Those who know Lorne, know anywhere between William and Bay street is prime location. You don't want to be all the way up the hill, but the further up you go the better the views.
We think Moorehouse Street, running parallel to the Loutitt Bay, is about as good as it gets. As far renovated beach houses go, we also think Bowerbird is right up there.
Still somewhat modest from the outside, on the inside Bowerbird is something special. Meticulously transformed from a once beach shack into an adventurous, contemporary coastal escape.
Three bedrooms and two bathrooms to the rear and spacious open plan living at the front taking in beautiful views across the bay and into the deep blue. Bowerbird is all about attention to detail, style and character. See for yourself, the pictures tell a thousand words. What they will not tell you is what you can discover for yourself. Like the cheeky little landing area to wash away the sand, store your boards, and escape the midday sun with a cold drink and a good book. Oh, we've said too much already.
Bowerbird ticks a bunch of boxes. Warm carpeted bedrooms with ample storage, all complete with reverse cycle units for maximum comfort. The kitchen is both styled and stocked to have the whole family gravitating towards it, while the lounge will have you gazing out through the floor to ceiling windows in the hope of spotting the next pod of dolphins or visiting bird.
Wrapping the entire home is decking complete with outdoor setting, gas BBQ and a couple of funky lounges. Other features include undercover off street parking, Meile appliances and all those little things that make you feel right at home.
Bowerbird is a classic example of a once loved beach shack, given some more love to start a new life to be loved all over again.

Stylish, comfortable Lorne classicMegan Fletcher - 5th October 2020
This is a really great little house, tucked up on the hill not far from the pub/Movida. It's modest from the outside - but it's been renovated with thought and style, with a big airy lounge, kitchen and dining opening up onto balcony/deck with a lovely view. The kitchen is extremely well equipped (often a drama in holiday houses), the beds and bedding are good quality, the bathroom is sizeable and well renovated - and it's a bonus to have an ensuite/half-bath off the kids bunk room. Great!
Steep walk but beautiful viewsLouise - 20th January 2020
Just enjoyed a lovely 2 week summer holiday here. Beautiful views and well appointed. Happy to see it had washing machine and dryer and Nespresso machine. Just wish it also had a smart TV and then it would have received a 5 star rating! Aother couple of sets of cutlery would also come in handy!

We enjoyed our stay at Bowerbird. Great view! Good location, although the road up the hill is a steep climb but worth it for the view! Very well presented, spacious, clean & comfortable house, with modern appliances. Ensuite is attached to the bunk room.
Lovely HouseSusanB - 27th January 2019
We had a great time over Christmas - the house is just as it looks in the pictures and the owners have fitted it out beautifully. Great views and an ideal location. Would have been 5 star but no WiFi - otherwise, the perfect rental!
