About this listing
A cosy beach shack with a quirky vibe, tea-treed garden and privacy yet so close to the inlet, beach, shops, lighthouse and cliff walk. No view, no spa, not a glass box but fun for all! Welcome to Satis, which means 'enough' in Latin. And it is.
Satis Beach House is a relaxing and comfortable log cabin in the charming seaside town of Aireys Inlet. Our house is on the ocean side of Australia's famous Great Ocean Road, just around the corner from the beach. Living, dining and kitchen areas are open plan with leather couches, dining table and chairs, a well stocked bookshelf, TV/DVD and CD players.
The three bedrooms house a queen sized bed in the main, a double in another and bunks in the third bed room. There is a bathroom with shower and toilet, and a separate toilet near the laundry alcove. Our holiday house is set up for beachside living with a canoe, life jackets and paddles, boogie boards, games and books for your enjoyment.
In the large, sheltered garden there is a BBQ, a Weber, a long teak table and driftwood chairs and benches, and plenty of space for a game of boules. An insect proof gazebo with chairs is perfect for hot summer nights. Our garden is private, fenced and treed with a variety of native birds frequenting it.
The house is great for up to six people, no more. A minimum booking is for two nights but on long weekends we prefer three nights. A late check out may be available in the quieter times. During the summer holidays, preference will be given to a weekly booking or a minimum of at least five nights. During Easter, preference is given to a booking of four or more nights.
Linen is not provided (see house rules).
The beautiful beach, ever changing inlet and coastal walks begin just around the corner. What we lack in sea views, we make up for in close proximity to everything - to the surf beach, inlet and rock pools, cliff top and Surf Coast walk, to Split Point Lighthouse, the skate park, shops, cafes and gourmet restaurants and the famous Aireys Pub. A beach walk will bring you to the fantastic Fairhaven Surf Life Saving Club with brilliant views, excellent bar prices and great food, this is a wonderful asset for the community. All visitors are welcome.
Nature lovers can stroll along the river or bicycle or canoe down the valley to the rainforests of the Great Otway National Park. Hike through the rainforest, smell the mint bush and the wattles, admire the wild flowers and the crazy gang gang cockatoos, breathe fresh air.....horse ride, hang glide or just hang out.
The Great Ocean Road is justly famous for spectacular views and beaches, rainforests, wildlife, bushwalking, restaurants, art galleries, markets and bookshops, and sports including surfing, swimming, snorkelling, cycling, running, golf, tennis, fishing and kayaking.
We invite you to Satis Beach House to experience Australia's fantastic Great Ocean Road.

About an hour and forty minutes drive from Melbourne. The bus stop is very close and the Great Ocean Road buses link to the Melbourne train via a connection at Geelong Station.
When you are here, lock up the car and walk!
Other Things to Note
Our base rate for weekdays is $180 per night during winter and $200 per night during weekdays for most of the year. This is for up to six people.
Most weekends are $200 per night, $220 on long weekends and in mid season and averaging $280 per night in the summer holidays....late December until the end of January.
The kitchen cupboards have some basics. You are welcome to use them in moderation but asked to replace the item if you use most of it.....or the lot!
The dishwasher works best if the tablet is put on the bottom of it as the detergent door doesn't always open properly.
As a traditional Australian beach house, we do not normally supply sheets, pillow cases and towels and ask you to bring your own. We always include doonas and doona covers, pillows (not pillow cases) and extra blankets as part of the normal rates. Please bring your own sheets (two per bed) and pillow cases, bath, hand and tea towels and a bathmat. And beach towels in summer, of course! If you wish to have all linen and towels supplied, there is an extra cost of $20 per person per stay to be left at the house.
We prefer a minimum three nights on the long weekends of Australia Day, Labour Day, Queen's Birthday, Anzac Day and the Grand Final and Easter is a four night minimum. We prefer a seven day booking over the Christmas holidays but will accept a five nights if there are vacancies. Special rates of 10% discount for bookings over a week, and a late check out may be available in the quieter times.
We ask that you hold no parties here and do not have extra people staying. Your bond will be in jeopardy if you do. If you wish to discuss your situation, we are very happy to review individual circumstances.
Please leave the BBQ clean. Strictly no smoking in the house. Please leave our house as you found it, make sure the heater is turned off, put the keys back in their respective places and empty the dishwasher.
Please put your rubbish in the right bins outside and leave the appropriate bins outside on the edge of the grass if it is a weekend stay.
Enjoy your holiday by the sea! And thank you for choosing to stay at our place.
