This condo is fantastically close to the beach with an incredible cafe. Whilst we choose not to cook, the kitchen is well equiped if we had wanted to use it.
Style wise, this holiday rental has an understated sophistication and we felt very at home. Loved the deck, garden and especially the gas log fire. The nook upstairs we used as an office and with the fast wi fi was perfect for our business needs.
Access to the apartment was made easy and communication with the owners was consistent and friendly. I would highly recommend this apartment and look forward to coming back.
Ocean Grove is a great location to be based to explore the Bellarine Peninsula. Alice's Palace is literally a stones throw from arguably one of the best beaches on this entire coast line. We had fantastic communication from the Owners, who clearly take their property very seriously and have put a lot of time and effort into the style of it. It is VERY well appointed and comfortable. Big TV, great sound, comfortable furniture, well thought out kitchen requirements, luxurious linen, etc etc. Obviously a lot of time & passion put into the property.
There are 2 car spots, although one is a little tight if you had 2 large 4WD's, and there is no actual lockable storage for surfboards / bikes, so make sure you bring an external lock if you have these. We brought bikes and had an awesome time riding into Barwon Heads on the separate bike path. Be aware that it is also a long walk to the shops restaurants in Ocean Grove but you have the cafe / restaurant at the beach which is certainly worth visiting. Many restaurants also deliver so it is not a downside.
Frankly, being at the beach in 2 mins beats being close to the main shopping strip every day!
Overall - highly recommended!
We stayed at Alice's Palace for a week. We had a fabulous time! Daily walks to the surf beach, morning coffee at the Dunes, and beautiful sunsets. Conveniently located near Ocean Grove & Barwon Heads for restaurants, markets and shopping. The townhouse was comfortable, cute, and clean. Kitchen was well stocked for cooking meals at home.
Alice and Phillip were great with communication and very helpful with information and suggested activities. they truly have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable and easy!
We highly recommend Alice's Palace and will definitely stay again the next time we are in Australia!
