During our trip along the Great Ocean Road we found this accomodation by chance. We stayed only one night, but it is unforgettable. Rita is a friendly host und it is a wonderful idea to offer a basket with all you need for breakfast. We stayed in the loft, which is fully equipped also for a longer stay. We told...

This place was comfortable and roomy, kitchen was great with everything you could want, goodies basket and breakfast provision second to none. The freshly made cake, made you feel like you were a very special guest in somebody's home. Very comfortable bed. Unit was great without being over the top and making you feel like you could not touch.

We spent one night here as part of our trip along The Great Ocean Road, taking the downstairs barn apartment. Everything was excellent - comfy bed, good breakfast basket, friendly owner, very quiet and peaceful location. Pity we couldn't stay longer! Also had our first introduction to the magpie robins in the area who serenaded us in the morning with...

Had a great 1 night stay. We had the ground floor of the converted barn, all nicely decorated. The open plan barn had a double bed, heater, living area with a sofa, flat screen TV and table/chairs. Well equipped kitchen area had oven with electric hob, microwave and fridge, as well as full stock of pots, pans and cutlery. There...

Adorable, clean, and warm remodeled barn with a fabulous shower! Rita packs a breakfast basket and you cook your own breakfast with delicious ingredients. Would be better with wifi and if you didn't have to wash your own dishes.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at this very pretty, uber color co-cordinated cottage type accommodation. The owner Rita is very warm and helpful. Short walk from the beach, and griffith island where we saw wallabies! Rita packs in a breakfast basket, and the kitchen is equipped enough to cook meals. Would love to have wifi, a bigger TV, and heating...

We stayed at the Coastal Barn last July and we liked the studio very much. It was very clean and really spacious, with a large lounge, a kitchen with all the necessary utensils and a very nice bathroom. Rita was away for the weekend but she left a nice note for us and we were welcomed by her husband. As...

Our stay in the loft was superb - a great experience in a beautifully decorated loft space. Rita was a very helpful and welcoming host - even providing us with some olive oil from her own kitchen to cook our kangaroo steaks! The breakfast basket was perfect - lovely bacon! This was the best accommodation, quality and value for money...

From the moment we pulled up and saw the quaint barn and rita's chickens roaming around the front garden we knew this was going to be a lovely experience. We stayed in the studio downstairs, which was beautifully furnished with everything you needed. The bath was quite large and fit two people comfortably, and the shower was also roomy, with...

“There are only two choices. Ground floor and 1st floor. There was no one upstairs when we stayed so all was quiet. Other reviewers have mentioned noise from the upper floor when staying in the ground floor. Our experience was perfect.”
