Coastal cool for two. Our little one bedroom beach house is 100 steps to the water. Its sunny north wall ( that's right..wall ) slides open to bring the outside in. There are decks, a sea view and the sound of the waves. Village a ten minute stroll.
We have always loved little beach houses, so we decided to build one. Of course, it is obligatory for a beach house to have a beach.....ours is opposite. You will find comfortable accommodation for one or two people in our new, open plan, little house. We like that the architect included a sliding wall that can open the living area to the outside deck on sunny days. We also like that we can batten down the hatches in winter and turn on the log fire. The bedroom has its own little deck too, just because..... There is plenty of cooking equipment. Yes, wine glasses, coffee and teas included. All linen is provided.
Apollo Bay sits at the foot of the Otway Ranges, by the Southern Ocean. It is a sea change kind of place with real live locals. Find them fishing, playing golf or footy, walking in the national parks, surfing, swimming, and at the Saturday market.
  • This place was one of the best AirBNBs we’ve stayed at. We felt right at home the second we arrived. Amazing location, amazing kitchen, super cosy couch after a day of hiking or beaching. My wife and I enjoyed playing a few card games by the fire, enjoyed a bottle of wine or two, and loved the cozy couch and sounds of the waves crashing along the shore as we sleep. I would highly recommend this place.

  • This is a wonderfully designed, modern and thoughtful home from which to explore Apollo Bay and the Ocean Road. The bedroom is very comfortable and restful. We enjoyed it very much.

    Doug2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We’ve stayed here before and love it! The space is so stylish and well appointed and exactly what we need. The location is great too. It’s close to the beach and the beautiful farmland behind Apollo Bay and only a short drive to see the koalas. And nothing beats falling asleep to the sound of the waves! We’ll definitely be back again.

    Brendan2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Just “outstanding” We could spend the whole summer here. The Little Beach House is just “outstanding” nice. We have never lived more beautifully in Victoria. A big compliment to Rex (and a little to his architects). Modern living is perfectly implemented here. The house is light, airy, and extremely well thought out. Nothing is missing. The location is just great too. A few steps to the beach and a short walk to all restaurants or the supermarket. The car can stop here. We were also surprised by Apollo Bay and the varied surroundings. There is a lot to experience and discover in the immediate vicinity. Of course, we also tried out all the tips from the host. The restaurants are great, the shopping is great. Fresh fish is available at fair prices in the cooperative. Nothing is missing in the kitchen to prepare it perfectly. There is even a whetstone to sharpen the knives. Thank you for letting us live here. We would love to come back.

    Tom2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place, more than big enough for 2 people. Close enough to walk to Apollo Bay shops but not so close as to be busy. Great amenities provided.

  • David was a lovely host, we really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back one day. Everything was spotless clean and well looked after, amazing location.

    Ronja2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • David was a great host during our two day stay just outside Apollo Bay. This homestay is located amongst estate size dwellings. The apartment backs into a huge backyard. Since David lives in the adjoining larger home, he is available to assist with anything that may come up. He was very warm and helpful, a true Superhost. It's on the second floor, so there is a staircase to climb, but the views are great.

    Dale2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful clean and tidy place to stay near appolo bay. David was a great host.

It opens into a charming little garden with heaps of native birds in the garden. Kitchen and bathroom were awesome. Had a lovely relaxing stay.

    Ramon2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • For a stop in Apollo Bay, this is a wonderful place to stay. Very comfortable and spacious for a studio. The bathroom has radiant heat which is a lovely touch. The location is great, a few steps from town though private and quiet. You can see ocean from the patio. Lisa made everything easy for us.

    Cari2020-02-28T00:00:00Z

  • The beach hut provides a high standard of comfort in a central location. Safe parking is provided and full facilities are available for cooking. Very well presented. I would definitely stay here again. Lisa is very good to communicate with, clear and informative.

    Martin2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • This was a lovely little studio flat to stay in for a few days. Wonderful location and very helpful hosts. The bed was very hard, and it was a bit disappointing we couldn’t get the chrome cast to work since it was rainy throughout our whole trip so tv would have been nice! Otherwise, it was great - I especially loved the heated floors in the bathroom!

