Welcome to Periton Lodge, a traditional beach house.
This private oasis is located in a quiet street 300m from Separation Creek Beach and is bordered by established trees hosting koalas & an array of colourful wild birds.
Imagine breakfast in the morning sun, listening to the crashing waves, overlooking a 180 degree view of the ocean from the large enclosed front balcony.
An afternoon nap on the couch, in the hammock or laying in front of the cosy wood fire.
Winter 2013 has seen the addition of a dishwasher and brand new double & queen size beds complete with electric blankets to ensure our guests get a great nights rest.
The undercover BBQ area enables outdoor gas cooking in all weather conditions and our herb garden offers you super fresh flavours to add to your cooking.
With 2 bedrooms; Periton Lodge can sleep up to 7 adults:
Entry Level: 1 bedroom which has 1x bunk & 1x double bed- sleeping 4 in total
Lower level; 1 bedroom which has 1x queen bed & 1x single bed - sleeping 3 in total, this is a lockable room with ocean view & external access.
We've added some new technology to our retro beach getaway for the days the weather doesn't come to the party.
We have an ipod dock (30 pin), Satellite Digital TV reception, HD LCD TV(with USB jack & HDMI inputs) & DVD player with 20 or so DVDs. There's also the old style CD player.
If the kids are into gaming, feel free to BYO cords & console.
Periton Lodge is situated a gentle 300m walk from the beach. Wye River Pub, Café & Store are a gentle 1km walk away via the beach, road or Paddy's Path.
By car, Lorne is a 15 minute drive and Apollo Bay 30mins where you will find a variety of restaurants & shops, banks, petrol stations & supermarkets.
Periton Lodge is the ideal sanctuary to "get away from it all".
