Absolutely beautiful weekend away. Stunning views, very comfortable accommodation. Owner is very friendly and helpful. A great place to stay in the colder months with a warm fire and spa bath overlooking the ocean. I suggest you take lots of groceries as there isn't as much provided compared to other 'self catered' accommodations on the GOR. Overall this is an... More

Great to hear you had a lovely stay. It's so cosy at this time of the year with the glow and warmth of the fire. There are 2 supermarkets in town to buy supplies but we do provide fresh milk, a selection of breads, spreads, flavoured teas, coffee and real tea leaves for tea connoisseurs. We also have hot chocolate... More

Absolutely loved this place. The views are amazing (you can see the ocean from every window), it's quiet (the cabins are well spaced and I didn't hear another voice all week end) and rooms have everything you could ask for. We put the fire place on, sat back and had a relaxing few days. Alan is great, he came in... More

Villa 1 has the wood fire as does Villa 2. They also have the floor level spa. Villas 4 and 5 have the gas log fires and sunken spas which are a bit different. It doesn't matter which villa you are in because they all have uninterrupted views from every location....even the double shower has a view! Unlike some properties... More

Stayed here a couple of years ago. Just a purely magical weekend. Clean, comfortable and wonderful views. Just wow. If you are travelling from interstate or overseas do not pass up on a luxury stay here.

We decided to go somewhere special to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. And we were not disappointed. It was an escape from the norm. So peaceful. A most magnificent setting. We were enthralled from the very first breathtaking view across the beautiful Apollo Bay.

We absolutely loved our stay. The villa, location, view, and hosts are all wonderful. Lots of windows looking over the valley, town, and water. The wood fireplace was nice. The villa was super clean. Everything was perfect and as advertised.

What a beautiful place to stay. Self contained cabin nestled high on a hillside above the stunning Apollo Bay. The view is amazing and very tranquil.

Loved your photo of the sunken spa with candles, bubble bath and wine....all provided for your stay by Alan and Glenda. It's those extra little touches that show thoughtfulness. We don't think there could be a much more romantic, relaxing getaway. More

One thing that we take pride in is how we positioned each villa to take advantage of the views. Some places advertise amazing views and amenities but it really only applies to a small percentage of the accommodation. At Point of View, each villa has equally stunning, uninterrupted views. Many guests comment on how the view is even better than... More

Firstly if your looking for a place to escape the hectic lifestyle this is exactly the place you should be looking for.
