We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Highview Cottage with our older teenagers and will certainly come back as one our Son lives there also. Can not fault it. The weather was terrible but we felt warm and fuzzy once we got home. Thank you Johanna :) :)

Lovely home, beautifully decorated

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Highview Cottage. We arrived to find the heaters on which was most welcomed on a cold, windy day. The house had everything you could possibly need, it was neat, very clean and comfortable. Thanks so much John and Johanna, I'm sure we will be back again in the future.

Clean, welcoming house - great value

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was so clean and tidy that it felt like brand new. It had everything we needed as well as extras (such as games, books, kids' cups and plates, cheese knives etc). There was plenty of room for our group of 5 adults and 2 children and we felt right at home for our long weekend in Geelong. Can highly recommend.

Great Geelong stay!

  • 5 of 5

Highview is very conveniently located, close to shops, restaurants and Geelong centre. The house itself was very clean with comfortable beds and toys for the kids. Great yard, and a park up on the corner. Plenty of space for the 5 of us! Thanks for a great stay!
