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 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic!! The property is in a perfect location to allow one to enjoy both the Great Ocean Road but also the surrounding National Forest. It provided fantastic views of the coastline and the kids loved playing outside, walking to the waterfall and seeing the sheep (plus the bonus of a new lamb). Loved the amenities to deal with the cold weather - heater, fire and electric blankets. A great house for our family holiday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No better views! We felt very much at home in this property. Older style 2 story home where we could watch the weather come and go. Lovely & quiet. A tad cold at times but enjoyed the open fire as well as the reverse cycle air con. Good for our family consisting of 3 adult children & their partners.
