The space
The booking includes our entire guesthouse which has 15 bedrooms, Seacroft Chapel which is a unique and exclusive self-contained space for either 5 people, or a cleared space, and Seacroft Retreat which is a self-contained luxury apartment nestled between the guesthouse and chapel. (The Chapel and Sea View are included for all bookings made after February 16 2020)

The guesthouse has a lounge with combustion wood fire, large dining hall and a cozy sunroom with games and a table tennis table with spectacular views.

Bedrooms are part of the monastery where the priests used to live. They are simple, clean and comfortable - please see the photos.

Our linen is white hotel linen, our bedding is cozy and warm with extra pillows and blankets if you need.

Seacroft has a very large kitchen with gas cooking on two commercial stoves with 12 gas burners, 1 gas oven, 2 electric ovens, grill and plate warmer. Also a dishwasher and two new large 540 litre fridges with freezers and 2 jugs, 2 toasters, rice machine, blender, mix master, juice machine. Lots of large pots, trays, bowls, wine and champagne glasses, everything for cooking and eating for around 40 guests. Our Italian stone kitchen island bench is the size of a single bed!

There are 2 large bathrooms in the guesthouse area, each with 3 showers and 2 toilets all with separate doors. In total 6 showers and 4 toilets. There is also a full accessible bathroom, and bathrooms in both Seacroft Retreat and the Chapel.

Complimentary tea and coffee for guests.

Other things to note
Linen, bedding and towels are supplied.

Price paid is for a maximum of 34 guests who can all sleep comfortably in our 15 bedrooms which are situated around a central courtyard.

Camping is available at an extra cost of $30 per guest per night - regardless of how many are staying in the main section. Please confirm before you arrive how many campers will be coming, the places for campers are limited. Any extra camping fees need to be paid in advance by the person booking, we do not accept individual guest payments.

Children under 5 are not included in the total number of guests.

In the main large dining and lounge room there is a wood combustion heater as well as a split system air conditioner/heater. If you would like to use the wood heater then you will need to bring your own wood that can be purchased at most supermarkets and service stations in the area. We can supply small kindling.

Please note that we do not accept bookings for 'bucks' or 'stag' nights.

The hire of Seacroft does not include any of the surrounding farm land. If you are planning an event with a larger number of people than our accommodation capacity, extra charges may apply.

To save you money, we do not charge a cleaning fee but expect that you leave the bedroom and outside areas free of rubbish and cigarette butts, and that the main house is left tidy and the kitchen and dishes are completely cleaned and put away. A $300 cleaning fee applies if Seacroft is not left tidy.

The furniture within Seacroft is not movable or removable.

No smoke machines or stiletto heels allowed.

Due to our properties size and therefore particular requirements we have a manager onsite for your convenience who lives in separate self contained accommodation. You will not see them at all unless you need them and do not share any of the guesthouse spaces. They are there to assist you if you should need it, and they have access to the switchboard and fire panels.

Prices are subject to rise at any time and new prices are valid regardless of previous 'quotes' that may have occurred in the past prior to booking.

Please note if you are planning a wedding you will need to refer to our listing for 'Seacroft Chapel and Homestead Wedding Venue' which is our all inclusive wedding listing.

Please note that booking one room the previous night to your booking does not give you access to the house after your 10am checkout for that one room. Our cleaners need from 10am to 3pm to prepare the property for large groups.

Seacroft Chapel, Lotus Belle Tent, Treehouse, Sea View Retreat and our two self contained cottages Ocean View and Bay View are available to rent at additional cost.

The two cottages do not share any facilities with the guesthouse, are completely separate with their own carpark.

The Chapel, Lotus Belle Tent, Treehouse and Sea View Retreat are left empty if you don't want them to ensure your privacy.

Seacroft Chapel cannot be booked to hold parties (weddings excluded). It is strictly accommodation.

Requests to reduce the length of a booking once it is made will not be accepted.

Any 'quotes' made prior to booking will be for amounts without the Airbnb fee.

No loud noise, music or unruly behavior outside after 10pm.

You need to book both cottages if you are planning a party so you are the only guests onsite.

No ball games around the house or bedrooms. We have extensive lawns that can be used.

Bookings for long weekends are three day minimum.

All additions of services or extra days are put through the Airbnb system and attract the normal service fees. Quoted prices do not include these Airbnb fees.

Sugarloaf, Victoria, Australia

We are situated in a place of natural beauty. Looking East we have spectacular views of Cape Patton and the State Forest climbing up over the hills. Looking West we have views all the way along the coast to Apollo Bay and beyond.

There is a secluded beach right across the road with amazing volcanic rock pools to explore, swimming holes in the rocks that warm up during the day and a sandy little beach.

There is also a spectacular 45 minute walk from Seacroft to the Carisbrook Waterfalls.

There is a major koala population 5 minutes up the road, a multitude of different birds, echidnas and kangaroos if you are lucky, fishing off the rocks in front, dolphins who regularly visit and whales in the winter!