  • Great space with amazing views. Perfect for couples, short walk to the beach, the general store and the pub. Very comfortable space, great bed and the bath has a perfect vantage point. The view is spectacular and we never got over it.

    Bernie2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely breathtaking views and incredibly luxurious house. The bath, deck and fireplace were a few of the highlights. The owner did seem to have issue with people coming and going, which was uncomfortable as it was our wedding. However, we couldn't fault the property and would stay again.

    Jordan2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • The most amazing property, can’t fault it the views are outstanding didn’t want to leave. It seems to be owned and run by a ghost though as there was zero communication.

    Louise2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing views, made our weekend extra special! Thanks for creating a wonderful space

    Dan2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Private, quiet and picturesque. Saw kangaroos, koalas, stingrays, dolphins and parakeets regularly over the four days. Gardens were being updated and a new private beach track added to the qtmosphere. We met the owners who were lovely and keen to make our stay enjoyable. We will be back next year.

    Janette2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing for a couples get away. The view is second to none. The space inside was perfect for what we were after on the final leg of our trip. Being the final leg and with million dollar views we were looking forward to soaking up the views from the balcony but unfortunately the pictures weren’t accurate at all, there were 2 plastic chairs and a small table big enough for a couple of drinks and an ash tray. Also the renovation next door cutting timber was a bit of a drag but overall this place is mint. The general store is great, as is the pub. The wildlife was awesome ( koalas, cockatoos, many bird species)We would recommend this place anytime. Hopefully the seating becomes a bit more fitting of the location soon. Todd

    Todd2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • What a special place. Amazing views. A great space to read, relax and enjoy the water and wildlife views.

    Kelly2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • That view is as good as it gets! Simply stunning private home that we did not want to leave during our stay. The brand new bathroom renovation was beautiful and modern. Bluetooth speaker and strong WiFi were also appreciated. Tons of wildlife around the property, and we even saw a koala in a tree right next to the house (we aren’t from Australia, so this was a real treat for us)! Amazing space, and highly recommend, you will definitely not regret staying here! We hope to return here again!

    If you've come to enjoy Great Ocean Road and the Otways, but haven't yet stayed with us, you haven't experienced it all! Welcome to the EcoPod at The Source, Otways. Rest, create, reconnect with yourself, your beloved and pristine nature, here on this privately held land. Enjoy the simplicity and cosiness of this little abode, as you explore the magic of the spectacular ancient rainforest, crystal clear waterfalls and secluded grotto that comes alive with glow worms at night. Adventures await!
    Not up for camping, but still want the adventure of the great outdoors? The EcoPod at The Source, Owtays is a totally unique experience that brings back the feeling of connection with nature, whilst enjoying the comforts and cosiness of a gorgeous little abode. If you're after solitude or some intimacy with your beloved, this private little nest in the beauty and wonder of spectacular rainforest and waterfalls will kindle ample inspiration, invoke peace, tranquillity and rustic romance. Enjoy the simplicity of a log fire in your own fire pit, the big starry night skies outside, an adventure to the grotto for night time glow worms or simply listening to the song of wind and rain as you gaze out of your EcoPod window. On arrival, as you come through the gate up the treelined driveway, look out for Barry, the resident Koala, and the cows on the nearby paddock, who curiously greet the visitors. You'll be able to drive past the Homestead and Cottage, right up and park your car next to your EcoPod, for easy unpacking. Your EcoPod is your little abode in the great expanse of The Source, Otways, where you can reconnect with yourself, your beloved person or craft, and nature. The EcoPod is the blend of cosiness and comfort with minimalist simplicity, for a relaxed, quirky and memorable stay. Smaller than a “tiny house”, this little abode comfortably sleeps two people on a cushy mattress, leaving enough space for your overnight necessities. BYO pillow and sleeping bag, or request full bedding for a bit of luxury (extra charges apply). There is a little solar powered light for your night time reading, and even a USB port to charge your phone, although our philosophy is "Less Screen, More Green" and we invite our guest to "disconnect to reconnect". Your little sanctuary has an in-ground fire pit, and your stay includes firewood and kindling so you can cosy up to the log fire in the evening or boil your billy tea. There is no toilet or shower, so you will need to be fully self-sufficient for your toiletting needs (BYO portaloo or similar), bring your own water and leave no trace upon your departure. This pristine land is precious, and we open it to very few guests, who can be mindful in keeping it this way. Come explore the magic of The Source, Otways!
    Tanybryn is a small but very connected community along Skenes Creek Road (C119), connecting Forrest (and Colac) and the Great Ocean Road. You will not really see any neighbouring properties and feel like you are in country homestead, away from it all. You will be only 15min drive to the beach at Skenes Creek and the famous Otways Fly Treetop Adventure is about 35min away, whilst the Twelve Apostles are 1hr 15min away. For shops, cafes, restaurants entertainment both Forrest and Apollo Bay are ~20 min drive.
  • Great little place and the property is amazing.

