Cook's paradise in Fairhaven

The Haven is a fabulous three level beach house in Fairhaven suitable for families or couples.

If you are looking for a beach house to relax and share some time with family or friends you have found it.

This beach house has a state of the art kitchen with views from the lighthouse to Lorne. There are 3 levels with bamboo floor boards in the new extension and hardwood floors on the ground level.

On the first level you will find bedroom one and ensuite plus a separate lounge. The next level there are three bedrooms, one with ensuite plus a central bathroom and separate toilet.

The house works well for four couples or two couples with children or simply you and your partner. Pick up a box of local produce at McGains on your way or stop at the Captains for local pizza. There is a wood fire all set simply light a match and sit back and enjoy the bubbles and the view.

Do as much or as little as you want.

The lounge room features a wood fire, flat screen TV, FREE WIFI, ottomans, modular couch to laze on with many cushions to make sure you are extra comfortable.  There are large sliding doors that open onto an ocean view deck, complete with BBQ, table and chairs.

There is a separate laundry with washing machine and dryer and sink. In addition an outdoor clothes line. A fully fenced yard for dogs. You will also find an iron and ironing board for those formal occasions.

We have hidden a few essentials in the cupboard (microwave, toaster, coffee machine, grinder and cleaning equipment). The kitchen is also state of the art, fully equipped open plan, large dining table with chairs on a bamboo floor. The Haven is bright and   light all year round.

Do let us know if you would enjoy a gourmet food box (email us for details when booking) when you arrive or a Breakfast Box for your first morning?

There is off street parking for three cars.

PLEASE NOTE - The Haven is pet friendly but please scoop your poop.

Spectacular House

"A great little getaway with all the mod cons. The House was well maintained and the owner made sure everything was stocked where required (including much needed firewood). Plenty of good quality coffee pods. Comfy lounges, beds. Apple TV was a gift."

"Perfect house and location for a weekend away with friends. We loved the open fire, huge dining table and balcony. The Champagne and chocolates on arrival were a special treat. Definitely recommend staying here!"

"Laurel was the perfect host. She made it easy for us to arrive and leave with no fuss (we didn't even see her and she left us chocolates and chilled champagne!). The house is AMAZING. The pictures don't do it justice. Very comfortable and great for cooking and cleaning (there's a dishwasher). The sea view is beautiful and so are all the birds, the lighthouse and the rainbows. Perfect stay. Highly recommend :) Thanks Laurel!"

Amazing house!

“The house was amazing! Beautiful view of the ocean, plenty of room, and a great kitchen and dining room. Laurel left us champagne in the fridge with chocolates, and wonderful pasta and sauce! I had told her that my and my friends were running the great ocean road marathon and it was so thoughtful of her to leave those things for us!

Hayes – May 2016

"We had a lovely relaxing few days at Great Ocean Haven. The house was cosy with a beautiful fireplace as well as a split system in the lounge area and electric oil heaters in the bedrooms. The amazing new kitchen had everything you could have wanted, in fact we cooked most meals while we were staying there, making the most of the beautiful range of bowls and platters. The location of the house allowed us to walk everywhere, our dog especially loving the long walks on the beach. Thank you Laurel & Sue for the fresh flowers, bubbles and chocolates! We felt very spoilt. Fairhaven is certainly a beautiful part of the world.

"Thanks Laurel and Sue for a lovely stay - the view is gorgeous, and the property well equipped for us, travelling with our dog and newborn. A great stay, and we look forward to booking again with friends in warmer months."

Michaela & Dave – June 2016

Fantastic large house with wonderful views of the ocean. Lovely artwork through out the house, very comfortable beds, great fireplace, big secure backyard for our dog. Quick walk to the beach. Laurel was always easy to communicate with and left nice touches with chocolates, champagne and fresh flowers. I would recommend this house to anyone and hope to stay again one day."

Jo – April 2015

"A beautiful, huge house on three levels with a huge deck overlooking the ocean. It's appointed with everything you could possibly need. I will definitely be recommending this house to friends and family and I hope to stay here again one day. The photos almost don't do it justice! We felt very welcome here."

Loved the house

“Laurel was fantastic to deal with - accommodating us for an extra night at the last minute. I booked this house for my team who were setting up an event nearby and they loved the house."

"I booked Laurel's place for my team who were setting up an event nearby. Laurel was very helpful along the way, accommodating our last minute request to book this house instead of another one. The house was in perfect condition and my crew were stoked to stay in such a nice place!"

Stephanie – May 2016 ·

"Laurel & Sue’s place in Aireys was great! Beautiful location and easy walk to local shops/cafe and beach. The house was perfectly laid out for a relaxing weekend."

Kurt – Jul 2017

"Laurel was great at communicating details, answering questions and accommodated our requests. The house was fantastic with an awesome kitchen that was fully kitted out with everything. We will definitely stay here again!"

"I stayed at Laurel's place for 4 nights with my parents, siblings and our children for a milestone birthday celebration. Communication with Laurel was great as she responded quickly to any questions I had. On arrival there was really good quality sparkling and chocolates in the fridge. The house, fridge, crockery, glasses, cupboards, and linen were clean. The beds were all super comfortable. The kitchen was so well equipped and there was plenty of crockery and cutlery for our many feasts. The ocean views were lovely and it was great to eat out on the deck. The back yard was secure for kids and dog and there were a couple if fun games supplied. The beach and inlet was a 5 minute stroll away and shops a touch further. I would definitely recommend for two or three smaller families sharing to stay here."
