Recently refurbished 3br cottage that sleep 6 only a 2 minute drive to the iconic Bells Beach. 10 minutes from Torquay and Anglesea. Surrounded by some of the best bush walks in Victoria. Perfect base to explore the Great Ocean Road.

The space

Country meets Coast.. You have the comfort of a b&b but the privacy of your own house. Big open fire in winter for those cold nights and some of the best beaches down the road. A breakfast hamper is supplied on arrival and the house has all the basic condiments you would have at home e.g. salt and pepper, mustards, sauces, breakfast spreads, sugar, oil (olive and coconut), glad wrap, foil etc. Shampoo, conditioner and body wash.

There is also onsite hire of wetsuits and surfboards, if interested please mention when confirming your booking.

Guest access

Guests have access to their own laundry, deck, house and surrounds.

Interaction with guests

I will always try to greet guests when they arrive but the cottage is self contained, we are down the end of the driveway out of sight. We are always there for any needs our guests may have.

Other things to note

Cosy and relaxing property, had a wonderful stay worth at Charlotte's place. Charlotte was there for our every need and responded almost instantly. Place itself was super clean and bathrooms were also spotless. We were greeted with gorgeous fireplace and light breakfast. We were cold during a night so she even brought us new blankets the next morning. Have to point out that not a lot of places allow 2 big dogs but Charlotte had no issues and welcomed our dogs with lots of pats. Suggest to stay extra nights here coz you don't feel like doingany touristy stuff when you stay here! 5 stars!!

Thank you Charlotte and family - we had a very relaxing stay, just what we needed. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch and sitting by that big open fire was a perfect way to spend the weekend. Brian walked the dog all the way to Bells Beach and back too, he was wishing he had bought his bike :) Hopefully we can stay again sometime.

Charlotte's house was spacious, bright, well provisioned, so very, very peaceful and we really enjoyed our stay there. It's surrounded by beautiful bush land which was fun to explore with our dog and teaming with wildlife. It's also close enough to Jan Juc, Torquay and lots of beaches do we didn't feel completely isolated either.

We loved our stay at Charlotte's! So incredibly peaceful; the setting is wonderful. Waking up to the kangaroos and watching them at dusk as we drank wine on the deck was one of the highlights of my last 6 months in Australia. The house is lovely and a really good place to be with a baby- he loved it! Charlotte was very welcoming leaving lots of goodies for us to feast on! Location is superb too, some really fabulous beaches nearby, Addiscot beach one of the loveliest for families while Bells doesn't need any intro for it's surf. Thanks Charlotte.

Bells Retreat is an incredible place to stay and I highly recommend if you are looking for a beautiful accommodation in the Bells Beach / Torquay area. Charlotte is absolutely lovely, genuine, thoughtful and a very accommodating host. The house was immaculate and the fridge/pantry stocked full of goodies, including gluten free goodies for my partner :) Charlotte went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed to make our stay relaxing, including giving directions to Point Addis for some hiking/beach time and how to get to the local running trails from her property. We made good use of the BBQ on the deck and enjoyed watching the kangaroos, cockatoos, rabbits and rosellas go about their daily meanderings. There is a ping pong table downstairs (I am the ping pong champion of this visit!) and a laundry too where you can store your beach stuff which came in handy. Thanks again Charlotte, we will definitely be back during the winter to make good use of the fireplace and hopefully get some surfing in!

Bells retreat is a great place to spend time. Charlotte and Adam are close at hand (without invading any privacy) and were brilliant communicators, generous fridge fillers, and I'm sure if there was a need to would have resolved any problems. The accommodation is just like the pictures. Although there are a few extra benefits that need to be considered: Outside the house there is a small pond with two little islands. One even had a stone bridge to get onto it. Our boys spent hours on this - as it was a really great way to get stuck into country living for suburban boys. At the end of the road, there is a wonderful walk / cycle track that goes in both directions for miles. This was pretty whilst also being rugged and offering sitings of kangaroos. The track is something I would love to have spent a few hours cycling on myself, but was tame enough for me to take my 7 year old boy on too. nb. make sure to look at the signs for each track before you cycle down as some do lead to cliff edges. All in all a great place to stay. Highly recommended.
