Our peaceful property is a quaint self contained unit which is separate from the main house and has bush views with everything you need for some time out.

Please note that we have recently changed our house rules and for safety and suitability reasons we no longer accept bookings with children. We also cannot accommodate pets.

We have recently changed our check out time to 10.00 am.

The space
Welcome to Lakes Entrance and our little piece of paradise. We love meeting new people and having you stay with us while you take a breather from traveling or city life.

Our quirky B and B built of colourbond insulated steel, like our house, and is a peaceful and self contained space very private from the main house and completely self contained. It is decorated to a high spec inside with homely touches and comes with internet facilities, a comfy bed with pillowtop mattress, large verandah/deck for bird and wildlife watching, own bathroom with walk in shower, toilet and washing machine and full kitchen with everything you need including condiments. Our space is heated and cooled with a reverse cycle air conditioner and this gorgeous accommodation (well most people seem to think so) is all on one level with no stairs and is wheel chair and walking stick friendly. Please note though that the bathroom is not very large and some wheelchairs may not fit.

We love people from all nationalities visiting us and it's what enriches our lives. We love to get to know you all, especially those who understand the ethos of Airbnb (that this is our home and we delight in sharing it with you).

We have a great ocean view from the front of the property (your unit has bush views), are very friendly, though know you like your own privacy, and have a lot of local knowledge to ensure your stay with us is as interesting as possible. Just ask and if we can help, we will.

The accommodation is separate and away from the house, ensuring you have peace and quiet (although we can't guarantee the birds won't wake you). Lakes Entrance is a seaside resort that is fairly quiet but comes alive in Summer and Easter.

We have the train and bus that comes to Lakes Entrance and we can pick you up from the bus stop. Please let us know it's no problem.
.
Provisions for a continental breakfast are provided including eggs from our own chickens (if they are laying!), juice, yogurt, granola, toast and jams.

There are lots of attractions in the area, boating, fishing and much more. We are 3-4 hours east from Melbourne and look forward to welcoming you to our home.

Most things are provided such as linen, towels (including beach towels if required), cutlery, crockery, coffee, tea, and lots of little extras or pick your own herbs and vegetables (seasonal) from the garden.

While the unit is really for 1-2 adults - 1 queen bed, there is a double couch that might be suitable for two friends traveling together.

Check out is 10am or flexible especially if we have no one else coming but please ask us beforehand and consider that we do have to clean the room at some stage for our next guests. At this time of year in view of the amount of bookings it would be great if you could check out by 10.00am at latest and check in after 2pm (latest 9.00 pm). This is so I can make it clean and sparkly for the next guest.

Look forward to meeting you soon.

Guest access
Your own self contained apartment (away from our house) with separate attached bathroom, kitchen, deck, bush views, but we are usually home to lend a hand or answer questions.

Other things to note
Just ask...we're really friendly.

Location

Lakes Entrance, Victoria, Australia

Our neighbourhood is coastal and we have lots of that to explore...pack a picnic (there is a picnic basket in room) and go see as much as you can...walk to the Entrance itself to see seals...or check out the koala's on Raymond Island...kangaroos abound (pardon the pun) at Buchan caves...and marvel at the variety of magnificent, colourful birds (you can do this from your private back deck!) there's so much more we could tell you about.

Please note that we are about 4 minutes out of town by car - you can walk down to town (about 20 -30 minutes) but the walk back is uphill!

Hi my name is Carmel and together with my husband Mal would like to offer our self contained studio for travelers of all ages and backgrounds. We think we live in a kind of paradise and would love people to come and visit us. We love having the world come to us and welcome the chance to get to know people from all backgrounds... Our self contained ground floor unit has easy access for people in wheelchairs if required. We are both friendly people and like to talk to people or allow privacy when needed. I love to grow vegetables (well try at least), the chooks keeps me busy and I hope to get involved in the community around Lakes Entrance. I am also an avid footy fan (Australian Rules) and have been following the mighty Sydney Swans for 60 years! I will enjoy finding out about the town's history and getting an understanding of our surroundings and what's available in the particular area. Things I can't live without....the usual a variety of good food, a glass of wine at the end of the day, and of course my hubby Mal. We look forward to welcoming you and hearing all about you and where you come from and what brings you to our part of the world.
