Go to sleep listening to the ocean, wake to lush gardens and ocean views and if you are an early bird you can watch the sunrise.
Stroll along the beach, walk through the Great Otway National Park to beautiful waterfalls, and dine at Lorne's famous cafes and restaurants.
Our home is on two levels, we live upstairs and guests have exclusive access to the apartment downstairs.
The apartment is self contained with a queen size bed, bathroom with shower, toilet and basin.
There is a kitchenette with microwave, toaster, sandwich press and tea and coffee making facilities. (please note no hotplates/oven).
There is a TV/DVD player, CD/radio player and a comfy couch and dining table and chairs.
It's a great space to just sit and relax.
You are welcome to explore the back garden and use the BBQ, table and chairs, it is very pleasant spot to sit and feels a little like you are in the bush. On odd occasions you can see kangaroos and echidna and native birds, a few times we have seen Koalas, unfortunately we can't predict when they will appear.
The apartment is very peaceful, has ocean and garden views and is walking distance to the beach and bush.
It is a great spot to use as a base to explore the Great Ocean Road.
Lorne is a very popular beach tourist resort town, located on one of Australia's most scenic coastal routes, the Great Ocean Road, between Aireys Inlet and Wye River.
Cafes and boutiques line the main foreshore, creating a Mediterranean feel to the area.
Lorne's wide foreshore area extends from the shops on down to the patrolled sandy beach areas.
Further south at Point Grey is the jetty where the annual Lorne Pier to Pub open water swim is held, attracting national interest.
Sheltered swimming is available at the mouth of the Erskine River where a long suspension bridge crosses this waterway and the sandy beach below.
Good views of the area can be enjoyed from Teddys Lookout, at the southern end of George Street.
The upper and lower lookouts offer views inland as well as south along the coast and down to the point where the Great Ocean Road crosses the St George River at its mouth.
Views of the town and its main beach can be experienced from several of the picnic spots along the Great Ocean Road between the Surf Life Saving Club and Point Grey.

We are located 2km from the Lorne Visitor's Centre which is the start of the shopping precinct. The walk is not strenuous, you can walk in along the beach or there are a couple of different paths you can take.
Driving or taxi are options.
Parking in town can be difficult when it is super busy, however you can usually park in a side street or you can park on the roadside towards the pier.
I would hope my guests treat our home with respect, as I would if I was a visitor in their home. Unfortunately I cannot allow my guests to bring any pets to my home or to smoke at all inside the home or on the property. Please note parties are not allowed.
As your host, I hope to provide you with a comfortable, relaxing experience away from the big cities. I hope you will enjoy spending time on the Great Ocean Road, the Surf Coast in Victoria, with famous Bells Beach and the Great Otway National Park both in close proximity.
