We stayed in cottage 2 with unobstructed views out to sea. Gorgeous window seat and fireplace. Very comfortable king sized bed and totally modern bathroom with complimentary toiletries and a full kitchen with a complimentary selection of cereal, milk, juice, wine and other goodies were left for us. Don't want to say too much as I want to make sure... More

It is Paradise. The owner is friendly and he owns sheep which makes the place kid-friendly. The view from the room is utterly breathtaking and so is the property. We highly recommend cottage 3 because it has a view and has a garden. You can see whales and wallabies from the cottage. Overall this is a very special place and... More

Points South By The Sea is like a dream come true. Everything about it is amazing - the views, the setting, the understated luxury of the accommodation, the hospitality and the feeling that you are away from it all. One could just go on and on about how picture perfect the place is. I had the best views of my... More

My partner and I stayed three nights at Cottage 1 (red couch) in early August and we both loved it. Awesome ocean views and you can fall asleep at night to the sound of the ocean crashing on the shore. Has a very comfortable and cozy feel to it, especially when relaxing in front of the fire. Bryan was a... More

Needed somewhere to just chill for a few days and we hit the jackpot with Points South by the Sea. Bryan very easy to deal with and was nice of him to pop around to say hello. Cottage well thought out and very comfortable. Sitting on the hill, with the fire burning, we loved the views and the sounds of... More

A wonderful place to unwind and just relax. Sensational fireplace, amenities and location. Close to restaurants, but also great to spend time indoors and have a home cooked dinner in front of the roaring fireplace. Great for children too, highly recommended. Next time we'll stay longer, we will be back!

I stayed one night with a friend visiting from Paris. This was my friend's first visit to Australia and the gorgeous cottage lived up to my expectations plus more. We really enjoyed our stay, didn't want to leave. The location, cottage design and style and the incredible view was a truely rugged Australian Seaside experience. The cottage was beautifully furnished,... More

The cottage was well appointed taking advantage of the fantastic vista from every room. Loved the fireplace to stay cosy also. The hamper was a surprise treat and one of many above and beyond touches. The cottage is in striking distance to Apollo Bay to get essentials but far enough that the only sound was the crashing waves and birds.... More

Thank you for your kind thoughts. Our cottages certainly have great views of the ocean and being part of a farm ensures you get to see lots of native life as well as a few sheep and alpacas. We are currently enjoying southern right whales passing by, so very excision We hope to see you again soon Warm regards Bryan... More
