A B&B with character

Thanks Peter- the views and nature at the moment are amazing! Willamena- our local wallaby mum- has been visiting with her joey and the mob of kangaroos have been delighting the guests when they show. We've really tidied the gardens and working hard on the rooms- and the feedback is positive. love the many return guests who are getting back in touch and we're able to offer great deals to our regulars! A magic place to visit!!

It is a beautiful locations and we continue to work hard to improve the cottages and grounds. With the linen we have only just purchased new towels, etc, so I'm assuming its not those you refer to. With the bed linen we don't like the harsh white bedding of lots of motels- we try to match our linen to the cottages- which are rustic- so I'm assuming this doesn't fit your tastes, and that's ok, because we all have different tastes. Maria buys new pillows and bedding regularly so I can guarantee you would have slept in very recently purchased and tidy linen. With the distance to the shops you are right- but if you read the information I send with every booking this is well explained, and some people rave about the helpful hints I send them, as it really helps to plan their stay.

Thanks Lorna, Love your comments and it was fabulous to meet you. We are working hard to improve the cottages and ensure they are modern, clean, updated and have great views. We really appreciate your feedback- it helps us feels this hard work is recognized. All the best- welcome back anytime!
Nice and relaxing house

Thanks Tommy, it was great to meet you both and share our amazing part of the world. Welcome back anytime- just get in touch!
Beautiful location for couples retreat.

It is mentioned in all the room descriptions that the two suites share a common commercial kitchen and it is one of the most popular parts of the stay because you can meet people from all around the world and share the magic of Moonlight Head- lots of our guests really love this. On the other side the kitchen lounge is so big that you can have your own space anyway and your rooms include a lounge suite, own deck and own bathroom- and amazing views! All you could want when exploring the GOR and Twelve Apostles.
Scenic and quiet getaway

Hi Paul, when a guest books beforehand we send a comprehensive guide on local eating, supermarkets and tourism info. It is a great planner for the local area and our guests really appreciate it. Obviously a last minute booking can't get these ideas and you're right- there is limited options in the area- the Twelve Apostles is in an undeveloped part of the world- which makes it more beautiful.
A great getaway

Thanks for your comments Ben- cottages do have amazing views and are very rustic and homely. We continue to work hard to clean them up and improve. Must admit over winter bathroom is quite chilly at times- lucky the jacuzzi is heated to 38 degrees and so inviting!
Very quiet and peaceful

Glad you enjoyed your stay Paul and Joanne, some of the local walks are breathtaking- we even have the Great Ocean Walk just down from us and we are in the middle of the last two/three legs, and the most popular parts too!
