We are a family of 5 and stayed in Cottage 1, booked through Booking.com Location is great, but being lower than the road, there are no views of the sea from the cottage. The positives are it’s a quiet location with expansive grass area for the kids to run around and play.

"Ask for a room away from the Great Ocean Road"
"All cottages had beautiful views."

$140 - $236 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
