We stayed 1 night and it was pretty much 1 night too long. Upstairs of the cabin was extraordinarily hot with a ridiculous evaporative cooler mascara ding as a/c. There was no lounge downstairs but given the heat upstairs there was nowhere to sit. My poor kids somehow managed to sleep upstairs - not sure how. Overpriced and would not...

We stayed at Drift Away cottage which is removed from the other cottages. Kids loved it, it was rustic and covered all requirements. Chickens were a big hit with our family. Enjoyed our stay.

We stayed in the old house/cottage 4km from Eastern Reef main complex. This was an old farm house. This was by far the most expensive and least value for money of all the similar style of accommodation we stayed in during our great Ocean Road trip - all booked through similar sites. The cottage has no heating apart from a...

Our 15 year old daughter had been on a student leadership for 5 weeks (out of 9). We hadn't seen her or heard her voice for all that time. It was parent visiting weekend and I just wanted somewhere cosy, warm, friendly and comfortable so we could all catch up and chat. THIS WAS PERFECT. A wonderful homely cottage with...

We stayed here when travelling up the great ocean road. We stayed in the Bay Reef cottage. For two nights it was perfect. The people were really friendly and made us feel at home. The room was clean and comfortable. It was a short drive from the 12 Apostles. It was only a few minutes drive from the main centre....

Six of us spent a night in the cottage next to the main entrance. To our surprise, the cottage we stayed in doesn't actually have any room. There was one double bed in the hall downstairs, one double and 2 single beds upstairs. This was the first time I slept on a bed placed next to the living, dining and...

We stayed in the small studio unit - Estuary Reef - on a wild wet,and windy night . It was lovely and warm with electric blanket too and full of individual quirky touches. It had everything you need for self catering and is well located on the western end of the gt ocean Roiad.
