We just returned from a one night stay at the Daysy Hill Country Cottages right outside Port Campbell, Australia. And I can honestly say that of all the places we stayed in two weeks Down Under (and we hopped all over the country usually staying one or two nights at most) this was the one place we wished we actually would've spent more time in. We stayed in one of the detached cottages (the Rose Cottage, specifically), although they do have what they call suites which looked like they were a building with 2 or 4 units in them and it was extremely well laid out, comfortable, roomy and inviting. The view from the kitchen and deck of the setting sun was one of the best sunsets we'd ever seen. It's a couple miles outside of Port Campbell itself, so you need a car to get there and to get around (ie. get into town for food)--but if you got to PC itself, you were probably driving yourself anyway. The cottage had a wood burning stove/fireplace that looked like it would have been VERY cozy if the weather were cooler. If you wanted to do nothing at all but just relax and veg out, there was CD player, DVD player and copious amounts of satellite channel choices on the TV. The only thing that we didn't like about it was that the air conditioning unit was in the living room and even after several hours running the cool air hadn't made it into the bedroom yet, so when we went to bed it was a bit stuffy and warm. They provided a small fan but there wasn't really a good place to set it so it would cover the whole bed without blowing directly on one of us. But we did use it and still slept quite well.
