Bay Haven Holiday Cottage

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

This recently completed two bedroom cottage has been designed for sea-side relaxation, comfort and convenience for couples and families. It is a base from which to enjoy a day at the beach, a picnic in the Otway National Park, a coffee or meal looking out to sea or some fishing from the pier. It is within walking distance (350 metres approx) of the patrolled surf beach, shops, and all the leisure facilities Lorne has to offer. Children enjoy the playground in the reserve next to the beach, the skate park and mini-golf. A walk to the swing-bridge and time to run as far as they like along the sandy beach. Exploring the rock pools is a favourites as well. The picture theatre provides films suitable for all ages in the holiday season. It is a short car trip to walking tracks to the waterfalls and picnic grounds in the rainforest, as well as local art exhibitions and wineries.

Bay Haven was completed late 2014, rebuilt on the site of the original bungalow which had always been on the property with the holiday house owned by the same family for 50 years. They wish to offer a hospitable welcome as they manage Bay Haven on site. Families with small children are welcome and a cot and a booster seat are available. Lorne has all the amenities needed for a safe and peaceful holiday with ample shopping, restaurants and hotels, a medical centre and hospital with Emergency department, Police Station, Country Fire Authority, Surf Lifesaving Club, an Anglican/Uniting Church and a Catholic Church.

Beautiful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Bay Haven Holiday Cottage. The cottage was the perfect size for what we needed, it was clean and modern, and the owners were so welcoming and friendly throughout our stay. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Lorne.

Absolute bliss!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bay Haven.

We had prompt and professional correspondence with Denise and Brendan and they were kind enough to greet us on arrival. They had left a jar of delicious local honey and some chocolate (a huge hit with my 3 & 5 year old boys) in the kitchen and Brendan was kind enough to give us a "UNO" pack to play with the kids.

The accommodation was neat and fitted out with all the necessities including a dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, linen, heating/cooling, games, books and even some DVDs.

We were fortunate enough to meet the local parrots, one in particular visited us everyday. We even got to see a wild koala bear in the tree out the front!

Such a great location. Everyday we walked down to the beach and had morning runs to the jetty.

Couldn't fault a thing.

Thanks Denise and Brendan! Lovely meeting you and we hope to be back one day soon

Owner's Response: So glad you had such a great stay! It would be a pleasure to welcome you all again to Bay Haven to enjoy Lorne. The koala visits up and down the street quite randomly, so we don't promise a glimpse to guests. The parrots are more reliable!

Perfect place to spend weekends

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at bay haven along with my wife and daughter. The place is just perfect to spend weekends (or may be whole week). It was so close to everything - beach, shops and restaurant. Inside the property everything was neatly arranged. The lively chat with the owners was an added advantage. I highly recommend this property for anyone with a small family. Would like to come back.

Bright and compact with a sea view!

  • 4 of 5

This small but airy property is well presented. Light & bright inside with access to outside from three patio doors. Tastefully decorated & simply furnished with all mod cons, pristine pots and pans, spotless oven and comfortable beds. It was clean throughout and with plenty of toilet rolls in the bathroom cupboard. The owners gave us a warm welcome and were most helpful. The sea view was a bonus!

Perfectly quaint. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my parents, partner and 1 year old son. The place is brand new, quaint, very clean, and in a great location. The best part was the owners who were so lovely and accomodating. Can't wait to stay here again.
