Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good property We only stayed for a night. House inside is great, however, could not keep my car inside due to lack of space. Had to park my car outside the whole night. (Pinches when you have a new expensive car).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent property Great place to stay..there is a pub directly next door to it very local but we diecuded to spend most of our time in the forrest brewery which is amazing definitely worth a trip to forrest just for that. Very easy to find. We did have a big problem with ants in the kitchen and in the drawers which wasnt very nice when your trying to prepare food. The house also smelt damp. Small.issues really. But overall a very clean house we enjoyed our stay. We stayed jan 2016.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Property when I was looking for a place to stay this definately stood out, nice property and ecxcellent location. The owners were receptive to my families needs and it all went smoothly. We stayed on the day of The #chasethedog event which we were participants of . It was so nice to just roll out of bed to the start line.A easy stroll to coffee shop and foerrest brewery where we enjoyed a meal. Very comfortable beds and great selection od DVDs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything we needed... My kids and I had a really lovely weekend at Otways Forrest Retreat. The house is bright, clean and appears to be recently refurbished. Cooking marshmallows over the fire pit was the highlight for the kids - I enjoyed reading the paper on the deck. I also appreciated the selection of DVDs, which catered for old and young alike. Marg was very easy to deal with. We'll be back!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No interest from owner in fixing issues Basil faulty has nothing on this place. We arrived and there was a note from the owner saying if it was any problem to call, so we did ! (22 times) and not once did we receive a call back, every single time a text message came back. The TV didn't work, we were there for three days so we would ring, get an answering machine and then we get a text saying it doesn’t work because of storms (it was blue sky outside), ring again, another text, someone will come and fix it (no one did), another text, went on for 2 hours. This place must be run from India. The electric blanket in the bedroom worked on one side and not the other. One of the coffee cups looked like it had never been washed, there were spiders in the main living room. If an owner has no interest in their guests they deserve a bad rating. Just pick the phone up !
