Bristlebird is a thoroughly modern seaside home with delightful and quirky styling accents blended throughout.

Set in one of Aireys Inlet’s best streets on the sought after beach side of the Great Ocean Road, only metres away from the clifftop walk and a very easy stroll to the fabulous Sunnymead and Sandy Gully beaches.

At the end of a quiet court and positioned on a flat block of around 850m2, this superbly designed four bedroom, two bathroom house, sleeps up to 8, offering the perfect location for families, friends getaways or just you and your best friends, including your furry friends (outside only, more information below). It also has the modern comforts of home with Wi-Fi and Netflix available. 

Fill your days with long coastal walks, lazy beach days, or Great Ocean road tripping before returning to this 2 level stunning retreat with two separate living areas allowing for room to spread. The northerly aspect is amazing and provides for sensational winter sun to flow into the expansive open plan living area upstairs as well as the two separate outdoor deck areas. One of which is partially covered to enjoy the BBQ or your wine and cheese on the Acapulco chairs any time of year.

Enter through the beautiful timber door to the lower level foyer with polished salt and pepper concrete floors downstairs. The features of this magnificent property are many and varied, but include double glazing, great cross flow ventilation, a 6 star gas log fire plus much, much more including the inviting tallowwood floors upstairs. Outside you will also find a large fire pit with wooden bench seating, don't forget the marshmallows!

Most importantly, the location is absolutely superb, allowing privacy, peace and quiet and the perfect spot to reside or relax all only 100km from Melbourne.

We booked last minute and they were accommodating to our needs. This place is immaculate and as stunning in life as it is in the photos. The beach is metres away and the sunrises are spectacular! A home away from home! Highly recommended!!! 7 stars!

We had a fantastic stay at Bristlebird. The house was beautifully presented (exceeded our expectations) and had everything we needed for a relaxing girls weekend away. We will be back, thank you!

Our stay at Bristlebird was lovely. The house was spacious and well set up for a group. We loved the view out onto the trees and bush outside and the close proximity (10 min walking) to the beach was fantastic. The heating was great and it was very cosy during our winter stay. The kitchen was spacious and had most of the things we needed. It was a great property for dogs and they loved the backyard and beach trips. We would love to stay here again. Thanks for having us!!!

Great house in a great location. Very stylish, clean and a great layout for 2 families allowing your own space. The fire pit was a winner and the kids loved feeding the visiting parrots. It's also a fab location if you love the outdoors.... the coastal walk is only a few minutes away and it's a very scenic, great for a walk to the lighthouse or morning run. Great time had by all.

Aireys Inlet is generally a great place to stay. We holiday here regularly. One of the few coastal towns that has a feel of being both by the sea and in the bush. Bristlebird is in a great location - walking distance to Sunnymead Beach and a minute from the clifftop walk. The house is nice and bright with lots of natural light. An enjoyable stay.
