About Bryan James

My wife and I have been self employed business people and after over 30 years in business decided we needed a sea change.

We left the hustle of the city for the tranquility of the Apollo Bay and Great Ocean Road.

Bryan James purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Bryan James chose Wongarra

We were mesmerized by the views.

What makes this cottage unique

With the ocean on one side and the rain forest on the other, where else would you want to be!

What a stunning property

  • 5 of 5

The views from this property are spectacular, the accommodation is brilliant and the customer service we received was amazing. I have already recommended this gorgeous place to my family and friends. But make sure you book well ahead for this property as it will be book out in advanced. Just superb!

Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Many apologies for this review, as we were touring the rest of Victoria after our wonderful stay @ Points South in September 2017. Points South was one of our earlier pit-stops along our Great Ocean Road trip, and we are so glad to make a reservation here! Not only was the location easily accessible to Lorne and Apollo Bay, Bryan and Joan were very hospitable and welcomed us warmly during our 3days/2nights' stay there, where we were first greeted with a welcome basket that has enough munchies such as cereals and milk for our breakfasts. Bryan and Joan also assisted us with detailed instructions to nearby eateries, such as the highly recommended La Bimba (Apollo Bay). The amenities at Points South were much appreciated, and it was especially comforting for us to be able to do some laundry, before moving to other pit-stops. Most of all, we agreed with the other guests that the ocean view from our Cottage was magnificent, and there was no need for us to catch the sunrise and sunset at other locations, as we could enjoy such views right at our Cottage. We would definitely wish to be back again, and have a longer stay at Points South! Thanks so much, Bryan and Joan! :)

Comfortable with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful three nights in Cottage 1 which we used as a base for day hikes on the Great Ocean Walk out of Apollo Bay. Both the living areas and the bed are very comfortable. The cottage has lots of places to sit and relax - the window seats, cosy sofa or outside on the deck. We self-catered for our entire stay and found the cooking facilities, including a gas Weber BBQ, a four burner hot plate and a microwave, to be all we needed. Brian had prepared the fire for us to light our first night and left lots of wood for us to burn in the evenings while we were there. The reverse cycle air conditioner warmed the cottage quickly on the one cold morning we had. Brian is an attentive but not intrusive host. We love staying at Points South

by the Sea, listening to the sound of the ocean and taking in the great view and we will definitely return.

Stunning view

  • 5 of 5

Thx so much to Bryan for sharing his little slice of paradise. We had such stunning views from every aspect of our cottage. The wood fire was lovely to sit by and have a glass of wine. Everything you need has been thought of. Added special touch was a lovely welcome package. Thank you so much

Perfect...didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay as a family in cottage 3 and would highly recommend this beautiful cottage with amazing views of the ocean. Everything has been thought of to make the accommodation comfortable, including a goodie bag full of treats and wine to enjoy by the log fire. Bryan was a fabulous host who gave us great advice on places to see and where to eat etc. He went above and beyond to help us out which was appreciated. We would have liked to stay longer and hope to return one day. Thank you!
