Quirky, Three storey tree house, hand crafted from local timber and vintage train carriage parts. Character rich, comfortable and FUN.

The town of Forrest offers world class mountain biking. Ride in-ride out from the house. It also has some great food, coffee and a Brewery. Explore the Great Ocean Road and Otways Hinterland. Stunning waterfalls and natural attractions.

De ruimte
Note: The nightly price on the top right is mid week, off peak, with a small group. AirBnB adjusts pricing with these variables.

Otways Loft was specifically bought, renovated and set up for holiday accommodation, the long awaited sister property to Liptrap Loft (National winner of Peoples Choice 2014 + Romance 2013 + state winner of Outdoor Lovers 2012).

It is not 5 star luxury, but we can say with confidence that it is unique. The builder lived in a shed using the train carriage as a workshop whist building the house. It is an eclectic construction built on a framework of tree poles in a triangular pattern. The interior is a mixture of train parts, local timber and salvaged materials. Every shingle over the house and train was hand cut from the forest. It was a labour of love.

Forrest is set in the hinterland behind the Great Ocean Road. It is a gorgeous small town of weatherboard shacks, surrounded by towering Mountain Ash rain-forest with lush ferny under-story. The dawn birdsong is deafening. There is a lot to do around Forrest even if you are not a mountain biker.

Spoil yourself and make it a long weekend. Take the Great Ocean Road home on Monday when there is no one around.

We scoured Victoria to find a property to match Liptrap Loft in unique character & charm. We think we have found it. There is still work to do, to get it to where we want it, but if you are not precious ;0) we think guests will enjoy the house and love Forrest.

Special features include :
- free standing claw foot bath in master bedroom ( with a lovely view over the green yard and landscape)
- newly renovated bathroom
- Wood fired heater with wood supply included
- air con/split system in lounge room
- Fully equipped kitchen. Oven/Stove. Dishwasher
- Kitchen aid mixer. Juicer
- washing machine and dryer
- WiFi
- Italian style stove-top coffee maker and French press (plunger)
- Basic provisions like olive oil, spices, tea, coffee, Vegemite and Glad Wrap
- Lush garden, fenced but not dog proof. There is a purpose built dog run on the veranda
- With great regret we no longer offer the four free bikes. The expectation of having bikes in good working order was a service we could not reliably offer without living nearby and maintaining them between guests. Bring your own mountain bikes or you can hire bikes at Forrest Hire Bikes, two minutes walk away.
- Piano
- Pets and children welcome.

BEDDING
3 bedroom (with a 4th loft/space but no door)
- upstairs master bedroom with claw foot bath . King bed, that can split into 2 singles

Forrest, Victoria, Australië

Forrest was a logging town until a decade ago. Since then it has been reinvigorated as the center for mountain biking in the state. World class mountain bike trails surround the town like ski runs at a snow resort.
The town is surrounded by gorgeous lush rain-forest, with massive gum trees, teeming with wildlife like kangaroos, koalas, wombats, wallaby's and echidnas. Scores of birds pass through the garden all day. Forrest is full of gorgeous birds.

“Not all those who wander are lost.” – J. R. R Tolkien Remember that famous line from Alice in Wonderland as she heads down the rabbit hole into a strange new world of untold imagination. “Curiouser and curiouser!” Well that’s the way we hope you feel about our 10 unique wonderlands. Duffelbird’s flock of getaways are for those with a heart for adventure – places where you can unwind or unravel, let your existential selves hang free to ponder life and love, under the stars, away from the noise – immersed in nature. Our hidden gems are rich in character and layered in mystery, no more than 2.5 hours out of Melbourne – a converted steam train in the Otways, a mid-century charmer on the fringe of an orchid forest, a glass fronted masterpiece overlooking the wild waters of Westernport – each of them tucked away in some of the most unspoilt corners of Victoria, waiting for you to explore with wide eyes and wonder. Bring your well-mannered dogs. Let them roam free, (just not on the furniture) while you settle in to our sometimes quirky, often eclectic, always whimsical, hideaways. *All 10 properties allow pets, only 7/10 allow pets inside. We’ve felt privileged to have had some 'out there experiences' like the ritual Burning Man in the Nevada desert, deep in the jungles of Costa Rica and atop the volcanic peaks of many Pacific islands. And we want to give all the quirky travellers out there a chance to awaken that ‘wanderlust’ energy. Because we all need time out so we don’t go bonkers in the real world. Go on, escape the chaos, experience the enrichment of nature, the magic of complete abandonment, the inspiration of new surrounds. Let Dufflebird be your tour guide to a wildly curious life. Rabbit hole to Wonderland, right this way. Fleur and Mike
