Property type hotel

About the property

'The Alison' is centrally located within 500 metres from the restaurant hub of Warrnambool and also 500 metres from the beach. It features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a fully equipped kitchen. There is off-street parking at the front of the house and an enormous backyard with separate street access for those traveling with leisure craft or even caravans.

Our focus is to provide comfort and convenience. Air-conditioning as well as central heating are available. Pillow-top mattresses, Australian wool quilts and 1000 count linen is bound to please.

Entertainment is also a priority. Free Wi-fi and Netflix can be enjoyed while lounging in leather. And outside you can try bocce or for the more traditionalists backyard cricket around the great Aussie barbecue.

Your holiday home will welcome you with

• two queen rooms with luxurious bedding

• one double room with a single bunk

• leather lounge with TV and stereo

• two bathrooms with generous showers and a huge bath

• fully fitted kitchen with cutlery, crockery and cookware

• indoor and outdoor dining with barbecue

• remote garage

For entertainment

• free WiFi and Netflix

• large backyard for little and big kids

A short 500 metre stroll will get you to

• the beach (another 200m to patrolled section )

• the award-winning promenade which hugs the shoreline

• Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum

• Lighthouse Theatre and Art Gallery

• Warrnambool's delicious cafe and restaurant strip

• and the first of many pubs and clubs is less than 200 metres


Along the promenade you can swim and surf in safety, dine at restaurants and cafes, play at the wonderful Lake Pertobe adventure park, fish off the breakwater or just plain meander along to the wild Thunder Point Coastal Reserve. You may even catch a glimpse of the Maremma dogs caring for our penguins.

Everything in Warrnambool is in reach within 5 minutes by car. Shopping, swimming, bowling, tennis or paddling the waterways is only a short drive away. So the choice is not what do we do today but rather in what order do we do them.

A day trip west-bound can find you in surprising Tower Hill Nature Reserve where koalas and kangaroos abound. Then lunch at the wharf in Port Fairy, world renown for its famous Folk Festival. And afternoon tea in historic Koroit home of The Koroit Irish Festival.

A day trip east-bound is more adventurous so start early or spread it over two days. The Bay of Islands Coastal Reserve at Peterborough is beautiful. And much more awaits you around Port Campbell. The coastal attractions of London Bridge, Loch Ard Gorge and world famous Twelve Apostles will fill you with wonder. Then on to Wreck Beach if your legs can endure the challenging walk. Time for home or if you push you can further your adventure at The Otways Fly Treetop Walk. But maybe for another day.

A 60 to 90 minute drive will get you to Portland, The Glenelg National Park, The Grampians or the lakes district of Colac.

Prices listed based on 2 adults. Property has 4 beds (1 bunk 70kg max) and can sleep a maximum 7 people.

Cozy and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at The Alison. The house was nice and warm with ducted heating throughout. It was just the right size for us (4 adults, 2 children, 1 infant) and it was great that there was a high chair available for use. Everything was nice and clean and presented well. The owner, Kevin, was contactable if needed and very friendly to deal with. It was good to have wifi and netflix, although there were a couple of issues with it while we were there (provider issue, not Kevin).

It would be great if there were some more bowls and glasses, especially for larger groups like ours, and some more drying space for towels or a clothes airer tucked away in a wardrobe to use instead.

The house was very close to the main street, shops, maritime village and lake pertobe; all within walking distance. Overall we had a great time and will definitely book The Alison next time we're in Warrnambool!

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

The Allison is a brilliant home to stay in. It is beautifully decorated and so clean. The three bedrooms are very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the garden is huge, great for the kids to run around in.

We stayed here in winter and the house was lovely and snug.

We walked to town, the beach and Lake Pertobe from The Allison, it's in a great location.

Netflix and Wifi were well appreciated by the whole family.

Thanks Kevin and Cecilia for a wonderful stay.

Everything was nice, new and clean, but above all was the landlord, it felt that the most important thing for him was that we have a good stay and feel comfortable, he did so much more than expected from the moment we checked in.. till the moment we checked out, thanks you Kevin for everything

Excellent, well-appointed property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this clean, beautifully renovated and well-appointed home. We arrived after a long day of travelling, and really appreciated the warmth and thoughtful inclusions in the house. Our host was wonderfully obliging, and quick to respond to any queries. I would definitely stay again, and will be recommending this property to friends.
