Other things to note

This is our home, not a hotel: so there will almost certainly be some clothes in the wardrobes, some food in the fridge and some stains on the carpet! If you are the kind of person who will be upset if "there are someone else's breadcrumbs in the toaster", then this listing is not for you!

Nor is this the right place for you if you prefer something generic, modern and hotel-standard clean, over character, location and style.

We had a great stay and loved having the fire. We saw kangaroos in Queens park and a koala at Teddy's. We had everything we needed and the place was sooo comfortable. Loved waking up to the views - spectacular. Would love to come again.

The home was clean and cosy and waking up to the ocean view in the morning was one of the best parts of the trip for my friends and I! The evening drive for groceries and morning drive for coffee was close by and convenient to get to, which made the whole experience even better!

The view is stunning and the wood fire was very cosy. I would stay there again!

I work as a barrister in Melbourne. My wife Madeleine works as a psychotherapist, and is also currently doing a doctorate in psychology. We live in a lovely house in the bayside suburb of St Kilda with our sons Carlos (aged 13) and Jerome (aged 8), who both go to school around the corner. We also have several adult children from our first marriages. We have a beach house in Lorne where we love to get away. We take good care of things, and will take good care of your home!
