Ocean Roads and Sandy Toes
We arrived at Jan Juc as happy as Larry. Salty air, the sound of the waves, things couldn't get much better. Except then it did. There sat Beachy Keen, the little beach house we were staying in for two nights. It felt like home as soon as we walked in. The house was filled with character. From wooden floors to light spaces to coastal colour palettes - we were in heaven.
The rainy and moody 'sunset' didn't stop us from indulging in fish and chips on the beach for dinner; perfect fuel for sunrise walk and surf at the beach the next morning. The cold couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces.
We defrosted at Beachy Keen in front of the gas fireplace (which kept the house so cosy and warm) while eating breakfast, before chilling out in the backyard for a little with the dog, and then exploring the Great Ocean Road in the rain, heading down to Lorne. A sunset surf worked up our appetite for local pizza in the warmth of Beachy Keen while the rain poured down outside.
This gorgeous beach house made us feel like we'd been there before. So comfortable and well-equipped with everything you might need, it was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the coast (even in the cold and rainy weather)....
