We stayed over Easter and had a great stay! Arriving late, Doug left the key in the door and lights on! The cottage had everything we need, fully equipped kitchen, comfy couches, wood-fire, TV, shared BBQ area, lots of space for our dog to run. The bed was extremely comfy and the property was peaceful! There are no fences, so... More

Arrived at the cottages and met Doug who was very accommodating. Cute little cottages situated ten minutes from the main town of Lorne. Nice and quiet, very serene. Decent kitchen but would have liked to see some basic cooking staples like pepper and oil. Only decaf coffee which was a bit strange. The water was also very brown and we... More

Banksia Cottages has a magic to it. Settled in amongst the Otway forest of glorious gum trees, it took me staright back to my childhood. The cottages are clean and cosy with great beds and you sleep like a baby....it's soooo quiet. The down side is the ants in the kitchen and the poor tv and internet reception. Given I... More

A terrific option for couples with fur babies. Ten minutes inland from Lorne, this proved to be a breath of fresh air - literally - as it's surrounded by beautiful bush land. Perfect for escaping the hustle & bustle of town during the summer peak season. The chalet was very well presented, with plenty of space. The front porch a... More

The cottage was clean and well laid out. The beds were very comfortable and linen clean and fresh. It is a good size considering there were 4 adults and two large dogs. The surrounds were peaceful and beautiful. Judging by our pets expressions they thoroughly loved the open wide space bordered safely by trees. They enjoyed roaming the green and... More

Banksia is about a 10 minute drive from Lorne along a windy forest road, easy to miss the sign so keep your eyes peeled for it. The cottage is simply furnished, pretty clean and the beds were comfortable. Could have done with a few more home comforts as it's not a cheap option, some decent coffee not sachets and herbal...

Stayed at the dog friendly cottage for a weekend. The cottages were nestled peacefully in the Otways to ensure peace and privacy without.the hustle and bustle and busyness of Lorne. Lorne is about 10 minute drive through windy roads so be prepared to accept this if you want to go into town regularly. The cottage was spotlessly clean but a... More

It's great that you were able to appreciate the mood of the surroundings here. i do apologise for the shortage of toiletries and tea, coffee and sugar. These should always be topped up as a matter of course. i will look into the why the TV did not work. More

The cottage was clean and though small, really well laid out to meet the needs of a family of five. The basic needs are all met including a kitchen which probably could do with refreshing of kitchen utensils etc.The surrounds are really pretty and peaceful with Fairy wrens flitting around on the front porch every so often. The location is... More

Bird watching is one of our favourite past-times and the birds appreciate the environment we provide. the list of bird species on the property is a long one and we were visited by a flock of firetails this week! Golden whistlers and thrushes have a most melodic call. More
