Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This property was a perfect place for our long weekend away. It housed our two families (4 adults, 4 kids 7-12yo) comfortably without any feeling of being 'on top of each other'. It was well maintained with a lovely big kitchen and a variety of living spaces. We felt like we were in our own private bush retreat with plenty of room for the kids to roam while we were able to relax on the back deck. The kids (and adults) thoroughly enjoyed going yabbying in the dam and enough were caught to introduce them to the 'sport' of yabby racing. The outdoor firepit was an added bonus and it was lovely to sit around it at night and see the stars. This property made it feel like we had the advantages of camping but with the comforts of home, plus it was an easy drive to the beautiful Addis beach.

Jan was a wonderful host who gave us all the information we needed about the property which made it super easy to find and to settle straight in.

Our only negative was that we wished we could have stayed longer, we will definitely be back!!

Hello Jan

Just a short note to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at your Bellbrae property last weekend. The house and property were perfect, the weather OK and the wedding that we went for, an absolute Ripper.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

This house was very comfortable and extremely well equipped and really felt like you were staying with friends rather than a guest house. The kitchen had everything you need, there were games, DVDs and music. The decor was earthy and comfortable and overall it was an excellent place to stay. The location is extremely close to Bells Beach so would be a great place to stay for the Rip Curl pro. Pt Addis is a fantastic beach and wonderful for children as it's protected and has some gentle but surfable waves. Think it sleeps 6 adults really comfortably, would only push it to 8 if some of those 8 were kids.

Fantastic, tranquil place in great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is a good size and is in immaculate condition. It feels deep in the bush and has a feel of being very private and very peaceful... It's very quiet although it's excellent location means it's only a short drive along a gravel road to The Great Ocean Road between Anglesea and Torquay. The house is well equipped and really feels like a home from home. Our kids loved playing in the tree house and around the substantial grounds. The owner was very helpful and genuine and we would not hesitate to recommend this place.

We loved our stay at the Bush & Beach retreat! The place is so large, and the interior is beautiful. We felt very relaxed and secluded. Views out of every window are perfect. We yabbied and even had a campfire one night. Enjoyed the large selection of DVDs to choose from in the evenings. Kitchen was well equipped, loved having our breakfast on the big deck overlooking the bush and native wildlife. The only complaint we would have is that we did not stay long enough!

The Bush and Beach Retreat exceeded our expectations. This place is so spacious, with a magnificent interior. The surrounds made for a very relaxing time - we felt very secluded. We enjoyed yabbying and even had a campfire in the evening. There was an impressive selection of DVDs to choose from, and the kitchen was very well equipped! The only complaint we would have is that the holiday was just not long enough!
