‘Everything you need is there, including absolute peace and quiet. This place is completely secluded and the views, well the views are amazing, some of the best I’ve seen along the Great Ocean Road.

‘The indoor fire place really worked a charm for those winter nights and days, and the outdoor bathtub… let me just say, it is incredibly hard to get out once you’re in and looking out over the hills, whether it be sunrise, sunset or the middle of the day. Could harp on forever, all you need to know is, to just go!’

Others dubbed it a ‘little slice of paradise’ and the ‘most relaxing holiday’ they have had since the pandemic began in early 2020.
