Argo - Family Weekend GetawayKim Sbisa - 8th May 2022
We had a lovely weekend away at Argo. House was very spacious and the kids had their own wing upstairs. The view was beautiful and the visiting birds every morning were just gorgeous. Would highly recommend to any family.
Love the basketball court!
Mini Basketball court, table tennis, great views and fantastic location. Great place for a holiday.
Great house, location, lots of activities. Remember to bring all linen (bed linen, extra towel for bathroom floor). Oven mitts, tea towels, kitchen towels are also not provided remember to bring them.
Another great family holiday. Can’t wait to come back
Spacious house, beautifully styled. Location is excellent! Very central to the beach, shops, cafes and Lorne attractions. My kids enjoyed playing in the backyard , basketball ring and table tennis were great!
The location and views of the listing are convenient and incredible, with effortless ocean/beach views from both floors. The space provides endless entertainment for people of all ages. I cannot speak highly enough of the space! Be mindful to provide your own linen, including hand towels and bath mats. Cleaning instructions were strict and tough given that little was provided to clean with. Would also be mindful if you’re a group of young adults booking. Hosts advised that some messages disappeared leading to lack of replies, so be mindful to call if communication via airbnb is not working. Other than some small hiccups, the space itself is immaculate and perfect for a relaxing getaway with friends and family, with plenty to do, perfect location and breathtaking views!
Staying at Argo every year has been a great experience. A home away from home, with a great view of the ocean and plenty of places to sit, working from Argo is definitely worth having to work over the weekend.
Nice place!Manoj - 15th March 2020
Nice place! Would stay here again and recommend to all. Thank you.
Stunning viewNaomi - 10th March 2020

Definitely recommendDaniel - 12th February 2020
Stayed with a group of 10 in early Feb. came with high expectations based on photos and past reviews and they were absolutely met. Easy check in, impeccably clean, great location and fantastic views. Being the sporty type, we especially loved the basketball court and table tennis table. Would definitely recommend to someone looking for a group accomodation in Lorne

Great family houseRichard - 16th July 2019
Great location, wonderful views from living areas, would recommend.
Spacious HomeCMaree - 24th April 2019
The house was large and spacious and worked well with two families. Two lounge rooms meaning there is lots of room for everyone to relax. Not sure how it would be in summer as there wasnt any cooling and it seemed warm even on cooler days.
Beautiful ViewSophie - 19th March 2019
Great stylish space, very clean and beautiful view of Lorne. Every aspect of my stay at Argo was wonderful - highly recommend.

