16 May 2017, The property is currently being refurbished and rebranded. New photos to be added to the listing in the next 14 days. Stay tuned.

Please note that the current photos of Bedrooms 3 and 4 are no longer current.

The Tri-bunks will be replaced this week with 2 single beds in each room and a third trundle bed x 1 in each room. The house will now sleep a maximum of 10.

The property is managed by Dufflebird and part of their small flock of unique getaways for the curious.


The house has lots of windows so even when inside, the view from each room is green, calming and inviting.

Inspired by the tradition and simplicity of Italy, The place has a relaxed elegant feel.

The owners have left their 70's holiday home unrenovated for a reason. Because it is fabulous as it is, and it has character. They have styled it with quality products and the result is 'spot on' . It has soul, style and its own unique flavour.

"This elegant coastal getaway is reminiscent of a romantic bygone era where people appeared to have more time and homes more space. Except..... that the fresh, breezy & contemporary feel reminds you that you are in the present. This juxtaposition gives the place its soul and character."

Eliza - 2012

Everything about the set up invites you to celebrate the joys of friends, family and togetherness .

Relaxed Holiday home Feel


" We loved the relaxed holiday home feel....and how quickly we felt settled and welcome. We especially liked the hidden away feel "

" I especially liked the garden and the tea tree and the breezy simplistic feel. I slept lots , read three books, and had wonderful swims.... A destination in its own right".

"My third visit and it keeps getting better. The moment I hit the start of that lovely street, I feel the excitement of a child....the garden is looking amazing"

"Always clean and nicely presented. We appreciate the extra mile, you take to make us feel like valued customers or regulars"

" warm and cozy with good functioning split systems and a lovely open fire.....I especially liked that we were able to use the bikes.."

"Everything you need is there....even to entertain and have a few friends over....love it that you allow us access to herbs, spices, oils, vinegars etc.....that really helps......it is those little things that made me think wow what a great feel"

" The kitchen was perfectly equipped, 'Global' knives and brilliant pots and pans"

"sitting on the main lawn late afternoon til dusk watching and listening to the' 'bird show' was magic especially with a glass of champagne."

"Privilege ......I loved feeling like I belonged in such an elite part of the world. I instantly felt welcome and at ease in the house. The whole experience was wonderful".

"Portsea is an idyllic beach haven for the who's who of Melbourne. The painted beach front bathing shacks, wooden jetties, tall pines give it a sleepy island feel. Think NYC's Long Island. Place@Portsea has nailed the relaxed holiday feel that you want a getaway to have."

"early check in and late check out really added to our absolutely delightful weekend. Everything you said it would be".

Seclusion and feeling of spaciousness.

Please Note: THIS IS NOT A PARTY HOUSE, and we need to be mindful of the impact on neighbours and permanent residents.

Place@Portsea is a friends and family escape.

It is a neat comfortable holiday house which feels nicely put together and loved by its owners.

We want to attract the sort of people who will enjoy and respect the place as much as they do.

It has been available for rent for just over 2 years. We have worked hard to iron out a lot of creases and really aim to deliver on promise.

We try to give early check in and late check out where possible usually can if not back to back bookings.

Portsea as a destination is as good as it gets Everyone should experience Portsea at least once in their life

Portsea is a place of "inexpressible elegance" - John Murray 1802
