House in Blairgowrie, VIC
This is the ultimate beach house, walking distance to the beach, close to golf courses, cafe's and wineries.
One of our guests said, "We had a fantastic 'Winter Escape' weekend at the Dunes. There was plenty of room for a large group of us, including 2 babies and a dog, and we had a ball. The open living/kitchen/dining space is perfect, and the log fire a real drawcard. We hope to be back soon! Thank you."
Another said ''We had an amazing time at The Dunes. The location is beautiful, the house is spacious and fantastically well appointed. We catered for large numbers and were able to do so with ease and comfort. Plus there are games, activities, seating, and decking galore. I would definitely recommend it!
The Dunes is a very spacious, beautifully furnished and decorated 2 storey modern beach house with all mod cons nestled amongst the tea trees but enjoying sun all day. Treeline views and only a short drive from Blairgowrie and Sorrento. Walking distance to fabulous back beaches and to die for views from the sand dunes.
Sleeps up to 18 in comfort so absolutely brilliant for that landmark celebration or for a wonderful family get to gether.
It is also often used for executive retreats and corporate team building. There are 2 huge separate lounge areas, 2 dining areas, 4 outdoor deck areas and 3 bathrooms. There is a huge and inviting open fireplace, with plenty of wood provided. Perfect for snuggling up next to with a bottle of red or a good book.
There is ample off street parking and even room for a boat.
Just pack your bags and arrive!
We've thought of everything. There is Foxtel upstairs and downstairs plus there are books galore, toys, cds, games, massive bean bags, huge stuffed toys and DVD's for the kids. The upstairs rumpus room is enormous and great for groups of people wanting to chill out and getaway from it all or for the kids to run around in.
They will never want to leave, there is also a table tennis table and Foosball table.
There is milk in the fridge and tea, coffee and sugar provided plus all the little things that make a difference like toiletries, oil, vinegar plus kitchen necessities like glad wrap, tea towels and mosquito spray in the welcome basket.
The supermarket in Blairgowrie is very well stocked with loads of fantastic deli items and the closest convenience store is 1k away.
You can walk to the back beach from the house in less than 10 minutes, through the National park. It's a great surf beach and at low tide the rockpools provide endless hours of entertainment for the kids - they are even big enough to jump in. This local beach even has a huge sand dune to climb up and run down. The views from the top are nothing short of spectacular

Terrific weekend away
We celebrated a 40th with a large group of families and thought that the beach house was perfect. The large open fireplace was a particular highlight, huge open areas and plenty of seating, so despite the good old Melbourne winter (solid rain) we had a party inside and enjoyed the space. It is beautifully tucked away amongst the ti trees and there was ample space to let the kids run free & the parents all catch up. Highly recommended.

We had an amazing weekend at The Dunes, what a gorgeous big, comfy, attractive home - we wanted somewhere to celebrate our wedding anniversary with our bridal party and all our children...we could not have found a better place. The house itself is fabulous, so much room and so many different areas for both adults and children. Even with 9 children in the house the adults had relaxing quiet spaces and the kids had a ball (we did not need to take a toy or book, there was so much provided for them). Location wise it's located so close to Portsea but also to the amazing sand dunes and rock pools we had no idea existed...... I'm so glad we did as recommended by the owners and took the walk, more than well worth it. We loved the house as did all our bridal party - we couldn't have asked for more and hope to return again & again. Thank you!

Big family, big house, it was perfect for a weekend away. Good location, very peaceful. The house was really well equipped, including toys and games for the kids.
Kitchen was great and the whole place was spotlessly clean

Unclean, dusty, unkempt and unfriendly
The house stank on arrival and needed to be aired out, there was still rubbish left over from the previous group. The photo's were far too generous for the state of the house, many of the lights didn't work. Brought up instruments to play between 12pm and 5 pm, a noise complaint was made and agent threatened to illegally withhold the bond if activity did not cease and lied about the level of acceptable noise, ignoring the laws on residential noise outlined by the 1970 Victorian Environment protection act.
