Classic retro Aussie beach shack. A comfortable and relaxed house with beautiful water views, secluded and surrounded by the bush. A local haven for Koalas and birds. A peaceful base to explore everything the Great Ocean Road has to offer.
A classic Australian 60's style beach house. Right across the road from the ocean with great views, this cosy little shack is open plan, light and bright, retaining it's original style and furnished in a relaxed retro style. Located on the Great Ocean road half way between Lorne and Apollo Bay. It's the perfect location to explore all of the attractions along the road or just kick back and enjoy the peace of the surrounding forest, walks on the beach and look for the many Koalas and beautiful birds that hang out in the trees here.
There are only 10 houses in this lovely secluded spot so you can really get to enjoy an Aussie beach/bush setting. There's a great open fireplace for cosy winter stays and a bar-b-que and outdoor table and sunbeds for summer.
The house has a fully equipped kitchen, TV,DVD player and internet access.
The closest cafe is at Kennet River (2 minutes by car) and there is a great cafe and gourmet pub for meals at Wye River (12 mins drive).
The house has a queensize bed, tucked behind the fireplace, where you can wake up to the sunrise over the sea.
The open plan design means that the house is ideal for a couple. But for larger groups there is a bungalow in the back yard with a double bed and a single bed.
Please note that the house is in original un-renovated condition. It is comfortable and has lots of retro charm but if you are looking for 'hotel style' accomodation it is probably not for you.
The house with all it's facilities. If you book for more than two people you will also have access to the bungalow.
I am usually not there when guests are staying. It is important that you read the information regarding finding and accessing the house before you arrive as there is limited mobile phone and internet access in the area so you may find it difficult to contact me if you have a problem.
IN WINTER you may want to use the fireplace. There is firewood under the front balcony. There is a flue for the fireplace which you release by pulling on the chain hanging down the chimney so that the smoke can escape.
IN SUMMER you may want to pull the flue closed as this stops flies from entering the house.

We are pretty relaxed but we do ask that when you leave you:
1. Place your rubbish in the council bins located on the service road directly outside the house.
2. Turn off the fridge at the powerpoint.
3. Make sure that the water pump is 'ON'.
- The house has tank water. We would greatly appreciate it if you use the water carefully.
- We are okay with pets as long as you let us know first (please note that there are no fences on the property) We are also ok with well behaved children.
I am a single, creative professional woman. I work part time as an interior decorator and my other work is as a screenwriter. I go away down the coast for week-ends quite regularly and take my dog George with me. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance of my home so I am often out of an evening visiting friends, catching a movie or having a bite to eat close by. When I am at home I like to cook and watch a good TV series (HBO, AMC, Homeland, Mad Men etc) or news and documentaries. I am very social but I also like quiet nights at home. I enjoy meeting people from other places and cultures and sharing my home with them.
