Coastal cool for two. Our little one bedroom beach house is 100 steps to the water. Its sunny north wall ( that's right..wall ) slides open to bring the outside in. There are decks, a sea view and the sound of the waves. Village a ten minute stroll.
We have always loved little beach houses, so we decided to build one. Of course, it is obligatory for a beach house to have a beach.....ours is opposite. You will find comfortable accommodation for one or two people in our new, open plan, little house. We like that the architect included a sliding wall that can open the living area to the outside deck on sunny days. We also like that we can batten down the hatches in winter and turn on the log fire. The bedroom has its own little deck too, just because..... There is plenty of cooking equipment. Yes, wine glasses, coffee and teas included. All linen is provided.
Apollo Bay sits at the foot of the Otway Ranges, by the Southern Ocean. It is a sea change kind of place with real live locals. Find them fishing, playing golf or footy, walking in the national parks, surfing, swimming, and at the Saturday market.
  • A really small and fine place to stay! Location right on the Great Ocean Road, just steps from the beach. You can eat on the terrace. The equipment was very good - everything you need was there! Super clean!

  • This place was one of the best AirBNBs we’ve stayed at. We felt right at home the second we arrived. Amazing location, amazing kitchen, super cosy couch after a day of hiking or beaching. My wife and I enjoyed playing a few card games by the fire, enjoyed a bottle of wine or two, and loved the cozy couch and sounds of the waves crashing along the shore as we sleep. I would highly recommend this place.

  • We’ve stayed here before and love it! The space is so stylish and well appointed and exactly what we need. The location is great too. It’s close to the beach and the beautiful farmland behind Apollo Bay and only a short drive to see the koalas. And nothing beats falling asleep to the sound of the waves! We’ll definitely be back again.

Plus, not only was Lyn a fantastic host, but we also got to enjoy some time speaking with her at her store in town and she even helped us plan our drive and stops for the rest of the day. Come to Apollo Bay and stay here!

  • An outstanding place to stay - we were sad to leave. Absolutely incredible views! Excellent attention to details from the welcome package to being fully stocked with the essentials for cooking and living in the space. Very clean and cosy space. A+ hosts - they should teach others how to do it.

    This little escape is all about memories. Remember those simple beach days and the tiny, fun, casual beach shack that was home for the summer? Well now you can recapture that feeling with The Shack. A classic 50s beach cabin that instantly transports you to oversized beach towels, foam eskies and beach umbrellas with frills. Situated near beautiful Skenes Creek and a short walk to ‘Skenies’ beach, you can relax and recapture youthful days washing the sand off your feet under the front yard tap.
    Inside, The Shack has one bedroom with a Queen bed and a view and a second bedroom with bunks. The Shack is all about no nonsense fun. Basic. Simple. Clean and close to the breaking waves. And all this, just a short drive to the main town of Apollo Bay and all its restaurants and cafés.
    Skenes Creek is an idyllic township on the Great Ocean Road, only a 5 minute drive from Apollo Bay on a popular surf beach. Skenes Creek is a great place to base yourself to explore the Great Ocean Road and Great Otway National Park. The Otways walks and waterfalls are only a short drive away and are absolutely worth the explore any time of the year. Apollo Bay is only a short 5 minute drive and has all the shops, restaurants and amenities you’ll require. For fresh fish and chips you can’t go past The Apollo Bay Seafood Cafe and for something a little fancier try La Bimba. The famous Wye Beach Hotel is a 20 minute drive and is known for its stunning uninterrupted ocean views and great pub meals. For your morning coffee you can walk to the local caravan park general store or head to Hello in Apollo Bay which is a hidden gem the locals love! Whether you like to surf, fish, walk or just like to relax, Skenes Creek is the place for you! 3 minute walk to Skenes Creek Beach 5 minute drive to Apollo Bay 90 minutes to the Twelve Apostles 20 minutes to Wye River and Wye Beach Hotel 40 minutes to Lorne 50 minutes to Otway Fly Treetop Adventures 30 minutes to Forrest Brewery and mountain bike trails 5 minutes to Chris’ Restaurant Beacon Point 90 minutes from Geelong Just over 2 hours from Melbourne
  • Cute and comfy cottage in a stunning part of the world.

    Carolyn2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here. The great Australian dream - a humble abode right next to the ocean. Skenes Creek is super cool, right next to Apollo Bay along an amazing stretch of coastline. We would happily return rain hail or shine - the shack is a piece of heaven on earth. Thank you so much x

    Tanya2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • The Shack is such a special place. We visited for our honeymoon and fell in love with it. It’s so peaceful, but close enough to the nearby town of Apollo Bay to get everything you need. The place is well equipped and beautifully decorated. It’s the perfect place to get away from it all, and we spent our time reading, playing records and walking along the nearby beach! We would recommend The Shack to everyone and hope we can come back soon!

    Sarah2020-02-14T00:00:00Z

  • What a beautiful house! So spacious and modern! The hot tub and sauna and big deck were lovely to have. There is a barbeque on the deck as well. The furniture is up to date and comfortable and the views from the upper floor are just beautiful. We liked the location of the house - close to Apollo’s Bay and convenient for seeing sights like the Twelve Apostle’s. The house feels very high end but the luxurious touches don’t seem to match the feel of the house. There was not much soap at all in the house. One tiny bar of hand soap in both bedroom bathrooms and there was no hand soap in the kitchen or upper floor bathroom at all. The bed linens were nice and there was even a top sheet which we appreciated. Towels were minimal - 2 bath towels for each bedroom and only one hand towel. There was not even a hand towel in the upper floor bathroom. The kitchen was such a pleasure to work in and was so spacious. There were lots of dishes and glasses and some pans but not a ton of those. There were very minimal condiments or spices like salt and pepper. The air conditioning unit is located on the upper level so it does not do much to cool off the bedrooms in the lower level when it is hot out. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at this house!

