The Great Ocean Road is one of the world’s great scenic drives. But sometimes you need to stop, admire the scenery and just let the road continue on.
We couldn’t think of a better place to relax and soak in the salt air than Stephanie’s at Onion Bay. Midway between Wye River and Apollo Bay, Onion Bay is one of those secluded beachside hamlets seemingly hidden from the real world.
The Seascape Room at Stephanie’s is romance personified. This spacious self-contained suite has dramatic 180-degree ocean views from the private deck, the lounge area and even from the luxuriously comfy bed. There are thick curtains, but why bother when nature’s cinematography can be so enthralling? There’s a barbecue deck out the back with hill views and your private entry leads down to the herb and veggie garden.
If you are travelling with friends, book the charming Carisbrook Room that features another private deck with Otway Ranges views. New to the collection is the downstairs Garden Room, which is perfect for couples wanting privacy and space – the outdoor undercover patio is particularly welcoming on a warm day.
And we’ve kept the best secret until last: the private track hidden among the Ti-trees that takes you to the sandy and usually secluded beach. But ssshhhh, don’t tell anyone else!
