Tranquility Amongst the Trees

Car packed with our two pups – we were both really excited for a little weekend escape. We arrived within a few hours to Apollo Bay, both very keen to explore the property. We walked up to the top of the path and waiting for us was this gorgeous little cabin amongst the tree. The cosy atmosphere of the cabin was definitely complimented by a lovely heated room on arrival, a very welcoming touch on a chilly winters day.

The rain decided to change our plans for the afternoon, however being inside a place with such scenic views made it feel like heaven! We were not complaining about an afternoon cuddled up with the dogs.

The next morning we woke early with the sunrise to check out Marengo reef. Our pups loved stretching their legs while the sun rose – creating the most gorgeous photo opportunities. We then dropped the pups off and decided to take a drive into the Hopetoun Waterfalls. After an easy walk down through the rainforest we arrived at the stunning falls!

A sunset walk on the beach and a cooked meal in the cabin was the perfect way to end our day.

Overall The Studio was such a brilliant spot to unwind and the fact we could share it with our beloved dogs made it the most perfect weekend!
