2020 was pretty wild. And Victorians copped it hard, having to stay close to home for a good part of the year.
Now is the time to get back out into regional Victoria, and an Airbnb is your gateway to experiencing a region properly.
The Great Ocean Road is a must-visit for any Victorian, and any tourist making their way to Victoria throughout the year, especially over the summer period where towns along the Great Ocean Road swell to double or more than their usual size

Little Beach House
Take your stay up a notch at Lorne’s Little Beach House Airbnb.
The house, which you’ll want to call home, is just 100 steps away from the beach, and has some crisp views of the water if you’ve well and truly hit your step count for the day.
We have always loved little beach houses, so we decided to build one. Of course, it is obligatory for a beach house to have a beach…..ours is the opposite.
You will find comfortable accommodation for one or two people in our new, open plan, little house. We like that the architect included a sliding wall that can open the living area to the outside deck on sunny days. We also like that we can batten down the hatches in winter and turn on the log fire. The bedroom has its own little deck too, just because…..
There is plenty of cooking equipment. Yes, wine glasses, coffee, and teas included.Airbnb
All linen is provided.
