BALI VIEW - A Balinese inspired retreat in a peaceful and private bushland setting with immediate lake and mountain views, and furnished in the traditional Indonesian style.

This unique two bedroom house sits on an elevated lakeside property of 25 acres with a sunny north-easterly aspect and comprises two building pavilions with high raked ceilings and exposed beams connected by a covered breezeway and surrounded by covered verandahs and a large open deck area set amongst surrounding tree tops.

The main pavilion comprises an open plan living/lounge, dining and kitchen area the kitchen with Caesar stone benchtops, 'state of the art' appliances and an indoor/outdoor servery bar, a bathroom and the smaller of the two bedrooms accommodated. The open plan living area opens onto a covered verandah area via concertina doors.

The second pavilion comprises the main bedroom with full height glazing showcasing the elevated north easterly outlook along with a luxuriously appointed ensuite bathroom with natural concrete stepping stones set amidst loose riverstone pebbles, a walk-in robe, deep freestanding bath, and indoor/outdoor shower recesses. The ensuite bathroom is featured in the 2008 Winter edition of COAST LIVING lifestyle magazine Page 120/Photo 9.

Natural rough hewn cypress pine logs form the supporting posts to the covered verandah and breezeway areas of the building with stainless steel wire balustrading to maximize the pleasant north easterly outlook from the elevated verandah and deck areas of the house.

The house contains quality inclusions: dishwasher, Ilve gas oven and stove, full-size refrigerator, a 42 inch flat screen full HD TV, radio/CD player and DVD player and a 6-seat dining table. Outdoor facilities include a four-burner gas BBQ with hood and side burner, an outdoor dining setting for 6 people, and two sun lounges with cushions. Books, magazines and board games are also provided.

The house sleeps 4 people and is most suitable as an intimate setting for one or two couples, or a small family two adults and two children. The house is also suitable for small catered functions and get-togethers, subject to prior approval and arrangement.

A holiday retreat with a difference which combines all modern conveniences within a luxurious, peaceful and private lakeside bushland setting.

Please note that the property is not fenced and there is a small open pond located some 60 metres to the rear of the house which is required for bushfire fighting purposes.

For this reason we ask that guests ensure their children don't venture beyond the large cleared area of the land which surrounds the house unattended.

Also, the property next door to the left of the house is a wildlife sanctuary caring for injured wildlife mainly wallabies. If you do own a dog or cat, please ensure that your pet is not permitted to roam unrestrained around the property.

If you intend to stay at Bali View with your pet, it is important that you advise us at the time of your accommodation enquiry. Please indicate the age, number and breed of your pet/s in the 'comments' section of your enquiry. We thank you in advance for your co-operation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful, secluded, comfortable and relaxing! We recently enjoyed our family Christmas break at Bali View.....a fantastic week long, peaceful and relaxing stay! The house has been very stylishly and tastefully designed with lots of 'Bali' type modern elements to create a holiday vibe. There's a great cross flow of breeze that comes through the house when opened up. The separate pavilion and outdoor shower was fantastic and felt like you were 'glamping'. The kitchen was so well stocked with all dining and cookware items...everything you would use at home....perfect for those who like to cook. The house is remote from neighbours, but just a short drive to the lakes, beaches etc. We quite happily sat around for hours on the verandah just relaxing and enjoying being amongst the nature and wildlife! We'll definately be staying again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace and tranquility! Great spot, away from it all with lovely bush views. Loved the parents retreat area, all you could need in the kitchen, very relaxing. A fan in 2nd bedroom would be great.
