The space
Our house used to be an old school house in a small country town called Carpendeit. It was built around 1915 and was moved to Port Campbell about 15 years ago.
It is only a 10 minute drive from the 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and Gibson Steps.
It is a charming home full of character.

There are two bedrooms upstairs: a main with a queen size bed and a smaller bedroom with two full size single beds.

Please note that bed linen and towels are provided.
All of the bed sheets, including the doona covers, towels, face washers and tea towels, are freshly washed for our guests when we get the house ready.
Please ensure to let us know the correct number of guests so that we can provide enough towels.

There is a sofa-bed in the living room downstairs which pulls out to a double bed. We also have two thin single mattresses that can be used for an additional child. (Please ensure to let us know if these are required so that we can provide you with the appropriate bed linen.)
For any guests traveling with a baby or small child, there is a travel cot available to use at no extra charge.
There are two balconies upstairs. Downstairs there is a large deck that wraps around 3 sides of the house.
There is a BBQ on the deck for you to use if you wish.
We have an outdoor fire place in the backyard and a wood-fire oven in the living room.

We are keen to keep the character of the house. The toilet will remind you of an Australian outhouse. We also kept the kitchen rustic although it has all modern amenities you will need for your stay: freestanding electric oven and stove with range hood, a new kettle and new toaster. (Please note that pots, pans, plates, bowls, cutlery etc are provided.)
The spacious bathroom has a full size bath and a separate shower.
There is an air-conditioner in the living room for heating in winter and cooling in summer as well as a wood-fire heater for cosy winter nights.
There is a panel heater in the main bedroom and a radiator heater in the second bedroom for cool winter nights. If using these heaters, please ensure these are switched off when leaving the house.

There is a large dining table that seats 8 people if you wish to invite some friends over for dinner.

Guest access
Based on the size of bedrooms, the house is best suited to a family or group of friends of up to 6 people.

Bed sheets, towels, tea, instant coffee and sugar are provided.

If you need to any of the spare bedding (ie sofa bed or spare mattresses) please make sure to let us know so we can instruct our cleaner to have enough sheets available for you to use.

Other things to note
The bedrooms are located upstairs with a further two steps leading into the second bedroom.
Please supervise children on the stairs and when on the balconies.

Location

Port Campbell, Victoria, Australia

The Old School House is a leisurely 900 meters to Port Campbell beach and town centre.
The beach is situated in a bay and is therefore suitable for swimming most time of the year. There is also the river at the end of the beach which is great if you are traveling with small children.

Port Campbell town has a tourist information centre, police and a CFA fire station, a local grocery store, a petrol station and a number of nice cafes. The local pub has ocean views and is located right opposite the beach.

The 12 Apostles are only a 10 minute drive from the house, same with Loch Ard Gorge, the Gibson Steps, London Bridge and the Bay of Martyrs.
Visit the neighbouring towns of Princetown (Princetown river is great for fishing and kayaking, the boardwalk is beautiful and there is also a nice walk along the river/lake to the wild beach, which you might have all to yourself) and Peterborough (big river/lake, safe swimming beach).
Once you have done your exploring of the scenic coastal area, take an inland drive to Timboon and enjoy a delicious lunch with local produce at The Distillery. Visit the local cheese farmers, the strawberry farm, Gorge Chocolates and the local vineyard (subject to opening hours).
About a 45 minute drive east from our house, will take you to the edge of the Otway National Park. There are lots of great walks to do, a number of them suitable also for small children.
Make sure to visit the Cape Otway light house. You might be able to spot a few koalas on the drive there. Once night sets, you can visit the fireflies at Melba Gully. If you are not scared of heights, the Otway Treetop walk is absolutely stunning.
