Summer By The Bay
House in Lorne
from $316.25
per night


With just enough elevation to capture the expansive ocean views across Lorne bay without pushing too far from the beach, Summer by the Bay offers comfort and a touch of class for the whole family. From the point of entry, breathtaking views form a perfect foundation for your relaxing holiday. Set over split levels, the lime washed bamboo floors and natural light creates bright, open plan living that ooze holiday charm. The beach themed main living space is flanked by a modern renovated en-suited master bedroom, both offering incredible unobstructed ocean views and direct access to the enclosed deck area. Two further bedrooms and a main bathroom sit at the rear of the property. The main bathroom, also recently renovated, includes a bath style spa for ultimate relaxation. All bedrooms have electric heating for winter and the main living area is air conditioned for summer comfort. Other features include spacious built in wardrobes, full laundry, WeberQ and undercover parking. Pets are welcome in the house and are well catered for. The property is fully fenced and has an outdoor kennel for your four-legged companions who prefer the outdoors.

Summer by the Bay is a short 5 min drive to Lorne cafes, shops and supermarket and a short stroll to an all year round dog-friendly beach via the Stony Creek bridge, without having to cross the Great Ocean Road. Set right next to a national park, you can sit back on the deck, relax and enjoy the rustle of the trees and stunning ocean views with a beverage in hand, all at the same time!

Great views and great vibes


We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at this property - stunning views and house well set up for a relaxed stay.

Ticked all the boxes


We were two stressed out city girls looking for a quiet haven not too far from the amenities of town. This place place ticked all the boxes. Secluded amongst the gum trees with spectacular views of the bay. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. Having been transported into an atmosphere of tranquility, we return to Melbourne regretfully, refreshed and recharged. Would love to return in the not too distant future.

Relaxing getaway


Great place to stay. Amazing views, fairly central, pet friendly and child friendly. Our children loved the birds that came to visit us daily. It was a lovely relaxing winter get away

Highly recommend


Fantastic location, views, decor, facilities. Highly recommend!



Stunning views and good location (albeit extremely steep) but house is in desperate need of work. Mould in main bedroom and ensuite is a big problem and became so bad to live with we had to leave a day early. There's quite a bit of maintenance required to make this property better and simple things like removing cobwebs, spiders and dead bugs in the cobwebs BEFORE guests arrive would make for a nicer stay! We did make the real estate agent aware of the issues stay and they offered to rectify the main problems immediately but treating and removing mould, as well as spraying for spiders is not the sort of treatment you do when guests are already staying in the property, particularly when two guests are asthmatics! Girls at Great Ocean Road Holidays were lovely, and apologetic, but honestly, the property shouldn't be rented out in this condition. Thanks for the offer to clean it once we were staying there but sadly this was not an option given the two asthmatics staying there. I wouldn't stay here again unless a lot of work was done to the place and it wasn't crawling with spiders and bugs. It's a shame it was so bad as it ruined our family holiday. Lorne was beautiful. The house was not in a fit state to live in.

Just lovely


Lovely space to watch the ocean and the rain falling. Great bath tub and kitchen was well equipped to prepare meals. Dog friendly home. Loved the car port and also the comfortable beds. Would be lovely in warmer weather!

Fantastic Views


The view was to die for! Surroundings were amazing. A lovely house to stay at only we had a power black out one night and had no candles and was in complete darkness for an hour.

Awesome getaway


Had such a great time I couldn't recommend it highly enough and what makes it even better is we could have our fur babies there to enjoy it as well.... It's in a great spot with breathtaking views we will definitely be going back

Great view


Property not very clean,looking tired,no heating main bedroom

Lovely views, dusty


Great views, nice interior, but dusty, dirty windows, cobwebs and dead flies. OK. Generally but at $3000 a week???

Lovely pet friendly home


We had a lovely stay at Summer By the Bay. I was a little nervous about taking our two dogs, but the garden is fully fenced. A short stroll to the beach was easy. The house itself has a wonderful view over the ocean. We had lots of visitors in the form of the local birdlife which was lovely. The team at Great Ocean Road Holidays were easy to communicate with, and everything was enjoyable. We will be back!

Relaxing, magical, inviting


My partner and I stayed here as we planned to elope in nearby Erskine Falls. The place is just beautiful, keeping in mind it is an older house, but it is very neat and tidy and well looked after. While also being amazingly located and the fact it was pet friendly was such a plus for us as that meant our dog could join in on our big day. There is an abundance of natural light and great airflow. Would be a wonderful stay for both winter & summer. Make sure you order your linen and towels ahead of time to ensure a comfortable stay. Would 1000% definately stay here again! Great service by the team online and in person. Sunny + Adam

Beautiful Views


This property is a little older but is very comfortable and was very clean and tidy. The views are stunning and the outdoor areas would be great for entertaining in Summer. A short drive to Lorne town centre and a nice stroll to the closest beach. There are plenty of bedrooms so would be great for a family getaway. Remember though to take plenty of linens - there weren't even any towels. Otherwise it was great.

Fantastic Dog Friendly Home!


Loved this very dog friendly home. House was really clean and comfortable and the views from the deck were amazing. Loved being close to Lorne and the walk through Stony Creek Reserve is beautiful! Nice to find a fully secure property for pets. Will be back for sure when the weather warms up. Mark & Vicki
