Google maps takes the user to a private property of the same address. Maybe some warning if this or extra explanation of address. Otherwise excellent stay

We are so sorry that Google took you to the wrong address, we are actually sited on Google maps, so we are at odds to know why google would send to private address, as there is no other 3 Murray street, in Apollo bay. but we apologies for the inconvenience. We are glad you enjoyed staying with us, thank you for booking with Sandpiper

Lovely accommodation with comfortable Bed. We had a 2 night stay in an ocean view room. The view was perfect, nestled in the trees with the Ocean in the background, just what we expected. Location was perfect! tucked away from the main road with only a short stroll to Cafes and Restaurants and of course the famous Apollo Bay beach. **A Restful Base for discovering the great ocean road between Apollo Bay and Port Campbell. We will be back ☺️

Staff were lovely & the room was very private at the back of the property with lots of birds singing in the surrounding trees on the patio. Only a short walk to the shops & beach. We had a TV that wasn’t working properly & they did not have cable channels as advertised. Couches were very uncomfortable

Lovely service at check in. Large comfortable room with a great view and balcony. Could hear other guests quite loudly outside but not too bothered.
