The space

Welcome and thank you for checking our listing!

The house:
We have a bedroom with queen sized bed and access to a private bathroom. Your private balcony is overlooking the Barwon river which offers you amazing views. In addition to your bedroom you can make use of small sitting room with TV. What we will be sharing is the use of the fully equipped kitchen (with owners). The house has two levels, with a few stairs between.
Available only to 3 or 4 people of the one group: we can accommodate 1 or 2 extra persons in sofa bed, if you are all willing to share your bathroom with each other. There is an extra cost of $50 per night for this.
We also have a single folding bed which would be suitable for a child travelling with parents - no additional cost.
There is parking outside of the property in a safe, quiet court location.

What to do:
House is located in a picturesque suburb 3 km from downtown Geelong. Find out more about Geelong from the VisitVictoria website.

Less than a 30 minute drive to start of the Great Ocean Road, one of the great Australian attractions and offers the most spectacular sightings you can imagine. The house is even closer to Bellarine Peninsula where you will find beautiful beaches, farms and wineries.

How to get to us:
We are less than an hour by car or train to downtown Melbourne. 70 minutes from Melbourne's International (& Domestic) Airport and 30 minutes from domestic airport at Avalon near Geelong. The Airport buses link Geelong to both airports.

We are looking forward to welcoming you.

Interaction with guests

We let our guests decide how much they wish to interact. Most guests arrive in the evening and we tend to see more of them in the morning at breakfast - it is up to you how much you want to spend time with the hosts.

There is extremely limited public transport to access our home. Most of our guests have been travelling in their own cars or hire cars.

Our stay with Alison and Les was only short but very welcoming, very comfortable beds and waking up to the beautiful view inspired an early walk along the river. Would definitely recommend a stay there.

We stayed for a night before departing for the Great Ocean Road. The view from the balcony was lovely and the room was clean. Alison was very kind - she allowed us to use the laundry facilities and made sure we were well-fed during breakfast. Much appreciated!

We spent a fabulous night with Alison and Les. There is no need to talk about the cleanness or location of the house, all perfect, and more than perfection you can have 180 degree mountain view on the balcony. Alison and Les are so considerate. When we said we would cook dinner by ourselves, they had set the dinner table for us when we were back. Les also played Mandolin for us. It was really a lovely experience. 我们在Alison和Les家度过了美妙的一晚。关于房子的整洁度和位置(对于自驾的人来说),已不用多说,一切完美。更完美的是无论在自己房间的阳台,还是楼上的客厅,都可以看到180度的山景。两位房东都非常贴心,当我们说准备自己做晚饭,他们在我们回来的时候就帮我们摆好了餐桌,Les甚至在我们吃饭的时候为我们弹曼陀铃琴助兴。非常棒的体验。

Highly recommend! It was really lovely to stay at Alison and Les's place. We enjoyed the view looking outside from the room and enjoyed sharing the stories with each other. Les also showed us the artworks made by him, which are amazing. Alison made us nice breakfast. One night is too short. We wish we could stay longer in the future.

In our spare time together, my husband Les and I enjoy walks, cycling, playing and listening to music, attending music events, movies and some TV watching, and travelling locally, interstate, and overseas.
I (Alison) have lived for periods in the Netherlands and Canada some years ago. We have both travelled a bit to other parts of the world, and in 2011 we enjoyed a wonderful trip to the UK and south of France. We hope to visit the USA and Canada in 2013.
Les has retired from the work force and he plays golf at least two days a week. He is an accomplished leather artist, and spends time in his leather workshop here at home. He also plays the mandolin, and particularly loves Irish music.
I work full-time at the moment.
We love our present home in Highton (a suburb of Geelong). We have great views from our home of the Barwon River, across Geelong and to areas beyond. Our home is a short drive to the start of the Great Ocean Road, as well as to the Bellarine Peninsula with its beautiful beaches, farms and wineries. It is less than an hour's drive or train journey into downtown Melbourne (which is less than it takes from outer Melbourne suburbs). About 70 minutes drive to Melbourne's international and domestic airport, and less than 30 minutes to Avalon airport (domestic travel only, at this stage). There are airport buses between Geelong and these airports.
