Good. Isolated.
Great for an isolated stay in the bush. Good for getting to the Apostles before all the masses arrive from Apollo Bay. Note that there are no restaurants nearby.

Very good 8.0
Tranquil and relaxing
Lovely, quiet location set among rolling green hills not far from the Twelve Apostles. Nice to sit on the balcony and watch the sun go down.

What's not to love?
Absolutely charming! We loved our stay at the Southern Anchorage Retreat. The view from our cabin was private and spectacular. We loved our couple of nights there. And it's perfectly situated, so close to the sights of the Great Ocean Road. Should we ever be back in the area, we'd be thrilled to stay here again..

Beautiful place, perfect location and great value!
This beautiful retreat is a short drive from the 12 apostles and nestled in the gorgeous countryside not far from the coast. Clean, spacious, comfortable and incredibly warm hosts made our stay hear the highlight of our trip. I only wish we had stayed a little longer. I highly reccomend this retreat!

Great cosy place
It was a very comfortable home-set B&B. The couple, the owners, were really nice and hospitable people. It is located in a very quiet corner off the tracks yet a 30 minute drive to Port Campbell. If you would like to really visit the great ocean road and visit it a few times in a visit, this is a good and comfortable place with a brilliant view. We caught the morning sunrise and the sunset. Also, you can go to the supermarket at Timboon or Port Campbell and return to prepare meals at the well-equipped kitchen available. I will come back again to stay longer. The only downside is that there's no wifi, but it was a great rest for us.
