Welcome to Summer by the Bay. With just enough elevation to capture the expansive ocean views across Lorne bay without pushing too far from the beach, Summer by the Bay offers comfort and a touch of class for the whole family. From the point of entry, breathtaking views form a perfect foundation for your relaxing holiday. Set over split levels, the lime washed bamboo floors and natural light creates bright, open plan living that ooze holiday charm. The beach themed main living space is flanked by a modern renovated en-suited master bedroom, both offering incredible unobstructed ocean views and direct access to the enclosed deck area. Two further bedrooms and a main bathroom sit at the rear of the property. The main bathroom, also recently renovated, includes a bath style spa for ultimate relaxation. All bedrooms have electric heating for winter and the main living area is air conditioned for summer comfort. Other features include spacious built in wardrobes, full laundry, WeberQ and undercover parking. Pets are welcome in the house and are well catered for. The property is fully fenced and has an outdoor kennel for your four-legged companions who prefer the outdoors.

Summer by the Bay is a short 5 min drive to Lorne cafes, shops and supermarket and a short stroll to an all year round dog-friendly beach via the Stony Creek bridge, without having to cross the Great Ocean Road. Set right next to a national park, you can sit back on the deck, relax and enjoy the rustle of the trees and stunning ocean views with a beverage in hand, all at the same time!

We had a lovely stay here. The views were amazing and it is a very short walk to the beach.

Our dogs loved their weekend stay as well. Thanks!!

Thanks for a great stay. House was perfect, we all enjoyed Lorne and the surrounding areas. We’ll be back! Maybe with the pooch next time!

Had a very enjoyable two night stay at this lovely house with the divine views. Despite a dismal weather forecast had a Saturday to die for – walked from here to the street along the beach – clear blue sky – glorious surf and so much activity and friendly people. Although we had rain Sunday. The house was warm and cosy, fed the parrots by hand, but didn’t encourage those naughty cockies. Great walk up that hill, really made you feel like you were alive. Thanks again and a very happy birthday weekend to Lexi xxx

We stayed 3 nights here. Found the views fantastic, the dogs loved the beach, and the house was nice and cosy. Loved the walks along the beach in the mornings and late afternoons. We are glad to find a place where the dogs are relaxed and happy. Loved to see cockies in the evening and feeding them.

PS. Fishing was good too!


What a fantastic house, thanks for sharing. Stayed 5 nights and have had a very relaxing enjoyable time. Our 2 dogs loved the walks around Lorne and it’s great to find such a pet friendly property. We are already organizing our next stay here, when the weather is a little warmer. Only downfall was the heating – not really sufficient for the cold winter nights, but house was still comfortable. Being nature lovers the bird life was fantastic, especially the beautiful king parrots! The view is superb and looking forward to drinks on the balcony during daylight savings!

Found on GOR Real Estate, staff were great to deal with!

We loved the view of the beach and the pet friendly house. We appreciate the dog – safe garden. The dogs enjoyed the stay as much as we did.

We found you via Great Ocean Road Real Estate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely pet friendly home We had a lovely stay at Summer By the Bay. I was a little nervous about taking our two dogs, but the garden is fully fenced. A short stroll to the beach was easy. The house itself has a wonderful view over the ocean. We had lots of visitors in the form of the local birdlife which was lovely. The team at Great Ocean Road Holidays were easy to communicate with, and everything was enjoyable. We will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing, magical, inviting My partner and I stayed here as we planned to elope in nearby Erskine Falls. The place is just beautiful, keeping in mind it is an older house, but it is very neat and tidy and well looked after. While also being amazingly located and the fact it was pet friendly was such a plus for us as that meant our dog could join in on our big day. There is an abundance of natural light and great airflow. Would be a wonderful stay for both winter & summer. Make sure you order your linen and towels ahead of time to ensure a comfortable stay. Would 1000% definately stay here again! Great service by the team online and in person. Sunny + Adam

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Views This property is a little older but is very comfortable and was very clean and tidy. The views are stunning and the outdoor areas would be great for entertaining in Summer. A short drive to Lorne town centre and a nice stroll to the closest beach. There are plenty of bedrooms so would be great for a family getaway. Remember though to take plenty of linens - there weren't even any towels. Otherwise it was great.
