Need a winter getaway? Hideaway Cottage is the ideal romantic rural retreat set amongst the tall gum trees of the historic Otway’s. This is an incredible destination for elevating your senses and escaping the hustle and bustle of life. This gorgeous hand crafted mud brick home is full of character and just 15 minutes outside of Apollo Bay on the Great Ocean Road. Come curl up infront of the fire.

The space
Surrounded by resident koalas, large variety of birds and views across the Otway Ranges it’s the perfect little weekend retreat to get away from it all. Welcome to your digital detox.

The main Hideaway Cottage spreads over two levels with an open plan kitchen dining and lounge filled with creature comforts and a wood burning stove that will be set ready for you to snuggle up to. Relax on the comfortable leather lounge and enjoy the north facing French doors that open up to the pergola covered terrace with magnificent views across the garden to the Otway Ranges. Under the pergola the hammock swings lazily, beckoning guests to lay back and take in the relaxing atmosphere. A Scandia Combustion stove and antler chandelier are strong features of the fully equipped kitchen. A staircase carved from Tasmanian oak leads you to the two bedrooms on the second floor with beautiful sunrises seen from the master and the feel of being nestled at the top of the gum trees from the second bedroom. The bedrooms are adjoined by a partition which is perfect for families with young children.

For those who need more space or bookings larger than 4 guests, for an extra charge of $50 you will have access to the Tuck-Away Cabin. Nestled within the ferns sleeps a further three to four guests. This rustic cosy wood cabin is perfect for the teenagers seeking their own space with friends, including heater, TV and a large selection of DVDs. Located approximately 40m from the main cottage, this is not included in when booking the entire property. The Tuck-away Cabin is not ever booked separately to other guests- only as overflow from your booking.

I hope you're hungry! We have recently added a built-in outdoor Pizza oven, fire pit and BBQ. The garden boasts many fruit and ornamental trees, including apple, olive, hazelnut, avocado, walnut, nectarine, oak, bunya and woolamai pines, beech, flowering cherry and flowering gum. For young families, a tree fort, swing and plenty of areas of the garden await to be explored, including the glow worms just outside of the property.

From the property you can access via a short drive the beautiful beaches of Apollo Bay or continue along the Great Ocean Road and take in the grandeur of the Twelve Apostles.

Guest access
The key safe is outside the front door, upon booking you will be sent the code for the key safe to allow access to the house.

Other things to note
The drive is approximately 15 minutes outside Apollo Bay, it is on a narrow unsealed road, so just be prepared to take your time and it is probably better to try and drive during daylight hours as then you will get to see the Koalas, kangaroos and rabbits.

Pets are allowed at the property for a $45 fee per pet. Pets must be confirmed and paid for prior to arrival.

This house is perfect for a digital cleanse, there are some reception black spots but you can receive Telstra connection. Other carriers may have issues.

All rubbish and waste must be removed from the property by each guest by the end of their booking as there is no rubbish collection on Killala Road. I suggest you take your daily rubbish into town with you so it doesn't accumulate. If it is a large quantity you can take to the transfer station at 10-18 Arthur Court, Apollo Bay or you can use the public bins on the along the foreshore. We proviode plenty of bags for you. Failier to comply with this policy will result in an extra charge.
