Our Best Accommodation at Great Ocean Road – Alkina Lodge
This secluded private lodge is suitable for people who truly want to recharge and escape back to nature without disturbance. A perfect sanctuary to unwind from the hustle and bustle of city life. Lodge managers, Jordan and Cindy were very hospitable and knowledgable of the surrounding, they made sure the fireplace was always burning and shared with us wild koala bears sighting spots. The lodge is very well designed with sleek, modern bathroom fittings and kitchen appliances. Our fav hangout was definitely the cosy wood fireplace where we huddled around every night to talk about everything under the stars or to watch those wild kangaroos roaming freely around the compound.
We slept like babies at Alkina lodge, the beds were super comfortable and most importantly no traffic noise! Peace! Exactly just what we needed! Bedrooms are intentionally designed to allow natural light to rouse you from your beauty sleep, therefore, a sleeping mask is highly recommended if you intend to sleep in. Budding home chef like Pin will fall in love with the fully equipped high-end kitchen, where you can cook up a storm for your friends and family.
Our Best Eats in and around Melbourne
We celebrated Chris’s aka Britney’s birthday here. We reckon this is the best restaurant in Apollo Bay. Brilliant service coupled with yummy food and great company, what more could we ask for?
A cosy laid back cafe in quaint Timboon which serves up comforting dishes sourced from local fresh produce.
Pauline loves pizzas! In order to satisfy her cravings, we located this brilliant pizza joint in Melbourne. The pizzas here are amazing! Reservation is necessary as this is a rather popular joint in Melbourne. Tartufata Pizza is a must-order in our opinion.
Authentic Italian restaurant hand-picked by our dear friend, David. The house wine is not to be missed if you like wine pairing with those yummy food.
