Gorgeous ocean views; nestled amongst the treetops

Peta D - 29th January 2023

Loved the fabulous big deck overlooking the ocean (and Apollo Bay from the side deck). Listening to the glorious birdsong and watching All the varied species flitting amongst the treetops (or dipping into the birdbath in the backyard) was sublime. King parrots, rosellas, wrens, wattlebirds, black cockatoos flying overhead, sulfur crested cockies watching from afar, fantails and more…. House itself needed a bit of a once over from a cleanliness perspective but beds and bathrooms were very clean.

Great house

Georgia P - 17th May 2021

Enjoyed staying at this house. Most of the house was warm and comfortable however no heating in master room. Also not enough dish washing tablets, toilet paper and bin bags were provided. We were given ONE rubbish bag for our 3 night stay with 9 people.

Good not great

Emma W - 26th April 2021

Nice main indoor living area that accomodated our x6 adults and 2 x children but its the little things that make a stay great. Things that we found lacking that would have been appreciated for a 2 night stay: salt, glad wrap, paper towel, champagne glasses, lliquid hand soap, more than 1 dishwashing tablet. Outdoor area quite overgrown and unusable. We were looking forward to bbqing but its more of just a hotplate- lots of spiderwebs etc so we cooked inside

Kieara Nicholas - 1st February 2021

The house was very welcoming and homily, there was also lots of space for us all and have some nights out on the deck. There was wildlife visits and it is a quick walk down to the beach as well. 100% would come back! Just a short 10 min drive to Apollo Bay where you can go out for the day or even dinner!

Loved Skene’s Creek

Gary B - 24th January 2021

We had a wonderful stay at Gunyha. The setting was very tranquil and the home was roomy. The kids enjoyed keeping a lookout for the koalas and bird life. Sitting on the back deck with views of the ocean was very relaxing! A well appointed house which suited us perfectly. Will definitely return to Skenes Creek!

Owen Graham - 3rd December 2020

Nice size for 2 families, easy walk to the beach. We all enjoyed our stay here.
