In 2015 a devastating fire event destroyed many homes in Wye River and Separation Creek.  Holiday Great Ocean Road managed many of these as holiday accommodation and now, 2 years on, are proudly showcasing some of the most luxurious new homes in the region that have been produced out of the rebuild.

Much work has been done to rebuild community capacity with new public infrastructure in Wye River such as the new fire station, playgrounds and other amenities.  The pub now has a new conferencing and function space and the Wye General Store continues to produce a quality cafe and dining experience that you'd struggle to beat anywhere in Melbourne.  New walking trails are currently being created and in nearby Kennett River there is a wildlife walk along the river.

The Otway Coast Hamlets are thriving.  Camping is popular along this stretch of coast. however for those that are looking for luxury and a premium experience, the holiday homes available through Holiday Great Ocean Road provide the solution.

Here we showcase three brand new homes, who's owners have rebuilt following the fire, all available now for you to book.

At Wye Eyrie II is spectacularly located, boasting some of the best views in town, overlooking Wye Beach.  The former home was a popular retreat for return visitors and this one will no doubt become a guest favourite, sleeping up to 10 guests and flaunting some amazing features such as a sunken bath with ocean views and a wood fire to entice guests for winter escapes.

Little sister to Wye River, Separation Creek is walking distance via the infamous Paddy's Path or along the beach at low tide.  The Cube is a masterpiece in architecture and is again, a second rendition of a popular holiday home. Sleeping six, this is a perfect spot to enjoy spectacular views in optimum comfort.
