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 Excellent Family Holiday! We had a fabulous time. The unit is clean and comfortable with all the amenities. but the best is location. Our kids absolutely loved it. Just cross the road and you are on beach that is suitable for all ages - surfing to toddler pool. Would definitely come back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better this time. This was our second and much longer visit. We had time to enjoy the comforts of Ocean Retreat more fully due to a couple of wet days!! The cottage and the whole surrounding area is just perfect. Well worth the trip from WA. Hope to be back again sometime.  Janet & Alan

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a lovely stay over 2 nights. The cottage was so close to the sea that we could hear the ocean. The house was cozy and private. The host, Peter was fantastic, made sure we everything was in order and even checked up to see if we had arrived as we arrived late night on Friday. Thanks for a wonderful stay and we will be back again soon!