  • Amazing getaway

    Lucas2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • It was such an incredible visit - a lovely break in nature after lots of driving on the great ocean road. The whole property and the tracks created are an absolute treat. We went for a walk and saw no one for hours, which felt like a wave of fresh air during the busy holiday season. Thank you Vita, we will definitely be adding your place to our list for the next time we visit Victoria.

    Naima2019-12-27T00:00:00Z

    Daniela2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely, peaceful place, ideally located for exploring the Otways. The grounds were larger and the view even better than the photos suggest. The house was tastefully decorated, with a well-equipped kitchen, and very comfortable. The welcome pack was a nice touch. Mikhala was very accommodating. Highly recommended.

  • We had a great staying, beautiful quiet place surrounded by nature. Very private and secluded. The perfect place if you are looking at just relaxing and spend a few days away from everything. Still only half hour away from Apollo Bay makes it not too isolated in case you need some supplies

    Cristian2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Ollie's Cottage was more than what we expected! Pictures of the ocean view, does not do it justice! We fell in love with the view, as soon as we arrived, we just sat on the chairs on the deck and took it all in! It had a big backyard for the puppies to run around and play. The cottage contained everything needed for a few day's stay. It was very clean and nicely decorated. Our bed was so comfortable that we couldn't get ourselves up in the mornings. Would definitely stay again!

    Samuel2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Otway Nest is situated in a beautiful location, the bird life is amazing and the accommodation is very comfortable. After an early start to our day we were very grateful for the lovely hot shower and very comfy bed. There is so much to see and do in this area. One day we will return and stay for longer.

    Heather2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • A delightful large bedroom with brand new kitchenette and en-suite, tucked away on a beautiful country-style property amongst the trees. The bed and shower were excellent. It’s a little way out of the main town (down a windy road), but that’s not a problem so long as you don’t need to nick down to the shops. Laurence left us homemade bread and yoghurt, which was delicious, as well as some hiking tips. Generous hospitality and a lovely home. Thanks Laurence.

    Sarah2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • The setting was so beautiful and the place is perfect and romantic. The personal touches to the room, including the jams and home made bread was great! The bed was so comfortable! We would definitely recommend anyone to stay. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Come to Apollo Bay and stay here!

