Our peaceful property has the best of both worlds with sea & bush views. Your self contained accommodation is separate and has everything you need for some time out. We are GLBTI friendly.
Welcome to Lakes Entrance and our little piece of paradise. We love meeting new people and having you stay with us while you take a breather from traveling or city life.
Our quirky B and B built of colourbond insulated steel, like our house, and is a peaceful and self contained space very private from the main house and completely self contained. It is decorated to a high spec inside with homely touches and comes with internet facilities, a comfy bed with pillowtop mattress, large verandah/deck for bird and wildlife watching, own bathroom with walk in shower, toilet and washing machine and kitchen. I like to pamper my guests and there are often home baked items in there. There are also other cooking facilities in the room. Our space is heated and cooled with a reverse cycle air conditioner and this gorgeous accommodation (well most people seem to think so) is all on one level with no stairs and is wheel chair and walking stick friendly. Please note though that the bathroom is not very large and some wheelchairs may not fit.
We love people from all nationalities visiting us and it's what enriches our lives. We love to get to know you all, especially those who understand the ethos of Airbnb (that this is our home and we delight in sharing it with you).
We have a great ocean view from the front of the property (your unit has bush views), are very friendly, though know you like your own privacy, and have a lot of local knowledge to ensure your stay with us is as interesting as possible. Just ask and if we can help, we will.
The accommodation is separate and away from the house, ensuring you have peace and quiet (although we can't guarantee the birds won't wake you). Lakes Entrance is a seaside resort that is fairly quiet but comes alive in Summer and Easter.
We have the train and bus that comes to Lakes Entrance and we can pick you up from the bus stop. Please let us know it's no problem.
A continental brekky is provided including eggs from our own chickens, juice, yogurt, granola, toast and jams.
There are lots of attractions in the area, boating, fishing and much more. We are 3-4 hours east from Melbourne and look forward to welcoming you to our home.
Most things are provided such as linen, towels, cutlery, crockery, coffee, tea, and lots of little extras or pick your own herbs and vegetables (seasonal) from the garden.
While the unit is really for 1-2 people, there is a double couch that might be suitable for a child if needed.
Check out is 11am or flexible especially if we have no one else coming but please consider that we do have to clean the room at some stage for our next guests. At this time of year in view of the amount of bookings it would be great if you could check out at 11am and in after 2pm. Just so I can make it clean and sparkly for the next guest.
We are GLBTI friendly.
Look forward to meeting you soon.
Your own self contained apartment (away from our house) with separate attached bathroom, kitchen, deck, bush views, but we are usually home to lend a hand or answer questions.
Interaction with guests
We can interact or not depending on your needs. We take great pride in being intuitive enough to see when company is required or your own space is more important and try to make sure that happens.
Other things to note
Just ask...we're really friendly.
We are not a rules kind of household but just ask you to respect our home as we would yours...its our little piece of paradise. We are happy to have you sleep in but please check with us if there are any guests following you the same day you leave so we have time to make the place as clean and welcoming as we did for you. There s no smoking in the room please but you can smoke outside and there are suitable containers provided. We also do not encourage crabs or other shellfish to be cooked in the room (a BBQ on your private deck is provided). Please feel free to discuss this with us. The room is really for couples or two friends traveling together (please note there is only 1 queen bed with a futon/couch that can be made up if required)...perhaps with a small child/infant but not suitable for large families. Just ask if you are not sure.

Hi my name is Carmel and together with my husband Mal would like to offer our self contained studio for travelers of all ages and backgrounds. We think we live in a kind of paradise and would love people to come and visit us. We love having the world come to us and welcome the chance to get to know people from all backgrounds...
We have recently moved to Lakes Entrance following in the footsteps of our good friends Nina & Graeme.
Our self contained ground floor unit has easy access for people in wheelchairs if required. We are both friendly people and like to talk to people or allow privacy when needed. I love to grow vegetables (well try at least), the chooks keeps me busy and I hope to get involved in the community around Lakes Entrance. I am also an avid footy fan (Australian Rules) and have been following the mighty Sydney Swans for 60 years!
I will enjoy finding out about the town's history and getting an understanding of our surroundings and what's available in the particular area. Things I can't live without....the usual a variety of good food, a glass of wine at the end of the day, and of course my hubby Mal. We look forward to welcoming you and hearing all about you and where you come from and what brings you to our part of the world.
