We stayed 2 nights in August with friends whilst touring the Great Ocean Road.
This lovely guest house was once a convent which has been tastefully converted into a guest house. It is beautifully and tastefully decorated with items collected from the owner's travels around the world and items belonging to her family, and even beautiful paintings by the owner Vivienne herself. Each room in the house has a theme- there was the China Room, the Peacock Room, the Dog Room...
Our room was large and very comfortable. It had a large comfy bed, air conditioning, a lounge area and a big bathroom with a big tub and a double shower.
The entire house is so beautiful and cosy you could easily spend all your time in there relaxing in one of the rooms reading, watching the many DVDs available or just simply chilling out n listening to music with your loved ones.
Breakfast was served in 2 different rooms while we were there, each one gorgeously decorated like the rest of the house. Breakfast was delicious! The eggs were done in any style you choose from eggs from the chickens in the backyard. Vivienne came to chat with us each morning and offer advice on what to do and where to dine the rest of the day. If you're a dog lover, you can ask to meet the resident dogs- a beautiful black standard poodle and an equally gorgeous black labradoodle, both extremely affable, just like their owners. They are usually kept in the family's private quarters in consideration of guests who may be pet-shy.
We were all sad to leave at the end of our trip and would return in a flash if we're ever in that neck of the woods again. We wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who wants a stay in a place which is rich in character and who enjoys the warm, cosy hospitality of home. We can't imagine that anyone would have anything to complain about this place at all. Thanks a million, Vivienne!
