Welcome to Kembali House! The word Kembali is used in Indonesian meaning return. We are certain after one holiday here, you will.


The word Kembali is used in Indonesian meaning return. We are certain after one holiday here, you will.

With an enviable location, stunning architecture, ocean views, natural character and warm amenities, Kembali House is the perfect coastal destination for your family and friends.

Nestled into the Wye River landscape, a mere 120m stroll down to the beach, the home is as modest as it is spectacular. Terraced gardens front the timber clad structure which on closer inspection is anchored by the south facing height & width rammed earth wall. Providing amazing insulation year-round, this wall also forms an internal feature across several bedrooms downstairs and the main living upstairs. Add to this a combination of raw timbers, strategic outlooks and contemporary furnishings and you have a seriously impressive holiday home.

Downstairs includes three warm carpeted bedrooms, main bathroom, laundry and second living area. One of many highlights on this level is the bunk room at the rear. Spacious and custom built for the kids, this room extends through sliding glass doors outside to a covered deck area with outdoor shower and surfboard racks.

Moving upstairs, ascending the timber stairwell is an experience in itself as the main living is revealed through a sky lit internal glass wall and exposed Silver Top Ash timbers.

Impressed yet? Of course, you are.

Behold a kitchen fit for a chef, 12 seater dining in the treetops, ocean view lounging about all under soaring 14ft ceilings. Throw in multiple deck areas to chase the sun and the fully en suited master bedroom and you get the picture up here.

Other standout features include Nectre wood heater, louvred roof over rear deck (blades follow the sun - shut-tight during rain to provide dry area on back deck and below deck for kids play area), Smeg appliances, wine fridge & multiple large screen TVs. Oh, lets not forget Kenny the resident koala who lives in the three gums out front. Kenny says hello most nights around 6-7pm.

Kembali House is contemporary, earthy and fun. It is a welcomed addition to the Wye River landscape. Come once and we are sure you will come again.

Brand new house in a fantastic location on the hill with a tempting view down to the beach, General Store and Pub. Excellent layout for our family holiday with bedrooms and living area downstairs for the kids and master and huge open plan kitchen/living area upstairs with extended deck overlooking the beach. Kids loved the interaction with the kookaburras and koalas from the deck as well as the nature path down to the beach for a swim and lunch. We loved it and will be back for sure!

Kembali was the perfect escape for our young family. Nestled amongst the beautiful trees with amazing views over the point. The house has everything you could ask for. A fully equipped kitchen, undercover BBQ and deck for the afternoon sun. Separate living areas upstairs and downstairs was good for the kids. Easy access to the beach and caf. Wye is great if you want to recharge and get away from the hustle and bustle. Can't wait to get back down there!

Amazingly peaceful spot amongst the trees, but still only a few minutes walk down to Victorias best surf/family beach and fantastic beachside cafe + the iconic pub. Cafe still makes their own fresh bread/sweet goods each day - plus amazing coffee!

But best thing was the view from the deck: phenomenal!

Overall ok

Jordan N - 14th January 2024

This is a beautiful property that is well appointed and is located in a great location, walking distance from the beach. However, the kitchen and shower taps use tank water with light brown discoloration , apparently secondary to gum tree nut contaminant. We had to buy drinking and cooking water and felt mildly uncomfortable during showers.

Hi Jordan, Thank you for sharing your thoughts on your stay. We value your feedback. Unfortunately, there isn't much we could do as this has been a known concern in the region. Rest assured that the water is safe to drink. We apologise for the inconvenience. We hope to welcome you back at another time.

Beautiful property

Beautiful house that suited our groups needs perfectly. Very well appointed and fantastic position. Looking forward to coming again next year.

Thank you for your excellent rating, Clare. It motivates us to do more. We look forward to serving you again.

Great stay

Benny O - 3rd July 2023

Kembali house was such a beautiful holiday house. We're a group of 8 and found the house was so charming. We really enjoyed staying 2 nights there. Be mindful of the use of water because the house is fully reliant of the rainwater. Make sure you bring your own spring water if you don't want to drink rainwater from the tap. The highlight for us was the view from the living room (and the fireplace). We had a great quality time there :).

Hi Benny, thank you for giving us a good star rating. We are thrilled to know how you enjoyed your stay. We can't wait to have you back!

Great stay

Kembali House

Anita B - 15th July 2022

The house has a beautiful communal kitchen and dining space upstairs with a great view of the coastline. The house is modern, clean and has large open space. The beds are comfortable and clean and the kids loved the kids room that was equipped with lots of games. They loved the outside swinging equipment but the trampoline legs looked a little dodgy. Only downfall is the rain water supplying the house has no pressure in shower and tap water is brown. Despite that, we enjoyed the fire place.