    Apollo Bay, VIC, Australia

    Long Tide retreat is a beautiful property, set amongst the trees with breathtaking ocean and forest views. Natural beauty and vast expanse merges with an earthy and tranquil barn style guest house. A truly magical space to rest and retreat from the world.
    We are the last property at the end of the street, making for an incredibly tranquil setting. Our stunning property sits at the very end of a 1.5km dirt road, with breathtaking ocean views at the end of our quiet street. We are a gorgeous 10 minutes drive to Skenes Creek Beach, 15 minutes drive to Apollo Bay township & beaches, 60 minutes from Lorne and 25 minutes from the super cute inland town of Forrest. Our property exists within a generous opening amongst the surrounding forest. Our house and the guest house sit separately, 50 or so metres apart, giving you your very own space, but we are here (or not too far away!) if you need us. We are very happy to give you complete privacy and we are also available should you need anything as we live “next door”. The guest house is a unique 2 story + mezzanine barn style house, crafted naturally out of local and recycled timber. It has great energy with a wonderful, cozy, rustic feel. No traffic noise, no other houses nearby, just ours. The accommodation itself is natural, earthy, warm and very comfortable. The building was built chemical free and is so unique with its natural and recycled timbers and textures. The guest house comes with a very spacious living area complete with a luxurious fire place, air conditioning/heating split system; giving you comfortable temperature control no matter what the Otway forest delivers weather wise. The living area upstairs has two comfy couches to spread out on, a big arm chair and a cozy papasan chair in the reading nook. THERE IS NO GUEST WIFI AT LONG TIDE RETREAT as where we live is difficult and unreliable to service with a WIFI connection... but have no fear! We've made up for the lack of WIFI with other fabulous things.... We have heaps of books, magazines, a cupboard full of board games, drawing supplies and puzzles. There is a TV with regular regional TV channels and a blueray DVD player for any movies you may want to watch (current count is 150+ of our favourites on DVD). You can also bring a hard drive to plug into the DVD player to watch your own movies. There's also a Sony portable Bluetooth speaker for you to play your favourite music or podcast. You can access the internet with your smart phone or tablet via your own standard mobile data. The fireplace is magnificent when it's cold outside, and we will provide all the fire wood you need to keep you warm and cosy. Firewood and kindling are located in the downstairs carport and you are free to use what you need during your stay. When the storms roll in, there is nothing better than curling up on the couch by the fire with a book and a cup of tea. Please help yourself to kindling and firewood from the carport downstairs when required. For your convenience the split system AC unit provides instant heat at the touch of a button, to keep you warm before you get the fire going. Adjoining the living space we have a quaint, clean and functional kitchen completely set up with everything you need. Kitchen staples including oil, butter, margarine, salt + pepper, cow's milk, soy milk and almond milk, lots of herbs and spices and some non perishable items in the cupboard are available. If it's in the kitchen, you're free to use it. The fridge/freezer, gas oven, gas cook top and microwave are all high quality updated appliances helping to make it easy to stay in and retreat. There's plenty of inside and outside dining space, perfect for exhaling for a short or long stay. We have a BBQ on the deck ready for you to use while soaking up the summer sunshine. BEDROOM 1: is equipped with a king bed, with a large wardrobe space and bright, north facing window out to the garden. BEDROOM 2: has a queen sized bed and is found in the upstairs mezzanine which is accessed via the attic ladder. The roof height is around 170cm at it's peak and pitches down either side, so it's cosy, but be sure to watch your head if you're tall. The roof window comes complete with block out blind, and easily opens right out to catch the breeze. You can also view the sun or moon rise to the east, or open to gaze at that wonderful starry sky on a clear night. Beds are supplied with quality linen and beautiful natural soft goose down doonas. All towels are also supplied, dried in our solar power drier making them soft and fluffy. The downstairs full bathroom is large, bright and luxurious, it blends a beautiful polished concrete floor with the natural textured timber walls and ceiling. It has a large shower complete with an amazing huge waterfall shower head. There is a gorgeous enamel claw foot bath, which can be enjoyed day or night, whilst watching the bird life in the neighbouring forest, or the stars on a clear night. There is a second toilet and sink upstairs also for those middle of the night trips. Stepping out upstairs you will find the spacious viewing deck extending directly outside from the living space. It comes complete with big table, chairs and a BBQ. It's from here you will want to do some koala and bird watching or take in the sounds, smells, and sights of the forest and ocean. In our kitchen we offer complimentary coffee beans ready to grind fresh and a selection of 10 beautiful organic teas. Occasionally we will have eggs to share from our chickens, bring your own just in case! Many native animals live in this space with us. Koalas regularly visit as do wallabies, kangaroos and echidnas. The bird life is phenomenal, and incredible to listen to at first light or dusk, especially when the kookaburras start laughing. Oh, and the owls! You might get a glimpse of our resident Powerful Owl or the Boobook. Our favourite part of day is that dreaminess of sunset, where the sky is often ablaze with intense colours that fill the atmosphere. The elevation expands the horizon in a way that really opens up the sky. On a clear night the sky is truly something you have to witness. With no light pollution, the stars will literally take your breath away. It is a totally different sky to anything you will see in the city or with lights around. If you aren't feeling like heading to the beach, just stay in for a glass of wine on the deck or in front of the fire, or why not do some star gazing out the window from the deep claw foot bath? From the luxury of the pillow top beds to the organic tea and coffee on offer, we have created this space for you to stop and really sink in and relax. Give yourself permission to do nothing! On our side of the fence we have 3 chocolate labradors. Freckles the eldest, Frankie the middle and Phoenix the youngest, who is Frankie's daughter. They are wonderful and love any opportunity to meet people. Phoenix likes to bark when someone arrives to let everyone know someone is here, but she is adorable, friendly and will always respect your space. We have a chicken coop with 11 girls laying eggs most days and a bee hive that helps pollenate our growing fruit tree orchard. Dale runs his Osteopathic clinic by appointment from the downstairs portion of the barn on Wednesday-Saturday. Patients will come and go on those days from the separate space underneath the barn. The treatment room is totally separate from the accommodation. If you'd like to chat to Dale about Osteopathy please get in touch.
    Skenes Creek North is a semi rural but mostly forest coastal landscape. To give you an example we have about 4 acres of cleared space and the rest is natural bush. Our neighbours are similar, some have a little more cleared space for orchards and grazing animals. We are about 400 metres above sea level. As such we are often above the sea mist in summer, and can also be right in the cloud mist in winter. It's magical. Skenes creek itself is in front of us and is a beautiful picturesque town ship on the edge of Apollo Bay. The town itself is just houses and a beach, with the exception of a caravan park, which sells newpapers, coffee, and milk. The area is pristine national park as part of the Otway Ranges National Park and an endless number of beaches that extend in both directions along the great ocean road. It is a natural paradise and is so fun to explore in either direction, including inland where you will find old growth forest, waterfalls, and some tourist attractions such as the Otway treetop walk and redwood forest. The township of Forrest is a haven for nature lovers, in particular moutain bikers due to its extensive range of trails. It also has a wonderful local brewery, an equally cool general store and is also the home of a boutique chocolate shop.
  • Great relaxing stay in a beautiful part of Victoria. All the small touches to make a peaceful weekend away. Will come back!

