Bedrooms 1
Property type farmhouse


About the property

Perched high above the quiet township of Apollo Bay, this modest yet surprisingly well presented converted shearing shed has everything to offer when your looking for that place thats just that little bit different. Private, tranquil, peacefull and serene are four words that spring to mind when one describes this lovely property. Sit back and relax to enjoy the great atmosphere and panorama that surround you. There is 120 acres of nature lovers paradise for you with a vast range of flora and fauna.For the golf fans, why not bring the clubs and try our demanding all weather 180 yard one hole course. All this knowing that your a short 5km walk away from all of the attractions Apollo Bay has to offer. Spend a couple of days and explore the world famous Great Ocean Road's local attractions. This experience isnt only available to yourselves though, but also to your four legged friends. This property is pet friendly and a heavenly place for your dog. The "Two Stand" is a neat self contained studio semi detached & suitable for 2 people or a couple seeking solitude within the private surrounds.

was enjoyable but needed a few extra touches to be fabulous

  • 3 of 5

we enjoyed it but needed a few extra touches-the bed was uncomfortable(need a double base) and a nice comfortable couch would have been better than the 2 chairs which werent very comfortable or romantic-paul was a great host

Our Idea of paradise. Homely rustic charm with gorgeous countryside views. Felt like a home from home. Great kitchen and utensils, really clean, lots of cosy touches. We will definitely be back. The dogs absolutely loved it too. Thanks Ross & Co.

Exactly what we wanted it to be

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place for myself and a group of friends as an annual weekend getaway. Each year it is the next person in the groups turn to pick a new holiday house / pay and do all of the organising (more pressure than any one person should ever have to cope with!) After 7 years of this trialling a new place each year we have found 'the one'. The Old Shearing Shed is simply majestic. It is full of character and charm and the view out over the Valley from both inside and outside ( great big windows with a perfectly placed daybed) literally stops you in your tracks,, it is simply mesmerising. You can also set up a tee and smash old golf balls as far into the valley as you can..not necessarily as soul cleansing as staring out into a valley watching the sunset with a glass of red but equally as satisfying! Another highlight was the extra large dinning table and adjoining open plan kitchen area - each night preparing dinner, eating, cleaning and the after dinner drinks all merged into one social gathering / sitting which was exactly what we were after given we look forward to this holiday catch up all year. I really can't recommend this place enough. After 7 years of trialling a new holiday house each year we all agreed we won't risk disappointment next year, we are coming back to the Shearing Shed and can't wait!
