Good 6.0
Overpriced and underwhelming
Spent two nights at the Boathouse and was a little disappointed with my stay. First off, the code that was emailed to me to access to the home was incorrect, and the front office was closed. We waited almost half an hour to find someone that could assist. When we entered the house, the clean towels were missing, and I found dirty towels and dirty socks left in the laundry. The bin also was dirty and had rubbish left over underneath the liner, and the TV didn't work. The house needs a good scrub and looks very tired. The best part of the property is that it is a good location, only 5 mins walk to the main part of Apollo Bay, however it is still nice and quiet. Communication prior to stay via email was great but the accommodation itself was a letdown and would not stay again.

Boathouse in suburbia .. Expected better ..
Boathouse = water & views, but not in this case .. It's suburbia and disappointing. The view is of your driveway and a wall, as you are one of 12 double storey cottages on the block, nicely located 5min walk from the water and town. Reception staff are very friendly, however reception is only open from 2.30pm to 6.30pm. The cottage itself is nothing special, open plan lounge/dining, kitchen & only bathroom with a huge spa, but you need to step over the high lip to get into the shower .. Not good if you have little kids or mobility issues. The 2 spacious bedrooms are upstairs, but if you need to go to the bathroom during the night, it's downstairs! For us, it's overpriced and there are probably cheaper equal/ better choices with views, elsewhere. Did not like the self checkout sheet, where it was mentioned not cleaning dishes/ emptying bins could incur a $20.00 fee!

Really enjoyed my family stay here.
Really enjoyed my family stay here. Was looking for somewhere to stay that represented the area and found it at Rayville. A beach house type stay. We had unit 9 with two bedrooms and a bathroom downstairs, living area upstairs. Had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Loved the loan games, DVDs and books etc available for a lazy afternoon. Within walking distance to main street. Would look forward to returning to Rayville on my next trip to Apollo Bay and recommend for a family get a away. Was private yet still part of the holiday neighbours around us. Totally loved the no key access, no waiting to sign in etc. Wifi great.

Good accommodation in convenient location
We stopped over for one night on a Great Ocean Road trip - a party of five adults. The location is excellent, with a 5min walk to shops and restaurants. Accommodation is clean and spacious, with queen, double and twin bedrooms and one bathroom downstairs. Lounge, dining room and balcony with great view are upstairs. Furniture and decor was a bit tired and could do with a make-over. However, considering it is a three bedroom house and is probably most used by families with kids, some wear and tear is inevitable. The young couple that managed the properties were very friendly and helpful. We made a good choice.

SO much to like but for the little gremlins.
Lovely peacefull location. Close walk to town and beach. Staff (Steph and Nick) polite and friendly. Our apartment (loft) was spacious and well designed. So much to like. BUT... How about replacing the dish washing brush and sponge. Both were well past use by date with the brush encrusted in filth. Our downstairs bed had 4 pillows so we slept well. The upstairs beds only had one pillow each which were more pancake flat. Our boys had a terrible sleep. The spa tap leeks which didn't bother us but it's a sign that attention to maintenance is poor. We would stay there again as the positives outweighed the negatives.
