Cypress Hill is set on an acre situated just 5km from Apollo Bay on the west side of Marengo. The entire front of the house features glass stretching from floor to ceiling – fusing the outdoors with the interior and saturating the space with light!
“We picked this house because we loved it’s architecture. It was very different to majority other houses in the area. We were not disappointed. The house is definitely not a beach shack. The beautiful designs did not compromise easy use of space. The house was very bright and spacious, perfect for adults with children, but would work well for adults only. Children loved the garden! And it was very easy for us to watch them through huge windows or from the veranda doing our own things. Kitchen is extremely functional and well equipped. It had everything we needed. Bathrooms are also well designed, and simultaneously beautiful and functional. As far as rest of the furnishing is concerned it was as it is in most B&B places: when the owners were furnishing it they paid attention to details and purchase good quality furniture appropriate for the house itself, which in this case is very modern and bold. Once they started renting it, some of peace’s of furniture were replaced with either some old items that they already had somewhere, or bought new ones trying to economise. As a consequence the house has very mix furnishing. For example there is an amazing dinning table with long benches to sit on, but there are also completely inappropriate in style chairs added to it. They work fine as chairs but spoil the general appearance of the dinning/loving space. So attention to detail is not something that is evident in this property. Still it’s designs and most of the furniture are extremely stylish. It is important to note that the house does not have direct beach access. So you have drive to the beach. But we knew that. Also while there road is quite close to the house it’s not very busy even during the day and at night there is hardly any traffic. I am a very light sleeper so if it didn’t bother me it will not bother anyone! The house is managed by an agency rather than the private owner, so you do not have this personal connection. Still they responded very, very quickly when the TV didn’t work. So if you like Apollo Bay/Marengo but also fond of architecture this a perfect house for you!”
My little place is a cosy comfy unit only a stones throw from the beach and the town centre.Perfect for people who like to park the car and walk.
“Wonderful location. Park the car and walk to the beach or in to town as both are very close. Everything you could need is supplied and was spotlessly clean. Lyn was lovely to deal with the place was perfect. I'll definitely be back. Many thanks xoxoxo”
Rejuvenate mind and body on a terrace with peaceful views of distant coastal hills. Engage in a tryst with nature by exploring private forested land populated by resident alpacas. Cap off a perfect day with a patio BBQ, then cosy up to a wood stove.
“Such a cosy and beautiful place to enjoy just for the two of us. We were also lucky to spot a koala on a tree right outside of our apartment. We were greeted by beautiful birds waiting for us to feed them with the bird seeds placed by Ray. Wished we were able to stay alot longer to enjoy the fresh air and the greenery. Thank you Ray for this beautiful apartment!”
