A beautiful cottage in a perfect location that allows dogs. Doesn’t get much better. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

Definitely a place worth a second visit.

The house was sitting at a great vantage point offering excellent views. Inside the house os really well appointed and comfortable. Did get some pretty wet weather coming off the bite so just be ready for some storm watching (really impressive to watch) wood heater was great at keeping the house nice and warm. Also had a 4g mobile broadband system with decent speeds so that helped when you couldn't go outside. Good full kitchen for meals or about 40 minutes down to Apollo Bay for dinner. Also and cannot stress this enough, complimentary fresh farm eggs. Great place if you're looking for a nice break away from it all. Definitely a place worth a second visit.

too short a stay

Another visit for is to this property. Another relaxing stay with walks on the beach through the farm. We loved our stay again but too short this time but still relaxing as before and very private. We will definetly arrange to stay longer next time. Our stay was the farmhouse this time which had everything supplied to enjoy the stay, just supply your food and drinks and sit back and relax. Our dog Forbes loved the beach, the walk through the farm and the large yard to run in. A huge plus that the property is so pet friendly with one of the few dog friendly beaches along the great ocean road and a spectacular one too. Thanks for another great get away even though a short one this time.

We stayed at the Glen View cottage which was perfect. Fire was lit for us when we arrived and had everything you could need. We had spectacular views over the fields and to Johanna beach. We took our staffy and she loved running around the property. Would have loved to have stayed longer and will definitely go back.

Beautifully maintained farm grounds and cottage with everything you need. Well equipped and spacious kitchen. Homely and comfortable. Brilliant log fire on a cold and wet winters night warmed the entire house and made for a cosy evening indoors. 
My dog was welcome and loved the freedom. 

The reading material about the local area, history and geology was very interesting.
The chook house and vegetable garden accessible to guests was an added unexpected treat.

My stay at the Rivernook cottage was bliss. The location is gorgeous and the cottages are beautiful and well appointed. Everything I needed was there. I wish I could've stayed longer and will definitely be back.
It's great to find a pet friendly accommodation like this where we felt so welcome.

Views that make your mornings special and soothing. Our pet loved to jump and run around. Beautiful location and fully equipped. Very accommodating owners and quiet location. Our second visit in two years and many more to come.

Great location with magic views. The cottage was well appointed and cosy. I didn't tire of looking at the rolling greens or a short stroll to our very own private picnic table displaying 180 degree views of the coastline.

Finally got to stay at Johanna Beach, have been visiting the area for years as my husband spent 4 years living in Lavers Hill as a young boy and we have always loved the region and its incredible views and scenery. Our stay in Johanna Cottage with our now grown up children was wonderful so peaceful and serene with fantastic views through the valley and to the ocean. Its great to watch the shadows on the hills and the changing light, it certainly is a special place. Fantastic that it is dog friendly too, good walks to the beach and there are so many other breathtaking and interesting things to see and do in the area. The Cottage was clean, cosy and comfortable and it was so relaxing sitting by the fire reading and every now and then staring at the view through the window. The Cottage is very well maintained and equipped and the beds comfy and warm. We had planned a meal in Apollo Bay one evening but everyone wanted to stay at the Cottage! Would highly recommend as a peaceful and relaxing place to stay, will be booking again for sure.

We schedule an annual trip to Johanna Seaside cottages and it never disappoints. We just love the serenity, sensational views and the magnificent beach that is just a short 10 minute walk from the accommodation. The cabins are extremely well maintained and every little detail has been considered...we stayed at Johanna cottage this time around and the recent renovations are fantastic. The fact that this is pet friendly is the icing on the cake for us. Whether it's a morning in front of the fire reading a book, an afternoon on the balcony enjoying the sunshine and sweeping views of the valley, a quick trip into Apollo Bay for a bite to eat, or one of the many walks that are right at your fingertips, this place really has it all and we can't wait to schedule our next holiday at Johanna Seaside.
