Enjoy the privacy of a fully self-contained cottage, set on one acre. Surrounded by farmland and the coastal scrub of Port Campbell National Park, the closest neighbours are a kilometre away in the little village of Princetown.

Explore the rugged coastline of the Shipwreck Coast and visit beaches off the beaten track.

The iconic 12 Apostles are a 2 minute drive from the house. See Gibson Steps and Loch Ard Gorge on your way to the sea side town of Port Campbell, just 10 minutes away. Port Campbell offers a safe swimming beach with lifeguards over the summer period, as well as cafes and a pub.

In the other direction, lies the village of Princetown and the mouth of the Gellibrand River where the locals swim.

A real get away

Southern Comfort is exactly that. Comfortable accommodation right near the Southern Ocean.

Situated on the famous Great Ocean Road, the cottage sits in an elevated position on the one acre block.

The Great Ocean Walk runs along the cliff up behind the property.

Parrots, eagles, swamp harriers and willy wagtails are often seen. Kangaroos and wallabies live up along the clifftop.

With no neighbours, feel free to be as noisy as you like. There's plenty of grassed area to play footy and cricket.

Enjoy stargazing on clear nights. With the closest lights over a kilometre away at Princetown, you'll be amazed at the darkness of the night sky and the clarity of the stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Great Ocean Road Accommodation This property is minutes from The 12 Apostles and The Gibson Steps. It's a great hideaway from the world. The kids loved exploring the property and we loved the tranquility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great family house We really enjoyed our stay in this family cottage - there was everything we needed and even managed to light the fire, bake a birthday cake and sit on the deck overlooking the wetlands. Princetown beach is superb and we'll definitely be back again. Thanks to Liz for answering my text about getting the oven going - we were able to enjoy a homemade birthday cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing Cottage We stayed here for a week just after our wedding, and it was the perfect place to be quiet and still for a bit. The house is small but comfortable. The living space is perfect. We spent the days exploring (the best cheese is at the Mouse Trap Cafe and dairy!), finding beaches and taking in the tourist attractions. The estuary is a beautiful place for a walk and the local pub has great (huge!) meals. We followed an animal track up to the areas above the house and found dozens of kangaroos. The owner's instructions to the local beach will take you on an adventure, but well worth it if your car has the clearance! The traffic on the road was a little busy in the afternoons, but in the mornings, evening and when inside, there is nothing but peace, quiet and birds! The bed is very comfortable and we made the most of the dvds at night, enjoying not being able to just turn on the TV at night! With the nearby estuary, it is good advice to bring the aerogard! We found it best to close the doors and windows just before sunset and that kept the mozzies out of the house. All in all, a great stay and would happily come back again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple 2 bedroom house with excellent views Great area, lovely house with heating and cooling. Simple old fashioned holiday accomodation with all you need and no frills. Right up against the back of the national park with loads of big grey kangaroos and little black wallabies. Great balcony to enjoy a quiet beer in the evening and even facility for an outside fire. The walking on the beach and in the old growth forest of the otways is simply world class. Even has tenuous internet coverage for emails and your paper. What more do you want???

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic location. Great holiday. We enjoyed a fantastic holiday at Southern Comfort. Located just minutes from the Twelve Apostles the house provides the perfect base for exploring the sites of the Great Ocean Road. While small and simple, the house is comfortable and well-equipped for an enjoyable family holiday. Set well back from the road and surrounded by trees, there's no noise (and no neighbours) to disturb the peace. We had to persuade the kids to leave the house and garden (with its kangaroos) in order to enjoy the spectacular scenery of the local area and we faced a sit-down strike when it came time to pack up and leave! The owners communicated promptly throughout.
