Live closer to nature, you wont want to leave.

The space

The property has 9 acres in the beautiful Spring Creek Valley around 5 minutes drive from the famous surfing town of Torquay in Victoria, on the Surf Coast. Our property is tucked away on a quiet dirt road, surrounded by hills. We are 11km from Anglesea and Geelong is our nearest regional city which is about 20km away. The house is three bedrooms, recently renovated, and has a lovely open living area with windows all around and views on every side. Verandahs surround the house and paved areas to sit and enjoy the view. There is a BBQ and outdoor seating and table. We have chickens and a big veggie garden and if you want a stroll you can explore down the paddock to Spring Creek itself. We have two dams on the property. The one closest to the house always has the melodic sounds of Pobblebonk and Banjo Frogs to sing you to sleep at night. Although we are close to Torquay it feels as if you are miles away. We think its pretty fantastic living here both in Summer and in Winter too. Our open fire in the living area is so welcoming, relaxing and it will keep you toasty warm.

Guest access

Guests have sole use of Melody Farm House as this is one of two houses on the property. Guests access Melody Farm by the first driveway to the left as you enter the gate. We encourage you to have a wander and visit the chickens and stroll down to the creek or the back dam, but please ensure kids are supervised and not wandering on their own to ensure their safety. Kids will love the built in trampoline and room for a game of cricket or soccer. Couples are very welcome as well as groups or families. If a couple is staying, we will close off the rooms you are not using to reduce our cleaning and washing when these rooms are not needed. You'll still have access to heaps of space and homely comforts.

Interaction with guests

We are nearby but do not encroach on your space or your privacy. If you need us we are usually just a phone call away, or pop over to say Hello. We can tell you the best beaches to go to, help you find the local places you should visit, word you up on where to eat, buy fish and chips, and the funkiest places for a beer or wine.
If you want a really good coffee and don't know how to work the machine... Warren will be happy to oblige!...His coffee is so GOOOD!

We had a great stay at Michele and Warren's place. It was lovely being greeted on arrival along with a bottle of wine and the smell of freshly baked bread! Location is rural yet a short drive to Torquay, Jan Juc & Anglesea. Comfy beds & pillows. Good shower. Thanks for having us :)

A beautiful retreat located a few minutes drive to all that Torquay has to offer. The dining and beach suggestions were perfect, and the open fireplace was very cosy. Michele and Warren are very generous hosts - fresh eggs, fresh bread and a bottle of wine made our anniversary weekend extra special.

An ideal retreat for our family weekend away. Comunication with Warren was smooth and efficient. We enjoyed the open fire and appreciated the welcoming treats of wine and home-made bread. A tranquil setting yet still only a few minutes from a coffee in Torquay and many good surf spots.

A lovey tranquil spot so close to the beach and Torquay even though you are in a lush green valley. Great hosts - easy to communicate with and lovely to talk to. Living space made the most of the surrounding views and the beds were comfortable and warm. Awesome shower too. We made good use of the fireplace and the children loved the trampoline and talking to the chickens. Will book again

We enjoyed a relaxing short break at this lovely property. The open fire was fantastic and our children loved exploring the grounds. Warren & Michele were great to deal with and made our stay very comfortable.

We are a couple in our 50's, Warren and Michele. Our kids have all grown up and moved away leaving us with heaps of space. We live just out of Torquay on the beautiful Surf Coast! We love living here and we love sharing our lifestyle with friends and visitors. We have always had a passion for travel and new experiences, and have found that by welcoming and meeting other travelers or visitors to our home and area, we also get to relive some of the buzz that comes from being on holiday and exploring a new and beautiful place!
In our daily lives we are involved in lots of community events particularly those that involve music making. This is why we called our place ‘Melody Farm’. Our property is 8 ½ acres and we love keeping chooks for fresh eggs and the entertainment they provide. We have rural views of our beautiful valley, and we are only a short drive to all the best beaches including Bells Beach, Jan Juc and Torquay beaches. We are both pretty relaxed and easy company, happy to fit in with what goes on around us. Our personal travelling style is low key but we love to make our guests feel super comfy and at home. If they are happy, so are we!
