Get away from it all and yet be only a 5 minute drive to the beach Go from beach to rainforest in 5 minutes by driving a few kilometres from Apollo Bay's pristine beach. A delightful drive alongside the Barham River thru lush countryside will bring you to '605 Paradise' - A cosy and comfortable house set amidst beautiful gardens and orchard and acres of rainforest. It is nestled in the valley behind Apollo Bay on the edge of the Barham River and is surrounded by green hills, giant ferns and old rainforest trees. Only a mere 7 kms to the centre of Apollo Bay and the beach and yet secluded and immensely private.

The house is only metres to the popular and amptly named 'Paradise' - a beautiful picnic area and watering hole under an ancient tree fern canopy. The 'Paradise' carpark is also the start of an easy 40 min return walk or 10 min drive to 'Mariners Falls'.

A thoroughly relaxing environment with an abundance of bird life. The garden has a resident Bower bird and you may even see him collecting his blue 'treasures' to bring to his intricate nest, which he has hidden in the garden. The house comprises of a well equiped kitchen, 3 bedrooms, bathroom, large laundry and a comfortable lounge - all with garden views. Doonas with covers are supplied, as are pillows but no pillow cases, sheets, towels and tea towels. There are two options regarding linen. Guests can supply their own or we can arrange for linen to be supplied at an extra cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful views, peaceful and comfortable. We had a very relaxing time and really enjoyed the stunning views out every window of the beautiful garden and native surrounds. Very comfortable and peaceful retreat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Not close to the sea, it's on the mountain site. Suggested to bring your own blankets, and the visitors will have to take away the rubbish or there will be some charges. Otherwise it's a pretty good place for family holidays

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Getaway Location Great location and very peaceful. Amenities are a little dated but everything was clean and operational. So wonderful to be virtually in the forest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another wonderful stay in paradise Another wonderful stay in paradise. A clean, comfortable and cosy older style (which is part of it's charm) cottage, set in the middle of a beautiful established garden. We love the fact that it is so secluded, yet only minutes from Apollo Bay. We feel lucky to have found Paradise 605 and always look forward to our next visit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Charming Location and Peaceful We enjoyed our 3 day stay and especially the birds and the sheep that roam around. You can hear the water from the creek down below and enjoy the gorgeous rainforest and its surroundings. The township is close by but far enough away from it all. Lots of Cows, sheep, Horses, Birds, Koalas to be seen around in different areas of the Great Ocean Road. Even though the house is very old and needs a good renovation, the surroundings made up for the historic residence. Very Clean inside, but a musty smell lingers in one of the bedrooms, presumably water damage.
