JACKS PLACE - A Place In The Sun

Wye River is a picturesque coastal hamlet surrounded by the Great Otway National Park on the Great Ocean Road.

Jacks Place sits on a ridge with views looking east over the gorgeous Wye Beach to the ocean beyond and west up the valley to the forest. Its position means it is sunny all day and it has been designed to be comfortable all year round. In three minutes walk you will be at the beach, the Wye Pub or the Wye General Store and Caf with its artisan bread and local produce.

The house was built in 2002, and incorporates recycled feature doors and floors into a stylish interior to create a relaxed and warm atmosphere. The home is centred around the open-plan living room with floor-to-ceiling double-glazed windows and sliding doors on both sides to capture the amazing all-day views. At night there are blinds to create a pleasant evening space. A funky well-appointed kitchen looks over a flat backyard so the cook can keep an eye on the kids. There's a cosy wood stove plus a portable heaters for winter warmth. Decks front and back mean you can watch the sun rise over the sea with your morning coffee and the sun going down over the forest as you light up the BBQ. A hundred-year-old manna gum out the front with its sprawling low limbs provides a playground of adventure for the kids. It has occasional visits from koalas, normally spotted in the big gum trees behind. The garden attracts honeyeaters, Rufus bristle birds, flycatchers, kookaburras, bowerbirds, herons, king parrots, and superb blue wrens. In the cooler months when the rainclouds chase the rainbows over the horizon, you can laze in front of a fire or bird watch from your armchair!

There are three bedrooms, to suit two small families or one bigger family. The third bedroom or bunk room is rather compact and beds not really suitable for adults over 6'2. Jacks Place has been designed for accessibility and has a gently sloping entrance ramp, an open bathroom, and handrails for family members who need a bit of help for stability.

Telstra mobile network is preferable for Wye River

So be adventurous, or just come and sit.

Youre always welcome at Jacks Place!
