Our Location - A little bit about Ocean Grove

The bustling commercial and holiday centre of Ocean Grove is situated on the southern coast of the Bellarine Peninsula, separated by by the Barwon River from its twin coastal town of Barwon Heads.

Being the largest town outside of Geelong on the Bellarine Peninsula, Ocean Grove offers a wide selection of shopping facilities including major supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and speciality shops, spread between the main shopping strip near the coast along The Terrace and the Ocean Grove Marketplace shopping centre to the north on Shell Road.

Coastal attractions include the surf beaches which front Bass Strait and several walking tracks that offer good views along the beach. The focal point on Ocean Grove's main surf beach is the Dunes Cafe & Bar, next to the Surf Life Saving Club, which is surrounded by lawns, native gardens and bollards carved and painted into people depicting the life and times of the area. The Barwon River, near the river mouth, offers safe and sheltered swimming along its sandy shoreline, while further upstream is a jetty and boat ramp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful family home Everything you could ask for in a family home was made available. The home was suitable for our extended family get together accommodating 3 families comfortably. Excellent facilities left us wanting for nothing which resulted in a very enjoyable weekend. Would recommend this house to anyone and will definitely be back again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a winter weekend The pool table was a winner with the kids, didn't get to sit down playing constant games of pool! My elderly mum got to watch her beloved Cats on Foxtel, my eldest daughter had WiFi and we were warm and entertained all weekend. Thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific house, close to beach + extras Thanks to Stephanie and Justin for having us at their very well appointed beach retreat. Best family holiday we have had in years. Our two teenage sons were very happy to still have the mod cons of internet, foxtel and even a pool table. We spent lots of great family time and all had restful sleeps in the comfy beds. Great communication prior to check in. Just need to find time to come back for another relaxing getaway. Highly recommend.
