This comfortable three-bedroom beach house has stunning views of the sea and the Kennett River Beach that can be enjoyed from the open plan kitchen/living and dining area.
A large deck that extends across the front of the house is perfect for catching the all day sun or for enjoying a family BBQ on the Webber. Large gum trees at the front and back of the property are home to the resident koalas, parrots and kookaburras. An expansive grassy area at the front of the property is perfect for the kids summer games. Wake early to watch the sun rise over the sea from the two front bedrooms. At night star gaze or watch the car lights as they snake along the Great Ocean Road from the comfortable lounge area. In whale watching season you may be lucky enough to see a pod cruise by close to the Kennett River outlet.
It is only a five-minute walk to the beach, which is perfect for surfing or swimming between the flags in summer. On the way to the beach you will pass by the Kennett River Store so you can pick up the morning papers or sample the pizza at night.
Kennett Bach is a little gem where the ocean meets the forest.

Breathtaking viewsMichel Viner - 27th August 2023
Highly recommended as a holiday .. the longer the better. So relaxing with breathtaking views of the ocean .. local bush land and wildlife.
Stunning views and locationLilly Zoch - 2nd January 2023
My friends and I just loved the views and and hanging out on balcony. The stunning beach is so close. It’s the most beautiful location.
Nice, cosy place with a viewDavid Fruscalzo - 18th November 2022
We enjoyed our stay very much. Clean house. Comfortable house. And many things provided for the house so that we didn’t have to leave to grab anything. Lovely view of the water from inside but also on the large deck. Plenty of friendly birds around that like to say hi. Also saw kangaroos and koalas just outside the house. Would recommend this place. The only real improvement I could recommend would be the addition of wifi and maybe a coffee table for the lounge. But a lovely place none the less.
Can't wait to returnLucy Chamberlain - 5th July 2022
This was the second time we have stayed here and we enjoyed ourselves every bit as much the second time. A down-to-earth but very comfortable and well-located house where you can truly get away from it all. The view is amazing, the beds comfortable, the wood-fired stove very cozy and efficient, and the kitchen has everything we needed and more. We especially enjoyed the birdlife and other wildlife, including kangaroos and koalas. Our queries and requests were dealt with promptly and generously.
Beautiful view and comfortable stylish placeTim Meehan - 8th May 2022
This is a lovely Bach to stay in with a well stocked kitchen, huge balcony and beautiful ocean view. Not sure why the last reviewer was so critical, but I wouldn’t agree at all with them. The decor and furnishings are stylish and modern, the place was really clean and the fireplace was so cosy. The Bach is a cute 70s retro mixed with updated kitchen and furniture. Lots of cockatoos, king parrots and kangaroos to watch. Note there is no ac or heaters, just the fireplace.Would love to stay again!
would not stay at this house againStephen Olifent - 1st May 2022
1. Floors very dusty especially the lounge area 2. House is outdated and really needs a new lease of life for the price – bathroom, toilet and kitchen 3. Entrance via laundry…!!! 4. House tap water out of the tanks is brown. I have tank water at home and is 100% clear. Yes found the bottled water in the pantry 2nd day. 5. Balcony boards need clean and recoat 6. Blinds in bedroom do not block out the morning light enough 7. Only 1 fire starter we were there 2 nights. Not a problem for me but f
Birds eye viewMike Hall - 6th October 2020
Amazing location for getting in touch with nature. Surrounded by birds in the blue gums, grunting koala's nearby, kangaroo's on the lawn; and then there is the ocean. The ever changing seascape drawing your eyes to the horizon, slowing you down, bringing you into the moment. We watched whales cruising around, saw dolphins herding fish, and gannets making the most of the opportunity. Good for the soul to see a thriving environment. Caught some fun waves also. No better place to spend my 50th!
We'll be back!Diane - 30th January 2020
This is a great property from which to enjoy the wildlife - koalas, kangaroos, parrots, echidna... spacious, clean, great verandah to watch the sunrise and feed the parrots. Very comfortable and lots of generous touches. Well be back
Loved our stayDJT145 - 28th January 2020
Wow, this is such a wonderful location- beach close by, wildlife at our doorstep, the mountains and Otways a short drive. The house is surprisingly spacious, well appointed and in a quiet location. The views and sounds of crashing waves lend an instant calm. We were amazed at how many koalas we spotted - our record in one day was 20! We will be back!
Reconnect with all that mattersDavid - 16th January 2020
With a cosy wood fire, phenomenal ocean views and wildlife galore, Kennett Bach is the ultimate place to catalyse switching off and reconnecting with yourself, one another and nature. Beautifully appointed; all our needs are met, with books and games, coffee & BBQ, comfortable beds and a well organised kitchen... all within a short distance to the most spectacular beach in the Otways!

Great house, great viewsVishal - 9th January 2019
We really enjoyed our stay over the holiday period. The ocean views were the highlight and the house design maximises this. Lots of wildlife around with koalas, many birds and even kangaroos in the evenings. The deck is great and the house has everything you need, including a very well equipped kitchen for a holiday house. Hope to return again soon!
