Maxine was a lovely host who had great stories and was super friendly but also left us alone when we needed. Her breakfast was delicious and she added lots of extra herbs and spices - a real chef. The bed was super comfy and the room was decorated very nicely. I would come here again in a heartbeat.

This B&B is set in a quiet location, a short walk to the heart of Port Campbell and to the beach. There are just two double rooms with en suite and a common area. The usual tea and coffee making facilities are available, as well as a fantastic cooked breakfast (or continental, if that's what you prefer). The bedrooms were...

What a great place to rest up after visiting the area for business. Maxine is very hospitable and the rooms are very clean and self sufficient. A great communal area that offers comfort and everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Couldn't have felt more comfortable and a super breakfast . Thanks Maxine

My wife and I spent last evening, 24 May 16, at Sounds of the Sea B&B and thoroughly enjoyed it. The owner, Maxine, goes the extra mile to ensure that her guests are comfortable; my wife liked her so much that she commented that she wished she could take Maxine home with her. The B&B has two bedrooms each with...

Clean and comfortable, quaint and cosy. Very friendly host that takes an interest in her guests and goes to great effort to make them feel at home. It wasn't really obvious at first that we may have had to share with other guests, however, we were lucky to have the place to ourselves.

Sounds of Sea felt more like a "family" stay than a B & B with only 2 rooms w/private baths that opened up to a common but small living/dining area. But it was all so cozy and inviting and Maxine, our hostess, was lovely. She cooked us a wonderful breakfast and choices were offered for us to fill out the...

My partner stayed for only one night ( wish it could have been longer ) with Maxine on our trip along the Great Ocean Road. Such a delightful B&B, full of charming treasures and very comfortable bedroom and living area. We loved the garden and a very quiet location only a short walk to Port Campbell shops and restaurants. Maxine...

Stayed 1 night whilst driving Great Ocean Road and we couldn't have picked a better place. Good location and distance from Melbourne to stop on first night. Clean, welcoming and a good breakfast. Would recommend to anyone.

Maxine's B&B is very well kept with lovely eclectic furnishings, and extremely comfortable beds, very clean rooms and was nice that both bedrooms have their own ensuite with toilet and shower. There's a beautiful garden and a deck with chairs. My husband and I stayed with our parents, and Max built a fire for our arrival, so everything was warm...

“It is very homey, with lots of collectibles from Maxine's travels around the world. It is exotic and quirky yet very welcoming. I personally loved the grape vine covered pergolas and wilderness garden.”
