Perched high in the Otways, just 5 mins from Skenes Creek beach (great surfing) and 11 mins from Apollo Bay, The Eyrie is a beautiful property with two split-level homes overlooking the Southern Ocean, with waterfalls, walks, rainforest and views at every turn.

Hi! We are the hosts of The Eyrie. We have two houses on the property, we've recently redecorated and refurnished both, and we hope you'll love them!

** you can find the other house by googling 'Eyrie Skenes Creek' **

The space
We welcome you to The Eyrie. We would love to have you stay, experience our rainforest and waterfall walk, and completely relax with sunset over the Otways.

This is a very special place, so in your planning try to allow a few days to see and experience all that is here. The most common comment of previous guests is that their stay wasn't long enough (but we also understand the real world doesn't always allow for that).

There are two houses on the property. So starting with this house ('Cliftons @ The Eyrie'): we cater for up to six guests very comfortably, but the house is wonderfully cosy for just two.

The living area downstairs has an efficient slow combustion stove, with wood just metres away. There's a large lounge area with a modern flat screen internet-enabled 4K TV and great views; an adjacent dining area with room for six offers even better views over the Southern Ocean and coast.

The tasteful kitchen, featuring beautiful blackwood benches and doors, has all the facilities and equipment you need including microwave, electric oven, gas cook-top, full fridge/freezer, large dishwasher, toaster, etc.

There is a large deck out to the sea-side with table, chairs and that amazing view, with the land below dropping steeply away into a deep gully and then on out to the coast and across the Otways. Alternatively, the north facing verandah gets the most sun and enjoys a protected garden setting.

The house is surrounded on all sides by lovely gardens. Plenty of parking is available.

On 27 acres, The Eyrie has a mix of rainforest and grazing land (we run some sheep here). There are many places to walk, enjoying the diverse views from the high grazing paddocks and then plunging into the forest along our forest stone pathway and viewing/absorbing our beautiful waterfall.

The Eyrie is very private. No one will disturb your stay, except perhaps the local wildlife - koalas, parakeets and rosellas, kookaburras, wallabies, and of course some resident sheep!

Cliftons @ The Eyrie is warm in winter - a slow burner combustion heater does the job - and delightfuly cool in summer courtesy of sea breezes that flow up the valley.

Despite the seclusion, you are connected (if you want!): high speed wireless broadband to all rooms, flat screen TVs, restaurants and shops 10 mins away.

Please note: we do have an external security camera in the entranceway, to monitor the house driveway when we are not there (we do not live on-site).

Where you’ll be

Skenes Creek North, Victoria, Australia

The Great Ocean Road on the southern coast of Victoria is one of the most beautiful parts of Australia...and Apollo Bay is the perfect place to experience it. A natural protected bay with gorgeous beaches and fantastic restaurants, never too busy, never too quiet. Surrounded by the Otways, a rainforest mountain range that extends along the coastline and provides its own unique experiences, including waterfalls, treetop walks, and incredible hiking and immersion in Australian fauna and flora. Koalas are everywhere, and the birdlife has to be seen to be believed.
