“Very nice”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

Really nice accommodation. Very relaxing. Very clean inside. Games room well equipped. The only thing that bothered me was that the screen door was very dirty and first impressions are everything.
Would recommend this accommodation to friends and family.

Thank you for your feedback and we're glad you had a pleasant relaxing stay. The salty environment plays havoc with some of our facilities and we are endeavouring to find a solution for the problem with the discoloration on the screen doors.

We stayed for a friday and saturday night earlier this month. Overall the accomadation was superb, with everything you may require(including a cd incase you forgot music) having been thought of. The kitchen was better equiped than our at home and the view is sooooo relaxing. Only one smal glitch we couldn't get the free wifi in our room that was part of the deal and Wongarra must be in a patchy place for telstra so my mobile internet was no answer either. That said romantic weekends are meant to be technology free anyway. We look forward to staying next time.

Thank you for your great feedback, we are so pleased you had a lovely time. We certainly are a patchy spot for Telstra, especially when it's busy in summer. Great excuse for time out from technology!

We have stayed at Whitecrest on several occasions and can't praise the property enough. We have always arrived after the office has closed but everything has been well organised and we are into our apartment without any fuss. In our mid-winter visit earlier this year the heater was already lit making it a very cosy, warm welcome. We have thoroughly enjoyed just sitting in the lounge room and watching the ocean change with the weather. We have had several walks to the beach nearby which is accessed a short distance from the property. The apartments are very well appointed and we particularly enjoyed the loft bedroom from where we could see and hear the rumble of the sea. I would thoroughly recommend a stop off at this lovely property.

We are really glad you enjoyed your perfect weekend, especially the walks on the beach. Even in winter it's very beautiful here, and always cosy inside with the gas log fires.

We just enjoyed 3 days in one of the studio apartments at Whitecrest. It was peaceful and private, a real treat to drift in and out of sleep to the sound of the ocean. The king tide was amazing, and we also enjoyed the view of the ocean from a comfy bed, laying in a little longer each day as we unwound from the stresses of the city, relaxing into the peace of a very unique country seaside location. The apartment was beautifully clean and decorated with colours that brought the outside in. The gas log fire added to the ambiance in the evening and even though it rained while there we enjoyed the opportunity to snuggle up in such a beautiful and private apartment. Great escape from the rush of the city and nice to be away from towns.

Room Tip: Ask for a bed with a view

We spent a weekend travelling down the Great Ocean Road and when we booked this place, we thought we were in for a treat. However, when we arrived, it was pretty lack luster. They put us in the end unit with only a partial ocean view. There is no beach access. The apartment itself is tired and out dated. The furniture is worn out (the couches sunk in when you sat on them.) The beds were like rocks and the bathroom is in serious need of a face lift. For over $300/night, I was expecting a full view of the ocean and to not have to take out my own garbage (you have to do your own dishes and take out your own rubbish or risk getting charged extra.) We stayed at a another resort/hotel location on the Great Ocean Road, and it was heaven compared to this place and it was cheaper. But what took the cake was the bugs! The screens on the doors were ripped and within 5 minutes the entire house was FILLED with mosquito's. We couldn't even enjoy the sound of the ocean because we had to shut all the doors and windows or risk getting eaten alive. We eventually moved into the living room, shut off all the lights, and tried to trap them in the closet w/ the light on. Miserable stay. Would not stay again or recommend to anyone. There's better options!

Room Tip: If you stay here, avoid unit 1! Ripped screens and only a partial view.

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry your visit didn't meet your expectations, we certainly aim to have happy guests.
I would like to point out that we do have beach access at two points near Whitecrest, maps and directions are in the compendium and in the Reception area.
I am sorry you were bothered by insects last Saturday night, it was a very warm evening and a plague was apparent right across South Western Victoria.
We are continually upgrading the furniture and equipment in all apartments and endeavour to meet high standards, our guests are usually very satisfied.

We stayed for 4 nights in apartment 7
...As we checked in after hours we collected our keys and wow! when we entered the apartment I knew I had made the right choice!!! it was perfect!!
It was everything they promised! lovely views and the rumble of the waves as they hit the near by reefs/shore line was amazing!
The apartment was so clean and so well equipped!!! I loved the birds in the garden singing as we arrived on our first night. the bed was so comfy too!
they really made it feel so homely and we arrived to the gas log heater going for us!

The only downside was when I ran the dryer too hot and it tripped the power circuit (my fault entirely) because it happened outside reception hours we called the other number in the office and no one answered.
this was a little annoying but we still had lights just no appliances.
thankfully the next day they got strait onto it when the reception lady started
There is a cleaning lady but she just services the place sh doesn't actually run it. The lady in reception is very helpful and if there's anything you need to know about the area she knows it!

all up I rate this place very highly an definitely recommend it!!! I can;t wait to go back soon!!!
Thank you so much!

Room Tip: we stayed in apartment 7 it was fantastic!!!! good view of ocean and very comfy bed

We travelled from Melbourne to spend a weekend overnight at Whitecrest. The surrounds were peaceful and the apartment (number 12) had a fantastic private ocean view. The atmosphere was very romantic and our short stay exceed all expectations. Perfect for couples looking for a weekend escape.

Room Tip: The studio apartments have fantastic sea views.
