Our AirBNB space consists of a bedroom with a queen sized bed, a private bathroom, and a sitting room that has a fold-out bed that can be used for a third guest travelling with you.
Mostly we just have couples stay and use that space to themselves.
Welcome and thank you for checking our listing!
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 people of the one group: we can accommodate 1 extra person 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.
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.
Guests have their own bathroom. There is a balcony off the guest bedroom and sitting room. There is a small fridge downstairs for guest use.
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.
We love the views from our home. Also, there are lovely walks beside the river.
There is extremely limited public transport to access our home. Most of our guests have been travelling in their own cars or hire cars.
No smoking inside.
Cleaning fees only applied in exceptional circumstances.
Use anything you like in the kitchen but please clean up after yourself. Load things in the dishwasher and we'll take care of it from there.
Eat as much of the breakfast items as you like but please leave the other items.
Cleaning fees only if needed.
Alison and Les is our first airbnb experience which is wonderful and heartwarming! They have a cozy and spacious house with amazing view of river, greenery, city scenery etc. The environment is so nice and I was so lucky to see a Kangaroo jumping in front of me when i was standing at the balcony in early morning!
Alison and Les are really friendly and offer hospitality to me and my wife. They shared their stories, Les' leather craft, photos, having breakfast together and chitchatting with us, giving us tourist guide despite busy work on hand, and taking care of us during our stay. I knew it'll be a good stay so i chose to visit them, but it's still beyond my expectation. Thanks so much and we'll miss you!
ps: It's just pity that we don't have time to visit Les' workshop, what an amazing artist he is!
With Best Regards,
Clovis and Canny
Amazing views, very spacious bedroom/bathroom private area.
Alison & Les are very friendly and the breakfast was great!
Wonderful hospitality, brillant Sicht into the valley, excellent accomodation made with love. We Would like to come back. Thank you very much! Barbara and heinz
Fantastic accommodation with Alison and Les. Perfect location to explore the amazing surrounds. Yummy breakfast supplied to top off a very comfortable stay, thanks guys!
A room with a view indeed! An understatement. Panoramic and stunning views! Fabulous hosts, warm welcoming; clean environment. A home away from home. Will surely consider for my next visit without any hesitation. Many thanks Les and Allison for all the warm hospitality.
It's really nice experience to spend two nights here, the house has wonderful views, good facilities and quiet environment. The host provide excellent breakfast and kindly conversation. We do enjoy it! Thank you.
This is my first airbnb experience , I am so glad I have made the excellent choice by staying with Alison and Les.
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.
