Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic cottage with an amazing view! We had an amazing time at Thalasa Cottage... what with the views, the birdlife and the extremely comfortable cottage, it was very hard to leave when the time came! A fantastic place which we will definitely be visiting again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect. holiday house. Thalasa is the most fully and thoughtfully equipped holiday house that we have ever had the pleasure of renting. It is so easy to operate and is perfectly comfortable. All daily supplies are available in nearby Apollo Bay and good, safe dog walking beaches at Marengo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as it gets This was our 3rd visit to Thalassa Cottage. The cottage has everything you need without going over the top. Our Ripley had a lovely time down at the beach. Even when the weather turned against us we still enjoy every minute we had here. Thanks for such a comfortable & cosy place to stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thalassa Skenes Creek We love this little cottage and this is our 4th stay. It is always clean, fresh and welcoming. The view is to die for and there all the comforts of home, without being too overtop, like some properties. You instantly feel relaxed when you arrive - even the dog!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Beach House is a Slice of Heaven!!!!!! Imagine waking up to the crash of the surf with an unbelievable view of the ocean. Beautiful birds of several varieties come to visit every day. Walk to the local beach or get adventurous and walk to Apollo Bay along the beach route. This is the best place we have every stayed and we have been to Port Douglas, Noosa and Byron Bay... Thank you so much for such an awesome experience!!!
