With an outdoor and indoor spa, various outside seating areas and panoramic views, Avalon at Bella Vista Villas offers true escapism in a cottage style villa just minutes from Hepburn Springs and Daylesford. Enjoy the breathtaking views from both spas, enjoy a romantic moment by the wood burning fire, watch kangaroos graze, dine under the stars on your own secluded patio, or head to one of the renowned local pubs or restaurants.
“This is the best Air BnB we have ever stayed at. It had truly remarkable views from the decking area/spa where there was an abundance of wildlife to watch. The view of the sunsets from both the inside and outside spas was amazing. The layout and design of the villa are very well thought out - it is in the perfect location and having everything in the one space made for a very relaxing experience. My wife and I enjoyed a long weekend here taking in nature, relaxing, reading and enjoying BOTH spas (this is a big plus!). Elvira and Gareth left very clear and friendly instructions regarding the check-in/out process and operating the spa. We couldn't recommend this highly enough and are hoping to stay here again soon.”
We know we are not the cheapest accommodation on The Great Ocean Road, but we do believe we offer the best accommodation with the most amazing views! Feeling active? Then go for a walk on our 160 acre property where you can spot koalas, wallabies, alpacas and wildlife on our many walking tracks. Or wander along the miles of beach enjoying the peace and solitude along our coast, whilst watching for the whales, dolphins and seals that share our waters.
“Wow, what a fantastic place to stay. We spent 4 nights here and loved it. A fabulous cottage with amazing views, super comfortable beds and very well equipped with everything you need. Bryan was a great host and we loved the welcome bag of goodies. Thanks for having us, looking forward to coming back.”
Welcome to Bushies Love Shack. The naming of the love shack came about upon purchasing the property some 8 years ago. Fay's father, at the time 90 years of age, and his girlfriend, 91 years of age, automatically named it the Love Shack as they envisaged, once renovated, them sitting in bed, playing cards and taking in the view and so the name stuck. In keeping with the name, we have created a luxurious, romantic space for two.
“I wanted to take so time to write this review as after travelling all over the world I never new I would find such an incredible place just a few hours from home . Fay and Robert thank you for being so responsive, friendly and hospitable. Thank you for being accomodating by lending us the chains and extending the check out time but more importantly thank you for creating such a magnificent and magical place. I can’t express our gratitude enough to you for creating such a thoughtful and magical place . We didn’t want to leave. The Moroccan bath nights under stars were priceless . The bed was like sleeping on the clouds and the attention to every detail we were blown away by every corner of the shack was thoughtful designed for anyone to feel special . The decor was delightful and tasteful . Thank you for spoiling us with a cheese platter, wine and the amazing carrot muffins. The movie selections were also great and our morning walks around the property were breathtaking. This was one of the best experiences Ive had in my life and I will always treasure.I can’t wait to return to this little paradise .”
