Loved our stay at Johanna Seaside Cottages. We got to feed the chickens and harvest fresh veggies and herbs from the veggie garden. We got fresh eggs from the chickens too! The owners were very kind to prepare a dozen of eggs in the fridge for us already. The air was fresh and the house was clean and well equipped...

Spent two nights in Glen Tara as a mini-moon getaway following our wedding. Clean and tidy, cosy and comfortable, we had everything we needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a few days and really unwind. Only a short walk to the beach to keep the dog busy and plenty of fire wood to...

It's always a pleasure staying at Johanna Seaside (our home away from home) so family friendly kids loved the indoor heated pool, loved the walk to the beach and the warmth of the cottage. Can't wait to be back next yr!!

We had a wonderful relaxing family time. We did out shopping in apollo bay which is expensive and then went to the cottage to cook and relax - enjoy the beautiful surroundings. We walked to the beach, loved it

This is a wonderful place. The Farmhouse is cosy, very comfortable and well set up for proper self catering - plenty of everything and a large fridge. You can collect fresh eggs and forage in the kitchen garden for herbs and veggies - which we did! It's a really peaceful place with beautiful views and a short stroll to Johanna...

Being able to raid the vegetable garden and the complimentary fresh eggs from the chooks was...
