We are closing CastleAire on April 1, 2015 in order to devote ourselves full time to our arts careers. In the meantime we are still looking forward to receiving you.

An incomparable view. Perched on a gentle hill overlooking the Ford and Aire River valley and estuary below, CastleAire is a luxurious bed and breakfast with its own unique 'wow' factor. With breathtaking views, deeply comfortable ensuite bedrooms and a shaded balcony upon which to contemplate the valley below, CastleAire is a very special place to stay.

As one of the only properties bordering the Great Ocean Walk and the Otway National Park, we offer an exceptional accommodation getaway experience. We are centrally located, approx halfway along the 102 km walk and just 500m from the GOW track. Native animals koala, echidna, wallabies, kangaroos and lizards are often seen in the grounds.

We provide traditional bed and breakfast hosted accommodation and do not serve meals other than breakfast without prior arrangement. For dinner there are a number of excellent restaurants and cafes in Apollo Bay just 30 minutes away. If you prefer to eat 'in' and join us at our communal table for dinner, please let us know when booking. Alternatively you may wish to order one of our platters to share.

CastleAire Retreat is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning location! We spent two nights on the Great Ocean Road and our stay at CastleAire B&B was one of the highlights! CastleAire is a beautiful and secluded location. The views of the valley and ocean can be enjoyed from your room or at the kitchen table as you devour the sensational three course breakfast that has been prepared. Thank you Sue and Jeremy for your warm welcome and hospitality, we enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very very excellent We have already been back to China for one week. During our two weeks' trip to Australia, we do feel Australia is a very beautiful and clean country and we enjoy every day at that time. I can say that the most highlight for the accomodation of this trip is your B&B, CastleAire Bed & Breakfast. This is undoubtledy. What a large garden, nice house, luxury rooms, traditional breakfast, great ocean view. Everything is amazing, unbelievable, and beyond our expectation. We also followed Sue and experienced a small walk tour around the house. Their friendly and smile are very very impressed to us.
