Great spot but very low on support. When you do see the lady from reception she is great but appears to only be there for a maximum 3 hours a day. A big tip is that if you need something plan ahead.

The accommodation is well located, in a very calm street, close to the beach. It is a perfect place to have a break and enjoy the comfort of the villa (spa, wood fire, washing machine,...) as well as the wonderful landscapes of the Great Ocean Road !

I really enjoyed staying in this place since the accommodation is very spacious and comfy. During winter the fire place is really a plus ! Besides the view on the bay from the villa is fantastic and you can enjoy the landscape even if it is rainy. Staff very nice.

We had a very nice time in one of the little villas. The hotel is very close to the beach and after a beach walk, we really enjoyed to warm up with a hot spa bath and then relax in front of the fires with a cup of tea. The people were very nice and the villas charming and clean.

Our family stayed in a 2 bedroom villa with sea view. It was clean and basically we had everything we need for our 2 day stay. Great location and easy access to the beach, the view was amazing here! The wireless connection was great too. The German ladies at the reception were very friendly and helpful. Thank you so much... More

Our stay in Rayville Boat Houses was very pleasant, our villa was light, bright and very comfortable. Staffs there are friendly and offered lots of useful tips of local attractions. The location was very near the beach that had a great walking trail.

For an overnight stay, just perfect. Fully recommend. Nice interior, comfortable mattresses, clean and friendly people. This place is in a good setting in the harbour area. We could walk to everywhere to beaches, the fish/n chip shop in the harbour and to all the places in town.
