The reception and assistance team at Rayville was really outstanding. We had a few accidents with the baby and they could not have been nicer. Portacot was free of charge. Otherwise the villa was fantastic for a family. All we needed was there inside the villa and the place was extremely clean. We also made good use of the large...

We stayed for one night and arrived late then needed to check out at 10am, so we didn't get to appreciate the lovely house as much as liked. Very clean with fully stocked kitchen. Crockery and cutlery, iron and board, vacuum cleaner. Towels in the bathroom and soap. Satchels of shampoo. Very friendly staff who are happy to advise

Very beautiful property. The houses were clean, well equipped and the management at reception was very attentive to all our needs, including a friendly early check-in and later check-out. Very easy to walk everywhere in town.

We stopped over for one night on a Great Ocean Road trip - a party of five adults. The location is excellent, with a 5min walk to shops and restaurants. Accommodation is clean and spacious, with queen, double and twin bedrooms and one bathroom downstairs. Lounge, dining room and balcony with great view are upstairs. Furniture and decor was a...

Great place to stay. Very nice arrangement of villas and very clean and tidy and everything was there. Especially nice, however was the fishing co-operative just opposite at the harbour where we could get some fresh fish and cook it on the barbeque.

The holiday houses were very well designed with a beach like look and painted in bright colors. Very clean, well equipped and altogether presented in a very nice atmosphere. the managers were very nice too and we walked to the restaurants. All in all a good choice.

We were just passing through Apollo Bay for one night - I founf Rayville on booking.com We arrived on a wet cold afternoon but the staff were great - thumbs up to Josh and Joanne(?) who made us welcome. We live in the tropics and were feeling the cold so Josh very kindly brought a box of wood for us...

These are beach-type houses in pretty colors and very well presented inside the town. The house was very clean and very well appointed. Also, the managers were very friendly. The free surf boards were also a bonus. The houses are located right next to the beaches.

Hi Jacob, thanks for your "pretty nice" comments and will maintain our efforts in this way!

The highlight of this stop was to take the Kayaks (free at reception) and tour across the bay to some rocks with a large number of seals on them. Wow. The beach houses themselves were very pretty looking and extremely comfortable. Also, the owners were very friendly. ... Excellent!

Thank you Gabriel. We love to hear that you enjoyed the "prettiness" of our villas and will continue to keep them that way. Fun fact: Did you realize that seals can swim in spurts of up to 20 knots (23mph or 37kmph) underneath your Kayak.

Great accomodation a few minutes from apollo bay main street. We stayed with our 4m old baby and had a great time. Villa itself has everything you need for a self catering holiday. Good communal facilities on site too, laundry, bbq/picnic area. They can even lend you kayaks, fishing stuff, dvds etc to keep you entertained. The staff are great...
