I was fortunate enough to be given 5 nights at Johanna Seaside Cottages as a present from my parents. It turned out that the only available cottage was the big "farmhouse"... and we loved it!! We had no ocean views at all but we still had the most fantastic stay - just loved picking vegies in the vegie patch and collecting eggs in the morning :)
Everyone was lovely and helpful and the farmhouse was so big - but so clean! Our favourite activity was the walks we went on, trying to spot the koalas.. we did this for hours and found so many. I was 33 back then but felt like a kid, I was so excited. For us it was a really peaceful trip after a stressful few months.. I'll never forget sitting in the living area and reading a book when I looked up and saw a huge herd of cows directly outside the window!
Although it wasn't winter, it was cold when we visited and I just adored having the fire going - it was so cozy and I'd go again when it's cooler because it just felt so good.
Staff were lovely and we hope return soon :)
(PS We actually visited in 2009 but I can't get the pull down menu to suggest options other than 2011)