Thank you for your lovely review - We’ve just discovered a small blockage in the tank water system which resulted in decreased supply/flow to the pump and has inadvertently caused some discoloration. The blockage has now been removed and the water has returned to normal pressure and is clear. Our apologies for this occurrence - please call us straight away if this is experienced and we’ll have our maintenance team attend to it asap

Fabulous holiday home and location

Renee S - 16th March 2022

Kembali house was perfectly located within easy walking distance from the beach, pub and store. The house was roomy and well stocked with everything we needed for a 3 family stay. The balcony overlooking the beach was fab and the kitchen is very roomy and modern, just like the rest of the house. The kids enjoyed the fire pit at night, darts, surfboards and body boards. We would definitely stay again!

So relaxing

Tony - 24th February 2020

Clean and modern with beautiful furnishings. Excellent kitchen and the bonus of having a Weber. Close to the beach yet still has views across the beach and the village. Great value. Keen to return. So relaxing

Exceptional location with gorgeous views

Gill - 11th February 2020

Perfect group house, lovely deck & communal spaces, walk to pub, cafe and beach

Ripping View

KayDee - 17th January 2020

Kembali is a great location - stunning views of the surf and beach, relaxing stroll down Paddy's path to beach, store, pub. Great support from the staff at GORH too!

Perfect Getaway

Nikki - 29th July 2019

We came here with a group of friends for a weekend getaway and we were not disappointed! The house was beautiful- big but cosy at the same time. The outlook was sensational and the location- perfect! Only a short walk down to eat breakfast or head to the pub. Had an amazing weekend! Will definitely be returning!!!

Unwind and relax

BradJess - 9th April 2019

Kembali provided our family with the perfect place to unwind and relax. The house has everything you need, more than you would expect in a holiday house. Brilliant ocean views and only a short walk to the beach and caf.

Beautiful home, amazing view and easy location

Lisa - 22nd February 2019

We've been coming to Wye River for several years now because the location on the GOR is amazing and vibe is so relaxed and easy going. We always rent a house, usually a different one each year. This house was quite a find. Perfect for our multi-generational holiday which consisted of our family with 2 small children and grandparents. The location is great, our 2 year old enjoyed walking from the house to the beach every day. The views are amazing from the front deck and each room has plenty of storage space, blockout blinds and plush new carpet. Two living spaces make it perfect for couples or extended families travelling together. Basically we liked it so much we re-booked for this year.

Great Place

Albert - 4th February 2019

We enjoyed our time very much. Very nice place. The location is fantastic. Everyone could come and go to the beach as they wished. Love to come back one day.

Amazing house in my favourite place.

Tony - 27th November 2018

We have been coming to Wye for 15 years, and have stayed in lots of holiday houses over that time, and this is one of the best for sure. We stayed with two families, including 5 kids, and they all fit into the bunk room together and the parents rooms were super comfortable, too. Loved the big deck for sunset and in the morning for breakfast outside. Had a nice fire at night with a few wines for the adults. Can't fault the kitchen or the setup of the place, really was just amazing. Feels like coming into your own holiday home, with everything you need. We will be back for sure.

Amazing location!

Aaron C - 12th November 2018

We were looking for a relaxing break down the Great Ocean Road and found this superb house at Wye River. Amazing new house with wonderful facilities and a short stroll along the beach to the famous pub and general store. Just superb and will be our choice for any visit down the GOR in future.

Lovely new home in Wye River

Juliet - 7th November 2018

We really enjoyed our stay at Kembali House, it is a lovely comfortable new home that accommodated our extended family with ease. Great location, lovely view and a short walk to the beach, cafe and pub. The rammed earth wall is a stunner!

Classy, Brand New with Rather Nice View

Christopher - 15th October 2018

We spent a very enjoyable weekend catching up with friends perched on the large sun dreched front deck taking in views of the surf. Classy full kitchen with options to eat inside or out, but we ended up mainly eating at the glorious Wye Hotel which was just a 10 minute walk away via cute track. The freshly cooked pastries & hipster coffee at the Wye cafe also went down rather well in the morning. Will definitely be coming come back here with kids/cousins to make use of huge downstairs kids bunkroom + seperate kids TV/play area. 3 minute shortcut walk to beach is also super family friendly ! In short a premium addition to Victoria's best beach town!

Fabulous getaway!

Fiona - 9th April 2018

A wonderful and premium holiday rental in a fantastic location. Thoughtfully set out to accomodate families and holiday makers with great use of space and an indoor-outdoor leaning which takes in the wonderful views. Close stroll to the famous general store and cafe for those post swim coffees.
