Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful House We had a lovely time staying in this beautiful house, it was like a home away from home. It had all the essentials for a getaway with friends, including a lovely spa on the back deck. The grass area is a nice space to especially when the sun is out. Not to mention the entertainment including foxtel, netflix and internet. You couldn't really ask for a better spot. If I could change anything it would be the time the spa took to heat up, and the distance to the beach. Thanks for having us to stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Retreat for a Girls Weekend! We wanted a lovely winter beach getaway for the weekend that was convenient to Melbourne, and Californian Cottage was it! It has a wonderful layout with everything you could need appliance-wise. The gas heater kept us toasty, great couches to sink into, fantastic kitchen and bench top and the spa...oh the spa! An easy walk to a beach access and nice yard area. 10 minute walk to Woolworths and some great takeaway or delivery options if you don't want to cook. Comfy beds as well. Had a great time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just beautiful. Everything you need & more I have had the pleasure off staying in this property twice and have come back and booked again for another weekend. Whilst I normally stay as on business it's like home from home with its relaxed atmosphere. Really wouldn't stay anywhere else and the owners of this property are very accomodating to your needs.
