I recently stayed in the Grass Trees Cottage for 10 nights and it was fantastic. It was secluded and very private, there was no people knocking at 9am for house-keeping or noisy neighbours. My 2 dogs loved the property, the bush supplied great exercise for them and they didn't have to be on leash. They were also supplied with a dog bed and dog bowls with a couple of treats each. The spa is the perfect touch after a long day doing nothing. The fire-place would be nice but I could not get it to stay lit (city girl). The kitchen was great, everything that I needed was there, except for normal tongs I couldn't find any. The location of this property is beautiful, 20mins to Apollo Bay, 30mins to Johanna Beach (NOT safe for swimming but is dog friendly year round) and various spots/waterfalls/activities in the Otway National Park. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the best so I was stranded in the cabin for a few days which was fine since there is a TV & DVD player. I never met the manager but all my enquiries were dealt with and replied to within an hour which was nice. I will definitely stay here again and I highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a quiet, secluded place.
Tip: A 4WD would be easier for access to this property
