“Wild weather only added to this cool place. We only stayed one night to break up our GOR trip but it was a cosy stay in a top lodge, 2 adults and 2 kids. Amazing location, very peaceful apart from the rain but this made for lovely rainbows 🙂 Would recommend.”
“Absolutely outstanding views of the Ocean…as the owners say…if you are at the bottom row of apartments, you cannot get much closer or you are in the ocean (I believe that the views from the hill are amazing too though). It is a lovely collection of apartments on a hill with sufficient privacy without being too secluded. We absolutely loved the place, the location, the views, the ambience, and the coffee in the morning. We hope to be back next year.”
“Seafarers Getaway is about 5km out of Apollo Bay, but only 3 mins by car. We had a unit at the front of the property with a sensational view of the bay (it feels like you could touch it) out the front. You can see the view through the glass front. Sensational. Friendly service. No wonder it has such great reviews. Recommended.”
“One of the best views I had for an accommodation – view of the Ocean right at the room. Stayed in Room 15 but think it didn’t have the best view cos it wasn’t the corner unit. There were alpacas and sheep grazing right at the doorstep. Shower/toilet area was pretty decent too. 5 min drive to Apollo Bay where you can get cafes and restaurants.”
“A beautiful view from a lovely apartment. We stayed at this accommodation for three nights in October. We booked the Top Lodge because we wanted to be away from the main road. It is a drive up the hill to our room but it is well worth it as the view is absolutely stunning and no road noise. There is also a resident koala on site and lots of birdlife to keep you busy watching them.”
“We checked into Seafarers as a stay for the midway point of the Great Ocean Road. The room was absolutely beautiful, with incredible views over the ocean. The room was clean and well appointed, with a sitting room, kitchen, comfortable bed, and bathroom with double shower heads and a view outside. The porch looked over a pond and some grazing alpacas and had a grill in case you wanted to cook. I also enjoyed some tea wrapped up in the heavy blanket on the Adirondack chairs outside. Very peaceful and I wish I could have stayed longer!”
