Welcome to the new and excitingly exuberant beach house 'Portsea' Sister to the extremely sought after 'Lucy's Escape' at Culburra. Named and designed with the famous beach boxes of Portsea Victoria in mind this newly renovated and custom built home has been painstakingly crafted with the holiday guest at the fore. Only 50m from direct access to beautiful Culburra Beach and situated in a street that is a member of the "Golden Mile" stretch, this delightful home awaits for you to make it your beach house

'Portsea' is a wildly different home that has at its heart an enormous outdoor entertaining area that needs to be seen to be believed, 140 square metres of timber decking awaits you, facing north and receiving beautiful sun no matter what the season. Following the vibrant colours and designs of the beach boxes the rear elevation of the property is a replica of those boxes and each gable has been individually mastered with its own individual design and colour palate.

The first level of decking is completely undercover and is "all weather". It boasts a feature wall that is a handcrafted work of art using timber, colour and glass tiles, an enormous timber dining table, lounge area for coffee or breakfast, a BBQ with two gas bottles always available, and a sink with running hot and cold water. Access to main living area is via huge glass sliding doors. Lighting can also be of your choice, 'SCG" lighting, romantic soft lighting or bunker lighting. Dining will be an exceptional experience no matter what the weather or time of day

On the second level of decking you will find two by two sunbeds, just perfect for those lazy days in the sun or that "cheeky" afternoon nap. It is also where you will find the most amazing outdoor shower with privacy screen and an explosion of colour that will have you showering outside under the 'Milky Way' and with the fireplace roaring.

Speaking of the fireplace a bespoke, hand crafted open fireplace stands proudly on the third and final level. Built from 150 year old reclaimed bricks and with an outdoor bespoke dining table at its hearth many nights will be spent by the fire enjoying a quiet drink all watched over by 'Pete the Pelican' All timber and kindling supplied. This level also includes a 'Retro' caravan fully decked out with TV, bar sink, fridge and beanbags for simply "chilling" or a place for the kids to play.

All this is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and manicured lawns including your own orchard. Dog owners will also rest easy knowing that the rear garden is fully enclosed by brand new six foot fences and full length lockable side gates. No escapees Conditions apply to pets.

Internally the house evolves around a combined living/dining area that flows seamlessly onto the outside undercover entertaining area. It has quirky inclusions such as lead light feature windows and a feature wall lit by portrait lighting. A large comfy sofa, TV, Blu-Ray, DVD's and a stereo that is iPod and Blu Tooth compatible are supplied for your enjoyment, reverse cycle aircon for your comfort. A new and extensively supplied kitchen is part of this great space. Inclusions are full fan forced oven, induction cook top, microwave and dishwasher.

Sleeping arrangements for up to 8 have been catered for by one large master bedroom with its own gorgeous ensuite shower room and TV. Tastefully decorated this space flows effortlessly onto the undercover deck via a large sliding glass door, bringing the outside in. Reverse cycle air conditioning is also fitted in this room. A second queen room exists along with a bedroom that contains two low line bunk beds Australian Standards sleeping four.

All additional bedrooms are serviced by a generous shower room that also houses the integrated laundry. This includes washing machine and sink. All pegs, laundry detergent, basket, iron/ironing board and cleaning equipment are supplied.

'Portsea' has been meticulously crafted to enhance the stay of our guests. We take exceptional pride in our homes and what they offer including cleanliness and upkeep see Reviews Lucy's Escape. The proximity to the beach and the local village, which includes Woolworths, is exceptional. We hope you choose to visit and possibly return

Rated 5 out of 5 by from South Coast Gem We had people travel from all over to Portsea and everyone loved the property and the weekend away. Culburra sure is the perfect hub to discover the south coast. Not to mention this AMAZING property. It's perfect for a group of adults to sit back and relax. We had wet weather but this property was perfect rain, hail or shine. Such incredible attention to detail and we can't wait to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous house, relaxing holiday Absolutely loved our time at Portsea. The house is modern, spotless & all your needs are catered for down to the smallest detail. We were incredibly comfortable whether we were on the go or just chilling. We had a few rainy days & were not cooped up in the house because of it. We could still enjoy the outdoors on the very comfortable, multi-purpose deck. We spent a lot of time chilling on that deck! The caravan was a nice touch as the kids were thrilled to have their own space, which added to our relaxation. Chris & Kim have taken a lot of care to make sure their guests are comfortable & you can feel the heart & soul that they have put into making Portsea a home away from home. All they want is for their guests to relax & enjoy the home as if it were their own, and that we did! Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Family and Pet Friendly Luxury What a find - not only is Culburra Beach and it's lovely, quiet little town a hidden gem, but Portsea is amazing. The owners have done an amazing job on the renovation and thought of almost everything to make their house perfect for a truly wonderful, relaxing beach holiday. The inclusion of a coffee machine would be great. We took our own thanks to a helpful review! The house is not large, but very well laid out and and the enormous, incredible deck triples the living space. Super clean, lovely bedding, lots of blankets - the caravan was an excellent bonus too! The kids loved snuggling is there on the bean bags watching a movie. We lit the outdoor fireplace each night and roasted marshmallows! The sensational Culburra Beach is an easy 3 minute walk making this the ultimate spot a for a family beach holiday. Portsea is very pet friendly too! A large level back yard - lots of grass and high secure fencing and gates. We could not recommend Portsea and Kim, the owner more highly!!! The kids (and us) are already thinking about our next trip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect weekend We had a fantastic family weekend celebrating a birthday. The owner was quick to reply and a pleasure to deal with. The house is beautifully styled inside ( it feels like it's had a nice professional touch) with everything feeling very new and very clean. The amazing two level deck was used for coffee in the morning, hanging out in the lounges and enjoying the evening. So many places to relax- hammock, beanbags, lounge chairs, swing bench. We loved the outdoor fireplace, the outdoor shower (perfect after a day at the beach which is only a short stroll away) & the little handheld shower in the front yard to rinse our sandy feet... & dog! There was even a decent size grass area for him. The eclectic caravan outback was adorable - we so wanted to watch a movie in there on the beanbags but ran out of time! It was a lovely place to stay with a touch of whimsy, the fireplace made our night. My only requests would be a coffee machine (maybe only add it if requested & part of deposit...), a tray to carry food/dishes out to the beautiful outdoor area, and the hammock is a little too tight on the frame so quite unstable to try & lie on. It did make for some funny attempts though! And in summer there would be some need for shade on the lower deck (an umbrella?) as it was a beautiful weekend while we stayed but it was too hot in direct sun and a bit stuffy up on the upper deck in the middle of the day. These are certainly not 'bad' things, only suggestions for what is already a wonderful place. Thank you for letting us enjoy 'Portsea'. We hope to be back.
