We stayed in cottage 3, secluded and with a panoramic view of the surf from a spacious deck or through the wall of windows. (The entire coastline of this part of the Great Ocean Road is breathtaking.) We were welcomed by a care package, including two bottles of wine and groceries to get us started. A bottle of champagne was...

We stayed at the cottages for a second time, and we'll be coming back again! Loved it, amazing views, beautiful hospitality, complete peace and relaxation. Bryan is a wonderful host, and is a pleasure to deal with. Kids had a ball! Thanks again!

Having just spent a delightful week at Points South we would highly recommend both the cottages and Bryan's hospitality. The location is perfect - being about 15 minutes from Apollo Bay and overlooking a pristine stretch of coastline. Spotting koalas that reside on the property was a bonus and something guests with children are sure to enjoy. Everything possible has...

The views over the ocean can change from lovely when it's calm to spectacular when it's not. Secluded location but close to Apollo Bay and the lovely Wye River with terrific walks along the beach.

The reviews for these cottages are accurate. Secluded yet within a short drive to Apollo Bay . Wonderful views of the ocean sitting beside the wood burning fire with a glass of red cannot be beaten.
