Skenes Creek is an idyllic retreat, located on Great Ocean Road 6km from Apollo Bay & approximately 40km from Lorne. Here, just above the junction of Skenes Creek Road and Old Coach Road you will find OCEAN RETREAT.
This self contained two bedroom Cottage which can accommodate 6 people has all the comforts of home, providing one Queen Size bed, two bunks (4 beds) and each room with views of the ocean.
Imagine having breakfast looking out to the ocean and listening to the sound of the sea, spending the day at the beach or at one of the surrounding attractions, and in the evening enjoy the BBQ on the deck, a walk along the beach, and a glass of wine while relaxing on the couch - what a perfect way to end the day.
Apollo Bay is only five minutes away by car; giving easy access to large variety of shops and restaurants to treat yourself to a meal, browse the shops or just have a walk around the town.
OCEAN RETREAT is just a 50 metre stroll away from the beach, with magnificent views across the Great Ocean Road and is a perfect location to relax and enjoy an affordable holiday or short break.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great location and everything you need We had a very enjoyable stay at Ocean Retreat. The cottage has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Everything is clean and in very good condition. The views from the living area and decking make you feel like you are really on holiday. Communication from the owners was excellent, covering all aspects of the stay. The location is perfect; close to the beach and a short drive, or long walk along the beach to Apollo Bay. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy customers Ocean Retreat was a very comfortable cottage - we had everything we needed. It is close to the beach where children can play safely in the surf. Although we had a few cold days it was very pleasant walking along the beach and lots to do in adjoining Apollo Bay which is only a few minutes away.
