  • Description


    We are a couple in our early 60's. Bob is a professional voice actor and Denise is a Doctor. Our place is 4 hectares of heaven with sheep, alpacas and many fruit trees. We love the life of Apollo Bay and enjoy our extensive garden and beautiful geography. We prefer to eat local produce and tread lightly on the environment.
