Description

First things first; there is so much to do, see and experience here that you best plan to stay for a few days. But we also understand the real world doesn't always allow that.

So starting with the house.

The Eyrie caters for it's up to 8 guests very comfortably, but remains wonderfully cosy for just 2. We feature original, local art throughout the house, mostly landscapes of the area, to further enhance the uniqueness of this special place. Every room features spectacular views, even the toilet

The house is designed with 2 bedroom/bathroom areas. One, with 2 bedrooms 1 Queen bed and 2 Single beds and on-suite, is off the lounge on the lower level, while the 2nd area is upstairs, again with 2 bedrooms each with 1 Queen bed this time and sharing a separate bathroom. Because we cater for from 1-8 people, we ask you only use the bedrooms you need. Check out the floor plan in the photos.

Living areas have split system heating and air-con + the real open fire with the wood box a metre away more wood in the nearby woodshed. There are 2 lounge seating areas and dining in-between. Flat screen TV and full stereo with phone plug, CD & DVD are there of course. The tasteful kitchen, featuring beautiful blackwood benches and doors, has all the new facilities and equipment you need inc microwave, elec oven, gas cook-top, full fridge/freezer, large dishwasher, toaster, etc.

A fully equipped laundry sees out the in-house facilities.

There are 2 main outdoor areas, the large deck out sea-side has tables, chairs and that view That view with the land below dropping steeply away into a deep gully and then on out to the sea. The deck is accessed from the lower rooms.

The north facing spacious patio out the back, with the 6 burner BBQ/lid/side burner, picnic table and seats, gets the most sun and enjoys a protected and garden setting. Access is via a garden catwalk from the deck, the kitchen and laundry. The house is surrounded by lovely gardens.

Plenty of parking is available.

On a 27 acres, the property has a mix of forest and grazing land we run some sheep here. There are many places to walk, enjoying the diverse views from the high grazing paddocks and then plunging into the forest along our forest stone pathway and viewing/absorbing our beautiful waterfall.

Check out the eucalypt trees along the driveway for koalas

You'll have the whole house and surrounds to yourselves. You are invited to enjoy any or all of the property, especially the rainforest gully with stone pathway and waterfall areas with picnic spot, table and viewing seat. Take care with children and elderly on the waterfall path, it's sound but steep.

Excellent and varied land and seascape views are available from the sheep paddocks. Leave gates open or closed as you find them please.

No other guests will be on the property. We have a separate house here and we are mostly available if you need something. But when not we'll leave you alone.

Warning: you'll find it hard to leave

What to bring?

- Bring clothing for all conditions, the weather is variable, even in summer.

- A torch is handy.

- Shops/cafes with pretty much everything you need are 15 mins away.

The Area

If you haven't been in the area before it's a spectacular combination of coast and mountain. Great driving, surfing, fishing, swimming cold water, beach lazing and rock hopping. Skenes Creek Surf beach is down the bottom of the hill, 5km by road. As you no doubt know, The Gt Ocean Rd. is a fabulous asset of the area and a must explore option. The 12 Apostles are also hugely popular and about an hour away but better you take the whole day to explore.

Then there's the Great Ocean Walk, a truely world class walk with all sections available as day walks , numerous inland walks in the National Park, inspiring waterfalls, great picnic areas, fabulous MTB single trails nearby if you're so inclined.

There's the outstanding Chris' Restaurant 2km down the hill and everything cosmopolitan available in Apollo Bay 15 mins away with numerous cafes and restaurants.

That's if you can drag yourself away from The Eyrie itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breathtaking view From where we come from, houses are like small pigeon holes and beautifully built landed properties with gorgeous views are something as distant as watching an episode of Grand Design, naturally the Eyrie is like a dream. Every room comes with an equally breathtaking view, even the bathroom, especially the upstairs one with the tub. A must to take a bathe there, even if you should only use as little water as possible. I could stay in the tub all day. Sit upright and you can take in the sea view, lie down and you can watch the clouds float by. Take a walk around the house and you will be offered a panorama view of the sea, the forest and rolling hills. Our stay here was short, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a house lovingly built and equipped, probably the best equipped one we stayed in during our entire trip in Australia. Andy was great, ever ready to extend help during our stay, offering us tips and friendly chats, even helping us to check up on Upick farms around the area and recommending the better supermarket to pick up some food for bbq. Just remember to bring warm clothes, we weren't used to the cold at night though it was summer there and all beds came with an electric blanket. Maybe we are just not accustomed to chilly weather. Also, the road leading to the Eyrie is rather narrow, families driving big cars be mentally prepared for challenging parking. The eagle statue guiding us to turn into the Eyrie's driveway was not very easy to spot, so keep a keen lookout. The Eyrie is perfect in itself though. I only wished we could stay longer. My eyes had a feast and my mind relaxed, it is a good place for the soul. You Australians are so lucky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Beautiful Close enough for a quick drive to beaches. Spectacular views mean't you could stay inside.