  • We had a wonderful weekend here. Everything was beautifully furnished clean and very spacious. Loved the modern kitchen open living area and the comfy sofa chairs. Views were wonderful. Enjoyed the fireplace as well. Close to beach, walks and Apollo bay shops. Hope to be back soon.

  • Just spent 3 fantastic nights here whilst showing friends from the UK around The Great Ocean Road and Otways. Mikhala's place exceeded expectations - it was very spacious for the 6 of us, beautifully clean, great modern design and style. Wonderful ocean views and a short walk to the beach. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this place!

    Nicole2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Mikhala's place was beautiful! Such a wonderful place to stay with the family - we had everything we needed from kitchen utensils, to extra blankets and firewood! There was plenty of little bits and pieces in the pantry, Nespresso machine, toaster etc. We also opted for getting the linen supplied as my family was flying from interstate, which was beautiful and worth it as the linen was comfy, clean and soft. For guests - just make sure you check in about the extra payment as we didn't realise ours was owed as there was no notification in the app and nothing comes through the messages either. I assumed they took payment from the credit card since I didn't hear anything else. Not Mikhala's fault at all, luckily the Airbnb Resolution team got in touch via messages to let me know about the additional payment and we made the payment immediately once informed. My family and I had a wonderful stay at Mikhala's place, we spent many nights cooking in the kitchen as the weather was cold and didn't get a chance to use the BBQ. Though from what we saw, it seems the BBQ is larger than what previous reviews have mentioned. I think it has been upgraded and it's large enough for a family for sure. The TV is now sitting on the cabinetry instead of hung on the wall with the extendable/tilt arm, so you won't be able to watch the TV from the couches. The dining table and couches have swapped positions from in the photos (dining table is now in front of the kitchen bench). Something to think about if you're wanting to snuggle in for movie nights, you'll have to move the furniture around to get the right spot. The bins were also full when we got there, but it wasn't time for rubbish day collection yet. So we had to go to the tip for the excess rubbish unfortunately. It's not too far away, but it does mean you have to make the trip out. Location wise it was perfectly located in Skenes Creek - close to Apollo Bay to get groceries, food and even shops.

  • Great place to stay close to Apollo Bay. We could sit in the chairs and look out at the ocean all day long. Great view!

    John2020-03-04T00:00:00Z

    Recent Guest comment: "Great location - excellent views and close to shops without being suburban. The resident koala just topped it off."
  • Spectacular place. Loved every second. AC/Heater was excellent. Views were terrific. The kitchen had everything you could possibly want/need. For those who are not used to combo washer/dryers, make sure you have plenty of time for the dual cycle -- nothing wrong with the system, but we hadn't experienced it before. Amazing birds came to visit on the front porch. Seriously, nothing you could possibly want more in a place. Rest and relaxation. Four minute walk to the beach. Note, no food or beverage in walking distance but it's a short beautiful drive to Apollo Bay. If we ever venture to this part of the world again, we will stay at George's Place.

    Paul2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful stylish villa with amazing views. Everything you need for a perfect break

    Mary2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Apollo Views is exactly what it says and will not disappoint no matter what colour the sky is! Situated perfectly to drop in and out of Apollo Bay itself surrounded by trees and nature, you could easily arrive and not leave at all until your departure day. The property offers comfortable spaces indoors and out and views that you don't want to switch off! The sound of the ocean was a highlight for us. The kitchen facilities are great if you want to dine in. It boasts a great ensuite shower and a very comfortable bed. Lots of space to pack things away for the duration of your stay. The stairway lit up at night is most attractive. All in all the perfect place to hang out with a good book, kick back and recharge your batteries with an ocean soundtrack. Look out for cheeky cockatoo looking for attention too. We weren't lucky enough to encounter a koala or kookaburra this time but look forward to staying again in the future. Thank you to George for your messages from the beginning of the booking to the end and your obvious love and care of Apollo Views over the years in operation to provide cleanliness and comfort to your guests.

    Jayne2020-02-22T00:00:00Z

    Welcome to my lovely beach house. This is a great place to stay for a weekend or a week, and is perfect for couples or families. The main living area is large and light with open plan lounge/dining and a fully equipped kitchen. The views of the ocean and treetops are amazing, so meals can be enjoyed with a view from inside or out. This is the perfect family beach house and I'm sure you'll love it as much as my family does. There is a newly installed wood heater for cosy winter nights.
    Our place is a classic Aussie beach house. Spacious and relaxing, with a beautiful big deck overlooking the ocean and with regular visits from the local birdlife and a resident koala in the front tree. Inside is open plan living, dining and kitchen with large windows and oceans views throughout. There is a brand new wood fire heater in the lounge room. It will keep you lovely and cosy. If you don’t want to use the fire you can just switch on the wall heater. It's a 5 minute walk to Skenes Creek beach and a 5 minute drive into the shops at Apollo Bay. The house has 3 bedrooms, comfortably sleeping 6 adults and 2 kids. Two bedrooms have queen size beds while the third bedroom has a single bed and a queen/single bunk. The kitchen has gas cooking, coffee machine and a pantry full of essentials such as olive oil, tea and coffee.

Skenes Creek is 6km from Apollo Bay. Apollo Bay has all the shops and restaurants that you need along with a cinema, golf course and local markets. The main supermarket is called Foodworks and there is also a great fruit and veg shop called Garden of Eden. The fishing co-op is the place for seafood and the local market runs on the foreshore every weekend.
  • Rachel’s place is really cosy and comfy. Place can sleep up to 5 people and an amazing view of the ocean at the balcony. Would recommend 10/10 to book!

