Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: When people learn we run a bed and breakfast, their first question is usually “Have you managed a hotel before?”, to which our answer is “No, but we’ve stayed in lots of them.” So in case you’re curious about how we got here, here’s (a very brief version of) our story: Stephen and Claudia met in 1996 while working in a Miami restaurant and paying their way through college. Claudia was a bartender and Stephen a waiter, so the pecking order was established from day 1. Stephen and Claudia married in 1999 and started a journey which has taken them all around the USA and the world. In the USA Miami became Houston, which became Portland, which became Seattle. During their 5 years in Seattle, Stephen worked at Microsoft while Claudia was busy embracing the gift of motherhood with their first two children (Liam and Veronica) In 2007, not content with the perfection of the Northwest USA, Stephen and Claudia decided to change contintents, careers and climate After a 6 month stop in Chile (Claudia’s original home) they finally ended up in Australia (Stephen’s original home). For the past 5 years, Stephen has worked in financial services, helping his father Brian sell his business while successfully setting up his own. In 2011, Stephen and Claudia welcomed child number 3 (Dillon) into the world. As you can see our lives have been quite a journey thus far. So when the chance for a new adventure came along, we couldn’t refuse. That’s the short version of the story. We look forward to sharing more with you in person as well as hearing yours.

Why the Owner Chose Great Ocean Road:
The only way to answer this question is to have you visit. It really is a property like no other.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Perfect location, beautiful grounds, amazing amenities, privacy, spaciousness, luxurious yet family friendly
