Hi Deven, Its great to hear that you enjoyed your stay overall and I appreciate the feedback. We are actually having a shutdown this week which involves a installing some night time security lighting. As country people we are used to the darkness but appreciate that those from townships are more accustomed to better lighting. We are also thinking about...

This was a cabin that we liked a lot. Good-sized room with kitchenette and everything needed to make a meal. Comfortable bed. The lodge is somewhat isolated. The nearest store is in Princetown, about a 5-minute drive away, but it closed early on the one day and wasn’t open at all the next day due to an electrical outage. It...

We booked this to give ourselves a break from driving up and down the Great Ocean Road. The site has great views over the valley away from the sea and is shielded from highway noise by a hill. However, the cabins are shabby and poorly furnished. The bathroom is primitive and the kitchens are no match for what customers have...

Stayed here over Easter for one night, we were lucky to get a last minute cancellation and the host was very friendly and able to accommodate us for one night over Easter which most other places wouldn’t, a big tick! The location is great, just off the great ocean road, although don’t let the name fool you, there is no...

OK, so we're city dwellers from interstate and I booked this little cottage because it was close to the Apostles. When we first drove down the driveway, my kids teenage kids were freaking out slightly because they lost internet connection, it was pretty funny. Then when we parked up they were like OMG where have you brought us Mum, there's...

We booked a night recently and I enjoyed the stay. It's secluded and in the bush just off the road a few minutes before the 12 Apostles. There's 5 cabins spaced out with beautiful nature noises, it's self contained with quipped kitchen and linen provided. It was very hot inside and the aircon didn't work properly so didn't really cool...

The photos don't do this place justice. It is actually really lovely and super clean - with great kitchen facilities. great value if there are 4 of you (or a family) and literally 5 mins drive from the 12 apostles.

We stayed here for one night as part of our Great Ocean Road trip. It was just off the road in a quiet location. Parking was outside the cabin which was rustic. The cabin was very large with two double bedrooms. The kitchen was well equipped with a proper cooker along with microwave, fridge, toaster, and kettle and with a...

We stayed there for one night. Wish we had more nights there though We stayed at one of their units - Point Ronald. The unit looks old and run down from the out side but clearly this is a case of "don't judge a book by its cover". Inside was excellent - equipped kitchen, good dinnerware, functioning fridge and freezer,...
