chance discovery of this gem in the otways. From viewing the website we had decided to be prepared for the best or worst in B & B accomodation. It was the best with genuine... More

It's great to be surprised, actually it doesn't happen often enough when we are constantly exposed. Stayed here recently for an impromptu getaway after stumbling across it online. Booked the Pelican room which was fun and playful, with reminders that you were actually on a weekend away - the ocean view from the shower was amazing. The food (dinner and... More

My partner and I stayed here when we first got together a few years ago. It felt like we were at our parents house with them downstairs. Our room was just that... one tiny little square room. It had an old bed and really bright colours everywhere. I remember walking into the room and thinking, omg we really have to... More

Three couples from the city discovered Acquus Zinga and booked a weekend away. What a find! From the rawness of the design, to the sensitive service and cool vibe of the place, we knew we had stumbled upon something special. With no disregard to the Twelve Apostles this mini hotel is a destination in itself and worth the effort to... More
