“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

We had just one night here but we would have liked to stay longer. A very well-equipped and comfortable apartment, close to the Ocean Grove shops and beach, but also very peaceful. Ideal for a couple or a family with one or two kids. Friendly operators and a few special features made this a very happy experience.

We stayed in unit 2 of the apartments. Communications with Kate before our arrival date was excellent. An early entry was appreciated. Everything was good in the unit which catered for most needs. Certainly a handy place to the shopping centre and the beach. The small courtyard for our apartment was a bit untidy and did not let in any sunshine at all due to the overhanging plants and creepers, which was a bit of a disappointment. A couple of steel chairs and small table, so not a very good place to relax and have a drink in at the end of the day unfortunately Also the BBQ and table and chairs next to it could do with a bit of a clean up, some of the chairs have rust coming through the handles, we went out there because the courtyard was just too small. Car park was ok with only three cars parking in it while we were there, but could be a problem for a fourth car and there are four units. Foxtel on the telly was great. Only other bit of a negative was that the toilet was downstairs from the bedroom and was a bit of a bugga during the night. But definitely not all doom and gloom. Very comfortable and spacious and we enjoyed our stay

Room Tip: If you want some arvo sun check out the other apartments. Also FYI we bought some steak from the l...

We stayed one Saturday night after being notified of a cancellation by Kate. On arrival we were really happy with the apartment. Everything you need for a short stay (or longer one) is here. Beds are comfy, cooling works a treat, kitchen is small but perfectly formed! My only negative comment would be that the upstairs bedrooms are 'open' to the living area - given it's a loft style apartment that shouldn't be surprising. For a family it's not a problem but for a group sharing it can be quite noisy (and not very private!!). All in all a really great place - 2 minute walk to Main St and the Coles supermarket and numerous cafes and restaurants. Would definitely stay again!

The location was excellent, 2 min walk to shops, and very close to surf beach. Our dogs loved the very secure, pretty little garden. Well stocked kitchen with incidentals like paper towels and plastic wrap - appreciated. Apartment was spacious and our two teenagers enjoyed having foxtel and a cupboard of games.

Many thanks for taking the time to write your review Debra. We really appreciate your feedback and glad that you and your family (including the pooches) enjoyed your visit.

Ocean Grove has a great 'dog beach', in the off season dogs are free to run along the beach from Ocean Grove all the way to Point Lonsdale without their leads. Teenagers are allowed too !

See you next time ...

We found that the apartment had a nice homely feel, was clean and is very convenient to the township. We enjoyed our stay. We stayed in January and found the caretaker Kate to be very helpful with our questions about the area and feel that she is a genuinely friendly person. There is a free bus service right outside the front gate that goes to all sorts of spots on the Bellarine Peninsular. The temperature was around 33 degrees when we stayed but the aircon handled it NO PROBLEM. Two negatives were that the Bar-B-Que and table had a lot of cobwebs and bird doos on them and the apartment has a skylight and windows that are not darkened enough for this time of year. We got woken up by the light early in the morning. I would still stay here during the summer again as these two negatives do not outweigh the positives.There is a cosy looking fireplace in the lounge that makes me feel that I will return to this apartment during the cooler months. All in all we were still happy with our stay.

We look forward to welcoming you in the winter months (June, July & August) we do have wood fires with plenty of dry firewood and kindling provided, winter is a lovely time in Ocean Grove.

Perfect for a little red or two to watch the footy on Foxtel (go tigers)

Thanks again, Kate

The Terrace Lofts Spa Apartment was really clean and good to stay in with my friend for our short 4 day holiday to the beach. It was really good when the weather was hot because you could stay in the cool with the fans on :) . It was also good when it was raining because you can stay inside and watch foxtel. The beds are really comfortable and the couch is to :) It has all the appliances you need in the kitchen. the only thing that was wrong was that our spa didn`t work but it was getting fixed when we left. it was only a 10 minute walk to the beach and the shops were very short walking distance.

Room Tip: Spa Apartment is good you get a room with a double bed and then another has two single beds. :)

We booked a two bedroom apartment at the Terrace Lofts for two couples. Unfortunately the loft design of our apartment involved two bedrooms with partial walls. Coupled with the polished concrete floors, this meant we could hear every sound anyone was making in the apartment. This accommodation would be great for a couple on their own (as you wouldnt mind hearing each other) but if you would like some privacy from your companions stay somewhere else as we felt as if we were staying in one big open plan studio, which was not the intention when we booked an apartment with two bedrooms. Apart from this, the accommodation was nice but it is probably for a couple on their own (or maybe with a young child) rather than for multiple adults.

Many thanks for taking the time to write your review.

We suggest that if you did want to stay with another couple our Large Garden apartment might suit you better, the living areas are much larger and it has 2 toilets and private bedrooms rather than the open plan living.

We really appreciate your feedback and glad that you enjoyed your visit.
