The Space

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 a marble topped table and 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. Newly reopened with brilliant views, excellent bar prices and great food, this is a wonderful asset for the community in many ways. All visitors are most welcome.

Nature lovers can stroll along the river or bicycle or canoe down the valley to the rainforests of the Great Otway National Park. From there you can 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.

  • Fiona was easy to communicate with, extremely friendly, obliging and understanding.
    Our request to be able to arrive early and checkout a little later, as we were traveling with young children, was responded to very positively. My family and I were very comfortable in the house, which had everything we needed for a relaxing winter break. We especially enjoyed the fantastic location of the house, as we were able to walk everywhere-to the beach, playground, a great variety of shops, the lighthouse and wonderful walking tracks. Fiona had left a detailed summary of local highlights and other information which was very helpful. Fortunately the rain held off and although cold, the sun did shine and we loved the whole experience. Thank you again.

  • Fiona was very quick with her responses and very friendly over email. She also provided us with a lovely run down of places to eat at and things to see in the area. The house itself was located within walking distance to restaurants, coffee shops, the beach, the lighthouse and the pub. The house was really clean, comfortable and cosy. There's two big bedrooms with double beds and a third bedroom with bunks. We really enjoyed the big front yard and the very effective heating system in the lounge room. House with great warm character in a location where everything is at your fingertips. Would definitely recommend.

  • Thanks for the great stay at your beach house in Aireys Inlet! The place was well equipped with everything we could need and we loved being so close to the beach. Fantastic instructions on how to get there and things to see and do were provided. Fiona was also accommodating of a late check-out which was much appreciated. We finished the half marathon and had a wonderful weekend away - thanks Fiona!

  • This beach house is in a fantastic location - metres from a playground and clearing, a great walk to the lighthouse and not far from the beach for fishing, surfing or sandcastle building!
    Fiona was very prompt, friendly and helpful. She provided great tips on what to see and do, where to eat and what's available in the area which came in very useful. The house was cosy, as described and well stocked with books, CD's, DVD's, games and necessities. It had a great fence so it felt quite secluded and private, great outdoor area and good feel to it.
    We had a great time at the local markets - good coffee, locally made produce including superb meat that we cooked on the BBQ, handicrafts, books and clothes. A wonderful 'base' to explore the region from and also ideal to simply relax and rejuvenate. It would be wonderful any time of year.
    Thanks Fiona - had a great family holiday!!

  • Myself and my 2 friends had the most wonderful two night stay in this beautiful house. It was everything it said it would be and more and Fiona was so easy to communicate with. You will not be disappointed with you're stay here. We really felt this house was an absolute gem and are already planning to return!!!

  • We very much enjoyed our 2 night escape at Satis Beach house. Very comfortable and Fiona was always prompt with a reply to our queries. Would recommend the beach house to prospective visitors to Aireys Inlet.

  • We had a great weekend at satis beach house and recommend it to others. The accommodation was conveniently located opposite the shops and only a short walk to the river and beach. The home was very well equipped, clean and tidy, private and with comfortable furniture and bedding. Would definitely consider another visit. Thanks Fiona

  • A long weekend at Satis Beach House and Aireys Inlet was just what we needed! Despite the coolish weather -- which meant we weren't brave enough to take a swim ;) -- the beach (with its interesting rocks and cliffs), lighthouse, and general area provided beautiful scenery for wandering about. The Beach House was a perfect cosy abode for our group, and we only wish we could have stayed longer to make the most of the canoe, games, gazebo and garden space with some more lazy days.
    Fiona was the perfect host providing detailed instructions for our stay and was always quick to respond to our last minute queries. Thanks very much for our stay and we would love to come back in another season for a few more days!

  • It's a really nice house tucked away close to the inlet itself and opposite the bottom shops at Aireys. We loved that you can so easily walk down to the beach near the inlet, round to Fairhaven, up to the famous lighthouse. The house itself is clean and welcoming and exactly as described in the listing – good books and dvds on the shelves, a good size garden to sit in and a large BBQ, a well set up kitchen. Fiona was also an efficient, welcoming, responsive and helpful host – all instructions very clear and reasonable. We really enjoyed our stay and recommend the house to others.

  • Great short stay on the Ocean Road over Christmas. The house is perfectly located to see the Ocean Road and very close to creek, beach and sea, although it was a little chilly and windy during our stay. Close to good cafes (with wifi) and shops. The house is well-equipped - we used the barbecue for Christmas dinner and spent a morning out in the canoe (a bit heavy to carry to the creek, but great fun once you get it there!)

About
Two semi retired teachers and farmers who enjoy wide open spaces and near self sufficiency. We love exploring cities, small towns and wild places, seeing how people live their daily lives and pretending we are locals whenever we can. Our beach house on the Great Ocean Road is a contrast to our life on the farm. We feel blessed to be able to spend time at both. Satis Beach House is comfortable, quirky and just around the corner (email hidden) beach, river and cliff top walks along the coastline of southern Australia. Excellent cafes, restaurants, bookshops and galleries add to the coastal mix at Aireys Inlet. We have travelled to the UK and Europe recently, staying at some wonderful airbnb places along the journey. Atmospheric, welcoming and in incredible places but the best part was meeting sympatico people who I am sure we will meet again. Perhaps at their places, perhaps at ours....or perhaps at yours! Enjoy our beach cottage and don't forget to walk to the lighthouse at dawn, or put your toes in the water no matter what the temperature..............
