HARRY is a just newly renovated house that is a traditional beach house with a modern and updated interior. It was a "Paddy Harrington" house originally and still has its quirky style but now has all modern conveniences and clean stylish furniture. Enjoy a lovely getaway in comfort
You cant beat waking up to the view and you can hear the sea from the house which is a soothing backdrop to your getaway.
The best feature are the views from the main rooms and bedroom and deck looking over the Separation Creek beach, part of the Wye River township. There are lots of parrots and galahs and kookaburras who come to visit and the whole area has a relaxed and quiet ambience. Behind the house is a leafy bush outlook . You can lie in bed in the main bedroom and see the waves.
There are great views from the elevated front deck but at the same time there is easy flat access from the other side with no flights of steps to climb
You can walk to the beach from the house ( about 300 metres) and also walk along Paddy's path to the Wye river store for scrumptious bread and home baked croissants
The Wye River and Separation creek township has the amenities of a great store and café and also the pub for meals on the deck there in summer or around the fire in winter. It is surrounded by forest rich in birds.
The Great Ocean Road is a perfect place to explore - see Koalas at Kennett River and glow worms at Grey river reserve. The 12 Apostles are 90 minutes away and Lorne and Apollo bay are 15-20 minutes away for a taste of the Big smoke
Unlike many houses in Wye River and Separation Creek there is plenty of flat parking on the level ground behind the house and it is level into the house apart from the lintel at the door - it is wheelchair accessible with help getting over the lintel. This great when carrying in your things
The whole house has been renovated with polished floors in main rooms and now has three bedrooms - one main with king bed, one room with 3 single bunks and a double bed bunk, and a third bedroom with a double bed - this room has a lovely bush view. The house can sleep 9 if all beds are in use. There are built in wardrobes in every room.
There are heaters in every room and also an air conditioner in the living room which can cool two of the bedrooms as well.
There is an open fireplace too.
The living room has a sound system that takes cds plus Ipod docking station for your music. Foxtel has been installed too
There is a new kitchen with dishwasher, electric oven, microwave and induction cooktop, and a separate euro laundry with a spare fridge.
The windows are mostly double glazed for comfort too.
The bathroom has a large tiled shower, new vanity and a WC
The whole house is for use apart from a couple of locked owners cupboards and sheds
There are two driveways and the entry for most cars is the second driveway which is labelled with a no 25
Interaction with guests
There is a cleaner in the town - number in book on bench, who can help plus I am always available by phone for questions
Other things to note
There a re instructions in the house on rubbish bin times and also fire emergency information . There is info on all the things to do nearby as well
There is tank water as per the whole area and water needs to be used sparingly
No smoking in house and if smoking outside please dispose of butts carefully because of fire hazards

Hi am a keen traveller myself and I know how important it is to have a cosy base. I have stayed in lots of different apartments in Europe and think it is a great way to live like a local!! I work in the health sector and like eating out, music and aussie rules football. I love lots of types of food - Thai, French, Italian, modern fusion, Chinese, Indian, Japanese - and eat out a lot in Melbourne. I like to cook too and like Vic Market and Prahran market for lots of fresh ingredients. Live music in Melbourne is great, ranging from little known local bands to bigger acts passing through on tour. One of my favourites is rockabilly and rock generally. I have been to France quite a bit in the last few years as I had a family member there - I am struggling with learning French but can now get by.
I am looking forward to hosting people in my apartment and telling them about Melbourne.
My motto is " dignity always dignity" - it might be ironic!
