Fantastic Home hidden gem.
Amazing views and beautiful home. Great bedding and fabulous place to enjoy as a family or group
Despite the weather not being great, my family of 8 adults and 2 small pooches loved our weekend getaway. We thought the house was well appointed and clean with an unbelievable view. A 10 minute drive to the gorgeous Apollo Bay.
For short stays. Some useful information!
I suggest taking the longer ocean view route when traveling to this home because the Forrest short cut is very narrow with many bumps and winding roads along the way . When we were almost at the house the GPS stopped since there is no signal in the area, so I recommend looking at and taking screenshots of the map before hand. The house and views were amazing. However, the curtains to the home do not block people from outside looking in at night but when inside the house we can not see anything out. I'd rather stay somewhere with thicker blinds so that I can have privacy and feel more secure. Although this home looks very far from the beach it's only a 15 minute drive down. We enjoyed using the fire place very much. It kept us warm during our surprisingly cold February visit, as well as the heaters provided. I wished more people mentioned that there was absolutely no signal just so we could be prepared when self occupying. The house had very little supplies such as toilet paper, sugar, coffee, shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc. Especially since we were a group of 5 adults in a four bedroom home containing 5 beds for 5 days/4 nights, the supplies lasted 2 days. We ended up having to buy toilet paper and sugar in bulk. We also ended up eating out every day since the kitchen tools we wanted were not there. If we had known we could've brought stuff from home. Would not suggest staying longer than 3 days.
We are glad you enjoyed the house and the views- we agree pretty amazing! Both ways of getting to the property are very beautiful and completely safe and enjoyable to drive. As per our check in instructions we suggest The Great Ocean Road way- and give clear instructions. The house is very easy to find when you print off these instructions. The property has reception for people with telstra- given the nature of the location, this property is mostly rented by people who are looking for a peaceful escape- wifi/ reception has not been a problem to date. In regards to blinds- they offer adequate privacy and again this has never been an issue, there are actually no neighbors in sight (the beauty of this property!) As mentioned in our check in document we supply the basics to get you started, which is in line with most holiday rental homes. If your staying for an extended period of time or with a large group, most people understand and are happy to stock up themselves along the way. The kitchen is a fully equipped with everything you need as per standard holiday homes (pots/pans/cutlery/cups/bowls etc) Im not sure why you wouldn't have been able to cook? The house is a beautiful relaxing spot for a short stay or long :-) Kind Regards, Maddy
Great place to stay for a large family. Beautiful views from up in the Otways and the grassed area around the house was great for the grandkids to play on. Only downside was the lack of good cooking utensils especially when your staying for a week. An electric frypan and sandwich maker would have been useful and the bbq was very old and difficult to use.
Lovely views of the valley and ocean. Clean and tidy and easy to use.
I would recommend this property for a relaxing secluded stay only a short drive to Apollo Bay.
Quite beautiful location with AMAZING View
Love everything about the house. Clean & spacious. My only comment would be the lack of fencing or protective barrier at the yard - so a little hesitant to leave our kids to run around freely.
Thanks for staying Arnold! Were glad you loved the house :-)
The house is privately tucked away and the road on which the property sits is very quiet! Fencing out the front would impact on those amazing views!! Thanks for the five star review- we look forward to having you stay again :-) Maddy
