We never know why a guest is staying & what life experiences they have encountered or why their trip is special to them & our role is to ensure they have an exceptional experience from first contact point with us through the booking process, their stay & their departure & after care continued communication. The Great Ocean Road trip is already a magical experience on it’s own, so we want to keep the visitors standard as high as possible.

"We have now booked our accommodation in Apollo Bay several times over consecutive years with Lisa & Brooke from Great Ocean Road Escapes. I used to just book online with AirBnB but Lisa and Brooke offer me a fast, affordable service and answer all my queries (such as late checkouts and houses that allow dogs) with more options than an online service. I find it so easy booking through them that I start my holiday already relaxed"
