My partner and I stayed at the Glenaire cottages over the weekend (20.5.2017). We were looking forward to a nice relaxing quiet weekend away and that's exactly what we got. We stayed at The lake cottage which was very cozy, clean and the views were absolutely amazing. The photos on the website don't do it justice!! We throughly enjoyed the...

Thank you. I could see when you left that you were both very chilled. Didn't you have the best weather?! Love it that you will be back. Don't let Winter put you off as snuggling in front of the fire after a bracing walk on the beach or through our rainforest is the best. See you next time

Glenaire Cottages are high on a ridge with views looking out to sea or across the property's private rainforest and to the hills and forest beyond. They're comfortable and cosy, with lovely views from indoors and out, excellent wood fires and ours had abspa bath on the veranda, so we could enjoy the outdoors while we soaked. Bo and Neil...

It sounds as though you absolutely made the most of the joys of the cottages & property. We are quick to respond to our guests needs when requested, but generally give our guests total privacy.

We had a very enjoyable weekend staying at Glenaire Cottages. We stayed in cove cottage which was very cozy, especially with the wood fire burning. Soaking in the outdoor spa with a glass of wine, while watching the birds and deer off the back deck was divine. The best part about it was that it was truly dog-friendly. They even...

Thanks for taking the time to review us & for the tips on the pillows. Out of the 5 pillows provided there are 3 different types. I have done that in the hope that different preferences would be catered for. I will return to the hunt for the perfect pillow as I'm also particular about neck comfort & suffer if...

Stayed as a couple, 28-30 April 2107.Our wish list for a retreat: wood fire; jacuzzi with a view; privacy. This place had it all. Lake cottage has new bathroom (including a walk-in shower), a well-equipped full size kitchen, and a spa bath on the deck. Views from spa bath and lounge of rainforest and ocean are better than the photos...

Thank you to Neil & Bo for our relaxing weekend away at their Forest Cottage. We had all the creature comforts we could have wanted.

Yep, it sure is a good feeling to have your canine pal along on your holidays away from home.

Consequently we strive to satisfy all of our guests.both 2 &...

After driving along the sensational Great Ocean Road, my partner and I were surprised with the beauty, cuteness and warmth of the Glenaire Cottage! Such a beautiful and clean cottage with an outstanding view of some country and sea. Great location if you want to travel around the Great Ocean Road with comfortable bedding! The spa topped it all off...

Charming cottages with real country feel. Stunning views over hills and sea. A lovely place to relax and wind down, with every comfort catered for. Shops about 15 minutes away, but lovely place to make your own dinner and sit and watch the sunset through the windows. Thank you for a delightful stay for us and our pets

We do try to think of everything!! The Cove Cottage is about to get a full makeover so by the end of August it will be even more comfortable & polished. The views? We are not messing with them, they stay as gorgeous as nature has made them. Warm regards Bo

This was our second time staying at the Cape Cottage (1 of the 4 Glenaire Cottages) and as before, we found it a relaxing haven away from the business of city life.

Thanks for your kind words Kristi. It was lovely to see your friendly faces again and such a joy to see Tugboat gleefully wagging his tail in the forest air. I believe a frisbee or two were left behind but Bo assures me they are on their way home. Cheers, Neil.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Inspired by nature, Glenaire Cottages are designed to offer a restful sanctuary, superb views and a taste of relaxed country living in a breathtakingly beautiful and peaceful setting. In winter, sit in front of a crackling log fire and watch the wild storms roll in across the Southern Ocean. In summer sit on the balcony, sip a refreshing ale, watch the birds, take in the fresh air and bask in the immense beauty of it all. We offer a choice of four spa cottages. All have outstanding ocean views, log fires and your comfort and privacy in mind. We are pet friendly and provide firewood, fresh flowers, romantic candles, all linen and can cater to your whims by arrangement. Satellite television, DVD, stereo, a covered veranda, undercover parking, gas BBQ and pet friendly yards are all included. Guided tours, transport, catering and special treats can be provided by prior arrangement.
