Awesome Art, architecture and ambiance. Arrived at a very ordinary looking entrance that opened up to an incredible place. It was like falling down Alice in Wonderlands rabbit hole and arriving in a totally, utterly magical world. The landscaped black volcanic rock garden set against the incredible designed building was just amazing. The views are as beautiful as you expect but with added surprises like herds of cattle and Roos grazing past. The welcome from the hosts was genuine, articulate and full of warmth. Absolutely loved chatting to the manger. After a long drive and hikes nearby (triplet falls and Melba Gully) it was great to relax in the restaurant section (such cool decor and music playing) with a gorgeous cheese and dip platter and wine. Stayed in The Donald- ocean views, sky of stars at night. Bathed in a deep bath overlooking Johanna’s beautiful sweeping landscape and watched the Waves. Four poster bed was comfy, cosy and clean. Off set sitting room was lovely too. Black tiled bathroom was edgy and a good contrast the colours in the Donald room.Breakfast was plentiful and completely yummy. As lovely watching the cows graze just below. Was sad to go, could easily have spent several nights there. Only suggestion for stayers is bring some snacks along as it’s very remote. Thank you for a beautiful stay- you are doing an awesome job.

Very poor customer service. Was charged money for the booking but hotel staff is refusing that we have a booking and did not even acknowledge that they already sent a confirmation email! I was totally traumatized with the experience having no accommodation 5 hours away from Melbourne on a drizzling evening, tired and hungry and wasn't entertained very well at the front gate! You send a confirmation email, pre-charge your customer for the stay, then suddenly claim that you don't have their booking! Worst is telling a lie that Expedia cancelled our booking, but when I asked Expedia, they said they did not and it was the proerty who cancelled it without prior notice to the customer! I felt literally shooed away from a service that I paid for!

The room was great (Donald), comfortable bed, incredible views... the bath in the window was a winner! The 'balcony' is on the back side of the building with no views. The shared deck is incredible, though people can look from it straight to you in the bath/in bed. The dinner for two was insanely overpriced. The antipasto was crudely basic (looked like ingredients from a Coles Deli with a brown bread roll) and the pasta was not a $50 dish... but I guess you pay for the view. We went into Apollo Bay and grabbed food for the next night. Frank was a brilliant host, great for a chat. Overall wonderful experience, just a shame about the cost of the dinner. An incredible building in a stunning location.

Pros: Views.
Cons: Nil
Location: Johanna beach 5mins has great surf - wild at times. Great ocean walk passes by. Glow worms. Otway fly.
Lucked upon this one. Felt a million miles away. Secluded and private with breathtaking views. Chef quality food - definitely recommend the dinner box. Everything made on site. Peace, tranquillity, exclusive. Art and architecture lovers will especially enjoy the care put into this place. Extremely hospitable; Felicity could not have treated us any better. Will be going back.

Lovely romantic valentine's getaway.....

Pros: Design, position and original quirky art works.....very unique.
Cons: The driveway incline for low riding vehicles. (Personal joke to from the super low Raf.)
Location: Captivated by the surroundings of the property, didn't need to venture locally.
Beautiful dream style views of the contrasting natural surrounding environment, luscious rolling hills and scenic beach. This property was explained and expressed as a truly a work in progress and is visually inspiring. Much gratitude and credit to the very friendly and hospitable owners, Raf and Felicity were very warm, genuine and we consider new found friend from our short stay. We look forward to returning.

Relax and unwind

Very relaxing band b staff were very accommodating. I would choose the room with the ocean view next time! We missed out on it and that was the only thing that was missing!
