Ranked number One out of Five accommodation places in Aireys Inlet, "Trip Advisor 2012"
Perfect family holiday break. We decided to come here as we were after a quiet break from our noisy and busy lives in melbourne. We read the noise curfew signs and were very glad that everyone here was also here for a quiet break, all you can here in the evening is the sound of the waves crashing on the shore, not like at home where all you here are cars and sirens!!!.If you are after a place that is family orientated and very safe , this is the place. I would like to thank the Staff and Sue the Manager for all the effort that they put into the resort, the outdoor amenities are tidied and cleaned up every morning and night. There is a very welcoming and personnal approach to the Resort.

Great family break, villa was very spacious and the kids played outside all day! Lovely friendly atmosphere. Gorgeous birds everywhere.The staff are very approachable and relaxed, always ready to help you out. We will definatley be back.
Leanne and Ed November 2012
A most enjoyable, quiet and relaxing place to take the family on our first together holiday, grand parents also came along. My only suggestion would be to have a covered outdoor area for games such as: table tennis, billiards etc, as if the weather isn`t great then the kids can still go and play. A very trusting and welcoming feeling was felt from the staff and Manager on arrival.

Best stay ever! picked the right weekend, sunny and birdlife everywhere! The Manager was very thoughtful, we arrived late and when we got into our villa, the lights and heater were all on for us with a box of chocolates and a bottle of wine waiting on the table.
We`will definatley come back again Joan & Bruce August 2012
Extremely well set up with all amenities on site. Quiet and within walking distance to all assets of the Great Ocean Road area, Excellent value for money.

Couldn`t think of a thing to make it better,had a great time and the villa was lovely .
Heather June 2012
We had Villa 5 - slept a couple and two adults.
Comfy beds & lounge area although we weren't around long enough to bother with the TV or outdoor area. We had all our own food for breaky so the kitchen had all else required. The only fault we could see was that the shower was over the Spa which had quite high sides - a bit of a concern for older folk.
The Manager, Sue, couldn't have been more helpful - drove us to the township to meet a bus arranged for the wedding as we were all "lit up" in the high heels & the walk seemed a bit daunting. The pool & tennis court looked inviting & were well patronised by other guests. Jennifer Simpson April 2012
Filled in a survey at the Resort and stated that: the staff, level of cleanliness,amenities and maintenance, were all perfect, we will definately be back. David & Kate April 2012
Booked in for our first family holiday and had the best time ever.
Staff are so friendly here, obviously because its a great place to work, let alone holiday! Be back in 2 years for our next family break

Had a great family holiday here, the noise curfew is great as everyone is quiet by around 11pm, so you can get a great sleep listening to the waves crashing (unreal sound) My only suggestion is to get the pool heated as even though the kids didn`t mind, I would have had a heart attack diving into the cold water. Jenny & Ralph and Family March 2012
Our Arpartment was perfect,( bathroom needed a couple of repairs that we were told about,when we checked in).
Pool, Spa & tennis court all looked to be in great order and a pleasure to make use of. Feeding the birds was a great treat.
M & T Oct 2011
The Pet friendly villa was fantastic for us, it allowed us to have a holiday with our family ( we have no children).The rates were very well priced, the condition of the Resort is marvellous, everything is looked after so well, makes you feel like its your home away from home. We will definately be coming back! Thanks Sue

Best holiday in quite a while, relaxing, comfy and very clean. Staff and management were more than happy to help us out with fishing tips and local places to visit.

A hidden paradise. We now know where to come for a break from the busy life we live in Melb.
Jenny Warren March 2011
We would like to thank the Staff at the Getaway for making our stay very relaxing. Its a great place to come to in the winter months as the Gas log fires are very authentic and kept us really warm.
The O`Briens June 2011
Had a great stay down in Aireys Inlet, a dishwasher would have helped though (as we have 5 children) I soon bought paper plates and we had lots of b-b-q`s
We will definately be back!

