Wonderful Winter Retreat

  • 4 of 5

This property was absolutely perfect for our getaway to celebrate a birthday with friends. There was more than enough room for eight adults with four bedrooms upstairs, three with queen sized beds and one with twin beds. Downstairs was another bedroom with a queen sized bed and twin beds.

The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed and the place was very clean and well maintained on arrival. The spa heated up perfectly and there was plenty of firewood provided which meant that even though there were thunderstorms the entire time we were there, we kept warm and cosy!

There was no Wi-Fi as mentioned by a previous poster and very limited reception, however we used this as an opportunity to disconnect from our devices and phones for the weekend and really loved it. We also got to see Koalas in the trees lining the drive in as well as Kangaroos on the property which was very exciting for us! The views of the ocean from both the living area, deck and some of the bedrooms was also absolutely stunning.

The only downside to being in the bush was the millipedes (also mentioned in another post). They weren't too bad as long as the lights were kept off but did get a bit annoying, would need to vacuum daily if staying longer than a night or two but there was a vacuum provided.

A few minor things that could be improved would be a new can opener (the one there was broken), instructions inside the pool area as to where to re-set the pool heating which is located outside, and a note to say where the extra firewood is kept as well as some outdoor seating on the deck.

Overall we absolutely loved our stay and would definitely come back again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us at Sea Eagle Retreat Gabrielle; Thank you for your feedback; we have addressed the issue with better notices regarding the pool re-set. Unfortunately, the millipedes are an autumn seasonal issue and part of the natural environment at Cape Otway. They are harmless. We have taken a number measures to reduce their impact on guests staying at the property. You are a most welcome guest and we look forward to hopefully having you back to stay in the future.

Great and amazing place, but....

  • 3 of 5

This place is really awesome with great breathtaking views... the jacuzzi and spa iso so relaxing and nice... but the horrified thing is those worms crawling all around the house!!! I'm amazed that nobody write about this.. hahaha... perhaps cos we are used to staying in the city... all these crawlies just make us feel so uncomfortable.

Another awesome thing is the great fireplace.... but unable to enjoy it fully cos of the worms crawling. oh yes, there are worms in the rooms as well.. which really freak us out.

And if you are thinking of staying at the lower floor, you can walk footsteps of those living on the 2nd storey very clearly... which actually cause my sister unable to sleep well... so in the end all of us got to sleep on the 2nd storey instead.

In conclusion, for such pricing that we are paying, we are actually expecting much more.. no crawlies (if a few we wouldn't mind.. but its really quite a lot)... and basic soundproofing would be good :)

But i like that their have baby high chair there as well, thanks for this ;)

Owner's Response: These are millipedes and are prevalent in South West Victoria. They are harmless but very hard to eradicate during the colder months. No matter how much cleaning you can never eradicate them all in such a remote setting.

Fabulous location

  • 4 of 5

Truly wonderful location and a great family holiday.The house was spacious, comfortable, and very private, with a driveway about 1 kilometer long through coastal scrub full of koalas and wallabies. From most of the rooms there was a 180 degree view of coastal heath-land running down to the ocean. the only building in sight was the old Cape Ottway lighthouse in the distance. Just great!

The one disappointment was the lack of internet. We had several kids from our family traveling in S.E.Asia who we needed to keep in touch with, and also had a medical emergency for which we needed to be in contact daily with family in Melbourne. We could have used mobiles but they only work intermittently in that area, and the house phone was for local calls only. For us it was a real problem, and one we would have appreciated knowing about before we booked the house. We assumed that in booking a premium property such as this that internet would just be part of the package.

Cape Otway is amazing! However I came away from this holiday a disappointed.

As you can imagine we were excited about this special holiday and an opportunity to relax for two weeks. Unfortunately on the first day we realised that the spa did not work. After dealing with the stressed out owner and plumbers (for two days), it was out of action for the entire two weeks. The spa and pool were the reasons we decided to rent this house and outlay a little more in rent.

Another worry was the state of the pool fence, unlikely to meet Australian standards, with parts of the poles rusted through at the base.

Owner's Response: The spa broke down during the guests stay and as you can understand during the weekend you cannot get anyone to fix the spa. However the pool was fully functional and was used for the entire 2 weeks during the stay.

Amber really put alot of work into this place. It is super clean and ready for use as you would have your own place. Everything is working and ready for you. I would recommend this house for anyone wanting to get well away from citylife in a house that reflects how you would keep your own house.