  • Our long weekend at Long Tide was incredible! 5 stars for everything - absolutely beautiful location, stunning house, very comfy bed, cosy fireplace, lots of info about things to do in the area. Jackie and Dale were super friendly and helpful when we saw them, but the place is also separate and private so we felt like we also had our own space. They also had one of the best tea collections I've seen! Very much hoping to be back one day :)

    Katie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Jackie and Dale provide an amazing space to get away and experience nature in one of the most amazing places in the world. The property was dreamy, and the surrounding nature was stunning. We were lucky enough to watch a storm roll in over the ocean, it was like a scene from a fantasy movie. The cabin itself was so beautiful and cozy. It was filled with thoughtful little touches, such as a large selection of gourmet teas, a fireplace, books, amongst many other things. Jackie and Dale (as well as Freckles, Pheonix and Frankie) were lovely and genuinely made us feel welcome, giving us a tour of the property and offering some great recommendations in regards to local activities and dining. Thank you again for an amazing experience and we cannot wait to visit again.

  • The hosts were delightful

    Devasena2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a fantastic stay at Dianne & Gwyn's farm stay. The bird watching and roaring fire when we arrived were definite highlights! Cosy cottage with a lovely view even in misty weather. Gwyn was also kind enough to show us the local glow worms, such a great experience to see them! Can't wait to stay up in the Otways again.

    Julia2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great, Great and great I don't know how I have to explain that😊😉

    یاس2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Our best airbnb! This place is wonderful! The magnificent landscape and the owner take care of you: stroll in the fields to get to know the cows, night visit to the fireflies and the seeds available to feed the birds. The kids loved it! The fire was already lit when we arrived, what was it nice! I recommend this place for families!

    Amandine2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location, fantastic hosts! Gwyn and Dianne’s quaint and homely cottage, tucked away in the bush land near Apollo Bay is an ideal escape. Bird life everywhere (the king parrots were a big hit) and everything you need to keep comfortable. Gwyn was great with local tips and advice, he even took us out at night to show us the glow worms! Highly recommended!

    Tony2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Quaint but comfortable. A lovely cabin in the ranges, 20 minutes from Apollo Bay. Dianne and Gwyn are lovely.

    Kelly And Patrick2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • A cosy little cottage in the hills with great opportunities to see and hear local wildlife, particularly birds. Gwyn and Dianne has great local knowledge and recommendations, we ended up in an interesting cafe with lots of historical photos thanks to their advice. Well placed to visit the Great Ocean Road sites as well as inland areas.

