About our home

Our home is casual, light, open-plan and north facing with sunny decks. It has uninterrupted views of the Barwon River estuary across the coastal mangroves.

Living spaces and master bedroom are upstairs with many places to sit and enjoy the warmth of the sun, looking out over the coastal vegetation with abundant bird life.

The living room has two sitting areas with TV, DVD recorder/player and a small stereo system. The house has unlimited high speed WiFi.

The kitchen includes dishwasher, microwave and Nespresso machine and the adjacent dining area opens wide on to the main deck.

The master bedroom has WIR, ensuite and floor to ceiling windows opening on to a smaller deck that is a protected suntrap, where we enjoy our morning coffee.

Downstairs are the guest bedrooms and a large deck with gas BBQ and big umbrellas over an outdoor dining table. Vegetable and herb gardens usually provide something for the table!

Inside the double garage are a pair of bikes with helmets , two single river kayaks and boogie boards for house swappers to enjoy.

Where is it?


Come and enjoy our relaxing home in beautiful Barwon Heads, Village by the Sea. Savor a coffee or a local wine on our deck overlooking the Barwon River estuary. Enjoy an alfresco lunch on the deck using local produce from Annie's Provedore. Delight in long walks on beautiful sandy RAAF's beach and discover the rockpools on wilder Thirteen Beach. If you are feeling energetic use our bodyboards in the ocean, take our kayaks to explore the birdlife on the river, ride our bikes to Ocean Grove for coffee at the surf club or enjoy a round of golf. If not, cast a fishing line from the jetty 200 metres from our home.

Further afield explore the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula with its many wineries, perhaps stopping for lunch at Jack Rabbit Winery or the Flying Brick Cider Company. Don't miss the historical town of Queenscliff or pretty Point Lonsdale. Perhaps take the ferry to Sorrento for the day .
Drive the Great Ocean Road stopping at Torquay, the famous Bells Beach and on to the beautiful seaside town of Lorne. Enjoy a bushwalk to a waterfall. If you have time, plan an overnight trip and travel the whole of the Great Ocean Road to see the stunning coastline.
For a bit of city life, catch the train to Melbourne to explore the laneways, visit the National Gallery of Victoria, do some shopping or visit the fabulous Botanical Gardens before having a drink at one of the rooftop bars. Perhaps take in a show in one of the historic theatres.