Fantastic place to stay with a large group of people. Two lounge areas is an added bonus. Very clean and tidy
Truly Amazing Views!Jodi - 8th October 2018
House is just lovely and set up well. The views are amazing.
Spacious & Perfect for EntertainingThursdayJoyriders - 18th September 2018
4th year of staying here and yet again it was perfect for our group who came to Lorne for the Amy Gillet Gran Fondo. The new addition of the extra toilet and the small renovations were noticed and great. No Sink Detergent which was annoying and basic condiments like salt and pepper wouldn't go astray. We really enjoyed our stay.
Lots of spaceAnnH - 13th August 2018
Had a great stay with my family here. Amazing views and location only 10 minute walk to the beach and shops. BYO sheets, towels, kitchen condiments, paper towel. Kitchen utensils and pots and pans all provided. Was very clean and lots of space for a big family especially having two lounge areas. Good value
Great spot!Ebony - 24th July 2018
Space is clean and welcoming and was well stocked very clean and spacious Wood heater is amazing and plenty of wood provided. Bedrooms do get cold so bring an extra doona if you want to be comfortable. Overall a great spot terrific view
Homely with qualitycalais123 - 21st April 2018
I (Pop), my wife (Nannie) took our two sons, their wives and our 4 grandchildren children on a holiday we will never forget. The home was inviting and warm. Views were great and the accommodation was perfect. we will be back to Lorne in a heart beat!! same time next year!! Hope my sons can make it. One is from Perth and one from Mornington. Thank you GOR Hols. Chris
Lovely houseJanine - 26th March 2018
I booked the house for a group of friends for my birthday. The house was beautiful and worked well in terms of having different bed arrangements, two living areas and an outdoor area. Great views to the ocean and only a 10 minute walk to the main street via some hills. My only feedback to the owners would be that the kitchen would benefit from a tea pot, coffee plunger, measuring cups or a measuring jug and a hand citrus squeezer. Also one of my guests had some difficulty sleeping in the bunk room due to an animal in the roof.
Spacious Property Perfect for a Weekend Getaway!Juulz - 12th September 2017
ARGO is the perfect property for friends & family to book for a weekend or holiday getaway! We stayed here as a group of 8 of us for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the property and its close proximity to the beach, boardwalk & all attractions that Lorne has to offer. The view from the property is also spectacular! I would definitely recommend this property to others & look forward to booking it again in the future. Some of the propertys highlights included: -The fireplace -Large windows -Renovated kitchen & upstairs bathroom -Comfortable beds -Large outside deck -Stunning views & great location -Heaps of kitchen utensils -Plenty of parking space (in my opinion enough for 4x cars if need be!) The only constructive comment I would make about the property is that I thought a few basic amenities were missing & that some tips/notes should be listed on AirBnB or when booking: -As instructed, we brought our own linen (pillow covers, bed sheets, duvets etc) but found on arrival that this was all provided and that we were only required to bring the fitted bed sheets. It would be great if it was specified which linen was required. -Tip: It would also be good to have a note on the website reminding guests to bring their own tea towels as well as these are not provided, essential to have & are easily forgotten by guests. -No lighter available to start a fire in the fireplace (small detail but we had to go and buy one at the FoodWorks!) -Dishwasher tablets & dishwasher liquid were provided, but other than a few washcloths and 1x sponge there wasn't anything to properly clean the dishes with by hand. -There were no kitchen towels -It would have been a nice touch to have bathmats in the bathrooms as the floor can get quite chilly during the colder months On behalf of all of us that visited the property thank you!! We had the perfect weekend escape & well be back for sure!!! :)
Great value for a large family!Nichos - 24th June 2017
Argo was ideal for 3 families (10 people) to enjoy a great weekend break at Lorne. The upstairs living area and bunk room were certainly enjoyed by the younger members as they had their own space. The property has undergone an amazing renovation with great colours, furniture and fittings. Enough crockery cutlery and baking dishes to do some 'real' cooking. We really appreciated their offer of pay for 2 stay for three, which was why we chose the property. We would highly recommend Argo.
5 Stars for everything!Leesa - 9th December 2016
Argo was the perfect getaway for a family. Seperate kids/adults area, enough room for everyone! Wild life was an added bonus, with kangaroos and koalas seen in the yard.
Stay again for sureMichelle - 23rd November 2016
Comfortable house in a good location with plenty of room. Would stay again for sure.
Family FriendlyLisa - 16th June 2016
Our family and friends have enjoyed many wonderful holidays at "Argo" Argo is an extremely family friendly property.It is lay-back, spacious and functional. It has recently been simply and tastefully refurbished, including a complete refit of the kitchen benches,table and appliances. We intend to enjoy many more great times in the future at 10 Hopetoun Terrace.
Perfect for large familiesPico - 29th February 2016
We recently enjoyed a wonderful stay at Argo during the Surf Life Saving Carnival in Lorne. The house is ideal for a couple of families, in particular the upstairs level with it's spacious bunk room and teenage retreat. It's location is perfect with the shops and beach a pleasant stroll down the hill and just far enough away from the traffic and noise of main street. We loved the views and our daily visit at dusk from the kangaroo who would pop in to drink from the tap out front. We're all looking forward to coming back later this year.
Great family stayRuth53 - 23rd February 2016
Great house for the large family..10 people fit very comfortably. Improvements made have been fantastic.
Perfect family get awayLyndall - 23rd February 2016
Argo is the perfect house for an easy, relaxed family get away. It is set up for either one or two families, is clean, fresh and very comfortable. We loved the views of the ocean and particularly enjoyed sitting out on the deck in the evening listening to the birds whilst enjoying the view. Its an easy walk down the hill to the beach, shops and restaurants but yet far enough away from the main strip to not be noisy. Loved the kids retreat bedroom upstairs, where theres plenty of room for them to spread out, the other bedrooms are spacious, light and all have views of the ocean.. Really looking forward to going back in winter so we can use the fire.
