“Most memorable stay ever”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

Been to great ocean road a few times before but never explored the cape otway national park. By accident found this lovely dog friendly place. The sunrise cottage is the best out of the 4 there with very new interior and nice big kitchen with plenty of utensils. The whole place is a serene surroundings with plenty of plants and wild lifes. Koala and Kangaroo were easily seen. It's 5 minutes drive to Cape otway lighthouse and 40 minutes drive to Tree top walk both of which we enjoyed enormously. 50 minutes to 12 Apostles. 20~30 minutes to Apolo bay where you can find some super market and many eatery places. Wish we could stay a bit longer and try the shipwreck walk along the coast.

We had a lovely break at Shearwater Cottages over the Easter and ANZAC break. Our cottage was secluded and exceptionally quiet, very clean and ample utensils in the kitchen to make life easy. Wish that the cottage was closer to the sea itself, but it was still great. Our best friend had a great break too, enjoying the outdoors and lapping up the open spaces. Koalas aplenty too with Wallabies grazing the in the field below!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Premium accommodation close to the Great Ocean Walk. Positioned high in the dunes and surrounded by the magnificent Great Otway National Park, our cottages have been designed to blend in total harmony with our unique coastal environment. They are nestled high in the dunes on one of most elevated vantage points on Cape Otway, close to the ocean near the Otway Lighthouse. Each of our cottages are spacious, comfortable, self-contained, private, pet friendly and all have fully equipped kitchens. They have been carefully sited about 100 metres apart and each is completely hidden from the others by rolling dunes and coastal bush-land. There is magical beach and forest walking right on the doorstep, both within and outside of the Otway National Park which surrounds us. Because of our location the property and surrounds is home to kangaroos, wallabies and particularly Koalas, as well as a wide range of bird life. ... more   less
