Located in one of Wye's best spots, Kath's View is high on the hill and looking straight down to Wye River beach and surrounded by native bush all around you.
The views from the deck are stunning enjoy the sun and moon rise over the ocean expanse in front or shorten your focus to the crashing surf and unimpeded views of Wye River beach below.
Kath's View is one of the first houses built in Wye River in the 1950's. Its design is typical of Aussie beach houses from the period with the main bedroom and bathroom located downstairs away from top floor living area with its wrap around verandah and of course, it wouldn't be a true 50's beach house without a outside bungalow that houses the 3rd bedroom.
The top floor consists of a large open area with original 1950's kitchen, two open fires, split system air-conditioning heating, a large dining room table, and lounge room to one end,with beautiful retro 1960s cone fireplace, LCD TV & DVD, one bedroom in the open plan space and stunning ocean and bush views from every window.…
The house is fitted with original 195060s furnishings and appliances. An enamel New World gas stove which cooks a beautiful roast and a 1955 Kelvinator fridge take pride of place in the kitchen. The house is fully equipped with everything you need to cook up a storm. Windows all through the house flood the top floor with natural light and allow you to enjoy the ocean view all day long.
A large deck leads off this top floor and is equipped with a BBQ and everything you need to laze around and enjoy the ocean and bush views. Position on the deck whatever takes your fancy, be it banana lounges, outdoor dining table and chairs or the wire couches and soak up the sun and the view.
LOCATED IN OLD WYE & WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THE BEACH, PUB & STORE
Kath's View is located in a peaceful nook of Wye River and less than a 2 minute walk to the General Store, Pub and beach.
The house enjoys all day sun, protection from the winds and backs onto native bush (no houses in front to block your ocean view) and the actual Wye River.
Wye River is a small hamlet of beach houses hugging the hill on Victoria's magnificent Great Ocean Rd between Lorne and Apollo Bay.
The Great Ocean Road is known as one of the World's top ten drives. Wye River is approx 2 hours 30 minutes drive from Melbourne taking in some of the most scenic stretches of the famous road.
Wye is a small and special place where the rainforest of the Otway National Park meets the ocean of Bass Strait and if you're a surfer, Wye has one of Victoria's best surf beaches.
Perfect house for a group of 6 adults to stay as the bedrooms are all located in different areas of the house providing plenty of privacy.
The house sleeps 6 comfortably but with an open plan bedroom in the main house and the fireplace in front of your bed, Kath's View is a very romantic place for 2. The house is not suitable for children under 5 years.
The property is set on large grounds that are covered with some of Wye River's tallest gumtrees. The wildlife includes a myriad of native neighbours such as parrots, rosellas, currawongs and even a resident male koala if you look hard enough. Wake up to the sounds of the crashing waves and Kookaburras on the deck.
Kath's View is a special place you'll find hard to leave.
