Relax in this enchanting mud brick cottage, cut deep into a lime stone hill, surrounded by parkland, set amongst the natural beauty of its coastal location.

A sustainable home built in the 70's, it’s here you will discover a beautiful mixture of natural and recycled materials from rammed earth walls, to exposed wooden beams, to vintage Telecom Phone booth doors.

On a winter's night, indulge in a book, in-front of the pot belly fire, where the smell of soup simmers and the sound of the tea pot whistles. The unique handmade lights, switched by a pull cord creates an array of moods, from the orange Indian bracelet pendants draped by the fire place, to the wagon wheel light suspended above the 10 seater canteen dinner table.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed and TV/DVD, adjoined by a rumpus room featuring a day bed, TV/DVD, where the kids can retreat too. Further down the hall, opposite the laundry, you'll discover another bedroom with hand-made Queen Size Bunk Beds.

The fully equipped kitchen includes peculated coffee, a coffee plunger, basic pantry items and split system. It adjoins a stylishly furnished open plan living and dining area. The roof conceals a loft ladder, which pulls down to reveal a fourth white ambient bedroom, featuring a queen size bed and TV/DVD.

A 3min stroll will lead you to Ocean Grove's hidden treasure, Bluewaters Lake. A further 10min walk and you will come across many local attractions in Ocean Grove, including the Surf Beach, River, Golf Course and the Main Street filled with award winning cafés and restaurants. Bikes and boogie boards are supplied, so peddle your way around, catch a wave, stumble on a winery or two, visit the local berry farms. Who knows what you'll discover.

After a day of exploring the endless attractions, come back and fire up the Pizza Oven, all a whilst the kids explore the playground. Or simply relax in the hammock listening to the birds and the sounds of the waves.

Please note that there is a gradual decline from the road side to the house, comprising of about 40 steps. It is not recommended for people who will struggle to walk up and down stairs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quaint and adequate homely stay We loved the Enchanting mudbrick cottage getaway. Perfect location for access to the surf coast- close to Torquay and Geelong. The house is just so gorgeous, lovely setting and everything you need to set up base for a holiday. Spacious living and lounge with TV and satellite coverage as well as TV in every room. Plenty of DVDs to keep the boredom away- if You have time! The bedrooms are comfortable and warm- with electric blankets to boot. With added advantage of hidden attic bedroom (perfect for our teenage daughter to escape!) Kitchen was enough- cooking dinner amongst the action with an open plan design, although the stove top doesn't have an exhaust and can lead to house filled with smell. Dishwasher, utensils and coffee plunger were added bonuses. Everything else you could need is easy to find. The dining table is a funky design, but the swivel style chairs were cute but impractical. Outdoor BBQ and pizza oven are only good if weather is favourable- but plenty of inspiration for the brave. Ocean Grove is a stunning seaside town- with all the amenities you need. Local shopping and supermarket means you won't go without- don't fear! The cottage is opposite a playground an easy walk to lakeside strolls- even in rainy winter weather, there is much to explore. Bathroom is stunning, with a beautiful deep bath tub and luxurious shower to enhance to the exposed stone to add to the earthly feel of the house. Shampoo, conditioner and shower gel is provided. This house is the perfect way to escape, there is nothing you will go without. Plenty of green tea to boot! Books and DVD's provided. Indoor wood heater as well as electric system to heat the house- we had to buy wood locally which was not hard or expensive. Only faults would be a dirty dishwasher upon arrival and unkept gardens with overgrown weeds and cobwebs throughout the house- a little TLC and would receive 10/10. A fantastic and comfortable getaway, we would gladly stay again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enchanting house We had a lovely stay here, the house was beautiful lots of space. Beautiful field right next to the house with a park. Owner was accommodating. It's a long walk to the beach and shops so a car is ideal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great house A few things needed fixing that were listed in accommodation listing. The contact was able to fix most. Dishwasher broke down on 2nd day of our stay. Little disappointed some sort of compensation wasn't offered as it could not be fixed. Outside of that. Great house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful place! Very relaxing and a great place to take kids. There is even large stretches of grass where you can fly a kite any time. Will definitely come back!