Locals save Aireys Hotel!!! "http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/-1iwee.html
We first stayed at Aireys Inlet Getaway 6 years ago and have just enjoyed our 5th summer family holiday there with our 2 children. We think Aireys is the West Coast's best kept secret. You have both the Inlet and the surf beach to swim in, great beach walks and local activities, plus of course the tennis court, pool and spa. Being roughly half way between Lorne and Anglesea means everything is at your fingertips but without the crowds and the hustle and bustle of those large centres. You can stroll to the Aireys pub for dinner with the kids or be at Anglesea or Lorne within 15 minutes if you want; and then wander up to the local shops for a coffee, paper and breakfast first thing in the morning. The sound of the rolling surf as you go off to sleep at night is special.”
"A quiet well kept facility; we had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary. Your reception was very welcoming to us, thanks."
"Perfect way to spend the last day of our holiday! Thank you. Stay as you are, the "PERFECT RESORT"."
"Full length mirror in bedroom cupboard would have been handy. Cleanliness, Attitude of Staff and maintenance in general Very Good! Suggested to us by another accommodation that was full in the area."
Manager Response: "We have taken note and installed a mirror as you suggested. Many thanks for your feedback!"
"My partner Lea and I stayed with you in Apartment 10 for 4 nights recently and truly loved it! You have a very relaxing resort which allowed us to unwind and get into another space. The surrounding gardens are well landscaped and our apartment was just perfect, modern, and clean, everything we required. We also loved the cockatoos and other birds paying us a visit on our spacious balcony. And thanks go to you and your staff for your attentive, friendly service. We hope to come back again in the near future. Thanks so much!"
"Thanks Sue, we will definitely come back with the whole family next time. I will recommend this beautiful place to my family and friends, thanks for your kindness."
"Stayed here again, this is our fourth visit, the place just gets better every time we are here! Clean, tidy, new t.v`s, rugs and a lovely new lounge suite. Keep improving and we`ll keep coming back, would like to see the pool heated or just a bit warmer so I could go in with the kids and not have to sit and watch them, but on the whole a fantastic place to be anytime, a world of its own. Thanks Sue and staff, you make us guests feel very welcome.."
"The accommodation was very comfortable in a relaxed environment. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the whole township had a lovely friendly atmosphere. We would definitely recommend Aireys Inlet Getaway."
"The birds were great! Kids loved them."
THE MANSTAR FAMILY
"The Aireys Inlet Getaway offers the ideal environment in which to unwind. Enjoy the sounds of the ocean, stroll along the nearby beach, have a quiet BBQ and enjoy the spa."
"The Aireys Getaway resort is perfectly positioned near the beach, not far from the shops and only a short stroll to the historic lighthouse. It is well equipped with a spa, pool, tennis court and a sheltered BBQ; perfect for relaxing on a summer evening. Lots of birds (Cockatoos, Rosellas, etc.) will also be keeping you company. We find the accommodation offers an excellent combination of activities and relaxation for those wanting some time out of the city and in the great outdoors."
"We just finished our 6th stay at your beautiful resort, and we just wanted to let you know how much we enjoy it. Sue is a pleasure to deal with, nothing is too much trouble. The unit was as clean and lovely as always, the update looks great, only the same TV was a bit of a let down. We just love it."
Managers Response: We love to here of ways to improve our Resort, so we have listened again to our guests and bought new flat screen T.V`s with all digital stations now working.
Manager December 2010
"This is the second time we’ve stayed here. We hope to be back again. We were very comfortable and really enjoyed our stay. Thanks Sue for being a lovely host."

