“Enjoyed a coffee while watching a school of dolphins”
“I haven’t had a chance to get onto facebook, but as per our previous visit, we had a fantastic time, enjoying the sun this time rather than the rain and cold, but regardless, both times were a very enjoyable stay. It was nice also on the second morning to be having a coffee on the front deck and then calling the kids to come and watch a school of dolphins as they swam from apparently Lorne way to Apollo Bay. Thank you once again”

“Please always stay this PERFECT”
“Perfect night away. The weather was cold and rainy. The sun never came out, but none of it mattered. The views, the fantastic fire and the beautiful apartments made it a great night away. Apartment 14 is wonderful and I am going to ask for it each time I come back, and ‘we will be back’. Actually had fun reading the comments of others who have been here. It’s a wonderful idea. Please always stay this PERFECT.”

“This was the most memorable part of our stay”
“We just had 3 nights at Whitecrest and just wanted to say thank you. What a fantastic location, accommodation was excellent and the facilities were great. Due to my role in the CFA we get very few holidays away together as a family and although we were away for 9 days and nights along the coast and in Melbourne, we would have to say that this was the most memorable part of our stay. We will definitely be back again even if for 4 nights, just to relax and spend family time together, again, thank you.”
“Never got over hearing the sounds of the crashing waves-day and night”

“A wonderful place to have a family reunion”
“A wonderful place to have a family reunion for a few days. Family from WA, England, Melbourne and Castlemaine. As always views and Great Ocean Rd superb – also Apollo Bay. A very special and happy time spent here. The help from staff was outstanding as was the cleanliness and furnishings.”

“Thank You! We’ve had an amazing time here in room 13. We decided to cook dinner in each night as it was much more comfortable and appealing than heading out.

“All the wonders of our world all rolled into one magnificent place”
“All the wonders of our world all rolled into one magnificent place, view to die for, air so clean you could bottle it. So lovely to have the birds at our door step when we wake, the bees humming past the flowers when we walk, the sound of the ocean gently whispering past our ears as the evening comes to an end. What a way to spend a weekend.”

Exquisite location, breathtaking views. Thank you for an absolutely lovely holiday accommodation. The house is beautifully designed, thoughtfully equipped and furnished with taste.

Thanks for the lovely stay! Pity we only booked one night-we’d have loved to stay longer!
We enjoyed the good weather this weekend. Because the place is well equipped (oven, plates, salt etc.) we could cook a good dinner and enjoyed breakfast on the front porch.

Such a great place to be and what a view! Thank you for thinking of all the little ‘extras’! Pity about the weather, but hey that meant we could use the gas log fire. My partner and I really felt relaxed and refreshed. Will be back!!!

To Whitecrest Management
Your accommodation has gorgeous views with all the facilities and amenities in arms reach. We loved our stay in your gorgeous and spacious villas. Thank you so very much for the warmest hospitality, most especially to Vicki. We celebrated my Dad’s birthday away from Melbourne, and Vicki made sure we had the best and most comfortable villa. Her customer service is nothing short of fantastic! We will definitely be returning here in the future and will make sure to recommend your accommodation.
Keep up the good work!
More power to you!

Really enjoyed our stay. Well equipped apartment. Beautiful views, plenty of wildlife. Would certainly return.
David & Angela
Fantastic spot with lovely views. High spec accommodation which we would recommend to others. We need to return when the clouds have gone, the sun is beaming in blue skies and temperatures are up another 10C. Would love to be here when the whales come wandering by too.

“My happy place”
Thank you for a wonderful stay! Re-charging the batteries. The most comfortable bed ever!
This is definitely my happy place.
The sound of the crashing waves has got to be the most relaxing sound to go to sleep to and the most wonderful sound to wake up to. And there are the views. I can’t wait to come back!
Heidi Faber, Hoppers Crossing,
We can’t say in words how wonderful this place has been. Lovely and secluded, beautiful views, calming and relaxing environment.
It was a bit cold for swimming, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and still saw heaps of natural wonders! Our only regret is not being able to stay longer…
We definitely plan to come back soon and stay longer.
Thanks for a great experience.
Mel & James

“Pretty cool spot”
Pretty cool spot. We were only here for a few days but it was nice to get away from the city life. The surrounding areas are beautiful. Would like to come back, as this place has more to offer than I thought. The fire place and crashing waves are very soothing and relaxing. I saw my first koala, ‘drop bear’ in the wild yesterday. Thanks for letting us stay at your place. It’s been very nice.

This is a very great trip for my family. Your place is very beautiful place and very comfortable, I love it so much.
A sea side view & a hilly back ground for a wonderful Luxurious house. This house has come closest to what a dream house would be. It was a amazing experience living here.
This cannot be more perfect. Will definitely look for to come here again.
A short but very sweet stop over. Worth it for the sea views and sounds alone. Well appointed apartment, clean and comfy. Wish we had longer.
Keith & Suzanne
Thank you for a wonderful place. We just love the sound of the ocean every morning. Having breakfast at the balcony while watching the sunrise is priceless. We would also like to thank the management for extending our check out time for the Great Ocean Road Marathon! We will come back and will be staying here again.
Benz & Faza
We loved the apartment with its great views and spacious rooms. The playroom is also ideal for teens when times get a bit bored in the evening. Would definitely come back.
We have loved our stay here. Superb accommodation and wonderful views-we will definitely be recommending Whitecrest to our family and friends and will be back next time we are lucky enough to be in this part of the world.

Such a gorgeous villa, and beautifully set up, with a great welcome.

“Piece of Paradise”
Made some great memories! So glad we chose to stay here. Very peaceful and ‘an amazing view’. Enjoyed the facilities-pool table, table tennis and tennis court. Apartment immediately felt homely-everything was nice and clean and kitchen was very well stocked. Great to have a washing machine too. Bed was amazingly comfortable and it was fantastic to be able to look out the windows in the morning. We are both leaving very relaxed although sad to be leaving this little piece of paradise behind. We will highly recommend Whitecrest to our friends & family. Thank you so much. Till next time ..!!
