More than a destination, Keren's Place is a state of mind. Find out why busy people love to return every year, with their pets, to enjoy the unique, rustic charm of Keren's Place.
Welcome to your beach Cottage home-away-from-home where you can forget about the pressures of life. Ease into stillness in the lush garden, sit on the deck and watch the waves and birdlife or enjoy the warmth of the open fire inside. Escape to a special place in time where you can relax and enjoy the beauty and harmony that nature has to offer in a cosy fully self-contained 2BR Cottage . Enjoy your own relaxing home-away-from-home, just 100m from the beach, on the Great Ocean Road.
The covered deck provides an outdoor setting, bamboo blinds for privacy, and your own BBQ area. The garden has a lawned area, hammock and additional outdoor settings to relax in privacy. Fully fenced and secure for pets.
Keren's Place is 15 mins from Lorne, just around the corner from Wye River (1km, 15 minute walk via Paddy's Path across the hill) and a perfect base for day trips to tourist attractions along the Great Ocean Road.
Plan to stay for at least 2 nights so that you can really relax. We know that you cannot relax completely if you know that you have to pack up again in the morning. For this reason we prefer a minimum stay of 2 nights (3 nights for Long Weekends).
Also available is a cosy Unit-for-Two (see also Keren's Place Unit-for-Two), under the same roof, available separately or together).
