3 bedroom townhouse Ticks all the boxes, great views, large rooms easy to get to quiet. Room to park your boat at the front door as well. Great spot to stay for the field days. If it had foxtel would be 10/10.

Everything about this place is great. The units are well appointed, very clean and well maintained. The setting is beautiful and so relaxing. Most of all the service is friendly and very welcoming. Our entire family loved it. The township had some good eating options as well - we look forward to coming back. Please add a gym.

What a beautiful part of Victoria! Everything you need, including friendly managers, are here at Captains Cove. Our townhouse was even better than pictured, with vinyl floorboards and grey lounges. We were truly able to relax and unwind with friends and have the boat parked out the front, cook our meals, sleep comfortably and have BBQ's. Only improvement would be...

Booked for two nights here, was a very spacious 3 bedroom townhouse although just two of us. Well appointed, clean and quiet, with a great outlook over the canals. Would highly recommend Captains Cove, although not much to offer in Paynesville food wise on the nights we were there ( tuesday and Wednesday)

We had two nights back staying at the "Cove". Both ladies on reception were friendly. The two storey apartment was spacious and looked out onto the water. Sitting back enjoying the the bird life. It also had a washing machine. The only down side were the pillows, they were very hard.

My husband and I stayed here over the Melbourne Cup long weekend for 4 nights. The lady at reception, on arrival, was very friendly and helpful. We hadn't been to Paynesville, so she gave us a map and tourist brochure. The 3 bedroom, furnished townhouse we stayed in was very well appointed. Out the back, all townhouses had 2 decks,...

We stayed here for 3 nights recently with 2 adults and 2 children. I would definitely recommend to any families in the area. The apartments were clean and well stocked with everything you would need.
