Pet friendly accommodation at Cape Otway on the Great Ocean Road.

Cape Otway Cottages are nestled just off the Great Ocean Road and offer best in pet friendly accommodation in the Otways.

Located very close to the Great Ocean Walk and Aire River, these beautiful dog friendly cottages are only a short drive from Apollo Bay restaurants and wonderful year round dog friendly beaches.

Just an hours' drive from the Twelve Apostles, Cape Otway Cottages is set on 60 acres of bushland at the foot of the Otway Ranges and is ideal as a quiet retreat for couples. The four very secluded cottages are all 3-400 metres apart and separated by native bushland.

The individually sited Spa Studio Cottages on our property are each placed in their own different environments. MoonRise Cottage is in a beautiful eucalypt glade with some quite large trees and a magical native background surrounding the cottage, as well as glimpses of the Otway foothills through the bush. MoonLight Cottage has the most open view of our studios and is nestled into the stringy barks and grasstrees with a fantastic vista out across the Otway Ranges. GrassTrees Cottage is set high up on a stringy bark rise with clumps of grasstrees as well as interesting gnarled looking eucalypts, placing the cottage in a very private enchanted forest setting.

The Spa studios all have a large sunken corner Spa bath near the Wood Fire, a King-size Bed and a separate bathroom with a large shower and double vanity. A wide deck runs along two sides of each cottage and features BBQ facilities and outdoor furniture.

Relax and enjoy the spectacular views across the Otways, secluded luxury and a crackling Wood Fire, while your pet enjoys a comfy dog bed next to the fire, pet towels and yummy natural dog food treats on their pillow.

The Dunes Homestead is set within natural parkland and rolling lawns atop 60 acres of native bushland at Cape Otway Cottages, in beautiful Hordern Vale, Cape Otway. Centrally located to the Great Ocean Road and the Great Ocean Walk, this truly luxurious dog friendly retreat offers privacy and luxury, with breathtaking views.

Looking over the Otway National Park treetops, this luxury hilltop three bedroom house has unparalleled 180 degree views of the Otways and the Aire River valley. See wedge-tailed eagles hover outside the huge picture windows or relax on the deck and admire the sunset over the Aire River sand dunes.

The high vaulted ceilings of the spacious living area are complimented by panoramic views and natural light through huge picture windows. The beautifully coloured Grampians sandstone walls, testament to the ancient craft of stonemasonry, complement a double sided Wood Fire and Karri floors throughout the house.

The gourmet kitchen features a Rosieres 'Paul Bocuse' gas stove with double electric ovens and wok burner, commercial coffee machine, dishwasher, microwave, glassed coolroom and an excellent selection of cookery equipment. This is a kitchen that was made for cooking and entertaining.
