Amazing house.

Ginny M - 8th July 2023

Beautiful house. Gorgeous welcome package of bread, milk, wine and welcoming card. What can I say! The fire, the pool table and table tennis table. Teenage boys had a ball. Charming house with gorgeous beds.

Great deck overlooking the trees and views beyond, comfy beds, Netflix was great and my family loved the pool table. It's a short walk or drive down the hill to the shops and the beach. Great communication and easy to check in & out. Thanks so much.

Sam Allan - 17th March 2021

Great place. Loved our stay. Easy process

Jack Donelly - 27th February 2021

Great stay. Very close to town and great house, will be back!

Hannah O'Brien - 25th February 2021

Really beautiful house in a great location. It’s tucked away in a quiet street not too far from the Main Street. The only negative was that the house wasn’t cleaned properly before our stay.

Jenna Stacey - 12th February 2021

Great location, close to beach and town centre. Perfect place to stay with others.

Josh Denys - 24th November 2020

Had a great stay in Lorne. Property had a lot of character and was much bigger than we expected! To be noted that the property is on the older side and resides at the top of a very big steep hill. Thanks!

Aashlea Oakes - 21st October 2020

It was a great stay at the property. Nice to spend the weekend with the family in this beautiful property.

great location

Alana - 26th June 2019

Property was in a great location just a short walk to everything. Tough walk for the kids on the way back up the hill but so worth it . Lots of games for children & the birds visit the balcony ever morning. Just beautiful!!

Great Place!

Marta - 30th April 2019

We stayed 3 nights and really loved the house and how close to the beach it is. The weather was not great, so we really appreciated the fireplace and how cosy the lounge room is. The kids loved the toys and the games room. We loved the birds coming on the terrace in the morning. It's a great place for family stays, lots of space and activities.

Everything you need

David - 6th November 2018

We have stayed at 2/17 Fern Avenue a number of times and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The house has everything we needed for a break from the city and the fire is a welcome addition in winter. The kids (and adults!) took advantage of the games room downstairs and kept them occupied for hours. The walk to shops and cafes is easy as the house is far enough away from the main street to feel peaceful, but close enough to walk to. Good workout for the legs on the way back up! We would recommend staying here to anyone wanting a relaxing break the house has everything you need


Tricia - 22nd October 2018

Lovely house with plenty of room in a fantastic location. It definitely ticks all the boxes for a great holiday. Walking distance to the beach and surf club and all the nice places in Lorne. Very clean, comfortable and well equipped with a really nice relaxing family vibe. The huge games room and TV room downstairs and fireplaces make it a perfect place for all year round beach holidays. Cant wait to go back there with my extended family. Apologies for taking so long to respond to this Margot.

Great house In a great location.

David - 16th October 2018

Comfortable beds, wake up to birds as surrounded by beautiful trees. Upstairs- cosy by the fire. Fantastic room downstairs for all the family. Outdoor shower perfect for the kids coming in from the beach. Clean and well set out. Walk everywhere.

We had a great time & will be back for sure!

Elizabeth - 10th October 2018

Property was clean and comfortable with ample space for our whole family. Well equipped kitchen with everything we needed for indoor and outdoor entertaining. Amazing location!!

Great house, great location

Sarah - 14th June 2018

The location was perfect to wander into town and the beach. The house was well set up to house our 2 families with plenty of beds and a well appointed kitchen. The games room is amazing for the kids during the day and grown ups in the evening. The house could do with a good clean, but that didn't detract from our stay.
