“Amazing property with soooo much seclusion”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

We spent 2 nights at Cape Otway Cottages while exploring the Otways. The cottages were so well equipped, beautifully presented and were completely private from one another.
Sharon the Manager was so warm and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
We look forward to hopefully one day returning and would recommend this property to anyone.

Cape Otway Cottages is located 30 minutes west of Apollo Bay and is set amongst 60 acres native Otway bushland. All accommodation is extremely private and secluded, being at least 3/400 metres apart from each other. All accommodation is fully self-contained featuring.... Corner Spa baths Large couches with Sofa bed, Flat-screen TV's (free-to-air satellite TV reception), DVD and iPod dock/Stereo King beds with all linen and towels supplied Fully self-contained kitchen with good sized Fridge/FreezerStove/Oven, Microwave & Breadmaker Wood Fires (wood supplied) Wide decks with Outdoor furniture and Gas BBQs Continental breakfast provisions for your first morning Selection of Twinings Teas, Plunger and Instant Coffee, Salt/Pepper, Sugar. Dogs are very welcome inside at Cape Otway Cottages and we provide a comfy doggie bed, towels to wipe muddy paws, bowls and treats on arrival. Our cottages have received the National "Five Paw Award" from 'Life. Be in it' for the best dog-friendly accommodation in Australia (as well as the Victorian Award), so you can be sure that four legged visitors are very welcome here indeed. With our cottages being on a fairly large acreage and set well apart from each other, dogs can really be dogs here - with a high degree of freedom to explore. All of our accommodation has very spacious decks for canines (and humans) to hang out on and a secure area for doggies if needed. MoonRise and GrassTrees Cottages have sheltered decks with stainless wiring and gates at the entrances, MoonLight Cottage has a protected doggie yard with a high fence and huge kennel which is accessed via a gate off the deck and The Dunes Homestead offers a gated carport area. Most doggies stick to their owners like glue so this may not be an issue for you, however if dogs are inclined to wander there is a safe outdoor area at each cottage, or of course inside the cottage with you. Then when you go out together for a walk, there is all the freedom in the world to go off-lead. Our Studio Cottages are private and designed for couples. MoonRise Cottage is in a beautiful eucalypt glade with some quite large trees and a magical native background surrounding the cottage. MoonLight Cottage has the most open view of our studios and is nestled into the stringy barks and grass trees with a fantastic vista out across the Otway Ranges. GrassTrees Cottage is set high up on a stringy bark rise with clumps of grasstrees as well as interesting gnarled looking eucalypts, placing the cottage in a very private enchanted forest setting. The Dunes Homestead is our premium accommodation option at Cape Otway Cottages and accommodates up to 8 guests. The Dunes is set at the very top of the property and offers unparalleled 180 degree views of the Otways and the Aire River valley. See wedge-tailed eagles hover outside the huge picture windows or relax on the deck and admire the sunset over the Aire River sand dunes. A secluded and sheltered courtyard features beautiful sandstone walls and a lovely cottage garden, whilst spacious decking spans the entire front of the house, with outdoor furniture to relax and admire the view. Secluded hilltop location, spectacular 180 degree Otway views Beautiful Grampians sandstone walls, fireplace and courtyard Soaring triangular ceiling, huge living space/picture windows Double-fronted fireplace, RC air-conditioning/heating Large semi-commercial kitchen with Miele dishwasher, commercial espresso machine, coolroom, freezer Master bedroom with King bed, open fireplace, large corner Spa, WIR and ensuite double shower Second bedroom has King bed or Twin share Fully self-contained Private Studio with King bed, Spa, Kitchen Total three King bedrooms, three bathrooms, two spas, two kitchens Also Queen sofa bed in Living area Flatscreen TV with full Foxtel TV and satellite Free-to-air TV ... more   less
