Great Ocean Stays - Accessible Stays




There are many places to stay on the Bellarine, but how many have full disability, wheelchair access with all the modern amenities of a high end resort & offer a pet friendly experience too!

At Great Ocean Stays we provide you with a home away from home, and we have in house services to ensure your stay is relaxing and memorable


“Our vision is to create a region that is inclusive of all people, to inspire other tourism operators to think about their own businesses around accessible travel, and to encourage everyone to embrace sustainable change.”    Christine Smith, Manager of Great Ocean Stays, and Director at Tourism Greater Geelong & The Bellarine.


Founded in 2007, Great Ocean Stays is a holiday rental and property management service offering boutique accommodation on the Bellarine Peninsular. Long before Airbnb, we advertised ocean-side accommodation through an easy to view online booking website, whatever the specialist needs of the prospective guest.


We were one of the first to introduce pet friendly rentals during a period when they were almost unheard of. Within 18 months we won a national award through a popular tourism website for Best National Pet Friendly Holiday Home.  The same year saw King Tide Townhouse win Best Luxury Home.

We continue to lead and inspire tourism operators in the region to exceed the expectations of the traveler with service excellence.


As part of our commitment to provide inclusive travel and service, we have purpose built a complex of accessible holiday homes in the heart of Ocean Grove. Our build philosophy was to present adaptable homes that respond effectively to the needs of all by providing beautiful accessible spaces.  Completed in 2015, these are a welcome addition to the region and a step forward in providing a focus on The Bellarine as being a hot spot for accessible tourism, just as the region is known for it's fabulous beaches, wineries and food! 


We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula soon!
