We stayed in this delightful Guest House for two nights. when we arrived we were warmly greeted by the very hospitable owners. The position of our room was quite delightful, looking directly across a narrow river estuary on to the ocean. At night the sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep in a most comfortable bed. We had an area of deck outside our patio style doors where we could sit, read and watch the plentiful bird life in the estuary and the garden of native shrubs and trees. Marie, the lady of the house even had binoculars available to watch the birds.
The house was quite beautiful with a fascinating blend of French and Australian high quality design. This home stay is quite unique.

We enjoyed 2 nights of Maree's hospitality during our our tour of the Great Ocean Road. We would have loved to stay longer but our schedule did not permit. We had the 'blue room' downstairs overlooking the river, ocean and wildlife....just marvellous and very tranquil.
This guest house is really a home and has been tastefully furnished and decorated by Maree and her husband.
The bedrooms are comfortable with adequate storage for cases, and a very well appointed ensuite bathroom. Tea, coffee is provided in the room and a small fridge is present for keeping things cool....like wine for example!! We had the continental breakfast enjoying Maree's special Granola.....worth the stay on its own. Maree helped us with our choice of dinner reservations and this was much appreciated. We ate at the local Italian ( superb) and make the trek to Chris's Beacon restaurant with magnificent views and excellent cuisine.
Maree's hospitality ensures that you have a great visit to Apollo Bay. Do not consider other accommodation.....JUST DO IT!!

Thank you Maree and Vincent for providing us with a wonderful two nights in your lovely studio suite. It was so comfortable and welcoming with everything we could need including house coats, slippers, choc bars, cookies - I could go on and on!! Having the log fire burning in the cool evenings was an added bonus as was waking up to open the blinds and seeing the amazing view of the sea. The larder was full of all we could want for a very good continental breakfast. Maree's home made muesli was delicious and we purchased a packet to bring home. On our second morning two croissants appeared outside the door!!! Thank you also for all your help and kindness with organising a visit to the doctor. It's the best B&B we ever staying in and would certainly recommend it. It's a stay we will remember for a very long time. Thank you.

Perfect. We stayed here for one night while traveling through Apollo Bay on a vintage car tour. Our hosts, Maree & Vincent, were very welcoming and helpful. We stayed in the lovely guesthouse that looks out onto the garden and from upstairs has a beautiful view of the water. Maree helped us with our dinner reservations and when we returned to the guesthouse she had thoughtfully lit the fireplace. Perfect accommodation, perfect hosts and a perfect location!

Stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the wonderful hospitality provided by Maree and Vin. Accommodation is sited on the river's edge with uninterrupted sea views and we slept with our door open to the sounds of the sea. Home cooked breakfast, private lounge, WIFI and amazing surrounds made this a memorable stay. Located within walking distance of village eateries, beaches and all Apollo Bay has to offer. Nothing was any trouble for Maree and Vin, even providing us with beach towels for our morning dip. Great stay.

Room Tip: Ask your host Maree, I'm sure she will have a solution for you. All rooms have ocean views. B&am...

We had the pleasure to stay 3 nights - and it was just perfect! We selected this Guest House to relax and enjoy the beautiful ocean. The rooms aren't big - but there is enough space for a couple and you have your private bathroom. It is very clean and charming and very nice made. There is also a living room and a breakfast/tee room in the house available and since the Guest House only has 2 rooms in the main house (and a two floor apartment) - you can really enjoy the other rooms without getting disturbed. There is really a "beeing home"-feeling coming up. The veranda in front of the room faces directly the ocean - and no buildings disturb you. it is also really quite and you can enjoy your privacy. The hosts - Maree and Vin - are wonderful and very friendly. They take care about everything immediately. Sitting on the veranda drinking a cognac and observing the dawn was great and we miss it already. We want to thank Maree and Vin for their wonderful hospitality and friendliness which allowed us to relax and enjoy these days more than we could imagine. When we are back in the area, we will definitely book in this guest house again!

We stayed just the one night here, and wished it could have been longer. Maree is a wonderful hostess; it's more like staying with a family friend than a B&B. Her home-made granola (just launched in the shops, I believe!) is to die for, as is the rest of the breakfast. The location is superb, too - about 5 or 6 mins walk into Apollo Bay itself, so away from any traffic and totally quiet at night. Faultless.