  • Very relaxing stay, great location and cockatoos and parrots visit frequently on the balcony. Reminded me of family holiday houses from when I was a kid, very homely and comfortable.

    Mercas2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Rachel’s place is in a fantastic location. The view from the balcony if the ocean is amazing, we spent a lot of late evenings and early mornings there watching the ocean! It is also just an 8 min drive to Appolo Bay which has all amenities, groceries and restaurants. It is very kid and family friendly with lots of spaces for kids to run around and kid friendly amenities like high chair, kiddie bowls and spoons, and some board games too. Rachel’s kitchen is well stocked and had the basics like oil, salt, pepper, pasta and some cans and sauces so we could buy a few minimal things and whip up a few meals. The beds and rooms were comfortable too. I’d highly recommend the place to any large family with kids .

    Sneha2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • A great place for a family holiday. Sleeps 6 adults and 2 children easily ,comfortable beds and pillows. Big bathroom and good shower. Lots of plates glasses platters bowls and oven trays etc for cooking Christmas dinner. Big balcony, good for star gazing at night or looking at view of waves during the day. Appreciated being able to shut off sleeping area from living area. Good for those who wanted to go to bed early or sleep in. We all enjoyed playing the Trivial Pursuit that was supplied. Rachel is an attentive host and I would recommend her holiday home.

  • This place exceeded our expectations. The Picnic hill view was breathtaking. Just walking around the organic garden , watching the ponies and Dooley, the talking cockatoo and bunny you have so much to do in this space apart from the beach which is just opposite. Organic theme was very impressive and Lesley and Ebony were informative sharing local sites and food tips. We did take a dip into the pool which was amazing too! And surprise being greeted by koala who was their random visitor that day.

    Shruthi2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • A very warm welcome in amazing, calm place where you can be at one with the elements & a few koalas or two!!! Each room on the farm is beautifully designed with its own individuality & presence. The sound of the sea is ever present with views of incredible sunsets & dark clear skies from the overlooking hill a must for guests. Thoroughly recommended.

  • An absolutely stunning place. Location is no issue: 5 minutes drive to Apollo Bay. But the house is the clincher: so spacious, stylish and serene. The large balcony and patio faces the sea and comes with gas fuelled BBQ pit which was in excellent condition - we used it both evenings we were there.

    Skenes Creek, VIC, Australia

    Our classic beach house is the perfect getaway, all year round. Retro charm meets modern appliances, it's the quintessential Aussie beach house. Just a 5 min walk to beautiful Skenes Creek beach, 5 min drive to Apollo Bay and an ideal base to explore the Great Ocean Road and the Otways. A couple of streets back from the noise of the Great Ocean Road, you'll sleep peacefully, woken only by the local birdlife or occasionally the resident koala (he snorts!)
    With three bedrooms, a modern kitchen and cosy living space, our house is perfect for a couples weekend or a larger family holiday. There's a large deck with views of the ocean, outdoor dining table and BBQ for your summer dinners and a cosy fireplace for those colder winter nights. 2 bedrooms have queen size beds, the 3rd has a queen bed and a set of bunks. We also have a portacot if you have a tiny one with you. The huge backyard is fully fenced with a large trampoline and there is an outdoor shower with hot water for rinsing off after the beach. The house is equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine and air conditioner. The room with bunk beds has a TV, dvd player, kids books, dvds and board games.
    Skenes Creek is a lovely little hamlet, situated between Wye River and Apollo Bay. The beach is 500m from the house with sand to the right and rock pools to the left. Abundant birdlife visit the property. Bower birds, black cockatoos, crimson rosellas, kookaburras and the local king parrots will eat from your hand. It's best not to feed the cockatoo's though as they can be very loud! There is also a resident koala in the front tree. Further afield, Skenes Creek is the perfect base for you to explore the Great Ocean Road and the rainforests of the Otway National Park. There are so many great walks to choose from including sections of the Great Ocean Road Walk. One favourite is The Shelley Beach Circuit (2km) which starts from the Shelley Beach Picnic Area (20 minutes from the house). Look out for koalas and echidnas along the bush track. If you're looking for a stunning rainforest walk try the Lake Elizabeth track (2km) which is a 40 minute drive from the house. The 12 Apostles are the highlight of the Great Ocean Road and are just over an hours drive. It's a quick 5 minute drive to the shops and restaurants at Apollo Bay. The most delicious fish and chips can be found at the Apollo Bay Seafood Cafe. The famous Wye Beach Hotel at Wye River is a 20 min drive. A pretty special spot with a huge deck and uninterrupted ocean views. Saturday markets on the foreshore at Apollo Bay. A great place to pick up local berries, homemade jams and cakes or a souvenir.
  • Great place to stay for a large group with an awesome open living space. Also walking distance to the beach and a short drive to Apollo Bay which makes it a great place to stay.

  • Great place for a group stay with family. Loved the open layout of common space and big balcony with view of water. Fireplace made the cold nights cosy and trampoline was great for kids. Loved seeing all the different birds that came to visit. Great to be just a short walk to beach to explore rock pools and we enjoyed day trips all around the Otways.

    Carlyn2019-11-30T00:00:00Z

    Gemma2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I stayed here for a night before heading back to Melbourne. The place is well kept and spotless. The view is breathtaking. Our hostess was friendly and communication was great. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

    Anita2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Skenes Creek and the incredible views from Deborah’s gorgeous home.

  • Fantastic view, beautiful sunrise to wake up to! House was perfectly clean, fun and cute space. Great host.

