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.

We thoroughly enjoyed out stay. The property was well maintained, with all appliances working and the view was fantastic. It was very peaceful stay and we had great fun. They also had information on all the surrounding activities and good collection of DVDs, Books and games. This is one holiday home that I would prefer staying whenever I think of Great Ocean Road again. Thank you for making out holiday so memorable.

Fantastic little haven!!!
I would highly recommend this little piece of heaven! It has everything you need for your stay. What an absolutely stunning view. We were greeted with a rainbow every morning its breathtaking! And a quick stroll across the road for walks on the beach. The house is perfect and cosy and my family and I loved our 4 days there. Wish is was for longer! Peter is a great host - thank you for making this stay great!

We had a wonderful five day stay at Ocean Retreat. The view and proximity to the beach was outstanding and everything we needed was in the unit. My family relaxed so much with walks on the beach, fishing close by and playing in the sand. Thanks so much.
