Set in a picturesque coastal/country landscape near Cape Liptrap, 'Lara' is situated on 5 acres surrounded by old growth gums, coastal banksias, flowering gardens and no neighbours. Centrally located to some of the most stunning beaches in Victoria, this is an amazing place to holiday.
A unique property which boasts a combination of space, seclusion, and a brilliant layout, ideal for friends and families to spend great times together.
Tranquil rural views compliment this 'Mid Century Modern' architectural classic which will provide you with space and comfort to relax and be re-energised.
Inside you'll find 5 bedrooms offering flexible sleeping options, a well equipped kitchen, two living spaces, formal and informal indoor dinning areas and large living room with a wonderful open fire, so you can sit back and relax whatever the weather.
Then there's a full size fenced tennis court, table tennis table or trampoline if you're after some active fun and at night the most stars you'll ever see in the sky!
Fantastic for families with kids…Get out and about: Visit Cape Liptrap Lighthouse, explore the old Limekilns, Fossick in the rock pools at Walkerville and grab an ice-cream from the kiosk, swim, surf, fish at any of the local beaches or spend time exploring wonderful Wilsons Prom.
Back at the house there is space for the kids to run, jump, skip, explore, along with a children's playroom filled with toys and games.
The kids will have so much fun they'll be asleep in no time…and it's so quiet they wont wake up!…then it's over to the adults for some wining and dining.

Equipped for the whole family...
The house is single level…no stairs…so ideal for all ages, especially little ones who like to explore or older guests who just want to take it easy.
When your travelling with the family we know the car is generally full with just the food and the kids!
So we've equipped the house with a host of toys and practical items that hopefully help lighten your load.
2 portacots and extra cot mattress available, along with a highchair.
The laundry is spacious and has a brand new Front loader washing machine, large trough and sink, clothesline, clothes airer and iron ironing board.
Little toys for little people to play with in the bathroom…even some bubbles to make it more fun.
Big buckets of chalk so the kids can let their imagination go wild and showcase their talents as pavement artists. The verandah around Lara is great for a chalk drawing or 6!
A range of small bikes are left out in the carport…you are welcome to find one that fits your size and pedal around our beautiful long driveway.
The toy room is packed with fun, interesting toys for little ones, little chairs and table, paper, pencils, duplo, cars, trucks, jigsaws, kites, even buckets and spades to take to the beach.
For big kids and adults, the tennis court (raquets/balls supplied) and table tennis, crazy catch, baseball, bocce, footy & soccer balls, cricket sets even a couple of boogy boards for summer waves.
No one will be bored at night with the big flat screen TV and theatre sound DVD and HUGE selection of popular DVD's to choose from.
Also a small TV in the lounge room but really watching a cosy fire is the best viewing in that room.
The games cupboard in the hallway is packed with every great boardgame around…junior and senior versions, quality ravensburger jigsaws and card games to keep you up into the wee small hours.
Our friendly resident chooks 'Lara and Layla' will ensure you have a couple of fresh eggs for breakfast….while they cant quite supply a whole group the best fun is finding those two little eggs waiting for you every morning…our petite cane basket perfect for the smallest member to carry them back from the nest.
The kitchen is ready for action with a large 500 litre fridge freezer, Bar fridge, microwave, dishwasher, and older style double oven.
Bathrooms consist of 3 showers (one level entry), the en suite shower, 1 bathroom with bath and 1 shower up the top end of the house is great for rinsing off the kids- big and small- after a sandy day at the beach. 3 toilets.
"It was a magical time. You are very lucky to have such a place!"
"Just wanted to say we had a fantastic time in Lara at the weekend. The house is just brilliant. So well equipped and appointed to local beaches the Prom etc.
We will be back if you will have us again! A Winter break with also be lovely, you have fantastic open fires etc!"
"Just wanted to say thankyou for having Lara open to the public to stay. Our group had a wonderful weekend of table tennis, tennis and beach."
"Thank you for everything. The house was wonderful and we all had a fabulous time, specially the kids. Most definitely we will knock on your door again."
"I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful hospitality and accommodation over the weekend!
The house and its surrounds are just stunning and we all had a wonderful time."
"The weather was wet, but as I like to explain to others... Lara is large enough to allow 7 children to get lost in the house and when weather permits, outside (requiring little supervision!!) Dinner sat nite was wonderful because the fires were raging and the red wine sublime"
"Many thanks to you for having us stay at Lara. We all had a wonderful time and your property is just lovely. The design of the house is really clever with the separate living area's and bedrooms and we were very comfortable and cosy, especially with the open fire. The kids loved the tramp and the table tennis and the visiting wallaby was a highlight. We had good weather and seeing the stars so clearly at night was a treat."
"We all had a fabulous weekend at Lara. The weather held until Monday and we even managed lunch in the sun on Saturday. The kids loved the property and happily collected eggs from the chickens. We were warm from the fires and enjoyed three big hearty dinners at the table. Your house is superb and the views (especially from the road across the fields to the ocean) were to die for. We had a fantastic weekend and could not have asked for a more fantastic location. We loved it so much, that most of us want to return the same time next year."
"Thanks again for a wonderful holiday!. We had good weather during the day and got to go to the beach swimming. There were lots of wildlife around including a big fat wombat. The boys had great success fishing too this year. We love it so much down there we had a look around to see if there were places for sale but I think your property is hard to live up to!. "
"Just wanted to say thank you for the lovely weekend we enjoyed again at Lara. We had the most fantastic time - the kids were in heaven and we barely saw them for 3 days! We will certainly hope to return in 2011 so will be in touch in the new year to book it in."
"We had a wonderful weekend at your property. The holiday was a new experience for us with the beautiful surroundings and the wildlife. We visited the Cape Liptrap lighthouse but most of all we wanted to spend quality time with our families and we were able to do that because of the quite location and breathtaking views. We will always remember this holiday. "
"Our family had a fantastic time. Even though it was a little overcast, there was very little rain during the day - mostly overnight - which sounds so lovely to go to sleep to! We really loved being so remote and away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The kids adored the chickens. Along with the budding atrists, there was many a game of football played on the "MCG" out the front. Including a litlle footwork, running races and being timed around the driveway! "
"Thanks for our wonderful holiday. We really had such a great time - perfect house for entertaining young children. We did The Prom, both Walkervilles (walked the cliffs), The lighthouse, The Espy pub at Inverlock, the sand-dunes at Sandy Point, and lots of house based activities.
My 5 yo learnt how to ride without trainers. I knitted a scarf. The dads lit a fire in the brazier they found in the shed and chopped wood to their hearts content.... Yep - perfect...."
