Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We used Bay Vista over the recent Queen's Birthday long weekend. There were 7 adults and 1 child and we were all accommodated extremely well with plenty of space for all of us.The proximity to the centre of Geelong was great as we were continually going back and forth to a Convention being held there. At all times communication with the hosts was extremely prompt and nothing was too much trouble especially when we had to add a couple of extra days to our stay at the last minute. Would stay there again in a heartbeat! Thanks Amanda and Gary :)
