About the property

Luxurious spa Studios offering incredible private Otways wilderness views

"This is simply the most stunning getaway experience in the Lorne Hinterland. The contemporary accommodation is luxurious and private, offering a romantic escape, private getaway or secluded base from which to explore the Great Ocean Road and Otway Ranges. The unique 'cantilever' design of the Studios is a work of art, ensuring that from every angle guests are indulged with breathtaking views over the Great Otway National Park." Voted by the public the 8th best place to stay in Victoria (RACV 101).

Your privacy and comfort is paramount at Window On The Otways. The perfect escape for couples looking to get away from it all and spend quality time together. Explore the Otways and the beautiful Surfcoast beaches or simply relax in the stunning seclusion of your Studio.

Enjoy sensational views over the Great Otways National Park from your own private and romantic double spa bath, or retreat to the newly opened Sanctuary infrared sauna and meditation space for complete relaxation.

Generous complimentary breakfast hamper including Pennyroyal Bush Bread, locally made jam, local free range eggs, bacon, milk, pancake mix, and a bottle of Loretta Blanc de Noir from the renowned local Brown Magpie Winery. A well stocked pantry with coffee, a range of teas, muesli, local olive oil, and other staples is provided for your enjoyment.

The Studios

With just two Studios, privately spaced 100 metres apart, you only have to share this experience with your partner/lover/friend.

The studios are mirror images of each other, 5-class luxury with simply stunning views.

The Studios are fully self-contained with their own driveway and car park, double spa, wood-fire, LCD TV and DVD, reverse cycle air-conditioning, dishwasher, microwave, BBQ, fluffy robes, contemporary linen bedding, cosy blankets, natural body care products, essential oils, candles and many extras to make your stay romantic, relaxing and memorable. Access is via digital lock and the code will be sent to you prior to your arrival to ensure your complete privacy.

The Sanctuary infrared sauna and meditation space is nestled between the Studios, and offers incredible views across the valley. Use is complimentary.


Window On The Otways is in the stunning Pennyroyal Valley on the edge of the Great Otway National Park in the Surf Coast Hinterland. It is a 15 minute drive from the vibrant coastal resort town of Lorne and the iconic Great Ocean Road.

This magnificent 30 acre property is mostly native forest - birdlife abounds and kangaroos graze in front of the Studios, a real treat when they have their young in the pouch. The Koalas and echidnas are a little more difficult to spot but are around.

There are a large number of wonderful bush walks in the area, a copy of Walking The Otways is in each Studio for your reference.

For your added security, this property is only managed in Australia and we never request payments be made to overseas bank accounts. We are a small family offering boutique bushland accommodation in an area that we love and live in ourselves.

Secluded - 20mins north of Lorne centre

  • 4 of 5

We chose to stay here as it was inbetween Lorne and Birregurra because we were going to Brae for one of the three days. It was fully equipped with everything you could need for a quick get away. Nice breakfast included with amazing bread. It has a lovely view of the mountains. We didn't make it to the spa or the vegetable garden. the DVD wasn't working and there was no internet unless you stepped out onto the road - but that wasn't a bad thing for us at all.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you both had a wonderful time here Hayden. It was a pleasure having you stay at Window On The Otways. It is indeed a gorgeous time to snuggle by the fire or soak in the spa and watch the mist move through the valley. We love winter in the Otways! Kind thanks and very best wishes, Claire and John

Pure Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Window on the Otways. The studio was perfect for escaping from the city to relax in quality and comfort. The views were simply beautiful and Maryanne was always friendly and helpful in recommending places to eat and visit. The bed was very comfortable to sleep in and there were many small touches which made our stay extra special. We would definitely come back again for another visit!

Peaceful bliss

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay. The cottage and views are amazing, the bed was so comfy and relaxing either in the spa bath or in front of the fire was simply brilliant. Two nights stay was really not long enough. A great place to stay. Thanks Maryanne and Deb.

Perfect Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It has been 2 days since we got back home and we have got to say that we really missed the place, Window on the Otways really is perfect for a peaceful getaway, cannot express enough how lovely it is to relax in a warm tub with a beautiful view, sipping on liqueur tokay (sorry we've finish it, it is just really good!). The house is nice and cosy, everything is clean the day we got there. The kangaroos in the morning, the swimming pool and the sauna are a big plus. Maryanne and Deb is really nice and friendly, Would love to visit again some day when we have some more free time!
