Our Story

When Chocolate Gannets was built in the early 2000s, it was the first luxury accommodation on the Great Ocean Road and it was quite the sensation! In 2003, Chocolate Gannets won first place in the New Tourism Development category of the Victorian Tourism Awards – with Federation Square in Melbourne coming in second place!

We are the new owners of Chocolate Gannets, since September 2019, and we have loved every minute so far- even the challenging ones! Our focus is on providing high-end holiday accommodation in an idyllic location that we fell in love with the first time we visited as guests.

Although Chocolate Gannets Villas are self-contained, and guests check- in independently, we are easily accessible via email, phone call, text or Whatsapp messages. We live half of the week in Apollo Bay, so there are good chances that we will welcome you personally with our young children wanting to say hi!
We are delighted to welcome you to our little piece of paradise in Apollo Bay and are always available if you have any questions or concerns – feedback from guests is extremely important as we strive to make Chocolate Gannets a symbol of laid back luxury accommodation.
