“Loved, loved, loved the Old Timboon Library Apartment. Timboon is such a cute little town and only 20min drive from the Twelve Apostles. The Timboon Railway Shed Distillery is only a short walk away from the apartment and is fantastic for a bite to eat or drink. The apartment its self is super funky, clean and includes all the amenities you would need. I just wish we could have stayed longer! David is a great host and easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend this apartment to everyone!” – Kelly, January 2016

“Lovely apartment in a fabulous location. Cool retro furniture and a comfortable bed. A short drive to Port Campbell and the Twelve Apostles from Timboon. We’d be happy to stay here again and David was a lovely, accommodating and flexible host. Many thanks for having us!” – Larissa, January 2016

“It was a great experience! The house was clean and tidy, beds were very comfy. Kitchen and bathroom were great too. And on top of all that David was very helpful,he replied immediately to our queries even at 6 am. It was a great stay.” – Farhan, January 2016

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen people be more pleasantly surprised when they walk into an overnight rental than my fellow travellers were with this one! I had already seen the pics so I knew it was going to be good. Upon arriving at the apartment the exterior completely masks what lies beyond. It’s a really comfortable little place with wood flooring, good quality furniture and lovely new bathroom with brilliant shower. David was in contact beforehand with comprehensive instructions for our arrival. Timboon is a quirky little country town and made for a special stay, especially for those who are looking for something different to the usual GOR surfer towns. We browsed round the distillery the following morning before we left and did some tasting. Also dropped in to the Apostle Whey Cheesery and GORGE Chocolates before we turned back east to Melbourne. They’re both pretty small but we enjoyed visiting and supporting them. Recommended.” –  Pippa, January 2016

“The old Timboon library apartment is stylishly furnished and impeccably presented. The location is great for visiting the whiskey distillery, cafes and pub or you can cook in the well equipped kitchen. I wish I could have stayed a bit longer!” – Andrea, December 2015

“This is one of the best places we’ve stayed in. Despite being there in very hot summer days the place stayed cool even without the airconditioning. The rooms are large, have high ceilings and are very comfortable. It was great for us with a toddler because there were no breakables in reach. Great location to see the 12 (or 8) Apostles – about 15 min to Port Campbell which has a lovely sheltered swimming beach. Timboon is a small village but with everything you need – the local pool was great for a swim. David’s done a great job with this listing – highly recommended!” – Ric, December 2015

“Fab apartment in a lovely little town. We were passing through and stopped for a night in Timboon, David’s place was just what we needed. Comfy beds, clean and fresh with a great bathroom. We didn’t use the kitchen much but it appeared to contain everything. David made the whole process very smooth and while we didn’t meet him, he was on hand via text both before and during our trip (great for those on mobile roaming plans!)” – Helen, December 2015

“My boyfriend and I travelled the great ocean road from Melbourne and Timboon was our final destination before turning back east and heading home. David’s apartment in Timboon was an awesome find and the town had so much character. We wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else and we can’t wait to visit Timboon again! Thanks for a seamless, cozy, enjoyable stay.” – Andi

“What a great find! Timboon and the Old Library Apartments was a terrific combination for a much needed break away. David’s apartment was clean, comfortable and well set out. Within walking distance of The Distillery, supplier for all things gastronomical, and within a handy distance to Port Campbell, you would be hard pressed to find a more convenient spot. Timboon has a great feel….a neat township and warm, friendly locals. Highly recommend a visit!What a great find!

“Our bike ride yesterday to Cobden and back was fantastic. Just been to the berry farm. A great weekend. Thanks”. Caroline

“We loved our stay at the apartment. Great decor and beautiful setting! Thanks, Bee”

“The property exceeded our expectations! It was bright, clean and comfortable. Located in the centre of Timboon, it is within easy walking distance of the Distillery and other great eateries in the area. Its in such a delightfully quiet setting too. David is an excellent host. He was prompt in replying to our initial inquiry, provided us with access details long in advance of the visit and checked in by text while we were there to make sure everything was to our liking. We’d have no hesitation recommending David or the apartment to future visitors.

“Dear David


We loved Timboon. What a fabulous little town! The locals were very friendly and we enjoyed eating at the Fat Cow and the Distillery.  Our stay at the Creek apartments was great.  It was quiet and comfortable” – Susan

“Clean, cosy, comfortable and central! We did the pub for dinner, Railway shed distillery for brunch and walked the rail trail. All very pleasant and was lovely to relax back at our accommodation. Highly recommend” – Carolyn

“The house is really nice, modern (inside) and cosy and has everything you need for a pleasant stay. The directions sent to is were understandable and answering all possible questions you might have. I would definitely recommend this place to stay for my friends or other people who want to visit GOR and stay in a nice place which will make their trip even more enjoyable.”

“We spent two nights in Timboon while visiting Great Ocean Road with my family over the Christmas weekend. While booking place to stay I was searching for a place where four adults (one couple, two separate people) would be feeling comfortable in one house and this house was a great solution. “

“This cottage at Timboon was lovely. The beds were comfortable and we loved the spare doona in the TV cupboard to snuggle up with watching television. The location is a great base for the whole of the Foodie-artisan circuit down to Port Campbell and local area with easy access to the 12 Apostles and the Great Ocean Road. We much preferred the quieter pace of Timboon for our family.”

“We stayed at Timboon for only a night while we were doing the Great Ocean Road drive. Timboon was such a lovely town and the accommodation was perfect and more than what we could ask for. David was quick with his response and was helpful with any questions or more information. Would definitely recommend it!”

“Thanks David – Myself & Izumi’s parents stayed 1 night on our driving tour of western Victoria. The accommodation is clean & tidy, homely yet private, comfortable & welcoming. The accommodation is ideally located in the middle of town, literally 2-minute walk to supermarket, pub, bank, bakery, whiskey distillery, everything… River walk at the door step is very nice too. Very happy to recommend this host & accommodation. Mark, Katsuyuki & Michiko”

“My family and I really enjoyed our stay at David’s apartment in Timboon. The place was well equipped (even to prepare an Easter roast!), it’s a stone’s throw from the Timboon Distillery, and it’s perfectly situated for a journey along the Great Ocean Road. I would highly recommend David’s apartment to anyone traveling in the area.”
