Pretty chilled cabin, clean and comfy. Staff very friendly, although we arrived there late and did self checkin, but she helped us with our questions over the phone. Just be aware it doesn't have wifi and you can get slightly reception on planned mobile but not prepayed. Very close to twelve apostles but yet remotely located at middle of no...

not sure how the 'beach' applies, these lovely wooden shacks are nowhere near sand....but who cares, they are so peaceful and relaxed, not to mention comfortable. I actually loved the fact there was no wifi,...imagine, we actually had to speak to each other, and that the cooking facilities are outside and down the hill. the Barbie area was just great....one...

Picture this. A basic timber shack, comfy bed and all the basic / simple amenities. So do yourself a favour, pick up some local produce, a steak and bottle of red, search for some kindling and wood, make your own fire and enjoy the outdoors instead of searching for a restaurant. A little bit of magic was found here. If...

Hi Deven, Its great to hear that you enjoyed your stay overall and I appreciate the feedback. We are actually having a shutdown this week which involves a installing some night time security lighting. As country people we are used to the darkness but appreciate that those from townships are more accustomed to better lighting. We are also thinking about...

This was a cabin that we liked a lot. Good-sized room with kitchenette and everything needed to make a meal. Comfortable bed. The lodge is somewhat isolated. The nearest store is in Princetown, about a 5-minute drive away, but it closed early on the one day and wasn’t open at all the next day due to an electrical outage. It...

We booked this to give ourselves a break from driving up and down the Great Ocean Road. The site has great views over the valley away from the sea and is shielded from highway noise by a hill. However, the cabins are shabby and poorly furnished. The bathroom is primitive and the kitchens are no match for what customers have...

Stayed here over Easter for one night, we were lucky to get a last minute cancellation and the host was very friendly and able to accommodate us for one night over Easter which most other places wouldn’t, a big tick! The location is great, just off the great ocean road, although don’t let the name fool you, there is no...

OK, so we're city dwellers from interstate and I booked this little cottage because it was close to the Apostles. When we first drove down the driveway, my kids teenage kids were freaking out slightly because they lost internet connection, it was pretty funny. Then when we parked up they were like OMG where have you brought us Mum, there's...

We booked a night recently and I enjoyed the stay. It's secluded and in the bush just off the road a few minutes before the 12 Apostles. There's 5 cabins spaced out with beautiful nature noises, it's self contained with quipped kitchen and linen provided. It was very hot inside and the aircon didn't work properly so didn't really cool...
