The space

You have your own external entrance, bedroom, double bed, small bar refrigerator, toaster, hot drink facilities, shower and toilet. You also have your own lounge room with TV.

Free Internet and TV available. We live about a 40 minute drive through the Otway Ranges to the Great Ocean Road and the local challenging 18 hole Colac Golf Course is 300 metres away!

You are within easy driving distance to Lorne, Ballarat, Geelong, Apollo Bay, 12 Apostles and the Otway Ranges. It's a 2 hour drive from Melbourne.

Hosts Pushpa and Ken Ellis have travelled widely and love to hear your tales and swap stories. Parking is available and we are a 5 minute cab ride from the train station that connects you directly to Warrnambool, Geelong and Melbourne.

We have recently replaced the ceiling in 2 rooms, painted the rooms, added new carpet and a new hot water service.

Ken is friendly and hospitable and provides a basic breakfast and good coffee. Colac has all services and facilities. We were able to explore the Great Ocean Road in two loops(40min drive one way) from Colac. We found Ken's ad of a private entrance and photos misleading. We wer…

Response from Ken:
Bonnie arrived after contacting us about 24hrs ahead of time. She must have had an old printout of my listing because the entry had been changed at least 2 weeks earlier than her arrival. She acknowledged as much when I showed her the current online entry on that day, clearly stating that was not the same as what she had. I provided breakfast and fruit for them on both days even though it was clearly not included. This was not acknowledged at any time. Yes, the room they stayed in needed a paint job, but it was clean. They were provided with new sheets, new pillows, new doona, new towels, toiletries and free beer on arrival. In my opinion they had not planned ahead and were most likely stuck for accommodation at that time of year. Ringing the local motels I found that all motels were full the entire weekend. I'm sorry they were not happy with the accommodation, but I assumed that what they wanted was a place to sleep. They were also paying far less than the cheapest motel in town. I am currently sleeping in that particular room and have been for the past 3 weeks. This is not a hotel, motel or a time-share. It is my home and I warmly offer to share it with worldly travelers.

We had great time in Ken's place. The flat was net and organise and had everything we needed. Ken was always availble and was nice and friendly.

Great place to stay for people who are exploring the great ocean road or the otways. Its Just a spit away from Colac town centre as well. Ken is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet.

The accommodation was what I was after with easy access, comfortable bed and good amenities including separate lounge. The rooms were exceptionally clean and breakfast was thoughtfully provided. Ken was very friendly and happily put up with my crack of dawn departure! Hopeful…

Ken is a great person. I forgot my bag in his place and he immediately informed me and planed to send it to Melbourne for me. Such nice person!
