Welcome, skip to the content.

Paradise Gardens Cottages are found within a beautiful rainforest valley, only ten minutes from Apollo Bay.

The luxurious and charming self-contained cottages have been designed for couples who want a special getaway.

Built over an ornamental lake and affording wonderful views of the water and surrounding farmland and bushland, you can enjoy a quiet drink or cuppa on the deck and watch the abundant birdlife.

Plum Tree Cottage has two bedrooms that can be divided into two separate units, and Twisted Willow Cottage has one bedroom.

Nicely appointed and with wonderful natural light, they feature living/dining areas, fully equipped kitchens with dishwashers, air-conditioning, wood fires, king and queen beds, ensuites with spas, cathedral ceilings, ceiling fans and external decks with barbecue. A communal laundry is also available.

Over the time of running the accommodation, the owners have received many accolades from their guests and have many return visitors. Guests can enjoy visiting the nearby Marriners waterfalls and view the glow-worms at night. It is the best of both worlds with rainforest surrounds but only minutes from the ocean.

Please view their website for further information on Paradise Gardens Cottages.
