Madison Eltringham and Shane Maliki, Founders

Living locally in Marengo, as a family we share a great love for the region and all of its beauty. Our boys go to school in Apollo Bay and we skate, surf, fish and explore the area any chance we get! Ocean View Properties (OVP) is a partnership and a passion. From the get-go our projects have been influenced by our love of design, family, travel, and the sometimes even greater love of coming “home”.

We are passionate about creating spaces that are unusual, unique and stand out from the rest! For us its about going back to the roots of hospitality and offering not only accommodation, but an experience to remember. From our humble beginnings of a cleaning and maintenance business, that quickly merged into a boutique management company (OVP) and then expanded into us creating our own accommodation projects- we have not followed some grand business plan. Ideas arise, properties present themselves, we get inspired and we just keep moving with it, saying yes. That’s how OVP has evolved: organically.

Including developing and crafting spaces for others (which we love!) we have also created the very successful "The Wrens Nest" from an old run down cottage in the heart of Forrest and we are soon to unveil "The Mahalo Beach Bus" a hop, skip and a jump from Marengo Beach!

Purchased a property in the area and you're not quite sure where to start? We would be happy to help! Beautiful, fun and inspiring accommodation is our passion!

The Wrens Nest, Forrest
