The Great Otway Rainforest Family Retreat offers in one package, our two luxury accommodation areas, just metres apart, for larger families or groups - up to six people. The Otway Haven suits up to four - and an infant too - and The Otway Nest is a couple's retreat. Set in beautiful gardens and surrounded by rainforest, the Retreat is a perfect sanctuary to relax, and as a base to explore the Otways National Park, the Great Ocean Road and the beautiful nearby towns and villages.
The Great Otway Rainforest Family Retreat has two separate accommodation areas (The Otway Haven, and The Otway Nest) just metres apart and connected by a garden path.
Combined, they can accommodate up to six people, plus an infant. Please note that the two dining areas accommodate two people each, so a larger group will not be able to dine together, though there are several outdoor dining areas available.
Parents could stay, for example, in The Otway Nest, and up to four children in The Otway Haven.
Both areas are linked to our main home, though they are both private, secure and self-contained.
(Pets are usually welcome, too, though please discuss your pets with us before booking).
The Retreat is peaceful, quiet and private, set in gorgeous gardens, and surrounded by rainforest and farm paddocks. Guests are delighted with the serenity, tranquility, the fresh air and the birdlife and wildlife.
Boutique in design yet rich in detail and amenity, both accommodation spaces are accessed by private entrances into lovely rooms with highlight windows capturing glorious views of ancient rainforest trees.
All three bedrooms feature luxury queen beds with electric blankets, linen, four pillows, doonas, quilts and blankets, and storage and clothes hanging space.
As well as two televisions and WiFi, there are board games, a small library, binoculars for birdwatching and umbrellas.
The two ensuite bathrooms include showers, soft Egyptian cotton bath towels, soaps and shampoos, and hair dryers.
The two comprehensive kitchenettes feature an oven and grill, hotplates, fridges, microwaves, coffee makers and milk frothers, toasters and kettles, and have plentiful crockery, cutlery, glassware, utensils etc. We also provide complimentary provisions such as cereals, oats, milk, eggs, jams, tea, Nespresso coffee, oils, mustards and so on.
There's also bicycle storage available if you wish, a Weber BBQ with full LPG tank and all BBQ accessories, a petanque set, and a variety of bicycles to borrow for both adults and children.
Pets may be welcome, however as we have sheep and alpacas in neighbouring paddocks, please discuss your pets with us before making a firm booking.