    Michael2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Best place to stay in Apollo Bay, with best view of the sea. Keep some time aside to sit and relax in the living room. We were busy doing outdoor activities and were tight on schedule. We totally regret that now, and could have spent more time enjoying the wonderful views from this AirBnb. And yes, was sparkling clean, and has all the amenities you need, in the rooms as well and kitchen and washrooms has all basic necessities stocked.

    Er Manpreet2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • It was nice stay , we enjoyed every bit. The place is so comfortable and convenient.

    Md Mahmudur2020-02-25T00:00:00Z

    Secluded high on hills above Apollo Bay, The Eyrie is a beautiful, architect designed, 2 storey, split level home perched over the Southern Ocean, with waterfalls, walks, forest and views at every turn. Just as perfect for a couple as for a large gathering.
    This is a very special place, so in your planning try to allow a few days at least to see and experience all that is here . The most common comment of our guests is that their stay wasn't long enough. But we also understand the real world doesn't always allow for that. So starting with the house. The Eyrie caters for it's up to 8 guests very comfortably, but remains wonderfully cosy for just 2. We feature original, local art throughout the house, mostly landscapes of the area, to further enhance the uniqueness of this special place. Every room features spectacular views, even the toilet! The Eyrie is designed with 2 bedroom/bathroom areas. One, with 2 bedrooms (1 Queen bed and 2 Single beds) and on-suite, is off the lounge on the lower level, while the 2nd area is upstairs, again with 2 bedrooms (each with 1 Queen bed this time) and sharing a separate bathroom. Because we cater for from 1-8 people, we ask you only use the bedrooms you need. Check out the floor plan in the photos. Living areas have split system heating and air-con + the real open fire with the wood box a metre away (more wood in the nearby woodshed). There are 2 lounge seating areas and dining in-between. Flat screen TV and full stereo with phone plug, CD & DVD are there of course. The tasteful kitchen, featuring beautiful blackwood benches and doors, has all the new facilities and equipment you need inc microwave, elec oven, gas cook-top, full fridge/freezer, large dishwasher, toaster, etc. A fully equipped laundry sees out the in-house facilities. There are 2 main outdoor areas, the large deck out sea-side has tables, chairs and that view! That view with the land below dropping steeply away into a deep gully and then on out to the sea. The deck is accessed from the lower rooms. The north facing spacious patio out the back, with the 6 burner BBQ/lid/side burner, picnic table and seats, gets the most sun and enjoys a protected and garden setting. Access is via a garden catwalk from the deck, the kitchen and laundry. The house is surrounded by lovely gardens. Plenty of parking is available. On a 27 acres, the property has a mix of forest and grazing land (we run some sheep here). There are many places to walk, enjoying the diverse views from the high grazing paddocks and then plunging into the forest along our forest stone pathway and viewing/absorbing our beautiful waterfall. Check out the eucalypt trees along the driveway for koalas! And maybe by the time you come we'll have finished our new Tree-fern gully walk! Warning: you'll find it hard to leave!
    If you haven't been in the area before it's a spectacular combination of coast and mountain. Great driving, surfing, fishing, swimming (cold water!), beach lazing and rock hopping. Skenes Creek Surf beach is down the bottom of the hill, 5km by road. As you no doubt know, The Gt Ocean Rd. is a fabulous asset of the area and a must explore option. The 12 Apostles are also hugely popular and about an hour away (but better you take the whole day to explore). Then there's the Great Ocean Walk, a truly world class walk with sections available as day walks , numerous inland walks in the National Park, inspiring waterfalls, great picnic areas, fabulous MTB single trails nearby if you're so inclined. There's the outstanding Chris' Restaurant 2km down the hill and everything cosmopolitan available in Apollo Bay 15 mins away with numerous cafes and restaurants. That's if you can drag yourself away from The Eyrie itself.
  • Had such a great week! Beautiful views, lovely property and spacious house.

    Billy & Phoebe2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place is awesome, super lovely, great spaces, spectacular views and a waterfall on the property, such a great place to explore with the kids!

    Benjamin2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing property and no doubt, we hope to come back. The views were incredible and had all the nice touches to make for a great weekend away with friends. The private walking track on the property is just an extra bonus that you can't miss out on. Thanks again.

    Corey2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • In ten years of Airbnb-ing this is the best experience we’ve had. Stunning location and views. Charmingly cosy well-designed house of wood and bluestone and floor-to-ceiling windows, where everything just clicks. Andy a warm and kind host and Ben a great communicator. Breathtakingly well-kept grounds. An idyllic home away from home. Didn’t want to leave so we just stayed.

    Stuart2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • We were expecting incredible views and this place certainly delivered. A lovely home with absolutely stunning views! A peaceful retreat.

  • Awesome location, tidy house that has all you could need. Great for beach trips and Lil was so lovely and thoughtful with her recommendations and communication

    Mj2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful little house that felt so secluded but was a few minutes walk from the beach at the same time. A fully secure yard, kitchen with all appliances, and a wonderfully comfortable stay. Lil was a fantastic host, leaving thoughtful touches and replying to communications within minutes. A beautiful, modern house which I will definitely be visiting again.

    Matilda2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place surrounded by gum trees, yet just a few hundred meters from the beach. Worked very well for our family.

    Eliot2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lil’s place was warm and inviting, sparkling clean and in the perfect location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would be back there in a heart beat. Thanks for a wonderful stay Lil!

  • We had the loveliest stay at Lils place! We honestly can't wait to go back. The house is perfect! Especially for a family. It was really nice bringing along the family doggo. He loved being able to run free around the yard & we loved going for beach walks. Highly recommended!

    Hannah2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful space - wish we could have stayed longer!

