About the property

Gracie's Beach House is located on the world-famous Great Ocean Road at Skenes Creek ...

Located just 6 kms from Apollo Bay and 2.5 hours from Melbourne, Skenes Creek is the perfect holiday destination.

A comfortable 4-bedroom home with spectacular ocean views, sleeps up to 10 guests.

Enjoy the stunning views from the balcony which runs round two sides of the house. Fully-equipped kitchen and living area (including TV and DVD). One shower and toilet in the house and an extra shower and toilet downstairs. Washing machine also available for use downstairs. Just 150m from the water, a short walk to the sandy beaches of Skenes Creek and a 10 minute drive to Apollo Bay or into the Otway Ranges.

Enjoy the peace of Skenes Creek with easy access to all that Apollo Bay has to offer.

Please note, you need to supply your own linen and towels.


This house is used by the family as well as being available for rental. We attempt to retain the concept of using a friends house. Fully equipped kitchen where you will probably find most of the things you need such a salt, pepper, sugar, detergent etc. If you finish one of these, please buy a new one and leave it for those who follow you. We hope you will find it comfortable, easy living suitable to a relaxing beach holiday.

Two of the four bedrooms contain double beds. The third bedroom contains two single beds, while the fourth bedroom contains one set of bunks and two single beds.

The main living area is a large open area containing the kitchen and living area. The four bedrooms all adjoin this living area.

The living area looks out over the ocean and out to Apollo Bay. The living area also has a wide verandah on the front and side of the house. Lovely to sit out there late in the afternoon to enjoy the views, the local bird life and life in general.

Cosy and cute.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Gray Seas. It has everything required for a comfortable homey stay. The view of the sea is great. It's not the Hilton, but it'swarm, neat, clean and everything well appointed, good value.

Lack of maintenance

  • 2 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Skenes Beach despite the very poor accommodation! We realised from the description that the home was fairly old, but had not realised how poorly it had been maintained. Beds that should have been thrown out years ago, chairs that looked like they had been vandalised and sliding doors that did not slide.

Wonderful view

  • 3 of 5

Dated but cozy place for a family weekend away. We enjoyed being up on the hill, relaxing on the couch and enjoining the view whilst the kids ran around the large block.
