Bristlebird is a thoroughly modern seaside home with delightful and quirky styling accents blended throughout. Set in one of Aireys Inlet’s best streets on the sought after beach side of the Great Ocean Road, only 400m from the clifftop walk and a very easy 650m stroll to the fabulous Sunnymead and Sandy Gully beaches.

At the end of a quiet court and positioned on a flat block of around 850m2, this superbly designed four bedroom, two bathroom house, sleeps up to 8, offering the perfect location for families, friends getaways or just you and your best friends, including your dog as we are pet friendly on application (outside only, more information below). It also has the modern comforts of home with Wi-Fi, Netflix and air conditioning and heating available.

Fill your days with long coastal walks, lazy beach days, or Great Ocean road tripping before returning to this 2 level stunning retreat with two separate living areas allowing for room to spread. The northerly aspect is amazing and provides for the sensational winter sun to flow into the expansive open plan living area upstairs as well as the two separate outdoor deck areas. One of which is partially covered to enjoy the BBQ or your wine and cheese on the Acapulco chairs any time of year.

Enter through the beautiful timber door to the lower level foyer with polished salt and pepper concrete floors downstairs. The features of this magnificent property are many and varied, but include double glazing, great cross flow ventilation, a 6 star gas log fire plus much, much more including the inviting tallowwood floors upstairs. Outside you will also find a large fire pit with wooden bench seating, don't forget the marshmallows!

Most importantly, the location is absolutely superb, allowing privacy, peace and quiet and the perfect spot to reside or relax all only 100km from Melbourne. There is a double carport plus space for another 2 cars in the driveway.

Fabulous, spacious and stylish house close to the beach. We loved staying here - plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 teenagers.

We had a delightful winter stay at this house. The weather was cold, but the house was lovely and warm. It was very well equipped with most things we needed for our stay (including wifi and 3 TVs). Close to cliff top walk, which was beautiful, and in a nice quiet cul-de-sac.

Great property for a family with plenty of room for all. There were seven of us plus the dog. Well situated close to the cliffs at Airey's Inlet and while close to other properties was well screened with lovely trees and bushes.

This is a beautiful property which is as good, or great, as the photos indicate. It is perfectly suited for a small group with many areas for private contemplation away from the group. Every single thing we required was available

A gorgeous home to stay in with everything you could hope for. Enough room for all the family or a group of friends. In a lovely quiet area and only a very short walk to a beautiful walking track overlooking the beach. Had a great stay and would love to come back one day.

Everything was very exceptional and we really enjoyed our stay, as well as the amenities, small touches, stocked pantry, bedding options, etc. The balcony and BBQ was a highlight and everything else was incredibly comfortable :) Our interactions online with our agent were very prompt.

LOVED staying at Bristlebird. It is such a lovely house. 4 bedrooms well spread out over the property so there is privacy for family members. The living/dining/kitchen is so spacious and the air conditioner is very effective even in such a large space. The lovely thing is there are lots of things provided so it really feels like a home away from home. Lots of cushions, throws, books, artwork, scented diffusers all around the place A great kitchen with plenty of really nice bowls/plates/cutlery/glasses, and a well-stocked pantry that you are happy to replenish/add to when you leave - it feels like a bit of a co-op pantry :) You really feel like you are staying in your own beach house. Communication is excellent should you have any queries. Lisa/Janice/Annie were all very prompt in answering any questions we had where to find anything and dealing with bins etc. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place (I've stayed in many AirBnb's in Europe/USA and this is even better!)

Amazing spot for a quiet getaway which is close to Lorne, beach and great ocean road.

Thank you for a smooth stay, but the most an absolutely beautiful house - we wanted to stay longer! Beautiful home perfect for a super chilled beachside holiday. The house is beautifully fitted out with state of the art amenities but in a warm, friendly and relaxed style. Great open plan living, kitchen and beautiful big decks - great for shared meals and relaxing. Light-filled, spacious, sparkling clean. Great hosts to deal with. Not super close for walking to town, but the peaceful surrounds and close access to the beach make up for it! I would definitely stay again - linger next time!

Very pleased with this. Normally book hotels but not that many suitable for us along this stretch of The Great Ocean Road. More of an AirB&B type deal but worked out better than expected. Fabulous property with loads of space and super facilities. Good to wind down and relieve stress rather than use as a touring base as we normally do. Easy drive to all the relevant sites in the area. Lovely clean and soft bedding and towels etc. Slept like a log in the comfortable beds.

We booked last minute and they were accommodating to our needs. This place is immaculate and as stunning in life as it is in the photos. The beach is metres away and the sunrises are spectacular! A home away from home! Highly recommended!!! 7 stars!

We had a fantastic stay at Bristlebird. The house was beautifully presented (exceeded our expectations) and had everything we needed for a relaxing girls weekend away. We will be back, thank you!

Our stay at Bristlebird was lovely. The house was spacious and well set up for a group. We loved the view out onto the trees and bush outside and the close proximity (10 min walking) to the beach was fantastic. The heating was great and it was very cosy during our winter stay. The kitchen was spacious and had most of the things we needed. It was a great property for dogs and they loved the backyard and beach trips. We would love to stay here again. Thanks for having us!!!

Great house in a great location. Very stylish, clean and a great layout for 2 families allowing your own space. The fire pit was a winner and the kids loved feeding the visiting parrots. It's also a fab location if you love the outdoors.... the coastal walk is only a few minutes away and it's a very scenic, great for a walk to the lighthouse or morning run. Great time had by all.

Aireys Inlet is generally a great place to stay. We holiday here regularly. One of the few coastal towns that has a feel of being both by the sea and in the bush. Bristlebird is in a great location - walking distance to Sunnymead Beach and a minute from the clifftop walk. The house is nice and bright with lots of natural light. An enjoyable stay.