    Katie2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • We chose this place for its outstanding location and beautiful gardens and we were not disappointed. We were allowed to roam the property and took the time to enjoy the splendid nature. King parrots fly to the deck in the afternoon / evening and will even feed from your hand. The hosts were so friendly and showed us their garden and took us (we have a nearly 2 yo) around the farm to feed the cows. We had such an amazing time here and were sad to leave! Highly recommend and would rate 6 stars if possible!! Thank you again.

  • This cottage was perfect for our trip to the Otways. All the amenities were perfect for two people, and the fire place was very welcome on the cold nights. It is a very cosy space which is furnished comfortably to make it very relaxing. The kitchen is well equipped and very usable. The dishwasher was a big bonus, as was the coffee machine, and we were provided with everything we needed in the way of utensils and crockery. The view from the cottage was lovely (you can see the ocean and watch ducks in the dam), and it was positioned on the property in a way that made us feel very secluded and private. I highly recommend this as the place to stay when visiting the area.

    Angus2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place is so extraordinary. We loved it and would definitely recommend. There’s a fair bit of self cleaning required given a $100 cleaning fee is charged. Otherwise I can’t speak highly enough of the place and will be back.

    Moir2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very lovely and super cosy. Was perfect for the 3 of us. Gorgeous property.

    Duncan2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome property and super cute place to stay. Perfect spot for a relaxing getaway.

    Ryan2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • The privacy and greenery of this place was absolutely what we needed. You look out onto a maintained grassed area and there are birds and other animals there just going about their day. The sunrise was magnificent and you look into the distance thinking you are seeing mountains. Some of the mountains are actually just the vast ocean. I can’t describe how peaceful I felt after having left this place. Make sure to take ground coffee and not just beans for the machine!l because there is no grinder!

    Mariam2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • An incredible location. Wish I could live there! All the amenities you need. Highly recommended

    Jordan2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful cottage set up to relax in. Sitting by the fire, looking out on the beautiful countryside there was no lack of nature to keep us entertained. A perfect blend of comfort and modern decor set against the rustic wilderness. A seamless check in process and such a great location to explore walks, beaches and lookouts.

    Samantha2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Sassy's Dream. The location was stunning and the space was very sweet, it was clear the host has an eye for detail. The floor to ceiling windows really make you to feel close to nature, while enjoying the warmth and comfort form the little fireplace. We also loved our time on the mountain bikes in Forrest, it was such a beautiful place, and the Forrest brewery was a great place to stop for a meal. Thanks again :)

    We have only the one cottage on a 10 acre property. It is secluded from our residence, including its own separate driveway. All you will see is the garden, the surrounding forest and the ocean.
  • Such a gorgeous private cottage with beautiful views! We loved our little get away in the Otways. Wild, windy, woolly and beautiful! The Morsø pot belly was a blessing with the unpredictable weather in the Otways! Thank you Rick for offering such a special hideaway in the hills.

    Kristina2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • The place was Beautiful , it was quiet and peaceful . Good for a break away from the bustling city . During the drive up we could see wildlife moving about , which was cool . Rick was a great host , great communication , and gave us a detailed tour around the home .

    Samuel Oliver2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I had such a nice stay here. Amazing views over Apollo bay, saw a koala and a kangaroo on the property! Rick was super helpful throughout the stay, with speedy replies and even started the fire for us. Simple check in and check out. Couldn’t be happier! Thanks again Rick.

    Kate2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Rick’s accomodation was perfect, incredibly beautiful and romantic. His recommendations of the area were so helpful. The space was stunning with beautiful views of the ocean. Everything was super accommodating. I would highly recommend his rental to everyone. I will definitely be coming back to stay with Rick again. Thank you for such a lovely time and allowing me to stay at your beautiful place :)

    Win2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • This hide way accommodation is outstanding. Rick has put in a lot of effort to make it perfect for guests. There is not much more you really need when you are on a weekend getaway. The peacefulness is divine. The birds, spectacular. This property has everything you need. As stated, there is no wifi but connect with nature.

    Hayley & Phil2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Rick's place is like a secret hideout amongst the enchanted garden. The drive up there is so scenic, offering many vantage point of the seaview. The place is private and we have many visitors (wildlife) on the deck! Plentiful of space. So cosy, private & quiet for a getaway from the city! Love the fireplace so much. The seaview is superb on the deck, kitchen, living room & I can't wait for my next trip there.

