About the property

One of our guests commented "A gem by the beach. Wonderful place to unwind, luxury at your fingertips".

The Treehouse at Skenes Creek is a beautifully crafted, environmentally friendly 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom house located on a fantastically elevated position opposite Skenes Creek beach, on the great ocean road, 5 kms to Apollo Bay.

The views are sublime. Sit on the huge entertaining deck and watch the ocean roll in through the gum trees while you enjoy al fresco dining and a long lazy lunch.

On the upper level the state of the art modern kitchen adjoins the open plan dining and sitting room. There is airconditiong, a wood fire, TV with Free PayTV (Austar) - HD, DVD and ipod dock.

There are floor to ceiling windows and French doors to capture the view and provide a lovely bright and spacious area in which to relax.

The 2 bedrooms and bathrooms are downstairs, there is an en suite to the master bedroom and a queen size bed. The twin room has 2 singles which can also be made up as a king bed and has easy access to the family bathroom. Both bedrooms have wall mounted heaters and ceiling fans.

If you have an extra couple of guests, the sofa in the upstairs living area converts to a double bed.

Every room has ocean views and there is also a spa bath.

The Treehouse comfortably sleeps 4 however if you have a couple of extra guests we have provided a pull out sofa bed in the living area making the house comfortable for 6.

Please note that linen can be included for an additional fee.

NEW! Pay TV - HD now available (free)

This part of the Great Ocean Rd is simply stunning. You can walk on the beach, sample wonderful wines, explore Apollo Bay with it's great shops and cafes, charter a deep sea fishing boat, ride horses on the beach, play a round or 2 of golf, whale watch and of course visit the world famous 12 Apostles which are just down the road.

The Treehouse is just a step away from some of the state's most iconic must-visit destinations for gourmet travellers.

"The Tree house was just like the photos. It was very clean and well equipped. The beds and sofas were very comfortable and the owners had anticipated our every need, even providing things like matches for the fire, and mosquito coils for the deck!

We really enjoyed our stay and found the house well designed and very comfortable.

We would recommend it as a lovely place for a quiet getaway."

"It was fantastic! Really luxurious. [...] In the space of 10 minutes out on deck when having a BBQ we were visited by the koala, 3 rosellas, two cockys and two kookaburras."

"I have stayed in Apollo Bay four times in the past three years and will definitely be staying at The Treehouse again. The house is beautiful, well maintained and has great views"


September 2016

"A corner of paradise. You are walking distance from a great beach with rock pools and shells. Apollo Bay is close enough to be convenient and far enough away to be quiet. The view over Bass Straight is always changing, its so peaceful just watching the sea.

The house is modern, clean, convenient and comfortable, all the comforts of home are already there.

We really enjoyed our weekend escape"

"Brilliant location. So well appointed and a delight in winter - to sit by the fire and watch the ever changing sky and sea. Inspirational views of the Aussie bush and the ocean from both the living and sleeping area; long walks on a wide sandy beach ... and a superb kitchen to prepare a beautiful meal."


May 2016

"The place is exactly like how you see it in the photos displayed on the site - but i think EVEN better - everything is provided for you and the people that organized it were fantastic!

My friends loved it and all of us didn't want to leave! We dream of that house as it was soooo beautiful with breathtaking views and are definitely intending on coming back again! Trust me- you will fall in love with it!"

Lovely location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week and the location and bird life were wonderful. Any queries were quickly managed by friendly staff. Some of the furniture and the kitchen items need a refresh but overall it was good. A split system would be a good addition. The quiet location was perfect for a layed back break.

Beach meets bush

  • 5 of 5

The highlights for us were the fantastic view of the beach, the sound of the waves and the opportunity for our city kids to see an array of Aussie birds - all on the lovely deck of this very pleasant and comfortable house.

Stunning property

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as advertised, literally only minutes walk to the beach, and the home full of thoughtful touches (some basic supplies in pantry, laundry powder, and a welcome bottle of wine). Gas bbq on deck with views to the ocean (through some trees, but picturesque). I would absolutely recommend and hopefully stay again in the future. Thank you!

We enjoyed the best of nature with great ocean views, a short stroll to the beach, koalas and night and the bird life and more. The house is very spacious, tidy and had all the amenities for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Thank you for the comfy beds and pillows!
