Comfort With Breathtaking Views

Pros: The views, the comfortable bed, all the amenities (self contained), closeness to the city centre and attractions, friendly welcoming service.
My partner and I stayed for 3 nights and wished it was much longer. The bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in, and waking up to the amazing views over the property towards the ocean was magical. Being allowed to take along our dog was awesome. He loved the long walks around the property. We were close to the city and all attractions, not that you have to leave the property all that often. It was fun relaxing at the cottage and enjoying the views and all the amenities it had to offer. Sonja and her husband were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Even their dog Charlie spent a lot of time at our cottage and came on walks with us. It was spectacular value for money and had everything we could have ever asked for. We will be returning that's for sure. Thanks so much.

Annual Pt Fairy Jazz Festival

Pros: Cleanliness, spacious, comfortable
Cons: Instructions on how to use air con, couldn't get heat to work
Location: Pt Fairy Music events
We drove up and down Illowa road a number of times before we found High View. Wasn't easy to identify. Other than that we loved the venue.

Highly recommend you go for the cottage

Views magnificent, dog was more than welcome, there kids and dog are lovely and the location is fantastic. So close to Warrnambool, yet so far. Room was cosy, never needed to turn on the heating, even though it was cold outside. Would go back again.
