Our on site hosts live in the southern wing of the d quite separate yet near enough to provide help and information. This part of Breamlea is near to Barwon Heads and Torquay, Geelong itself is only 20 minutes away and yet the Compound has no neighbours surrounded by coastal plains and conservation lands. The roof top of the local Surf Club can be seen across the the grasses in the Dunes – Breamlea Village is a 10 minute walk and the beach beyond just a few minutes further Car, Bike, Horse or Uber/taxi This estate has 3 Themed Rooms the Dojo or Yoga hall is across the yard and will not impact on your stay. and is across the central yard. SPECIAL NOTE – How do we describe this listing within the Airbnb Frame Work ?? Ryokan it is, but technically they can only be in Japan – Boutique Hotel seems best but the recent changes to listing criteria is flawed and no matter how many times I insert details it will not save as Boutique Hotel – you be the judge please.
