Description

The space

As well as the ideal location, the house itself, is great. The living room has expansive glass and a double fire place, making it an all year around excellent abode to relax and entertain in.

The house sleeps 10 (2 Queen beds, 6 single beds). It has 3 bathrooms and a 4th shower outside.

Upper level:
Spacious, open plan living/dining area with large floor to ceiling windows, tastefully decorated with original modern artworks. Expansive views of Fairhaven valley and neighbouring forest with glimpses of the ocean.
Living area offers 2 large couches, TV/DVD/CD/Blue ray player and double sided fireplace.
Large balcony hugs three sides of the house, offering ample entertaining space. Gas BBQ, outdoor setting with umbrella and even a chiminea if you would prefer be outside with that glass of wine!


The large kitchen is well equipped with quality and numerous appliances. Huge bench space. The photos can do the talking.
Bedroom 1 - 1 queen bed and en suite bathroom
Bedroom 2 - 2 single beds
Bedroom 3 - Queen bed with floor to ceiling windows, doors to balcony
Bedroom 4 - (downstairs) 4 single beds
2 of which are portable trundles that unfold to conventional bed height. (these can easily be moved between upstairs and downstairs, if desired).
Laundry with washing machine and dryer

Ground Level:
Access to the downstairs area is by (almost fully covered) external steps, about 10 steps. There is no internal staircase.

Modern, bright second living area. Has glass concertina doors to outside. Heated with gas log fireplace. Table tennis, fooze ball table, TV, DVD, CD, books, games.
Bathroom and bedroom area (Bedroom 4 as above)
Carport and ample parking space. Additional shower outside.
Whilst covered doonas and pillows are supplied, guests are required to bring their own linen including, sheets, towels, pillow slips and bath mats.

Outside, there is a full size trampoline.

This is a unique spot as it is right beside the forest, yet, honestly only 6 minutes flat walk to the beach. Hence it has an 'away from the city', feel to it.

Guests have access to the whole house by themselves.

The area of Airey's Inlet-Fairhaven is a quieter destination than its neighbouring towns of Lorne (15km onward) and Anglesea (8km back) from Melbourne. Yet it is just 10min drive either side of these if you'd like to visit then retreat back to peaceful Fairhaven! The 6km of beautiful beach is fantastic all year round whether for walks or surfing and swimming. The new Fairhaven Surf Life Saving clubhouse opened on Dec 20 2014 and offers great evening meals and a bar at which you are most welcome. Apart from the beach with its obvious beauty and water sports, other activities/places of interest in this area include: local galleries, cafe's, bush and beach walking, horse riding and golf to name a few. There is a shopping strip with a pharmacy, small super market, cafes, ( excellent one is Airey's foodstore and deli) fabulous Airey's Inlet Hotel, (not your average Pub!), hardware and restaurants including Freestone's Roadhaven, A La Grecque and others.

I do know of a place where you can see koalas in the wild! And, as is well known, The Anglesea golf course has kangaroos grazing especially at dusk!

Hi ,
I'm lucky enough to have a gorgeous holiday house very close to the Great Ocean Road. I love my friends and family to use it. However, my darling kids (all 4) who have very successfully used Air BnB over the past 12 months both overseas and in Australia, have pressured me to add my place to AirBnB!
Consequently, here it is! I live in Brighton, Victoria and am now at the 'stage' where the kids have 'flown'. They range from 24-31, and do appear back at the door sometimes, but are basically "gone''. My love of travelling plus the motivation and get up and go of my kids , currently has them spread from London, Nurenburg-Germany, Brazil and Koln-Germany!
My business, 'Ladies Back On Your Bike', has me pretty busy yet able to travel a bit too. Consequently, I manage a fair bit of travelling , either with my husband, or a group of friends, or even solo. This travel usually involves a cycle trip . My most recent trip included a cycle with a friend, from Nurenburg to Paris.
As long as I can eat healthily, (lots of avocado and yummy tapas, my favourites) cycle, enjoy my family and friends, do a wee bit of charity work, and through my business, inspire other women to cycle and constantly appreciate just how lucky I am....there is nothing else I need.

Please, enjoy my place, the 6km of beautiful beach, the walks from my back door into the National Park, the walks from Lorne...the eateries!