    Sophie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A very welcoming home in Skene’s Creek- perfect for a relaxing holiday with family and friends. Right near all that Apollo Bay and the GOR has to offer but beautifully quiet, private and peaceful. A groovy feel, nicely styled and a lovely setting of trees and birds. A distant view of the water. Would highly recommend for a holiday.

    Julie2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was squeaky clean. The amenities was very accommodating. It was a smooth check in and check out for us. Location wise, this house is very close to the beach. All in all, we had a fantastic time staying at the place.

    Fenella2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best Airbnb places we have ever stayed in. Beautiful house placed on the verge of the forest with exotic birds visiting your balcony. Very comfortable - not only for one family as there are additional beds downstairs and in the playroom situated outside. Toys for the kids, indoor fireplace, well equipped BBQ, huge veranda. And last but not least wonderful design which makes you wish to stay longer. After one night at Kate&Simon’s place we were seriously considering abandoning our plans to explore Great Ocean Road and stay there relaxing ourselves. To sum up - go there! :)

    Szymon2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Our long weekend at Skenes Creek Tree House was perfect. A lovely comfortable and clean home in a beautiful location. Highly recommended!

  • The views from both the living room and deck are amazing! The kitchen is well equipped and we were able to enjoy several wonderful meals overlooking the view. There is a beautiful beach a couple of minutes walk down the street. The location is great, between a couple of great little towns and only a couple of hour’s drive to the 12 Apostles.

    Carla2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at Skenes Creek and would highly recommend it to others. It is a great beach house, it was comfortable and well resourced. There are great views from the balcony and it is an excellent place to have meals and to relax. The beach is an easy stroll away. What's not to like? We went to this place to relax and this we were certainly able to do that.

    Ian2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place, so close to the Beach with amazing amenities, plenty of living space and great deck space as well. Would definitely stay again as the house was so comfortable, easy and enjoyable!

    Anthony2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying at this house. Fantastic views, plenty of space for my little family to enjoy. Sadly because the house is so spectacular and I imagine in such high demand it wasn’t overly clean with sand on the floor and spiderwebs throughout the house but we didn’t let the little negatives ruin a great house with A grade views.

    Scott2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing property, suitable for 2-5 people. Beautiful views of the ocean during the day and the stars at night.

