“Great place to stay. Very unique and reminds you of home. Leigh built it with his bare hands and is an awesome stay. Bathroom is amazing and the little courtyard is great for a morning coffee. A lot of little touches made to make you feel welcomed!”
The unit has vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors, a complete kitchen with dishwasher. In winter the wood fire place keeps the place cosy. In summer the balcony is a favorite place for breakfast, watching numerous native birds. Within a few minutes drive you will reach the center of Geelong, Deakin Uni, and the 3 major hospitals of Geelong. It's an easy drive to beautiful beaches, including the Great Ocean Road. To keep the building sustainable, there is solar hot water & power & rain tanks.
“What a wonderful place for the soul. Once you enter the space you feel a lot of love has been put to styling and designing this beautiful one bedroom space. The view with the sunset is a must, and the thoughtful breakfast in the fridge were the touches that the owner knew how to make you at home. Each space in the house was beautiful designed and if you are just looking for a space to rest, write or be inspired I highly recommended this accommodation. 5 minute walk to the park, and accessibility to the shops - 5 minute drive. Will stay again!”
