Farm Cottage - Spa Accommodation
Great Otway National Park Victoria Australia
In 2013 the owners of Otway Escapes embarked on the challenge of renovating and repairing Otway Escapes 6o year old original farm house.
The challenge was to modify and modernize a typical Australian timber weatherboard and iron house to create a warm, natural light drenched contemporary holiday house. Taking consideration of the extensive rural views and interesting location the owners renovated the house and replaced all the landscaping. This has created an interesting and eclectic environment in the "Arts and Crafts" style of Architecture.
Privacy and a sense of separation is an important consideration in the property configuration, providing a large "roomed" garden area, planted with indigenous trees and shrubs created a natural separation. These plantings encourage an extensive range of local bird life. The spa and sauna room over look the gardens and are afforded total privacy for the users.
Otway Valley Views is located on the Otway Escapes cattle farm, near the perimeter of the Greater Otway National Park, close to Lorne, Great Ocean Road, Surf Coast and with myriad of attractions to be found in the Otway Ranges. The property is open for guests to enjoy, boasting 2 spring fed fresh water lakes for swimming or canoeing, a winter creek and access to the Japanese tea house. Guests have a private entrance and are positioned in a very quiet and sheltered location.
The nearest shops and restaurants are only a 10 minute drive from the property, the owners however encourage their guests to shop prior to arrival to avoid the trip to the shops. On arrival guests receive some basic provisions to assist. The owners will be delighted make a recommendation regarding restaurants, attractions and impart there local knowledge.
