A cool little house located on the banks of the secluded Aire River. Designed for two, this place provides everything you need for your indulgent, peaceful escape. Features include, sauna, outdoor spa, wood fire and kayaks. Aire River Escape is a destination in itself where nature is the star attraction. Sights and sounds of nature are at your doorstep.
With a Great Ocean Road address and located in the heart of the Otways, this place is central to all the attractions in the area.

The space

Aire River Escape is designed for couples looking for an indulgent, private retreat. The cabin is nestled on a bend of the beautiful Aire River and over looks rich farmland and the Otway National Park. The views accompanied by the sounds of wildlife and farm animals will lull you into a state of calm. The cabin boasts a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and coffee machine. There is a wood fire, full size cedar sauna and an outdoor spa. Guests have two kayaks to explore the waterways, go fishing or bird watching.
Return guests to Aire River Escape enjoy the amazing solitude and the lack of mobile phone and television reception. There is an extensive DVD library for movie lovers. Well behaved dogs are welcome at Aire River.
Every effort has been made to minimize the impact on the local environment. There is a no smell, composting toilet is located in an out building. It sounds gross, but I promise you it isn't. Bath robes are provided for guests.

Words can't describe the magical feeling that staying at Lisa's property gave us. We had the most relaxing, secluded time enjoying the view, watching the weather roll in and away, cooking delicious food, reading by the fire, hanging out in the sauna and chatting with local koalas. Honestly, if you want to get off the grid and reconnect with yourself, your loved one and nature, this is the place.

An absolutely amazing secluded getaway! Well maintained, clean, and has everything you'd need. It's the perfect place surrounded by nature, the sound of water running, tranquility and nature. The outdoor spa was a brilliant bonus and was such a great experience to be able to soak in hot water in the middle of nature. Thanks Lisa for sharing such a gorgeous gem of a place. Great location, great host and great place.

An incredible stay, there were gumboots so you could walk around the property without worry and the view was just breathtaking. Loved the spa and sauna and the location is SO close to cape otway and the redwoods - very central to spend an afternoon out exploring and come back and bunker down by the fire.

Absolutely beautiful place. The remotness mixed with beautiful scenery are the perfect combination for disconnecting from reality and reconnecting with one self. The facility's were clean, rustic and modern, it had everything you need that doesn't need to be plugged in! We even loved the compost toilet! haha but the outdoor spa bath with picturesque views and inside work fire were our favourite features. Thanks Lias, we hope to return again soon.

I work hard to make sure my houses are spotless and well equipped. My style of hosting is to leave you alone, unless you need my assistance of course.
Its very important to me that my guests feel like they have got value for money and that I have provided all the requirements for a rewarding holiday, the rest is up to you! I also try to ensure my properties have a low impact on the environment; this is not just token. You wont find wasteful throw away toiletries or harsh cleaners. You will find recycling, composting and little touches that help to minimize the footprint of your holiday. I value clients that also respect this and are conscious of the resources that they use.
I hope you have a great holiday, where ever you decide to stay.
