About the property


PELANGI 'rainbow' is located on 72 hectares at IMPIANA 'dream' estate overlooking Apollo Bay, along the Great Ocean Road.

Impiana adjoins pristine rainforest in Victoria's beautiful Otway Ranges. It boasts picturesque landscapes, and magnificent elevated ocean views.

If you are looking to re-charge your batteries, for a relaxing retreat, a holiday for your extended family, a cosy wedding reception and honeymoon, or a romantic getaway, then this is the perfect place.

Pelangi defers to its panoramic location, whilst providing a sanctuary from which you may admire the natural surrounds. Nature lovers, photographers, artists, budding astronomers, and bird watchers will become absorbed in this inspiring secluded environment.

Pelangi comprises a main bedroom with a king bed and an en-suite. The second bedroom has a king bed, and the third bedroom has two king single beds, and two single trundle beds. A well-appointed bathroom with bath is shared by the second and the third bedrooms. Linen and towelling is supplied.

Feel free to explore the farmland, venture across the paddocks to talk to the cows, find the resident koala, or spot wallabies and countless birdlife. Follow the mysterious and meditative labyrinth path in the garden between Pelangi and Sri Menanti.

Buy fresh seafood and local farm produce to prepare in the beautifully equipped kitchen. After dinner, retire by the wood fire or on the verandah as you watch the sun set across Bass Strait, and over the sleepy seaside fishing village of Apollo Bay below. On a clear night don't forget to indulge in some spectacular star gazing.

Visit the local attractions, the walking trails and waterfalls of the Otways, or engage in the many recreational activities this region has to offer. The Otway Fly rainforest canopy observation deck is about 25 kilometres away. Slow down and take your time, as the the drive there is through spectacular rainforest. The swimming and surfing beaches at Skenes Creek and Apollo Bay are a short drive away. Learn to surf at Apollo Bay, go surf fishing, or try spotting the magnificent Southern Right Whales along the Coast (from May to October).

PELANGI sleeps 8, and SRI MENANTI ( sleeps 4. PELANGI is wheelchair accessible.

Awesome property

  • 5 of 5

A secluded and serene property. I like scenic view in one of the room. There are livestock whereby it amused the kids, and big space for the kids to run around. We have encountered different moment or perhaps weather in the property. One day, we saw nice sunset, and 2nd day, the property was engulfed by fog. Be prepared to return to the property before the sky turns dark and the heavy fog around the forrest, whereby it hard to navigate your drive. Just love the serenity environment. Except those cob web around the house corner and the seasonal house flies. Other than this, everything is perfect. Property owner provides nearby guides and recommendation too.

Perfect for a short getaway. We loved the fireplace, the amazing views and the quality of the accomodation. Erica was extremely helpful and responsive. Could do with a more current DVD selection and more board games to keep the young and old entertained.

Wow the views

  • 5 of 5

Amazing views of the ocean and the township of Apollo bay. The home accommodated a person in a wheel chair. Home had a large living area and a good size bathrooms easy to maneuver a wheelchair.

The wildlife that visited us was incredible. Lots of birds.

A cosy home with a log fire, which we needed as we had snow, rain, hail, wind and storms.

A quite place to stay on a working farm.

Owner's Response: Hi Cheryl, we are so pleased you and your family enjoyed Pelangi House and Impiana Estate, and you found the layout user friendly for a person in a wheelchair. We experienced our coldest weather for the year during your stay but we are so glad you enjoyed being cosy indoors at Pelangi. We look forward to your return. Best regards, Erica.
