Nestled between the mountains and the sea - Pink Moon offers all the elements of holiday simplicity. Drive to your front door; marvel at the amazing ocean view; walk to the beach; relax on the expansive deck; stroll amongst the eucalypts and enjoy the abundance of wildlife; and, if you're lucky wonder at the rising pink moon from the comfort of your couch.
This three bedroom house (1st with QS bed, 2nd with bunks, and 3rd with QS bed and fold down single) has all the basic comforts of home, so think of it as your own. Make use of the well appointed kitchen and eat in (plus undercover BBQ), or enjoy the offerings of Kennett Cafe, pub meals at Wye Beach Hotel, fantastic coffee and food at "The General" Store at Wye River, or chase fine dining at either Lorne (20 min.) or Apollo Bay (25 min.).
At Pink Moon there is either plenty to do, or nothing to decide!
We are conscious of minimising Pink Moon's footprint on the planet.
The house is powered by 100% accredited wind power and energy saver globes are used wherever possible. A new state-of-the-art electric hotwater service has been installed, which uses 75% less power than that used by a standard hotwater service. In addition, Pink Moon's water supply comes totally from an on-site rainwater tank. All waste water is treated and dispersed on-site.
There are a variety of great walks ranging from easy to hard - bush or beach (there's a copy of "Walking in the Otways" under the coffee table for those 'virtual walkers').One great outing is the easy one hour stroll along the beach - with a little rock hopping - to Wye River with the reward of a great coffee and croissant at the end of it!
Plenty of fishing options - river, beach or rock fishing, plus a small boat launch spot only 2 minutes away! There is a local tennis court, plus playground for kids - lots of fun.
Kennett River offers one of the most user friendly waves on the coast, both for long or shortboarders, with more challenging swell less than 10 minutes away.
Indoors, we offer Pink Moon compilation CDs, a small range of DVD's to watch in either the main living room or the downstairs bedroom and an assortment of games and puzzles. Of course, you can always lose yourself in the oceanview on one of the comfiest couches around!

Favourite place to say!
I've been staying here on and off for the past 5 or 6 years. The house is always clean and comfortable. The view is stunning. If you can manage a stay during the full moon cycle I can highly recommend it. Karyn is always approachable and very amenable.You do have to share the property with Koalas and Kookas though!
Thanks Richie for the glowing review. We are very glad that you love your stays.
I would imagine this place would be suitable accomodation to rest up for the night after a day at the beach or off venturing through the Otways.
If you want to spend time relaxing around the house, and/or can't get out because of the weather, there are certainly tidier and more comfortable places to stay. Unfortunately this was us - not enough home comforts for our liking. 3 star type accomodation.
My family stayed at Pink Moon over Easter. We ate breakfast on the balcony with 10x Rosellas our first morning and also had a visit from a koala in the gym tree next to the balcony. Loved looking at the Sunrise and Sunset from the house. Cannot fault the view!! Very comfy beds and all the facilities we needed for our long weekend away. We will be back!
We stayed there over a long week end with two young kids and really enjoyed our trip. The view was amazing with beautiful sunsets, kookaburras and parrots on the deck and a koala very closed by in the backyard. The kids loved it! High chair and portacot were a plus for us. Ideally situated between Apollo Bay and Lorne. The only remark I would make is that it would have been nice to have the house ventilated before our arrival and that the bunk beds were not made. Otherwise, it was perfect, we felt home during this nice getaway from the city
Great if love nature
Loved the location because I love animals. Had a koala to wake up to every morning right outside my bedroom door. Kookaburra s and parrots galore. The moon at night was like I have never seen before. The stars were abundant. My only comment why it's not 5 star all the way is the bathroom needs work The beds were very comfortable and kitchen great room was great. Appliances old but work we were cold at night.
Amazing wildlife and sea views
We had a fabulous time here relaxing on the balcony and watching the incredible wildlife on offer. There were 2 koalas in the garden and 4 kookaburras often came to visit - along with parrots and a range of other birds. The property was comfortable for the 6 of us and in a great location - and close by to easily visit the glow worms at night!
