Lovely family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a few years ago and are now looking to return with our slightly bigger little family. Lovely hosts, very clean and well maintained home and very affordable. Cubby and chooks were a huge hit with the kids. Our eldest hasn't stopped asking us to head back. We love Coppards Rest!

Owner's Response: Dearest Leah, Thank you so very much for your wonderful review. We would love to have you come stay with us again. You need to come and see the new kitchen and bathroom. We have recently moved the caravan cubby to an extension of the back deck too. Photos will be published soon. I am looking forward to hearing from you again soon. Linda and Paul

WORST STAY EVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 1 of 5

BEWARE OF THIS PROPERTY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OWNERS LIVE IN BACK HOUSE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Backyard was full of chook Feces and was meant for our dogs but unusable.

Owner was the worst host we have ever experienced, we felt that she was not pleasant at all often quite rude and lurking around and invading our privacy, when we would go out, she would enter the property and snoop around, we did not like to go outside because the owner was often lurking and watching us.


seems that other people have also mentioned that the owner has a problem with certain people.

felt totally awkward and wanted to leave immediately,

advertised as dog friendly but owner seemed to have many issues with dogs,

Owner's Response: To anyone who reads this review, please also take the time to read some of the other 40 very positive reviews. They speak volumes for me and my beautiful house. Ross Barnett and his friend Tim arrived with 3 dogs and had not notifed me before their arrival of this. There is a secure front yard for dogs which has direct access into the house. I never allow dogs into the back yard where the chickens are housed. I asked them not to allow the dogs onto the furniture. On 2 occasions that I know of they left all 3 dogs inside the house and went out for the day. As a consequence the dogs had no choice but to relieve themselves in my house. I only went into the house during their stay once and that was to let the dogs outside because they were very distresse and to cleaned the living room floor. I did not enter any other room. Fortunately I was able to organise a carpet cleaner to come on Boxing Day to clean the carpets and the house was immaculate again ready for the next guests. I no longer accept pets to stay.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely host and great accommodation. We had a girls trip with lovely little luxuries and a great place to relax. Chickens gave us lovely fresh eggs and it was close to all in Geelong without being stuck in the craziness of a city. Easy access to anywhere we wanted to go. Definitely a place to return to

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is a very clean & comfortable place. Linda is a good hostess. The house is pleasantly decorated without being cluttered. The beds are very comfortable, and there is heating & cooling to make it even more comfy. The gardens are nice & there are secure areas for both pets & small children. The chickens are amusing, as they appear out of nowhere when you walk on the deck. The location is good as it is only a short drive to the beach a city. The house is on a large block and the surrounding properties are also large and treed.
