This provides the civilised way to do the Great Ocean Walk. We spent a week here with 2 other couples sharing a cottage and doing the entire GOW as day walks plus visited the Otway Fly, waterfalls, etc. You can either carpool or hire a minivan to drop you off & pick you up from any of the access points. Since the property adjoins Johanna Beach you can plan it so you walk back into the property on 2 of the days. Started most days with freshly laid eggs and finished with a swim in the pool or sitting on the porch with a glass or 3 admiring the view, prior to cooking dinner (with freshly picked veges and herbs) and relaxing in front of a raging fire. Sure beats camping in the rain. Will definitely stay here again.
A great place to stay away from the rat race. Stunning sweeping views of green hills and valleys along with with the roaring surf coast.
This is enhanced by the quality accomodation with all the little extras.
I nearly enjoyed this dog friendly property nearly as much as my pooch.
I challenge anyone to find one thing that Joy hasn’t already catered for in the self contained cottages. Dogs,children, fully stocked spotless units,views, privacy,tranquility,vegetables, fruit, herbs, eggs. Not to mention, immediate response to any maintance problem, a wealth of local knowledge especially about the GOW, a warm welcome and the ability to make you feel like you just belong there. Then there is position, position, position. A week is not long enough.
Johanna Seaside is located in the Otways beside Johanna Beach. This beautiful property is in the heart of the Otway National Park and close to the Otway Fly,
Triplet Falls and many other attractions.
The Great Ocean Walk is beside the property.
10 out of 10 for the wonderful property
This is the place that, when you walk in, it is like the waves of the nearby Johanna Blue Beach wash away the hussle and bussle of everday life…it’s like taking a very deep, calming breath. It doesn’t matter the time of the year, or the nature of the weather…it is all just beautiful and the feeling is always the same. AND, there is so much to see and do in such close proximity! When I think of the best times I have had with friends and family, I am usually thinking of times at johanna seaside cottages.
The views were magnificant. Looking out over the ocean watching the weather change as we lolled around with a lovely glass of bubbly. The cottage was exceptionally well appointed; roomy yet with a warm cosy feeling. The hosts certainly knew how to make our stay memorable. The location was ideal – not too far from Melbourne but far enough to make one feel one is in another world