    Suli2019-10-01T00:00:00Z

    Laura2019-08-25T00:00:00Z

    Skenes Creek, Australia

    Long Tide retreat is a beautiful property, set amongst the trees with breathtaking ocean and forest views. Natural beauty and vast expanse merges with an earthy and tranquil barn style guest house. A truly magical space to rest and retreat from the world.
    We are the last property at the end of the street, making for an incredibly tranquil setting. Our stunning property sits at the very end of a 1.5km dirt road, with breathtaking ocean views at the end of our quiet street. We are a gorgeous 10 minutes drive to Skenes Creek Beach, 15 minutes drive to Apollo Bay township & beaches, 60 minutes from Lorne and 25 minutes from the super cute inland town of Forrest. Our property exists within a generous opening amongst the surrounding forest. Our house and the guest house sit separately, 50 or so metres apart, giving you your very own space, but we are here (or not too far away!) if you need us. We are very happy to give you complete privacy and we are also available should you need anything as we live “next door”. The guest house is a unique 2 story + mezzanine barn style house, crafted naturally out of local and recycled timber. It has great energy with a wonderful, cozy, rustic feel. No traffic noise, no other houses nearby, just ours. The accommodation itself is natural, earthy, warm and very comfortable. The building was built chemical free and is so unique with its natural and recycled timbers and textures. The guest house comes with a very spacious living area complete with a luxurious fire place, air conditioning/heating split system; giving you comfortable temperature control no matter what the Otway forest delivers weather wise. The living area upstairs has two comfy couches to spread out on, a big arm chair and a cozy papasan chair in the reading nook. THERE IS NO GUEST WIFI AT LONG TIDE RETREAT as where we live is difficult and unreliable to service with a WIFI connection... but have no fear! We've made up for the lack of WIFI with other fabulous things.... We have heaps of books, magazines, a cupboard full of board games, drawing supplies and puzzles. There is a TV with regular regional TV channels and a blueray DVD player for any movies you may want to watch (current count is 150+ of our favourites on DVD). You can also bring a hard drive to plug into the DVD player to watch your own movies. There's also a Sony portable Bluetooth speaker for you to play your favourite music or podcast. You can access the internet with your smart phone or tablet via your own standard mobile data. The fireplace is magnificent when it's cold outside, and we will provide all the fire wood you need to keep you warm and cosy. Firewood and kindling are located in the downstairs carport and you are free to use what you need during your stay. When the storms roll in, there is nothing better than curling up on the couch by the fire with a book and a cup of tea. Please help yourself to kindling and firewood from the carport downstairs when required. For your convenience the split system AC unit provides instant heat at the touch of a button, to keep you warm before you get the fire going. Adjoining the living space we have a quaint, clean and functional kitchen completely set up with everything you need. Kitchen staples including oil, butter, margarine, salt + pepper, cow's milk, soy milk and almond milk, lots of herbs and spices and some non perishable items in the cupboard are available. If it's in the kitchen, you're free to use it. The fridge/freezer, gas oven, gas cook top and microwave are all high quality updated appliances helping to make it easy to stay in and retreat. There's plenty of inside and outside dining space, perfect for exhaling for a short or long stay. We have a BBQ on the deck ready for you to use while soaking up the summer sunshine. BEDROOM 1: is equipped with a king bed, with a large wardrobe space and bright, north facing window out to the garden. BEDROOM 2: has a queen sized bed and is found in the upstairs mezzanine which is accessed via the attic ladder. The roof height is around 170cm at it's peak and pitches down either side, so it's cosy, but be sure to watch your head if you're tall. The roof window comes complete with block out blind, and easily opens right out to catch the breeze. You can also view the sun or moon rise to the east, or open to gaze at that wonderful starry sky on a clear night. Beds are supplied with quality linen and beautiful natural soft goose down doonas. All towels are also supplied, dried in our solar power drier making them soft and fluffy. The downstairs full bathroom is large, bright and luxurious, it blends a beautiful polished concrete floor with the natural textured timber walls and ceiling. It has a large shower complete with an amazing huge waterfall shower head. There is a gorgeous enamel claw foot bath, which can be enjoyed day or night, whilst watching the bird life in the neighbouring forest, or the stars on a clear night. There is a second toilet and sink upstairs also for those middle of the night trips. Stepping out upstairs you will find the spacious viewing deck extending directly outside from the living space. It comes complete with big table, chairs and a BBQ. It's from here you will want to do some koala and bird watching or take in the sounds, smells, and sights of the forest and ocean. In our kitchen we offer complimentary coffee beans ready to grind fresh and a selection of 10 beautiful organic teas. Occasionally we will have eggs to share from our chickens, bring your own just in case! Many native animals live in this space with us. Koalas regularly visit as do wallabies, kangaroos and echidnas. The bird life is phenomenal, and incredible to listen to at first light or dusk, especially when the kookaburras start laughing. Oh, and the owls! You might get a glimpse of our resident Powerful Owl or the Boobook. Our favourite part of day is that dreaminess of sunset, where the sky is often ablaze with intense colours that fill the atmosphere. The elevation expands the horizon in a way that really opens up the sky. On a clear night the sky is truly something you have to witness. With no light pollution, the stars will literally take your breath away. It is a totally different sky to anything you will see in the city or with lights around. If you aren't feeling like heading to the beach, just stay in for a glass of wine on the deck or in front of the fire, or why not do some star gazing out the window from the deep claw foot bath? From the luxury of the pillow top beds to the organic tea and coffee on offer, we have created this space for you to stop and really sink in and relax. Give yourself permission to do nothing! On our side of the fence we have 3 chocolate labradors. Freckles the eldest, Frankie the middle and Phoenix the youngest, who is Frankie's daughter. They are wonderful and love any opportunity to meet people. Phoenix likes to bark when someone arrives to let everyone know someone is here, but she is adorable, friendly and will always respect your space. We have a chicken coop with 11 girls laying eggs most days and a bee hive that helps pollenate our growing fruit tree orchard. Dale runs his Osteopathic clinic by appointment from the downstairs portion of the barn on Wednesday-Saturday. Patients will come and go on those days from the separate space underneath the barn. The treatment room is totally separate from the accommodation. If you'd like to chat to Dale about Osteopathy please get in touch.
    Skenes Creek North is a semi rural but mostly forest coastal landscape. To give you an example we have about 4 acres of cleared space and the rest is natural bush. Our neighbours are similar, some have a little more cleared space for orchards and grazing animals. We are about 400 metres above sea level. As such we are often above the sea mist in summer, and can also be right in the cloud mist in winter. It's magical. Skenes creek itself is in front of us and is a beautiful picturesque town ship on the edge of Apollo Bay. The town itself is just houses and a beach, with the exception of a caravan park, which sells newpapers, coffee, and milk. The area is pristine national park as part of the Otway Ranges National Park and an endless number of beaches that extend in both directions along the great ocean road. It is a natural paradise and is so fun to explore in either direction, including inland where you will find old growth forest, waterfalls, and some tourist attractions such as the Otway treetop walk and redwood forest. The township of Forrest is a haven for nature lovers, in particular moutain bikers due to its extensive range of trails. It also has a wonderful local brewery, an equally cool general store and is also the home of a boutique chocolate shop.
  • We had such a great weekend at Dale and Jackie's place. It was obviously renovated with love, the hosts were very responsive and we felt very at home. The view and the balcony were worth the trip alone. We'll be back!

    Jess2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Long Tide is hands down my favourite place to be down the Great Ocean Road. Beautiful, relaxing and all round pleasant, I’ve been several times and regretted none of them. There’s nothing like making yourself a warm meal in the kitchen and chilling on the porch with a nighttime view of the ocean and all the stars in the sky, surrounded by rustling forest and clean, crisp air. Dale and Jackie are wonderful hosts, and I look to forward to being back at some point in the future.

    Leon2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great relaxing stay in a beautiful part of Victoria. All the small touches to make a peaceful weekend away. Will come back!

    Mark2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect escape from the city. So serene, relaxing and calm! Dale and Jackie's place is in a picture perfect spot and is beautifully set up. Thanks for a lovely stay!

    Olivia2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Our long weekend at Long Tide was incredible! 5 stars for everything - absolutely beautiful location, stunning house, very comfy bed, cosy fireplace, lots of info about things to do in the area. Jackie and Dale were super friendly and helpful when we saw them, but the place is also separate and private so we felt like we also had our own space. They also had one of the best tea collections I've seen! Very much hoping to be back one day :)

    Katie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Jackie and Dale provide an amazing space to get away and experience nature in one of the most amazing places in the world. The property was dreamy, and the surrounding nature was stunning. We were lucky enough to watch a storm roll in over the ocean, it was like a scene from a fantasy movie. The cabin itself was so beautiful and cozy. It was filled with thoughtful little touches, such as a large selection of gourmet teas, a fireplace, books, amongst many other things. Jackie and Dale (as well as Freckles, Pheonix and Frankie) were lovely and genuinely made us feel welcome, giving us a tour of the property and offering some great recommendations in regards to local activities and dining. Thank you again for an amazing experience and we cannot wait to visit again.

