Escape to a special place in time where you can relax and enjoy the rustic charm of Keren's Place in a cosy motel-style Unit for Two (or a charming 2BR Cottage, see separate listing).
Enjoy your own private retreat in a beautifully cosy space with a lovely feel of "home". 100m to the beach, private deck. Unit-for-Two.
Relax in a motel-style Unit for Two. Small but cosy with an incredibly comfortable reclining 2 seater couch. Fully self-contained with AC, microwave, bar fridge and flat screen TV with DVD player. Jug, toaster and electric frying pan also provided together with crockery and cutlery.
Sit and watch the waves on a private, covered deck with your own BBQ, outdoor setting and bamboo blinds for your privacy. The Unit also has a small, private, secure side area with a hammock, shadecloth and tropical greenery to relax under. Fully fenced for the safety of your precious pets.
The back yard (shared with the 2BR Cottage) has a lovely lawn area and garden. It is fenced, with narrow pool fencing across the front. OK for toddlers and larger dogs that will not jump over.
Just 100 metres from the beach on flat ground. Keren's Place is 15 mins from Lorne and just around the corner from Wye River.
Also available is a cosy 2BR COTTAGE (see also Keren's Place - 2BR Cottage, available separately or together).
Plan to stay for at least 2 nights so that you can really relax. We know that you cannot relax completely if you know that you have to pack up again in the morning. For this reason we prefer a minimum stay of 2 nights.

Guest Book comments:
"Thank you Keren for such a lovely weekend. We really enjoyed our stay here. Highlights - feeding "Harold" the King Parrot. He jumped on my shoulder and head, then told his friends to come the next day. Our 9 year old greyhound Rosie had the time of her life at the beach. Highlight for her was eating the bussing flies outside".
