This was such a beautiful place ...

This was such a beautiful place located in the atmosphere of tranquility - in the middle of the majestic Otway national park. Coming from Melbourne, being surrounded by tall majestic trees and the sounds of wildlife and light rain was the perfect getaway and gave us the recharge we needed. We did not have an itinerary planned so following Laurence's recommendations and straightforward directions via a document provided was extremely helpful. The place was well-heated and well-equipped with an easy to use fire place. The filtered rainwater system was really efficient as well - we enjoyed the hot showers and it tasted great as drinking water. Thank you for having us Laurence!

We had the best time.

'We had the best time. The two bedroom home was perfect for our family of three. It had everything we needed. The beds, pillows and chairs were incredibly comfortable. Sufficient bedding. The woodfire was a perfect way to end the day, rugging up on the couch with one of many amazing range of books provided. I highly recommend staying here if you're looking to relax in a beautiful home, in the perfect location. Thank you Laurence, we appreciate the effort that goes into your property.'

one of the best Airbnbs we’ve been to (and we’ve been to many!)

"This is one of the best Airbnbs we’ve been to (and we’ve been to many!). The rainforest surrounding makes the stay so peaceful and calm. We brought our little pup there and he enjoyed it as much as us, running around the vast greens surrounding the house. The house itself was built purposefully, beautifully and very clean. There was cereals provided for breakfast, milk and all cutleries should you choose to cook or have bbq. So generous with the heaters as well which felt amazing in this cold Melbourne weather. We will definitely be back!"

The property is just spectacular

'This was a truly beautiful stay. The property is just specatular. Towering gums, green green grass, stunning views and not only that but we saw Black Cockatoos, King Parrots, Crimson Rosellas and a few Koalas in the trees. The room itself is cozy, really comfortable and has everything you need for a fantastic stay. Recommended to the highest regard. We will be back!'

Our stay was perfect

"Our stay was perfect at the Otway Nest. It was quiet and secluded. Beautiful gardens. Room was super clean and bed was very comfy. The walk in shower and the luxe bath robes were great. Laurence was a great communicator and provided good info on the area. Recommend treating yourself to a stay at the Otway Nest."