    Glen2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous! Amazing space to relax in but easy to access Apollo Bay or head into the Otways

Climbing the hill for sunset, talking to ponies, enjoying a cozy fire side spa... perfect for an easy weekend away. Be sure to have a chat with the hosts, there's many excellent tales to be told about the history of this place. Heartily recommend this wonderful space, so full of life and character.

    Jim2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay, so quirky and original. Lots to see around the gardens including a koala bear called “Barry” (when he decides to come visit) and a 97 year old cockatoo called “Cocky Doodle” who cohabits with a rabbit! Superb communication and helpfulness. We used the wood burner as it was cold and were supplied with plentiful kindling and logs. The barn featured a large jacuzzi bath which was lovely. Definitely recommended.

    John2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here - the place was lovely, clean and well taken care of. The location is perfect and the cute animals just added to what was already a great trip!

    If you looking for a rustic beach house, right on the Great Ocean Road, with sea views and immediate walking access to the beach then this is the place to park up f,or your perfect family beach holiday. Relax on the front deck with your morning coffee, pull back the bi fold doors and enjoy the open plan living into the kitchen. Its the perfect place to spend the summer, set up as a home away from home. It easy for friends and family to visit from Melbourne and just 6kms from Apollo Bay.
    It's a cool place with a good vibe. It's rustic on the outside and it's simple and cosy open plan with all the mod cons on the inside nestled into the hillside. You will fall asleep listening to the crashing sound of the waves, in luxe linens and comfortable beds. Everyone will love the bath in the spacious bathroom overlooking the backyard your grandparents use to have. Watching the cockatoos dive through the trees and arguing with each other. Over summer the natives are like Xmas trees with their red flowers. There is a TV in the living area and a second one in the Master bedroom with a small ensuite. All the bedrooms are carpeted, with floating floorboards in the kitchen. The big wrap around couch means a cosy evening in with the family watching movies or just chewing the fat and planning the next day. The kitchen is all set up for the cooks, with a big island in the middle, a freestanding electric oven and a 6 burner gas top. There is a brand new washing machine and dryer for those staying longer and a dishwasher and microwave. Outside is the type of property that if you wanted to you can set up a tent in the backyard. The property is fully fenced and sometimes, just sometimes, you might just spot the big koala wandering through the backyard...
    A beach lifestyle awaits with scenic views and a country feel. All next to a small town with everything you need
  • Apollo bay is a pretty busy little town, so staying at Skenes creek is a quieter alternative to the hustle and bustle , especially around Christmas. Skenes is closer to Wye river and Kennet river which with beautiful beaches and nice cafes we visited frequently. The house is definitely a ‘shack’ from the outside but internally it is very cosy. It is a beautifully appointed space, with beautifully detailed kitchen and bathroom and comfy lounge. It has everything you need and everything you have is ....well just very nice. We would have liked to steal many of the utensils and the bed too to have at our own home. The beds were especially magnificent . After spending the day at the beach we all slept well from exhaustion and the sound of waves crashing on the rocks. Living busy lives the quality of sleep was a major amenity. The house is in no way massive and it is slightly further from the beach than we had hoped, but after spending two weeks there we were very sorry to leave. Our two kids (aged 3 and 5) are already asking to go back. Excellent communication from Jane. Thank-you.

    Naomi2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great little beach stop for travellers with all the modern features you need, easy access and great views.

    Christopher2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Expect to feel a bit let down by the exterior of this property on arrival.. But the interior more than makes up for it. A wonderful, comfortable beach retreat with plenty character and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay across the road from the beach.

    Lorraine2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely enjoyed our stay. Beautifully renovated home just like everyone said. Few steps to a private beach and two minutes drive to another beach where the kids used the boogie boards provided by the host. Lots of amenities. We’ll come back if chance permits.

    Rachelle2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house with stunning sea views from the deck and main bedroom. Well equipped kitchen and beautiful big bathroom. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

    Megan2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • The house is newly renovated and has stylish touches. The kitchen is well stocked with basic cooking needs; utensils, oils, vinegars, spices and some basic condiments. It felt more like staying at a friends house than renting a strangers house. My 5 year old loved how it felt like home and how close it was to the beach. And she LOVED the bath tub!

    Rachel2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely comfortable home close to beach. Although old looking on the outside it’s tastefully renovated inside with everything we needed for our stay. Comfortable beds and couch for relaxing.

The local wildlife were fun to interact with during our beautiful barbecue dinner on the balcony, with amazing views of Apollo Bay. Sleeping with a view was lovely too, every room was stylish and clean. We loved coming home to this villa every day of our trip and will definitely be back again.

    Alex2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely stunning! The photos don’t do the view or the place justice! Great facilities and easy check in, having nature so close is an added bonus. Have recommended others to stay, which says it all.

    Gavin2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice house, stylisch, modern well maintained and very clean. Located in a beautiful hillside with stunning view including a small view of the bay. Ray was extremely nice, gave us a warm welcome including a small guided tour to a nearby tree with koalas. In addition we enjoyed a lot feeding the colorful parrots on our porch with the seeds Ray provided! A perfect stay!

    Kristen2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A really unique and magical place directly on the great ocean road. There is so much thought, care and attention to detail within the cottage, and this extends to the whole property. Between the gardens, the sunset hill, the ponies, cocky-doolie and colourful crochet on every surface - we were blown away, and would love to return.

    Rachel2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • An absolutely beautiful piece of property right in front on the beach. This stay was perfect and there is nothing we would have changed about it. We will absolutely staying here again! Thank you for your hospitality Lesley and Ebony. You were lovely and very welcoming

    John2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at 'The Beach' cottage and couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location. The cottage is right by the water and the front space means you had hang out on a hammock and watch the waves. The space also has a gorgeous spa bath to relax in after a day hiking or day tripping around the Great Ocean Rd. The location is right near Apollo Bay for easy access to the supermarket / restaurants and bars, as well as local walks. Loved it and will definitely be back!