    Elaine2019-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Bed on Beatie is truly a place like no other and was a highlight of our Great Ocean Rd trip! Rick’s cottage was spot clean and very cozy, especially with the fireplace ready to go for the colder autumn and winter nights. Lots of wildlife around if you keep an eye out, such as wallabies and kookaburras. Would recommend staying here for weekends away or as central stay for a Great Ocean Rd trip!

    Freddie2019-04-07T00:00:00Z

    In a part of the world known for its gorgeous views - this Mini Apartment has one of the best views you are likely to find in the area, especially from the upstairs bedroom. Its sitting area below doesn't miss out! with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout! Even the bathroom overlooks the ocean. Checkout our sign-photo for additional contact info.
    A Room with a View B&B which has been operating professionally for over 20 years, is near Apollo Bay. It is a boutique bed and breakfast that is designed primarily for couples and is not suitable for children under the age of 10yrs old. We offer stunning vistas in a tranquil setting. Birdlife abounds and koalas are regular visitors. Our 2 story suite has the bedroom exclusively upstairs. The sitting area with a basic kitchenette & bathroom with spa are on the ground floor. The bedroom has a split King bed which can convert to twin beds on advance request We are centrally located in the Otways within easy reach of many coastal delights and the wonderful hinterland which offers beautiful rainforest walks as well as culinary delights on the Otway Harvest Trail. If this accommodation is not available on the dates you require do not hesitate in considering one of our studios - also listed on airbnb and elsewhere- they have similar features and are slightly cheaper but are by no means a compromise. As our name indicates -the view is amazing regardless which style of accommodation you choose here. But don't just believe us- check out a host of reviews to be found on a number of sites on the web. Some years ago the RACV asked its members to vote for the Top 101 places to stay in Victoria and we were voted in 14th place. While the view is spectacular the wifi isn't. NBN will not be experienced here in our lifetime :( Phone reception is available but can be irregular at times dependent on your phone & carrier. A selection of cereals, tea & coffee etc are complimentary and in your kitchenette however breakfast delivery of something more substantial is available at an additional cost.
    Wongarra was initially a farming community which has seen many of these farms subdivided and sold to people like ourselves wanting to escape the hectic life of a city (Melb). This beautiful rural area still has tracts of forested areas within and backs onto the Otway National Park and fronts onto the Great Ocean Road and overlooks the Southern Ocean. It is a beautiful area rich in wildlife however there are no shops or eateries here. A trip into Apollo Bay 14kms away is the closest option. Casalingo in Moore Street is a favourite amongst the locals and our guests as well as The Dragon Bay Inn in Hardy Street.
  • Beautiful peaceful location, lovely space, great home-cooked breakfast :)

    Sally2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • A room with a view was a beautiful stay. The place was sparkling clean and Angelika was a great host. The view was abosolulty breath taking. I wish I could wake up every morning to this.

I would highly recommend this beautiful spot for your getaway

  • Absolutely stunning! The photos don’t do the view or the place justice! Great facilities and easy check in, having nature so close is an added bonus. Have recommended others to stay, which says it all.

    Gavin2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice house, stylisch, modern well maintained and very clean. Located in a beautiful hillside with stunning view including a small view of the bay. Ray was extremely nice, gave us a warm welcome including a small guided tour to a nearby tree with koalas. In addition we enjoyed a lot feeding the colorful parrots on our porch with the seeds Ray provided! A perfect stay!

    Raimund2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing views and location

    Karly2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very comfortable modern country hideout in excellent condition and with all amenities handy. Definitely recommend it.

    Stuart2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very special villa. It is situated on a hill about 5 minutes from town surrounded by gum trees, colourful birds and koalas. It is exceptionally clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The views for the balconies are superb. Ray is a great host who goes out if his way to ensure you make the most of your stay in this lovely area. Very highly recommended.

    James2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay here, despite the variable weather. Ray came by as soon as we had a question regarding the TV setup. His wife even gave us a homemade fruitcake. Ray also took us on a tour to see the koalas in the nearby trees. Really nice people who made our stay quite special.

