5/5 Excellent

Nice cosy hideaway down the coast.
This is a delightful house with all the elements of home to make your stay comfortable. The kitchen is great and outlook onto the back garden, restful and great for sea breezes. Neat location near the state park to go walking or appreciate the native birds.

5/5 Excellent

A home away from home
This property was everything we hoped it would be - cosy, comfortable, beautifully clean and with plenty of character. A great yard for the kids and the dog; backyard cricket and a glass of wine on the deck! The toys and books went down a treat and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. We all enjoyed the walk through the Otway National Park - literally across the road. The perfect getaway. Thank-you!

5/5 Excellent

Exceeded Expectations
From the moment we booked until we left we have had our expectations exceeded. Nothing has been an issue, fantastic communication and consideration including having the heating and lights on for our arrival. The photos do not do the house justice as it is prettier and more spacious than we expected. We have stayed in a lot of holiday rentals and this would be one of the best we have have had. The care and attention to detail in having thought of a renters needs was unmatched in our experience. We would definitely stay here again in the future. Thank you for sharing your property with our family.

5/5 Excellent

Weekend Away
