A unique seaside cottage oozing ambiance & character for your own exclusive and private use. Unforgettable Seaside Cottage, (AKA 'Aireys Overboard Seaside Cottage'), is about 350m to the river mouth beach, on the beach side of 'The Great Ocean Road' and walking distance to everything in town. The perfect place to just relax or as a base to explore the area and more of our amazing, rugged coastline.

Additional Information

Designed especially for a memorable 'couples getaway' with all the mod cons, incl. gas log fire, 3 corner spa, mod kitchen, big LCD TV, dvds, Airco, Free WiFi etc.
A very special place that was even featured in 'Home Beautiful Magazine' & Chanel 9s "Postcards' show.

The cottage is really designed for a couple, and although it can sleep five, we recommend no more than four if adults due to the small size of the second bedroom.
The main bedroom is on the mezzanine floor upstairs and has a queen bed.

The small 'Bunk-room' is downstairs and has a 'trilogy' or 'trio bed', (Double bed with single bunk above).

The bathroom has a three corner spa, lovely heated floor & heated towel rail.

Although it's two story and two bedroom, it's actually a small & cosy cottage and just perfect for a couple, almost like a 'tiny home'.

The tariffs quoted are based on a couple, (twin share), so if it's for two singles extra fees apply as the second bed/room needs to be set up.

Note to those that like to sleep in...Due to the design of the cottage and with the main bedroom being on a mezzanine floor, it is difficult to darken the room fully with blinds so it has quite a bit of light that comes in in the morning.

The cottage is on its own block with its own entry and you have exclusive use of it.
A great alternative for a 'staycation', (as a work-from-home alternative). Special 'extended stay' rates may apply for stays over one week, (available for off peak periods).

Booking requests that overlap Long Weekends or other periods that do not meet the long weekend 'Minimum Night' requirement may be declined

Please note that the 'Riparide Service Fee' is the commission charged by Riparide and not the fee to service the cottage. Although the costs involved in servicing the cottage are factored in to the pricing, we do expect guests to respect the cottage and leave it in a reasonably clean and tidy state.
All kitchen items returned to cupboards/drawers must be PROPERLY cleaned and dried as we want to give our guests good reviews so they can continue to enjoy other great properties available through Riparide :)

Aireys Inlet
Always having loved the rugged coastline along the Great Ocean Road, and wanting to live near the sea, in 1998 I moved to Aireys Inlet where I have fond childhood memories fishing from the bridge my uncles help build, and surfing the area as a teenager. I designed and built the 'Unforgettable Seaside Cottage' (AKA 'Aireys Overboard Seaside Cottage') which was completed in 2004 and has become a favorite for many regular guests who come back year after year. I wanted to create a place that was distinctive and unique and that I would want to come and stay at. A place that would leave fond memories of an amazing seaside escape.

    Apologies - this property is not suitable for small children The excitement about our long weekend adventure in Airey's was next level; perhaps all the time in lockdown we'd endured made this first getaway all the sweeter! ...
