Great views, super practical for families
We had a great time and would happily go back. It's not fancy, but with three children that was upside for us. Open plan layout, nice dark bedrooms and awesome views from the balcony were our favourite things. Wifi would have been icing on the cake, but phone reception was good. A+
Classic holiday house
Great open plan layout with everything needed in the kitchen to cook up a storm for a large group. The views from balcony and living area is first class. Sep creek beach is a real escape from the crowds, but if you like the crowds and the hype, just a 10 minute stroll to Wye along gorgeous rock pools is right there. The 4 bedrooms all offered something special and the second fridge was a real bonus. Loved the sea-fearing and maritime decor throughout the house. This is your old fashioned beach house, not modern home beautiful, but it works so well and feels like a real no frills beach holiday with views to die for.
With only 1 bathroom we took a hose and spray head to set up an outdoor shower for those returns from the beach covered in sand, but no outdoor tap was available, due to the property being serviced by tank water only. A minor inconvenience, we set up a tub of water and bath mat on the deck to wash off before entering the house.
It says dog friendly, but be aware that there is absolutely no fencing on this property - so a well behaved dog and people committed to taking their dog for several walks a day is needed. Our pooch loved the deck and views and felt like king of the castle up there looking over his kingdom.
I really think linen should be provided at no extra charge - the extra load in your car is huge and really, what does one or 2 washes cost in the big picture?
We look forward to staying again.
The photos do not do justice to the fantastic view. The house is clean, spacious and well appointed. Great covered deck at the back of the house for those rainy days. I have rented many houses in the area but will stop looking for the perfect house now I have found this one!
The panoramic view is spectacular. However the property was not cleaned prior to our arrival (toilet seat dirty, mouse dropping on cushion, dead fly on tv console, insect debris in bathroom & downstairs bed). The owners appear to be building a new deck on the lower floor, and at 8:45pm (dusk) on Saturday night, 2 men appeared on the deck and spent 5-10 minutes there talking to each other about it’s progress. They were aware the place was occupied as I made direct eye contact with one of them but he made no effort to move away. It is not unreasonable when paying X dollars for the privilege of renting a place to expect sole occupancy. I thought it an outrageous breach of privacy.
Thank you for your review Selina. What you refer to as an outrageous breach of privacy was in fact the neighboring property owners simply visiting their home to discuss plans for their property. The effect of this on your stay was surely very minor as they were only in residence for a few hours. We accept there may have been one or dead two insects at the base of the windows which happens from time to time. We apologize this had an effect on your enjoyment of the property. Your review of one star is in stark contrast to all the other 4 and 5 star reviews that have come before you. Warm regards Great Ocean Road Holidays
Without question, the views are spectacular. However the property was not cleaned prior to our arrival (toilet seat dirty, mouse dropping on cushion, dead fly on tv console, insect debris in bathroom & downstairs bed). In addition, privacy an issue as 2 men (owner/builder?) on site at 8:45pm talking to each other about progress of deck being built on lower floor.
We loved this place. It is the perfect family holiday house. Great view.
We hope to have you back :) GORH
