Excellent cosy accomodation in the heart of Wye River.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this 3 bedroom house. Very cosy, convenient to the beach, park and café & hotel in Wye River. House had everything we needed. Great wood heater kept us warm and the kids loved the outdoor fire-pit. House was very clean and homely. Highly recommended.

Perfect few days away!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Paringa was the perfect escape our family needed!! It was within walking distance to everything we needed, yet set back from the main road and down the end of a quiet court. The setting was beautiful and being able to sit back either on the couch or in bed and take in the surrounding with a cup of tea or wine was so lovely. The property was very week set up for our family, my kids loved the bunk beds, toys, cubby house and exploring the environment outside. Being situated in a quiet court was also great as they were able to ride their bikes and scooters around. My husband, mother and I loved the fire place and fire pit, we were spoilt for choice. Everything has been well thought out and executed!! Suzanne was lovely and easy to get in touch with. We would definitely stay here again and would 100% recommend this place to anyone wanting to experience Wye River.

We couldn't be more happy with our stay!

Our wonderful host provided us with detailed instructions about the house and life in Wye River prior to our arrival. The house had more than we could ask for - we didn't need to bring anything other than food. Loved the location and having no phone reception was absolute bliss. Thanks for making our getaway super easy and full of wonderful memories

Very tired and needs a good clean!

  • 2 of 5

Needs a handyman to spend time fixing the property! Once was a well appointed accomodation, however has not been cleaned properly in months and has a very dirty odour. Shame as the location is very good.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you felt that the property was not cleaned to your standard but we pay a professional cleaner every time to clean and regularly do property maintenance. We are in a rural area and it's is a beach house that is not lived in every day so we do find that spiders find their way in within days, but we have never in the 5 years of renting our home had a review that is anything less than great. The guests immediately before you said a very different thing which is strange. As always, we are open to constructive feedback but I certainly don't feel that this review is warranted and is so drastically different from every other review that it does leave us questioning it. If there is specific feedback that would be helpful to us, please send them by email as then we can follow it up and fix things if needed. Thanks Suzanne & Rob

Great place in the heart of Wye river!

  • 5 of 5

Place was exactly as described and a pleasure to stay at. We were after a quiet relaxing time and this was the right place for that. Easy to get to Lorne and Apollo bay from this location. Our 2 year old was entertained with great toys on offer!
