When we visited the weather was pretty awful - 45mm of rain over 3 days with gale force winds. So it was great to have a warm and comfortable place to retreat to after getting soaked. It was also lovely to sit in the lounge and watch the scudding rain though the picture window. We stayed in Riverside apartment. It was very spacious, airy, clean, and very well equipped. The breakfast provisions were quite generous. The situation is ideal for doing the Great Ocean Walk sections around Glenaire - you can walk up to Castle Cove. It's not too far to drive to Cape Otway, Apollo Bay or Johanna. If you must be "connected" then make sure you're with Telstra. We were and we had no problems with reception. A couple of very minor quibbles - the BBQ wouldn't self-ignite so was difficult to use and the TV is too small to see from the lounge chairs.

Bruce was a great host and the Walker's Lodge was more than I had expected--roomy, with a very generous collection of breakfast supplies tucked into the fridge. Bruce's son brews delicious beer which is available for sale. At the national park campground down the road there are koalas, the seashore in this area is stunning, and the valley setting made for a lovely sunrise. It's definitely off the grid--no guest internet and only marginal cell service from Telstra (I was out of luck with Vodafone). If you really can't unlug and aren't on Telstra, it's just a short drive to better reception--but why?

What a great location in the otways, just a couple of hundred metres from a quiet secluded beach. We went fishing, saw waterfalls, had dinner on the beach at the mouth of the river and walked parts of the spectacular great ocean walk. All that is just 1 weekend, we'll definitely have to go back. The accommodation was modern and super clean and the host was very happy to share all his local tips. Definite 5 stars!!!

The retreat is well positioned for day walks and exploring the region. The hosts provided breakfast supplies and a well stocked kitchen. Very clean and comfortable. We did the Johanna beach walk, aire river estuary, Princetown to twelve apostles and Otway national park walks. Proximity to Apollo bay is handy.
