The space
Welcome to Lakeview House...

A hidden gem on the Great Ocean Road, Lakeview House is a family homestead nestled amongst lush farmland on the cusp of Port Fairy, on the edge of stunning Lake Yambuk.

Designed around comfort, ease, and happy family gatherings, Lakeview House feels like a beautiful and long-forgotten childhood memory.

》To book for couples, see our other listing: https://www.airbnb.com.au/rooms/31930840

In the moody lounge room, bespoke furniture, curios, and beautiful artwork complement the soft cushions, throws and lush blue velvet carpet. Relax on the most comfortable sofa in the world, or curl up and read on the daybed in the large sunroom. Wile away the hours watching the birdlife on the lake, or stroll to the wild ocean beach.

The two main queen bedrooms each have bespoke wooden shutters handmade for a restful sleep-in. An additional two family bedrooms ensure the homestead comfortably accommodates groups or several families.

Families are catered for with high chair, portacot, and change table all up to the latest standard. A washing machine and mudroom help with those trips to the beach. A creaky old toybox, board games, and shelves full of magazines and books ensure everyone is entertained.

In the kitchen, you'll find everything a food lover could wish for; plus vintage enamel cookware, and a poured concrete island perfectly crafted for friends & family to gather around.

Share a meal beside either of the 2 wood fires in winter (both indoor & outdoor dining areas), or set up the old trestle table on the sweeping lawns to enjoy lunch alfresco under the shade of the she-oaks in summertime.

Where you’ll be

Port Fairy Yambuk, Victoria, Australia

Here are my personal recommendations: airbnb.com/rooms/7681461/guidebook

The cows and sheep wander amongst the swans, ibis and multitude of smaller bird life lakeside. Yambuk town is small and friendly, with a pub and shop, and Port fairy has lots of restaurants & cafes, watersports and activities.

Four years ago my family and I were fortunate enough to purchase an enchanting and rare homestead called Lakeview House, ten minutes past Port Fairy. We’ve fallen in wildly in love with Lakeview House and we want to share the joy. That means you'll get great service and local recommendations from your hosts - me and my partner Zanna. Feel free to book or message us first, we're happy to answer any specific questions in advance. By day, I am a furniture maker. I also own and direct Lot19, an evolving artspace in the central highlands of Victoria with studio spaces, outdoor stages, a contemporary art gallery, and a sculpture park. By night, I enjoy playing in my local brass band and volunteering for my favourite charity, OrphFund. I am a well traveled Airbnb guest, and know what a host should do to create a comfortable guest experience. Most recent places visited: Finland, UK, France, Uganda, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Phillipines... Zanna now works for an online organic wool clothing company, but it's her previous life as a luxury housekeeper that she draws on to make sure Lakeview House guests are well taken care of. Together, we do our best to ensure it's about more than just enjoyment - we love to know our guests are being nurtured by their stay at Lakeview House.
