Stayed as a couple, 28-30 April 2107.Our wish list for a retreat: wood fire; jacuzzi with a view; privacy. This place had it all. Lake cottage has new bathroom (including a walk-in shower), a well-equipped full size kitchen, and a spa bath on the deck. Views from spa bath and lounge of rainforest and ocean are better than the photos...

Thank you to Neil & Bo for our relaxing weekend away at their Forest Cottage. We had all the creature comforts we could have wanted. Warm and inviting and best of all we could bring our beloved pooch with us. Which made it the perfect weekend that we could share without stressing about our pup. Beautiful forest all around. The...

Consequently we strive to satisfy all of our guests.both 2 &...

After driving along the sensational Great Ocean Road, my partner and I were surprised with the beauty, cuteness and warmth of the Glenaire Cottage! Such a beautiful and clean cottage with an outstanding view of some country and sea. Great location if you want to travel around the Great Ocean Road with comfortable bedding! The spa topped it all off...

Charming cottages with real country feel. Stunning views over hills and sea. A lovely place to relax and wind down, with every comfort catered for. Shops about 15 minutes away, but lovely place to make your own dinner and sit and watch the sunset through the windows. Thank you for a delightful stay for us and our pets

We do try to think of everything!! The Cove Cottage is about to get a full makeover so by the end of August it will be even more comfortable & polished. The views? We are not messing with them, they stay as gorgeous as nature has made them. Warm regards Bo

Glenaire is a great location for exploring the Great Ocean Road and our cottage provided extremely comfortable accommodation for all of us, including our dog. The kitchen is well equipped and the views glorious ... add in Bo and Neil, our delightful hosts, and you've got the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway!

This was our second time staying at the Cape Cottage (1 of the 4 Glenaire Cottages) and as before, we found it a relaxing haven away from the business of city life. If your family includes a dog, like ours, Glenaire Cottages is ideal. The cottages all have fenced grassy yards (big enough to play a restrained game of frisbee...

Thanks for your kind words Kristi. It was lovely to see your friendly faces again and such a joy to see Tugboat gleefully wagging his tail in the forest air. I believe a frisbee or two were left behind but Bo assures me they are on their way home. Cheers, Neil.

Everything you need to escape from the world and relax. We went in the heat of January, but the airconditioner and fans maintained a beautiful environment. The Owner Bo is a delight. From the moment you arrive she is hospitable and warm. You're really left to your own devices, which is great for a romantic getaway. Almost no mobile reception,...

Thank you Meredith. So glad you enjoyed it. Next time ask for free WiFi. We are in a bit of a blackspot so Neil has set up a WiFi system so all guests can keep in touch if they have to. Neil provides a code and voila! Best regards, Bo.

We spent a week over the Christmas break in the newly renovated Lake cottage and it was absolutely lovely!! The cottage was very pet friendly and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay - we'll definitely be back again :-)

Thanks Tania. Not sure if you got to enjoy the log fire but it is pretty dreamy up there in winter with crackling flames and a wild ocean. Maybe that's when we might see you next? Whatever, look forward to it. Kind regards, Bo.

All have outstanding ocean views, log fires and your comfort and privacy in mind. We are pet friendly and provide firewood, fresh flowers, romantic candles, all linen and can cater to your whims by arrangement.
