Skenes Creek is an idyllic retreat, located on Great Ocean Road 6km from Apollo Bay & approximately 40km from Lorne. Here, just above the junction of Skenes Creek Road and Old Coach Road you will find OCEAN RETREAT.
This self contained two bedroom Cottage which can accommodate 6 people has all the comforts of home, providing one Queen Size bed, two bunks (4 beds) and each room with views of the ocean.
Imagine having breakfast looking out to the ocean and listening to the sound of the sea, spending the day at the beach or at one of the surrounding attractions, and in the evening enjoy the BBQ on the deck, a walk along the beach, and a glass of wine while relaxing on the couch - what a perfect way to end the day.
Apollo Bay is only five minutes away by car; giving easy access to large variety of shops and restaurants to treat yourself to a meal, browse the shops or just have a walk around the town.
OCEAN RETREAT is just a 50 metre stroll away from the beach, with magnificent views across the Great Ocean Road and is a perfect location to relax and enjoy an affordable holiday or short break.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely cottage with great views The cottage is clean and and as described. Very relaxing as you can see the ocean (as seen in the photos) from inside the cottage. At night, you can even hear the waves. Although near the road, the place is relatively quiet and also a short drive to the Apollo Bay shops. I would highly recommend staying here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic family get away!!! We loved the accommodation & the location. We thoroughly enjoy our stay. Waking it the morning to the beautiful view to Skenes Creek Beach, walking across to the caravan park for a great coffee. Spending the mornings enjoying the rain forests in the and the afternoons at the beach. Everything about our stay was fantastic & we highly recommend this place. The owners were a delight to deal with and we will be certain to return again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely property! We loved our stay here. Beautiful beach views from the house and a quick 1 min walk to a quiet, peaceful beach. Easy access to Apollo Bay but a quieter location. The house is very comfortable, with all the provisions you could need, and the owners are a pleasure to deal with. We're looking forward to going back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value, Awesome Location! After much research about where to stay on the Great Ocean Road we found this place. Ideal as a base to travel to the 12 Apostles one day and the Otway Fly the next! Also being just a few minutes drive from Apollo Bay made food shopping and dining out a breeze! And if like us you plan to dine at the amazing Chris's restaurant up at Beacon Point on the hill this place is just perfect as it's 2 mins drive back down the hill afterwards! To sum it up we had a lovely stay at this property. Everything was well presented, clean and user friendly. The view and location was just wonderful and we would have no hesitation in recommending this place to others as it is great value in a perfect location! Come see for yourselves!
