Description

SLEEP with the SOUND OF THE WAVES

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 Relaxing stay We stayed here last winter and had a wonderful getaway. The home has a warm atmsphere and is extemely comfortable. It is across the road from the beach (even though it was winter and a little cold to spend much time there) and a short drive to Apollo Bay. We had a really relaxing stay here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, our new fav! We loved the property and the location, just far enough away for an escape from the hustle, but close enough if anything is needed. It had everything we expected and was lovely and clean. A great view of the beach and ocean, we even had a great vantage point to watch a whale go past!. We will be returning and recommending.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Accommodation! We've just returned home our stay at Ocean Retreat but we didn't want to leave. The cottage was clean and very comfortable! Everything we possibly required was provided and it felt like home during our stay. A few bonus features discovered after our arrival were a tv & blu ray player in the master bedroom (perfect for the kids, while parents watch the main tv), super comfy recliners in the lounge, and an Aldi coffee pod machine! The location is perfect and the owners are an absolute pleasure to deal with. We loved our stay and are looking forward to going back again! Very highly recommended!!
