If your a bike riding enthusiast, this is the place to stay. Ride the Wbool to Port Fairy rail trail, its a great days ride there and back. Pack yourself a picnic or stop somewhere to eat. Stunning as you ride through countryside with no roads.
There are some great cafes only ten min walk away and the beaches are really beautiful. We have whales visiting at a certain time of year.
The famous Fletcher Jones gardens are across the Rd and our lovely botanical gardens are 15 min walk away. Local pool is next to the gardens if you fancy a few laps.

Talking to Kaaren was like talking to a sibling. She's accommodating, very friendly, and enthusiastic about any subject matter.
Felt so comfortable sleeping in her room.
It felt like you wanted to spend a little more time with her to know her better.
Lovely host...Thanks Kaaren, We miss you! :-)
Great hospitality, great host. The description is accurate. I really enjoyed staying the place.
My son and I enjoyed staying with Kaaren. It is a peaceful house and Kaaren is very friendly helpful. She kindly gave us a lift to an appointment in her car. I would certainly stay there again.
Kaaren was a wonderful warm and welcoming host. We were made to feel right at home and encouraged to enjoy her home and her hospitality. We enjoyed sitting to chat with Kaaren and she made both of our children feel both welcomed and valued as her guests. We loved meeting Juliet who was also welcoming and spoilt by us all with soft pats and admiration. Kaaren's home is very comfortable and beautifully kept. Waking up to gorgeous views of the beach and seeing the sun setting in the evenings lifted all our spirits. The house is close enough to the City centre to be a pleasant walk and in a quite neighbourhood. Adding fresh sea breezes ensured that we slept very soundly. Kaaren offered us some tasty and healthy breakfast selections and even though we were up early in the first two nights she ensured that we had everything we may need.
Had an absolutely wonderful stay at Kaarens home. We arrived on the later side from a long day on the Great Ocean Road and Kaaren stopped at no expense to make us feel welcome. All beds were very comfortable and the location provided all the comforts of home. Breakfast in the morning was an added plus! Thank you Kaaren!
We enjoyed staying one night at Kaaren's place. Her house is calm and cosy and she was very welcoming. Both bed and double sofa bed were very comfortable. We also appreciate the breakfast that was already prepared on the table when we woke up.
