The location and aspect were excellent. All of the facilities were top notch. It was just a little unclear where the external bins were as they had been put out by the caretaker and the bbq was only a sunbeam electric with a damaged lid. This did not impact negatively on our stay and we would definitely choose to stay again.

Good location across the road from the beach

Pros: The location was great
Cons: It needs refurbishing, the appliances are old and dated, the floor is in poor condition and it needs serious cleaning in the cupboards and drawers.
This is an excellent place to stay with a young family. There is a huge green lawn to play on and some of the cottages have play structures. It is fairly dated inside, with a pine cottage feel, but therefore no worries about having kids running about. The washing machine and drier worked well. It was pretty peaceful and quiet. The main downsides were it needs a really thorough clean, not the sort of ‘lick & polish’ it is currently getting. The fridge was old with the plastic yellowing and the door shelves missing. There were lots of decent frypans and saucepans but not a single baking tray for the oven. There was no dishwasher which was a bit surprising for the cost of this accommodation. Apollo Bay itself is a lovely town, close to bushwalks in the Otways and the rock pools just across the road, at the end of the beach, are rich with sea life.

Apollo Bay getaway

Great spot to explore the Otways. Quiet, comfy but close to town.

Step back in time

The cottages look quaint online (although we saw a mix of photos of modern & old style wooden so weren't sure which we would get) but in reality they just felt a bit uncomfortable and poorly equipped - cooker was old, bathroom dated and lighting poor - I felt like I was living again in my 70s childhood home. The TV wouldn't work on digital so we couldn't watch several of the basic core channels and there must have been a bees nest somewhere as we had to remove 14 from the cottage over the course of 24 hours & we had kept all the doors and windows shut. It's actually in Marengo (despite the name) so not really walking distance into Apollo Bay for dinner in the evening so you would have to drive to be safe. The cottages look out onto a lovely green space shared by all the cottages where we sat out on a blanket in the early evening so some pluses but as is common along the GOR, significantly less for your money than you get elsewhere e.g. Mornington Peninsula.

A little home away from home

Amazing staff, beautiful location and a cosy cottage to return to after a long day exploring all there is to offer. Definitely recommend it and definitely be booking again!

Clean & cosy, beautiful location.

The cabin was immaculately clean & well stocked with everything you need, dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, coffee etc. The cabin itself is quite old but has been very well maintained & looked after. The outlook onto the grass area was lovely & the view to the beach is beautiful. The only thing is the shower is quite low in pressure. Everything else about the stay was fantastic, I wouldn't hesitate to de cons to others.
