About the property

Cypress Hill is set on an acre situated just 5km from Apollo Bay on the west side of Marengo. Cypress Hill recently featured on Channel 9’s Post Cards TV program.

This modern, beautifully designed house has views overlooking Bass Strait and the rolling green hills surrounding Apollo Bay. The entire front of the house features glass stretching from floor to ceiling – fusing the outdoors with the interior and saturating the large open lounge and dining area (90m2) with natural sunlight. An unforgettable feature of this home is the impressive handmade timber dining table which extends almost the length of the large room, in itself creating quite a statement and ideal for entertaining and family feasts.

Outdoor decks wrap the main living areas on the north and east of the house, offering flexibility and protection from the weather for outdoor entertaining. There are two separate living areas – both with ocean views and full entertainment TV/DVD. The main lounge has a wood fire as well as two reverse cycle air conditioning units making it a great retreat all year round.

This spacious house accommodates up to eight guests in three bedrooms. The master bedroom with king size bed overlooks the surrounding bush and the ensuite features heated floors and towel rack and a walk-in wardrobe. The two remaining bedrooms both have queen beds with the third room also accommodating one set of bunks.

The second bathroom has excellent facilities with separate bath and shower plus a separate laundry.

A very relaxing and healthy get-away with plenty of things to do, incuding taking the Great Ocean Walk; or sitting on the deck, looking over the bush surroundings of the house. There is also easy access to the Otway National Park via the Elliot River track located nearby.

Cypress Hill provides the perfect base for a short break with friends or a great family holiday. Please feel free to bring your own DVD’s, CD’s and iPod. Also for the kids there are llama’s & sheep on the property

Breathtaking and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your beautiful property. It was a very special weekend for our family to spend together. The house was incredible and had everything we needed to feel very welcome and comfortable...including our dog.

We loved all of the different spaces within the house, including the pool tabel and table tennis table for the kids (and adults:) The architecture of the home is incredible.

It was a great to unplug and reconnect as a family...we will definately be back!

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

Booked this place over the Queen's Birthday long weekend. This place was amazing!

Clean, spacious, comfortable!

The only issue we had was with the internet. You will pretty much only have decent 4G internet if you're in the living room/kitchen. But if the reason you're here is to run away from all those emails, then this is also a plus!

Amazing property. Highly recommend it

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying at this location if you are looking for an amazing stay. The house is modern, clean and very welcoming. It is a short drive to the nearby town of Apollo Bay and is everything you could ask for. The only thing that could make this a better stay would be to add WIFI to the house. Otherwise, a fantastic stay.

We even witnessed a Koala taking a scroll across the yard to cross the road!

Top notch

  • 5 of 5

An amazing place to call home for a few of days. Every space in this property makes the absolute most of the spectacular views to the ocean and surrounds. The family touches were much appreciated (board games, pool table, video library and huge dining table). Spotlessly clean on arrival and very welcoming with chopped firewood and all the basics plus the all important espresso machine.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review Michael! Cypress Hill is a great place for a family holiday. The board games and pool table are destined to bring out the competitive side and provide a few laughs too. We are glad you found everything ready for you and you made good use of the coffee machine. We hope you can visit us again sometime.
