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, wineglasses, coffee and teas included.
All linen is provided.
The property is yours, but you have to share the beach!
Interaction with Guests
We will leave you alone. There is a key safe and general information (including our phone number) inside the house.
Apollo Bay is beautiful. It straggles around its harbour at the foot of the Otway Ranges, looking out to the mighty Southern Ocean. It is a sea change kind of place with real live locals. You will find locals fishing around the harbour, playing golf or footy, walking in the national parks, surfing, swimming and at the Saturday market- we don't mind a chat or a coffee either. Other locals include koalas, wallabies, whales and plovers.
The VLine bus stops at the Visitor Information Centre (700 metres).
Melbourne is a 2.5 hour drive (Geelong 1.5 hours, 12 Apostles 1.0 hour).

Lovely location, right near the beach as specified. The house was beautifully cosy and mirrored the pictures provided in the description. We were given recommendations for food in the area and they were great. Guest book a lovely touch.
Rex's Little Beach House is perfectly decorated and was ideal for a cozy weekend by the ocean. We loved our stay here.
We had a fantastic 3 nights at the Little Beach House.The location opposite the beach was great for beach walks and easy strolls into the Apollo Bay town centre.The house is cleverly designed, comfortable and perfect for two people. The property was spotlessly clean when we arrived.
Rex was an excellent host and although we were unable to meet him ,communication was easily achieved through email and phone calls . We would highly recommend this property .
The little beach house was a delightful place to stay.
We loved the architecture and the sustainable modular home concept.
Rex, was a great host and very thoughtful
We absolutely loved The little beach house! The perfect pad to rest, relax and explore Apollo Bay and the Great Ocean Road. Rex is a great host, the little beach house well equipped with everything you could possibly need.
The house was great, just as described. It was the perfect location for a relaxing weekend, with the beach across the street. We loved the space and design, it is perfect for two people for a cozy getaway. We are looking forward to returning again!
Thank you for a fantastic stay at the little beach house Rex. The house was exactly as described and was comfortable and well appointed. Apollo Bay was an excellent place to base ourselves and explore the great ocean road, we were even able to experience an amazing sunrise at the apostles! Would definitely stay again!!
