Not sure where to start but I guess, at the beginning is a very good place to start! From the moment my partner and I walked in to the time we left, we were in awe of firstly, the sheer beauty of the property. Then we were met by Claire whose family have owned this property

We recently stayed at Lonsdale Views in celebration of our anniversary at the recommendation of some friends. We were NOT disappointed! We were in the Sapphire apartment and the views were amazing. Views of the farm on one side and views to the lighthouse and ocean on the other.

Dear Mr President, be reassured, you will find your peace & solitude in Lonsdale Views. Be aware though, the approach along Gill Rd is undergoing roadworks at the moment. The property itself is in an immaculate condition. You already know that breakfast provided is continental but Claire, the hotel manager, has helpfully prepared files of nearby restaurants. We ourselves enjoyed taking away delicious local Aussie pizza / fish & chips from the shops on Hesse Road in Queenscliff .