    Michelle2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • The hospitality we experienced was next level amazing. The place is spotlessly clean and so full of character. The view is incredible. All round amazing!

    Matt2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • SIMPLY AMAZING!! For us we were just in heaven. The hospitality, care and attention mixed in with the outstanding cozy cottage, was one we won't forget. With our own garden and beach views we were truely spoilt. We came for the sun and the beaches but when the wether didn't grant us that, the local site seeing and the log fire with a bottle of wine was actually even better. Their is an amazing 97 year old Cockatoo called Cocka-Doolie who thinks he is a rabbit (Who will blow your mind...Worth the trip alone) and Koalas a few feet (if you are lucky) just munching away in their natural habitat. Get back to nature, ground yourself and unwind at Mike, Lesley & Ebony's cottage. Thank you so much guys xxx

    Oliver2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place is part of an overall farm and that is what makes it so amazing. This beach house is so incredible to spend time in. It is hard to leave. The front yard space is magical. You can spend the entire day going from chair to chair in the yard and never getting sick of the amazing sea view. Hosts are welcoming and happy to chat and show you around. The local tips they gave help make our trip even better. This place is a must to stay. Perfect for couples in any weather.

    Sitting elegantly on a hill top, looking over the expansive emerald green rolling hills and the deep blue ocean below is this three bedroom cape cod style cottage right out of a story book. Cradled by majestic cyprus trees, with expansive country land scapes on one side and sweeping ocean views on the other, "Ananda" is a blissful little piece of paradise, minutes from the hustle bustle of Apollo bay township.
    The gardens all around the cottage will make your stay a private and immersive experience in the surrounds of the stunning natural beauty. Relax outdoors on the verandah wrapped all around the cottage, or on the front lawns enjoying a cuppa or a glass of wine or reading under the shade of the looming cypresses, looking up from time to time, at the fantastic ocean views and the rolling hills. It is this feeling of being in perfect harmony that gives the cottage it’s name – “Ananda”, meaning bliss in Sanskrit (an ancient Indian language about 6000 years old). This two story cottage retains its old world charm refreshed with brand new furniture and very well equipped to make your stay so comfortable that you won’t want to leave. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 living areas, 2 bathrooms and an open plan fully equipped kitchen and dining area which makes this ideal for families, friends, couples or wanderers, looking to stop a while to soak in the ravishing beauty and serenity that the area has to offer.

We have made an indoor play den for the children to enjoy. With lots of room and a generous stock of all types of entertainment, they won't want to leave either! Make the most of the charming outdoor lawns and space to run and play.

  • Fabulous location and views, the house was very clean and had everything you could need in terms of finishings - the upstairs loft area is gorgeous. The listing is 100% accurate and the house/location exceeds expectations - could certainly do a long stay. If you are wanting a quiet location to just watch the world go by then this is a must!

    Claire2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

  • Beautiful cottage perched high up on the hill overlooking Apollo Bay. We had a very peaceful stay and were greatly entertained by the large open kitchen, huge front yard, myriad games provided, and portable speaker. It's a drive to Skenes Creek/Apollo Bay but you can be on the foreshore in less than 10minutes. A serene spot perfect for a change of pace.

    Cj2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

    Deservingly known as paradise by the sea, Apollo Bay & Skenes Creek is midway along the majestic Great Ocean Road, in the shelter of Cape Otway and on the lowest slopes of the beautiful Otway ranges. Valleys just a few kilometres out of town are full of rainforest, streams, waterfalls and fireflies. Once the province of timber workers and farmers, the hills are now also occupied by artists, holiday makers and beach lovers. Every water sport under the sun can be enjoyed at Apollo Bay - surfing, fishing, swimming, diving, and boating of all sorts. Bush walking in the Otways, wet or dry, is spectacular. The rain and wind rarely reach the lower levels of the older rainforest which has its own lush climate. Down the Great Ocean Road at Cape Otway are some of the most breathtaking walks in the country. Find lots of information on sights and things to do in our house compendium!
  • Our stay at Mavi Beachouse was incredible! Located on the Great Ocean Road, we were spoilt with beach views and sounds of the ocean every day! The home is right in front of a spectacular swimming beach - perfect for a relaxing swim or even a surf! The house was cosy and had everything we needed for our stay. We were especially impressed by the cleanliness of the home and it's brilliant location - just 5 minutes from Apollo Bay. Our favourite feature overall was Mavi's massive windows. It was the perfect spot to read a book, share a glass of red and just unwind. Thank you Maddy for inviting us into this truly beautiful home. Definitely would recommend!

  • Mavi provided us with a great space to enjoy the delights of the Great Ocean Road. Being able to gaze out at the beach, literally across the road from the balcony, bedrooms and backyard was really special and a real value add for staying at the property. We will be back again soon!

  • We absolutely loved our stay at Mavi Beach House. My partner and I travelled from Brisbane for a winter long weekend with a small group of friends from Melbourne down the Great Ocean Road. We wanted somewhere quiet, beach front and with a fireplace where we could enjoy some quality time together. The brief on location was somewhere half way between Melbourne and the 12 Apostles, as we wanted to include this in our trip, the Skenes Creek location was perfect. The kitchen was fully equiped with everything we required for a 'family' cook up, there's a grocery store near by in Apollo Bay. The balcony area was the perfect spot for a wine at sunset and the living area was roomy and comfortable for a wine, a chat and many laughs by the fire into the night. The beds [and pillows] were all super comfy too! We would 100% recommend Mavi Beach House and hope to visit again.
