Stay at Old Coach Road Estate
Immerse yourself in luxury while enjoying some of the best views on the Fleurieu Peninsula. OCRE sits majestically on the hillside overlooking a valley of open fields and native vegetation, down to the Southern Ocean. The delightful villa provides exceptional secluded accommodation perfect for a luxurious escape! Upon arriving at OCRE the relaxed ambience sets the scene for a wonderful stay with your absolute comfort assured. The lure of the open fire, breathtaking views and a magnificent master bedroom ensures a most memorable romantic getaway. Alternatively the gorgeous villa lends itself to a fabulous weekend away with friends or family with its three king bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and large fully equipped kitchen, outdoor setting and BBQ. Your booking includes complimentary tea and coffee pods, a selection of cereals and local Fleurieu milk, and a bottle of sparkling wine to enjoy with a range of local treats.
The fantastic master bedroom is huge, and has the most amazing views through floor-to-ceiling double glazed windows. The bedroom opens onto your own deck which extends on two sides of the room. An en-suite bathroom with rainwater shower, comfy king bed with hotel quality linen and soft, fluffy gowns and slippers are ready for your use. A reverse cycle air-conditioner, ceiling fan and block-out blinds ensure your comfort all year round.
The views are spectacular by day and gorgeous by night with the twinkling lights of the coastal town of Victor Harbor caressing the sea. On clear new-moon nights the stars provide a spectacular display and, for the amateur astronomer, the telescope in the master bedroom provides great views. Should you wish to enhance your stay with an astronomical experience, please see our "What to Do - At the Estate" page.
Bedroom 2 and Bedroom 3
The additional bedrooms also have reverse cycle air-conditioning and ceiling fans. Both bedroom 2 and bedroom 3 can be configured to have either a king bed or two single beds and also gowns and slippers for each guest. A double sofa-bed is also available in the study adjacent to the master bedroom if required for additional guests.
A lovely claw-footed bath, separate shower and separate toilet service bedrooms 2 and 3 with a powder room ensuring plenty of space for everyone when preparing for a night out.

Commitment to Environment
We are totally committed to preserving and enhancing the natural environment at OCRE and our original Pambula farm. Management of the feral weeds, protection of the natural waterways and the creation of habitat corridors has already returned benefits to the environment and the biodiversity. We provide our guests with opportunities to minimise their impact upon the environment with an onsite SubPod for composting, collection of recyclables and all water is collected onsite with onsite wastewater management. The renovation of OCRE included installation of double glazing for all external doors and windows and solar panels were added. Enhancement of the natural environment requires ongoing commitment with native species of trees and shrubs local to the region being planted every year. Guests at OCRE can enjoy the sounds of the frogs and birds that have returned to the property in increasing numbers each year, and get close to nature through the nature walks. See 'What to Do' section for more information.
