We've just had the most picturesque time away at this place in Port Fairy. Gorgeous villa with spectacular views. Definitely coming back! We felt so comfortable and relaxed from day one. Everything was so clean and beautifully looked after. We all loved it.

We found the accomodation very clean, comfortable and modern. It had such amazing views of the sea!
The kids loved the quiet walks along the beach and exploring the rock pools.
We would stay again! Only regret is not booking for longer!!!

I'm going to simply stick to the facts.
The place was filthy.
Fresh skid marks in toilet. No joke.
Dust and grime over everything. The place looks like it's never been dusted or wiped down.
All switches were sticky.
Rear sliding door locks were broken, could not lock from outside so going to the beach was a pain.
Floors were covered in crumbs and other filth.
For the price you pay this was an absolute joke. Get your act together.

OMG the photos don’t do it justice , it is so close to the ocean on a beautiful spot on the beach , you have private access to. We saw whales this morning from the breakfast table!! The place has all the mod cons and yes the outside cleaning could be better and the heating in the bedroom didn’t work but you know what this is a little slice of heaven and I will be back.

We stayed in April 2018. The location is wonderful, right on the beach, so you can see and hear the waves crashing. The one bedroom villa was very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The courtyard area was pleasant and the bbq top of the range. The beach outside the villas is beautiful and secluded. You can walk for miles in either direction. Walking away from Port Fairy is particularly quiet. I only met one other person on the beach (another bird watcher). I could imagine in the warmer weather it might be a little more popular, though never crowded as access for the public isn't easy.
The villa is remotely managed so no onsite reception. This didn't worry us but not sure how they would handle any problems if they occurred. A couple of minor quibbles - the cleaning wasn't up to scratch for such a high end establishment, and having the shower over the spa makes access somewhat difficult.
