Overpriced and no linen

Stephanie L - 25th September 2023

Nice old place with great location and views. Very very overpriced for what it is. Furthermore, even at neat $1k per night, linen is not included. Their beds are Kings and King Singles which are sizes that not everyone has on hand. At that price, I would never come back. We rented this house years ago and it wasn’t overpriced like this.

Stunning beach views

Nick - 25th February 2019

Great place for our family of 10 - not brand new, but very suitable. Best stocked house we've stayed in, in our 15 years of coming to Lorne. Everyone keen to stay there again.

Great location

MaxAnderson1 - 2nd October 2018

We really enjoyed our stay as it was comfortable and the room down stairs is very good for entertainment. Their were a lot of comfortable seats to sut and look at the stunning views. The only things that were a problem was that the house itself was very dark and the downstairs isnt connected to the rest of the house. But other than that it was a great place to stay and would highly recommend it.

Amazing Views

Paul - 6th August 2018

Great old school beach house, amazing views. Clean, well renovated bathrooms. Perfect for 2 families with a huge games area downstairs. Short walk down the hill to the beach, pub, shops. Highly recommended and good value for money.

Stunning Location

Great place to relax. Very good location. Not very close to the beach but nice views. Kids loved it too. Would like to book the place for another holiday.

Fabulous place

Gabby - 19th September 2017

Fantastic place for group bookings. We booked for Amy Gran Fondo, great location. This house has it all, view, space and all the amenities a large group needs.

Great Weekend

Richard - 21st February 2017

The house was in a great location with great views of the water. I would book there again.

Fantastic Location

JennyS - 13th September 2016

We booked the house as a group of adults for a cycling weekend. View was fantastic from the balcony and could have sat there all weekend! Location was perfect for being in the hub of activity but far enough away you didn't get disturbed by the noise. There was plenty of crockery, cutlery and an huge assortment of platters etc for group catering. My only criticism would be that I wasn't aware you could not get to the downstairs room from inside the house. You had to go out and down the outside to access the bunk room. This house would also suit 2 families as it had two "master" bedrooms and two areas for kids to sleep.

Amazing location and view of the ocean! The balcony offered a relaxing setting to enjoy a drink amongst the trees whilst overlooking the ocean.