    The view is amazing! The tranquillity restorative, the birdlife a joy.... & this is only the beginning. Soak in a hot spa bath, indulge with some freshly baked chocolate croissants & don't forget to check out the night sky! See our sign for contact-info if you need more information
    A Room with a View B&B at Wongarra which has been operating professionally for over 20 years and is near Apollo Bay which is 14kms to the west. It is a Boutique bed and breakfast that offers stunning vistas in a tranquil setting and the indulgence of optional breakfast delivery to your room. Birdlife abounds and koalas are regular visitors. (NB: We display photos of both our studios on each of our two studio listings as we need to retain flexibility in how these rooms are allocated, hence we cannot guarantee which studio will be available on the day however we try where possible to allocate according to your preference ). What is consistent with all rooms is that there is access to an amazing view, with your own sitting area (indoors and outdoors) and an ensuite bathroom with spa. The eastern studio has a larger spa and only a handheld shower off the hob, the western studio has the wallmounted shower over a smaller spa as shown in our photos. When given a choice of rooms our guests really struggle to decide - it is an even split. We are centrally located in the Otways within easy reach of many coastal delights and the wonderful hinterland which offers beautiful rainforest walks as well as culinary delights on the Otway Harvest Trail.
    Unspoilt view of a huge ocean expanse which is framed by a picturesque, sweeping valley. Only 2.8kms up from the great ocean road and not far from Apollo bay (14kms) for cafes, shops and restaurants aplenty and 2 supermarkets. Our property is home for our alpacas, Paco, Rinaldo and Herman and old dog Sabi. And a vast constantly visited by a vast array of wildlife
  • Great stay with amazing view of rolling hills and the ocean. Very private and exceptionally clean rooms.

    Matthias2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most incredible weekend at Angelika’s BnB. The room and THE VIEW were amazing, check in was a breeze and YOU MUST order the breakfast. Homemade warm croissants in the morning on the balcony were a literal dream!

    Larissa2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect place to rest and rejuvenate body, mind and soul. Food is exceptionally good. Angelika and Gary made us welcome and answered questions about the area. If you only have a short break make it happen here.

The room was stylish, warm and very cozy, adding a luxurious feel after a long day adventuring in the surrounding forests/waterfalls which are close by, which were also recommended by Hannah after dining at the pub down the road which does great meals. Would definitely stay here again (excited to find an excuse to do so).

    Perched on the top of the hill, this home will make you feel like you could be anywhere else in the world. Until you see our resident koala Edward. The Ocean Views are breathtaking and the 360 degree surrounding Otway rainforest of this 145 acre property. The house has everything you need to be luxuriously comfortable, full kitchen, dishwasher, coffee and tea, washing machine and dryer, tv and BBQ and all bedding and towels is provided - along with body wash etc and toilet paper. Free wifi
    The whole house, including guest house and 145 acres is your space. Most of this property is rain forest bush. Where you can go bush walking. Watch out for wild life. such as koalas, kookaburras, wallabies, kangaroos, rabbits, king parrots. And avoid bush areas with long grass. Gum boots and long pants are best if you go exploring in the forest. See also the Great Ocean Road touring map Also follow us on Instagram @luxuryhilltopskenes
    The house is 3km from the beach and 10 minutes drive from Apollo Bay Main Street shops. The shops and restaurants in Apollo Bay are really enjoyable. There is also two supermarkets to buy supplies.
  • The house is absolutely stylish and cozy. We had 6 people to stay and we're able to enjoy the spacious living room together. The kitchen was well equipped and handy to make our breakfast. Its so private that on the top of the mountain but supermarket was just 15 min drive away from there. Vanessa was quick and kind to respond. So grateful to have stayed at this beautiful house.

    Fabian2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • A very special experience, integrated into the forest. The design of the house is very ingenious. There is space for children to play, and there is space for adults to drink tea and chat. I like it very much. We saw sheep, kangaroos, koalas, rabbits, and saw the red light of the sunrise in the morning, and waking up with the words of the birds was a great experience.

    小小kelbiQ2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Our staying experience was very good. The room was complete and very convenient. Nice environment and quiet at night. In addition, check-in and check-out are also very convenient. If you choose to stop at Apollo Bay next time, you will still choose this one.
