About this listing
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. Our spa is always ready for weary travellers and we are waiting to welcome you! 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 shower/bath, toilet and washing machine and kitchen, though dinner available by gourmet cook if required. I like to pamper my guests and there are often home baked items in there...please don't hesitate to mention though if you have specific dietary requirements...we can help. 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.
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, 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.
We also have a large permanently heated fully maintained spa ready for weary guests at the end of a long drive...and yes of course you can take a (plastic) glass of wine of whatever in with you.
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 BUT I do like to cook and can provide a meal for you (at pub prices) and would love a little notice to enable me to ensure I have gorgeous local ingredients available. A cooked breakfast of egg, bacon, eggs, mushrooms and tomato with juice, coffee, and pot set yoghurt with blueberries is approximately $17pp or there's pancakes with a variety of local fruits and other gluten free options available...just let me know..
And speaking of dinner I am happy to put together a sumptuous meal that might be local fish or seafood bouillabaisse or perhaps a taste of bush tucker (unique Australian flavours) in either fish, chicken or beef with a unique vegetarian meal with perhaps home-made pasta for those of you who don't like meat..let me know your tastes or diet and I can cater to them. I am happy to provide some menu choices if you contact me beforehand. Dessert will be something yummy and as locally sourced as I can manage all for $35-45 per person depending on the meal provided.
I am also able to put together a picnic with a little notice which you might like to take with you exploring our beautiful countryside and beaches...please give me a little time so I can make it extra special for you won't you?
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 from my own commercial kitchen 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 and spa, but we are usually home to lend a hand or answer questions. Please note the spa is not in the room.
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.
Our neighbourhood is coastal and we have lots of that to explore...pack a picnic (well I can help with that) and go see as much as you can...walk to the entrance itself to see seals...or check out the koala's on Raymond Island...kangaroos abound (pardon the pun) at Buchan caves...and there's so much more we could tell you about.
We are not in town so a car is fairly useful here. There is a bus however that goes into town about 2km away. We can help you with lifts and timetables if (URL HIDDEN) problems.
Other Things to Note
Just ask...we're really friendly. We do have a old dog called Gypsy and a older cat called Pea (we didn't name him really :) )
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. Please discuss first with us if you have an pet your would like to bring with you..(ours are elderly and therefore we are very careful with what type of pets we allow). Also we have lots of wildlife around here and our fences are not that secure.) 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 so Gypsy doesn't eat the buts. We also do not encourage crabs or other shellfish to be cooked in the room. Plz feel free to discuss this with us. The room is really for couples or two friends travelling together...perhaps with a small child/infant but not suitable for large families.
From Dec 01, 2015 - Feb 29, 2016 the minimum stay is 1 night.
