Absolutely exceptional, stylish, superbly located, quiet. Best Airbnb I’ve ever had the pleasure to visit' (review)
Secluded, tranquil, fully self-contained, modern & comfortable, Escape is an award winning, creative, studio-style couples retreat nestled in native bush. Spa, cosy wood-fire, tree-surrounded deck, fully appointed kitchen, a backdrop of the spectacular Grampians & walking distance to Halls Gap.
There is a full refund* for cancellations due to govt COVID restrictions (*see below).

The space
Yes, we are secluded we have a double block nestled amid the trees giving it a very private feel. Please read our guest reviews - better to hear what they say than have us talk too much ourselves. But suffice to say, our reviews are a delight to us and out of respect for guests, we keep our prices competitive.

About the house: it is modern and quite luxurious, with many more personal creative touches. There is cast iron wood fireplace, a well stocked woodshed, a deluxe luxury spa bath for two, a split system aircon / heater, a raised balcony amid the trees which is one of my personal favourite elements of the house, views of the trees out of every window, a coffee / expresso / latte / cappuccino machine so you can have a decent coffee 'at home' without having to go out and buy one, a fully appointed kitchen with 4 burner electric stove, microwave, kettle BBQ, toastie maker, toaster, kettle, fridge and freezer and a full array of pots, pans, crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils, and a complimentary decent 'thanks for staying with us' bottle of wine on arrival.
Native wild and bird life abounds - kangaroos, an occasional emu or wallaby, cockatoos, kookaburras, rosellas, all frequent the property and I have planted a number of trees amid the native gums (banksias, grevillias, blossoming gums) which, when they grow, will attract a host of the smaller native birds.
The property is secluded and the house is set in the middle of one of the few remaining double bush blocks in the area. Escape enjoys its own driveway and parking area and very much does feel like an 'Escape'.

As a child of the early 70s, my family were intrepid backpackers on the adventure trail - Morocco, Thailand, Soulawesi, flying doctors in the Oz outback - adventure after adventure. When it came my time, I did the same, backpacking, adventuring, writing a book, taking photos and ultimately to combine this with documentary directing. Now as a family man, the adventures continue and we were based in South East Asia for nearly a decade, battling the tyranny of dictatorships - myself through media, my wife as an International Aid Worker. Now back in Australia, we continue our work from a home base in the beautiful Grampians where we also own and rent out "A Heavenly Escape'. Quite simply, when we were working overseas our 'R&R' was important to us and when we were looking at holidays rental properties my wife and I knew that this was the one that we would want to be staying in. So we bought it. In terms of my style as a host - friendship and courtesy is everything to visitors - I have experienced so much at the hands of people with nothing in countries on the brink. The hospitality industry should be exactly that - hospitable: polite, respectful, and providing guests with a service that makes them feel at ease. Cheers all, Timothy.
