5/5 Excellent

Perfect little getaway!
This is one of the rare places that actually exceeded my expectations. The location is gorgeous, the garden is so calming with birds and wildlife and lots of care had been taken with the room. Nice linen, comfy pillows (there were two kinds, so take your pick!) the shower was great and there were some yummy things to snack on for breaky. We had such a nice time here with our little Beagle (she loved it too) and would totally recommend it to all our friends and family if they’re looking for a nice tranquil and well appointed place. We had such a nice break hanging out reading and playing board games here :) Thanks so much to Laurence!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely and relaxing stay
We only stayed one night but the property was quiet and relaxing and very exciting being the first weekend out after lockdown! Laurence and Kate were lovely hosts leaving us a fresh mini loaf of bread with jams and a good amount of info about the local area. I’d recommend staying here as it makes everything in the Otways within a good distance. Would go back in a heartbeat.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect getaway
Beautiful, clean, modern & functional accommodation in a paradise rainforest setting.
