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

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 didnt 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 its 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

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing getaway Great place to stay. Amazing views, fairly central, pet friendly and child friendly. Our children loved the birds that came to visit us daily. It was a lovely relaxing winter get away

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and relaxing Nice comfortable house with a good vibe. Peaceful surroundings with ocean views from the balcony. Situated on a steep hill with no footpaths made it difficult to walk anywhere. Pet friendly which allowed us to bring our pooch who loved the decking, however found the backyard not so pet friendly with lack of grass, steep and was covered in droppings from previous pets which deterred us from letting our dog run around.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from VERY DISAPPOINTING Stunning views and good location (albeit extremely steep) but house is in desperate need of work. Mould in main bedroom and ensuite is a big problem and became so bad to live with we had to leave a day early. There's quite a bit of maintenance required to make this property better and simple things like removing cobwebs, spiders and dead bugs in the cobwebs BEFORE guests arrive would make for a nicer stay! We did make the real estate agent aware of the issues stay and they offered to rectify the main problems immediately but treating and removing mould, as well as spraying for spiders is not the sort of treatment you do when guests are already staying in the property, particularly when two guests are asthmatics! Girls at Great Ocean Road Holidays were lovely, and apologetic, but honestly, the property shouldn't be rented out in this condition. Thanks for the offer to clean it once we were staying there but sadly this was not an option given the two asthmatics staying there. I wouldn't stay here again unless a lot of work was done to the place and it wasn't crawling with spiders and bugs. It's a shame it was so bad as it ruined our family holiday. Lorne was beautiful. The house was not in a fit state to live in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just lovely Lovely space to watch the ocean and the rain falling. Great bath tub and kitchen was well equipped to prepare meals. Dog friendly home. Loved the car port and also the comfortable beds. Would be lovely in warmer weather!
