WOW!! What an experience. The delightful, funny, off-site hosts welcomed us in person, waiting for our late arrival, and baked us a fresh loaf of tantalising bread which we devoured. The house we were in was like a dreamy dolls house, enlarged. Everything you could imagine or should expect from and b and b but Johanna raises the bar and shifts the goal posts. Amazing decor, spotless, huge spa, soft towels, nic nacs and thorough thought put into all the items one may need. Without peer in the area. Set amid your dream garden with sea views. A quiet and cool night in the middle of a hot summer. A MUST STAY!

Room Tip: All mini-houses are excellent.

We stayed in Cove cottage with our dogs over the Christmas break. The cottage was spotlessly clean, lots of provision left for us which was a bonus including freshly baked bread. The setting was lovely with a distant view of the sea, lots of bird life, all in all a great place to stay. Graham and Lisda were very hospitable, would definitely recommend.

Blue Johanna is a bit off the main road for those travelling on Great Ocean Road. However, it is a good location as it is an hour from twelve apostles and not too far off from Apollo Bay. It is in a forest reserve area. We were allocated a cottage that was not adjacent to the reception. The cottage itself was delightful. There is a sleeping area with comfortable beds and pillows. Bathrooms are clean and nice. We had asked for a spa room and we had a jacuzzi in the bath room. Bathroom supplied are in plenty. Host Graham was waiting for us to turn up and settle us in as we were a bot like 7 30 PM getting in. There is a sitting area, a kitchen with an oven cum hot plate. Microwave is available as well. We had travelled with some food and we were able to make our dinner. There was also a fireplace, not a classical one but adequate. We went on a cold day. we were tempted to make a fire but figured out that the inverter A/C and electric blanket did the trick. Night, we had frogs making sounds but the morning was birds chirping. Delightful and fibrous home made bread was made available with plenty of butter and jams and corn flakes, eggs etc to make your own breakfast. check out was simple. Attention to detail in every little aspect made this special for us. Thanks to the Graham couple who run this place.

We visited Blue Johanna Cottages over Easter and stayed in the Spa Suite B&B. The spa was the biggest one we've come across so far, very comfy for 2 people to share. The comfortable bedroom was separated from the small kitchenette by a door, which is a feature we always like when getting away, in case one of us gets up before the other. The continental breakfast was impressive and too much for us to eat. We could have had a huge loaf of freshly baked bread every day (we just had one white, which was delicious, although don't usually eat white bread - they also do sourdough and German). They provided 6 fresh eggs daily, plus a big packet of bacon (which we don't eat), yoghurt, fruit, oats, cornflakes, wheetbix, real coffee, juice, selection of teas, hot chocolate, fresh milk,(they also provide soy milk on demand), butter, selection of jams, honey and peanut butter and noodle pots. And since it was Easter, they threw in a large box of chocolates and hot cross buns. There is a large, very clean BBQ out the back with beautiful seaside views from the deck, which made for a lovely place to have our breakfast one sunny morning. Since we are with Optus, we had no phone or internet connection, but if you want to get away from it all for a few days, this is perfect. Apollo Bay is a pleasant 35 minute drive away and Blue Johanna beach is 5 km down the road. I would highly recommend to anyone who is seeking a quiet getaway with lovely hosts and peaceful surroundings.
