The Johanna Difference

Rural romance and beachside beauty are all part of the package when you book into Johanna Seaside Cottages. We aim to offer the finishing touches and attention to detail to take your holiday from run-of-the-mill to truly extraordinary.

Great Ocean Road Accommodation

Great Ocean Road Accommodation

Luxury Location

Our beach-front accommodation benefits from amazing views of stunning, secluded Johanna Beach. The cliffs have a spectacular rugged wildness. Great Ocean Road accommodation is in short supply so close to this isolated corner of the southwest, and here at Johanna Seaside Cottages, you’re in the thick of it. Short day treks from our pet-friendly accommodation encompass gorgeous deserted beaches, forest gullies, wildlife havens and towering cliff tops.

If you’re driving the Great Ocean Road, a stop at Johanna Seaside Cottages gives you the chance to make the most of what the landscape has to offer, some of it only accessible on foot along this dramatic stretch of unspoilt coastline.

The Simple Life

Johanna Seaside Cottages aren’t just another holiday complex. Each individual cottage is situated in splendid isolation, giving you real privacy. Despite this, they are all just metres from the sea and most have spectacular ocean views. If you’re looking for seaside accommodation with a pool, then you have found it. Johanna Seaside Cottages share a luxurious indoor heated pool.

Part of the Johanna difference is the opportunity to take advantage of staying on a farm. Gather free-range eggs from our chickens for breakfast, or harvest organic vegetables for a simple supper. If you don’t want to cook, we can take the stress out of self-catering by providing meals prepared by a local chef. By ordering a week in advance, you could have a meal ready whenever you return from the beach or hiking.

On cooler evenings, or to recover from the rigours of long-distance walking, take advantage of our indoor heated pool and spa facilities. Our dedicated in-house masseuse offers a range of therapies and treatments. Alternatively, curl up indoors with a glass of wine and spend time with your loved ones in front of a crackling wood fire.

Fun For All the Family

A holiday home doesn’t truly feel like home unless all of your family enjoys it. Our seaside cottages have roomy fenced yards for your pet’s and children’s safety. Each cottage has a unique character and offers total privacy, but if you come as a group, they are close enough together to make the most of a family break without living in each other’s pockets.

Our Farm House accommodates ten guests in four bedrooms for the ultimate big-group holiday. For a once-in-a-lifetime trip away with your nearest and dearest, you could also book additional cottages such as Glen View (sleeping eight) and Joanna, which accommodates a family of six. Smaller properties such as Glen Tara and Rivernook still comfortably sleep four people each, making them great for couples or young families.

Thirty-two friends and family, all well accommodated in beautiful surroundings: that is the Johanna difference. Call us on 03 5237 4242 to discuss your requirements, whether it’s a romantic weekend getaway or a family home away from home.
