About this listing

Perched atop the Wye Point headland, abutting the Great Otway National Park is ‘The Headland Retreat’ with its uniquely raw coastal outlook, surrounded 270 degrees by the rugged beauty of the southern ocean. With its panoramic bird’s eye view of the vast expanse of sea, waves breaking along the shoreline below and the undulating hills of the Great Otway National Park stretching towards Kennett River, this property truly has one of the best unimpeded views along the Great Ocean Road with not a building in your view line. On a beautiful day, from the cosy comfort of the lounge, listen to the rhythmic unending crashing waves while watching the sunset over the expansive horizon. Alternatively, with a hot drink in front of the fireplace, marvel at the rainbow and enjoy the breath-taking atmosphere of rain clouds rolling in from the west during a storm. This is indeed a house for all weather, all seasons.

The Space
The space is lovingly curated with a distinctly Australian feel that will surely delight guests with an eye for art and design. Featuring a number of original artworks by contemporary indigenous and non -indigenous Australian artists, the space has a homely and contemporary feel with a nod to mid-century modern design. The open plan living, kitchen and dining areas all offer spectacular ocean and coastline views. Curl up on the couch looking out to the views, bask in the warmth of the centrally located wood fireplace with your favourite book or watch Netflix on the wall mounted smart TV.

The house comprises three beautifully appointed bedrooms; the main and second bedroom come with queen sized beds and ocean views. The third bedroom has two single beds looking into the North facing garden. Every bedroom comes with a wall-mounted panel heater, block out blinds and all new beds and furniture. This house can sleep up to six guests in the three bedrooms. There is one bathroom with shower and vanity as well as a separate toilet. The laundry room has a washing machine and external access.

The kitchen has electric cooking with a Miele cooktop and oven, Nespresso coffee machine, microwave (no dishwasher), and access to the North orientated paved sitting area, lit with festoon lights. Outside spaces include an ocean side (South West facing) large balcony with day bed, and North facing sheltered paved courtyard with BBQ.

Beautifully designed and thoughtfully renovated throughout by the owners, be one of the first to stay at The Headland Retreat. Enjoy its unique location and sense of remoteness despite being only a ten minute stroll from the Wye Beach Hotel and the convenience of the Wye River General Store. Please note this is NOT a pet friendly property.
