Portsea Ponderosa has to be one of the best properties in Portsea and represents amazing value. This is a spectacular residence that backs onto the Portsea Golf Course and has expansive gardens that blend with the surrounding landscape. The long meandering driveway frames the stature of this beach residence. Portsea Ponderosa is an ideal property for an extended family and for those who love to entertain. Not only does the property spread itself across 2 blocks of land it generously houses up to 16 guests. There is plenty of space across 6 bedrooms and 3 living zones. The tennis courtis a fabulous feature as is the location. An easy walk to the Portsea Village and bay beach and a short drive to the Portsea Life Saving Club.

Living & Dining

The generous proportions of Portsea Ponderosa aims to please all guests. The central living zone is located on the ground floor and incorporates a large sized kitchen that will even satisfy the most fastidious chef. The modern edge design combines the kitchen with the informal living area to create an open plan living zone. The formal living room is also located in the same area and both these living zones have a gorgeous view of the deck, spa and garden. The lower level has a rumpus/games room and is complimented with full size billiard table and Plasma TV. On the upper is yet another living zone that has magnificent views over the rolling hills and the golf course. From here you can access a large deck that is basked in sun. Portsea Ponderosa has plenty of space to entertain or to find a place to hideaway and enjoy the solitude. Whilst this property is centrally located in the heart of Portsea you actually feel that you are somewhere quite secluded and remote.

Bed & Bath

Portsea Pondersosa comfortably accommodates 18 guests. This property is ideal for 2 families or 8 couples. The lower level is configured with 3 queen bedded rooms - 2 with ensuites and a kids/4th room with 2 bunk beds. The lower level also hosts a central bathroom and powder room. The upper level has 2 bedrooms and a second living room which doubles as a 3rd upstairs bedroom. 1 is a queen room and again there is another with 2 bunks beds. The upstairs living room offers 2 single beds. The upper level also has a central bathroom. All queen rooms feature flat screen TV's. One of the living zones has a Sofa Bed if you have additional guests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 star holiday accommodation! Our whole family enjoyed our stay - it was a perfect venue to host my husbands 80th birthday. All 16 of us - family and extended family had a fantastic and most relaxing time in an environment that was so warm and welcoming. The property was clean and so well presented with spacious living areas, comfortable bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, a dining area with the huge square dining table which accommodated all 16 of us. We happily made use of some of the facilities provided...the billiard room, tennis court, spa, fireplace. It was too cold to get into the swimming pool at this time of the year. Parking for our 7 cars was more than ample. It was a great pleasure dealing with the VVR Guest relations team who were always so professional and helpful with all our queries from the time we showed interest in renting the property in late January 2017. From the wonderful experience we have had, all of us will have no hesitation recommending a stay in Portsea Ponderosa to all our friends. It is definitely a 5 star holiday accommodation.
