We stayed 1 night. These houses are very nicely appointed with jacuzzi bath and are well placed right at the beach. All restaurants and supermarkets can be reached by foot. However, remarkable was the very friendly welcome by the hosts.

We stayed here for two nights on our return trip from Sydney to Perth. We have stayed at a number of different places and while Rayvile was quite comfortable I just thought it was a bit too sterile. There was none of that home away from home feeling but if that's not what you're after then it's definitely adequate. All... More

Stayed here for a single night as part of our drive down the GOR, Apollo Bay is approximately halfway so this is a good place to break the journey. Booked the Penthouse, which is above the Reception, as it was the same price as first floor apartment. The extra room was useful as we could spread out and relax. As... More

Very very cute villas (we were in a so-called Loft). The wood fires were divine. Their Spa in the villa was divine. The direct beach walks were divine. The restaurant (Casalingo) was divine. The atmosphere in-midst of this beautiful little town was ... you guessed it ... "divine"!

Very romantic Vila to stay overnight. Apollo bay is the heart spot of great ocean road, therefore me and my boyfriend decided to book a getaway weekend. I have to say Rayville Boat Houses is a well presented accommodation, everything inside the room is extremely clean and modern. The location is great, only 2 mins walking distance to the beach...

The house I stayed is very cleaned, the spa in particular. While it is close to the beach, it is tranquil inside the house. I didn't expect that I could have such a good sleep at night, totally relaxed. The management is very nice, and they warmed up the house before I came. I will come next time in summar,... More

Great spot but very low on support. When you do see the lady from reception she is great but appears to only be there for a maximum 3 hours a day. A big tip is that if you need something plan ahead.

The accommodation is well located, in a very calm street, close to the beach. It is a perfect place to have a break and enjoy the comfort of the villa (spa, wood fire, washing machine,...) as well as the wonderful landscapes of the Great Ocean Road !
