Treat yourself to an unforgettable experience on the Great Ocean Road.
Seacroft Estate is an historic former monastery set on 25 acres overlooking the Great Ocean Road with 180 degree ocean views.
Enjoy a peaceful rural setting in a place of incredible natural beauty just 15 minutes drive from the popular coastal town of Apollo Bay.
Seacroft Estate has historic self-contained spaces, economical private rooms with shared facilities and unique experiences including our treehouse and lotus belle glamping tent.
Our various accommodation can sleep around 60 people, and is also available for group bookings and special events.
Enjoy our stunning views, lawns, gardens and beachfront access.
Arriving on a rainy, cold winter's night to enter a warm cheery cottage was a perfect welcome, with everything we needed for our stay there.
Ocean views and ocean sounds made for a really good night's sleep. Being introduced to the family Alpaca's was an enjoyable bonus as well.
Many thanks for having us,
We look forward to a chance to return.
Would highly recommend staying here.
Rae and Les 😊
Did not face any issue during the stay.
Surely recommended! Its located only 15 minutes away from Apollo bay!
The price is comparable to cabins within Apollo Bay, but Sam's cottage offer much more privacy, cleanliness and charm.
It certain we will be staying in the Seacroft Estate on out next visit to Apollo bay.
Good value for a weekend away
Amazingly clean place on top of that. Thank you Sam!
The host accommodated an early check-in which was great. Beautiful views and close to the Bay, Lorne and forest.
TV and wifi connection would be an added advantage to spend the rainy days indoors.
Lovely escape for kids, especially if travelling with under 2 as there is a portacot and high cost available. A highlight would be the view out to front and the kids being able to pat a cows while looking out to the ocean.
One of my favourite details was the big healthy cows coming close by our window every day having a feed.
And a really really beautiful secluded stunning beach so close by (walking distance). Spent a whole day rock pooling and swimming- stuck by the awe of nature.
Also massive beautiful waterfalls very near by, very worth a look!!
Sam was very quick to respond with any questions, and her little space has all that you need for a lovely getaway.
Waking up with views of the bay, ocean and some friendly cows makes you feel like you’re forever away, but in reality you’re only 10mins to Kennett River and Apollo Bay making this a very convenient location.
Will definitely be returning in the future!
Host didnt meet in person but checkin was very easy as all instructions were given in the manual
The location is very good too. Nice beaches nearby
The view is absolutely stunning from the bedroom and lounge windows - I couldn’t stop staring at the superb sunset.
The cottage is sparkling clean and has everything necessary for two people.
The oven, full sized fridge, kettle, toaster and microwave were greatly appreciated.
The heaters in both lounge and bedroom (as well as combo fan/light/heater in bathroom) were toasty and necessary for the cold winter evening.
The shower has fantastic pressure and a great hot water system and the bath was lovely too.
The bed was cosy and warm and deliciously comfortable.
The location is superb, my son greatly enjoyed the trampoline and room to run around; and I couldn’t be more delighted with the view and ease of access to the beach.
Justine was such a lovely host; and I really look forward to staying again.
Unfortunately, there wasn't a lighter to turn on the gas stove/oven and the pilot light seemed to be out so I had to buy one at the nearby petrol station. Parking was also a bit challenging in the mornings as the only exit from the upper lot was blocked by other cars both mornings when I headed out.
No heating, except in the bathroom.
Kitchen and dining room was roomy, gas stove , all appliances were there but don't expect a modern kitchen. Easy check in and check out!
P.s A friendly man gave us a fresh fig as we were leaving, and it was very nice indeed.
And they had a bath tub
Thanks for your great facilities
The owners were very prompt in responding to our request to stay. However, we never met the owners so had no opportunity to learn any of the history.
Really comfortable and cozy. Everything you need for a short stay.
One more thing which pleasantly surprised us was that when we were leaving the place, we met Sam in person and he was an amazing guy, we had a very lovely talk about traveling. He gave us lot’s of interesting tips
