Nice place would go again without the dogs

5/5 Excellent

Heaven - Birds, Biking and Beach!
We've just returned home after 5 wonderful days at Otway Haven. The cottage (which is a totally private, self contained arm off the main residence) was comfortable, stylish and really well appointed. Comfy beds with quality linen, interesting books, and fresh flowers/foliage awaited us on arrival. The property is well located - 15mins to the Mountain Bike Trails at Forrest and 15mins to the Beach amidst established gardens and native forest. Our highlight (apart from the activities) was sitting and taking our meals under an ancient tree watching the abundant birdlife. So relaxing and restorative. Laurence was a great host and even baked us fresh bread one day. Thank you again for a great stay and we hope to meet you next time Kate.

5/5 Excellent

Great location given the weather

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful quiet weekend getaway
We arrived late, it was a little hard to see from the road when coming from Apollo bay, but the spot is quiet and beautiful. Came with all the amenities needed, would happily stay here again.

5/5 Excellent

Great place to experience life in the Otways
Absolutely loved this place, the wood fire was charming, bed was comfy and we really appreciated the fresh bread and provisions.
