This is wonderful. Peaceful, calming and comfortable accommodation with unbelievable views. Bryan and Joan have thought of everything.. and more - from the very welcome and thoughtful "Welcome Pack", minibar, toiletries, DVDs, magazines and board games to tips on local attractions and activites. Don't think twice about staying here..just do it and you won't regret it!

Many thanks for your kind review.
At Points South we try to think of everything that one could need when travelling, and next time you visit there will be a coffee machine!

Villa No. 2 So beautiful and private. It really was a perfect place to stay. You would struggle to find a better place to unwind on the Great Ocean Road. Perfect point break "right in front" of the villas. And easy access to the private Beach. Take your surfboard. My only regret. The owners welcoming on our arrival was a nice touch and he showed us where to find the koala's on his property. We found 7 !! Bed is simply stunning and you will not believe the views from your bedroom. Reluctant to tell you all about it in case we cannot get in again next year. 10/10.

Spent two nights in Cottage no 2. If you are looking for a luxurious, private uber romantic getaway -this is it.
Huge king size bed with luxury linen, views and sound of crashing waves below, luxury spa bathroom with heated towel rails, and organic toiletries, Flat screen TV, Sound system, DVD's, Log fire, beach walks, generous "starter pack" with chocolates, cereals, biscuits, juice, window seat with views to die for, birdlife, koalas. This place is heaven on earth.

We stayed at Points South for 3 wonderful days and nights. The cottages were very comfortable, well equipped and absolutely luxurious. The view is second to none and the tranquility of the surroundings is perfect for a real break away from everyday life. Bryan and Joan had no hestitation in making us feel right at home. Our only gripe was that we had to move on! One tip: bring region 4 DVDs as the players are not multi zoned.

I'm not sure there's much to add to the superlatives in the other reviews. Points South was found and booked for us by our son for when we arrived in Melbourne. We had a brilliant three days/two nights there last week. My only small regret is that there are so many sights to see along the Great Ocean Road and inland that we didn't spend enough time at Points South. It is absolutely idyllic, the only sounds being those of the ocean and the birds in the morning. We'll definitely try to stay there again next time we visit Victoria.

Bryan's telephone call soon after arrival was much appreciated, as was the goodies bag.

After arriving in Wongarra after a week long stay in an average Melbourne hotel I was overwhelmed by how beautiful this place is. My children were made very welcome and the goodies bag which was left for us had even considered their needs. The beds are heavenly comfortable, the location second to none. Absolute peace and quiet, we didn't even know anyone else was there. Thanks Joan for being so great to my children showing them the beautiful Bob, Murphy and Bella. Your cottage will have a special place in our holiday to Victoria and we will most certainly be back. A thankyou also to Bryan the whole booking process was super easy. Henri and Amanda, Perth

A lovely private and relaxing hideaway cottage with superb views of the Great Ocean Road and the sea. I hesitate in writing a review as I want to keep this place all to myself!

The cottage is well equipped and has an excellent BBQ. The eucalyptus forest on the property also houses many wild koalas - it's great fun koala spotting. Just pick up some food from Lorne on the way through and hideaway to your hearts content. The general store at Wye also has excellent coffee and food. Treat!