"Stayed June Long Weekend; A very peaceful, relaxing, refreshing and wonderful stay. A return is a must."
"A peaceful, relaxing, refreshing, wonderful stay. A return is a must."
"A group of 11 people stayed in Villa 2 & 3. These 2 villas were ideal for this amount of people with one of the villas having a much larger lounge/dining area for group meal times. The décor was very new and pleasing to the eye and both villas were extremely well equipped. The outside areas had plenty to do for all ages and consideration was given to guests as far as the BBQ and outside eating areas, with cooking tools and the likes provided by the resort. Value for money was excellent. We are rebooking for next year."
"We came by Aireys Inlet Getaway by accident. We’d been to Aireys Inlet for a day trip and decided to see if we could find overnight accommodation. What a great place we stumbled upon. The staff were very hospitable and friendly. They had a room ready for us within minutes of our enquiring about a vacancy. The 4 of us stayed in one of the deluxe cabins comfortably. The rooms are very beautifully decorated. All very modern. The huge corner spa and gas fire heater make you never want to leave. The rooms are so very clean. It’s a pity we couldn’t stay longer than a night. The well equipped kitchen and in room laundry facilities make for a very comfortable and affordable long stay. We went during low season- I’m certain we would need to book well in advance in the summer."
"We stayed at this beautiful serene resort for our honeymoon. Having just got married all l wanted was romantic time with my new husband, and the Aireys Inlet Getaway Resort was the perfect location. The villa oozed romance - fireplace, spa, nature, beautiful decor, beach walks, starry clear night sky, birds fluttering onto the balcony, privacy and our own lovely in room dining so we could stay in – a lot. I loved this place almost as much as l love my new husband. Thankyou so much to the manager Sue- for all those little touches -like making us Yanks feel like real Aussies, and the chocolates were so thoughtful. We will be back - hopefully every year for our anniversary."
"AIG is a wonderful place to get away to. The attention to detail in the apartments was terrific, right down to bird seed to feed the parrots! Clean, well located, we would (and hope to) certainly stay again."
"Excellent accommodation. This was our third stay at the Getaway. Great location and friendly staff. We will be booking again one day."
"We found the place very relaxing, being able to bring our dog was great too and hand feeding the birds on the veranda was fun for all. Definitely will come again."
"Our family have had the opportunity to stay at this lovely resort for a few years now and the experience just keeps getting better and better. The one thing that must be said is that you do feel like you're away in your own holiday house (and also have use of a pool, spa, tennis court and activities) even though there about 10 villa's on site. It must be the peaceful surroundings and the tranquillity of the area that brings the best out in people. The staff at the resort are extremely friendly and helpful which is a nice change to renting a house (with no help) or staying at a hotel. They really do go out of their way to help out. The only downside is that occasionally cars must travel through the resort to get to their villas (ever so slowly) but I must admit that this is a bonus when you offload/upload your car with your luggage. The family love the place so we will definitely be coming back and because of it's location you get to go to both Lorne and Anglesea/Torquay yet stay in a place which is not overpopulated."
STEVE & AMI
"Excellent accommodation. This was our 3rd stay at the Getaway. Great location and friendly staff. We will be booking again one day."
"Aireys Inlet is one of the most beautiful beach destinations in the world. All year round the spectacular ocean views and atmosphere capture your heart. My husband and l love it so much, that we got married and had our honeymoon there 14 years ago. My family have been staying every year for the past 15, at a wonderful place called "Aireys Inlet Getaway" Resort, What a fantastic find!!!!!!! It is sensational, the place has that "l just want to come back here" feeling. There are about 8 villas of different sizes, set in a wonderful huge garden, with a creek running through it. We stayed last time, in one of the luxury family Villa's. The kids loved it, they swam non stop in the pool, jumped in and out of the spa, played tennis and fed the friendly bird life. Spent hours on the beach, went horse riding. We have booked the place out on numerous occasions for family and friend reunions and had a ball. The local restaurants and town pub are also fantastic. The Getaway Resort is on the ocean side of the Great Ocean Road, and a 3 minute walk to the beach, lighthouse and bird sanctuary. The staff there are soooooooo lovely and friendly, which is one reason why we always go back there."
"Fantastic accommodation, service 100% happy and we have booked already to return next April."
"Great value, terrific location and wonderful staff. We will be back."
"Good facilities within the units, and the biggest bathroom I've ever seen! It's also quiet and private with no disturbances. The grounds are well kept and the swimming pool, spa and tennis court are great additions to the resort."
"Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Getaway. Excellent accommodation, very clean and very well furnished. Close to the beach and lighthouse great for a family holiday."
"It was a great place, with great people and we were lucky enough to get great weather…absolutely beautiful."
"The perfect family holiday - relaxation, activities aplenty, sun, surf, barbeques, and fab local food. We went with our whole extended family. Each of us had our own spacious villa. I was worried we would be bored because Aireys Inlet is a small town. But it turned out to be far better than staying within the crowds of nearby Lorne or Anglesea. The resort is centred around a pool and tennis court with gardens to run around in -so the kids were never bored and we could keep an eye on them. Also l loved being able to sneak off to the quiet privacy of our villa when l wanted to read a book or day time snooze. But other times we all gathered together in the barbeque area or headed off to one of the local restaurants. Surf club or pub - all of which were in walking distance. But my favourite place to hang out was on the spectacular beach (again walking distance)-where we flew kites, swam, fished and wandered up to the lighthouse cafe for cookies and a cuppa. Overall l would say -go stay - it will become your families favourite holiday - it has for us."
"It was excellent. Kevin was a fantastic host. He was on top of everything! It was the perfect location for touring the Great Ocean Road and area."
"Great place to stay with wonderful hosts. Beautiful accommodation, peaceful and just a great place to stay. Lovely surrounding area – perfect to unwind."
"We really enjoyed our weekend away at Aireys Inlet and plan on staying again in the near future. We loved feeding the birds on the balcony and the Conara kept us snug and warm."
