We live on 100 acres in the Otway Ranges bordering the Gellibrand River. Our home of 27 years was renovated to be nestled within an extensive English styled setting of pathways and plantings founded on the existence of 100 year old oak trees. The garden flows into a production area where foliage is grown to supply local florists as well as summer vegetables for our kitchen.
Your accommodation is set above the main home and garden, situated to enjoy the higher views over the plantings and valley. It has been designed to offer relaxing and visually pleasing self contained spaces. The fit-out, including furniture & equipment, has been exclusively selected for guests.
The building contains a Queen room with bathroom at one end, a kitchen and lounge in the central space, with a double room and bathroom at the other end. An electric oven, bbq and refrigerator are provided. Heating is supplied by wall heaters, cooling by cross ventilation and ceiling fans. Bookings are accepted for the entire villa for up to 4 guests. Alternatively, bookings for 2 guests for exclusive use of a single bedroom, bathroom and the living space is possible.
By car, Carlisle River is an easy day trip to the Otway Fly and waterfalls, the 12 Apostles Coastal Park, Melba Gully National Park, Timboon, Forrest and Gellibrand.
Colac is 30 minutes to the north, Apollo Bay is 1 hour to the south-east with Lavers Hill en route. Princetown is 40 minutes to the south with Port Campbell and Peterborough between 35-50 minutes to the south west.
Visiting Carlisle enfolds you into the peaceful surroundings offered by the Gellibrand River Valley - a short drive, but world away from the traffic along the Great Ocean Road.
